The Aethra Chronicles
The Aethra Chronicles downloads
The Aethra Chronicles was based on the Rolemaster game system, a Pencil & Paper role playing game. It was developed mostly as a one-man project by Michael Lawrence with some help from others for the graphics and sound/music.
The first volume 'Celystra's Bane' was made and released; it contained three chapters: 'The Book of Prophecy', 'Gems of Power' and 'Demons Might'. As was typical with shareware games, the first chapter could be freely distributed, with the other two available only to registered users. The second and third volumes were never made. Because the shareware version only contained a single chapter, some people assumed that the second and third 'chapters' (instead of Volumes) were never made and the game was left incomplete.
