Abandonware DOS title

The Aethra Chronicles

The Aethra Chronicles is not a well know fantasy RPG, but it deserves some praise. It was developed by only one person (Micheal Lawrence) and, as the title implies, was intended to be the first volume of a saga. Unfortunately, volume two and three were never made. For a shareware game, Aethra was pretty solid and is still loved by the ones who played it back in the 90s.

    A rare gem (for its time). Too bad there's only Volume One.
