The internet resembles a crack trebuchet team at the moment, hurling game deals at us from all directions. A host of indie RPGs from Spiderweb Software are on offer through the current Humble Weekly Sale, all available DRM-free in a pay-what-you-want offer. The sale also gives you the option to split your payment, in any way you want, among the Spiderweb developers, charity, or as a tip to Humble Bundle itself.


Avadon 2: The Corruption announced, get your old-school role-playing here

I enjoyed the old-fashioned isometric RPG Avadon, despite having a few raging issues with the interface, so the news that it's getting a sequel makes my mouth do that upside-down-frown thing. If it's anything like previous Spiderweb Software titles, Avadon 2: The Corruption is unlikely to be too different, mechanically, from the original game, but a new story set in that richly detailed world sounds just fine. This new game - the second part of a trilogy - features five character classes (up from Avadon's four), and tasks you with trying to "save your homeland from civil war and fiery destruction". One would be bad enough, but both? You should definitely put a stop to that, I reckon.
