Welcome to Thuryl's Blades of Exile, and Possibly at Some Point in Time
Blades of Avernum, Page, With an Excessively Long and Now Outdated
Acronym! If you don't know what Blades of Exile and Blades of Avernum
are, please allow me to direct you to Spiderweb
Software, makers of these fine shareware RPG design systems for
both Macintosh and Windows.
At the moment, this site includes download
locations for my BoE scenarios and a list of the default item graphic
sheets for BoA. I hope you find my site useful; just don't ask how to
pronounce its title.
Many thanks to Matt "Djur" Boeh of the Desperance
Network for hosting this site.
My BoE Scenarios
A BoE implementation of the classic text-based game Hunt the Wumpus. You are trapped in
a cave with some truly bizarre geometry, with one arrow and one target
for it. Can you brave the hazards of the cave and hunt down the Wumpus?
This scenario was the winner of the Don't Fix The Shark Contest, a BoE
contest which required authors to place limitations on themselves. Hunted! contains no text messages,
no monsters or combat, and takes place entirely in one town. It's
entirely frivolous, but good for a few minutes of amusement.

Hunted! for Macintosh or Windows (18 kB)
You awaken outside a mansion with no memory of your identity. Who are
you and how did you come to be here? Only time will tell, but for you
time may be running out.
Status: Released. Latest version: 1.1.1
Download location: Because Roots
is provided with a prefabricated party, separate versions have been
provided for Mac and Windows. Be sure to play the scenario using the
party provided in the file named "Dirac" (Mac) or "dirac.sav"
(Windows). Using any other party will ruin the plot.

A GIF file listing all the default BoA item
graphic sheets. Several item graphics are "orphans" (not used for any
of the default BoA items), which means that to use them you'd normally
have to mess around in the BoA data files to find their sheet number.
This file is designed to save you the trouble of doing that. It can be

Graphic Adjuster (by Niemand)
This program was written by Niemand, who has graciously allowed me to
host it here for him. It's for Macintosh only, and can open up a BoA
scenario custom graphics file (or a BoA default graphics file) and
adjust any of the graphics in them. If you want to experiment with what
icon_adjust fields work best for a particular graphic, this is the
utility for you.
