OK so to all the people who are playing or played Escape from the Pit at some point: Is Avernum worth picking up as a modern version of this game? It's dirt cheap on Steam as I type this..
I've posted my comments in this thread, but in summary:
I sunk 87 hours into Avernum: Escape from the Pit. It was entertaining enough to sink that many hours into, but at some point the quest tree became way too convoluted for me. There was no end in sight for the game and I kept wandering around solving quest after quest wondering if I was even near the end of the game. I eventually DNF the game at 87 hours. I got frustrated because I could not tell if I was making progress toward the end game.
The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.
