Avert Word Cruft.
* UnusableEnemyEquipment: Averted ''hard''. If an enemy has an item, you can take it off his corpse. Yes, even the lich's zombie servant's mace [[NightmareFuel made out of human bones]]. And the [[{{Squick}} ogre's loincloth]]. The only items you can't pick up are the clothing that the nonhumans and women are wearing (which you wouldn't be able to use anyway) and the ones on the magically-conjured masses of mindless Sha'Ahoul wariors that start disintegrating as soon as you kill them. And the clothing and shields used by the walking skeletons you fight at one point, but they're rotten anyway.

* MoneySpider: Averted and played straight at the same time--the only enemies with money are the ones who have been looting the ruined town for the past few months, but they tend to have gear that you can haul back to the castle and sell to the merchants there...if you can fit it in your GridInventory.

-->'''Played any good books lately?''' The ''Siege of Avalon'' was the first and only game produced by Digital Tome. It was published by Global Star Software, which later became 2K Play, and when problems arose between them, Digital Tome disbanded. Originally, the game was available for download online. The first chapter was free; the other five were not. It was later released in an anthology on a CD, which can still be found either online or in some brick-and-mortar stores that don't move their video game inventory very quickly. A sequel called the ''Pillars of Avalon'' was planned, but never produced.

* FridgeLogic: You can ask an undead skeleton to use the Chalice of Life to purify an area of dark magic. He can't use it, or he'll be destroyed. LampshadeHanging ensues: -->'''Bones:''' It's the Chalice of Life, not the Chalice of Undeath! * GoddamnBats: The insane cave lurkers that wander the tunnels are not very dangerous, but they're in the area you have to pass through quite a few times, and there are dozens of them. The undead skeletons in the crypt are only slightly more dangerous (except for the ones that use magic), but they're far more numerous. Fortunately they stay dead once you kill them.

* AllMythsAreTrue: If you go digging through the massive number of books (enough to rival TheElderScrolls), you can read about an ancient city that was supposedly blessed by its goddess, which was destroyed when her temple was profaned and she sunk it underground and cursed the inhabitants. Then you can go into the caves under the castle and talk to the horribly mutated, apparently immortal survivors, who have been trapped there for centuries. And even later, you can meet their goddess herself, the [[GuardianOfTheMultiverse Astral Guardian]]. You can even get them changed back, if you bother to follow that (optional) storyline.

* FictionalDocument: Enough to rival TheElderScrolls. No, really. And they're the only way to get the backstory of the war in which you're involved.

As the game begins, you have just arrived at the castle Avalon looking for your war hero brother, Corvus, in order to inform him that your father has died and that he is now a lord. After doing so, you join in the defense of the castle. [[ItGotWorse Everything goes downhill from there.]] War, intrigue, political maneuvering, treason, and the slaughter of countless {{mooks}} later, the siege of the castle is finally broken...by the attacking Sha'Ahoul horde breaching the defenses, leading to a showdown between you and the BigBad, Mithras, in the castle courtyard.
