Join in the many discussions about and activities inspired by Spiderweb Software's Exile Trilogy and Blades of Exile.

Spiderweb's newest series, Avernum, also has a mailing list (along with their Nethergate game).


A BOE Chat is on the IRC (internet relay chat) server - and/or It uses an IRC client program, see Tucows for a list of programs for both the Windows and Macintosh OSs. Check the the message board at Alcritas' Lyceum for the times.

Other chats with no times listed (i.e. they are inactive):
    The Exile 3 chat room at the Unofficial Exile 3 Tourist Guide page (Geocities).
    An Exile 3 Chat room is at King Vothkaro's Realm.


Arenax999 founded the Blades of Exile Scenario Design Club - A club for BOE designers - 6 June 1999. "Blades of Exile scenario designers, come here!" [The last post is 30 June 1999 - "This club is going nowhere..." by Aceron]


Spiderweb Software, the makers of the Exile role playing game series, had the First scenario contest to recognize outstanding scenarios. Alcritas has taken over where Spiderweb has left off and has administered the other scenario contests at The Olympia - the official site for Blades of Exile contests.

Also, surf to the other major sites in the Blades Webring for opinion polls and other contests.
