Bad news everybody!

Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

One of the most original but underrated strategy games of all time, Cavewars is a refreshing fantasy wargame that adds the Z-axis to the traditional two-dimension game map, adding a whole new dimension (pardon the pun) to familiar turn-based play. Each of the depth-dwelling races you can lead also has unique characteristics that call for different strategy to win, With unique and compelling gameplay, tough AI, random maps, and the variety of monsters and spells you can research make Cavewars one of my most favorite fantasy strategy games.

The game has some rarely used ideas, such as the multi-level underground terrain and the possibility (well, rather a need) of tunneling and finding special ores. It also includes both tech and magic ways of combat etc.

The biggest downside for me was the lack of a manual (come on, you can't buy this game legally anywhere). Without an in-game help, I have no idea of the different races' special abilities or for some details about how combat is done (such as magic vs technology). Anyone know of a manual? Can't find it on the net :-(

Also, the combat itself is automatic, which is a shame compared to the earlier Master of Magic. It would probably be too much of a MoM rip-off if it included the same combat system, not to mention the buildings etc, still I would like it much better, thinking of it as an add-on.
