Yeah that was the big downside to Avadon, it had a compelling story, but it was missing the exploration that is present in other Spiderweb games. Escape from the Pit was the other way around, you have an extremely open world with a ton of freedom, probably the most of any spiderweb game, but the story often feels like more of an afterthought.

Part of the reason Avernum 5 and 6 were so good, was that they managed to do a good job with the both the story and with giving you a reasonably open world to explore.

Also content wise, considering the time I played these games, Avernum is about 50% bigger than Avadon.
