More information about LambdaRogue:

Mankind's Redemption ...

... is hidden in the depths of a dungeon. So say the old legends, and
so spoke the priestess.

Now you're standing here, all alone, with nothing but your weapon, a
small backpack and your skills, facing some of your greatest fears.
For hours, you've been hunted through constantly changing dungeons and
caves chased by wild animals, by preachers of a sinister cult, and
by abhorrent spawns of the evil goddess Eris.

Finally you get some rest, regaining your psychic powers and pondering
to return to the Temple. But the safe havens of mankind are far away,
the journey back to the Temple would last longer than the way before
you. So you decide to go on, deeper and deeper, always searching for
traces of the Book.

The only book that matters these days. The Book that will set mankind
free. The Book of Stars.

'Per Libris Ad Astra', spoke the priestess to you: 'To the Stars,
Through Books.' However, this way is a dangerous way, a path through
neverending darkness.

And the evil goddess Eris is already lurking for you ...
