ADOM takes place in the fictional world of Ancardia, in the mountainous Drakalor Chain. For 6,000 years, it has known relative peace, but recently reports have spread of the appearance of dangerous dungeons and frightening monsters. Khelavaster, a wise sage, discovers an ancient prophecy regarding the Coming of Chaos and propagates it to the peoples of the world. It speaks of a champion who will defend the world from the forces of Chaos in the Drakalor Chain. Hearing of this prophecy, many would-be heroes set out. The player assumes control of one such adventurer.

On a side note, Thomas was floating this around Usenet and the BBS networks for a couple of years before the release date stated above. ISTR messing with a beta version around 1992, and the release being announced in 1994. Picked nits aside, it was a fairly stable code pile, although arguably several years -behind- its time. Had it come out a decade earlier, either as a stand-alone game or a BBS door, it would be remembered as a standard setter.

Not sure if this counts as abandonware, but it's free either way. The project is being resurrected:
