About to start Avadon series. How's it compare to ave/gen?

Extensive story with lots of history and factions to deal with and explore.

 

Combat mechanics gets harder in later games where Jeff removes exploits that allow you to evade damage even on the hardest difficulties. There is some dispute on which are the better classes because picking abilities is very important in fighting. You are forced with the class skill trees into different characters unlike the other games.

 

I liked the second game in that it has the funniest material and all 5 classes.

Having a lot of factions is interesting in theory, but unlike in Geneforge where each game is mostly open and you can aid factions depending on your ideological preferences, in the Avadon games you're basically on rails and your options are "do what you are ordered" and "do what you are ordered, but grudgingly". 2 is the only one of them with any sort of actually branching story depending on your choices, and the "branch" essentially amounts to playing through a different map halfway through the game.
