Ultima IX - Day 11

After cleansing the shrine in Yew I made my way back to the docks in Britain to meet up with Raven..but she was not there. In our last conversation she told me to meet her in the docks in Britain but she was nowhere to be found. WTF? I tried restoring a game to make sure that she was not trapped in Dungeon Wrong and that I had to somehow cut her free. Nooo…that would be too easy. I had to head back to the Court house in Yew and let the proceedings finish so that our names would be cleared.

Ultima IX - Day 10

My time between posts is getting pretty crazy. Side tracked is an understatement.

In my last posting I was ready to enter into the dungeon of Wrong, rescue Raven and return with the glyph. I remember Wrong from Ultima VII part 2, loaded with teleports, puzzles and long winding corridors. Wrong in Ultima IX is pretty confusing too. I think the confusing part is the sub level between levels. It's the jail section where all the prisoners are kept. To get pasted certain gates and locked doors you need to travel through it.


The dungeons contain lots of nasty torture devices. Ye olde iron maiden in the corner. The thing that is different with dungeon Wrong is that you can’t kill the guards. If they catch you your teleported back to your cell. The trick is to try and not get caught. After playing Skyrim you do notice the AI is pretty crap in the game. Read More...

Ultima IX - Day 9

Well its been five months between posts. I sort of got side tracked...


After cleansing the shrine of sacrifice I headed back to Britain (after several crashes grrr) and spoke with Lord British. He informed me that his astrologers have detected that the columns are pulling the moons into Britannia. Chaos will be upon us and soon all of Britannia will be destroyed. Not good, sounds like the guardian has HAARP technology and is not only creating earthquakes.

Lord British also told me that there is a secret route to Yew. Aha, I knew that mountain looked strange. With the magic that was forbidding the entrance to the cave removed I made my way through. My pike seems to slice the goblins to bits.
