The Ultima series was created by Richard Gariott
and includes Ultima 1-9, Ultima Underworld
1 and 2, and Ultima Online
. In the Ultima universe, Lord British
is Richard Gariott's alter ego
and is the benevolent ruler of the medieval
land of Britannia
. The player usually takes the role of the Avatar
and wanders the land of Britannia trying to fix whatever's gone wrong this time.
I may describe the systems of magic in the Ultima series at some point.
