I'm back, and will be checking in, occasionally.

Why was I gone? You see, a funny thing happened while I was in a hospital, getting four neck discs replaced. The funny thing was, I got four neck...

The 1.0 release was braindead as far as diplomatic AI was concerned--literally. But they improved upon it. It was far better than in its successor, though I still prefer Master of Magic in terms of...

There should be a list of temples in the GameFAQs strategy guide. I remember one being in the north-south road leading from your starting position to the capitol. Once you find additional temples,...

Nor have I. They're more aggressive about declaring war. Otherwise, they're no wiser about planetary construction, battles, or diplomacy.

I see the screens, but I've never seen the color in a released DOS version. Weird.

I don't think that's the DOS version, unless Crawford reissued it with coloration later on, and I missed the change.

Not sure what images you're referring to in color. Can you provide a couple of links? Because I reviewed it when it came out--have my copy, still--and it's in B&W.

You can't. Unless I missed something, at the end of Ultima IV and V your character returned to the real world. At the start of Ultima VI they are drawn back to Brittania, without any preparation.

Not since April. I frankly wouldn't have expected many, but if they were going to start a FB page, they should have realized that people would use it to, well, communicate.

Last was in April:



They don't seem to post much, which is foolish if you're going to maintain an FB page, since that's pretty much it's main function: establishing and keeping contact with others.

I have to agree with Aren. This is one of *the* prime game candidates for a modern do-over, in my opinion. It really had a very solid, complex strategy/RPG/sim engine underneath, and good combat...

I'm guessing you took the direct route to him. What you wanted to do was work your way around and investigate...
