Introduction to Ultima
Ultima is a series of role-playing computer games created by Richard Garriot
in the early 80's that has survived until this day--a great feat actually,
considering the state of role-playing games in the modern gaming marketplace.
The Ultima series rivals such legendary game series as Final Fantasy, King's
Quest, and the multiple AD&D games in popularity, but is far, far better--of
that you can be sure. Part of what makes Ultima so
special are the Virtues (Honesty, Honor, Justice, Humility, Compassion,
Valor, Sacrifice, and Spirituality) to which the player dedicates themself
in playing as the Avatar, the paragon of the Virutes. Sound good? Want

V Book of Lore)
The saga begins with Ultima I and is brought to a close with the release
of Ultima IX "Ascension". Ultima Online (UO) has also been released
and you should be able to find it at any software retailer with a front
door. UO is a multi-player internet game. Well, actually, is more like
you will be creating a new life for yourself.
For more information on the latest games of the Ultima series check out
the Origin website. For more information
on Ultima Online check out Origin Worlds Online.
And for more information on Ultima in general, see the
Dragons Internet Chapter.
What is the Ultima Dragons Internet Chapter?
The Ultima Dragons-Internet Chapter (UDIC) is a very large group of Ultima
fans. We have surpassed the 10,000 mark and are steadily cruising onward
with the release of UO. The UDIC has it's own newsgroup: rec.games.computer.ultima.dragons
, a place on Weyrmount, and a website. First thing you should do is check
out the website and join the club--there's only one requirement; you have
to have played--not beaten-- at least one Ultima game. Even if you haven't
played an Ultima yet (what are you: crazy!?), then the UDIC site is a good
place to start finding out how. The UDIC
site and the club's members are the single greatest source in the world
for Ultima information. And don't be afraid to ask, because we love to
share the fun with others.
Why do you call yourself Kaleb Dragon?
I call myself Kaleb Dragon, because when you
join the Ultima Dragons you choose a Dragon name for yourself and it is
the name I am known by in the UDIC. It's great! You get to pick a really
cool name and do all sorts of neato Dragon stuff.
Why? I was hatched that way silly!
