The (Ultima)te Adventure
I was feeling nostalgic today, so I hopped in the Wayback machine, set the controls for 1981 and went back to playing Ultima I.
I found myself in the magical land of Sosaria...
That castle sure looked promising, so I went to see the King.
Sadly, the castle was a bit underwhelming. Maybe he was King of the Hobos? The King gave me a rather vague quest, and I headed to town to equip myself.
The town was a little better than the castle, but that wasn't saying much. I decided to head off into the wilderness in search of a different town.
Along the way, I saw a giant squid.
Though beset by adversaries, I reached another town.
So I figured I would try searching dungeons for treasure.
It was very dark.
There were skeletons...
...and Luchadores in dresses.
All in all it was a very enjoyable afternoon! :-)
