Ultima Underworld I Part 7: I'm Off to See the Wizard

Ultima Underworld I: The Stygian Abyss

Part 7: I'm Off to See the Wizard

Alright, I have finally reached the lair of the wizard Tyball. It is time to kick his ass!

uwi0742.png

uwcardon.png
Who art thou? What >cough< what dost thou want?

uwmale3.png
Here, thou seemest hurt. Can I help thee?

uwcardon.png
Canst heal my wounds? Or >couth< hast thou any port?

uwmale3.png
Here is some port.

uwcardon.png
I thank thee greatly! Here is some advice for thee: Beware, for death is everywhere!

uwmale3.png
Then what art thou doing here?

uwcardon.png
I'm here to rescue my brother. He's in the prisons.

uwmale3.png
Where are these prisons?

uwcardon.png
Several cells lie to the north and west of here. He rots in one of those.

uwmale3.png
Who holds him prisoner?

uwcardon.png
He is in the clutches of the evil wizard who dominates this area. My brother came to explore this place months ago, and I have not heard from him since. I believe he has run afoul of this vile and violent mage.

uwmale3.png
Tell me of this wizard.

uwcardon.png
Rumor has it that he is the reason no one can cast spells on this level. Also, he uses monsters as henchmen to guard the way out of his lair. But I have figured out how to get past the guards.

uwmale3.png
How can one get past the guards?

uwcardon.png
A medallion of passage! I had one, but I lost it while in battle in the haunted mines to the southeast. Now I am too weak to recover it and just wish to return home. But perhaps thou ...

uwmale3.png
Say no more! I will seek out these mines now.

uwcardon.png
Is that so? Well, farewell, then. I will rejoin my comrades up above.

uwmale3.png
Farewell.

uwi0743.png


I now head north and get stopped by a checkpoint.

uwgreygoblin.png
Why you here? you got medallion, eh?

uwmale3.png
Medallion?! I need no stinking medallion!

uwi0745.png
uwi0746.png


I kill their asses. God, this feels good!

uwi0747.png


I pull this pull chain to get access to the passage to the north. After
navigating a series of winding hallways, I come upon this fellow.

uwi0748.png


uwillomo.png
What brings thee here?

uwmale3.png
I seek to free a kidnapped girl.

uwillomo.png
Well, watch thyself. There are nasty spiders all around. My friend was just killed by one, some distance to the north. He had a key that would allow one toenter a place of some importance. There one might find an itme that allows the owner to get through Tyball's maze.

uwmale3.png
What place does the key allow one to enter?

uwillomo.png
I said, 'twas a key that allowed one to enter a secret place. There lies an item that permits one to pass through Tyball's maze. Wert thou not listening? The entrance is in the chasm of fire.

uwmale3.png
What else canst thou tell me of this area?

uwillomo.png
A mysterious Orb drains the magic from every living creature on this level.

uwmale3.png
And that is why I cannot cast spells?

uwillomo.png
Indeed. The Orb drains thy power and transfers it -- somewhere -- where it is put to some foul purpose.

uwmale3.png
Dost thou know who is behind this?

uwillomo.png
I know only that one mage, Tyball by name, seems immune to its effect.

uwmale3.png
I know this Tyball. He is evil itself.

uwillomo.png
Indeed. However, if thou dost wish to break the Orb's grasp on this area, best thou prepare thyself with means other than spells.

uwmale3.png
How can such a thing be accomplished?

uwillomo.png
All I can think is, if thou canst discover whence came the Orb, and obtain it from its place of origin a fragment of its substance, thou mayst be able to destroy it with that.

uwmale3.png
This sounds like an excellent idea! But who knows whence it came?

uwillomo.png
I know not, but I think some friends of mine, who languish in prison, discovered its secret before they were captured by Tyball. If thou canst talk to them, perhaps they can help thee.

uwmale3.png
Very well. I thank thee for thy help.

uwillomo.png
Thou art welcome. Farewell.

uwi0749.png


I find the key he was talking about quickly. It opens a bunch of doors on this level.

I soon regret pissing off all the guards, so I reload and head south-east to get the medallion Cardon mentioned.

uwi0751.png


Fortunately, I have a ring of leaping, so this jump is not too bad.

uwi0752.png


Reapers are not nearly as annoying in this game as they are in the others.

uwi0753.png


I finally find the medallion in the abandoned mines. Now, I head back north and retrace my steps.

uwi0754.png
uwi0755.png


I continue in a northeastern direction until I run across another
checkpoint.

uwi0759.png


I enter this room.

uwi0757.png


What the shit?!

uwi0756.png


uwtroll.png
Ho ho, you just like big dumb rat in trap now. Ho ho.

uwmale3.png
Leave me be, everything is under control.

I have to bribe him with 20 gold pieces to allow me to continue on.

uwi0760.png


I now speak with some of Tyball's prisoners.

uwi0761.png
uwi0762.png

uwmorlock.png
Tyball! At last we meet! I have been warned of thee. After years of imprisonment, I will finally have my revenge!

uwmale3.png
Surely thou art mad! I am not Tyball.

uwmorlock.png
Not Tyball, eh? True, thou dost look rather scrawny, not like a powerful mage at all. Let me see, a test, a test .. Aha! Now answer me truly - what dost thou know of the secret doors in the tombs?

uwmale3.png
I know nothing of these secret doors.

uwmorlock.png
Secret doors? Who told thee of these secret doors? Did he tell thee of the chasm of ire they lead to, as well? It's becoming impossible to keep a secret around here these day.

uwmale3.png
The chasm of fire? Why would I want to go to a chasm of fire?

uwmorlock.png
Well, don't tell anyone, but I hid some things over there. But that's not important.

uwmale3.png
What things were these?

uwmorlock.png
I do not remember what they wer. That was years and years ago, or so it seems ...

uwmale3.png
Perhaps they will be useful in dealing with Tyball.

uwmorlock.png
Tyball! It is thee agin! Thou hast defeated and imprisoned me already. Now leave me in peace.

uwi0763.png
uwi0764.png


uwi0765.png


uwoutcast.png
Who art hou? Art thou here to take me back to the mines? But no, thou art not one of them ... Art thou here to rescue us, then?

uwmale3.png
Of course. But it may take a little time.

uwoutcast.png
Ah, then, a prisoner like the rest of us ...

uwmale3.png
Why art thou being held prisoner?

uwoutcast.png
Tyball keeps us here. To work the mines 'til we die ... If we're lucky that is. Less fortunate ones he takes away to work his evil magicks on.

uwmale3.png
What dost thou mean by "evil magicks"?

uwoutcast.png
There are caverns to the east filled with the dead. Victims of his dark arts gone awry. 'Tis said not even he dares venture there now. But the dead things wait, taking their vengeance on any living thing that enters.

uwmale3.png
Hmm. Thou didst mention being forced to work the mines. Why?

uwoutcast.png
Who know what we dig for? Mayhap materials he needs for his magic. But it's been days now since I've worked the mines, after what we found on the lower level ... And so few of us remain, left to rot in our cells.

uwmale3.png
The mines below this level?

uwoutcast.png
We dug through to the level below this and hit a natural cavern. The walls were veined with gold, but that's not what we were digging for, I'm sure. It was here the fell beasts attacked us and killed most of us prisoners. The remaining few of us have been left here for days, with no food or water. If thou couldst spare a morsel.

uwmale3.png
Certainly. Eat thy fill.

uwoutcast.png
Many thanks! Thou art a hero as far as I am concerned, just for sharing thy food!

uwmale3.png
Thou art most welcome. Excuse me now, I must be going.

uwi0766.png


uwi0767.png


uwmountainman.png
Who be ye?

uwmale3.png
I am Elzair. Who art thou?

uwmountainman.png
I be Kallistan. What do ye here, Elzair.

uwmale3.png
I seek to rid this area of a certain evil wizard.

uwmountainman.png
An' what proof have ye that ye're nae from the very wizard himself?

uwmale3.png
I am a confidant of Goldthirst's!

uwmountainman.png
Well, ye'll be knowin' the password t' his hoard, then, won't ye?

uwmale3.png
Indeed I do know it! 'Tis deco morono.

uwmountainman.png
Well, then, ye be a hero to th' Clan an' most welcome here! What can I do for ye?

uwmale3.png
I need thy help to find and defeat Tyball.

uwmountainman.png
Here. Take ye this splinter of crystal.

uwmale3.png
What is it?

uwmountainman.png
I found it three days ago while at my labors in the mines. At night it makes a faint, eerie keening. I've heard rumors of others who've found its like, and before long they're off searching for the tombs from which it came.

uwmale3.png
Why give it to me?

uwmountainman.png
I believe the tombs to be of my ancient ancestors, built here long before the colony of the Abyss was formed. I've dreamt of them since finding the crystal.

uwmale3.png
And what lies in the tombs?

uwmountainman.png
The way I figure it, the tombs have been defiled by an evil presence. This entity places the crystal where it'll be found, in order to draw the unwary souls to its lair. I ask ye - find these tombs and cleanse them of this evil, so that others do not fall into this trap.

uwmale3.png
And why should I do this?

uwmountainman.png
If ye can do this, I'ms sure the beast responsible will have collected a sizable hoard from his victims. ye may find the items useful in your quest against Tyball. But beware - disturb not the tombs themselves. Search for the entrance to the south of these prisons, where the pit trap spiders prowl. Carry the crystalwith ye in your search - it may prove to be helpful.

uwmale3.png
Thank thee, I will see if thy suppositions prove to be true.

uwi0768.png


These massive doors are not pickable. I have to find a key.

uwi0769.png


uwmale4.png
Greetings, friend. I am Dantes.

uwmale3.png
Well met, Danes. How can I help thee?

uwmale4.png
Well, I wouldn't say now to something to eat.

uwmale3.png
Certainly, have some of my food.

uwmale4.png
I thank thee. Perhaps I can help thee. Thou doth seem to be in good health. Thou shouldst be able to make it over the lava.

uwmale3.png
What lava?

uwmale4.png
I dug myself an escape route from my cell, using only be belt-buckle. Unfortunately, the cell looks out on a lava-filled cavern, and I cannot make the leap. I have a gamy leg, as thou can see.

uwmale3.png
Perhaps I can carry thee.

uwmale4.png
Nay, it is impossible! I am done for in any event. Get out there and save thyself.

uwmale3.png
Very well. I shall return for thee if I can.

uwi0770.png


The secret is in the northeastern corner of his cell.

uwi0771.png


I jump across this chasm, run along a short corridor, and drop down into the
lava below.

uwi0772.png


When I turn around, I find this map.

uwi0773.png


I now head to the northeast and find a stairway leading down to level eight.
I will continue my adventures ... right now.

uwi0778.png


This is a level eight monster?! It is not so tough.

uwi0779.png


Now we're talking!

uwi0781.png


I grab this orb rock stuff even if I don't know what the hell it does.

uwi0782.png


I find a new set of stairs leading back up.

uwi0784.png


I wander around until I find this note by this skull.

uwi0785.png


When I move the skull aside, I find this key. It will get me even more places.

uwi0786.png


Shit!

uwi0776.png


I now drop down to the lava canal and head south where I find a door guarded
by Fire Elementals.

uwi0787.png


Another day; another trip to level eight.

uwi0788.png
uwi0789.png


This time I find myself in Tyball's treasure room with an obnoxious imp and a pair of golems for company.

uwimp.png
Searching for something are we?
uwimp.png
Need to find a path?
uwimp.png
Slip-up and you'll be wormfood.
uwimp.png
Victim of Tyball's wrath.

uwmale3.png
Who art thou?

uwimp.png
A thief I am, a thief I'll be.
uwimp.png
With a very great prize.
uwimp.png
Have something you want,
uwimp.png
something you need.
uwimp.png
It'll open your eyes.

uwmale3.png
What would you have that I need?

uwimp.png
A crown it is, that's what we offer.
uwimp.png
The only thing for you in this room.
uwimp.png
The rest of the treasure is not
uwimp.png
yours to have.
uwimp.png
'to steal it will mean your doom.

uwmale3.png
What's so special about this crown?

uwimp.png
A maze it is, you'll want to get
uwimp.png
through.
uwimp.png
Though many a fool it did swallow.
uwimp.png
What I have will enhance your
uwimp.png
eyes.
uwimp.png
And show you the yellow to follow.

uwmale3.png
So how do I know which one to take?

uwimp.png
That's the question, is it not?
uwimp.png
And one you'll have to figure.
uwimp.png
It's one eye to help you is not
uwimp.png
bloodshot.
uwimp.png
And its size is smaller not bigger.

uwmale3.png
How is it that you have this crown?

uwimp.png
A thief I told you, is what I am.
uwimp.png
And a grand theft it was, I
uwimp.png
suppose.
uwimp.png
Heisted the crown, slick as can be.
uwimp.png
Right from under the evil one's
uwimp.png
nose.

uwmale3.png
So why not just give me this crown?

uwimp.png
Can't just give it to anyone.
uwimp.png
My clues you must heed.
uwimp.png
Prove yourself worthy.
uwimp.png
And control your greed.

uwmale3.png
What other clues canst thou give me?

uwimp.png
That's all I can tell you.
uwimp.png
It should be enough.
uwimp.png
Its really quite simple.
uwimp.png
If you're too dumb? - That's
uwimp.png
tough!

uwmale3.png
Thank thee.

uwimp.png
Heh heh heh .. We'll be watching.

uwi0790.png


Which one should I choose?

uwi0791.png


I think the white crown is clearly the obvious choice. I then jump along various ledges trying not to get killed by Fire Elementals.

uwi0793.png


Kickass! Now I can fly around to my heart's content. It is now time to find Tyball.

uwi0794.png


This is Tyball's maze. It is probably booby-trapped.

uwi0795.png


Which way should I go?

uwi0796.png


I put on the crown, and a path appears.

uwi0797.png


This screenshot roughly shows the path I took.

uwi0801.png


Here is the man himself!

uwtyball.png
Ah, it is Elzair! It is good to meet thee again. It is regrettable that our acquaintance must be such a short one.

uwmale3.png
What is thy fiendish plot?

uwtyball.png
Oh, thou dost wonder why I abducted poor Arial? Perhaps I should spare thee so that thou canst see my incantation. The sight of a demon entering the body of a human is not one to be missed.

uwmale3.png
Very well. If I must kill thee, I will.

uwtyball.png
Hm. I believe, dear Sir, that the question is not whether thou must kill me, but whether thou canst. And the answer, of course, is no.

Now comes the ass-whupping!

Well, the wizard is dead, but now there is a wholly new threat to Britannia I must thwart. How convenient! Tune in next time for the final chapter in this long journey.

Ultima Underworld I Part 8: Slash This!

Ultima Underworld I: Labyrinth of Worlds

Part 8: Slash This!

Last time I finally defeated the wizard Tyball who had kidnapped Ariela. However, now it seems there is an even greater threat to Britannia I must stop.

uwi0824.png


I find two keys on Tyball's body.

uwi0827.png


I use the skull key to free Ariela.

uwi0828.png
uwi0829.png
uwi0830.png
uwi0831.png


I have finally rescued the princess (or whatever her fucking title is)! All this fighting has worn me out, so I rest.

uwi0832.png
uwi0833.png
uwi0834.png
uwi0835.png
uwi0836.png
uwi0837.png
uwi0838.png
uwi0839.png
uwi0840.png


I head out the back entrance of Tyball's hideout.

uwi0841.png


I now loot Tyball's chambers.

uwi0842.png
uwi0843.png
uwi0844.png
uwi0845.png
uwi0846.png
uwi0847.png


Secret! I now head back to the previously unopenable cells in the northwest.

uwi0848.png


The skull key unlocks these three doors.

uwi0849.png


uwfyrgen.png
Ahh ... So thou must be the one who has vanquished Tyball. Good ... good ... I sensed his passing but feared I would die here, forgotten.

uwmale3.png
Who art thou?

uwfyrgen.png
I am Gurstang. I ventured down here searching for the Key of Truth.

uwmale3.png
Gurstang? I met thy colleague Illomo. He is worried about thee.

uwfyrgen.png
Illomo! So, Illomo told thee about me. Good, that means I can trust thee. I think I've discovered the whereabouts of the key. Tell Illomo 'Folanae.' He'll know where to look, and explain what to do. As for myself, I have other matters to attend to down here. Farewell.

uwmale3.png
Farewell.

uwi0851.png


uwmountainman.png
I shall tell thee nothing, thou minion of Tyball!

uwmale3.png
This is Tyball's blood upon my weapon, fool!

uwmountainman.png
Of course! I have not seen thee in the ranks of his lackeys. How may I help thee?

uwmale3.png
Well, tell me what it is that hast brought thee here.

uwmountainman.png
I was captured while on a quest for the Key of Courage.

uwmale3.png
I also seek the Key.

uwmountainman.png
Indeed? Then know this: I believe the entrance lies directly north of this very spot.

uwmale3.png
What else knowest thou of this entrance?

uwmountainman.png
A locked door blocks the way. But I still have the key hidden here in my cell. The key to the Key, as it were.

uwmale3.png
May I have this key?

uwmountainman.png
Yes, for I have been imprisoned too long and have neither heart nor strength left for this quest. It is thine.

uwmale3.png
I thank thee.

uwi0852.png


He gives me this valentine key.

uwi0853.png


uwmale4.png
Heh? What art thou doing here?

uwmale3.png
I am attempting to save the world from a powerful demon.

uwmale4.png
I know not how to help thee defeat this demon, but I would help thee any other way I can.

uwmale3.png
Hast thou any helpful information at all?

uwmale4.png
I don't know how useful it might be, but I can sketch thee a map of the immediate area.

uwmale3.png
Please! Every little bit helps.

uwmale4.png
Surely. Here, I'll just sketch it on the back of this old picture. The corridor ges like this, see, and there are all these little branches going off over here. We are here. Hmm, this map didn't come out very well. Oh well, take this picture anyways. It has an inscription that says "Tom."

uwmale3.png
Surely this will come in handy.

uwmale4.png
Thou art most welcome. May the powers of good be with thee.

uwmale3.png
And also with thee. Farewell.

uwi0854.png


I now head back to Tyball's lair and take the stairs there down to level eight, since they are the only ones that give access to most of the level.

I fly to the southwest to retrieve Garamon's bones.

uwi0855.png


It looks like there is more than one pile of bones around here.

uwi0857.png


This is the one I want.

uwi0858.png


Shit yeah! It is now time to get the Key of Courage.

uwi0859.png


I head back to the northwest corner of level seven and unlock the door with the key Smonden gave me.

uwi0860.png


There is no way to go but up.

uwi0861.png


Wow, and I thought my firewall was impressive!

uwi0862.png


I cast Sanct Flam just in case.

uwi0863.png


Up, up and away!

uwi0864.png


Arrrgggghhhhh! Finally I come across a large room and find my way through it.

uwi0865.png


I take the stairs up to level four. I find a conspicuous door, and what do I find inside?

uwi0866.png


uwwisp.png
A human it is. We have been watching you. A fine race you are, but somewhat unknowledgable. To divide all your intelligence amongst yourselves as you do - it does not seen correct. And your bodies must be so hard to maintain. Still, we are impressed that you do as well as you do.

uwmale3.png
Is it not equally difficultto consist only of globes of light?

uwwisp.png
Surely it is not so. Having no bodies to hamper us, we have no worries or cares. We can devote our whole being to our sole quest - the gathering of information.

uwmale3.png
And what information have you gathered?

uwwisp.png
Indeed, most of the things we know are on such a high plane that it is doubtful that a human would be able to understand them.

uwmale3.png
Such as what?

uwwisp.png
Ah, so you would know information so advanced it is more dangerous than you can imagine? Very well, here is a piece for you: the spel Vas Kal Corp will bring an end to life as you know it, although higher beings such as we will continue to exist in our own way. There. We are eager to see to what use you will put this information.

uwmale3.png
Thank thee. I will try it out.

uwwisp.png
Perhaps you are not as intelligent as we first thought.

uwi0867.png


Finally, no more stairs.

uwi0868.png


I arrive in a swamp with two towers jutting out. I head to the western tower.

uwi0869.png


There is no key, and an unpickable lock. What is a fellow to do?

uwi0870.png


BOOYAH!!

uwi0871.png


WTF is that?!

uwi0872.png


I get the key from inside the coffer.

uwi0873.png


I unlock the eastern tower door with the green key.

uwi0874.png


Sorry, golem, I don't have time to play with you. I'll just take this Key of Courage as a memento of our time together.

uwi0875.png


Do they really expect me to descend four levels?! Fuck that! I wonder what that Gate Travel spell (Vas Rel Por) I saw in the manual does?

uwi0876.png


It teleported me to a secret room on the second level with a moonstone. I can drop this moonstone anywhere I like and automatically warp to it with the Gate Travel spell. This would have been nice twenty hours ago! :rage:

uwi0877.png


While I am in the neighborhood I pay a visit to Goldthirst, the leader of the dwarves mountainmen.

uwgoldthirst.png
Ah, Elzair! It is a pleasure to see thee again. Thy name shall go down in the history of our clan!

uwmale3.png
I thank thee. Here is a gift for you.

uwi0878.png


uwgoldthirst.png
Zounds! A larger lump of gold I have never seen! Surely thou art deserving of this axe, an honored weapon that has been passed down from the time of my ancestors. Use it well, for there are few weapons better.

This axe is probably pretty sweet, but I hardly have any enemies left to use it on.

BTW, you might be wondering where to find the last artifact of Sir Cabirus: the Cup of Wonder. There is a really intricate quest of finding its precise location, but I just said fuck it and travelled to the place on level three where I fought the gazer and played Mardin's Song of Wonder on my flute, and the cup appeared.

uwi0880.png


I make my way down to the catacombs on the fifth level and locate Garamon's grave.

uwi0881.png


To lay him to rest, I have to use Garamon's bones on the tombstone.

uwgaramon.png
Thou hast done well. And now that my bones are at last at rest I can speak freely to thee. But my spirit cannot rest while yet this peril remains.

uwgaramon.png
We must open a gate, near where the foul creature my brother summoned lies bound. We must return it to the plane from whence it came.

uwmale3.png
How can we open such a gate?

uwgaramon.png
For this I will need a great deal of magical energy. This will be no gentle luring such as brought thee here, but an unimaginable vortex of interplanar energy.

uwmale3.png
Where can we find such powerful magic?

uwgaramon.png
Tyball's Orb would be perilous to use, even if it were intact. The power we tap must be carefully chosen .. As thou may have guessed, I am a little out of touch with thy world. I had hoped thou might provide an answer.

uwmale3.png
What be the qualifications for what thou needest?

It would be best if the source were absolutely pure -- my brother found the danger in tapping powers whose source thou knowest not -- and 'twould be best if Britannia herself were somehow involved.

uwmale3.png
How dost thou mean, "Britannia involved?"

uwgaramon.png
'Twould help to invoke one of the Elements. We work for Britannia's succor, and we must hope she would lend what aid she could.

uwmale3.png
The Elements?

uwgaramon.png
The classical four: earth, air, fire, and water.

uwgaramon.png
Yes, the source, which, if we are fortunate, may even wake Britannia to our aid, should be as pure as possible. Else we risk ending like my brother.

uwmale3.png
What about the talismans?

uwgaramon.png
Yes, of course! Those would do admirably. Now, we must find a means to unleash their stored Virtue. We must find some latent source of power that can be released by appling the energy of the Talismans.

uwmale3.png
What about the volcano?

uwgaramon.png
Yes, of course! If all eight Talismans be thrust into the volcano's maw, one at a time, I could ride the wave of such power to open the vortex. Ah, thou art wise as well as valorous! Wilt thou make such a sacrifice.

uwmale3.png
Aye, though it pains me sorely to lose such tools as these.

uwgaramon.png
Excellent! Make haste to the lowest place, where thou must cast all eight into the Abyss -- hold back not one, upon thy peril! When they are consumed by earth's own fire, I shall leash the torrent to gape wide my gate. With Fortune's smile, we shall send our foe screeching back to its Hell!

uwmale3.png
Where can I find a way into the volcano?

uwgaramon.png
The Chamber of Virtue is located on the lowest level of the Abyss. It lies at the very center of the volcano, where the energy fields of the Stygian are their strongest. 'Tis said that a special three-part key is needed to enter, but I know not the veracity of this legend.

uwmale3.png
I will make my way there.

uwgaramon.png
Hurry! There is little time to lose!
It is now time to get the Key of Love.

I return to Judy to give her the picture of Tom I found.

Sweet! Only one more left!

uwi0886.png


I then return to Illomo to tell him I found his friend Gurstang and give him the password: FOLANAE.

uwillomo.png
Hello, Elzair! Hast thou found my friend Gurstang?

uwmale3.png
Yes, I have discovered him.

uwillomo.png
I am glad to hear it! He must have told thee the code word he was searching for, then!

uwmale3.png
Indeed he did.

uwillomo.png
Yes? And what was it?

uwmale3.png
Folanae.

uwillomo.png
Hmm .. Folanae, thou sayest ... perhaps ... Yes, that must be it! The puzzle is becoming clearer!

uwmale3.png
What puzzle?

uwillomo.png
Gurstang was searchign for clues to the Key of Truth, a fabled object which has long been lost. Apparently, it is no longer in this world, so Gurstang and I looked for possible ways to bring it here from whatever world it is now in. The word that Gurstang found is an important clue.

uwmale3.png
What is its meaning?

uwillomo.png
We were of the opinion that praying at a shrine might bring it back. I would guess that the library might contain information regarding which shrine must be used. I suspect that any tome mentioning Gurstang's word, "Folanae," would hold the final clue to regaining the key.

uwmale3.png
I will seek out this information.

uwillomo.png
Good luck!

uwi0719.png


This is the book we neeed.

uwi0890.png


I chant FANLO, and the key appears. Now, let's check out my inventory.

uwi0891.png
uwi0892.png
uwi0893.png


It looks like I am ready to confront the Slasher of Veils.

uwi0895.png


I descend to level eight. The Chamber of Virtue is located in the center of the map.

uwi0896.png


Gee, I wonder what would fit inside?

uwi0897.png


Hmm. Could this work?

uwi0898.png


Naaaah!

uwi0899.png


Well, whadda ya know ... it worked!

uwi0900.png


This is it.

uwi0902.png


This is the Slasher of Veils, the demon Garamon mentioned that cannot be harmed with any weapon or spell. Well, he was half right.

Remember when the wisps gave me an amusing little toy? Let's try it out.

uwmale3.png
Vas Kal Corp!

uwi0903.png


Shit! Armageddon not only kills the Slasher of Veils (along with everything else) but also robs me of all spells and items. This time I act seriously and toss into the lava all eight talismans of Sir Cabirus: the Sword of Justice, the Taper of Sacrifice, the Shield of Valor, the Ring of Humility, the Wine of Compassion, the Book of Honesty, the Banner of Honor and the Cup of Wonder.

uwi0904.png


This makes everything go bat-shit.

uwi0905.png
uwi0906.png


I (and the Slasher of Veils) arrive in a trippy landscape. I must follow one of the colored paths, but which one?

uwi0304.png


I wonder if this crazy orb vision on level one will provide the answer?

uwi0907.png


I choose the green path.

uwi0908.png
uwi0910.png


Enough with the Alice in Wonderland shit!

uwi0911.png


After a very long path I finally find my ticket home. I run through the green moongate and see the ending cinematic.

Congrats. Hope you enjoy UU2 when you reach there. But for now... MOAR.

Ultima 7. Today I was remembering the casino in buccaneer's den. That's the way of making mini games...

Yeah, they'll be totally safe in Destard, the dungeon full of motherfucking dragons. Nice plan, Garamon. :retarded: Guess we know why we never see or hear from any of the characters in this game again...

You should see the House of Games in the SNES version. It's a ridiculous piece of shit infinitely better!

Well, a followed your let's play thread, but kind of keeping a distance... that game hurts...

About the casino, I remembered because of the way you bet: you just put the money on the table you bet yourself, there was no "talking-and-wait-the-computer-decide" kind of thing. You could try cheating. And you could see the ramdomness at work.

Think about baldur's gate: you talk to a guy and bet, he tells you to choose the number and then he says which number was the winning. But you never see really.

Finding the location of the cup isn't that involved. You need three pieces of incense (easy to find), burn them and smoke them to get a mantra. Then when you use the mantra it'll give you directions to where to get the cup. I don't remember how you know to play the flute there, but there was a hint somewhere.

I have no idea what to do here. I cannot talk to the ghost, but it is non-hostile and has a name.

Due to Underworld's limited engine, you cannot converse with anything in the game except critters. So how does the game let you talk to a door? By placing a critter nearby, and then have the critter start a conversation with you the first time you interact with the door.
In short, when you're talking to the "door", you're talking to Warren the spectre, a.ka. Warren Spector. It's an Easter Egg. Enjoy.

I see that you skipped out on several things in the lower levels, like the crypts on Level 7 and the only character you can talk to on Level 8.
