Trivia

The CD also contains video clips - interviews with Lord British (Richard Garriott) about the past, present and future of the Ultima series, as well as a first look at "Ultima IX: Ascension".

There is a (rather disappointing) 16 page atlas containing printed copies of the cloth maps from the various games, and a registered copy of "Mo'Slo" which is needed to slow down some of the older games.
