LEAD THE SEARCH FOR LORD BRITISH
Lord British, benevolent sovereign of Britannia, has been lost on an expedition to explore the newly-discovered Underworld. The once-loyal Blackthorn has assumed the throne and imposed martial law to keep the peace. But he is soon seduced by power and becomes a tyrannical dictator, aided by shadowy lords of evil from another age. Only you, the Avatar of Legend, can save the True King and end Blackthorn’s reign of terror!
Enter the realm of Britannia: a world rich in history, adventure, and intrigue. Lord British, the benevolent ruler of Britannia, has been lost on an expedition to explore the vast reaches of a newly discovered underworld. Panic erupts in Britannia when the sole survivor of the expedition returns with dread tales of their fate.
- Watch your axes fly and your arrows soar, with detailed animated graphics.
- Weave spells to conjure daemons, call forth rushing winds of flame, or become invisible to the enemy.
- Employ more sophisticated combat strategies as your experience -- and the challenge -- increases.
- Over twice the graphic detail, animation and sound effects of earlier games, with murmuring fountains, ticking clocks and lighthouses that cut swaths of light through the night.
- Over 30 multi-level villages, towns, castles and keeps to explore, some with as many as five levels.
- A vast new underworld, equal in size to Britannia and populated by a host of shadowy creatures never known before.
- Townsfolk and villagers go about their daily activities of working, eating and sleeping according to their own individual schedules.
- The sun and twin moons rise and set while within the fortified towns and castles drawbridges raise and portcullises drop to protect the inhabitants at night.
- Carry on sophisticated, life-like conversations, buy, sell or trade with hundreds of people throughout the Realm.
To restore peace, the trusted but ambitious subject, Blackthorne seizes control of Britannia. His fanatical devotion to order ultimately transforms him into a self-righteous tyrant. Now, Britannia's destiny depends on your ability to discover the fate of Lord British and to unseat the merciless Blackthorn.

The acquisition of the Codex of Ultimate Wisdom created a karmic imbalance in the universe, resulting in the emergence of three sinister Shadowlords from the shards of the black jewel of Mondain. Their trickery and deceit allowed them to imprison Lord British in their underworld dungeon and compelled the leaders of Britannia to oppress the people. The once noble Lord Blackthorn became the human agent who fulfilled their evil intent. (from the Ultima Collection)
