Shroud of the Avatar
For those who don't know, the Ultima series is going to have a "spiritual successor" called "Shroud of the Avatar". They Stared a Kickstarter to, and we have the last 24 hours to go:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/port...-virtues-0

Quote:Shroud of the Avatar is the “spiritual successor” to Richard’s previous work in the FRP genre. Our primary objectives are to tell a story even more compelling than Ultimas IV-VII, create a virtual world more interactive than Ultima VII, develop deep rich multi-player capabilities beyond combat akin to Ultima Online, and offer a bold new approach to integrate them with “Selective Multi-Player”.

Shroud of the Avatar is infused with rich storylines, deeply integrated into game play, developed by Best Selling Author Tracy Hickman and RPG legend Richard Garriott.
Players will adventure in an interactive world where their choices have consequences, ethical paradoxes give them pause, and they play a vital part in weaving their own story into the immersive world and lore surrounding them.
Shroud of the Avatar is a Selective Multiplayer game, allowing players to choose how they want to play! Whether in Single-Player Offline mode or any of three online modes, the main quest line will provide greater than 40 hours of focused, story driven content.
Shroud of the Avatar can be played as an offline DRM free solo experience or online, where our servers will enable player to player transactions, group finding, patching, streaming of dynamic content, and exploit prevention.
Built using the Unity Game Engine, Shroud of the Avatar will support Win/Mac/Linux for official launch.
Players can specialize in a wide range of combat and non-combat skills, provided by a robust, classless skill system, and full-featured crafting and housing mechanics. Play the way you want to play, molding your character into the hero, anti-hero, or artisan you want to be!
Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtue is the first of a 5 game series of full-length, stand-alone games (each using the same game system), referred to as Episodes 1 through 5. Estimated availability of Episode 1, Forsaken Virtues, is October 2014, with Episodes 2 through 5 estimated for subsequent yearly releases.
Shroud of the Avatar is a “buy-to-play” game that, once purchased, does not require a subscription to play!

Spoony was out with it pretty soon and I saw it. I think he has gained hope again for Ultima and Lord British, according to him Ultima 9 is the worst game of all time. I fucking love that three and a half long review.

Well in LB's defence he had very little to do with Ultima IX (Fuck you EA, you killed Ultima, fuck you - Spoony, said retrospective), as EA kicked him off. Drinking Beverage
