Ultima 2 Complete

Sadly, I finished this game a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post, so you'll get a couple of these in short order.

As I'll probably remark too many times, Ultima ][ is my least favorite of these first three games, but it's a step in the direction of more world-building and narrative that will produce Ultima IV and of course, the rest of the series (including a couple of very richly themed offshoots in the Adventures line, and also a return to much more systemic stuff in Underworld).

So I got through it pretty quickly; the grinding is pretty tedious and it's not worth going into the dungeons, so we don't do too much of that. We'll do quite a bit more of that (or at least I will) for Ultima ]|[.

Episode 5: Game intro, manual, character creation, and some grinding

Episode 6: A bit of grinding, sadly, but also an explanation of how attributes are raised

Episode 7: Space flight, killing innocents, and taking down Minax

Thanks for joining me!
