There's no need to hate just because he's rich. If you're going to hate at least bag on U8 or U9. Those were crap.


RG is a nice guy, but that has little to do with funding his endeavors. I don't know that anyone is hating, I think it's legitimate question to ask "You can easily afford to publish this yourself. Why do you need Kickstarter money?"

I guess it's just annoying because the question is answered at the bottom of the Kickstarter.

RG put his money in to make the demo.

From there it can be presumed that a Kickstarter is a good way for him to gauge interest. If there aren't enough Ultima fans left to collectively put a million into finishing up his game then he shouldn't put more of his money into it either. It seems kosher to me.

But I've been playing Ultima since U3 so I'm an easy sell.

Enough about that.

Since this is "Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues" and Lord British is going to be a character in it, I wonder what his set up is going to be?

The map sort of looks like Sosaria but the title indicates that whatever land this is had a past with virtues that are now gone. Is the Shroud of the Avatar a religious token like the Shroud of Turin? Was there an Avatar before, but now he's dead? How did LB get there?

I'm more interesting in nerding about that than anything to be honest.
