Shroud of the Avatar

Welcome to my Shroud of the Avatar (SotA) page.  Here I will record my experiences, findings, and advice about my adventures in New Britannia.

My experience in the Ultima universe dates back to my childhood.  I have played Ultima 1 – 9, both Ultima Underworlds, and Akalabeth.  I played U1-8 on the Commodore 64.  I have replayed them all with the Ultima Collection on the PC.  I have played some of the fan-made games and patches, such as Exult.  I have played nearly everything in this genre with the exception of Ultima Online.

One day, curious what was new with Ultima, I did a search and found SotA, just two days before go live.  It had been in “early access” mode for quite some time.  So, sadly, I was not a backer during early development of this game.  But once in I was hooked!  SotA is deep, interactive game that allows you to adventure alone or team up with other players on grand adventures.  I have had much fun, and made many new friends, in New Britannia.

Give it a try.  You, too, may enjoy it as I have.  Episode 1 is free to play.  Episode 2 is in development, and Early Access costs $19 USD.  You can find the download here.  This is not a shameless plug, as I do not get a dime for a recruiting new players.  But I do enjoy adventuring with them!  :-)
