That title pretty much says it. How does one kill LB in U7?
Oh, any other neat tricks would also be appreciated. Thanx.

In our many years of playing Ultima, we have discovered such a course of
action is impossible. You can shoot him with cannons, use a Skull of
Mondain on him, hit him with a fireball 99 times and just upset him. And
it's been done. A few of my friends have leveled Britain for fun, but Lord
British just gets upset despite their best efforts. If you find a way to
blow up the planet, you might just get him. Then again... However, should
you find a way to do it, let me know because I for one would like to knock
him for a loop.

I'll take this one, guys.

In U7, there are two ways that I know of to kill him. One, the easiest,
is to use the Blackrock sword on him, but in order to get the sword, you
must have the Forge of Virtue add-on. The other way to kill him, which
is much more fun, is as follows: Wait at his castle until 9 am.
AT this time he will be standing under the doorway to the courtyard. Click
on the sign above his head, and watch.


Hope this helps,

He can be killed in Ultima 1. Just kill all of his guards than hit him
several hundred times until he dies. Kind of pointless since he doesn't
fight back.

Lord British can be killed in Ultima III (at least in the C-64
version). Off to the west of the castle is a ship. Bring it
around the front of the castle next to the bridge. Next
get yourself in trouble (killing Chuckles is the easiest way).
As expected every guard will come after you first. You plug
them with the ship's cannon. Walk toward Lord British's throne
room slowly until you see LB coming after you. Make it back
to the ship and blast him.

You'll receive the message : LORD BRITISH DESTROYED.

Of course he'll be back in the castle when you re-enter.

Not so! It is possible to kill Lord British is Ultima III, IV, VI, and VII

[Most of this is second-hand information]

III: Attack him in the castle, run away. He
will follow you outside. Hop on a boat and cannon him (from a ship).
He dies in a few hits.

IV: Well, you can't really kill him, but if you attack him, and flee, he
disappears.

V: Don't rescue him! [Didn't thou bring the Sandlewood box? No.]

VI: Sleep him. Attack him with a Glass Sword

VII: At 9am, he will be standing in the courtyard of his castle. Click on the
sign above his head.

VII: Kill him with the Black Sword. [Requires Forge of Virtue add-on to get
the sword.]

In Lord British's castle, when he's standing below the gold plate
at the entrance to the throne room, click on the plate, and it should
drop on his head, killing him.
I've never actually done it, but I think that's what's supposed
to happen.
BTW, if you haven't gotten the key to the storeroom where the hoe
of destruction is, check out the fish by Lock Lake. Eventually, you'll
find a fish with a key in it. That's the one!
Happy adventuring!

Nail him with a glass sword when he's sleeping. The Armageddon
spell (from the wisps) would kill everything on the planet, too. Lord
British still shows up on the screen, but you can't talk to him.

Was this spell in U7? I remember casting some HORRIABLE spell in
Ultima 7 that just killed everything! :) It was so sad, everyone died even
the poor animals. And then I went Lord British and he said something like,
"Look what your have wrought apon the world!" Or something like that...Look
-ing back on it, it was kinda neat. ;)

Well, I tried a bunch of things, including firing canons at him,
giving myself about 50 glass swords (255 damage each) etc. I had to
make myself invis so he wouldn't beat the hell out of me and he just
wouldn't die. Even casting armagedon kills everyone in the world
but him. So I guess not...

Have you guys read his will? I thought it was pretty cool he knocked up
his cook (or something like that).

AFter you kill him (see previous posts on how to do it), it's in his
corpse. Happy Reading! :)

Check his body after you do the deed and you'll find a scroll.
Read it and ROTFL.

Ummm.... get him to stand at the entrance to the Throne Room in Castle
Britannia. See a golden plate that sez "The throne room of Lord British"?
Double click on it... Lord B hides a secret... a dark one, I'd say.

If you have the Forge of Virtue installed along with U7 you can kill Lord
British with the Black Rock Sword. Afterwards I suggest see Batlin as
he'll want to thank-you for a job well done if you get my meaning.
