I was digging through my Ultima VI (the best Ultima ever) and found a
contest mail in.

Basicly the contest winner had their charcter or likeness appear in
Ultima VII.

Does anyone know if someone actually won this? If so, what was the
wining charcter in Ultima VII?

Magnus, I was a "secondary" winner. Origin Systems notified me by phone
that I was going to be healer in a town of warriors. My photo was used
for the character "Hannar" (I think that is how it was spelled), whose
daughter was kidnapped at the start of Ultima VII, Serpent Isle. It was
changed from a smiling face to a more somber one, but still
recognizable. Since my hard drive crash over a year ago, I haven't had
the heart to start all over again, so I can't remember which town. I
don't know who the big winner was.

The town was Monitor. That's all I remember.

Andrew stopped manipulating the Magna of Illusion when he heard someone using
Magnus's account say:

Dunno. At times they use whoever they can get to fill populace space.
They don't always match up the face artwork to the names, however.

When I lived in Texas I used to hang out at an Amtgard group in Austin
called "Barad Duin" (basically a live-action fantasy group), whose
members included Dr. Cat and Manda Dee. They ended up using lots of
people from this group in Ultima VI, including Viscount Armahnd over
in Cove, I think it was Dargoth, a Healer on Verity Isle (who said
'that looks nothing like me'), and many others I cannot recall.

If anyone cares, the Barad Duin group eventually split, part of it out
of Amtgard into a group called 'The High Fantasy Society', the others
I think into an Amtgard duchy called 'Tori-Mar' in the Celestial Kingdom...
Don't know if Cat and Manda are in either of them...

I didn't win, but I heard that the character Ensorcio, the mage banished
from the city of the mages, was one of the winners. He was also one of
the
Prodigy dragons (I don't remember his name). Also, in an earlier thread,
someone posted that Rocco was also a winner.

Methinks that was Jim Hammons, Umbrae Dragon. :)

This is so much fun! I feel much more like starting the game again, now
that I have people to share it with! I look forward to seeing you again
in Ultima 7.5! I am new to the ultima-dragons newsgroup, and it is
wonderful to learn about other Ultima enthusiasts like me! I thought I
was alone!

Best wishes to all,

Heather

That was me. Good ole Ensorcio. I'm the drunken sod behind the Blue
Boar Inn just outside of Monitor.

Several people won it, they appeared in Serpent Isle. There were
postings around about this (from Melissa, etc.).

Then you should have put this on a different thread. The most appropriate one
would probably be "Best Ultima???".

ULTIMA 6 dosn't Suck. You were looking for the word ACE.
When I play ultima 7 Part 1 and 2 I might change my mind.
