A remake of the original Ulimta 1 computer game by Richard Garriott but in Print & Play boardgame format. For  player/solitaire gaming.
The game will consist of all  map board continents with each map containing four quadrants printed on 11x17 sheets, which allows you to play on one board at a time or put them all together for one big gameboard.
You can play as one of four character types: THIEF, MAGE, FIGHTER, CLERIC who adventures across the lands of Sosaria, ie gameboards, to accomplish goals, gather gold, gather gems, weapons, armor, spells and scrolls, traveling aids, and equipment. Adventure into Dark Dungeons, Castles, and Towns for Supplies, Equipment and information. Speak with Kings to gather information about the location of all four gems, Fight wandering monsters and evil individuals, open chest to find riches, plus level up and increase your characters abilities and win the game by discovering secret information, finding lost treasures, and defeating the evil overlord "Big Boss" Mondain.
All the fun of the original Ultima 1 but with more challenges, more monsters, more riches, and more fame... plus in a Print & Play board game format.
I've taken some liberty with the game since a board game can't do everything a computer can do but should keep the original play as close to the PC game as possible.
For those of you who have played through the original PC game, you will find that this board game will be similar experience with you traveling, searching, and fighting your way across Sosaria. Just remember that you are now the computer and will be tracking all your stats and information.
I will also try to add as many random elements to the game so each time you play it will be the same Ultima 1 but with a little different experience.
A true to the original recreation of the PC game Ultima 1 but in a PRINT & PLAY board game format.
Hail, Noble One! Our land is in need of a stalwart hero, one who will brave perils horrific to consider. A plague has befallen the Realm, a scourge is upon the land! Our villages lie sacked, ruinous mounds of ashes where once trod peasants stout of heart and sound of mind, where once lay fields of grain and fruit, where kine and fowl grew fat upon the bounties of our fair Sosaria. All manner of wicked and vile creatures prey upon our people and ravage the land. 'Tis the doing of one so evil that the very earth trembles at the mention of his name.
Mondain the wizard hath wrought his malice well. Our nobles bicker amongst themselves, and each hath retired to the confines of his keep in hopes of watching the downfall of his rivals. Verily, the Evil One hath heaped indignity upon curse by releasing upon the Realm a host of creatures and beasts so bloodthirsty and wicked that our defenseless people fall as grain before the reaper's scythe. These denizens of the underworld hold sway over all that can be surveyed, save for the strongholds of the nobles besotted with their own ambition. Nowhere in our once peaceful country may a traveler find safe passage or lodging, save in the keeps of the self-proclaimed kings - - and they demand hard labors for their indulgences.
Only the young Lord British remains steadfast in the vision of a peaceful and united Sosaria. In his castle and his town the pure of heart will find an ally and replenishment for the needs of one who hath chosen to fight for the Realm. Aid us in ridding our land of the scourge that hath befallen us, O Noble One. We beseech thee, for without thine aid we shall surely perish before the onslaught of the maleficent necromancer. Slay the evil Mondain!
