     Ultima V has to be the most challenging game I have ever played, or will
probably play for quite some time.  My compliments go out to Richard Garret for
this excellent game.  There are a few dead giveaways in the game though.  For
example, I took notes of >EVERYTHING-2 (on a //gs) or --2 (on a //e).  This will spit out a long
number.  The last 4 digits are your current coordinates.  Note: 0,0 is to your
upper-left (as if you were in the 4th quadrant of a plane).
2) Use the Shards:
     Go into each of the castles (Empath Abbey, Serpents Hold, and Lyceum) and
find the flames of Truth/Courage/Love.  You then must position yourself
directly below it.  Next summon the Shadowlord who is opposite that flame
(Truth summons Falsehood, Love summons Hatred, and Courage summons Cowardice). 
To do this shout out their names (Falsehood: Faulinei, Hatred: Astaroth,
Cowardice: Nosfentor).  THe shadowlord should appear directly above the flame,
pass a turn so that it walks onto the flame, then use the correct shard.  It
will give you this little song and dance then say ...doom has been wrought! 
And the shadowlord is gone forever!
3) Retrieve Lord Brittish's articles:
     The scepter is in Stonegate (94,4A) or is the reverse? well it is either
(94,4A or 4A,94 I'm looking off of my maps and forgot which way is which). 
Well, you go in there and grab it.  NOTE: you MUST have the flying carpet by
now to get over the traps or you will instantly die upon touching the traps
(nice, huh?).  The Crown is on the top level of Blackthorns castle (behind the
magically locked door).  THe Amulet is in the underworld (lower left part of
the world approximately 70,D0 give or take a dozen) and finally the sandlewood
box is on the top level of Lord Brittish's castle (again behind magically
locked doors).  To get it you must play the following tune on the harpsichord
(678-987-8767653) and that will cause a section of the wall to disappear so you
can grab the box.
4) Level 8
     Well, this is quite obvious.  You need at least 6,400 experience to do
this...Takes quite some time.
5) Quests
     You must go to each shrine, it will give you a quest to go to the codex
(E9,E9) where it will tell you some pretty important info.  The last time you
go there (the eigth time) you will get some other info.  This is the
Beyond shades egress in the centre of the underworld there is a place of
darkness.  Beyond this darkness lies the gate to the core of the world.  When
thou art ready thou must call forth Veramocor to unlock the gate and venture
past ethereal words and stealers of souls.  That which the world hath, dost
awaits thy coming!
6) Once you have completed steps 1-5 (not necessarily in that order) Lord
Brittish will come to you while you sleep and say something like:  Thou art now
armed and thy must now complete thy destiny! You are then off to #7!
7) Enter the hole (80,80 in the underworld) and get down to 8th level. 
Somewhere on the 8th level is a room which looks like a room in a town.  You
must go stand before the mirror.  It will suck you in and your done!
Here is some other important info:
