James Fudge at Crispy Gamer wrote to let me know about a new interview with Richard Garriott.
James Fudge wrote: The interview is a companion piece to an alternate play through of Ultima VII: The Black Gate. There's some interesting stuff in there including an argument during the development of Ultima IV that caused a family feud and put the game's future in jeopardy. Part two will be coming soon.
Chigowiz, who runs a D&D-based RPG blog, wrote about a little Ultima project he's up to. He's making a setting for Ultima 1-3 for Swords & Wizardry Whitebox, called The Siege Perilous.
