Ultima IX Walkthrough - Introduction

The sun's rays beat on a farmer quietly pulling his cart in a silent field. The only sound comes from a number of birds passing by.

Suddenly, the sound of moving rock is heard in the distance and the farmer stops, concerned, looking around to see from where the sound came.

As the sound dies down and the farmer sees nothing, he continues on his way. But he only takes a few steps before the air trembles with the sound again. The farmer stops to look around again, more worried than before.

A bang makes him drop his cart, and from the field on his right bursts forth a column, and as the farmer watches in awe, the rise of the column eventually breaks to a halt. This halt causes a jerk on the column, and some rocks fall from its summit. The bigger rock topples over... and strikes the farmer.
