Video of the Day: Britannia Burns with Richard Garriott

Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

Lord British returns for more historical discussion.

This week we begin with a double dose of our Video of the Day with Parts 2 & 3 of Richard Garriott’s interview with Noah “Spoony” Antwiler to fulfill one of the Kickstarter goals for Shroud of the Avatar. In the two videos, Garriott delves into past development, story, and lore of games in the Ultima series and the upcoming Shroud of the Avatar project.

One thing that will interest fans of the Ultima series is the discussion about some of the darker lore and stories behind the Ultima saga, and what Garriott has planned to push the boundaries once again in Shroud of the Avatar. There’s no need for me to go into spoiler details about the hideous horrors and the death of small children. Instead, you can just watch them below.

Catch Part 1 if you missed it here. There may be more from these two in the future. But in the meantime, you can visit the Shroud of the Avatar website to learn more about Garriott's latest project. Additionally, you can check out more of Noah Antwiler’s comical work on The Spoony Experiment website (just consider the site and most videos NSFW, mostly due to certain ads and language).

If you've got a video you'd love to see featured as our Video of the Day, drop me a link at martuk[AT] You can also tweet me @TTHTuk on Twitter.

We recently sat down with Richard Garriott and Tracy Hickman to discuss the way history is being handled in Shroud of the Avatar and how the thoughtfulness behind the meta-human species in Shroud is indicative of professional game development taken to the point where it becomes art.
