Okay, took a few days, but finally got a start on Underworld 2. Mouselook patch helps with the controls, but still getting used to it.

Spent a long time running around the castle, grabbing stuff, eventually talking to Lord British, as well others, including Iolo, Dupre, too lazy to help this time. Took WAY too long to find the sewers. Would have been nice if Dupre had mentioned it was behind a secret door. Still working my way through the sewers, killing a lot, but not everything I have seen (and fortunately I talked to the goblins, before attacking something I should not have) made one trip back, learning the disappointment that Lord British is too useless to heal for the first time since U4. Wish I had more torches, I'm on my last one and need to sleep to heal.

I assume there are more than 8 levels in this game, since I'm already at 5.
Making good progress on Underworld 2. 6 of 8 worlds clear, only the tomb and void left, in the middle of the tomb (start of floor 3)

Magic system was an interesting change, unfortunately it took a very long time to improve the casting skill enough to get much use out of it, and mana still severely restricts how much can be used.

Its kind of annoying I was stuck with chain mail until very recently, the one plate I found earlier being in bad condition from the start and lacking the repair to fix it up. Trying to carry everything I want has been a real pain too. Interesting change again in just how little gold gets used.

Has been nice to get a little more look at the Guardian, even if a lot of it if it gets undone by the mess of how U9 turned out.

i believe in my heart of hearts that the proper successor to the Guardian in Ultimas up to UW2 is not the Guardian of later Ultima games but rather SHODAN of the System Shock games. same character or role as the Guardian of UW2, developed by the same team as i understand, just with a different name.

FYI, there is a magic way to repair items. If you're diligent enough about reading all notes and experimenting with runes you find written down, or grouped together in bags or boxes, you can discover some undocumented spells. The "repair" or "mending" spell is one of those spells.

Got distracted from the game a bit there, back to it now. Tomb is done, working may way through the void, three out four colors done. Purple is last. The section that looks like an Ultima 1 dungeon is kind of cute. Apparently a cute joke by the Guardian, due the gate to it in being the shape of his head.
And Ulnderworld 2, and thus the main Ultima story, is finally finished. Will probably do Underworld 1 next, while I’m still used to the system.
