Ultima 7 - The Black Gate
It has been two centuries since the Avatar last appeared in our good kingdom. Some have written
that at last it is possible to interpret the tales of the Avatar as they should be, with the
proper historical perspective. Some argue that as time moves on, the truth of what actually
occurred will fade even further away and that we have a responsibility to preserve the legends
as we now know them. However, most agree when it comes to a number of basic theories.
While there are those who maintain that the stories of the Avatar are only myths, practically all
credible scholars say that at least some elements of the Avatar’s tales are historical fact. In reality,
one need look no further than the Isle of the Avatar to see very persuasive evidence that the Avatar did
indeed exist - at least as a person if not as a spiritual being!
It is most likely that there has been more than one Avatar. All of the writings insist that the Avatar who
negotiated the peace between Britannia and the gargoyles is the one and same person who first appeared to
vanquish the sorcerer Mondain those many years ago. While saying it is most unlikely, historians do not firmly
deny the possibility of there having been only on Avatar. After all, our good sovereign monarch, wise Lord
British, has himself displayed an amazing longevity!
Whatever interpretation of history proves to be most accurate, it seems undeniable that the Avatar will not
return to our fair kingdom. By all indications the age of magic is coming to an end. With the decline on
reliability of mages, and with the kingdom turning away from the magical arts, it is doubtful that extreme
danger - that which would require an Avatar’s aid to defeat it - will ever return to Britannia. And
Upon us is the age of The Fellowship, in which one does not simply wait in anticipation for a heroic savior when
a crisis occurs. In this less spectacular but more practical day, we are left to solve our problems with our
own minds and our own will.
