Ultima 5 [solve]

Submitted by : tanara

To solve U5, you must do the following:
Obtain all 3 shards from the underworld 
Use the shards to destroy the Shadowlords 
Retrieve the Scepter, Crown, Amulet, and Sandlewood Box 
Become 8th level 
Completed all of the Shrines Quests 
Be 'Ordained' by Brittish when you sleep 
Then enter the 'hole' to the center of the world, wind your way around
(up/down levels) and free Lord Brittish

1) Obtain all 3 shards:
These are found in 'obvious' places in the underworld. I remembered to
write down only two of the coordinates, sorry I can't tell you the Third.
(C0,50) and (B0,B8) are the only two I know. To obtain your coordinate hit
-2 (on a //gs) or --2 (on a //e). This will spit out a long
number. The last 4 digits are your current coordinates. Note: 0,0 is to your
upper-left (as if you were in the 4th quadrant of a plane).

2) Use the Shards:
Go into each of the castles (Empath Abbey, Serpents Hold, and Lyceum)
and find the flames of Truth/Courage/Love. You then must position yourself
directly below it. Next summon the Shadowlord who is opposite that flame
(Truth summons Falsehood, Love summons Hatred, and Courage summons Cowardice).
To do this shout out their names (Falsehood: Faulinei, Hatred: Astaroth,
Cowardice: Nosfentor). THe shadowlord should appear directly above the flame,
pass a turn so that it walks onto the flame, then use the correct shard. It
will give you this little song and dance then say ...doom has been wrought!
And the shadowlord is gone forever!

3) Retrieve Lord Brittish's articles:
The scepter is in Stonegate (94,4A) or is the reverse? well it is
either (94,4A or 4A,94 I'm looking off of my maps and forgot which way is
which). Well, you go in there and grab it. NOTE: you MUST have the flying
carpet by now to get over the traps or you will instantly die upon touching
the traps (nice, huh?). The Crown is on the top level of Blackthorns castle
(behind the magically locked door). THe Amulet is in the underworld (lower
left part of the world approximately 70,D0 give or take a dozen) and finally
the sandlewood box is on the top level of Lord Brittish's castle (again behind
magically locked doors). To get it you must play the following tune on the
harpsichord (678-987-8767653) and that will cause a section of the wall to
disappear so you can grab the box.

4) Level 8
Well, this is quite obvious. You need at least 6,400 experience to do
this...Takes quite some time.

5) Quests
You must go to each shrine, it will give you a quest to go to the
codex (E9,E9) where it will tell you some pretty important info. The last time
you go there (the eigth time) you will get some other info. This is the
translation: Beyond shades egress in the centre of the underworld there is a
place of darkness. Beyond this darkness lies the gate to the core of the
world. When thou art ready thou must call forth Veramocor to unlock the gate
and venture past ethereal words and stealers of souls. That which the world
hath, dost awaits thy coming!

6) Once you have completed steps 1-5 
(not necessarily in that order) Lord Brittish will come to you while
you sleep and say something like: Thou art now armed and thy must now complete
thy destiny! You are then off to #7!

7) Enter the hole 
(80,80 in the underworld) and get down to 8th level. Somewhere on the
8th level is a room which looks like a room in a town. You must go stand
before the mirror. It will suck you in and your done!

Here is some other important info:
Virture/Mantra/Word of Power chart:(probably the most important chart
there is)

Virtue Mantra   Word of Power  Dungeons
Honesty Ahm   Fallax     Deceit
Compassion    Mu          Vilis                 Despise
Valor         Ra           Inopia                Destard
Justice       Beh         Malum                 Wrong
Sacrifice     Cah         Avidus              (unknown)
Honor         Summ      Infama                Shame
Spirituality  Om          Ignavus             (unknown)
Humility      Lumm      Veramocor        (unknown)

Mystical weapons/armor are at (e9,e9) in the underworld
The runes can be found in any ordinary encylopedia (to help you translate the
encrypted text).
