Ultima Auction Spotlight – Ultima II


What this auction is lacking, namely a box. Is made up for in that it has the map and is currently under $20.00.

Well? What are you waiting for? Tell them Caveloot.com sent you and to go shop there with the money they get from you!

Richard Garriott and Space – eBay Auction Spotlight


What really caught my attention about this item on eBay today, was not that it’s all that rare. I just haven’t seen one in quite a while.

I have seen them posted regularly in the past. Pricing if I remember right tends to run between $75.00 – and $125.00 so this one while not an amazing deal, IS reasonable and fair.

I would love to get one of these for my collection! I have a framed Nasa Postal Cover that has been signed both by Richard and his father, Owen Garriott. Richard signed it for me himself, and while it’s worth a relatively minor dollar amount, especially compared to other items in my collection, it is one of my most treasured possessions as well as his commemorative space travel coins.

Why? Simple, I am a major fan of the space programs as I believe our ability to travel, explore, and populate the stars, is dependent upon our long-term ability to survive as a species. I believe that could lead to us being one nation someday, as one planet, without borders.

Commercial Spacelight bringing the countries of the planet together to pioneer the stars due to common interest and passion. I also believe that Richard Garriott will be historically seen as one of the greatest visionaries of his century as a godfather and pioneer not only in his work in the space industry but also for his ability to inspire others.

So I personally love items that tie those things together, as they represent something I believe strongly in and have a passion for. Dollar value is irrelevant :).

Whatever your reason for collecting such item’s though, this one is a cool piece to own!

Ultima Auction Spotlight – U9 Map and Cards, U1, and a U3


This Ultima IX is far from being complete, given its only a map, the cards, and the books. On the flips side, $17.00 with free shipping for a map and cards is a great buy!

Hi bid on an Ultima III is currently only at $12.50. Makes me wish I had a little spare cash right now!

EXODUS ULTIMA III COMMODORE 64 NO DISC ALL OTHER PARTS


Even an Ultima I without coins is better then no Ultima I. An Ultima I without coins that has two days left and high bid is at $13.00? Sounds like one to pay attention to.

Thank You to Our Newest Patron – The Hearth of Britannia!

It’s always a party when I get a new Patron, but even more so when it is someone as prestigious as the Hearth of Britannia!

The Hearth of Brittania is an active and in my opinion at least, a major community leader in both the Ultima and the Shroud of the Avatar game communities.

Rustic Dragon of the Heath of Britannia himself has been a developer for Shroud of the Avatar, hired by making his mark in the community and impressing the developers with his work. A recipient of a Royal warrant and his famous “cabinet of Virtues” was included in the game, as was The Hearth of Britannia itself!

He also runs regular Google Hangouts as an open forum for discussion for the Ultima Dragons and guests. A place where one of the mottos are “You will always have a home with the Hearth.” As a member of the Ultima Dragons myself, it’s a home that means a lot to me and is very welcoming to new people.

Also on Patreon themselves, engaged in several projects including the development of a cookbook based on the foods from the Ultima Game series.

Even closer and dearer to my own heart, The Hearth of Britannia runs occasional player meets with LARP’ing aspects and is creating an LARP system!!

The Hearth of Britannia is creating an Ultima companion cookbook, LARP system, events, and more!

The Hearth of Britannia tries to give back to the community, and it’s joining as a Patron was a way the Hearth of Britannia is currently helping many of the community members by giving back when they got a bit more than needed for immediate goals.

I highly recommend checking them out if any of their projects sound like they may be of interest. You would be becoming part of a fantastic small community that is big on supporting those among it!

The Dice Are Coming, The Dice Are Coming!

Something new The Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond will be doing starting April of this year, is a monthly dice giveaway. At the beginning of each month (on the first or as quickly after as I am able), I will be doing a random drawing of all my $1.00+ Patrons and anyone that donated a $1.00 or more since the previous drawing.

One winner each month, chosen at random, will be shipped no charge (including international), a featured customized die.

To be eligible for April’s drawing you need to either be a Patron when I do the drawing or donate a $1.00 or more between now and then.

An image of the die being given away that month will be included with the winner’s announcement. Yes, you are understanding correctly! The die given away will be not only cool, but a surprise reveal.

These are some examples of, but not limited to, the type of dice you will see being given away.

You can win an unlimited number of times, but any time the winner drawn is the same as the previous month, an ADDITIONAL drawing will be done with a second die being given away. This ensures that someone new has a chance each month, but you have an opportunity to win even if you did the month prior.

These drawings will be held for an indefinite period. We do not anticipate stopping this anytime soon, but when we do decide to, will give a months notice.

Don’t want to take your chances with luck but want to get your hand on the dice we give away? FEAR NOT!

All of the dice in this post are available for sale with the exception of those shown in the featured image, at Caveloot.com. Those in the featured image will also be available for sale at Caveloot.com shortly, as they become available.

The support I get from my Patrons and Donators means a lot, and I am happy to find another way to show that!

Richard Garriott and/or Shroud of the Avatar In the News

Here are just a few things that I have seen here and there of late, I thought I would pass onto my interested readers.

The Science Times quotes Richard Garriott in one of their recent articles, about Elon Musk’s current plans in terms of timeline to send commercial tourists around the moon.

Elon Musk and his mission is insanity, said Richard Garriott

Read the article here:

MMO Examiner posted an article about release 39 and Shroud of the Avatar in general, over at this spot.

Markee Dragon also continues to play and video his time and tips for the game.

Shroud of The Avatar & Cuthulu Auction Spotlight


The first auction I noticed today was for a Shroud of the Avatar challenge coin. This coin was originally made by Frank Baxley and was given to Portalarium along with the designs and all that sort of stuff.

Since then they have remade multiple versions of it using different metal mixes and finishes. To the best of my knowledge, the artwork has never been changed, although it will for the reward coin version from pledge rewards.

Given out by dev’s just about anywhere you can encounter them, and if they decided to have some with them (not just Richard himself).

Someone has this one up on Ebay. I wouldn’t say the price is bad, but I think in time you may do better. On the other hand, if you’re trying to get all the metal versions of this, you might want to jump on it. Some are more limited than others.

Lord British Shroud of the Avatar Coin RARE


This auction caught my eye, as I want it for my collection and use! I have most of the D20 Cthulhu stuff as well as a lot of off-shoot stuff (none of which I have used yet *smirks*). One of the few items I have never picked up is the Game Master’s Pack. For a while, it was impossible to get for anything less than $150.00.

I have seen it purchasable for a $100.00 or so a few times now, but this is the first time I saw it listed this low! Fortunately for you, if it is of interest to you, if it doesn’t pay my bills or put food on my table I don’t buy it right now. So I am passing a good score onto you instead!
