Auction Spotlight – Shroud of the Avatar AND Ultima


Since I have a feeling we are going to be seeing a lot of stuff popping up for a while, I am going to keep it short!

Currently has a $30 big and is about $10 shipping. Claims to be the $200 reward level, but as it is sealed no way to verify without opening.

I spotlighted this one last time, but going to toss it up here again as it really is a nice auction!

What caught my eye on this one is it has the rune stones with it. Harder to find! I would verify count with the seller though. I’m missing one in my set (I knew that when purchased though), don’t want any surprises!

This one triggered a successful spot check, as its flat out slick! Would love to have one of these in my Cave!

Ultima Auction Spotlight – Ultima Ascension – posters autographed by Lord British / Richard Garriott


The sellers of these is an Ultima Dragon and they do a way better job of describing them, then I could!

Description
Three Ultima Ascension prints signed by Richard Garriott. These are the two-page ads that were run during Ultima Ascension’s release window.

Each poster is a full 16.5 x 10.5 inches. There is no magazine split down the middle.

All proceeds will be donated to Toronto SickKids Hospital (https://www.sickkids.ca/). This charity is not listed on eBay.com’s Make A Donation option, so I will be donating directly and providing proof to the winner.

Background
When Ultima Ascension was released, it performed… poorly. I helped test the first patch by running dozens of benchmarks on whatever Matrox card I had at the time.

Post-release, someone at Origin asked for my home address to send a small token of appreciation. A few weeks later these prints showed up, all signed in gold sharpie by Lord British / Richard Garriott.

I would love to add these to my collection, but my finances do not allow it at this time, so.. GO GET EM!!!

Akalabeth Auction Spotlight


Been looking for an Akalabeth and tired of never finding one? One just went up on eBay, and the seller is just letting the bids drive the price. May be a great opportunity to get in on one of these!

There are some concerns in the collector community this may be a fake. Not sure, just do your investigation before buying.

Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight


Once again, I must painfully pass onto my readers the availability of this fine piece of Helen Garriott artwork which I have been lamenting for, for a long time! I try to always remind myself to be happy I already own one of her pots!

With her recent passing, these will only become more sought after, harder to find, and costly. So if you ever wanted one, now may be a good time to grab this.

Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight


As someone who is both an Ultima collector and that follows the creators, it was eventual that at some point in my life I’d take a look at Helen Garriott’s work. For those not in the know, this would be Richard “Lord British” Garriott’s, mother.

I LOVE her ceramics! So much so that I spent years watching for them until I was able to get a piece for my own collection at a bargain.

I still watch for them as I would love to own many of them. This one is definitely outside of my budget but it absolutely beautiful!

Looking for something more substantial than just some great potential deal on maps?

This Ultima Two is currently at $125.55. The shipping is a bit nasty so keep that in account when bidding, or ask them to switch to something more reasonable for you. Lot of times Sellers just choose the wrong shipping on accident!
