    Dearest Community,
    Somehow my recent agreement to allow Lord British to play a role in the upcoming fan game of Corven has produced (as often) some wild speculation! BTW - Lord British often visits other worlds in Board Games such as "The Visitor" another game made by a friend, where LB shows up as an "Unwanted Guest", and LB has also be a visitor in numerous computer games as well.
    Just as we often post words of encouragement and links to our community about other games being made by friends, family and fans, I have been in contact with Florian (the games creator) for years, as he has often posted me on their Ultima Homage creation. He asked if LB could play a role in the game, after discussing and refining what that role might be, I agreed to allow specific use of LB in Corven.
    This will NOT interfere in any way with LB in Shroud of the Avatar. It should not be seen as me moving to another company or product.
    However, I do believe they are working hard to make a very nice game, I look forward to seeing how it evolves!
    - Lord British

    You will have to forgive us dearest @Lord British for wanting to bogard you as our own. But I believe that most/some can intellectually understand that you, as we, visit other worlds regularly.

    I think the main backlash came from the change from Portalarium to CatNip, paired up with the lack of your presence that most have felt in the past year, and your contribution elsewhere that made many upset and thinking you have abandoned them.

    As for me, kudos for ensuring your legacy in as many locations as possible, eithout knowing about you, you shaped many of my childhood gaming experiences, so I am glad you are enjoying yourself!

    I think it's great that Lord British makes an appearance in other games, be it a cameo, easter egg or otherwise. Those can be a fun find for players. But in the case of SotA, I think many are looking forward to your future appearances in this game!

    What can you say about the Ep2+ story regarding LB, as many players would love to see your NPC in-game to interact with, and perhaps, just maybe, go adventuring with in a party in some special part of the campaign. Any update that you can provide on the Ep2 story / main campaign would be great.

    And how's Book 2 coming along?

    It's actually Out of Story that he showed up at all in Episode 1, since he's supposed to be somewhere else.

    That being said, it would be REALLY NICE if LB would run some events once Episode 2 hits, rather than just being the focus of our events. IE, hold court now and then. Lead a battle against evil. Something.

    That's great. Looking forward to seeing Lord British's appearance even more as a story-based character in SOTA.

    @Lord British - I tried a short stint in Legends of Aria and while doing some missions I came upon another player named Lord British. I wasn't sure if that was you or just someone who was an impersonator.

    Was that really you in there?

    Names aren’t unique in LoA— I had 3 accounts, toons named:

    Lord British
    &
    Darkstarr

    Made them duel each other, and then I brought in my 3rd account, a toon named Atos, and dropped a meteor on all 3 of them.

    Lol wish I recorded it.

    Well, it seems to have the stuck-at-98% load times of SOTA. So there's that.
