Welcome back to 1997, when Ultima: The Dark Core was first released. Obviously, the game no longer works (Hell, it barely worked in '97 it was so bleeding edge), and many of the links are outdated, but for fun, you might want to try out the introduction, read the documentation, peruse the goodies, or view the source of this page (it's classic HTML at its finest). There's a bit more info about The Dark Core on the Codex of Ultimate Wisdom, including a walkthrough.

Interactive fan fiction inspired by Lord British's Ultima Saga.
As told by Michael D. Hilborn
a.k.a. A New Breed of Dragon
