Ultima IX: AscensionDragon Edition

Stacks Image 7
Ultima IX: Ascension was a game changer for me when it was released in 1999. It was released in two editions; regular boxed edition, and the collector's boxed edition aka Dragon Edition. I had to get the collector's boxed edition as it had unique items in there.

3D version of the Ultima world was the best thing out there at the time. A little bit slow for the computing power at that time, nonetheless this version was as fun as the 2D Ultima games before.

The Dragon Edition was the real only edition I considered as it had a TON of physical extras:
  • Cloth Map
  • Tarot Cards
  • Certificate
  • Greetings Sheet signed by Lord British
  • Lithograph of the Avatar
  • Full Game CD, Soundtrack CD, and Ultima Collection CD
  • Embossed Play and Spellbook books
  • Ankh pendant

Ultima IX Journal - What I loved is the layout really got you into the game with the "traditional Ultima" style of Olde English text and pictures.

Same with the Spell book. It was a joy to open this when looking for spells. These extra physical books really got me more immersed into the storyline.

The Tarot Cards are beautiful and has a nice weight to them.
