A few players of Ultima Odyssey by Djeryv have started modifying the world, adding new systems and making major modifications to the map. In order not to take over that resource, we've opted to fork the original odyssey and create Ultima Adventures. Ultima Adventures has everything included in the original Ultima Odyssey, plus more - much much more. Map changes, new content - system changes that seek to enhance the RP element of odyssey, but also make it more suited for multiplayer play with higher level content.

Original Ultima Odyssey Map:
Ultima Adventures Map:
New Ilshenar (underworld) Map, DOOM Gauntlet. Dynamic Good Vs evil system - load of new content.
Other Changes to the original Odyssey:
- three ways to play, Observer (easy mode, low penalty for death, little impact on the world), Avatar (influence the world but with real death penalty and real risk), and soulbound (hard roguelike/ironman with permadeath but legacy elements where your soul grows each incarnation)
- simulated pvp : encounter red pks with advanced AI and fight of flee, or join them
- a brand new land populated to cater to evil players, where npcs and shopkeeps are red and all the surrounding mobs are positive karma creatures - twisting the traditional good/evil model seen in most games.
- a new playdirector system with fully interactive plays being added for quests
- Revised map, with roads, new cities, new castles, places to build, homes to buy, champ spawns, too much to list
- Higher-end content and mobs, including new higher-end dungeons with new mechanics, we try to add late game content that innovates, not simply higher-stat mobs
- Dynamic good versus evil algorythm that encourages players to choose between good/evil playstyles
- New systems like dynamic karma/fame calculations for created mobs every mob is unique
- An animal broker that buys ANY tamable in the world, with some special rewards added as well, a great way for tamers to make some extra gold
- Animal levelling and animal breeding! Train your favorite pet type through multiple generations to increase its abilities to the max.
- Killable town guards! No insta-teleport kills. these blues heal using potions and bandages and act like a high end mob.. you're a thief? a necro? you can sneak around the guards or just brute force your way into a city now.
- customized skillgain system - reduce the amount of time you spend in a skill's low end zone (0-70) while making later gains much harder (80+)
- you can gain previously very tedious skills in a number of different ways: gain taming by training your pet, or gain provocation by killing mobs with a provoked creature. completely new approaches taken to skillgain for some of the most tedious skills
- fully customizable conversation townspersons with a populated database of frequently asked questions, acting as an in-game wiki
- full conversational vendors and npcs. as them who they are and where you are and what certain service are
- Did i mention champion spawns with completely new AI? You should try barracoon
- Custom Blue and Red Mobiles that act just like other players (will heal and res you) and hate it when you steal their loot, simulating a real populated server
- No item decay, no housing limit (this is meant to be a solo server - or server played with close friends so why limit?)
- Savings system offering interest for funds in the bank depending on how well the world is running (evil/good balance)
- systems put in place to encourage discovery over recall/gating everywhere
- full standalone lottery - visit lady luck in the tavern or type [lottery ingame
- Customized hitching posts that don't make your tames disappear! Park your mount at a post and he stays there even after server restart. show off your best/rarest pets
- all tames are unique, with different stats, skills and taming requirements. find a weak dragon to tame, or an incredibly strong chicken
- full customized PvM gauntlet system! With top scores and multiple monster waves.
- New AI, new mobs.... try it and see.
and all this on top of the content already available in the original Ultima odyssey.
note, you need to use the Saves folder included here in order to take advantage of all the changes.
I recommend you join up on the server to make sure you don't lose any progress and can benefit from all the new content.
