Richard Garriott cuts off (some of) his rat tail to raise money for Shroud of the Avatar


Richard “Lord British” Garriott is well-known for several things: his creation of the Ultima series, his lavish geeky parties, his trip to space, and of course, his ever-present rat tail. This week that rat tail has lost a little of its majestic length as Garriott cut off a fifth of it to promote Shroud of the Avatar’s winter telethon.

Yesterday’s all-day telethon raised an additional $20,600 for the game, which had already passed $8M in crowdfunding. Fans who contributed at least $5 to the telethon will receive a few in-game gifts, including a snow emote, a cloak, and an ice nightmare mount. The devs did their part with deep dives into various game topics while taking shots for every $2,000 raised. No word yet as to how many of the team suffered from alcohol poisoning.
