Back in 2018, we ran an interview with author Wes Locher about his book that was all about “Life, Love, and Adventure” in Ultima Online. Now, two years later, there’s a second volume that recounts even more player experiences titled Braving Britannia: Tales of Melancholy, Malice, and Peril in Ultima Online (Not an affiliate link).
“This second volume of the Braving Britannia series collects interviews with 30 more of the game’s players as they share treasured memories of slaughtering the weak, protecting the innocent, founding successful roleplaying communities, meeting future spouses, bonding with family and friends, decorating expansive castles, or just causing trouble for everyone around them.”
The book not only touts more player discussions but also talks with UO devs including Richard Garriott himself, and there’s also a point in the book where the author chronicles his return to the game after a 15 year-long hiatus. If you liked the first book, then it might be of interest for fans to perhaps check out the second.
