The Shrine of Honesty

Located on Dagger Isle, north of Verity Isle, lies the Shrine of Honesty, dedicated to the virtue of the same name. The shrine can only be reached by ship. Despite being hard to reach, Dagger Isle is a peaceful place for the shrine, with only a number of crypts nearby.

Meditating at the shrine, the traveler has to chant the mantra "AHM", to find the ways of Honesty.


Erected before the Quest of the Avatar, the shrine was hard to reach in Ultima IV. Meditating at the shrine gave insight into Honesty, and elevated the Stranger to partial Avatarhood.

By the time of Ultima V the Avatar had to prevent the lackeys of Lord Blackthorn from destroying the shrine. The shrine sent the Avatar on a quest to the Codex of Ultimate Wisdom, to understand the true meaning of Honesty. Later, the shrine accepted donations for Karma.

By Ultima VI the Gargoyles had captured the shrine. The Avatar freed the shrine, who in return explained again the meaning of Honesty to the Avatar, and was responsible for raising the stats of the party.

In the time of Ultima VII, nothing was going on with the shrine.
