The Shrine of Justice

Located on a peninsula north of Yew and the Deep Forest lies the Shrine of Justice, dedicated to the virtue of the same name. The shrine can easily be reached, even by foot. Located at the beautiful coast of northern Britannia, the shrine is a place for rest and spiritual search.

Meditating at the shrine, the traveler has to chant the mantra "BEH", to find the ways of Justice.


Erected before the Quest of the Avatar, the shrine was easy to reach in Ultima IV. Meditating at the shrine gave insight into Justice, 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 Justice. 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 Justice to the Avatar, and was responsible to raise the stats of the party.

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


  • In the Bob White Plot of Ultima IX it would have been here, where the Avatar would have to stop civil war from breaking out in Britannia.
