The Underworld in Ultima V

As the name implies, the Underworld lies deep within Britannia, a system of huge caves and tunnels and the breeding ground for horrible monsters.


The Underworld was discovered in Ultima V by a band of adventurers who found an entrance in the Spiritwood. It was huge, and could be reached from every of the seven dungeons, since their grounds had collapsed after Ultima IV. Lord British was intrigued by the adventurer's tales and mounted an expedition into the Underworld where he was captured by the Shadowlords.

In Ultima VI, the Underworld had mostly collapsed, causing catastrophe in the Realm of the Gargoyles.
