| i. Introduction                                                              |
+==============================================================================+

  Eighteen Months have passed since the destruction of the Black Gate and the
  dismantling of the Fellowship.  A recently discovered scroll reveals that the
  Guardian isn't through with Britannia yet, he plans to destroy it from the
  Serpent Isle.  To prevent the destruction of the land that bears his name, 
  Lord British sends the trusted Avatar through the Serpent Pillars to the land 
  of The Serpent's Isle.

  Ultima 7 Part Two: The Serpents Isle (U7:SI) was built on almost the exact 
  same engine as The Black Gate, and therefore there are few differences in how 
  to play the game.  There are a few differences however.

  New in U7:SI:
    Paper Doll Inventory - you put on an armor, it will show it on you
    Vaguely Non-Linear gameplay

  Changed in U7:SI:
    More keyboard commands - very useful, they are outlined in "F. Keyboard
                             Commands" in the Appendix
    Cannot talk to people in different rooms - you could in U7, but not now
    Companions don't care if you steal
    Three new types of Money - Monetari, Filari, and Guilders
    Less companions to join party
    Less towns to explore
    More dungeons to explore
    Different Races of Avatar - you no longer have to be just white!

  You're probably wondering, "What is Serpent Isle, and how does it relate to 
  the rest of the Ultima Series?"  Well I'm glad you asked.  Serpent Isle, or 
  New Sosaria was founded by dissidents who didn't like Lord British's rule, 
  this would have happened after Ultima 3, and before Ultima 4.  However this 
  land has even more history than that spanning all the way back to Ultima 1!  
  In Ultima 1 the land that was to become Serpent Isle was called the "Land of 
  Danger and Despair".  The "Land of Danger and Despair" featured a castle for 
  Shamino, which we visit in U7:SI; Gorlab Village, which becomes very important 
  in the game; and a couple of dungeons called Skullcrusher and Spinebreaker, 
  both of which make appearances in SI.  Know also that the names of the 3 
  cities comes directly from Ultima 3, Fawn - Fawn, Moon - Moonshade, 
  Montor - Monitor.

  SI Chronology: (Spoilers!)

    Lands of Danger and Despair - Ultima 1
    Gorlab disappears, becomes a swamp
    Ophidians settle here
    Exodus steals the Great Earth Serpent starting the War of Imbalance 
      - Ultima 3
    Balance Hierophant killed
    War of Imbalance ends with the death of the Chaos Serpent
    Ophidians die out
    Settlers arrive from Old Sosaria - between Ultima 3 and 4
    Lord Blackthorn finds his way to Monk Isle - Ultima 5
    You arrive to set things straight - Ultima 7, the Serpent Isle

  Also U7:SI, unlike the Black Gate, has no discernable sub-plots or sidequests.
  This means that everything in the game relates to the Main Plot in some 
  fashion.  I really missed all the Subplots, I thought that those were what 
  made U7 such a well made game.  However, the main plot in U7:SI is much larger 
  with many more layers.

  There are Nine Circles of Magic (no more linear spells!).  You can cast your
  level, i.e. a level 3 avatar can cast circle 3.  Also the circle number is how
  much mana a spell will cost.

The Mages:
==========
  Name:           Abrev         Where:
  -----           -----         ------
  Ensorcio          E           Sleeping Bull Inn
  Melino            M           Moonshade
  Torrissio         T           Moonshade
  Columna           C           Moonshade
  Gustacio*         G           Moonshade
  Mortegro**       MR           Moonshade/Tolerance
  Elissa            S           Silver Seed

  * - only after you get out of the Mountains of Freedom, offers spells for free
  ** - disappears after you get out of Mountains of Freedom, appears at
       the Temple of Tolerance

  Note: I also had some trouble getting Melino to sell me spells.  At first he
        wouldn't sell me spells, then only after I got out of Freedom would he
        sell to me.  (I don't think that's supposed to happen)  Also don't 
        mention the stalkings to him or he WILL NEVER TALK TO YOU AGAIN!

Spells: * -- indicates that you start with the spell (when you get the new spell

At max you can have a party of 6, yourself included.  Any more than that has the
risk of crashing the game. (the only way to get more than 6 is to cheat)

At each level that you gain you also get 3 "Training Points" which can be used
to get new stats on a 1:1 trade.  That is you use 1 Training Point to get 1
unit of any stat.

How to Play the Game:

  Serpent Isle's gameplay engine is based completely on the Ultima 7 engine, 
  therefore if you know how to play that game, you mostly know this one.  To 
  walk, move the arrow in the direction that you wish to travel, and hold down 
  the right mouse button. (or double right click your destination)  To use 
  something, or to open your inventory, double click the object.  To open your 
  companions inventory open yours, then open theirs.  If you just double click 
  them you will talk to them in
