    OK, waaay back when, someone had posted a pic of the original Ultima line's player characters, including the Bobbits and Fuzzies. Does anyone have that pic that would be kind enough to post it again?

    Thanks!!

    Here's an interesting bit of trivia...

    The NES version of Ultima III: Exodus had all the races, plus had an interesting little quirk.

    There were effectively a certain number of character classes - but two names for each class. One class name was for males only, the other class name for females only. I don't remember if any other Ultima game was like that.

    Pretty sure the NES 3 was the only one that had pictures of the different races, too. Someone fire up an NES emulator and get a screenshot from the character creation screen of Ultima:Exodus

    *edit* Nope.. was wrong.. only shows the class, not the race. No idea where anyone got pics of the races from then.

    Well, I appreciate you trying! :)

    It's been so long since I've seen it, but I think it was a black and white, or maybe greyscale. I don't think it was a screenshot, but like something you might seen in a book or something. But, my memory is full of holes lately, so I could be completely wrong. :coco: Sorry, I don't mean to be contrary, I'm just not sure.

    Awesome!! Thanks!!! I think that is it. The little people are Bobbits, I believe. I also found this one, of a Fuzzy. I'd love to have one of these!

    Ah. I'm thinking this was artwork in the Ultima 3 game manual. You can probably find it somewhere on the web in PDF format. I wonder if you can pull a larger version of these images off that. Let me see if I have it.
