    I thought this would be an interesting tidbit for those interested in the inspiration behind Ultima and the Ophidians. You can read the entire article here.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophites

    The Ophites were a Christian Gnostic Sect of the Ancient Levant also known as the Serpentinians. The Ophidians in Ultima were a group of humans who worshipped a Trinity of Three Serpents; Chaos, Order, and Balance.
