Can someone explain to me what the crap this all is?
Not sure. But I like it and we need more of it.
Nice, got me one ordered. Thanks.
they need to hire maxim to do next years =)
Wow, there is some really terrible photoshopping going on in some of those pics.
Yup, I would like to see the proofs!
Nice music on the video.
How can I apply for the job of the person that rubs stuff on the models?
Definitely modeled on the KR paperdoll.. dangerously skinny, awkwardly posed, vacant expressions..
SAVE THE QUEEN, MY LOR.. AVATAR, FREE FOREVER
someone forgot to tell justice that her nip's showing
I did not find any real evidence of this and I looked reeeeeaaaaaalll hard.
the candle of love is white.... but with clevage like that im willing to overlook a lot.
Justice or Compassion... I can't decide which is my favorite virtue.
How do we get to buy it? Please share the url where we get to place the order online. Thanks.
Reading the website, it seems that the photographer is simply an old time Ultima fan. In the credits it even says that he got Richard Garriott himself as 'layout supervisor' for the pictures...
Many of the models in this photographer's portfolio are well known TV stars in Italy, so he must be a big name in the show business.
The website also says that all profits from the sales of the calendar will be donated to an association promoting accessible tourism for disabled people. At least the calendar is for a good cause rolleyes:
...which is in the true spirit of the virtues too.
So how do we support the good cause and buy a calendar? I'm using IE 6.0, I don't see any way to buy it on my browser.
truth or humility...toss up.
Courage! No question about it.
I don't care if the proceeds of this calendar goes to promote a nuclear holocaust, cure the words of aids, or to give everyone in the world aids... good or bad cause, i'm sold!
So how do we go about buying it?
This is very unrespectful for the woman, I am terrorised Gariott has such taste.
Both ugly and inapropriate at the same time... one of them has a dorsal fin ?
Yes Fink... I concur. No wonder why it wasn't officially announced.
Have you guys noticed that there is no fan followup for uo ? I dunno like this year its a cap, stuff you can buy, even free promotional gifts... You're paying every month, and there is no more follow up like when Gariott was there.
Cloth map... conventions... annual meetups...
Do you find it a bit awkward that Gariott sold off to EA and cut ALL his affiliation with his HUGE fanbase ; you think it was part of the contract ?
If I was happy with a work on ultima like this... enough to let my face be put there, then it'd be because I still have ultima rights, no ? Or at least something...
A how many years passion this man has put in all his video games ? Ultima 1 up to UO...
This calendar makes me think he might really be crossing dimentions like in the official trammel creation story, haha.
Fair enough. So how do we buy it?
Ricciardi Dragon is a UDIC member. This has nothing to do with orgin EA or mythic much less Richard Lord British Garriott. Hes an independent fan who's been working on this for a while. and it was recently published for charity. Pretty nice guy.
Justice is hawt
*backs off seeking fresh air*
I'm happy if he's a nice guy !
I'm enrico, lord british dragon on other games collecting forums ( and on ebay too... )
I was linked to this forum because I posted on facebook the news about my calendar MYSTIK inspired by the work of Richard " Lord British " Garriott.
I know him tks to a friend of mine and, being a pro photographer since 1982
I sended him a proposal about inspiring my charity calendar ( every year I produce one by myself since 2000 ) by ULTIMA.
I showed him my old ones and my site, he immediatly agreeded ( he's a very kind person ) and we started working together by mail.
No way to write ULTIMA on it, because of the right, but VIRTUES AND PRINCIPLES are out of EA rights lol, and he sended me his serpent design to put on the cover. I worked one month with my staff about it, on november 23
there will be a big charity party in Milan, Italy. If you are interested I will add more info.
And yes, I am a big fan and collector too of ULTIMA:
immodestly I have one of the largest collection all over the world, including one of the very first AKALABETH computerland version and the infamous ULTIMA ESCAPE FROM MOUNT DRASH.
I'll hope to open an online museum with that staff one day.
For now, tks for the positive comments I red
sorry for my english, I am italian
..... add one more thing, sorry !!!
I want to clear up, for creating no confusion from the beginning :
When me and Richard started talking about this project, we both highlighted as the first point that a calendar exactly inspired by ULTIMA could have created many BIG troubles for the rights, that's why we decided to write on the cover
FREELY INSPIRED BY THE WORK OF RICHARD LORD BRITISH GARRIOTT
The result is..... a calendar called MYSTIK - because of the importance of Mysticism in ULTIMA and VIRTUES philosophy - FREELY inspired by ULTIMA games !!!
Those pics are not " frames " of the big ULTIMA " movie " Richard did with years of great intuitions, just what they inspired to me.. and luckily they had the creator's appreciations
That's a mighty fine piece of work you've accomplished there, the MYSTIK calendar. May I ask :
1) How do we buy it from you online?
2) Do you play UO? If yes, which shard and character names? If no, consider joining?
See even he says it... VIRTUES ... *AND* MYSTICISM is essential to ULTIMA.
I try to tell them Enrico... I try to tell them...
Miss Infinity's legs seem to go on forever
They're too strange-looking to be enticing. Badly photoshopped.
I'm easily enticed
On another forum, someone posts in a thread about the MYSTIK Calendar :
"Is this an EA marketing ploy?"
to which someone else replied :
"Nah, it's too creative and tasteful to be EA."
The paladin side of me wouldn`t mind being stuck somewhere between Truth and Justice.
great.But it is really sad that they photoshop women that so obvious are beautiful without making them less beatiful with cheating.
being mostly a project who tries to help an italian association, a worldwide sale has not be planned, but if you click on the charity association logo they are trying to organize themselves for shipping the calendar.
No fixed amount requested, just a donation + shipping.
I'll not reply to all the positive comments ( tks you all )
I just answer that it's not badly photoshopped at all, you can't judge starting from a very low resolution pic I put online.
Don't confuse a creative make up on face and skin with a computer retouch
..... and INFINITY legs ( lol ok they look endless, it's their VIRTUE after all ) have just been shooted with a wide angle lens........
But everyone is free to have his opinion....
obviously I didn't shoot at a real dragon on VALOR
Glad to hear this! *goes back for another look*
Ok, if you actually own "Ultima: Escape from Mount Drash" then you're automatically cool in my book. That is incredibly obscure.
No, really, they should be sued for copyright infringement.
ACK!!! Do yourself a big favor and upgrade to 8.0 asap
Agreed... Justice narrowly wins imo
Do yourself a bigger favor and switch to something else . Firefox/Safari/Chrome, anything is better than IE .
Infinity FTW, guys. Infinity.
please do - there are also a few italian fans on this forum!
<wipes drool> uhhhhhhh, yup. <leer>
hi Sir Bolo
of course !!
On November 23 there will be a charity party at VISIONNAIRE
Piazza Cavour 3 Milano.
You can enter only with an invitation or sending an email to me clicking
CONTATTI on my site.
A special car prepared for offering maximum confort to people with handicap
will be donated to the association during that party.
hope you find it interesting
Come on... Courage wins because the Avatar gives me naughty thoughts! I can think of a multitude of uses for him... I want that calendar... GREAT WORK Mr. Ricciardi! Anyone know the shipping costs for hometown USA?
ah, it might just be lighting on the right then. granted i don't have a high definition monitor but it looked rather suspicious...
