The action begins immediately as you, the Avatar, find yourself in the clutches of horrifying gargoyles! These evil creatures have attacked Britannia and you alone can stop them.
But there's more to Ultima VI than just killing monsters. As your actions advance the story, you learn about the gargoyle race and soon realize that the invaders aren't mindlessly evil - they're fighting to save their race and to right an ancient wrong. In Ultima VI, things are not always as they appear..and evil is not so easily defined.
