Ultima II: The Revenge of the Enchantress is the second role-playing game in the Ultima series.
Ultima II: The Revenge of the Enchantress is the second role-playing game in the Ultima series. Released in 1982, it is the only Ultima game published by Sierra On-Line. After this game, Richard Garriott decided to start his own company, Origin Systems.
Compared to Ultima I, the game is bigger but also faster, since it was developed in Assembly language (on the Apple II). Ultima II was also the first game to be officially ported to other platforms, including Commodore 64, Macintosh, and MS-DOS.

No Will, I am NOT thinking about The Legend of Blacksilver. That game wasn't released until '88, long after I'd gotten rid of my C64, & it was published by Epyx. I'm quite definitely talking about Ultima II: Revenge Of The Enchantress, which was released in '82, by Sierra On-Line.
Tell me, how many mountains have you climbed over? NONE!
That's because you haven't been able to buy climbing gear from the bartender.
Tell me, how many dungeons & towers have you explored? NONE!
That's because you haven't been able to buy any torches from the bartender.
Ect, Ect, Ect.....
Richard Garriott would piss his pants laughing to know that little trick he put in there to get software pirates to waste all their time thinking they had a working copy of Ultima II is still working great on 36 years later!
Will, I've been playing this game since it came out on the Commodore 64 back in the mid 80's. Hints are the least of the things the bartender does. You can get the bartender to give you all the hints you want, but you still can't buy vital equipment from him. Try buying equipment from the bartender. You can't. Have you been able to get over the mountains yet? I'll bet not! That's because you haven't bought climbing gear from the bartender. That's just one of several things you will need to buy from the bartender to complete the game.
