Elven Race

The Elves have always been a part of Sosaria, tied inexplicably to the health of the world itself. The ancient tales and the bards that sing them are definite about that fact. Elven beauty is renowned, elven valor unsurpassed, and elven artistry dazzling in its brilliance. The songs tell us, so it must be true.

Gargoyle Race

Ever since they played a central role in Ultima VI, Gargoyles have been considered a unique and compelling part of Ultima lore. Presented as community-minded and strongly principled, the Gargoyle race is powerful in both magic and combat, and is renowned for their superior craftsmanship, particularly with unusual materials.

In Ultima Online, the Gargoyles’ traditional lore will expand the player experience with new skills and talents including combat proficiency in throwing weapons, magical knowledge of the school of Mysticism, and the unsurpassed skill of Artificers that have mastered the art of Imbuing and unraveling magical items.

Although not included as part of the Character Creation process, many Players have opted to “role play” the Orcish race.  By utilizing items from within the game, Players would “dress up” enough to portray an Orc. Creating a sort of language, acting as orcish as possible, and even immitating their “more dummer urks” that existed within Sosaria, this “non-player-race” became a very interesting twist to in the game.
