Records of the High Court of Yew

Hook -- Hook is known to be an extremely dangerous killer, a pirate who left his own band of scalliwags to become a freelance assassin for whomever might meet his price. It is believed that he is linked to at least fourteen murders in Britannia. All of the victims had been mutilated with a sharp object believed to be the handiwork of a hook-hand. It is not known where Hook resides, but many believe he has a secret hideout on Buccaneer's Den. His most recent sighting confirmed that he is travelling with a warrior gargoyle named Forskis.

Kellin... is wanted in several townships for thievery. He uses many aliases, including Tervis, Kreg, and Hodge. He was last seen near the forest of Yew and is believed to have gone into hiding...

Sullivan... is wanted in several townships for fraud, thievery, and other petty crimes. He is known to be a member of The Fellowship, though The Fellowship has denied any knowledge of such a member. In many reports of the man's crimes, victims have stated that he claimed to be the Avatar.

Ultima VII: The Black Gate + Forge of Virtue

The Orb of the Moons glows, and the Avatar finds that a red moongate has appeared behind the house. The Avatar thus returns to Britannia through the moongate, and arrives in Trinsic, where he[7] meets Iolo. Iolo tells him that two centuries have passed since he left. The whole town is shocked due to a ritualistic murder that occurred the preceding night - the body of the blacksmith Christopher was found in the stable. Finnigan, Mayor of Trinsic, asks the Avatar to investigate the incident.

In Trinsic, the Avatar gets to meet several members of a new religious organization called the Fellowship. Eventually, in Britain, he meets Batlin, one of the founders of the Fellowship. He also meets Lord British, who urges the Avatar to join the Fellowship, which, according to him, has done a lot of good things. It also turns out most of the mages of the realm have gone completely insane without any good explanation, and their magic doesn't work as it should.

Forge of Virtue was an expansion pack that adds a quest to Ultima VII in which the Avatar must pass a series of tests to revalidate himself in the three principles of Truth, Love, and Courage, and destroy the last remnants of Exodus.

With the expansion, an earthquake takes place at the beginning of the game. After speaking to Lord British about the tremors, the player will be given free use of a ship called The Golden Ankh, and can visit the Isle of Fire to begin the expansion subquests. The Isle of Fire was previously the site of Castle Exodus in Ultima III, and reappears only during this game.
