Open your wallets, Ultima fans. Lord British needs cash.

The RPG pioneer and space tourist has a Kickstarter campaign to raise $1 million for an Ultima-style game called Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues and he’s well on his way to that goal.

Lord British, whose real name is Richard Garriott, says Shroud will be “a fantasy role-playing game that will focus more on player choices and discovery than on level grinding.”

Garriott developed the Ultima franchise from its inception in 1980 through hits such as Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar. The series evolved into Ultima Online, which was launched way back in 1997 and is still going.
