Lord British sought a new era of peace and harmony for the lands of Britannia. Evil needed to be vanquished, not only in its physical manifestations, but also in the hearts and minds of all people in the realm. An Avatar, a shining example of virtue and heroism, was needed to show the way. In order to attain the title of Avatar, you must first discover the Codex of Ultimate Wisdom from the bottom of the Great Stygian Abyss. As the Avatar, you embody the Eight Virtues: compassion, justice, honor, valor, humility, sacrifice, honesty and spirituality.
