Additional info

In 2006, a fan-made computer role-playing game engine called Nazghul was released. Inspired by Ultima V, it is designed to create Ultima-style games.

Ultima V used a modified form of the Elder Futhark runic alphabet for some game text, adding some letters to make a complete one-to-one correspondence with the English alphabet (plus a few runes to represent some common two-letter combinations). While all the earlier Ultima games since Ultima II had used runes on accompanying material such as maps and manuals and Ultima IV had shown single runes on the screen in specific situations, Ultima V was the first part of the series to incorporate multi-letter runic texts into the actual on-screen display.

It was the first Ultima to implement a time-of-day system in which the sun rises and sets, and non-player characters follow daily routine schedules.
