Ultima IX - Killing Lord British with poisoned bread

Inspired by the retrospective article on the many ways of killing Lord British - alter ego of game designer Richard Garriott who is behind the entire Ultima series.


I love the description: "British's invulnerability can be circumnavigated by tricking him into eating poisoned bread you brought with you from your home dimension. The full Looney Tunes style death sequence has been immortalised online. We especially like how he chokes, falls down, gets up again and finally dies. Good going."

The video doesn't show it, but to accomplish this feat, when you're back in your home on Earth, you put rat poison in the breadmaker, then let the game transport you to this point, where you eat his prepared meal and place the bread in its place.

I know it's not really "British" but I'm putting in that channel anyway for the comedy value.
