Not trying to score extra points, but I always like it when the developers 
make it into the fictional history.  It's just a personal preference.  I was 
thoroughly entertained that Lord British was a character in the ULtima 
series, and there was always a jester-looking guy somewhere named Richard 
Garriott.  :)

I won't comment on the alien race aspect because I like it, but I'd really 
like to hear from other people what they think of it.  naturally I can't 
write the description of the Kandelians until this small part is settled.  :)

NO problem to fix.  I actually looked at a couple of missions and missed it.

No problem, really.  Since Nexus got split off from the main branch of man, I 
can just move the founding of Allantha to that year and edit what is now the 
foundation of Allantha to be a rebuilding of that great city.  Has more 
romanticism in it that way, I think.  :)
