More fun with killing Lord British : http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=181917
The Ultima Online incident was a classic.
Bitch had it coming. Acting all high and mighty with his huge beard.
I think it was Ultima 5 or 6 where there was what I assume was some sort of in-joke where you could take anything in Castle British you wanted, but if you touched the fork at Lord British's setting at the dining table, he unleashed his fury upon you.
The ultima online incident is a thing of beauty. As a rule I believe all MMORPGs are gay and got garried to a may, but the public assasination of Richard Garriot's avatar, especially in the manner that it happened, was truly admirable.
The guy was a theif, rooting around in the backpacks of the characters around him, and finds some kind of fire spell. I dont know if just any mage could have done the same thing from his own spell list, or if by pickpocketing he somehow circumvented a "no weapons" policy surrounding the speech.
There was a command that made Lord British invulnerable, but a server reboot or something failed to turn it on.
I like how, unsatisfied with his first try, Lord British gets up and dies again -- but this time with a graceful balletic spin.
