The Cup of Wonder is one of the eight talismans of Sir Cabirus, representing the virtue of Spirituality. Carved from the heartwood of an ancient oak by a craftsman from Skara Brae, it is a strong symbol of virtue. It is found in Ultima Underworld.

Description[edit]

Unlike the other talismans, no one was able to discover the Cup of Wonder. Eventually it was the Avatar who discovered how to get the Cup by receiving three visions of the Cup in an incense-induced trance. The Avatar used the mantra gained in these visions to determine the location on a remote niche on the third level, and then played a special tune taught by the Exile Eyesnack on a flute, and the Cup appeared. It was later cast into the lava of the Great Stygian Abyss to banish the Slasher of Veils.
