The Blue Banner of Killorn is a battle standard of symbolic value which was lost during Killorn's campaign against Rhiannon. It appears in Ultima Underworld II.

Description[edit]

The heraldic symbol of Killorn Keep was a blue eagle, and a banner emblazoned with this emblem was carried by Lord Thibris's forces when they won the final victory of their campaign against Praecor Loth at Fyrna. In the midst of the battle, however, the banner of Killorn was captured, and the fractured remains of Loth's army brought it to rest in the tomb of their fallen king.[1]

Years later, Ogri, the steward of Killorn Keep, would have the opportunity to tell the wandering Avatar of the banner's loss, and could ask the hero to return it to its home should they ever find it in their travels. If the Avatar did, in fact, bring the blue banner back to Killorn, the delighted Ogri would tell the hero the secret of the great beasts which kept Killorn castle afloat, and would return the blue standard to it's place in the keep's great hall.[2]
