Reagents

Needed for the spell are reagents. These chemical substances are needed as a link between the physical world of the spellcaster and the ethereal waves of magic. Each of them can be found in specific places, or bought from other mages, who earn money with the selling of reagents. Reagents have to be prepared in a special manner, before they can be used to cast any spells.

These reagents are in use since Ultima IV, where the magic system was altered significantly, and became more complex . Since then, the reagents have stayed the same, and appeared in every installment in Britannia.

The eight reagents of Britannia are:

Ultima IV[edit]

These then are the eight mystic reagents used in the weaving of enchantments. Some are readily available, while others are costly or must be hunted and harvested by the mage that intends to use them. Guard well your supply of these magical components, for without them there can be no magic. Use them wisely, as ye must use the forces that they unleash. Remember that Magic is to be used only for the cause of righteousness and for the greater good. Should you use the mystic arts for personal gain or vengeance, be prepared for the desertion of your powers.

Ultima V[edit]

Reagents are herbs needed for the preparation of magical mixtures. Most are sold in apothecaries; a few are hard to find and require special effort to obtain.

Nightshade can also still be found in the deepest Spiritwood (the patch is easy to recognise) while Mandrake Root is still found in the Bloody Plains. Both can be harvested around midnight.

Ultima VI[edit]

The preparation of a spell's reagents is performed at the moment of spellcasting, thus allowing the chemical reactions to reach their peak even as the appropriate mantra is uttered. Some reagents are relatively common herbs and mineral, available at any magic shop. Others must be sought after diligently, often requiring the mage to travel to distant and inhospitable places in search of an obscure fungus or root.

Ultima VII[edit]

SI-reagents.jpg
The second component required for spellcasting is the proper reagent. These chemical materials serve as a link between the physical world that the mage wishes to affect and the psychic energies of the ethereal waves that the mage is drawing upon to effect that change. Some reagents are relatively common herbs, others are rare and exotic items.

Ultima VII: Part Two[edit]

Here is the list of known reagents, the physical components necessary to transform matter into magical energy. While useless as individual parts, the various combinations, augmented by chanting and the proper use of a word of power, are quite effective for imbuing a mage with tremendous magical abilities.

For more information, see Serpent Isle Magic.

Ultima VIII[edit]

For reagents in Ultima VIII, see Pagan Magic.

It should be noted here, that most reagents can only be found. The only reagent vendor in Pagan is Mythran.

Ultima IX[edit]

During travel throughout Britannia, a disciplined mage must always search for reagents. Among common magic shops, you can find the base reagents. Rarer types are hoarded and require patience to find. A forgotten shop or forlorn peak may reveal a secret supply
