Selganor, from Ultima VI
Selganor, whose name meant "seeker of the crystal", served as guild master for the Artisan's Guild, and was himself a talented musician who offered lessons to the people of Minoc. He purchased his instruments from Julia, and was entrusted with the Rune of Sacrifice from Isabella, the mayor of Minoc.
When asked about the rune, he confirmed that it was in his possession, but regretfully informed the Avatar that he was unable to loan it to anyone outside the guild. As a solution, Selganor offered the Avatar membership in the guild, provided that the hero could pass two simple tests; craft a set of panpipes and commit the song "Stones" to memory. After the requirements had been met with some aid from Julia and Gwenno, Selganor welcomed the Avatar into the guild, relinquished the rune and wished the hero fortune in dealing with the gargoyle threat.
Runes of Virtue
Dismayed by the loss of the Minocian mayor Isabella, Selganor set forth to compose a sad melody that commemorated her absence. With Isabella's rescue from the Cavern of Selfishness, Selganor once again played a happy tune.
The Ultima 6 Project
In The Ultima 6 Project, Selganor further explained that under Blackthorn's rule, the tinkers of Britannia had been persecuted, and the small artisans had been taxed almost into oblivion. In his position as guildmaster, he helped to organize the guild's funds and act as representative in political and financial meetings. Asked about the balloonist, Selganor mentioned that Sutek was as mad as a hatter, a nod towards the giant white rabbits which inhabited the mage's island.
It was possible to return the rune and later borrow it again, if the need would arise to use the corresponding shrine.
- Selganor manages part of the game's copy protection by asking a question about magic from Compendium.
- In the screenshots displayed on the back cover of the IBM-PC and Amiga releases of Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny, the player's name is Selganor.
