A young Lord British shows the newly formed mountains to the Stranger, and gives them the name "Serpent's Spine" before they were mapped.
These mountains, named after the way their profile looks from the windows of Lord British's castle, separate the Deep Forest in the north from Britain and Castle Britannia in the south. They are next to impassable, and hold the entrance to the dungeon Despise in their middle part.
In Ultima IV, the White Stone was hidden in these mountains, while in Ultima V, the Glass Sword was found at exactly the same place.
|| To the north of the castle of Lord British lies the great mountain range, known as the Serpent's Spine. The peaks of this range are the highest in all Britannia. During the summer months, a small out-of-the-way pass allows knowledgeable travellers to save much time on their journeys. Beware of the one-eyed Cyclops and fierce, two-headed Ettins that inhabit this range.|
