They've even got pictures, and the books certainly do tell you that they're sadistic fish fuckers who will pump 1.21 gigawatts right up your ass
. I don't even have an excuse here. I still can't believe it. I have no
memory of this, and I've read
the instruction books! I've played Ultimas IV
four times each, and not once do I remember fighting lightning-breathing seahorses. And you'd think I would, right? You'd think I would remember reading stuff like this: "These magical creatures appear fair and are not evil, but if offended they make devastating enemies."
And then in Ultima V
the writer's just like, "Y'know what? Fuck seahorses. 'Not evil', my ass!"
And yeah, in the Ultima wiki
it says seahorses in Runes of Virtue
have no interesting in fighting you — but by God, they will fucking finish
