Ultima V: Lazarus was produced completely nonprofit by a group of avid Ultima fans who call themselves "Team Lazarus." Lazarus is available for users who own a copy of Gas-Powered Games' Dungeon Siege**, the engine they modded. Dungeon Siege is required because Lazarus is a Siegelet for it and we do not own the rights to the Dungeon Siege engine.
Although we have not been prohibited from creating this project, we have thus far been unable to acquire written permission for Lazarus due to the continually changing senior staff at OSI. We are proceeding with our efforts in good faith that--because of the non-profit and non-damaging nature of our project (in addition to our positive intentions toward Origin, EA, and Ultima in general)--EA will refrain from shutting us down. The sole purpose of our project has been to gain a working knowledge of game development through experience, not to turn a profit.
