Garlic

There are few kitchens in all of Britannia that are not supplied with at least a few cloves of this spice, which is infamous for the odor it creates. Garlic cloves are washed and ground into a paste, providing significant protection from harmful magic.

Due to its multitude of uses, garlic remains common and easy to obtain.

Garlic Character
arlic - Even the most common of nature's gifts to our people have magical properties as can be witnessed by the power of Garlic. This pungent bulb is found in every garden in the lands of Britannia, and no stew or roast would be complete without its sharp flavor. Its aromatic nature makes Garlic a powerful reagent in the casting of magical spells, and it is used in all spells of the warding variety - be they the warding off of common and magical sickness or the repelling of beings once dead.

- from The Book of Mystic Wisdom (Ultima IV)

Ubiquitous and strong-scented reagent, used effectively in warding off evil spirits.

- from The Book of Lore (Ultima V)

This common household spice is effective in warding off evil spirits and negating black magic. Preparations for use generally involve grinding the washed cloves of garlic between two flatirons until they are reduced to a pungent paste.

- from Compendium (Ultima VI)

Certainly this is the most commonly available of all magical reagents. There are few kitchens in all of Britannia that are not supplied with at least a few cloves of this spice. Garlic cloves are washed and ground into a paste, providing significant protection from harmful magic.

- from The Book of Fellowship (Ultima VII)

Though the grated seasoning is found in any well-maintained kitchen, the reagent is ground to a fine, odorous paste. Garlic is the reagent that permits the casting of protective enchantments. The horticulturists in Fawn have begun to sell their garlic in reagent form for a fair price.

- from Beyond the Serpent Pillars (Ultima VII Part Two)

For eons, common garlic has warded off creatures of undead enchantment, though some have developed resistances over time. In magical application, garlic has powers of protection that invest themselves in the binding of these spells. Yet the usage of garlic can make one weep like a child. Against this power, there is scant protection.

- from Spellbook (Ultima IX)
