Mars is the fourth planet of the Terran Solar System.
Ultima II Edit
Mars is on the space chart of the documentation, and its coordinates are 6,2,3.
Worlds of Ultima: Martian Dreams Edit
Mars plays an important role in the past seen in Martian Dreams, where the entire game takes place. The connection, if any, between Martian Dreams and Ultima II however, isn't made clear. It turns out that Mars had an extensive civilization based on plants. Mars has cities and canals in Martian Dreams, although the civilization is in ruins. The beasts running around at that time are found here: Martian Creatures.
What in fact happened was that, after massive soil poisoning, the original Martians had gone into dreamspace to preserve themselves. Eventually, robotic bodies could be created for the Martians, since their plantamal bodies won't grow. After a showdown with the evil Raxachk, who caused the soil pollution in the first place, they leave Mars, dust storms destroying all signs of civilization.
Mars is divided into four city-states (Inhabitants in the articles):
- Argyre - Raxachk's stronghold
- Elysium - City of body-stealers
- Hellas - The honest city
- Olympus - The Human stronghold
There are also these areas of interest:
- Abandoned City
- Landing Sites (1893 and 1895)
- Lens Towers
- North Pole Lab
- Power Plant
- Pumping Station
- Trading Post
As for something strange:
- In reality, although Mars has a thin atmosphere and a solid surface, no traces of advanced life have yet been found.
