Using a Peer Gem in Ultima V

Sometimes, even the best adventurer will become totally lost in a dungeon or in the wilderness, with no idea where to return to civilization. In such cases, peer gems come in extremely handy. Looking at such a gem reveals a map of the wider surroundings to the adventurer, thus making it easy to find the right way. However, each gem is only good for a single use, breaking afterwards.

Peer gems appeared first in Ultima III (before, there were other ways to look at the map; see Trivia below). They could only be bought at the illegal guild shops and were quite expensive. This didn't change in Ultima IV, although in Ultima V monsters could often be found carrying them. By Ultima VI, any tool shop sold them. After the time of the False Prophet, they vanished without a trace.

Trivia Edit

  • The gem given by Lord British at the beginning of Forge of Virtue in a way also works like a peer gem, only it showed one special place.
  • The spell "Peer" fulfilled the same function as these gems.
