[10:58:42] <Lightkey> pupnik: I thought you already have a Collection CD?

[17:05:28] <Lightkey> eh
[17:05:44] <Lightkey> I did not know The Complete Ultima VII was that old
[17:10:03] <Lightkey> I just realised I do not have that but Electronic Arts CD-ROM Classcis: The Complete Ultima VII that was released in 1994 as well :/
[17:11:21] <Lightkey> so the real one came in a box with all the feelies?

[17:25:11] <wjp> the Complete U7 came with maps and manuals, but no medallion
[17:25:36] <wjp> (in my case a cloth map of Britannia and a paper map of SI, but that apparently varies)
[17:28:02] <Lightkey> how much do you want? :p
[17:30:10] <wjp> :-)
[17:35:45] <-- deather has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[17:35:52] <Lightkey> take me sirius ffs :(
[17:37:30] <wjp> is "it's not for sale" a better answer, then? :-)
[17:40:51] <pupnik> u4 does have rather few conversation/hint points compared to u7
[17:43:12] <Lightkey> no it is not :(
[17:57:31] <-- Cahaan has left IRC ()

[21:29:17] <pupnik> Patience is not a virtue
