Richard Garriott, aka Lord British, was carrying a backpack full of fascinating things, when he stopped by Kotaku's offices last week to talk about his next game, Shroud of the Avatar.


What was in the backpack? His very first computer role-playing game—he's holding it in his hand right here; it's all in ASCII code on a spool of paper made for a Teletype machine. CIrca 1975.

Find out what other treasures he brought in our video interview with him (posted below).
