Lore

From Ultima lore:

Spells gleaned from the serpent ruins require a peculiar reagent, serpent scales. However, untreated snake scales are useless, and the ancient method of preparation has been lost. The only known supply of this ancient reagent is within the serpent ruins themselves.
- Beyond the Serpent Pillars (Ultima VII Part Two)


The poison in the mouth of this beast seeps into the flesh and corrupts the scales, giving them the magical ability to act as a destructor of bonds.
- The Chronicle of Pagan (Ultima VIII)
