    Famous game developer Richard Garriott, who created the iconic Ultima series and also went to space, is now selling his own blood on eBay.
    Garriott had his blood drawn during a livestream yesterday to promote his new RPG, Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues. If you're up for it, skip to around 19 minutes to see it happen (via Kotaku UK).

    Garriott then handed over his blood to artist Steve Burdniak, who built six reliquaries containing his blood, along with executive producer Starr "Darkstarr" Long's. These are now on sale on eBay for $5,000 each.
    "The Lord British Blood Reliquary is a beautiful and unique piece of art made of bakelite, copper, nails, glass, and mirrored glass that can be hung on your wall," reads the item's description.
    Its dimensions are 4.75" x 9" x 1." Here is what it looks like:
    [​IMG]For $5,000, you get a lot more than blood. Also included is Episode 1 of the game itself, a number of digital items including a /bloodrain emote (see the full list here), as well as the opportunity to visit the Portalarium offices in Austin, Texas (travel costs not included).
    Go to eBay to learn more about this.
    Shroud of the Avatar was revealed in March 2013. Garriott and his team successfully funded the game on Kickstarter, while the developer continues to accept pledges on its website.
