Completing Ultima IV without outside help (beyond a couple things I'd heard before deciding to play) is probably my greatest gaming accomplishment, ever. And by completing it, my character became the Avatar. There was no way I couldn't avatarize it.
I actually came back on the 14th and saw that it wasn't lifted and thought "welp, I guess the system isn't automatic, then. Let's keep a running count of how many days go by!"
Granted, I actually expected it to be a week or more, so you're ahead of the curve, really. Ah well.
