Legio vigesima Valeria victrix, in English Twentieth Victorious Valeria Legion was a legion of the Imperial Roman army. The origin of the Legion's name "Valeria" is unclear and there are various theories. The legion was probably founded shortly after 31 BC by the emperor Augustus. It served in Hispania, Illyricum, and Germania before participating in the invasion of Britannia in 43 AD. It remained active in Britain until at least the beginning of the 4th century. The legion, which had a boar as its emblem, was based at the fortress of Deva Victrix, which is now the present-day city of Chester.

ORIGIN and its founder Richard "Lord British" Garriott "created worlds" from 1983 to 2004. Huge sagas like Ultima (!!!) and Wing Commander saw the light, then System Shock, Strike Commander, Crusader, Abuse, Shadow Caster and so on... In short: one of the most iconic softwarehouses from the '80 and '90. This logo is a vectors replica of the second version (the one I remember most fondly), then masked with scratches and age old dust. Hope you like it! :-D
