For any religion, mystics follow a spiritual path which involves direct address to the spiritual forces (rather than indirectly addressing them through priests); cultivating an intuitive awareness of spiritual things (rather than simply hearing about them from their priests); and a personal experience of the sacred or magical (rather than looking towards priests or absent saints who experience it for them). There are Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and Buddhist mystics, among others.

Powerful weapons and Armour found in Ultima III (My second favourite Ultima, after Ultima IV). Mystics were not as strong as some of the other weapons, but they were extremely light.

Spoiler! (but if you haven't played ultima 3 by now, you probably never will) Mystics were found by going to a small island to the north of sosaria, and using the (O)ther command and typing <dig>

This morning
     Upon walking into the bathroom
And looking
     Above the sink, where the mirror used to be

A window
     Into another world
I found
     Through which stood

A man
     Beyond my years
And wider
     By far

Than I
     Within tired eyes, Then
Recognition swelled
     Behind tears
