ANNIVERSARY EDITION NAME: Ancient Text

    Uttering the words "Dense Fog" to the mysterious seal in the Arcane Labyrinth, Firion and his friends were transported to the depths of a misty cavern. Within this cavern was a mysterious treasure chest that could not be opened, until the heroes found a switch in the cavern's northeast corner. Inside the chest was an Ancient Text, telling the tale of a group of evil Dragoons named Orga, Vishuss and Maya. They spread havoc across the land, flying atop their black Wyverns. However, they were met by a mighty warrior hired by one of the ravaged towns' Laird. The warrior vanquished Orga and Maya in combat, but Vishuss snuck off to the Laird's home where he murdered the Laird. The warrior arrived at the Laird's home and finally defeated Vishuss. Firion and his friends would encounter the spirits of Orga, Vishuss, Maya and the Laird by using the key term "Dragoons" in the Arcane Labyrinth.

GAME INFO
    The Ancient Text is found in a treasure chest in the southeast corner of Dense Fog, but can only be opened after flipping the switch in the northeast corner.
    The Ancient Text reveals a hint about successfully completing Dragoons, by telling the order in which to fight the spirits (first Maya, then Orga, then Vishuss).

NAME ORIGIN
    Ancient indicates something has existed from a very remote period of time. The word derives from the Latin word ante, meaning "before". Text is the original words of something written or printed. The word comes from the Latin word textus meaning "written account".
