    The Earthgift Shrine was a massive underground cavern located just north of Cornelia. One of the fabled Souls of Chaos, the Shrine was blocked by a large statue of the Fiend of Earth, the Lich, after the lands began to rot. After defeating the Lich, the statue disappeared and the Warriors of Light were able to enter the ancient Shrine. On its deepest level, the Warriors came face to face with the four guardians of the Shrine and destroyed them in combat, taking the treasures found within.

GAME INFO
    The Earthgift Shrine is an optional dungeon found in the mountains between Cornelia and the Chaos Shrine. Access to the Shrine is granted after defeating the Lich.

ADDITIONAL INFO
    The 5 floors inside the Earthgift Shrine are randomized each visit. Possible floors include a vast looping desert, a purple forest filled with undead soldiers, two floors resembling the first two floors of the Altar Cave from Final Fantasy III and the floor containing the four bosses.

NAME ORIGIN
    Earthgift is a combination of the words earth and gift. Earth is the name given to soil and dirt, the dry surface matter of our planet. It is one of the four classical elements present in the old world mythologies. The word comes from the Old English word eorthe. A gift is a present given to show favor to someone or honor a special occasion. The word comes from Old English. A shrine is a sacred place of religious devotion or commemoration. The word originally comes from the Latin word scrinium which means "case for books or papers".
