You can find a gold pedestal here in the pond. You can sell it to the shopkeeper in Minea for $2,000.
Ys once flourished because of a metal called CRERIA. The great temple in the hills was a reflection of that prosperity. And then the great trouble began.
At that time, Ys was ruled by two goddesses and six high priests. The goddesses were the sources of life for everybody, and symbolized the strength of Ys.
What was the "Great trouble," thou asketh? An enemy appeared suddenly, and attacked the town. Lava burst forth from the ground, burning all in its path! We ran in all directions to escape. Somehow, the CRERIA was the root of our trouble. We sealed what CRERIA remained deep inside the earth. If we were ever to dig it up, the trouble would start again.
We have been trapped in the great temple by six giant creatures. They gradually close in on us. We have decided we must leave this land, but have faith that we shall return.
The enemy gathers his minions to attack us. While the people suffer in terror, our goddesses have disappeared from before our very eyes, and have not been seen since. There is an item which has been passed down through the generations in the JEMMA family. It is a transparent medallion made of a blue metal. This medallion contains enough power to smash any curse or spell cast by evill magic.
The dawn is brilliant; the enemy's attack has suddenly stopped. Why, I know not, but it is a happy occurence, for the current disaster has temporarily left our land. We will seal the power of Ys in these books for the day when the travellers return. Whoever gathers these six books will be able to draw on that power and restore peace to this troubled land.
Dawn begins to brighten the world. The silhouette of the tower rises against the sky. Birds start to call as the evil creatures melt in the light of day. A great burden is lifted from ARON's heart and peace descends on the land. ARON sees the history of Ys unfold before him. The events of the books appear and fade away...a tale centuries lived in a heartbeat. Then the goddesses of Ys appear before them. Even though he cannot see their faces, ARON somehow knows them well. ARON stands still as stone and gazes out over the land. He can barely see JEBA's home in the distance. His thoughts return to FEENA. If he were to return now, he would first seek her to talk of the events that have come to pass... and other things. But a soft light surrounds ARON, as if he has been blessed by the goddesses of Ys. But some things will never be. Knowing this, ARON, the swordsman, sets off on his next adventure. THE END
