Quote of the Week


Rika is a green Ruki, an aficionado of Moltara and an inventor and tinkerer. She provides any gadgets and gizmos we may need, and is also the one we call on when we need to throw off pursuit, since no one can lay a confusing trail like a four-legged, two-armed breakdancer.


Quester's Guide to Illusen's Glade



When visiting this peaceful land, there are many things you can do – I, personally, suggest completing a quest for the kindly Earth Faerie, Illusen. The first question you probably want to ask is "Why should I complete a quest for Illusen?"

Taking a deep breath, she stepped back into the place. Shop after shop, she entered the books section, only to be fruitless. She was shocked. Surely such a book cannot be that rare to stock! Wilma had even read the book herself; it wasn't too hard to find. But somehow that day it was evading her. For two hours she roamed the shops, looking aimlessly for the book.

"What were you thinking, Mom?" Tonnie shouted. "Who ever, EVER, gave you the slightest hint I might want to study at Cap'n Threelegs' Swashbuckling Academy on February 21st? That's Tonu Day. I'll simply die if you make me take training on the 19th too!" She turned over on her tummy with an angry bounce. No Tonu Parade for her, oh no! Extra training... that was her lot in life!
