Final Fantasy Wiki

The Village of the Ancients, also known as the Ancients' Village, is a town in Final Fantasy III. It is the home of the Ancients, known to the people of Tokkul as a "village to the west". It is located directly west of the Chocobo Woods. It is also the hometown of Desch.[note 1] A Revification spring can be found here.

This is an optional area. A red-haired boy offers the party a prize of Gnomish Bread if the player can ride a chocobo all the way around the edge of the continent. Gnomish Bread allows the user to see all locations on the World Map, even if they have not been there previously.

The Inn here charges 120 gil.
