I know, this hack is old and I'm a bit late to the party, but I've been playing it for awhile now and find it quite charming. I think I've covered 3/4 of the world, if I base it on the original Dragon Warrior game, and so far there is one thing I haven't figured out.
Where is that darn Ankh?
I'm assuming the Ankh is the equivalent to the Fairy Flute in DW, which was originally located in Kol (Nico Resort in this game), but I can't find it anywhere. I'm given all sorts of clues, but I haven't figured it out yet.
1. I have a Sapphire Ring that when used says "The fake man in Usand." I've seen some interesting folks in Usand, but nobody I can call fake.
2. In Usand, somebody makes the claim that somebody else had the Ankh on him. Also in Usand, somebody tells me to search the sign for a sign.
3. In Nico Resort (north of Usand and the Swamp Cave), somebody tells me a man died in one of the rooms, and that he was going on about the Ankh.
I've searched each room, extinguished my keys on all the locked doors, searched each store/inn sign, and still nothing.
If somebody's played this game recently, please tell me what I'm doing wrong.
