TitleSeeker of Sindar
Text I spent my life chasing the secrets of the Sindar, but here in these ruins, I've reached the end of my strength. And so I write some of what I have learned.

The Sindar area phantom race. They have been known throughout history and yet their true nature is a mystery.

They came from the northand travelled south, leaving mysterious ruins behind them.

Legends say the clan leader had a cursed rune inscribed on his forehead.

It granted eternal life but doomed the clan to a life of wandering.

They say a secret treasure lies at the heart of the ruins, but there are many traps, and most seekers find only death, like myself...

TitleThe 27 True Runes
Text "Birth of the 27 True Runes"

In the beginning there was Darkness. The Darkness lived alone for eons. Suffering in solitude for so long a time, the Darkness finally shed a Tear.

From this Tear, two brothers were born, Sword and Shield. Sword bragged that he could cut anything to pieces and to that Shield answered that nothing could ever harm him.

And so the two went to war. The battle raged for seven days and seven nights. Sword cut Shield, Shield smashed Sword.

Fragments of Sword rained down and formed the sky. Fragments of Shield rained down and formed the earth. Sparks from the battle became the stars.

The 27 jewels adorning Sword and Shield became the"27 True Runes", and the World came into being.

TitleA Guide to Trading
Text "A Guide to Trading"

Always gather information before trading. Check the prices of goods at the trading posts in each area. When you find items with price differences, buy low and sell high. That's the basis of all trade.

Trading posts keep inventory. If you buy all of the trade items from a certainlocation, it will take some time for them to be restocked. So it wouldn't be a bad idea to find a route where you can visit 3 trading posts in a row.

For example, buy "salt" in South Window. Then sell the salt in Forest Village and buy "sugar". Sell the "sugar" in Kobold Village and buy "mayonnaise". Then head back to South Window.

Inexpensive items don't bring much profit. So leave your items in your warehouse so you can trade many items at one time.

There is a lot of false information going around, so try to find reliable people to take advice from.

TitleThe Gate Rune War
Text "The Gate Rune War"

The war in which the Toran Republic defeated the Scarlet Moon Empire is known as the "Gate Rune War" or the "Liberation War".

The first leader of the victorious Liberation Army was a woman named Odessa Silverburg. She was originally imperial nobility, but her lover was killed by the Empire and so she joined the Resistance and formed the Liberation Army.

The original members were Flik, Humphrey and Sanchez, but according to another member, Viktor, the later victories were due to the intervention of McDohl, son of the 6th imperial general.

During the war, Odessa was killed and McDohl took over leadership of the Liberation Army. McDohl followed the advice of General Mathiu and set up Toran Castle as the New Liberation Army base. After many battles, they succeeded in overthrowing Emperor Barbarossa. However after helping form a new nation, McDohl journeyed off to somewhere without ever seeing the fruits of his long labor.
