Inserting Cards[edit]

Defeating Exodus[edit]

Wall broke down. Before your eyes. a mysteriously trembling ball of light is floating. Is this the one conjured up by evil wizards that expect the revival of Exodus? But soon, by the seal of the cards, the ball gradually lost its light. And at the same time, the earth began to snake strongly. The floor under your feet crumbled down! A voice sounds familiar said, "Exodus has been seald. Evacuate now!" It's Time Lord! You ran away from the crushing castle.


The Fire Castle crumbled away. the aera of fear is over. Many of the tongue of flame burned the sky. the Earth trembled with the cry of death agonies of Exodus. The dark clouds have covered the world are blown away with the fresh clean air.

Peace came back to the realm of Sosaria again. Now the world is calm. No evil creature's roar, no pain, and no tragedy anymore. All is the past.

You, 4 heros, came back to the Castle British, the goal of your journey. Returning in triumph, you recalled these long and difficult battling days.

Young and wise king, Lord British welcomed you and said.

"Welcome back Oh true heros! Can you hear the praise of people? We have won the true peace and glory. Come these is something to show you.

King lead you to the balcony from which you could overlook the whole town. A large crowd of people had come to applause you. And on the northern horison, there was a great rough mountain range that you haven't seen before.

"When you sealed Exodus, there occurred a big earthquake, and it upheaved that mountain range. Doesn't it look like a spine of a snake, does it? So we like to name it Serpent's Spine. The story of your great work will be handed down by the birth of Serpent's Spine.

The Hell-born incarnate of evil that uneased people exorcised completely. The story of these heros handed down by Ioro the bard.

People enjoyed prosperity and peace.

But, who knows when the evil would come back with the terror and demolition. In case of such situation, another quest of Avatar would need you again.
