|Found in||Dragon Quest|
Erdrick's Tablet, or Erdrick's Monument or Monolith, is an item from Dragon Quest. It can be located in Erdrick's Cave northwest of Tantegel Castle. The tablet tells the Hero that he is a descendant of Erdrick and gives some explanation of what needs to be accomplished.
The tablet reads: "I am Erdrick and thou art my descendant. Three items were needed to reach the Isle of Dragons which is south of Brecconary. I gathered these items, reached the island, and there defeated a creature of great evil. Now I have entrusted the three items to three worthy keepers. Their descendants will protect the items until thy quest leads thee to seek them out. When a new evil arises, find the three items, then fight!"
In the remake Dragon Quest I & II, the tablet is not found within a treasure chest, and appears to be more of a monument.
