"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!"

—Erdrick's Tablet (Dragon Quest) (NES)

"My name is Loto. To my descendant... To reach the demonic island that can be seen from Tantegel, three magic implement were needed. I used them to cross the sea and defeat the lord of demons. I will entrust the three mystic items with three sages. Their descendants will guard them. When evil returns to that island, collect the items and fight it. The three sages are waiting. It is your duty to go, my progeny!"
