Quest for the Crown
V1.0.0,, Low – Medium, G
By Anne & Paul Duynisveld
Author Hints:
We like using containers, bookcases, etc. We like talking to our animals. Have your Party prepared before entering each new section. Be sure to save game before entering the Tower! Lots of info in the dialogue boxes. If your memory isn’t good, have a pencil and paper ready.
To anyone to do our scenario with the low default party. It can be done but you have to utilize everything carefully and have an excellent knowledge of your Party Members and their capabilities. Have Fun!

(ed.) I didn’t use the “default” Party, because I prefer a different make up of characters, (2 Fighters, 2 Priests, 2 Mages), but I did start with a Level 1 Party, as recommended. I saved often, explored everything and did not throw anything away. Either use it, or sell it. It’s diversified and challenging and should only be played at Level 1. This is a most enjoyable scenario. I strongly recommend it to new Players.

“I have found a very old Crown that may well be the Crown that Queen Aleesha spoke to me about. It is centuries old as far as I can ascertain.” His voice has lowered to a rumbling level. (Thank Goodness!)
The legend tells of a lowly peasant who became a great ruler with the help of the Crown. The stones in the Crown represent; Wisdom…Knowledge…Justice…Love and Peace…and Long Life. Eons ago, the Crown was lost in a major disaster.
My grand-dragons were digging and found a Crown which they brought to me. Imprints in the metal tell me it is the Crown we are seeking. So the legend had to have occurred in this realm. Our problem is that all the gems are missing.
An ancient jewel mine to the West, in the mountains, was abandoned generations ago. It is the closest mine to where the Crown was found and might be a place to start. Also…
There is an ancient prospector that lives to the North. He used to prospect in the area and might be of help. He is a loner, but loves to talk of the old days.
Bring any unique jewels to me and I will try to replace them in the Crown. If you are successful, then Queen Aleesha and I might be able to help King Al.”

Say, to Koth, “Special”, five times; once for each of the jewels, as Koth fits them into the Crown.
Koth says, “The Crown is ready. I have sent word to the Castle and the Queen and King are to arrive shortly.” As he speaks, they arrive with all their staff.
Koth addresses the Queen, “Your majesty, the Crown is ready. Shall we try it on the King to see if it works?”
“Yes, with all speed, Koth. King Al grows worse by the moment.” Queen Aleesha replies.
Koth places the Crown gently on the Kings head. Nothing happens for about a minute and then the King shuts his eyes tightly and when he opens them wide, he shouts, “Scribe!…Quickly…I need to make a decree! We need to…”
As the King starts dictating to his scribe you whisper to Koth, “The Crown worked…could we make more for all the other people suffering from Al-Zhiemer’s disease?”
Koth replies sadly, “No. There is only one Crown and no one knows how the magic works. All I know is that the magic will be gone when King Al is gone. Maybe, someday, a Mage, Priest, or Healer will find a true cure.”
