"As a test if your abilities, Queen Terrellia wants you to retrieve a family heirloom that was recently stolen. No ordinary heirloom, this is the legendary sword known as The Avenger.
The sword was stolen by agents of Zargon and taken to a small fortress along the southern border of the Empire. The Iron door is the only way in or out of the fortress. Once you have found The Avenger, leave through the iron door and bring the sword to Queen Terrellia."
Cliff the Elver was on the quest the last time anyone heard from him. May he rest in peace.
