    • Olmec: One of the wiliest rulers of the Dark Ages was Clovis I, the founder of France. In the Late 400's, he defeated the Romans and conquered the other Germanic tribes to create a French Kingdom. But it was not easy. Once, his army was pushed back to the banks of the great river -- the Rhine. Legend has it, the German King sent a messenger.
      Messenger: My master says you are trapped and cannot escape. He bids you surrender.
      Clovis I: I'd rather chew glass.
      Olmec: But minutes later, when arrows began to rain down on them, Clovis' general panicked.
      General: Sire, we're outnumbered. Our backs are to the river, and these arrows are making my helmet a pincushion. If we do not surrender, they'll cut us to ribbons.
      Clovis I: No way. We'll cross the river.
      General: But, Sire, the water is deep, and in our armor, we'll drown or rust.
      Clovis I: Stop whining, you nay seeing ninny, and follow me.
      Olmec: And with that, Clovis ran into the water and, to everyone's astonishment, did not sink. The amazed Germans dropped their arms and ran.
      General: How did you do that, Sire?
      Clovis I: It's a sandbar. I knew that the water was shallow by the lilies growing there.
      Olmec: Because the lilies saved him, Clovis changed his emblem from three toads to three lilies and added them to his crown. Your quest is to find The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I and bring it back here.
      Kirk: All right, so tell us, where is this Crown, Olmec?
      Olmec: The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I can be found in The Quicksand Bog.
