Welcome to Lorim!
Sumo and Chocobo arrive at Lorim, finding everyone but the king is frozen. The king mentions that Julius summoned monsters into the world, and the monster named Kary froze the townsfolk.. Thus, Sumo and Chocobot head out to the Cara Mountain Range.
After Kary's defeat, Sumo picks up Chocobot along the way back to Lorim. Sumo meets Cibba, who gives him a key to open the cave in the Floatrocks up the river near Ammonite Coast. After claiming the legendary sword from the guardian monster, Cibba tells Sumo he'll finish his story.
Sumo returns with the rusted sword, and Cibba tells him that the only thing left to do is to reveal the Dime Tower in the Desert of Crystal. Sumo asks him how, and Cibba replies that he should use the sword in the Cave of Ruins. Sumo is surprised to hear that the rusty sword contains such great power. Cibba tells him that the legendary sword only shows its real power when it approves of its wielder, stating that if he's a real Knight of Gemma it will help him. Before Sumo leaves, Cibba gives him directions to the Cave of Ruins, located in the desert near Ish, and further mentions that Dr. Bowow knows it well.
