The Village of the Ancients, also known as the Ancients' Village, is a town in Final Fantasy III. As its name would suggest, it is the home of the Ancients. The people of Tokkul mention it as a "village to the west" and it is located directly west of the Chocobo Woods. It is also the hometown of Desch.
This is an optional area. A red-haired boy offers the party a prize of Gnomish Bread if the player can ride a chocobo all the way around the edge of the continent. Gnomish Bread allows the user to see all locations on the World Map, even if they have not been there previously.
