Finding Rosetta Stone

Final Fantasy 1 Update:
-Another Struggle continues.
-Coming back from Buffalo and watching Moana, I relax with FF1 playthrough on Sunday night.
-I have lots of money in this game right now.
-Guide says buy Protect Rings for everyone.
-I spend all the money in my purse to buy 4 Protect Rings. All strapped out.
-Guide says to go find a small patch of Desert to find a Caravan.
-Found the hidden caravan and wondering what to do now
-Guide says, buy the ‘Bottled Fairy for 50k’.
-LOL! WTF!I spent all my money. Had to improvise. Sold all of my old equipment and grinded to get this amount.
-Bought the bottle and opened it in the pond of town Gaia.
-A fairy comes out and gives me Oxyale.
-Apparently have to go to a water fall up north.
-In the Waterfall cavern, a Ribbon is attainable. A great piece of accessory.
-The goal here is to talk to the Robot to get a cube.
-Another Cave Maze with tough enemies.
-The Protect Ring stops petrification so i survive the freaking birds.
-After I got the cube, used Warp2 to get out of there. Pretty useful magic spell.
-The Oxyale will help me breath under water. Off to the Sea Shrine I go.
-Went to Onrac town and i showed a woman the Oxyale.
-I didn’t even realize that she was a ghost. She just floated away.
-The submarine gave me a good cut scene.
-This shrine is very blue. Spent some time finding all of items. Pretty good ones.
-The last room, no enemies. Lots of mermaids spouting nonsense about some Kraken.-I see a room that is not attainable. Here’s the kicker, it actually is reachable but the screen plays tricks on you.
-You have to cut to the top left of the screen that ends up on the top right section room with the chest.

Pretty sneaky Squaresoft. Don’t do that again.

-The chest contains a Rosetta Stone. I laugh and think ‘is this the reason why the translating program that people use is named Rosetta Stone’. LOL! Mindblown.
-I’m supposed to give this to the know it all of Melmond.
-I am following the guide and it said, do these sidequests first before continuing the Sea Shrine.
-Weird but whatever, let’s do this.
-I go to Melmond and speak to the nerd who speak Japanese cough Lefunian i mean.

Lufenia
-He goes and says ‘I will teach you how to speak in a short time’. I’m like, can I learn faster than that.
-With my newly native tongue of Lefunia, i go to the top right of the world map.
-With big ass Airship comes responsibilities.
-No place to park again. Freaking game. I have to park in Asia and the country I need to be is in Europe.
-Cardio to reach the village.
-This Village was cool. Pretty futuristic. I learn here that the Airship was built by them.
-There’s a guy named Tiamat on a floating fortress.
-No item store here. Thanks a lot futuristic village who doesn’t have medical aid.
-A guy gave me a Chime. Not sure what it does.
-There’s a hidden Black and White Magic shop here. I had to follow the trail secretly.
-I check the inventory and I see Holy and Flare. The cost was 60k per spell.
-HOLYYYY!!!!! That’s freaking expensive.
-I can’t leave without these. Back to the grinding board.
-Coming up is the Tower in the desert.
-The Struggle continues.
