King Solomon’s Ring

I am the signet ring of the wisest king who ever lived, and I bear a secret inscription. The one who can interpret it will discover how to destroy the Dragon. Yet no one knows where I am hidden, and there is no one left in the world who is wise enough to decipher my inscription.

Who will seek me out, the fabled ring? Pay heed to the stories. They still remember me. Find me! The monster must be overcome. He came from the North and he has laid waste to many countries. He feeds upon men and beasts, and he cannot be destroyed by fire. If he is not stopped, he will consume everything, and no living creature will be left on earth!
