Dwarven Hollows


Dwarven Hollows (ドワーフの洞窟 [dwarf no doukutsu] or 'dwarven cave' in Japanese) is a cave system on a separate island on the floating continent in Final Fantasy III, and the only known place that dwarves inhabit. Beneath the Hollows is the Subterranean Lake, and in another cave system on the same island is the Molten Cave. The only other feature on the island is a chocobo forest.

The four Warriors of Light come to the Dwarven Hollows in search of the Fire Crystal on the advice of Desch. They discover the dwarves in a bind, as Gutsco has stolen their treasured Horn of Ice that lets them traverse the Molten Cave. The Warriors agree to help and manage to retrieve the Horn, only to lose both it and the other dwarven treasure to Gutsco. The Warriors then track him down to the Molten Cave and retrieve the horns, after which the grateful dwarves grant them both to the Warriors.


Note that the treasure room can only be accessed after clearing Molten Cave. Talk to the dwarf in the town square close to the entrance to the treasure room and he will open the way for you.
To access the Subterranean Lake, you must first change your party into toads.
