The game starts in Gamul Date 312 where Nigel, a treasure hunter who is 88 years old, far older than he appears. He is shown traversing a dungeon of rolling boulders and moving platforms called Jypta Ruins to acquire the Statue of Jypta. After selling this statue to a shop owner in a port town. Nigel is accosted by a wood nymph named Friday. She explains that she is being chased by three persistent yet bumbling thieves named Kayla, Ink and Wally because she knows the location of the legendary treasure of King Nole. Once Nigel spends most of his money on a bird to carry him to the island, Friday admits that while she doesn't know the exact location of the treasure she has a feeling where it is. The player controls Nigel from here on where he and Friday who accompanies him for the entire game, first journey through a dungeon until they fall into a river and end up in the care of the red furred bear people of Massan. When Nigel awakes, he finds his way to the neighboring village of Gumi where the yellow furred bear people are ready to sacrifice the daughter of Massan's leader, Fara. Nigel follows the crazed tribe into their shrine and breaks them of their curse, freeing Fara and earning the respect of both tribes and a clue to help him to the treasure.
