Looking for some classic gaming knowledge help


For the last couple days, I've been recalling an old RPG sidequest that I can't remember the origin of.

The basic details are that your party is travelling in the overworld via a mobile castle of some kind, but you hit an invisible obstacle and can't move. Going into the basement of the castle reveals a dungeon you've run over that you can explore.

I mostly remember this from an old Nintendo Power section from back in the 1990s, so I don't know precisely what this actually is or what system it was for, but we've got enough classic gamers around here, I figured that might jar someone's memory. :lol

It's from Final Fantasy VI. Castle Figaro becomes a mobile, borrowing machine. used in a few plot points. After you regain it in the World of Ruin if you burrow from Kohlingen to South Figaro the engineer will pull you out of the animation to say you hit something. Going down into the prison will let you find the Ancient Castle, a bonus dungeon.

You can get the Odin (or Raiden) Magicite there and an option monster-in-a-box boss gives you the Offering/Master Scroll.
