Help with Wizardry VI (Here me out)

I know this if for hardware, but I really don't think I'll get an answer from anyplace else. I've tried search engines first of course, but that didn't turn anything up. I've made my party and this message appeared: "Type the Magicword for these Icons", and beside it are various odd symbols. I haven't done anything, because I don't want to mess anything up.

It's the old-school copy protection... if you bought the game legally from Steam or gog.com, it should have come with a manual containing the answer to the question.

Have you checked the manual? From what I can tell, this is its copy protection, so you should be able to find the necessary information in the manual.

This is one of many ways copy protection used to work. There was no DRM back then, games just came on floppy discs and anyone could copy the floppies without issue. Game designers used different method to validate that you purchased the game, for example by having you look up the first word of a random page of the manual of the game, which you presumably wouldn't have if you didn't buy the game. If per chance you had a photocopy of the manual, well, you were good to go... but there were other protection mechanisms that were hard/impossible to photocopy.
