Thank you for assisting me with my investigations. I shall seek out our companions and share what we have learned.
...Much as I would like to tell you to sit down and leave the rest to us, your condition demands that we make all reasonable haste.
If you are not too weary, it may be useful to speak with Paushs Ooan again, and ask if there is aught else he is willing to divulge.
Ah, Alphinaud's friend. You and your companions have done much to repair the damage caused when the waters parted...
...Anything elssse you can do? Hmmm... Have you been to the Walls of the Forgotten?
What will you say?
Answer 1
!I...think I've just come from them.
!Are they the ruins to the northwest?
The remnants to the northwest, yesss? You visited them unbidden? Pshhh... Could it be that your footsteps were guided by the ancientsss...?
Yesss, that is the sacred site of which I ssspeak. Could it be that your footsssteps were guided there by the ancientsss...?
I believe it may be ssso. Listen then, and I will tell you of our plans to bring light to the Walls, that we might answer the shining call of the illuminated land.
We have requested a finless craftsman to shape for us a sssacred lamp. He is odd for a land-dweller, choosing as he does to live in the ocean, but his ssskill is beyond question.
It is concerning, however, that we have heard nothing of his progress. If you were to visit this artisan and return with our long-awaited light, then any doubt as to your purpossse would be laid to ressst.
His name is “Grenoldt.” You will find his workshop in a metal structure to the sssouth.
Go, visit Grenoldt in his “Workbench.” Bring back the lamp we asssked for, and all will be as the ancients desired.
Oh, that's just great, that is. Me mind's playin' tricks on me now. “Look, Grenoldt! Someone's come to visit ye at the bottom o' the bleedin' ocean!”
Or might be as yer a ghost, eh? Go on, foul shade, feast yerself on me rotten soul...
I've got no use for it. A craftsman what can't craft is more pointless than a sea slug with a domin' hammer. An' that's an insult to bloody sea slugs...
Worthless, that's what I am...
What is it ye want, specter? If yer not here to end me misery, then bugger off back to damnation...
...Eh? Ye wouldn't be tryin' to raise me spirits now, would ye, spirit? Not what ye'd expect from a servant o' the netherworld...
What will you say?
Answer 1
!Has it really come to this...?
!Have we met before?
!Are you Grenoldt, then?
!Have we met before?
...What's that supposed to mean? Not impressed with what ye see, lad?
Aye, well...I may have let meself go a bit. This was meant to be me underwater sanctuary─a place where I could concentrate on me work, far from the distractions o' the outside world...
Er... Might be as we crossed paths back in the Crystarium, but I don't reckon we've been formally introduced.
Name's Grenoldt. An' this here's meant to be me underwater sanctuary─a place where I can give meself over to me work, far from the distractions o' the outside world...
Aye. Though I wonder how ye bloody well found me...
This here's meant to be me underwater sanctuary─a place where I can give meself over to me work, far from the distractions o' the outside world...
...An' yet, here ye stand. Now what's so damned important that ye'd dive all the way down to bottom o' the bleedin' Tempest to bother me?
Ah... The Ondo's lamp...
Gods curse me empty head! I've not so much as made a start!
I'm worth less than a sea slug... Nay, the slime left by a sea slug. Me delivery date's long past, me workbench is untouched... An' I call meself a bleedin' artisan!
Ye've heard their beliefs, have ye? Bringin' light to them ruins'll be an act of deep religious an' cultural significance!
An' it was my privilege as a craftsman to be tasked with providin' a ritual instrument worthy o' the occasion. But I just...can't...bloody well...
GAAAH! Me mind's a bleedin' blank! It's like I've pissed away me last drop of inspiration!
Tell me ye've got summat to show me─summat as'll give me muse a right good kick up the arse...?
The Ondo want to honor the comin' o' these ancients, so their answerin' light's got to blaze with the right kind o' brightness.
Like...like the spark o' life caught in a crystal. But just bein' sparkly's not enough─it's got to dance with joy an' sorrow an' a sense o' hardship endured... Ye know what I mean!?
It's no good... I need summat special to light a fire under me piss-sodden imagination.
Like...like the spark o' life caught in a crystal. But just bein' sparkly's not enough─it's got to dance with joy an' sorrow an' a sense o' hardship endured... Ye know what I mean!?
I've let the Ondo down, aye... But more'n that I've let meself down. Might as well go back to mendin' kettles...
!Show Grenoldt a crystal which once belonged to one of Ardbert's companions?
...Wh-What's that ye've got there!?
Such strikin' beauty... It shines with heartache an' laughter an' the transience o' life, like the turmoil o' history made manifest!
Aye, I can see the brilliance o' the crystal's legacy! Ahhh...ye'd never capture such a gleam, not if ye labored a hundred years...
But bugger me if I don't mean to try! Where're me tools, gods damn ye!? I must set to work before the feelin' fades!
