Lady Minfilia has asked you visit the Ashcrown Consortium. Hurry to the Peasants Ward in Gridania. Your Path companion is already en route.

---

Upon your arrival at the Consortium, all the sylphs in the main hall shriek and run outside. Speak with Heydyn at the front door and let him know who you are before someone calls the Holtwatch.

Heydn escorts you to a room where the Ashcrown Consortium Interlocutors Shanga Meshanga and Troxia, as well as Path Companion, have been patiently awaiting your arrival. After introductions are senn to, the Interlocutors proceed in telling you about the history of Eorzea's crystal trade and how until recently most of the realm's crystals have been obtained by negotiating with beast tribes such as the Amalj'aa and the Ixal. With the advent of being known as the "primals," however, the tribes refuse to part with their supplies. In an attempt to convince the Amalj'aa to restart negotiations, you and your Path Companion are to travel to Camp Drybone in eastern Thanalan and meet up with Ashcrown party already in the area.

---

The moment you arrive in Camp drybone, you receive a call on your Path linkpearl. Your Path companion has located the Amalj'aa excavation site within a mesa to the southwest of the camp. Travel to the location and rendezvous with <<your path companion>>> before continuing your search for the advance party.

    • Up to two party members may accompany you.

---

You find the Ashcrown party already engaged in negotiations with a band of Amalj'aa and Ixal; though it does not seem that they are making any headway. Speak with the party leader, Nananoby, to see if there is anything you can do to aid in his endeavor.

    • Up to two party members may accompany you.

---

Nananoby claims that the two beast tribes are both on the verge of summoning their "primals," which, if they are successful, would mean the death of all those in the mesa caves. You must stop the summoning using any means necessary, be it by force or persuasion.

    • Up to two party members may accompany you.

---


You succeed in stalling the summoning rituals of both tribes, but before you can convince them to reopen negotiations with the Ashcrown Consortium, a creature whom Nananoby and the sylphs call an "Ascian" appears and frightens off the remaining Amalj'aa and Ixal. Just as you think the day's efforts were for naught, your Path companion spots a large sack of crystals left forgotten by the beastmen. Return with the bag to the Consortium an report to Hedyn your findings.
