Edit A Dragon's Resolve's Dialogue
Looking to head back to Lapis Manalis? Just say the word.
Venture to Lapis Manalis?
Oh, Azdaja... What has become of you, that even your eye should be so spent of aether...
I cannot bear the thought of her being held captive a moment longer, but how will I find her? What must I do?
Calm yourself, Vrtra.

I appreciate that you are upset, but such passion clouds your judgment. You must endeavor to remain composed.

When your mind is clear, we may consider how to proceed with our search.
<sigh> You are right...
In the meantime, I will help Alphinaud and Alisaie back at the village.
That sounds like a fine idea. We should go as well.
Quest Accepted
Pray give me a moment longer.
Leave Vrtra be. He needs time alone with his thoughts.
We're to help Alphinaud and Alisaie, are we? There's little else of interest here, so I wouldn't be opposed to the diversion.
Let us take comfort in the knowledge that the voidgate is closed, and that the people of Garlemald need fear the voidsent hordes no longer.
Oh, you've come too.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
I don't see Vrtra with you. Is everything all right?
He needs a moment to himself. While he is indisposed, we thought we'd lend you a hand.
I've just finished patrolling the area, so we're fine on that front.

There are no signs of voidsent, and I doubt we'll see any more now that the gate has been closed.

As for Alphinaud, he's set his sights on the ceruleum spring. We're hoping to take as much of the stuff as the snowcraft can bear.

That much fuel would keep the people warm for a good while.
We've managed to procure a few suitable containers for transporting the ceruleum, and were about to return to the spring.
If you've a mind to scrounge up more containers, I can take what you have now and get them filled.
Thank you, Estinien. The more we can load into the snowcraft, the better.
Would you and Y'shtola mind helping us with our search, then?
You'll need to take any suitable containers to the spring, and then back to the snowcraft once you've filled them with ceruleum.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.
It is a welcome change to have Zero helping of her own volition. Perhaps she is finally beginning to trust us.
Hmmm, will this be solid enough?
Any luck finding a container?
Bottomless Barrel
This is less a container and more a sieve, given its poor condition and visible holes...
Dilapidated Barrel
This is less a container and more a sieve, given its poor condition and visible holes...
Hole-poked Barrel
This is less a container and more a sieve, given its poor condition and visible holes...
Sturdy Barrel
The container appears to be well suited for repurposing. It would be a fine choice for ceruleum storage.
We just need to carry this liquid fire to the snowcraft? Sounds simple enough.
The container is now filled to the brim with ceruleum.
If that one has been filled, you should hurry and take it to the snowcraft.

Estinien has already seen to the rest.

Go on ahead. The others asked that I remain here in the event they find more.
Good work, my friend. I expect we'll have a sizable load to deliver.
The snowcraft is all but overflowing with ceruleum containers. However, several of your comrades have yet to arrive. Perhaps a nearby vantage point will afford you a more favorable view of their return.

Is Vrtra not back yet?
My apologies for the delay.
Are you all right?
I am. As distressing as this turn of events was, the eye itself gives me cause to hope.

While it is no longer possessed of Azdaja's will, it may yet lead us to her.

Were it not for your encouragement, I would never have dared to embark on my search, much less come this far.

I will not lose faith. I will find my sister, wheresoever she may be.
We'll return the eye to her together.
Though tainted, the eye has not fully succumbed to Darkness. Azdaja herself may have been able to resist its influence.
Well, as much as we'd love to take part in your next foray, we can't abandon our efforts here.
Indeed. We'll need to keep a close watch in case the voidgate opens again as well.
Though should it prove safe to do so, I have some ideas for how we might put this village to use.
Do what you must. We will manage.
To free Azdaja, I expect we will have to deal with Golbez once and for all─after which you may undertake your work without worry.
We look forward to the glad tidings.
You'll take good care of everyone, won't you?
What? Why do you ask me this?
Because comrades look out for one another, and I can't think of anyone more qualified to keep them safe.
True. I will do no less than I've promised.
If our respective plans are settled, then let us head back.
Player7 Icon.png The Unending Journey: # 1: Voiced cutscene end.
I must apologize for my bout of melancholy. To be so easily shaken ill becomes a great wyrm.
You have remained at my side and ever offered me support and encouragement. I haven't the words to thank you.
Vrtra has quelled the tempest within his heart. He should be fine.
I'm not your keeper, nor do I know what you expect of me. But I will keep my word.
That Azdaja's eye hasn't succumbed to Darkness bespeaks her incredible resilience.
So let us trust in this sign that she yet lives, and be not deterred in our efforts.
It was good seeing you again. I hope you'll remember to call on us sooner the next time you need help.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
I suppose this is where we part ways for now.
Though we have every faith in you, we will pray for your safety all the same.
I'm glad we had the chance to talk, Zero. Take care, and till next time!
Till next time.
