Rozol Cattlan the Prudent requests the aid of a Disciple of the Hand with sufficient elbow grease to see him smoothly through a difficult task.
※The crafting portion of this quest is recommended for Disciples of the Hand level 6 and above.
  • Rozol Cattlan has asked you to synthesize for him a component for the Dezul Qualan's aerodynamo─a delicate instrument which will help keep the airship aloft after takeoff. The Ehcatl Nine knotcounter has personally spoken with Templeton and does not believe you will need to bribe the Highwind Skyways representative to gain access to the crafting facilities at the Observatorium. The knotcounter also does not believe a thing Templeton says, so he warns you to be ready to perform some random task for the unappreciative sot.
※Please note that the difficulty of this quest has been synced to your current level.
  • Too bothered to walk up a few flights of stairs, Templeton agrees to allow you access to the crafting facilities only if you will deliver a Highwind Skyways timetable to Jocea atop the astroscope tower and return with a signature proving she received the document.
  • You have upheld your end of the bargain and delivered the timetable to Jocea. Now return to Templeton with her signature─proof proper of your deed.
  • Templeton is every bit as dishonest as advertised, and now you have full access to the Highwind Skyways temporary crafting facilities. Use the materials given to you by Rozol Cattlan and inspected by Templeton to synthesize a high-quality aerodynamo component, and deliver the finished product to the faction.
※In the event that the status Facility Access: Production II wears off or the synthesis ends in failure, you may try again by speaking with Templeton.
  • You have delivered the aerodynamo component to Rozol Cattlan and though he appears loath to do so, he begrudgingly admits that it will more than likely meet Duzal Meyean the Steady's strict quality standards.

Sqwak sqwak! Duzal Meyean the Steady! Duzal Meyean the Steady! Comes, he does. Soon, he does! Looking for imperfections, he is. Looking for blood, he is. My blood, he is! If my blood, he has, your blood, I claim!


Sqwak sqwak! Now, the Dezul Qualan, an aerodynamo, she needs─a fine dynamo with fine shielding! Sqwak! Keep the internal gyroscope from cold and rust, they shall! Keep flyers from falling, they shall! Sqwak!


Sqwak sqwak! Now, the Dezul Qualan, an aerodynamo, she needs─a fine dynamo with fine lubricant! Sqwak! Keep the internal gyroscope gyrating, they shall! Keep flyers from falling, they shall! Sqwak!


Sqwak sqwak! Now, the Dezul Qualan, an aerodynamo, she needs─a fine dynamo with fine dampeners! Sqwak! Keep the internal gyroscope from vibrating, they shall! Keep flyers from falling, they shall! Sqwak!


Require extreme care in crafting, do such things. The Steady is watching, he is! Proper equipment, one must have. Yet proper equipment, have you not. Sqwak! In the hands of the slothful, it does rest. At the Observatorium, it does rest, watched over by featherless one such as you. Templeton─a man most corrupt. A man most indolent. Sqwak sqwak!


Idle, he lies. Like a swine in the sty, he lies! Like a corse in a crypt, he lies! Tempt this shiftless sluggard, you must. Sqwak! Tempt him with the promise of eternal indolence. Tempt him with your willingness to work, and facilities, yours, they shall be! But remember, first, his game, you must play. Materials, he must inspect. Approval, he must give. Sqwak sqwak!
Quest Accepted

Another shifty-eyed adventurer here to take advantage of poor Templeton, are we? Well, I'll have you know, I am a veritable rock! Unmoved by the ungentlemanly jostlings of the world's ne'er-do-wells! Unbroken by the pounding pleas of hollow-hearted heels!


Unless, there is something in it for me, of course. A rolling stone gathers no moss, but why would I want moss when I could have things?


And one thing I could use right now is a pair of healthy adventurer legs to carry this important timetable up an ungodly amount of stairs. Though, I suppose a pair would be two things... Pah! Semantics!


Present the document to Jocea at the apex of the astroscope tower and return with her signature so that I may know that you did not simply run over to the pub and kill a bell or three. What? Where's the trust? I did not get to where I am today by placing my faith in every vagrant and vagabond that came a-rap-tap-tapping at my door.
Sqwak! Money, time is! Sqwak! Tempt Templeton, you must. Sqwak! Tempt him with the promise of eternal indolence. Tempt him with your willingness to work, and facilities, yours, they shall be! Sqwak!
An unknown face. Or perhaps simply a face forgotten. Far too many people pass through the tower to remember all of them. Have you business with me?

Ah, the timetable I requested. I was beginning to wonder when that do-nothing dullard from the Skyways would bring it to me. And why does it not surprise me that he found someone to see to the task for him?


You say he wants my signature as proof of your delivery? Absolutely not! Who knows what he will use it for! ............Not leaving, are you? Very well, then. I shall sign...but with my off hand. And only my initials! Now off with you!
I would take the timetable to Jocea myself but...those stairs─there's just so many of them. Now if she worked in the cellar...
Sqwak! Money, time is! Sqwak! Tempt Templeton, you must. Sqwak! Tempt him with the promise of eternal indolence. Tempt him with your willingness to work, and facilities, yours, they shall be! Sqwak!
You didn't actually walk up all those stairs, did you?
You did, didn't you! And here I was all ready to let you use the facilities anyway! Go on then. Get at it. Just try not to damage anything. A lot of unnecessary paperwork that would be. Ah, and I suppose you shall be wanting these materials returned, as well. Hm? Did I inspect them thoroughly? I don't know. Did it appear that I did? Good then! <wink> <wink>
You now have access to the crafting facility.
If he is dissatisfied with the signature, tell him...tell him...I cut my hand on the parchment and could barely hold the quill and─ Why must I, too, be caught in this pathetic web of deceit!? Off with you and don't come back!
Sqwak! Money, time is! Sqwak! Tempt Templeton, you must. Sqwak! Tempt him with the promise of eternal indolence. Tempt him with your willingness to work, and facilities, yours, they shall be! Sqwak!
Sqwak! The aerodynamo component, you have completed! Inspect first, I must. My neck─our necks─in danger, they are. Sqwak!

...


......


............Passable, your work is. Pleased, Duzal will be. Saved, our necks are. Headed, you may remain...for now, sqwak!
System

Normal-quality items crafted in the course of this quest serve no purpose and cannot be sold. It is recommended that you discard them.


Quest Completed

It appears you've completed that contraption of yours. I shall not ask what it is for if you promise to remove it from here at once. It would be simply tragic if one of my supervisors were to walk in and I had to tell them of how you threatened to...er...cut my finger on this parchment and slowly bleed me to death if I didn't allow you access to our equipment. <wink> <wink>


If you need aught else, feel free to ask. I'll be right here practicing my hand at these initials...
You now have access to the crafting facility.
