Ready to go to your doom─er...I mean, get to work, are you? Good, good.
As per the chief's instructions, your task is to gather items the machines left behind that might prove useful for rebuilding our village.
Do you know any suitable places for this?
|The machines have a base deep in the tunnels.||There's a ruined factory strewn with machina.|
Oho, that sounds perfectly forbidding!
While you're out there searching, I'll get my tools ready for dismantling.
I look forward to seeing the spoils of your foray!
How goes the search? I stand ready to dismantle the spoils of your foray!
Well, drench my beard, I've never seen anything like this... It's not going to suddenly spring to life and strangle me, is it?
--- No? Well, if you're sure... I'll set about studying it at once. --- Oh, I should mention that the chief was looking for you. Seems he has news to share. It's something dreadful, I shouldn't doubt...
Have you spoken with the chief yet? Seems he has news to share. It's something dreadful, I shouldn't doubt...
Hm? Ready for another foray, are you? Well, if it wouldn't be too much of a bother...
Excellent! Let our inexorable march towards failure continue!
So, do you recall the machina you brought back last time? Unfortunately, they were rather far gone, and I couldn't salvage much of them. Do you think you could bring back more of the same?
|Consider it done.||If you think it best.|
Thank you! With the bits from the extra specimens, I think we can put together something useful─even if we're inevitably doomed to fail.
Please bring me more of the same machina as last time. With the bits from the extra specimens, I think we can put together something useful─even if we're inevitably doomed to fail.
Ah, yes, precisely the same as last time! This ought to suffice for our purposes, thank you!
You know, I've been feeling a little bit more optimistic in spite of myself. By keeping occupied with our work, I find my mind doesn't stray towards the doom and gloom as often as it used to. Seems it's better to take action than being idle with negative thoughts.
If only it weren't so hard to take action in the first place...
Well, I should be getting back to my work. Perhaps you could report to the chief, in case he has other tasks that want doing. Thanks again for bringing the parts!
