Obsolete Quest Journal Entries
According to Momodi, a person inquiring into the warding properties Velodyna cosmos has been exiled from the city. In the midst of your conversation, Thancred entered and the topic turned to rumors of war with the Empire and Garlean spies in Ul'dah. It seems that Niellefresne and his companions have been convening at the Platinum Mirage to discuss the prospects of fighting against the Empire. Learn what you can by speaking to others adventurers in the area.
Walking the halls of the Platinum Mirage, you are stopped by a Lalafell named Qoqoba standing before a door. Beyond lies a room frequented by Ul'dah's elite for their high-stakes pleasures, and suddenly you hear signs of an argument coming from within. It seems that Niellefresne and Greinfarr have been gambling, and the latter is accusing their opponent, Thancred, of cheating. Speak to them to learn more of what has transpired.
Thancred wagered against Niellefresne and the others in an attempt to have the truth out of them. The incident at the parade was orchestrated by Niellefresne in an attempt to make himself and his companions seem as heroes to the townspeople. However, they are shocked and saddened when they learn that a man has died as a result of their scheming. Remaining after the others leave, you are regarded suspiciously by an employee of the Platinum Mirage, and escorted out. Contact Momodi by linkpearl to speak of what you have learned.
Momodi informs you that none other then the Songstress of Ul'dah, F'lhaminn herself, has been by The Quicksand looking for you. Find your way to the Weaver's Guild at Sunsilk Tapestries and seek her out.
Deaustie of Sunsilk Tapestries tells you that you may find F'lhaminn at a place in northern Thanalan where she regularly goes to rehearse her art, and was kind enough to mark it on your map. Travel there and find F'lhaminn.
You find F'lhaminn precisely where Deaustie said you would. With her are the Lalafell twins of the Miners' Guild, Popokkuli and Seserukka, and the nature of their conversation is serious business. While speaking to F'lhaminn after the twins depart, Ascilia appears. Talk to her and listen to what she has to say.
The thaumaturge Corguevais comes while you are speaking to Ascilia and reveals that he and her father were here for the same purpose. He attempts to give Ascilia gil enough for her father's funeral, but she refuses and lashes out at him. Dejected, Corguevais leaves, after which F'lhaminn tells you that the thaumaturges are rumored to have the power to commune with the dead. Contact Momodi with your linkpearl to see if she has any sage advice to offer.
Momodi informs you that the thaumaturges, of Order of Nald'thal reside in Arrzaneth Ossuary in Ul'dah. As an adventurer, you can easily be welcomed there as a novice thaumaturge. Use you map and visit the Ossuary grounds.
Yayake of the thaumaturges greets you at Arrzaneth Ossuary, and just as you inquire about communion with the deceased, Guildmaster Mumuepo himself enters. By what power you know not, Mumuepo divines that it was F'lhaminn who spoke to you of the dark arts and sent you to the thaumaturges to discover more. You must find someone else among the thaumaturges who may know more.
The funeral rites for Ascilia's father, Warburton, are underway at Arrzaneth Ossuary. Based on a conversation between Mumuepo and F'lhaminn, it would seem that there is no thaumaturgical means of resurrecting the dead. But as the funeral draws to a close, you notice a familiar figure lurking among the shadows. Speak to him to see what has brought him.
Within the halls of Arrzaneth Ossuary, you come across Mumuepo and Corguevais conversing. After Corguevais retires, Mumuepo insists to you that there is no means known to the Order of resurrecting the dead, bringing you to an impasse of sorts. Contact Momodi, who always proves to be helpful in these situations.
