  • Sergeant Cracked Fist laments the low morale of the troops on the front lines. Believing that the presence of a true hero would go a long way to lift the spirits of the garrison, he asks that you report to General Raubahn at the Ceruleum Processing Plant and offer your services.
  • Raubahn bids you rally the garrison at the Ceruleum Processing Plant. Make your way around the plant and /psych up the green recruits whose resolve appears to be failing.
  • Your visceral gesticulations have helped the recruits steel themselves for the battle to come. Now go to Lieutenant Edelstein and /psych him up as you did the recruits.
  • Lieutenant Edelstein admits that the fire of his resolve had grown dim, and thanks you for making it rage anew. With both the Bull of Ala Mhigo and your good self present, the entire garrison is fairly ablaze with determination.

<Clickable(<If(GreaterThan(PlayerParameter(52),0))><Player's Grand Company Rank>)/> Surname. I mentioned that I was hoping you might raise the flagging spirits of the men and women of our garrison.

Worry not, it is no unnecessarily laborious task that we ask of you. The mere presence of a hero such as you walking in their midst would no doubt serve to restore in them a measure of morale.


And so I ask of you this: make your way to the Ceruleum Processing Plant, and report to General Raubahn once you have arrived. And godsspeed, <Clickable(<If(GreaterThan(PlayerParameter(52),0))><Player's Grand Company Rank>)/> Surname─our troops are counting on you.


General Raubahn and his men will be most heartened to welcome a true hero to the front lines─I am most certain of it. Godsspeed, <Clickable(<If(GreaterThan(PlayerParameter(52),0))><Player's Grand Company Rank>)/> Surname.
Well, if it isn't the hero who brought down the praefectus! It's good to have you with us, friend.

As you can see, the mood about the camp here is grim at best. I was hoping that your presence alone might serve to raise spirits some.


Unfortunately, it would seem that many are too preoccupied wallowing in fear and self-pity that they have yet to even notice you have arrived.


Might I ask you to make the rounds and share a few words of encouragement to those men and women whose spirit falters? I had a mind to do it myself, but I am quite certain it would carry more weight coming from you.
Once you have seen to the others, go and do the same for Edelstein. No matter what he may claim, the lieutenant would also be better for a bit of rousing. Trust me, I know.
About the camp, there are green recruits whose resolve falters. Find them, Forename, and rekindle their fighting spirit the way only a hero can.
Yes, sir... Right away, sir... <sigh>

Uwaaaaaah! The Garleans are not near as frightening as you! I'd sooner face a vanguard while naked as my nameday!


Er...thank you. I think. Whatever that was, it momentarily distracted me from my woes. <sigh>
Ah, the oft-rumored hero... Doubtless you will single-handedly save us all...

Your stirring gesticulation has reawakened me to my purpose! Hero or no, I will fight tooth and nail to protect the realm!


I should be honored to meet a hero, but I just don't have the will to care...
I–I'm fine, t–truly! N–Nothing to w–worry about! Just a m–mild case of b–battlefield nerves!

YAAAAAARGH!!! I BREAK MY FAST ON GARLEANS! AND RIGHT NOW, I'M VERY HUNGRY!


<gasp> Th–The hero of Cape Westwind! D–Don't look at me! G–Gods, don't look at meeeeee!
You would stoke my fighting spirit as you did our recruits'? Hah hah! A kind offer, but hardly necessary. I assure you, the fire in my heart rages as strongly as it ever has.

By Rhalgr... Without my realizing it, the fire of my resolve had grown dim. But thanks to you, it burns red-hot once more! If needs be, I shall lay down my life to secure victory for Eorzea!


Would that we had the time to get better acquainted, but right now we must focus on the operation. Should we fail, our lives─if indeed we still live─shall never be the same again.
