  • The company belle has a wicked smile upon her lips...enough so to give you considerable pause before engaging the bacon-loving vixen.
  • According to the belle, the wandering dramaturge has a favor to ask. You have a sinking feeling this will not end well...if end at all.
  • It turns out the wine you bent over backwards to procure for the wandering dramaturge was only about as expensive as an afternoon in the Gold Saucer's Round Square. To apologize, Hancock─who has seemingly appeared out of nowhere─presents you with not one, not two, but three bottles of Dalmascan red he purchased from the Dalmascan resistance group, Lente's Tears. Now, you have the opportunity to replace the counterfeit bottle with which you tricked Master Gegeruju of Costa del Sol.
  • The wandering dramaturge suggests that you employ the aid of Shamani Lohmani in your latest attempt to pull the proverbial wool over Master Gegeruju's eyes.
  • Several cold stares and a rousing match of tug-of-war later, Master Gegeruju has his Dalmascan red, and your conscience is finally at ease. Now all that remains is to thank those who helped you along the way─starting with Shamani Lohmani.
  • Shamani Lohmani is ecstatic at the thought of, for once, actually drinking a bottle of wine instead of selling it to some pompous trade magnate. He suggests that your final bottle of Lea Monde go to Drest.
  • Drest accepts your gesture, and promptly retreats back to the safety of his own mind.
  • Amazingly, the wandering dramaturge offers what, in some circles, might be considered an apology for having you straddle the Three Great Continents on his behalf. The end...?

Ah, fresh off your latest adventure, I suppose you are yearning for another quest. And, it just so happens I may have something that needs...fetching.

What do you say?

Do not dare use the “F” word around me.


But of course! I live to serve!

What, “fetching”? Pah! I meant no offense!


Well, this is most certainly not how that nice young reporter led me to believe you would react. <sigh> Once you've calmed your nerves, feel free to stop by again. I'm not going anywhere.


Do you recall that wine my darling husband had you procure for him? You know, the one in the rose bottle? Well, he positively loved it. So much so, in fact, that he's become obsessed with the vintage and would like to ask of you another favor. Go on now. He's standing right yonder.
Quest Accepted

Forename! Jenomis told me of all your adventures. The Orbonne Monastery, the Necrohol of Mullonde─such fantastical-sounding locales! Just don't ask me to spell them. Ah hah hah hah!


Ah, yes. The Suhd Viandja! And what an amazing wine it was! I admit, before leaving Garlemald, I was worried the outlands' vintages would not agree with my palate, but oh, how I was wrong!


Not only was the rosé one of the best I've had during my time here, it is one of the best I've had...well, ever! I simply had to have more so...


...I went and purchased an entire crate of the stuff! Ah hah hah hah!
And I gave him quite a deal, I might add. Which was not easy, seeing as there is great demand for bottles of Suhd Viandja throughout the Three Great Continents.

I shall reserve my judgment on the verity of Hancock's “deal,” but even were the price double, it would have been more than worth it.


Fortunately, I recently sold an entire collection of my works to a little playhouse on Kogane Dori─the Mujikoza, I believe they called themselves (these Hingan words leave my tongue in knots)─and scored myself a tidy profit.

Hm? The price of a single bottle more than a house in Mist, you say? Hah! More than a birdhouse, I suppose.


Oh, you were serious. Well, then, I can inform you that is most definitely not the case. Even during shortages, I've never had to ask more than, say, twenty or thirty thousand gil a bottle. Forty if the buyer was wearing silks.


You say Master Gegeruju provided you with this misinformation, did he?


Why, the conniving devil! Well played, you lecherous Lalafell, you! I mean...that is terrible! What a terrible thing for him to do.


Wait... Was that “Dalmascan” wine we “procured” for Master Gegeruju some moons ago in exchange for one of his bottles of Suhd Viandja?
Do I...uh...want to know about this, Hancock?
Probably not, but I shall enlighten you anyway...

It sounds like you and Hancock make quite the cunning devils, Forename. Still, I do feel somewhat responsible for this whole mess...


As an apology, might I offer you a bottle of...vintage Suhd Viandja?


No, of course not. Ahem. Then, what would you say to a bottle of Dalmascan? You could exchange it with the bottle you gave this Master Gegeruju and absolve yourself of all wrongdoing and whatnot.


Ah, now you are probably wondering where one might find a bottle of genuine Dalmascan red, considering the hells you had to negotiate simply to find an empty bottle. Well that, my distrustful friend, is where Hancock comes in.

I do? Oh, yes...ahem, I do. And I just so happen to have a bottle of Dalmascan wine on my person this very moment! Three, in fact!


And why do I carry bottles of the rarest wine in Othard on my person, you ask? I...er...am not at liberty to say.


...If you must know, I acquired them from one of my acquaintances in Rabanastre... Bah! All right, all right! I purchased them from Lady Fran.
Do you recall that wine my darling husband had you procure for him? You know, the one in the rose bottle? Well, he positively loved it. So much so, in fact, that he's become obsessed with the vintage and would like to ask of you another favor. Go on now. He's standing right yonder.

Think of it this way, Forename. If you hadn't saved the world from Ultima's bane, the High Seraph would most definitely have destroyed all that wine in the monastery simply out of spite. Meaning, you're entitled to at least those three.


And, if you so desire, you can take one of those bottles back to Costa del Sol and set things right.


Though, something tells me Master Gegeruju won't take kindly to you waltzing into his manor and demanding he exchange bottles for no apparent reason... Hm... Perhaps you might enlist the aid of that vintner from Wineport. What was his name again? Shamwow...Shamon...Shamani! Shamani Lohmani!
You were duped? By a lecher? Look on the bright side, friend. It could be worse. You could have been duped by a...no... I suppose there's nothing worse than being duped by a lecher.

Wait─did you just say you have in your possession a bottle of genuine Dalmascan red? By the Twelve, wherever did you find it!?


Amazing... Simply amazing. And is it safe to assume you are here to right a past wrong─one involving a fancy bottle full of falsehoods and fabrications?


Well, I am more than willing to help you sort out this sordid mess. If I had said something back when I learned you would be trading a bottle of Valens for mere Suhd Viandja, none of us would be in this position in the first place.


I shall accompany you to Master Gegeruju's seaside manor and explain to the man that the bottle you gave him had not been stored properly, and that we have come to exchange it with one that has. He is certain to believe the claim coming from me, his most trusted supplier.

All's well that ends well, I suppose. The important thing is that we exchanged the bottles. Now, as to how this is all going to affect my future dealings with Master Gegeruju...you let me worry about that.


What's this? A second bottle of Lea Monde? For me? You know I cannot accept such a gift!


There are literally thousands more where this came from? Well, if that is the case, I suppose I can.

Thank you again for the wonderful gift. As a distributor of fine wines, rarely am I allowed the luxury of partaking in mine own supply. I shall truly enjoy this exception.


Perhaps I will even allow old Byrglaent a glass... Half a glass. Here's to hoping it will inspire his winery to even greater heights.


Hm? Is that another bottle I see there sticking its cork from your pack? Gods, those things truly are bottomless, aren't they!?


Well, as happy as I would be to take it off your hands, I believe there is another far more deserving than I. You'll find poor Drest where he always is...

Why have you come back? There is nothing for you here... There is nothing for any of us...


That bottle... Where did you─?

The scent... Home...

I'm sorry... I just... I don't deserve this.


'Twas my wife... My wife who...always saved the corks.


Do you think she'd...she'd forgive me? If I told her I wasn't coming back...


Would my brothers-in-arms? Would they allow me this...this respite...?


Maybe it is time I asked them. They'll all be here soon... Just like they are every night. But tonight, I'll have brought them something...


Thank you, friend. Thank you...
Hopefully the bottle can provide Drest with even a moment's respite.

You're back! And, my, far quicker than last time. Everything off with nary a hitch then, I presume.


That is truly, truly wonderful to hear...and I'm not simply saying that because there's been this nagging in my gut that's followed me since I asked you to fetch me some wine that fateful day.


Please accept this as a token of my gratitude. I've been told you adventuring types fet─er, collect them, as well.

Thank you, friend. The scents of home are not as frightening as I imagined they'd be...
