  • The Skysteel engineer appears to be seeking...something.
  • An engineer hails you near the Firmament, apparently having managed to spot your calloused hands from a distance. Between his peculiar fixation on your digits and assorted ramblings, you have sufficient information to determine that the Skysteel Manufactory is in search of one skilled in tradecraft or the like─though to what end is unclear. You will need to speak with Neillemard if you hope to learn more.
  • At the Skysteel Manufactory, the thankfully straightforward Neillemard introduces to you the project that he, along with his fellow engineers Nimie and Denys, hope to bring to fruition in the name of contributing to efforts at the Firmament. Their aim is to perfect several prototype field and tradecraft tools unearthed from the manufactory's storehouse, and they require the assistance of a person skilled in such crafts to test and help improve said tools. Given that you are such a person, you agree to help─and with no further ado receive an eminently serviceable prototype for your trouble.

You there, my good sir─if you don't mind my saying so, you have the look of one skilled with his hands. As a matter of fact...
Yes! I have seen you at the manufactory, have I not? You must possess deft fingers indeed for Lord Stephanivien to have taken such an immediate liking to you.

Yes! You are a hero of some repute, are you not? Your prowess goes beyond the handling of common tools, then!


That is well, for we at the Skysteel Manufactory are in search of like-minded and nimble-fingered individuals!


Of course, said personage would also need to be familiar with Ishgard's efforts to restore its more material legacies. Given that you are here, I trust that you are aware of the ongoing construction in the Firmament?
What will you say?
Aware? Hah. Nothing would get done around here without me. Yes, I agreed to help Lord Francel.
Better and better! We simply must have you.

But─no. It is unbecoming of me to be so forward. I will say only this─if I have struck within you some spark of interest, you would do well to speak with Neillemard.


You really ought to speak with Neillemard at the manufactory. Only if you have the inclination, naturally─but 'twould be a terrible shame for one with such practiced hands as yours not to put them to use.
Hm. You look like you know your trade. Mind if I take some measurements?
A tradesman? Why, it's a miracle! I thought we'd never get anyone to agree to help, with our representation at the Firmament being what it is.

He's a fine fellow, but how he manages to say both less and more than is desirable at any given moment is beyond me. Suffice it to say that I admire your perseverance. Now, if I might prevail upon you to wait here, I will fetch my cohorts...


Allow me to introduce Nimie and Denys─my fellow engineers at the Skysteel Manufactory and partners in this grand endeavor.


Ah, but I would wager that you have yet to be enlightened as to the nature of said endeavor. Am I right?


To put it simply─all at the manufactory, from Stephanivien to the freshest-faced of apprentices, have been seeking a means to aid in the construction of the Firmament. We have searched high and low...
Literally, he means. In the storehouse. And wouldn't you know it, we found a whole pile of tools, just sitting there with all of the junk.

Judging by the plans they were heaped on top of, they're only prototypes─but they're fine things nonetheless.


If we could improve them, turn them into the masterworks they were meant to be... Suffice it to say that any one of them might make for a notable contribution to the restoration effort. Why, we could even award them to especially dedicated skybuilders as thanks for their hard work.
To do so, however, we need the aid of one who truly knows a tradesman's tools─not only in theory, but in practice. Someone willing to aid in their trial and reforging.
What will you say?
You've come to the right
Hyur
! Or I've come to you... In any case, I'll do it. Yes.
Very well. I take it this is going to involve some sort of incredibly rare material?
Without further delay, then, I present you this prototype! Unpolished though it may be, I'm certain you will find it to be more than serviceable.
Oh, I should be quite surprised if it didn't!
For the moment, however, take this prototype. Unpolished though it may be, I'm certain you will find it to be more than serviceable.
And if the first taste has you yearning for more, come and talk to me. We have all sorts of tools awaiting the firm grip of a skilled hand!
Godsdammit, that's precisely the sort of phrasing that─never mind. Do let me know when you've finished making your inspection of the prototype.
Neillemard does try to keep the others from going on about weighty tools and firm grasps and so on. Problem is, I don't think they even realize that they're doing it.
I'm not so clever as the others, but I'm great with my hands, if you know what I mean. Give me a few moments with any tool, no matter the size, and--
Bugger, that was one of the things Neillemard told me not to say? There are so many, it's hard to keep track.
