  • Biggs seems eager to forge further into the machine.
  • On speaking with Biggs and Wedge, you learn that the Illuminati have taken exception to your previous incursion into their territory, going so far as to call for your death. Unfortunately, you have no choice but to invade their fortress again for the good of the realm. Steel yourself to enter the colossus.
※The Cuff of the Father can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have felled the Illuminati forces that sought to block your path. Leave them and the area behind you.
  • On your way out of the colossus, you encounter Cid, Mide, and Roundrox, who have taken the opportunity to survey the interior. As you look on, the treasure hunter searches through the belongings of a fallen goblin, seemingly in vain. When Cid subsequently asks what she is looking for, she tells him that her prize is the Enigma Codex...just as the goblin machinist suggested during your encounter with Quickthinx Allthoughts. The tome, written some hundred years past, apparently holds the plans for a variety of technological wonders. Chief among them is the invention known as “Alexander”─a walking citadel designed to serve as a bastion of reason and logic. Plainly, it is this ideal that gave form to the Illuminati's primal. Return to Biggs, and relate all that you have learned.
  • Biggs listens intently as you recount your tale. Though plainly impressed by the idea of a walking fortress, he bemoans the Illuminati's reckless approach to realizing the design. Bastion of reason and logic or not, it is a primal, and must be destroyed.

Ah, Forename! Ready to have another go at finding the giant's core?


Wedge, could you─ Oi, Wedge! Stop listening to that bloody linkpearl! We barged through the Illuminati's front door─they know we've broken their code.
But I've just this moment intercepted a new communication! If you'll give me a moment to... There! It says... Oh. “Death to uplanders... Death to uplanders...” Ahem. I-I think we may have started a war...

Backrix is still helping me to intercept Illuminati communications.


He really is a natural when it comes to codes! Truly, these goblins never cease to amaze me!

My, but Roundrox has a lot of treasures! Not many are of much use, but they're all lovely in their own right.


She has a fine eye... Speaking of which, do you recall me mentioning that she had described Quickthinx's face, and how I assumed she must mean his mask? Well, the more I think about what she said, the more I think she really did mean his face. But how could she possibly tell?
If the Illuminati want a war, it seems only fair that we bring their base to its knees. We need to find the giant's core and quick!

Pshkohhh... Roundrox likes Mide. Trading tongueflaps is much fun!


Look, look─this whirlycog Roundrox finds sixty-three yalms north and west! And that one was only ten yalms from Arkhitekton!


Pshkohhh... Shiny junk and sparkly rocks,♪

Bittybobs and whirlycogs.♪

This Enigma Codex sounds amazing. A walking citadel's one thing, but a self-sustaining, walking citadel...? Genius! It's just a pity the Illuminati had to go and make a bleedin' primal out of it.


From what I understand, this “Alexander” was active for no more than a few seconds─that's seconds─and it nigh drained the hinterlands of aether. Imagine what it'd do if it wandered the whole bleedin' world...


I don't think Roundrox realizes how much danger we're in here. Too busy hunting for new treasures. Probably for the best, though, eh?
Quest Completed

If my ears seem red, it's because Y'shtola just called. Dear me...I didn't think she knew such language! I gather Matoya may not be the easiest of taskmasters.

...Not that I don't sympathize, of course. I wonder what she'd say if she had to work under the chief...?
I think Roundrox's pile of treasures may have grown a touch. Not that that's any surprise─she goes hunting whenever she has a spare moment. Heh. A girl after my own heart.

Pssshkoh... Shiny junk and sparkly rocks,♪ Bittybobs and whirlycogs.♪


Sometimes Backrix is coming with Roundrox for junk hunting.


Uplander will come next time, too?
