Journal detail hr1 08.png Objects Involved

  • Minfilia is eyeing you with a mixture of regret and desperation.
  • That they might better understand the impact of primal summonings, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn employ scholars to travel across Eorzea taking aetheric readings. These expeditions often entail visiting dangerous areas, and so each scholar is assigned an escort. Unfortunately, an adventurer charged with accompanying one such scholar was recently injured, leaving Minfilia with no other option but to ask that you serve in his stead. Hoary Boulder, who awaits you outside the solar, will brief you on the details.
  • Hoary Boulder welcomes the opportunity to work with you personally─though Coultenet observes that your duties will take you in different directions. Your charge awaits you at Camp Tranquil in the South Shroud. Make your way into the forest and see your mission done.
  • Your late arrival does little to endear you to the scholar, who curtly instructs you to follow him to Issom–Har without further delay.
  • Having found a suitable location, the scholar begins to calibrate his instruments. Leave him to his work and keep watch for wild beasts.
  • A brief moment of action provides a welcome distraction from an otherwise uneventful duty. Speak with the scholar to see if he has finished taking measurements.
  • Rather than express gratitude for your protection, the scholar requests that you make a more concerted effort to slay your assailants quietly. Resist the urge to remind him who he is talking to, and accompany the vile ingrate to Snakemolt so that he might continue his mission.
  • The scholar wastes no time preparing to take measurements, and orders you to stand watch as before.
  • You dispatch your assailants with practiced efficiency. With luck, the scholar will have no complaints this time.
  • Suddenly disconcerted by the atmosphere in Snakemolt, the scholar hurriedly departs for Rootslake, where the final survey site awaits. Follow him and complete your mission.
  • His words terse and his mood tense, the scholar motions for you to stand guard once more.
  • The attack comes as little surprise, as does your victory. Inform the scholar that all is well.
  • Apparently unconvinced by your assertion that all is well, the scholar flees the lingering stench of slaughter for the relative safety of Camp Tranquil.
  • After a cursory analysis, the scholar concludes that there has been a widespread decrease in ambient aether concentrations following the Calamity. However, as his results are far from conclusive, he deems it necessary to take further measurements─accompanied, presumably, by you...

I wonder, do you perchance recall the commitment I made to furnish Hoary Boulder with a capable adventurer? Well, I am sorry to say that I have as yet been unable to do so. Now, I realize that you are rather more than a “capable adventurer,” and that escort duty is frankly beneath a man of your talents...but I have no one else to turn to at present. Might you be willing to forgo rest and assist us in this matter?

Generous to a fault. I thank you, Forename.

Now, it seems only fair that I explain the import of the task in question... For some time, our order has employed a handful of scholars to travel around Eorzea taking aetheric readings that we might better understand the impact of primal summonings.

Naturally, it behooves us to ensure our employees' safety, and so we ask the adventurers in our service to serve as escorts.

Hoary Boulder and Coultenet were to act as two such escorts, as was a third adventurer...

Alas, due to injury, said adventurer is not presently fit for duty─hence my need to impose upon your goodwill.

You truly are a pillar of strength, Forename.

Hoary Boulder will share with you the details of your task. He should be waiting for you outside. Be safe.
Quest Accepted

Ah, Forename! Is it true that you agreed to lend us a hand?

Huzzah! What did I tell you, Coultenet? Our misfortune is become a blessing─an opportunity to serve alongside the Warrior of Light himself!
Need I remind you that we have three scholars to escort, each of whom will take a different route?
True, true─but our mission is the same! Separated by malms we may be, but in spirit we shall be together!

If such thoughts bring you joy, you are welcome to think them.

To more practical concerns─Forename, we would have you attend to the scholar charged with surveying the South Shroud.

He is waiting at Camp Tranquil as we speak. All you need do is follow the man─he will determine the most appropriate locations to take his readings.

In spirit, Forename─in spirit, we shall be together every step of the way!
I had no idea that you would be assisting us personally, Forename! My sincerest apologies for dragging you into our affairs.

At last, the Scions' man deigns to grace me with his presence. A pity that we have no time for pleasantries.

Our first destination is Issom–Har. Come─we are late enough as it is.

Yes, this location should suffice. Once I finish calibrating my instruments, I will require but a moment to take the necessary measurements.

I trust I need not explain that my work can suffer no interruptions? Then please─stand at an appropriate distance and keep watch for wild beasts.
You wish me to deliver my report to your masters in a timely fashion, yes? Then stand aside and let me work.

I see we have both completed our respective tasks. A satisfactory outcome. Though, if I could make one suggestion: you might try to dispatch your foes more quietly in future. I do not like to pick fault, but I really must be allowed to concentrate.

Now then, Snakemolt awaits. Shall we?
Right, yes. As before, I would ask that you keep an eye out for dangerous beasts as I work.
Pray see to your duty, as I must to mine.

Fascinating. These readings are not at all what I expected...

...Though perhaps that should come as no surprise. I am not given to superstition, but there is a queer, almost blasphemous air hereabouts. Let us quit this place and return to Rootslake. We have one more site to survey.
As before, my guardian. Pray leave me to my task and ensure our safety.
Hm? No, I have not yet finished. Return to your watch.

This data should prove invaluable to─ <sniff> <sniff> Ye gods, what is that stench? Did you slaughter a creep of adamantoises while my back was turned!?

Quickly now, to Camp Tranquil! I will not have my clothing reeking of blood and offal!

Hm. You chose to paddle in the ichor awhile longer, I take it... No matter─I took advantage of my unexpected privacy and performed a cursory analysis of my data.

It would appear that there has been a measurable decrease in Eorzea's ambient aether concentrations since the Calamity...

However, this data is far from conclusive. We must take additional measurements to confirm my assessment.
