Whispers in the Wood
Obsolete Quest Journal Entries
"Gridanian culture holds a special place for those whom the elementals of the forest entrust a task--oft calling them the beckoned. But young Khrimm refuses to believe such nonsense. Papalymo and Yda have gone to the Oak Atrium in hopes of finding Khrimm and speaking to him. You, too, must visit the Carpenters' Guild to see about the crafting of the mask you are to wear at the purification rites."
"Zezekuta of the carpenters has shown you the mask you are to wear in the purification rite, explaining that the woodsin which clings to a soul is transferred to the mask by the power and magic of the dances. He warns of the danger of a mask breaking should the woodsin be too great for it to bear. Your conversation is interrupted by the entrance of a young girl named Fye, who is searching for Khrimm. You still bear a message from the moogle to deliver to Fye. Go to the Acorn Orchard just outside and see that she hears it."
"You find Khrimm and Fye speaking to one another in the Acorn Orchard, and overhear talk of Fye's oldest brother Dunstan and his tragic fate of being turned into a wildling. Fye claims that she is making a new mask for her brother, refusing to give up hope of cleansing him of his woodsin. Khrimm, however, claims to no longer believe in the existence of the elementals, and the conversation ends with his leaving. Go and speak to Fye, and deliver the moogle's message."
"Fye is shocked to hear the moogle's claims that the mask is not broken, having thought it to be the sole reason her brother and Khrimm's parents were turned into wildlings. She asks you to speak to the moogles again if you can, and ask if there any hope of freeing the soul of a wildling from the forest's clutches. Return to the Oak Atrium and see if there is anything Zezekuta can tell you of Fye, Khrimm, or their families."
"Arriving at the Oak Atrium, you find Papalymo and Yda speaking with Zezekuta, and learn that Dunstan and Khrimm's parents both stirred the greenwrath of the elementals in the course of battlings the Garleans. Zezekuta still holds your mask in anticipation of the purification rites, and assures you that your cleansing should post no problems. Contact Miounne yet again by linkshell, and see what she has to say."
"Miounne informs you that Brother E-Sumi-Yan of the conjurers has returned to town to oversee the purification rites, and can be found at the Greatloam Growery. He asks that all those partaking in the rites come and see him."
"At the Greatloam Growery, Brother E-Sumi-Yan seems concerned over young Fye. To aid in her wish to find a way to save a wildling, he teaches you where in the forest you man find Pearl Clover Fruits--a known favorite of the moogles, and your best chance of attracting one near enough to speak to it.
"You locate one of the Pearl Clover Fruits Brother E-Sumi-Yan spoke of, which quickly attracts the attention of a moogle. In return for the delectable, the moogle agrees to ask the elementals themselves if a wildling soul can be returned from the wood. Wander around nearby until the moogle is finished conversing with the elementals."
"You follow the sound of an axe, and at its source find Khrimm chopping at a tree in his attempt to prove that the elementals do not exist. He claims to have seen Fye's brother and his parents in the forest, and that they were not wildlings. It is this that has caused him to cease to believe in the elementals. The moogle entrusts you with yet another message for Fye--this time from the elementals. They ask that she stop wandering the forest. Return to the Greatloam Growery and see the message delivered.
"You report all to Fufucha, and have come to be regarded as one of those beckoned by the forest--a fact evidenced by the elemental's entrusting you with a message. Fufucha hurries to take word of this to the conjurers . See tom it Miounne learns of your newfound prestige, as well."
"Miounne informs you that the archers from the Gods' Quiver have visited the Caline Canopy asking after you. Visit the Quiver's Hold and see what business they have with you."
"Nonolato of the Archers' Guild directs you to enter the halls of the Quiver's Hold and speak with the commanding officers."
"You come upon Brother O-App-Pesi of the conjurers and Great Bow Lewin of the archers, and learn that it was indeed Fye's brother Dunstan who brought down the Hedge. Dunstan was once one of the lancers, but was later exiled from Gridania, and is now thought to be searching for his sister. Lewin requests that you lend your strength in hunting down Dunstan and protecting the forest. Speak with Miounne and see if she has any advice on the matter."
"Miounne has asked that you come and see her at the Carline Canopy. Make your way there to see what she wants."
