Part 53: Extra: Chapter 3 Sidequests (2): Books, books, books.

You are watching: Trails in the sky temp librarian plus

Extra: Chapter 3 Sidequests (2): Books, books, books.Before we head into Chapter 4, we have some unfinished business to take care of. If you recall, right before we broke into Leiston Fortress, I mentioned that there was some sidequests left to take care of that I was postponing until the end of the chapter for pacing reasons. We"re going to do them now, although there aren"t that many so this"ll be a little shorter then usual.
*
This is actually a very special update: It"s the very last sidequest update of the game
*
. Chapter 4 doesn"t have sidequests in the conventional sense, so it won"t have any such updates.
*
We saw your request on the bulletin board.Constance:
Oh... You"re very late. I didn"t think you were going to show. Sorry... We got wrapped up in other business.Constance: Well, shall we get started, then?I don"t see why not, you"ve got the whole update! That"s fine. This is about hiring the temp librarian, right?Constance: Yes, that"s right. It"s turned out to be much more of an ordeal than expected. What kind of ordeal?Constance: I"ll explain that in a moment. Beforehand, though, I"ve a matter that I would like you to help settle. Consider it a favor, if you will. What kind of are you referring to?Constance: The Archives loaned out some books out to various Central Factory departments... Sometimes they keep them past the due date and don"t pay the fees. First, I"d like you to get our books back.We"re in the middle of a massive political upheaval and we"re playing librarians?...Sure, why not? What? That"s simple. Where do we need to go?Constance: Let"s see... They should be in the third floor Design Room, and the fourth floor Lab and Clinic. Third floor Design Room, fourth floor Lab and Clinic... Got it. ...Is that everything?Constance: Yes. Please come back once you have them. Okay, we will. We"ll start immediately.
*
We"re going to get a lot of books this update. I"ll put them all at the end of the update.
*
This is just after Agate returned from the brink of death, so we ought to give Miriam a visit.Miriam:
I told him...! Hey, I"m right here, Doc. I just wanted to get out and stretch my legs a little.
*
...And work out. A little. Strech your legs...work out...? Insane, Agate. You"re insane!Miriam:
I give up. Well, you bracers are supposed to know your own limits. Do what you like. Just... be careful. I"ll do what I can to stay out of your clinic, Doc. Thanks for everything.
*
Here"s where we find the translation for all of Antoine"s talks.
*
Reading Tommorow"s Cooking teaches you the recipe for Bouillabaisse Plus, which restores 600HP and 30CP, which is pretty great. As with every good recipe, it uses some rare ingredients, but not so rare you"ll never cook it.
*
Ha ha... We brought them for you.Handed over Septium Optic Annals.
Handed over Tomorrow"s Cooking.Handed over Kitty-Talk for Dummies.All of the books have been returned!Quest completed!
*
Constance:
We have all of the books again. I thank you for your assistance. Ha ha... It was no big deal.We had a walkthrough, after all.
*
We didn"t have any issues.Constance:
That"s good to hear. In that case, perhaps I should go ahead and ask you for help with my favorite type of work. Oh, that"s right. You mentioned having some significant problems, somewhere along the line. So, what kind of work is it?Constance: Just like before, we need some overdue materials returned. The book in question is called,
*
We"ll make a note of that. Right... Erbe... Wood...pecker. So it"s a book on birds, right? Probably, yeah. The Erbe Woodpecker is a pretty famous bird. Ahhh, I see. So, do you have any clues for us?Constance:
Yes, as a matter of fact. ...Take a look at this. Okay, I wrote that down... ...but what the heck is it?Constance: It was written on a card that was taken from the book. I imagine that it"s some kind of hint as to its whereabouts. A hint of bad poetry maybe... So...it was only borrowed because someone with way too much time on their hands wanted to hide it somewhere?Constance: Evidently so. It"s the sort of trick that researchers used to play on each other long ago. I have no idea what would possess someone to hide a book, of all things. But we certainly have our fair share of unusual characters. It"s not surprising that any of them might follow such a bizarre custom.
*
Ha...ha ha... Why"s everyone looking at me?Don"t worry, you"re unusual in a good way
*
Constance:
Anyway, I leave this matter in your capable hands. Please, bring the book back. H-hey! Hold on a second. Is this the only lead we have?Constance: I"m afraid so. But the guild sent you, so I have every confidence in your ability. ... Well, that"s just...awesome. ...Understood. It will be difficult work, but we will do all that we can.Constance: You may have to search every nook and cranny in Zeiss, but I"m sure you"ll find it. I"ll be waiting here. When you do find it, please bring it back to me. *sigh*... Let"s get this show on the road, then.Constance: Ha ha... I look forward to seeing you again.I think it"s pretty obvious. Do you guys know where it is?...I kid, I kid. Mountain Village Pond is actually pretty straightforward when you think about it, but seriously, the internet exists. Why would you think about it?
*
*
Our goal is the hot springs in Elmo Village. While you"re here, you might as well take a bath so you can obliterate the Special Ops at Leiston (like I did!)
*
Yep! You betcha! We brought you your book. Please take a look to be certain.Handed over The Erbe Woodpecker.
Quest completed!Constance: Oh, my. This is, indeed, the right book. Thank you for finding it. Ha ha. Like there was ever any doubt.Constance: To be honest, I thought it was going to be a wild goose chase. I"m quite impressed that you actually managed to find it. Now I know I can leave the rest of the work in your hands. Right...wait, what?! ...What ?Booo, Librarian, boo. No more books. There"s more?Constance: Traditionally, the researchers would hide three books. This leaves us with two still yet to be found. ...Did I not tell you? This is most definitely the first I"ve heard of it.Constance: Hmm... How odd.Ugh, you"re just the worst Constance (good news Agate.)Constance: But you"re already aboard the ship, so to speak. So, I hope I can count on your full support until the end. Well, I guess so...but... You mean we have to deal with another unhinged person"s idea of a game? Speaking of which, it"s just like back in Ruan.Constance: No need to worry. The next book"s hint has no words.That might just be worse. Err, really?Constance: The proof is in the pudding, as the saying goes. See for yourself.
*
...You"ve gotta be kidding. No comments or anything...
*
...Dots and an X? Hmmm... Maybe the X is supposed to point where the book is?Constance:
The name of the book in question is Hertz"s...Ad...ven...ture...2. Got it.
*
SC being confirmed for release kind of ruins it, but back when it was in translation limbo this was unintentionally pretty funny.Constance:
Well, I hope this gets you fired up to find it.
*
Lovely... Another brain-teaser to figure out. I take back what I said about the stupid poetry. I"d MUCH rather do that. Oh, well. Either way, we"d still be stuck trying to puzzle it out.Constance:
Well, best of luck. I"ll be waiting here, as always. All right... We"ll be off, then. And luck was apparently on our side...This one"s tougher.
*
In the Tratt Plains, there"s a zone that has nothing but a treasure chest, as well as one large pillar surrounded by four smaller pillars. If you remember it exists, the hint is pretty obvious, otherwise...
*
*
Constance:
Did you find the book, by any chance? Heh heh... Indeed we have! Again, please check it over, just to be certain.Handed over Hertz"s Adventure (2).Quest completed!Constance: Yes, this is the genuine article. And that leaves us with just one left. *sigh*... I need a break. What kind of book are we chasing down this time anyway?Constance: Ha ha... I"ll spare you the teasing this time. The last one is entitled, <31 Cypress Trees.> And here"s its card. It"s got more of that unusual writing on it. Oh, man. More of this gibberish. I think I"m actually starting to get used to these. Another riddle...
*
Yeah, I guess so.Constance:
Is this your specialty or something? Well...your task is the same as before. May Aidios herself speed you on your way to success. Okay, we"re going. Pardon us....Yeah don"t look at me. I have no goddamn clue either.The internet man says...
*
The Sanktheim Gate!
*
Woohoo! Found it! That"s the last one... Now we can finally finish up our work for the librarian. You ain"t kidding. ...Huh? What"s wrong? There"s a card stuck in the book. ...Aaaand something"s written on it.
I like how it acknowledges how any random schmuck could stumble upon this. I like to imagine that all random items found in barrels and crates and dressers in JRPGS are actually the end-game of a giant riddle game, tragically cut short. ...That"s it. So it was all one big practical joke? Yeah, I guess so... Have you looked in the package? Oh, right... Let"s see what we can see...Found Impede 3. Heh heh... Jackpot. I think we should check in with the client, for the time being.
*
Like I mentioned back before we went to Leiston, Estelle gets the Impede 3, learning Aero Storm
. I"ll show it off soon.
*
Constance:
Perchance, have you...? Yep. We have the last book. Just to be sure, please take a look at it.Handed over 31 Cypress Trees.Quest completed!Constance: Yes, this is definitely it. I"m impressed. You actually found all three books. Heh heh... It just took some perseverance and patience. Oh, yeah... That"s not all we found. It was right in the same spot as the book...Handed over the note and quartz left behind by the thief.Constance: Hmmm... Perhaps this is a clue as to his motivations. Still, regardless of the reason, you"ve done a great deal for me. You can keep the quartz for yourselves. In return for my having taken up so much of your time. Thank you. So, is that all that you need us to do?Constance: Yes. That"s the lot. Whew... That"s a relief. I was afraid you were going to say you still had more work for us.
*
Hee hee... No joke.Constance:
You"ve worked so hard that there"s really nothing left. Ha ha... I"m very grateful for your help. Now I can just relax for the time being... What...?Constance: Oh, it"s nothing.
