Objective Map Notes


Approaching Snargle Goldclaw in Arborstone
Snargle Goldclaw: Oh. Commander. I did not expect our paths to cross in such a forsaken place.
Snargle Goldclaw: I've resigned myself to banishment from the literary community.
Snargle Goldclaw: This is truly the nadir of my great career. Perhaps... there is no longer a place for my bold, avant-garde narratives.
Speaking with Snargle Goldclaw
My apologies, Commander, but you will find that today I am not the usual world-class conversationalist one expects from Snargle Goldclaw. I find that I am...possessed of a sort of melancholy.
Talk collection option.png How can I help Snargle? (Starts the collection)
Snargle Goldclaw: Just leave me to wallow in my misfortune.
Snargle Goldclaw: Did you know there's another literary auteur in the ruins? A "serious author" who writes "serious literature."
Snargle Goldclaw: Please. What has she done that I have not?
Snargle Goldclaw: Can you believe she suggested I "take inspiration from other artists." Me? Like some amateur?
Snargle Goldclaw: If you want to help me, then go find some of these "inspirations" that Ruki recommended.
Snargle Goldclaw: Then I can get her off my back and fade into obscurity in peace.
Talk collection option.png Remind me of the things that Ruki recommended you study... (Opens the achievement page)
Talk more option tango.png Have you gotten to tour the forest since arriving?
Snargle Goldclaw: I have—and I must admit it is a great disappointment. I'd been led to expect it would be petrified!
Snargle Goldclaw: I suppose it's better that it's a thriving ecosystem once again...
Snargle Goldclaw: But certainly the sight of so many ancient trees hardened to shafts of stone, thrusting into the sky above...
Snargle Goldclaw: Well, that would have been uniquely arresting, don't you agree?
Talk end option tango.png Okay, we'll talk later Snargle.
Speaking to Mamoru
So you're the outsider who's got everyone all worked up into a tizzy? There something I can do for you?
Talk more option tango.png Ah, yes, I was hoping to procure a bow, for a friend...'
I'm afraid it's not my call. You'd need Saya to put in the order.
Talk more option tango.png Do you think Saya would do it?
She might, but I'm afraid she's quite busy. She's having some trouble with one of the students... Tateo. The fledgling has a bright future, but they are much too eager to rush into it.
Talk more option tango.png What kind of trouble?
The fledgling ran away, and Saya's gone to look for them. I can point you in the general direction they went.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see what I can do.
Talk more option tango.png Yes. About that request I made, for the bow... (after the above dialogue)
I don't know what to tell you. Saya is still gone, and only she can make the call.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see what I can do.
Talk more option tango.png I'm glad we were able to help Tateo. (after completing the event)
Yes. Thankfully we found them before they were hurt too badly. Saya notified our bowyers that they should start work on your bow. They should deliver it to your friend shortly—if they haven't already.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png I'll leave you be.
Speaking to the Distressed Kid
Can you help me find my toys? They disappeared, and I really miss them!
Talk more option tango.png You're not looking for a toy bell, are you?
Nope! My toy bell's still here. It's pretty, but boring. I don't play with it much anymore.
Talk more option tango.png I have a friend who really wants one. Could I have it?
Ummm, sure. But you gotta help me find my other toys first, okay? If you do, I'll ask my mom to send it to your friend.
Talk back option tango.png So... What's going on with your toys?
Talk end option tango.png Got it.
Talk more option tango.png Sure. What are you missing? (if event is currently active; see Help find and return the lost toys to the children)
Talk end option tango.png I'm sorry, I can't right now.
Speaking to Lady Kanda
If our customers see the place like this... You! P-please, can you help me track down those ruffians? Before the tea service starts!
Talk more option tango.png One of my friends would like to buy some tea. And a teapot.
(If you have not completed the event)
All the way in Echovald, huh? We don't normally deliver...but I suppose I could figure something out, if you're willing to pay the price.
Talk give option tango.png Okay, fine. (Pay 5 gold)
Talk more option tango.png That seems real steep.
Well, the price is the price. I work hard to get my...contacts in working order. The blends we serve are rare, special. Expensive. And I need to pay my rent, you know.
Talk end option tango.png Definitely sounds...peculiar. I should keep an eye on this.
(If you have completed the event)
Of course. After the way you helped earlier, it's the least I can do. I'll be sure to send over the...good blends. The real good blends.
... Please don't tell anyone about the gangs.
Talk end option tango.png
Talk more option tango.png Didn't I help you earlier? (if you have completed Recover tea crates from the Jade Brotherhood)
Thank you for your assistance. The Brotherhood, they're...a nefarious bunch.
Talk more option tango.png Tell me more. (see below)
Talk end option tango.png Consider doing business with someone more reputable next time, okay?
Talk more option tango.png What else can you tell me?
I serve only the finest brews, sourced from all over! Shing Jea, Echovald. A few...exotic blends.
Talk more option tango.png Where do you get your tea from?
I, well... I have sources that provide me with my best teas. That's all you need to know.
Talk more option tango.png I have a few more questions. (returns to previous options)
Talk end option tango.png I need to take off.
Talk more option tango.png Who comes to this place, anyway? Seems a bit bougie.
Only the upper crust of New Kaineng can afford a service at the Red Duck! The empress herself has vetted us as the best establishment to get a traditional cup of bitter green.
Talk more option tango.png What else can you tell me? (returns to previous options)
Talk more option tango.png I need to take off.
Talk end option tango.png Okay, I've got to run.
Talk more option tango.png What's going on here? (if Recover tea crates from the Jade Brotherhood is active)
The Brotherhood took all my tea, and our service is about to start... Please, I can't leave the customers unattended. Can you recover the crates for me?
Talk end option tango.png Sure, I'll give you a hand.
Talk end option tango.png I'm good, actually.
Talk end option tango.png I have somewhere to be
Speaking to Snargle after completing the above
Snargle Goldclaw: Commander. I must admit, some of these items you've collected are quite fascinating.
Snargle Goldclaw: Canthan art intrigues me. So much is left implied...
Snargle Goldclaw: You needn't go out of your way to find more. But should you happen upon them, I would not object.
I appreciate your help with my predicament, Commander.
Talk more option tango.png Have you gotten to tour the forest since arriving? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png Have you sampled any local food?
Snargle Goldclaw: And how!
Snargle Goldclaw: Commander, if you have not had the chance yet, you simply must track down a restaurant with pufferfish on the menu.
Snargle Goldclaw: It is incredibly toxic if not prepared just so, but it's also a powerful aphrodisiac...
Snargle Goldclaw: I don't know if it's something in the content of the meat or quite simply the thrill of still being alive after...
Snargle Goldclaw: But I'm happy to report—The stories are true! I've been ending every night with a plate of it.
Snargle Goldclaw: And my ideas have never come more easily.
Talk more option tango.png Have you met any of our new friends?
Snargle Goldclaw: I have... And dear Commander, you've been holding out on me.
Snargle Goldclaw: I had the pleasure of acquainting myself with your friend Detective Rama, and...
Snargle Goldclaw: That man has the face of a young and exceptionally virile god!
Snargle Goldclaw: I inquired as to whether he might consider posing for the cover of my next novel...
Snargle Goldclaw: And do you know what he said to me? "I'd rather eat day-old sushi while sand crabs attach themselves to my—"
Snargle Goldclaw: Well, you can imagine how it ended. I know I have.
Talk end option tango.png I'll keep looking.
Speaking to Speaker Eunjoo
Oh, sorry—I'm sort of in the middle of something.
Talk more option tango.png You Speakers collect all sorts of artifacts, right? Any I can have?
(if event has not been completed)
(if event has been completed)
Oh. I mean... You did help us out of that pickle. Here, I have this charm from way back. Never got it to do anything, so why not.
Talk end option tango.png Mysterious charm will do fine. Thanks!
Talk more option tango.png Are you planning to summon more creatures?
Talk end option tango.png Okay, sorry.
Speaking to the Desperate Painter
Hey, you! Do you want to buy a painting? Empress Ihn. If you don't look too closely, it looks just like the official ones
Talk more option tango.png Okay, sure. How much?
For a piece of art this fine...? 5 silver.
Talk merchant tango.png Deal. Bootlegs at bootleg prices.
Talk end option tango.png Cheap, but not cheap enough.
Talk end option tango.png Uh, I'll pass.
Speaking to the Mysterious Warden
The Warden stares at you silently, making neither friendly gestures or aggressive ones. You sense it reacting to your presence on some level, but not much beyond that.
Talk more option tango.png The tree looks pretty happy right now, huh?
The Warden stays silent. But there is contentment there, you feel.
Talk collection option.png So. A friend of mine is looking to study beautiful things...
Without turning its gaze from you, the Warden reaches up and plucks a flower off of the blooming tree. Snargle will appreciate this.
(if event has not been completed)
(if event has been completed)
Talk end option tango.png Whoa... Thanks!
Talk end option tango.png Yep. Happy.
Talk more option tango.png Hello? Can you speak?
The Warden stares at you but says nothing. You get the feeling it understands, but whether it can't speak or chooses not to, you're not certain.
Talk end option tango.png Okay... Bye...
Talk end option tango.png Okay... Bye...'
Speaking to Snargle Goldclaw
Snargle Goldclaw: Ah, thank you for acquiring new inspirational materials.
Snargle Goldclaw: I'm beginning to see the value in witnessing the growth of a character over the course of a story.
Snargle Goldclaw: Our characters have lives of their own, and though we may wish them to remain forever etched at their most idiosyncratic...
Snargle Goldclaw: If we truly love them, then we'll set them free, nurturing them to blossom in unexpected ways.
Snargle Goldclaw: I know Duke Daren's always been a source of levity for my readers, but now I hunger to truly know him as a person.
Snargle Goldclaw: I am percolating fresh ideas for my story.
I appreciate your help with my predicament, Commander.
Talk more option tango.png Have you gotten to tour the forest since arriving? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png Have you sampled any local food? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png Have you met any of our new friends? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png How has Cantha been receiving your work?
Snargle Goldclaw: On the whole, they have eaten it up, as I knew they would. However...
Snargle Goldclaw: I am having a hard time reaching a specific audience... The tengu of this area are particularly resistant to my work.
Snargle Goldclaw: I've already tried giving away free copies to influential community members.
Snargle Goldclaw: But I was told at least one of them had already been used in the ablution of guano.
Snargle Goldclaw: Perhaps a story penned just to their tastes? What titillates a tengu? I simply must know...
Talk more option tango.png Have you seen any jade tech?
Snargle Goldclaw: Oh, yes. In fact, I accepted an invitation to share a few bottles of soju with some enthusiastic fans who worked for...
Snargle Goldclaw: Dunlai? Zoolai? Anyway, I shared a few ideas for how they might utilize jade tech to accentuate the experiences of the flesh.
Snargle Goldclaw: And wouldn't you know it, a couple of them had a pet project of their own in that vein!
Snargle Goldclaw: We ended up back at their apartment, where I was allowed a sneak preview. Commander, you must track one down when it comes to market. You're so tense. It would do you good.
Talk end option tango.png I'll keep looking.
Speaking to Sun-Hi
Like moths caught in flames...
Talk more option tango.png Um. Excuse me, are you Sun-Hi? You sell incense?
Incense...yes... Incense calms the soul. I use it to calm many souls...that have been twisted.
Talk more option tango.png I'm looking to buy some? For a friend.
(if the achievements The Haunted Altar, Court, and Perch have not been completed)
I need it all to quell the spirits. They are bound to objects: a Ministry of Purity mask; a long forgotten axe; a lost bow. If we could free them, I could spare the incense.
Talk end option tango.png An ancient axe, bow, and mask, huh...
(if the achievements have been completed)
You have done so much to bring the spirits of the forest to rest... Purists... Kurzicks... Tengu... All passed on now. You may have the incense. I hope it brings your friend the same peace.
Talk end option tango.png He could certainly stand to have his restless spirit tamed a bit...
Talk more option tango.png Are you a Speaker?
No. Not anymore. Not for a long time. They lost their way when the Wardens came in.
Talk more option tango.png Okay, well. Rumor has it you've got incense? (see above)
Talk end option tango.png I see.
Talk end option tango.png Un. I'll leave you be.
Speaking to Special Agent Teng
(Agent Teng smiles knowingly.)
Talk more option tango.png Odd question, but any chance you collect books?
Ah, yes. I was informed you're looking for a copy of Ja-Wen's masterpiece. Don't worry, I know. Very hard to obtain. But MinTel can pull a few strings for you. As we have before.
Talk more option tango.png Right. So...can I have it?
(if the event has not been completed)
(if the event has been completed)
I think you'll find that we've already sent a copy to your friend. Anonymously, of course. Remember: Our reach is far, Commander. But we always repay those who help us.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks, I think.
Talk end option tango.png I'm busy at the moment.
Speaking to Bonnie Kunderah
Bonnie Kunderah: Oh, hey, you're like, the commander, right?
So, are you here for the book signing, or...?
Talk more option tango.png You remember me?
Bonnie Kunderah: I know we didn't talk a lot back in the Eye of the Whatever, but thanks for listening to me when I had to...scream a little.
Bonnie Kunderah: My life's been so much better since I left Snargle. He was REALLY toxic. Like, so toxic.
Talk more option tango.png What have you been up to?
Bonnie Kunderah: I finally took a wiring class at Divinity Community College. It was so boring; we had to read like...really old stuff.
Bonnie Kunderah: But I started working on a novel. You know, something really personal to me. I wrote day and night.
Bonnie Kunderah: It took months. Rewrote it, like, over and over. And finally, it was like I had a little piece of me in those pages.
Bonnie Kunderah: I knew Snargle's publisher, Kippo, so I took my manuscript to him. Six hundred and forty-three pages.
Bonnie Kunderah: He threw it in the trash but said I had "potentially marketable writing." And that's how I got the gig for SUPER ADVENTURE BOX.
Talk more option tango.png How was writing "SUPER ADVENTURE BOX: THE OFFICIAL NOVEL"?
Bonnie Kunderah: It was a dream, honestly. It's such a cool world. It's like...virtual...but reality. And you jump around.
Bonnie Kunderah: They said my first draft was "too dark." They were probably right.
Bonnie Kunderah: That's just my style, I guess.
Talk more option tango.png What's next for Bonnie Kunderah?
Bonnie Kunderah: ...I really wish people would stop asking me that.
Talk end option tango.png Nice seeing you, Bonnie.
Approaching Snargle
Snargle Goldclaw: Kippo, I came to Echovald on "mandatory sabbatical." As you asked.
Kippo: I hear you've been hobnobbing and GIVING AWAY copies of your book when you're s'posed to be finishing your new one!
Kippo: Y'now, the "Celestial Bodies" manuscript that was due a year ago!
Snargle Goldclaw: I've been busy developing my craft. Ruki thinks my writing's improved by leaps and bounds.
Kippo: I don't give a dolyak's steaming, fetid turd about this Ruki or what he's teaching you.
Snargle Goldclaw: She's been profoundly insightful.
Kippo: Well, let me insight somethin' for ya!
Kippo: Either you start finishing your damn book so we can push it out to market, or you're fired.
Snargle Goldclaw: (gasp) You don't mean that.
Kippo: Oh, I mean it, Goldclaw. I've been puttin' up with your delusions of artistic competency for too long.
Kippo: Get it together, or take a hike!
Speaking to Snargle Goldclaw
Snargle Goldclaw: Oh Commander, what am I to do?
Snargle Goldclaw: My time in Arborstone's been quite enriching. But Kippo wants a story immediately.
Snargle Goldclaw: Should I subsume myself to the fascism of the deadline?
Snargle Goldclaw: Or do I trust that time will allow my story to flourish?
Snargle Goldclaw: But then...who would publish it? It is truly a dilemma...
Snargle Goldclaw: In a certain light, this place is much like the Eye of the North. Desolate and worn, a relic of a bygone era.
I appreciate your help with my predicament, Commander.
Talk more option tango.png Have you gotten to tour the forest since arriving? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png Have you sampled any local food? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png Have you met any of our new friends? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png How has Cantha been receiving your work? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png Have you seen any jade tech? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png Bonnie seems to be doing well
Snargle Goldclaw: I had some free time at an event earlier—it did not have quite the attendance we had predicted...
Snargle Goldclaw: And I picked Bonnie's book back up. Then I found I could not put it down—a fan had to all but shout in my face for an autograph!
Snargle Goldclaw: Amid all the death and unfortunate dismemberments...the story does have a heart.
Snargle Goldclaw: A heart that might not be free to love, but that is instead fighting for the ability to do so one day.
Snargle Goldclaw: I might have been a bit...closed-minded. It was hard to not look at "SUPER ADVENTURE BOX: THE OFFICIAL NOVEL..."
Snargle Goldclaw: And not see the book I would have written in its place.
Snargle Goldclaw: I prefer to write the world as it should be, but perhaps there is room for books that warn us of what it might become...
Talk more option tango.png Which of the things I've found has meant the most to you?
Snargle Goldclaw: I have been perusing that book you brought me by Ja Wen...
Snargle Goldclaw: Did you know her book inspired the people to demand better working conditions within the textile industry?
Snargle Goldclaw: It has led me to ruminate on the place of the wordsmith in society...
Snargle Goldclaw: And what obligation one has to use one's work to effect a sort of positive change to the social, ah, fabric.
Snargle Goldclaw: Is it enough to champion the heart, the body? Should I also champion the downward trodden?
Snargle Goldclaw: it grandiose to imagine that words have that kind of power?
Snargle Goldclaw: Is it instead that great writers, being sensitive creatures, get swept up in the tides of social movements...
Snargle Goldclaw: Forgive me, Commander, I do believe I've been rambling.
Talk end option tango.png I'll keep looking.
Speaking to Yenna
I'm busy with my jade research.
Talk more option tango.png I hear you also distribute jade statues?
Huh? Been a while since anyone wanted to talk about by artsy side gig. Hard to focus on that with all the recent disturbances. If you help my husband and I, I'll get one sent to you, okay?
Talk more option tango.png Uh, where is your husband?
Hmm. We got separated, so he's probably still out there trying to find his way to me. You may be able to find him around here. I'll mark it on your map.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks!
Talk end option tango.png A jade statue would be great!
Talk end option tango.png Okay.
Speaking to Sagan Malaya
Be careful... A group of powerful Wardens is conducting a foul ritual nearby. Their leader hates morals even more than the rest...
Talk more option tango.png I was told you know something about finding Kurzick runes?
Yes. The speakers use them in rituals sometimes, but they are reluctant to give them up. Luckily for you, one seems to have defected. She's trying to deal with that Warden group I mentioned.
Talk more option tango.png Do you know where she is?
I think I heard her nearby. She'll be somewhere around here, trying to figure out how to stop the Wardens.
Talk more option tango.png Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see if I can find her.
Talk end option tango.png I will.
Final conversation with Snargle
Snargle Goldclaw: Miss Kunderah!
Bonnie Kunderah: Snargle. Um, how's... everything going?
Snargle Goldclaw: Quite dire, I'm afraid. Kippo will be dropping me as a client.
Bonnie Kunderah: Yeah, I heard about that. It's actually...
Snargle Goldclaw: You'll be happy, I suppose. One less writer to compete with.
Bonnie Kunderah: You really think that's what I want?
Bonnie Kunderah: You were supposed to be my mentor. Instead, you treated me like your butler!
Snargle Goldclaw: That's not true. You earned a great deal of experience brewing my coffee.
Bonnie Kunderah: Really, Snargle?
Snargle Goldclaw: I... (sigh) I'm sorry, Bonnie. I took you for granted, and I couldn't see your potential. I know that now.
Snargle Goldclaw: I'm a changed charr. Ruki has taught me what it means to be a mentor.
Snargle Goldclaw: Taught me that being a great writer is more than putting great words on a page.
Bonnie Kunderah: Who the hell is Ruki?
Snargle Goldclaw: Bonnie. Do you really want to write "SUPER ADVENTURE BOX: THE OFFICIAL NOVEL: THE SEQUEL"?
Snargle Goldclaw: You have a GIFT. And Kippo is squandering it!
Bonnie Kunderah: There was a time when I would've killed to write "SUPER ADVENTURE BOX: THE OFFICIAL NOVEL: THE SEQUEL."
Bonnie Kunderah: But I think I want to write something on my terms. For myself.
Bonnie Kunderah: I don't care if Kippo calls it "unpublishable." Guess he'll fire me too.
Snargle Goldclaw: Well... I'd be honored to be in such talented company.


NOTE: The items you obtain for Snargle will appear in his room and can be interacted with; the names are taken from the achievement as the items themselves don't have a label, the numbers correspond with the achievement steps.
Tengu Bow (2)
Snargle Goldclaw: I have spent a great deal of energy leaving behind war and defining myself as a different kind of charr. But the artistry of the tengu cannot be denied. Truly, these are weapons...of love.
Talk end option tango.png Just don't hurt yourself with it.
Toy Bell (3)
Snargle Goldclaw: It warms my heart to see such craftsmanship in a toy for cubs. The young are our future, and those who create art for them do not always get the credit they deserve.
Talk more option tango.png Do you write for children, too?
No, no. Not yet, anyway. Kippo says his "market research" indicates that parents want to keep their children far away from the "Goldclaw Brand." Bah! I'll prove them wrong one day.
Talk end option tango.png Maybe.
Talk end option tango.png It's certainly well made.
Teapot (4)
Snargle Goldclaw: I've only had tea once before. It was not to my liking. is the duty of the artist to broaden their horizons. I'm looking forward to trying it again...sometime...soon.
Talk end option tango.png Just don't let it oversteep.
Speaker Relic (6)
Snargle Goldclaw: Look at that thing glow. Where does the light come from? What keeps it going? What hands has it passed through before making it to mine?
Talk end option tango.png Mmmhmm...
Painting of Empress Ihn (7)
Snargle Goldclaw: I see portraits of this woman everywhere. Clearly, she is one of Cantha's most prolific models. I wonder if she would pose for my next cover...
Talk end option tango.png Um. That's the empress.
Sprout of the Forever Tree (8)
Snargle Goldclaw: I must admit when Ruki told me to look for a piece of a tree, I was...skeptical. But nature is truly an artist in her own way, is she not?
Talk end option tango.png Indeed.
Incense (10)
Snargle Goldclaw: This incense is a great reminder that art should evoke ALL the senses. I find myself ruminating on how it would improve the reader's experience to dab certain pages with lavender or sage or...musk.
Talk end option tango.png Or you could just describe the smells. With words.
Ja-Wen's Masterwork (11)
Snargle Goldclaw: This book is most illuminating. It could, perhaps, use a little more spice, however. Surely, all that hard work to change the world... Well, that would enflame the passions, no?
Talk end option tango.png Maybe.
Jade Statue (14)
Snargle Goldclaw: The carefully sculpted. I can sense the connection of artist to material, hands deftly manipulating the form to make manifest the internal in the external world.
Talk end option tango.png I, um, see that too.
Kurzick Rune (15)
Snargle Goldclaw: This carving is so simple, and effective. There are so many different cultures here in Cantha... So many cultures that have intermingled to create such an incredible synthesis. Inspiring.
Talk end option tango.png Glad you're feeling inspired.
