Script

Black Market

Momodi: Have a habit of turnin' up at the right time, don't you <Player>? Aye, well, there's news from Limsa - news what might interest you a great deal.
Seems there's a hidden grotto somewhere on the isle of Vylbrand. And in its deepest reaches - a black market!
Aye, a place where pirates from all over flock to trade their plunder. True or not, no self-respectin' merchant of Ul'dah could let such a tale pass without prickin' up an ear.
Think of it. Ill-gotten goods of all sorts bein' bought and sold at a fraction of their true worth, each sale undercuttin' the honest souls here who toil day and night sellin' the selfsame wares to scrape a livin'… If it is indeed happenin', it can't be allowed to go on.
Or at least that's what those very merchants felt moved to come and tell me. They've requested someone be sent to this grotto - Shposhae, they call it - to see if there's any truth to these rumors.
Chances such as this don't come often. You'd do well to put yourself in the good graces of these merchants. Do right by them, and might be they'll put in a good word for you with the Immortal Flames.
Take the task or don't - matters none to me. But if you mean to see it done, travel first to Limsa and pay a visit to the Astalicia. There's a bloke there by the name of Hasthwab you'll want to talk to.
What? Too far, is it? Are you a bloody adventurer or ain't ya!? Aye? You are? Then bloody well adventure!
Gods, I've half a mind not to tell you this now, dirty ingrate that you are, but the merchants've laid on transport for any souls willin' to make the voyage. Bloody air transport, no less.
If you can't be bothered to go by land and sea, then take to the air. Don't know what else them airships is good for, if not cartin' around lazy bastards such as yourself.
(quest accept)
Momodi: The Wellhead Lift in the south of Ruby Road Exchange'll see you to the airship docks. Off you go, then. I'll be prayin' that airship o' yours don't crash and burn.
This ticket'll get you passage on the airship. You'll be neck-deep in fish guts and cockles before you know it.

Heading Out

(Airship Docks)
Stangyth: Greetings, sir, and welcome to the airship docks of Highwind Aeronautics.
We are happy to announce that since the re-establishment of the Grand Companies, the city-states are seeing to the constant surveillance of Eorzea's skies, rendering it safe for us to resume flights. And not a day too soon, what with all of the men and materials that need transporting!
We are currently offering passage between Ul'dah, Gridania and Limsa Lominsa.
Our airships were built at the famous Garlond Ironworks, and their safety and speed are second to none. If you have not flown with us before, I strongly urge you to do so. It is quite an experience!
(take the airship to Limsa Lominsa? yes)
Stangyth: your ticket please, sir.
Passage to Limsa Lominsa, I see. Very well. Your vessel will arrive shortly.
I am told there are two things in Limsa best avoided - the pirates and…everyone else. Ahem. Just a little joke, that. Do take care, though, sir.

Drunken Pirates

(Limsa Lominsa, Astalicia)
Hasthwab: Bugger me… What bollock-brained business could drag the likes o' ye in 'ere? Eh? Whassat? Th' black market o' Shposhae, ye say? O, aye! The famous black market o' Shposhae! That black market! Gah hah hah hah! Come all th' way from Ul'dah to ask me that, 'ave ye?
Well, me trustin' friend, I dunno which sly sod poured that bilge into yer braincase, but there ain't no black market in Shposhae. Nay, not so much as a single stall.
Aye, there's a cave near 'ere by that name, that much be true. But it ain't nothin' to no one, save a few cunnin' 'Cudas.
A black market run by sea dogs? Word'd get out soon as th' first sale was made. Secret port? Underground tunnels? Gah hah hah hah!
Ye been too long in Ul'dah, lad. Mere mention o' gil an' off e go! Too many fairy tales from yer wet nurse, I reckon. Aye, an' that be why I don't never believe aught I 'ear at a woman's teat! Gah hah hah hah!
…Still 'ere, eh? Can I take it that ye ain't rightly inclined to believe me, neither?
Well, I sure as 'ells ain't stoppin' ye from goin' there, ye daft bugger! Follow the cave as far it bloody goes an' see fer yerself!
I tell ye what - 'ave a little think on it, an' let ol' 'Asthwab know if ye be dead set on explorin'. Jus' don't go blaim' me when ye ends up just plain dead! Gah hah hah hah!
Aye, aye…jestin' apart, though, it might be as I've a secret t' share wi' ye. One I ain't never told another soul… An' if that don't get yer adventurer's juices flowin', I dunno what will!
