Script (Gridania)

The Gospel

Bricot: What will we do? What will we do!?
Twiggy's nowhere to be found!
Diggy: Twiggy egg! Twiiiiiiggy egg!

Jihli Aliapoh: Though demons assail us from every side,♪
'Tis 'round the warm hearth that true devils hide…♪
A basket empty, a fate forsworn,♪
Sees mountains rent and heavens torn!♪
And yet from the chaos shall old heroes rise♪
To hearken and heed the true Dreamer's cries…♪

(quest accept)
Jihli Aliapoh: So turn we to heroes, of conscience unstained!♪
May all stop at naught till what's lost is regained.♪

Jihli Aliapoh: To those who would serve them, will the Archons descend.♪
Find but their vessels, and the world will not end.♪

Hard at Work

Bricot: Do you remember Twiggy? The little spriggan who was here before? Well, he's gone, and he's taken all our Archon eggs with him! Every last one!
I thought Jihli was sure to be sore cross, but she didn't even raise her voice. She said that Twiggy's ber…bertra….betroy…betrothal was prosperized in the Gospel, and that we needn't worry, because a hero would come… A hero would come…? A…hero!!! You're the hero, aren't you! Jihli was right! It's just as she said, again!
Oh! That's right! I'm supposed to tell the hero that we'll give you an even more specialer cap if you help find us the lost eggs.
Bring one Archon egg and one lightning, earth, and water Archon egg, and I'll give you a pristine egg cap, but only if you don't already have one.
Find one colored Archon egg and one fire, wind and ice Archon egg, and you can have a vibrant egg cap.
Find one painted Archon egg, one astral Archon egg, and one fire, wind and lightning Archon egg, and Jihli said you could have a brilliant egg cap.
And last of all, trade me one darkened Archon egg, one umbral Archon egg, and one earth, ice, and…um…um…water! A water Archon egg, that was it. Anyway, bring that lot and you get a midnight egg cap.
Oh, but Jihli says we don't have much time until the summoning, so you'll have to look fast. Please look fast, hero. If Jihli can't do the rite, she can't call the Archons, and then I'll never be able to meet them, because Jihli says they won't come back for another twelvety thousand and forty hundred years, and I'll be dead and ate by worms and moles like grandad!

Diggy: Spriggy egg! Spriggy caaave! Emerald caaaaaave! Mossy caaaaaaaaave!
Diggy: Spriggy egg! Gloomy egg! Spriggy caaaaaave! Deep caaaaaave! Crofty caaaaaave!
Diggy: Spriggy egg! Color egg! Spriggy caaaaaave! Tranquil caaaaaave!

Rewards

(when turning in eggs)
Bricot: Are you back to trade again? Oh, you are, you are! Just like Jihli said you would be! You really are the hero! But I'd best count these eggs, just to make sure they're all here. Jihli would lock me in a box with Diggy if I made any mistakes…
The eggs were all there! Jihli will be so pleased! Here's your cap, just like I promised! All hail the hero of heroes!

Kikina: Though demons assail us from every side,♪
'Tis 'round the warm hearth that true devils hide…♪

Sees mountains rent and heavens torn!♪
And yet from the chaos shall old heroes rise♪
To hearken and heed the true Dreamer's cries…♪

Hard at Work

Figgy: Ziggy take egg! Figgy say no! Ziggy take Archon! Ziggy make Archon! Ziiiiiiggy!

Wadard: You've spoken with the Dreamer? Then you know that we have been betrayed.
One of the spriggans we enlisted to assist int he spreading of the gospel - Ziggy - has stolen our cache of Archon eggs.
The Dreamer foretold this misfortune in her gospel, and remains steadfast in her belief that the heroes who helped us once before will help us once again. She has even asked me to reward those who come to our aid with specially crafted egg caps.
Locate and retrieve one Archon egg and one lightning, earth, and water Archon egg, and I shall give you a pristine egg cap similar to the one the Dreamer wears herself.
Bring back one colored Archon egg and one fire, wind and ice Archon egg, and I shall give you a vibrant egg cap.
Bring one painted Archon egg, one astral Archon egg, and one fire, wind and lightning Archon egg, and I shall give you a brilliant egg cap.
Finally, locate one darkened Archon egg, one umbral Archon egg, and one earth, water and ice Archon egg, and I shall give you a midnight egg cap.
But please do hurry. The summoning ritual draws near, and without the eggs, we are sure to fail…

Figgy: Spriggy egg! Gloomy egg! Spriggy caaave! Copper caaaaaave! Ringy caaaaaaaaave!
Figgy: Spriggy egg! Spriggy caaave! Dry caaaaaave! Bony caaaaaaaaave!

Rewards

Wadard: Fortune alights on the shoulders of those♪
Who gather the eggs that Heaven bestows!♪

(Trade for which cap? Pristine/Vibrant/Brilliant/Midnight)

(if eggs don't match)
Wadard: I fear you are mistaken. The eggs you have brought me today cannot be exchanged for the cap you specified.
Locate and retrieve one Archon egg and one lightning, earth, and water Archon egg, and I shall give you a pristine egg cap similar to the one the Dreamer wears herself.
Bring back one colored Archon egg and one fire, wind and ice Archon egg, and I shall give you a vibrant egg cap.
Bring one painted Archon egg, one astral Archon egg, and one fire, wind and lightning Archon egg, and I shall give you a brilliant egg cap.
Finally, locate one darkened Archon egg, one umbral Archon egg, and one earth, water and ice Archon egg, and I shall give you a midnight egg cap.

(if eggs match)
Wadard: Yes, I believe everything is in order. Let me go and collect your cap from our tents. One moment please.
A great darkness looms over the realm, and many will fall under its shadow. However, you have prove there is light in your heart, and where there is light, there is hope. May this cap bless you and protect you in the coming moons.

Script (Limsa)

The Gospel

Fhlae: The flea-ridden bastards! They've nicked our bloody eggs!

Motte: Though demons assail us from every side,♪
'Tis 'round the warm hearth that true devils hide…♪
A basket empty, a fate forsworn,♪
Sees mountains rent and heavens torn!♪
And yet form the chaos shall old heroes rise♪
To hearken and heed the true Dreamer's cries…♪

(quest accept)
Motte: So turn we to heroes, of conscience unstained!♪
May all stop at naught till what's lost is regained.♪

Motte: To those who would serve them, will the Archons descend.♪
Find but their vessels, and the world will not end.♪

Hard at Work

Wiggy: Iggy take egg! Iggy make Aaarchon! Iggy Aaaaaarchon!

Fhlae: A bloody mess is what it is. Hells-damned demon took everythin' we had! Don't know how the Dreamer'll manage the summonin' now.
What demon!? Iggy, that's what demon! The little hairball's only gone and betrayed us. There ain't a single Archon egg left int he Lady's tents! 'Course, that aint't to say the Dreamer didn't see this comin'. 'Twas all spelt out right there in her gospel, see. Still, knowin' the truth aforehand don't make it no easier to swallow.
Gospel also said you'd be back to help, and it don't surprise me seein' as how ye're the greediest git on the isle. Anyroad, this here's how it's gonna work: you catch them thievin' spriggans and bring back the eggs, and I'll see to it ye're rewarded for yer troubles.
Bring one Archon egg and one lightnin', earth and water Archon egg, and I'll trade ye the lot for a fancy pristine egg cap, just like before.
Bring one colored Archon egg and one fire, wind, and ice Archo n egg, and I'll let ye have one of these vibrant egg caps.
Bring one painted Archon egg, one astral Archon egg, and one fire, wind and lightnin' Archon egg, and ye'll get a brilliant egg cap.
Lastly, find one darkened Archon egg, one umbral Archon egg, and one earth, water and ice Archon egg, and I'll give ye this shiny midnight egg cap.
But ye'd best be swift as a dip on the docks. The ritual ain't but a few nights hence, and without them eggs, the world'll be neck-deep in a pot of boilin' rat piss.

Wiggy: Spriggy egg! Spriggy caaave! Bony caaaaaave! Valley caaaaaaaaave!
Wiggy: Spriggy egg! Iggy egg! Iiiggy caaave! Cassy caaaaaave! Hollow caaaaaaaaave!
Wiggy: Spriggy egg! Painty egg! Spriggy caaave! Seedy caaaaaave! Woody caaaaaaaaave!
Wiggy: Spriggy egg! Color egg! Spriggy caaave! Bloody caaaaaave! Sandy caaaaaaaaave!

(Cassiopeia Hollow)
Iggy: Oh! Smoothy bring eggy! All eggy! Iggy summon Archon! Iggy hero! Iiiggy Archon heeerooo!'

(when you don't have the right eggs)
Fhlae: That draff slothin' around in yer ruddy head's bunged up yer ears now, has it? If ye wants that cap, ye'll need the items I clearly bloody stated. Like I said, bring me one Archon egg and one lightnin', earth and water Archon egg, and I'll trade ye the lot for a fancy pristine egg cap, just like before.
Bring one colored Archon egg and one fire, wind, and ice Archo n egg, and I'll let ye have one of these vibrant egg caps.

Fhlae: 'Tain't that I don't trust ye - 'cause I don't - but these eggs'll need countin'…
Aye, take yer bloody cap, but just you remember whose good grace it was what got ye this far. Now, if ye truly wants to help the Dreamer, ye'll bugger off back out there and find us some more eggs!
