Stuff Did Today (FF XI): Made my way through the jungles of the Elshimo Lowlands into the Sea Serpent Grotto... and within there we found the hideout of Norg. Here, we met up with Lion who recounted for us what happened when we beat the Shadow Lord...
Apparently, the Grand Duke of Jeuno and his little brother showed up, and proclaimed themselves to be the last of the Zilart... another one of the ancient races of Vana'diel, thought to be extinct. They summoned five ancient crystal warriors who are to purge the world of everyone... well, the ex-shadow lord turned himself back into the shadow lord to give us time to escape, even though he was basically committing suicide.
We then met the leader of Norg... a man called Gilgamesh(cue Battle at the Big Bridge)... he says that he once had gone deep into the Temple of Uggalepih and found an old lady who told him to return when the end was near... or something like that... obviously the return of the Crystal Warriors is the trigger for this... so we should probably return. We headed over to Kazham, to see the chieftain who gave us a key to the sacrificial altar deep within the temple... she told us we didn't know what we were getting ourselves into.
We returned to Norg and talked to Magephaud who gave us a key which would give us access to a Tonberry Priest who could cleanse us of the hate that the Tonberrls had toward us. We then went to the temple and got a key... the key opened a library of sorts.. we read some books and then found a paintbrush in a coffin... yay??? Then we headed a little further in and tried to find an Unlit Lantern... because it might be useful...
Status & Notes:
Again... sorry for the delay in writing up some stuff. Things have been kind of crazy in real life... I haven't even gotten any play time in a couple days. So yeah... anyway, started the Rise of the Zilart questline. Seems pretty cool... though, honestly, I've had a lot of bad luck with random drops... took me quite a while to get the key I needed for the paintbrush room... and I've probably been trying for at least an hour at this point to get the Unlit Lantern with no success... maybe I'll have to try actually going into the Den of Rancor and trying to get it there...
Alright, I'll leave some notes for the other couple posts I have to do today...
