Rammbroes
Yes, yes...I must speak of the arrangements I made to acquire the two remaining varieties of aethersand.
Rammbroes
Some days ago, I asked a Sharlayan acquaintance of mine to travel to Gridania and there gather the necessary materials. Since that time, however, I have heard nary a whisper from him.
Rammbroes
To be frank, this lack of communication is not entirely uncharacteristic, but I cannot discount the possibility that something ill has befallen the man.
Rammbroes
Alas, we do not have time to investigate his fate. As I have mentioned before, the more we delay our expedition, the more likely it is that the Crystal Tower's secrets will fall into the wrong hands. Therefore, I would entrust you with the same mission I assigned to my friend. Travel to the Black Shroud, and seek out Parsemontret, the master of the markets in Gridania. If anyone knows where aethersand might be bought, it is he.
Parsemontret
Yes? ...I'm sorry? Did you say you wish to purchase aethersand? Forgive me, madam, but have you the faintest idea of the rarity of the material you seek? Why, I have not seen so much as a grain of aethersand in these markets for many a long year.
Parsemontret
I could tell you where one might mine the ore from which the water-aspected variety of the abrasive is derived, but only a desperate fool would willingly set foot in the place.
Parsemontret
...You seem undeterred. <sigh> Very well.
Parsemontret
Are you familiar with Urth's Gift? That is where the ore is to be found─in an area inhabited by a particularly pernicious hog. Should you encounter the betusked nightmare, you will know that you are in the right place...albeit at the wrong time. Farewell!
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)You are too late, adventurer─and not only for the entertainment. You will find no trace of the ore which but recently lay here. Nay, not so much as a speck.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Ah...no. You will never spy me from there. For the time being at least, you will have to trust the evidence of your ears. Now stop squinting at the foliage and listen.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)As I told you, the water-blessed mineral you hoped to find is gone─taken by me.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Victory has made me magnanimous, however. Accordingly, I have decided to share the location of an alternative source of aethersand with you─the wind-touched variety, to be specific. I trust I have your attention? Good. A band of Ixal in the North Shroud keeps a quantity of the abrasive for the purpose of removing impurities from lesser crystals.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Well? Do you mean to dally here all day? Make haste, adventurer, before I snatch another prize from under your nose! This is to be a race.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)The Ixali logging grounds in the North Shroud shall be our destination. And that is where the real amusement will begin. May the best man win!
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Bravo! That was quite a show, adventurer! Why, the spectacle proved so enthralling that all thoughts of aethersand slipped my mind.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)I appear to have forfeited our little race! Congratulations─the wind-touched abrasive is yours.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)And yet, having been treated to such a memorable performance, I cannot help feeling that the greater prize is mine. This inequity must not stand. I insist that you accept a token of my appreciation.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Payment for this entertainment will be waiting for you to the east, in a clearing within Proud Creek. Pray retrieve the gift ere it is crushed beneath the iron feet of the dullahans!
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Not what you were expecting? I took the liberty of refining the ore from Urth's Gift into aethersand. Do keep it safe, adventurer.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Lest you accuse me of playing games, you should know that the thought of relinquishing my prize never once crossed my mind─until I saw you in action. Such deeds must needs be rewarded.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)It is my vocation, you see, to record history as it is made by mortal men. And I much prefer to chronicle the accomplishments of the bold and the mighty.
Grahatia
(-Disembodied Voice-)Thus, it is my fervent wish that you continue your career with the same courage and zeal you have shown today. We shall meet again, adventurer─and sooner than you may imagine.
Rammbroes
What news of your mission? Are we any closer to acquiring the remaining abrasives?
Rammbroes
You've brought both!? I shall have Master Garlond begin work on the crystals immediately.
Cid
There. That should do the trick!
Rammbroes
Excellent work! We now possess all four of the “fangs” required to pierce the Crystal Tower's defenses. My compliments, Master Garlond!
Cid
Oh, it was a trifling matter, I assure you. here is the one you should be thanking. Anyway, by my reckoning, there's nothing stopping us from striding up to the Allagans' front door!
Biggs
(-???-)You can't go without us, Chief!
Cid
Biggs! Wedge! Come to lend a hand, have you?
Biggs
Well, it's not every day you get the chance to study the wonders of the Allagan Empire, is it? Their technology makes Garlemald's look ancient!
Cid
I appreciate your enthusiasm, lads, I really do, but we're not here to take this knowledge for ourselves.
Cid
Twice in the last decade, the promise of unimaginable power has prompted men to meddle with technology they do not understand, and the realm has been dragged unto the very brink of oblivion on both occasions. We shall not be so irresponsible as to risk another.
Cid
Wedge, do you recall our company's creed?
Wedge
Y-Yes, Chief! It's, um, “Freedom through Technology”?
Cid
Exactly. Freedom. When we forsook our homeland, we swore that we would have no truck with machines that could be used to promote tyranny. That has not changed. Should you feel tempted to break your oath, remember this: the wonders of the all-knowing Allagan Empire could not save their civilization, and have damn near doomed ours. Twice.
Cid
That is why we must explore the Crystal Tower, and, if needs be, seal away its secrets.
Grahatia
(-Familiar Voice-)A compelling viewpoint. It is unyielding wills such as yours that have defined the course of history.
Rammbroes
So, you return at last. What, pray tell, has kept you so wholly preoccupied that you could not spare a moment to inform me of your progress or preservation?
Grahatia
(-Familiar Voice-)Why, the task you assigned to me, of course. Surely you have not forgotten about the aethersand? I tasked a passing adventurer with delivering it. A more capable courier I could not imagine.
Grahatia
(-Familiar Voice-)Greetings, adventurer! Did I not say we would meet again?
Grahatia
I believe an introduction is in order. I am G'raha Tia, one of the Students of Baldesion. I look forward to joining you on your groundbreaking expedition!
Rammbroes
G'raha Tia has been assigned to the project as an observer. I hope you will forgive him his...eccentricities and welcome him as one of our own.
Grahatia
So then, our fellowship is complete, and all stand ready to step into the unknown! Three cheers for NOAH!
Cid
...“Noah”?
Grahatia
That is the name I have chosen for our little collective. Given our differing backgrounds, we cannot very well call ourselves the Sons of Saint Coinach, can we?
Grahatia
And we must have a memorable appellation if our venture is to leave its mark in the annals of history. I could claim that NOAH stands for “Nominated Observers of Artifacts Historical,” and so it does, technically─but my true reason for choosing this name stems from the fact that it is shared by a vaunted Allagan archmagus.
Wedge
An archmagus? I like the sound of that!
Rammbroes
...Very well. Now that the pressing matter of what to call ourselves has been settled, it is time we set forth to brave the outer defenses of the Crystal Tower. Is everyone ready to depart?
Noah
(-NOAH-)Ready!

#1
Rammbroes wishes to discuss the procurement of the outstanding varieties of aethersand.
#2
Rammbroes explains that he had made arrangements for an acquaintance of his to obtain the remaining varieties of aethersand. Since doing so, however, the dig supervisor has received no word of any kind, prompting him to worry that something may be amiss. Seek Parsemontret in the Gridanian markets, and inquire as to where aethersand might be procured.
#3
Parsemontret informs you that aethersand has not been sold in the markets for many years. Sensing your dejection, he mentions that you might consider mining the ore from which the water-aspected variety of the abrasive is refined. He is quick to point out, however, that the dangers inherent in this course of action make it an errand fit for desperate fools alone. Though you would ordinarily take issue with at least half of this description, it seems you have little choice but to accept the master's suggestion. Travel to Urth's Gift in the South Shroud and scour the territory of a particularly nasty hog.
#4
While examining a large porcine carcass in Urth's Gift, you are addressed by an unseen observer who smugly declares that he has already collected the water-blessed ore that you came to find. Ostensibly on a whim, he then proposes a race to obtain a quantity of wind-aspected aethersand held by the Ixal. Hurry to the Ixali logging grounds in the North Shroud, and wrest the precious abrasive from the talons of the feathered beastmen.
#5
After fighting your way past countless Ixal, you succeed in securing the wind-aspected aethersand. No sooner have you done so than you hear the voice of the unseen observer again. He thanks you for providing an entertaining spectacle, and declares his intention to reward your efforts. Travel to the clearing in Proud Creek and collect your prize, whatever it may be...

#6
Upon arriving at the clearing in Proud Creek, you are surprised to find the very thing you need most: water-aspected aethersand. With predictable timing, the unseen observer chooses this moment to break the silence, praising your deeds before promising that the two of you will soon meet again. Return to Saint Coinach's Find in Mor Dhona, and deliver the remaining abrasives to the waiting Rammbroes.
#7
Back in Mor Dhona, Cid processes the flawless crystals of wind and water using the aethersand you procured, finally completing the set of “fangs” required to penetrate the Crystal Tower's defenses. Soon after, you are joined by Biggs, Wedge, and the owner of the voice which pursued you around the Twelveswood─one G'raha Tia. The expedition team thus assembled, it is time at last to find out what momentous discoveries await within the Allagans' glittering spire.
