Is Part ofLantern Rite: Day 4
DescriptionAfter receiving your help, Millelith is finally able to assign a little group to reinforce their defenses around the city. Unsatisfied with the lack of effort from them, you've come back to the area hoping to find more clues. To your surprise, you met Xiao, a Liyue adeptus who also has the same intention as you. You both discovered that there are some markings at the corners of the construction site. "If a shackle within the realm of deities and demons got loose, I shall take full responsibility." "But this time, the threat comes from the mortal world —— your world, and thus, you shall take full responsibility, mortal traveler." said the adeptus to you. To decipher the markings and to learn its origin, you're reminded of that person that you've met in Mondstadt, a knight who prioritizes results above all else without caring about every trivial law...

• Talk to Kaeya
Kaeya
Kaeya: #Well, well, long time no see, {NICKNAME}!
Paimon: Kaeya, we went to the Lantern Rite in Liyue!
Kaeya: Ah. Well, how was it? Fun?
Paimon: Delicious!
Kaeya: Well then, you ought to be looking forward to Mondstadt's Ludi Harpastum. I'm sure it will be to your liking.
Paimon: Right, right! Kaeya, there's something we need to tell you about.
Kaeya: Hmm... Lantern supplies... Stockpile of wood, paper, and oil... At the very least, it sounds like an accident waiting to happen.
Kaeya: Haha, how very amusing. What makes you think I would recognize this symbol?
Paimon: Oh, that about sums it up!
Kaeya: Hah. I'm flattered, but don't you think you might be overestimating me?
Paimon: There it is! At last, Kaeya displays the knightly virtue of modesty, perfectly articulated and masterfully delivered.
Kaeya: My goodness, your stay in Liyue seems to have sharpened your wit and broadened your vocabulary.
Kaeya: Anyway, I digress. This is the symbol of the cross-border criminal organization you know as the Treasure Hoarders.
Kaeya: If you are curious to know more, I can put you in touch with an informant on the inside.
Paimon: Uhh, didn't you just say the Knights of Favonius don't have dealings with their enemies!?
Kaeya: ...This is my own personal informant. Nothing to do with the Knights of Favonius.
Kaeya: A little later, make your way over to Windrise. I'll arrange for the informant to meet you there.
Paimon: Thanks, Kaeya.
Kaeya: Oh, and remember: "wine begets wisdom."
Paimon: Huh?
Paimon: Exactly!
Kaeya: Uh-ah! You should watch what you say, Honorary Knight.
Kaeya: What do you mean, flirt with the dark side? The Knights of Favonius certainly does not have dealings with its enemies.
Kaeya: That has to do with a certain knightly virtue called "integrity."
Kaeya: Anyway, I digress. This is the symbol of the cross-border criminal organization you know as the Treasure Hoarders.
Kaeya: If you are curious to know more, I can put you in touch with an informant on the inside.
Paimon: Uhh, didn't you just say the Knights of Favonius don't have dealings with their enemies!?
Kaeya: ...This is my own personal informant. Nothing to do with the Knights of Favonius.
Kaeya: A little later, make your way over to Windrise. I'll arrange for the informant to meet you there.
Paimon: Thanks, Kaeya.
Kaeya: Oh, and remember: "wine begets wisdom."
Paimon: Huh?
• Talk to Kaeya's informant
Nimrod
Nimrod: Huh...
Paimon: Hey! You're the guy, right? Kaeya's informant?
Nimrod: Informant? Not me.
Paimon: But... This is the place we agreed upon... and you're the only other one here, so...
Nimrod: "Place we agreed upon"? Heh, I know nothing.
Paimon: Ugh, stop being so annoying!
Nimrod: Okay. Yeah, it's me.
Paimon: How was any of that even slightly necessary!?
Nimrod: What do you want to know about?
Paimon: *sigh* Here's the situation...
Nimrod: Okay. I see.
Paimon: So? What can you tell us as an insider?
Nimrod: I do not think this is the work of the Treasure Hoarders.
Nimrod: The reason the Treasure Hoarders are able to sustain a giant cross-border operation is because they abide by one fundamental principle:
Nimrod: Caution. Softly softly catchee monkey is the name of the game for them. By contrast, the idea of taking huge risks to try and make a fortune is utter folly in their eyes.
Nimrod: Liyue has the adepti looking after it, doesn't it? And they're especially active during the Lantern Rite...
Nimrod: There's just no way that we... sorry, "they"! Slip of the tongue — when you've been undercover as long as I have, heh, where was I... Oh, yes — There's just no way that they — the Treasure Hoarders — would dare make a move during the Lantern Rite.
Nimrod: Also... the Treasure Hoarders' organization in Liyue recently received an anonymous letter.
Paimon: Why would someone send them an anonymous letter? Trying to frame them, perhaps?
Nimrod: Nobody knows. But what I can tell you is which branch of the Treasure Hoarders has the letter in their possession.
Nimrod: ...There. I've marked their location on the map for you.
Paimon: #Great. Well, Paimon thinks this was productive! {NICKNAME}, this is our only solid lead. Let's not waste it!
Nimrod: If there's nothing more, I should get back to treasure hoarding. ...I mean, get back to those treasure-hoarding lowlifes. To spy on them. Heh.
Nimrod: Uh...
Paimon: ...
Nimrod: Okay... technically the wrong password, but... yes, it's something about wine, and assuming that something is the thing about it begetting wisdom, then...
Nimrod: Yeah, close enough. It's me.
Paimon: How was any of that even slightly necessary!?
Nimrod: What do you want to know about?
Paimon: *sigh* Here's the situation...
Nimrod: Okay. I see.
Paimon: So? What can you tell us as an insider?

• Locate the Treasure Thieves using the information
• Talk to the member of Treasure Thieves
Bei'er
Bei'er: Sorry pal, wrong way... Wherever you think you're going, it's that way.
Paimon: But isn't that the way to Liyue Harbor?
Bei'er: Right. Here is nowhere. So the other way is Liyue Harbor.
Crafty: If you're looking for somewhere to stay, I suggest you go to the Wangshu Inn. Fair prices, great customer service, and a wonderful view.
Bei'er: ...How do you know about the letter?
Paimon: ...Uh, one of Liyue's adepti told us about it!
Bei'er: Did they now? I somehow doubt that.
Xiao: You should not doubt it. It was I who sent them to investigate.
Xiao: Any further questioning, you may direct to me.
Bei'er: ...You're the Vigilant Yaksha!?
Paimon: Hey, watch your tone of voice! Or do you seriously wanna pick a fight with an adeptus?
Crafty: Uh, okay. It's not that we don't believe you're an adeptus, it's just... Everyone needs to look at the bigger picture here.
Bei'er: As you well know, we Treasure Hoarders are no serious threat to anyone. We're petty criminals, that's all.
Crafty: So if you are truly an adeptus, please... Show us some mercy, would you?
Bei'er: Of course, if it turns out you're not a real adeptus...
Crafty: Then please, don't blame our weapons for treating everyone equally...
• Defeat the Treasure Thieves
Bei'er
Bei'er: P—Please, my heroic friend! And adeptus buddy! Have mercy!
Crafty: The letter is drivel anyway! It's not worth an armed conflict... Just take it!
Paimon: How about that — Paimon knew it all along!
Paimon: #Let's see what they wrote, {NICKNAME}.
Xiao: I see. Then let us send these two to the meeting.
Xiao: The sender may be plotting something truly diabolical for the Lantern Rite. It seems they want to burn down the entire city.
Bei'er: Great, everyone's happy. You're good, we're good. However...
Crafty: These two... They don't look anything like us.
Paimon: It'll be fine. When we're in disguise, no-one will be the wiser.
Bei'er: It still seems like a long shot to me, but... with the help of an adeptus, hopefully everything will turn out fine...
Crafty: Well, the safety of Liyue is in your hands now. Good luck — even the Treasure Hoarders don't want to see the city burned to the ground.
Xiao: Then it is settled.
Xiao: *sigh* What is it?
Xiao: Huh?
Xiao: ...I am not partial to crowded areas. Especially at this time of the year.
Xiao: Must we?
Xiao: ...Understood. I shall await your news there.
