DummyDummy: We still need to make a few Xiao Lanterns, but we're missing two Lantern Fibers and two Wick Materials. The boss says that he'll think of something, though...
• Talk to Mr. Zhu
Mr. ZhuMr. Zhu: There must be a way...
Mr. Zhu: Oh, it's you, Traveler. You know how it's the time of the Lantern Rite, right? Well, I was trying to think of a way to help give my business a bit of a boost during all the festivities.Mr. Zhu: Good location, nice scenery, and food... we've got plenty of that, too.Mr. Zhu: I can see it now...They'll release the Mingxiao Lantern in the city, and here we've got tasty food, plenty to drink, and an incredible view — it's going to be spectacular!Mr. Zhu: This'll be my main selling point to attract more customers. What do you think?
Mr. Zhu: Uh, of course you can see it from here... The lantern's so big that you'll certainly be able to see part of it, at least.Mr. Zhu: Anyway, we'll get to that when the time comes. First, I need to get the inn squared away for more guests.Mr. Zhu: Traveler, could I trouble you to collect some Xiao Lantern-making materials? I would like to hang some around the inn.
Mr. Zhu: All I need are the materials. Constructing the lanterns can be quite time-consuming.Mr. Zhu: So once you've collected the materials, just give them to Dummy and he'll take care of the rest. I'll be attending to other matters in the meantime.Mr. Zhu: Of course, I won't be letting you leave empty-handed. I'll be sure you're rewarded after some guests come and business picks up.
Mr. Zhu: Uh, well... Even if no guests show up, I'll still have something prepared for you. Don't worry about that.Mr. Zhu: I'm sure more guests will start to arrive once the inn is put in good order.Mr. Zhu: *cough* Just pass those materials to Dummy. I'll finalize your payment tomorrow based on the situation.
