PaimonPaimon: What's this? ...A notebook?Paimon: Seems like some sort of records left behind by someone who once investigated the area.Paimon: #{NICKNAME}, Paimon bets these will be of great value— um, historical value to someone. Let's go ask around.
• Return to the base camp and ask the researchers for clues regarding the journal.
Stevens
Stevens: Huh? Up on the mountain? Let me take a look...Stevens: Wow, what a find! This is a priceless treasure.
Paimon: Treasure!?Stevens: ...A treasure trove of knowledge for the history enthusiast, I mean.Stevens: Once, on a research trip, I read some ancient historical annals.Stevens: I remember one of them, from before the time of the Knights of Favonius, talked about a team sent by the aristocrats to investigate the mountain.Stevens: For some reason, though, the annals provide next to no details about what the investigation team found...Stevens: If this is one of the journals kept by that investigation team, it will serve as an immensely valuable historical source for researchers.Stevens: Would you be willing to go back into the mountains and see if you can find any more of them?
Stevens: Really? Thank you ever so much!Stevens: Based on what I'm reading here... The team investigated three sites in total.Stevens: One of them was where you found this — so that leaves two more.Stevens: Let me see... here, and... here. I've marked them out on your map.Stevens: Thank you for agreeing to this, and please be careful out there!
Stevens: Haha, in terms of material wealth... I can't guarantee there will be.Stevens: But for helping me, I will make sure to provide you with compensation of a suitably material nature. A reward for your great contribution to academic research.Stevens: Based on what I'm reading here... The team investigated three sites in total.Stevens: One of them was where you found this — so that leaves two more.Stevens: Let me see... here, and... here. I've marked them out on your map.Stevens: Thank you for agreeing to this, and please be careful out there!
• Head to "South Base Camp" to search for journals
• Head for the "secret chamber" to search for journals
• Give the gathered journals to Stevens
Stevens
Stevens: You found the rest of them? Amazing! Here, let me take a look...Stevens: Hmm... Wow, my goodness... Wait, if this detail is correct...
Stevens: Oh, uh... Sorry, I was lost in thought. Ahem.Stevens: Thank you, these investigation journals are of rather significant historical value. There is a serious dearth of detail on this topic in the existing literature, as all the available sources only make passing reference to some mysterious investigation team formed once by the aristocrats...Stevens: These journals you found will help fill in some major gaps in the historical record.Stevens: Now, we finally have answers to the questions of why so little information on the investigation appears elsewhere — and why nothing of relevance beyond the initial departure of the team is recorded in the annals.
Stevens: Yes, well... Although there are still a fair few minor details to straighten out, the overall picture is becoming very clear.Paimon: ...Paimon doesn't get it!Stevens: Well, all the evidence — or lack thereof — would suggest that not one member of the investigation returned to Mondstadt. But, these journals suggest there's a chance that one of them, called Eberhart, may have managed to escape...Stevens: Since there is no record of his return in Mondstadt, however... The million-Mora question is: Where did he go?Stevens: Many other details need corroborating, too...Stevens: But without a doubt, this doesn't detract from how valuable these are as historical sources.Stevens: I am most grateful to you. Please take this for your trouble.Stevens: Any other books you find while out exploring the mountains, I'd be much obliged if you could bring them to me on your return.Stevens: Eberhart... Where did you go...
• Go to the "cellar in the southwestern ruins" to search for journals
