FrancisFrancis: Where's that cargo... My stomach's growling already...
• Talk to Huangshan
HuangshanHuangshan: How am I supposed to deliver this...
Huangshan: You're a traveler, I'll wager. You're quite the lucky one, to have come to Liyue just as the Lantern Rite is beginning. I, on the other hand, don't have much time for celebration...Huangshan: We natives of Liyue have a tradition of releasing Xiao Lanterns during the Lantern Rite. Every year, the amount of lantern-making materials making the rounds through the trade routes is massive.Huangshan: And it might just be my imagination, but it feels like this year's got even more cargo than usual.Huangshan: It's all a little too much for me right now, and what's more, that merchant keeps rushing me, without any consideration for the road conditions here in Liyue...Huangshan: I'm of a mind to ask someone for help, but haven't been able to find anyone suitable. You up for an escort job?
Huangshan: Great! I like straightforward people. If only the person we were escorting was more like you...Huangshan: His name is Fran, uh... Francis. Ugh, I don't have a head for foreign names.Huangshan: If you're helping out, meet me at the place where the stores are being kept.Huangshan: I've marked that spot on your map. I'll be heading there first. Let's meet up in a bit.
Huangshan: That's right. What was his name again... Fran... Francis? Ugh, foreign names are so hard to pronounce.Huangshan: I don't know what he wants with such a large batch of goods either, but... Well, so long as he's paying.Huangshan: Don't worry, you'll get your fair share once the work's done.Huangshan: If you're helping out, meet me at the place where the stores are being kept.Huangshan: I've marked that spot on your map. I'll be heading there first. Let's meet up in a bit.
• Talk to Huangshan at the goods storage location
HuangshanHuangshan: Well, this is where we store the goods. I do realize that I'm troubling you to help out, so you just need to escort this one Transport Balloon.Huangshan: But let me just remind you, the cargo it carries is entirely made of fragile materials used in Xiao Lantern construction.Huangshan: It won't do if they get damaged or burned, so you have to be careful while you're out there on the road.Huangshan: Best be on your guard, monsters and Treasure Hoarders pass this way from time to time, too.Huangshan: Well, I'll leave this run to you. Just make sure the goods get to Francis safe and sound, and we'll meet afterwards on the bridge southwest of Chihu Rock.
• Escort the transport balloon to Francis
• Talk to Francis
FrancisFrancis: These are... the goods I ordered. My word, they're finally here.Francis: From your style of dress, friend, you must also not be a Liyue local. Am I right in saying so?Francis: Ah, friend, I do not know if you have had the privilege of trying Liyue's delicacies, but they are lovely. Believe me, they are absolutely worth a try!Francis: Alright, now that my cargo has arrived, I can return to eating in peace.
• Head to the designated location to look for Huangshan
• Give the finished Xiao Lantern to Huangshan
HuangshanHuangshan: Oh, this Xiao Lantern's pretty good. Thanks! Let me see, what should I write...Huangshan: Ah, I don't think I can come up with anything good... Let's just go with "may everything go well," I guess.Huangshan: As long as all things go as I expect them to, I'll be thankful to Rex Lapis already.Huangshan: Oh yes, here's your compensation. Thanks so much for your help, and for that Xiao Lantern you gave me.
HuangshanHuangshan: I've been in contact with Francis. He's received that batch of goods — thanks a lot.
Huangshan: Haha, oh, not to worry. Guards for hire like myself are quicker on our feet than most, and when it comes to handovers... We're pretty quick there, too.Huangshan: It's thanks to your help that this run went smoothly. And just so you know, I'm a believer in reasonable pay for all. So give me a moment...
Huangshan: In our line of business, you never know when there'll be work. Can't even be home for the Lantern Rite... But then again, it can't be helped.Huangshan: If you're traveling the world, you should go to Liyue to experience the Rite — everyone should be releasing Xiao Lanterns at this time.
Huangshan: Oh, I do work outside the city year in and year out. Never quite had the time to release a Xiao Lantern.Huangshan: If I had a ready-made one, it sure would be nice to release one for good luck, but I haven't the time to put a lantern together myself.Huangshan: I'm missing out on that festive cheer for sure, but I guess it doesn't matter that much...
Huangshan: Huh? You'll get one for me? You're... a pretty nice person, aren't you?
Huangshan: Huh? You'll get one for me? You're... a pretty nice person, aren't you?
Huangshan: Not yet. Traveling guards like us don't have time for that sort of thing.Huangshan: If I had a ready-made one, it sure would be nice to release one for good luck, but I haven't the time to put a lantern together myself.Huangshan: I'm missing out on that festive cheer for sure, but I guess it doesn't matter that much...
Huangshan: Huh? You'll get one for me? You're... a pretty nice person, aren't you?
Huangshan: Huh? You'll get one for me? You're... a pretty nice person, aren't you?
HuangshanHuangshan: Are you really going to make me a Xiao Lantern?
