Journal

Objectives

  • Overgrowth
    • Fleet Master Okaya has asked me to discover the source of a magical disturbance causing the coral in Sayuka's port to grow out of control.
  • Speak to Iverra
    • Fleet Master Okaya told me to talk to Iverra, a Vailian scientist who might be able to help me get to the source of Sayuka's coral problem. I can find her in the Royal Deadfire Company's workshop in Sayuka.
  • Travel to the underwater ruins of Cignath Mór
    • Iverra believes the source of the coral's overgrowth is an Engwithan ruin, Cignath Mór. She gave me a diving helm so I might explore the ruin, which lies deep beneath the sea off the southern coast of Sayuka.
  • Travel to the underwater ruins of Cignath Mór
    • Head Engineer Hetu believes the source of the coral's overgrowth is an Engwithan ruin, Cignath Mór. He gave me a diving helm so I might explore the ruin, which lies deep beneath the sea off the southern coast of Sayuka.
  • Find the source of the magical growth
    • I've arrived at the ruins of Cignath Mór and discovered they're full of breathable air. I still need to find whatever is causing the coral to grow out of control and put an end to it.
    • I found a small Engwithan machine, but I can't figure out what it does. Maybe something else in the ruins will shed some light on it.
    • I found a large Engwithan machine humming with energy, but I've decided against touching anything for now.
  • Deal with the machine
    • I found the machine at the source of the coral's growth, but when I attempted to shut it down, Galawain intervened. He asked that I leave the machine alone and instead deactivate the pylons that generate the shield protecting Cignath Mór from the sea.
    • I agreed to help Galawain, and he told me to deactivate three pylons somewhere in the ruin. Doing so should lower the barrier keeping the sea at bay.
    • I disabled one of the pylons, which appears to have slightly weakened the protective barrier. Two remain.
    • I disabled a second pylon, and the barrier has weakened considerably. One pylon remains.
    • I disabled the machine responsible for the out of control coral growth. Galawain is not pleased.
  • Return to Fleet Master Okaya
    • Despite Galawain's request, I disabled the machine responsible for the coral's overgrowth. I should return to Fleet Master Okaya and confirm the coral has returned to a manageable size.
    • As revenge for my defiance, Galawain sent a Kraken to stop me from leaving the ruins, but I prevailed.
  • Return to Fleet Master Okaya
    • As Galawain requested, I destroyed the pylons inside Cignath Mór. Without the shield to protect it, the ruin was swallowed by the sea. I should return to Fleet Master Okaya and give her the bad news.
  • Return to Fleet Master Okaya
    • I shut down the pylons inside Cignath Mór, and the ruins were swallowed by the sea. I should return to Fleet Master Okaya and find out if my efforts solved her coral problem.
  • Speak to Head Engineer Hetu
    • Fleet Master Okaya told me to talk to Hetu, the head engineer in Sayuka. He might be able to help me get to the source of the coral problem. I can find him in the Royal Deadfire Company's workshop in Sayuka with the rest of the engineers.

 

End States

  • Fleet Master Okaya was well pleased by how I resolved the coral situation. She's ordered that Sayuka's port be reopened without delay.
  • Fleet Master Okaya was incensed to learn the coral situation will remain unresolved, and she dismissed me with a token payment for my efforts. However, the blessing Galawain bestowed on me for doing his bidding will no doubt prove beneficial.
  • Fleet Master Okaya was incensed to learn the coral situation remains unresolved, and she dismissed me with a token payment for my efforts.
  • The Royal Deadfire Company has declared itself against me. I suspect they'll no longer be receptive to my help with their coral problem.

 

Tips & Tricks

  • If  Xoti is an active member of the party, your relationship towards her will lessen once you disable the engwithan machine.
