Town of Centaurius
Written by MSG Commander
When you arrive in Centaurius, there are soldiers guarding the town. Fortunately, they don't seem to notice you, so maybe the soldiers out here haven't heard about your group yet.
However, as you talk to the townspeople, you learn that people are being taken from Centaurius, and none of them have ever come back alive. To get to the bottom of things, talk to the group in the front of the Inn.
Trouble in Centaurius
It seems the Schwarzschild Army has been taking people from Centaurius, and using them in their secret experiments. When Eclair learns about this, she vows to put an end to it. Shion agrees that they need to do everything they can to stop the Empire.
In the basement of the Item Shop, there's a Wealthy Woman who has a huge collection of flowers. She asks you whether you like flowers or not. Answer yes, and she agrees to let you pick one of her flowers. (However, you won't actually be able to pick a flower until you've received Quest 42, so for now just remember that she's here.)
Thirst For Knowledge
In the south of town, there's an old man who will test your knowledge of Alphadia, and if you answer his questions correctly, will give you a reward. To reach the old man, enter the building in the southeast corner of town and follow the underground passage. When you come back out, go west and you'll run right into him.
For answers to all of his questions, see Quest 23.
The South of Town
As you're talking about stopping the Empire, there's a strange noise from the south of town. As you approach the south entrance, Tessarosa is there. He tells you he got attacked while searching the nearby tower where the Empire is conducting their experiments.
Ash takes Tessarosa to the Inn so he can recover, and there he tells you that he and Vanessa are working on a top secret project, and they need the Energi Stone that's at the top of the nearby tower. Ash gives Tessarosa the Energi Stone you found in Boreal Tower. Tessarosa says they need a lot more Energi Stones for their project, and warns you that the Empire is also searching for Energi Stones.
The tower you need to go to is the Promontory Spire, and it's west of Centaurius along the shoreline.
Before You Leave
If you haven't already, you should upgrade your Energi Rings before going on. Look for the Researcher here in front of the Weapons Shop.
Also, be sure to hit up the Weapons Shop and upgrade whatever you can.
- Clear Ring - located in the north of town above the Item Shop.
- Sapphire - located in the house in the southeast corner of town.
- Hi-Elixir - located in the southwest corner of town.
