Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Headmaster Greico
"<Player name>, you have become a valued ally, and I would like your assistance on a special project.
A red frog has reportedly been sighted here on the island. I'm certain I don't need to tell you that red frog sightings are very rare in this part of Cantha, and if confirmed, could be an excellent piece of luck for us. But I don't trust rumors and gossip; I want you to accompany Sujun and Zho on a mission to verify the beast's existence. They await you in Panjiang Peninsula."
Yes Accept: "You honor me, headmaster."
No Decline: "I have another task to finish, first."
Ask Ask: "Meet Zho and Sujun in Panjiang Peninsula. Help them track the red frog"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Zho: "It is about time you arrived. Sujun, here, believes his pet panda is something of a tracker. Anyone with an ounce of sense knows that this is a ridiculous claim, but Sujun is my equal and insists on letting Ling Wong prove herself. So, while I am loathe to speak these words...we follow the panda."
Sujun: "Nonsense, Zho! Pandas are among the finest trackers in the animal kingdom! Come, Ling Wong...find us that red frog!"
Sujun: "Look, a pride of kappa! Be careful not to startle them. Kappa are very fond of cucumbers, you know...."
Zho: "They look to me like they would be just as happy to snack on Rangers.... Look out!"
Zho: "Are you certain your panda knows what she's doing?"
Sujun: "Ling Wong is an expert tracker. Look, a Yeti!"
Zho: "She is supposed to be tracking the red frog, not Yetis!"
Sujun: "Well, the two must be very similar in terms of smell."
Sujun: "Do not judge these poor wretches too harshly; society is to blame for their desperate acts of banditry."
Zho: "Ahem...."
Sujun: "Look at that! Is it not magnificent? Contrary to popular belief, lake drakes are actually very shy creatures and only attack when provoked."
Zho: "It is coming right for us!"
Sujun: "You must have frightened it, Zho!"
Sujun: "You see, Zho! Ling Wong has found the red frog! I knew she would. It is a beauty, is it not?"
Zho: "I am inclined to believe the beast gave itself up out of pity. Return to Headmaster Greico and tell him we have confirmed the beast's existence. I will stay here and make sure Ling Wong does not find any more trouble."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Headmaster Greico
"You have confirmed the sighting? A fortunate sign, indeed. Excellent work, young Ranger. Do not forget to visit Master Togo in Linnok Courtyard now that you have completed your advanced lessons."

Notes[edit]

  • If one of the instructors dies, you must rezone to try again.

Trivia[edit]

  • Sujun's line about Kappas being fond of cucumbers comes from Japanese folklore, which states that cucumbers are the only food they love more than children.
