The Ground Beneath our Feet is a Heart-to-Heart in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It can be found at Grian, Wing Area #2 in Hardhaigh Palace, Empire of Mor Ardain. Staying at Jakolo's Inn before viewing this Heart-to-Heart may trigger additional dialogue pointing to its location.
As I recall, you see a great vista from Hardhaigh Palace... Like the second Wing Area, Grian, for instance.
Your technology is so much more advanced than Gormott's, and you've got army facilities, hot springs...
Looks to me like you've got all you need right here. I guess I don't get why you had to go and annex Gormott...
But as the Titan nears the end of its lifetime, the temperature has started rising steadily.
Ironically, while this has made our heat-powered technologies even more efficient...
Our farmland has done very much the opposite of flourish.
Sensing that, the Senate started a war to conquer a new home for our people.
We could've worked together on this!
Just like you and me. We were enemies at first, sure, but now we're allies, fighting on the same side.
If our nations could've done the same, it wouldn't have had to come to war.
If everyone in this world thought like you do, terror and strife wouldn't be so commonplace.
Rex told us, right? If we reach the World Tree, there'll be no need for fighting any more.
I'd rather be an optimist than just despair at the state of the world.
But no. I dunno if you were refusing to show weakness, or if you just felt you were better than us...
But you put your damn pride above all other things and chose to invade. Am I wrong?
You started a war. Wanting to save lives, you ended up losing lives. How backwards is that?
If you can't make enough food...
why not just...bow your head and ask if you could share?
I mean, we were enemies once, but now we understand each other...
How could a sodding government not even think of it?
Sometimes the most obvious way is the most difficult to take.
That's exactly why I want to support the boy, and other upright people like him.
And if there's anyone who could ever make it true, it's him.
Every age needs its own dreamers to forge new paths, after all.
But here you are, believing in the Elysium story.
I too want to see the fruits of this dream you all share. That's why I'm with you.
Yeah, I think we can make good use of the Empire's finest!
No matter what path we tread, I'll be there to help you on the way...
