Hey, I heard they just stocked up on some old books at Reedirait Bookstore in Argentum. Why don't we go look?
The innkeeper here said they've got loads of bargains!
So, how about it? Aren't you interested?

This is the place.
Pelala
Hello, friend! What you looking for today?
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Well, I heard you might have got your hands on some ancient tomes or history books recently...
Pelala
Friend must have good sources!
We obtain very rare books recently. Many books you find nowhere else.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Ooh, don't say that. You'll start getting me excited!
Pelala
Please take time and look around. Pelala think you be satisfied!
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
You couldn't stop me if you tried. Now, let's see what we have here...
Wow, it's not just books. You've even got stone tablets and scrolls!
Ooh, what's this?! A history of Ardainian architecture!
I've never seen anything quite like this before. It sets my curiosity tingling!
Rododo arrives at the store.
Rododo
Hello, Pelala. You obtain book I ask for, me hopes?
Pelala
Ah, always a pleasure to be at service of friend!
Book you ask for should be arrived recently. Pelala see...
Ah, there you see! Girl over there holding book right now.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
What's this now?
Rododo
Awfully sorry to bother friend.
That there is book I looking for. Hand over now, please.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Hmm? Sorry, but I'm quite interested in this one myself.
Rododo
Many apology, but me request this book specially, before you.
Now give book here.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
I don't think so. I picked it up before you did!
Rododo
Friend is big dumdum. That book belong to me!
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Excuse me? Who are you calling a dumdum?
Do you have any idea who you're speaking to?
Pelala
Me have no clue who you are. Not care either.
Now hurry up and hand book over!
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
You really don't know how to ask for a favor, do you? All right, tell you what. I'll give you your precious book.
Rododo
As well you should! See, it not so hard to be-
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
However! That's only if you manage to beat me in a test of knowledge!
Rododo
Meh-meh? You think you cleverer than me?[1]
Very foolish girl... But so be it! I not back down from challenge!
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Good. Then we'll need a subject category.
Rododo
Must get fair impartial opinion. Let us ask Driver over there to choose!
Driver
What would be a good topic?
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
How about the history of Argentum?
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
The history of Argentum, of course.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
The history of Argentum, perhaps?
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
The history of Argentum, I reckon.
XC2 character icon Adenine.pngTrust +1000
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Ah, yes, a wonderful idea! Then shall we begin?
It is said that Argentum was originally founded by a Nopon merchant, yes?
Rododo
Even littlepon know that. Was not just merchant, either. Was Driver, too.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
So, this Nopon Driver...
Are you aware of how he used his Blade not as a tool of war, but as a trade associate?
Rododo
Wartime was very chaotic time. Argentum founder used Blade's power to great effect...
He go to crisis areas affected by strife or disaster, and form trading links where none exist. Very profitable.
And that not all. Argentum founder...
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
...is said to be descended from none other than Captain Nopopon.
Rododo
Captain Nopopon was legendary sailor who conquer all of Cloud Sea.
Also said to have founded what later become Nopon Trade Guild.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Considering the feats of his ancestor...
It is perhaps no wonder that this Nopon Driver went on to found the Argentum Trade Guild.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
How about the history of Uraya?
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
The history of Uraya, of course.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
The history of Uraya, perhaps?
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
The history of Uraya, I reckon.
XC2 character icon Adenine.pngTrust +1000
Rododo
Very good. Then we begin!
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
The modern nation of Uraya...
...is governed by six great noble lines, foremost among them the Duchy of Selosia.
Rododo
But long time ago, was governed by not six noble houses but nine!
Among those nine was Duchy of Envia, which hold power near equal to that of Selosia.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
But the leader of Envia, a man named Hannes, died suddenly in mysterious circumstances...
Rododo
So eldest son Giani take over Duchy, but he too soon die of illness.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Next in line was Giani's younger brother Philip, but he too died of illness before his twentieth birthday.
Rododo
Thus Duchy of Envia fall from power...
And Duchy of Selosia unite other noble houses, claiming title of King of Uraya.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Many mysteries yet remain surrounding the deaths of the Envian heirs...
Rododo
Many still suspect foul play from other noble lines, yes.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
But the tale does not end there.
Rododo
Indeed! Prior to sudden death, Hannes, original leader of Envia, secretly had child with Gormotti woman.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
And it is often claimed that their descendants live on to this day, somewhere in Gormott.
If this theory were to be proven...
Rododo
Could threaten very existence of current Urayan royal line!
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
I must say, I'm impressed. Your knowledge extends much further than I gave you credit for.
Rododo
Such flattering. I just as impressed with your knowledge!
Not many people out there who able to keep up with my history discussions.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Shall we consider this a draw?
Rododo
Certainly, certainly. Could not possibly decide winner after such fine showing.
Pelala
Sooooo... Who will be buying book, then?
Rododo
I let friend have this book.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Huh?
Rododo
To be read by such fine intellectual... What more could this book ask for?
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Thank you. I'll take good care of it.
Rododo
And if we have opportunity, would like to have heated discussion again!
As would I. I'll try to expand my knowledge even further by the next time we meet!
The scene fades to black for a moment. When it fades in again, Rododo is gone and Adenine is talking to Pelala.
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Well, then...it looks like I'll be buying this.
Pelala
Thanks very much! Book cost 70,000G
Adenine
XC2 character icon Adenine.png
Wow, that's surprisingly affordable...
Oh, shoot.
I’m clean out of cash.
