Nanaa Mihgo: You want to know if I have a “restrrricted book” in my possession, do you?
Where in Vana'diel did you hearrr that? You can never be too carrreful, you know.
Okay, I'll let you in on it.
You're a second rank adventurer, arrren't you? Then allow me to ask you this little favor I have firrrst...
If you scratch my back, I'll scrrratch yours...so to speak. Do what I ask and I'll let you check the book I found. How about it, then?
Hear her favor?
Did you know that up in the Tahrongi Canyon, there is a serrries of caves known as the Maze of Shakhrami?
If you examine the rocks in those caves with this Lapis monocle harrrd enough, you should be able to find a Lapis coral. I want you to brrring me one.
If that's how it is, then farrrewell, sucker.
Nanaa Mihgo: So, you came thrrrough with it?
Here, I'll give you this key. We'll make the trrransaction at my hideout, deep in the Horutoto Ruins.
You go on ahead.
I'll catch up with you therrre once I've finished up herrre!
Nanaa Mihgo: Ha ha ha hah...
Thank you for kindly coming all this way to carry out our little trrransaction.
This is what you're going to do...
Drrrop all the money and equipment you have on you, then get the hell out of here.
Bopa Greso: Heh heh heh...
Don't tell us this is yourrr first lesson in the school of hard knocks now, little girrrl/boy?
Cha Lebagta: Hah! Perrrhaps you should consider this as your tuition fee?
You see, we intended to use that book as bait...to lurrre unsuspecting do-gooders like yourself into our little trap.
Nanaa Mihgo: Hurry up and drop all yourrr belongings!
You don't want to keep me waiting!
Ace of Cups: The extinguished magic is our lord!
Ace of Wands: The slumbering strength is our ruler!
Ace of Swords: We have found you, Mithra!
Return the lifeforce of our leader back to us!
Cha Lebagta: Grrr...
This is bad!
Bopa Greso: What do we do, Top Cat?
We can't take on three Ace Carrrdians and expect to live!
Ace of Cups: You tricked us...
You stole from us...
Many important things, you did!
Ace of Wands: They were our lord's belongings!
They were our ruler's possessions!
Ace of Swords: It is not permissible for living fools such as you to take the property of the deceased...!
So, Mithra... Tell us where you hid our ruler's belongings!
If you do not want to join him in death, then you had best speak the truth!
Nanaa Mihgo: Alrrright, I'll tell you then...
All you wish to know is their wherrreabouts, right?
The boxes you seek are hidden in the old summoner's rrresidence in Windurst Walls...the “House of the Hero.”
Now that I've told you, you can stop chasing us around, alrrright?
Ace of Cups: ......
Ace of Wands: ......
Ace of Swords: ......
You appear to be telling the truth.
Nanaa Mihgo: Of course I'm telling the trrruth.
I know only too well that you Carrrdians can detect when someone is lying!
Ace of Swords: Then you also know that we are incapable of lying as well.
Ace of Cups: We will be returning to town...
After we have silenced you forever!
Nanaa Mihgo: Why, you double-crrrossing...
Ajido-Marujido: This time you've gone too far!
When you cannot lie, you must value your words as much as your life!
Ace of Swords: It is the Minister of the Orastery...!
Ajido-Marujido: So, “Cardians of the Dark,” you have already investigatarued me, have you?
Dare I ask what evil enterprise you are planning?
Don'taru tell me that you are after the forbidden magic as well?
That couldn't possibly be true, could it?
Ace of Swords: ......
Ajido-Marujido: Humph. They cannot lie, but they can keep their silence! I underestimatarued them!
So, now I see...
You stole that book from our Cardian friends there, eh?
But to hide it and your other spoils right under our noses in ol' Karaha-Baruha's residence...? I guess you could say that the darkestaru place is always under the candlestick.
You can leave the rest to me. Give me the key to the “House of the Hero.”
I'm talking about Karaha-Baruha's ring. I know you've gotaru it!
Nanaa Mihgo: You know that the second you lay hands on those boxes, the Carrrdians are going to go after you, don't you?
Well, I suppose if it means an end to being tailed by those crrreepy Carrrdians and you, my pesky little man, then it is a small prrrice to pay.
Ajido-Marujido: You have the gall to think I enjoy playing cat and mouse, running around after you, do you?
As for you, adventurer, get out of here while you still can.
Otherwise, you'll have a cat in hell's chance of escaping with your belongings intact.
Next stop, ol' Karaha-Baruha's residence!
I had better hurry back to Windurst Walls before it's too late...
