|After completing Olberic’s Chapter 1||Cobbleston||9,000 Leaves, Sharp Nut (M)|
You’ll find the NPC to start this Side Story by the northeastern exit in Cobbleston, who is looking for a girl named Lorie, someone who once lived in Cobbleston. There are two solutions for this quest, with both of them requiring you to travel to Noblecourt, a town used in Chapter 2 and 3 stories. The first solution requires you to Allure/Guide the Melancholy Youth to Noblecourt, so if you choose that option, make sure you do that before leaving for Noblecourt. If you’ve never been there before, Noblecourt is north of Atlasdam, so go to North Atlasdam Flats, then Western Noblecourt Flats and head east to find the town. Once you arrive, look for the area in town with the gravestones. Examine the one with Lorie’s name on it to finish.
For the other option, you don’t need to bring the youth with you, but you still need to visit Noblecourt. Look for the NPC with blue clothing not too far from the entrance, named Affable Antiquarian. You need either Therion or Tressa to Steal/Purchase Lorie’s Diary from him. Once you have it, bring it back to the youth in Cobbleston to finish the quest.
