Umbra brings Noctis the notebook.

After Cindy Aurum repairs the party's car, she asks them to deliver something to Longwythe Rest Area. The party complies, and while at the outpost meet Umbra delivering Lunafreya's notebook to Noctis. He reads the message and writes his own in return, and sends Umbra on his way. Noctis's friends wonder how Umbra always finds them no matter where they are, and of what Noctis and Lunafreya correspond about, but he doesn't say.

Noctis and Prompto have a chance to talk by the the motel sign when they stay at the outpost, where Prompto reveals his insecurities of being part of the former's retinue.

After mysterious earthquakes begin to plague the area, Longwythe's Peak is revealed to be the sleeping adamantoise about to awaken. The friends Noctis has made on the Lucian outlands congregate at the Crow's Nest Diner at Longwythe Rest Area to support him in taking on the monster.

After the long night falls the outpost is abandoned. Noctis and Talcott Hester drive through the dark outpost ten years later while on their way to Hammerhead.

Crow's Nest is a fast food restaurant chain in Lucis. Its diner at Longwythe serves the same menu as the other diners (the Original Crow's Nest in Old Lestallum has a special menu item). The manager acts as a tipster for the area, telling the party of local landmarks and procurement points and treasures, as well as offering hunts (see below). The player can play Justice Monsters Five here and listen to the radio.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Optional scenes[edit | edit source]

Prompto[edit | edit source]

Optional scene.

Staying at the motel from Chapter 2 onwards can trigger a scene between Noctis and Prompto when it is not raining where Prompto talks about his misgivings of being part of Noctis's retinue when he doesn't feel accomplished enough. The player's dialogue choices steer the conversation. Talking to Prompto yields the Pop filter for photos.

If the player sends Prompto away at the first dialogue option, he will try to initiate the conversation again when the player stays at a motel another time.

Adamantoise hunt[edit | edit source]

14_14_friends_Adamantoise_quest_2_ending

14 14 friends Adamantoise quest 2 ending

All possible NPCs at the diner.

The Crow's Nest Diner at the Longwythe Rest Area becomes the gathering place for the acquaintances Noctis has made on his travels after the hunt for adamantoise. If the player talks to Dave, he will take the player to the diner where up to 14 non-playable characters congratulate Noctis's party and yield an Oracle Ascension Coin each. How many people attend depends on how many quest-givers the player has met. The people the party has befriended along their journey always appear, but for the others the player needs to accept a quest from them, besides Kimya, who appears if the player does all of Dave's quests.

The NPCs who can appear are:

Randolph is the only recurring quest-giver who doesn't make an appearance.

Gone Hunting[edit | edit source]

Gone Hunting.

David Auburnbrie appears by the Three Z's Motel and asks Noctis and his friends to find a lost dog tag in the wilderness northeast of the outpost. Talking to the tipster at Crow's Nest Diner may unveil its exact location. After the quest is finished, Dave next heads to the Prairie Outpost.
