From a Hot Treasure Hunter[edit | edit source]

Suspicious Mail 1[edit | edit source]

Mission 8-4-1
This message, from someone who claims to be the "treasure princess", is suspect.
You can apparently meet this person if you head for the plains.
Please go there and confirm the information's accuracy.

  • Enemies: Grashtrike, Hedgehog Pie

Suspicious Mail 2[edit | edit source]

Mission 8-4-2
It seems the "treasure princess" has recruited you as an ally.
You now have orders to hunt for a treasure in the ravine.
We assume you feel bad making her cry the last time. To curb that guilt, head for the ravine.

Suspicious Mail 3[edit | edit source]

Mission 8-4-3
The orders this time (from you-know-who) are to look for a treasure in the plains.
We know you're only going with her to make up for making her cry.
She's probably playing you, but if that's okay by you, head for the plains.

Suspicious Mail 4[edit | edit source]

Mission 8-4-4
Our "Treasure princess" seems quite upset, though it's obviously not her place to get mad; she's the one providing faulty information.
But if you can act the grown-up and not get cross with her, you can head for the marine caves.

Suspicious Mail 5[edit | edit source]

Mission 8-4-5
The "treasure princess" is threatening to fire you.
It must be welcome news for you, but we should make an effort to defend SOLDIER's honor.
We suggest you head for the coal mines if only for that reason.

Suspicious Mail 6[edit | edit source]

Mission 8-4-6
You have more orders, and a challenge to a duel, from our "treasure princess".
We have had quite enough of this child, so if you're as fed up with her as we are, head for the marine caves and tell her off!

Anonymous Hints[edit | edit source]

Though the claim is dubious, we should make sure.

Another note from someone (who insists on anonymity) hints a secret treasure hidden in the caves.

Treasure Info 6[edit | edit source]

Mission 8-5-6
"Anonymous" seems to have barely escaped an unannounced summon appearance.
