~ Tarlae

Travel Writer is a Sidequest obtainable by Tarlae when initially boarding the Narwhal. After leaving the Narwhal, she can be found in a house in Nanga. She asks the player to travel around the Archipelago to be her "eyes and hands" on their journey, gathering in-depth information about the interesting places on each island. Because she broke her leg crashing into a coral reef while trying to learn how to surf in the Sillaro River, she cannot go herself. She nearly drowned. While completing her tasks, she will reward the player with each task, giving a variety of useful items.


Talk to Tarlae aboard the deck of the Narwhal (during your first airship journey only) or in her house in Nanga. Just head South and find her watching TV on her couch in the small community of 3 houses. (She is in the rightmost.).


  1. Report to Tarlae about Deniz.
    • Meet Tarlae inside their house in the Nanga residential quarter. Any of the chat options are acceptable. You receive a Lure for completing this step.
  2. Inform Tarlae about Omninesia.
    • You will receive a Hand Fan for describing Omninesia.
    • You cannot get credit for this step immediately after landing in Nanga, you must explore more first.
  3. Report to Tarlae when you visit another island
  4. Inform Tarlae about Tucma and Kisiwa.
    • You will receive a Coat for describing Tucma.
    • You will receive 2500 Pansun for describing Kisiwa.
  5. Report to Tarlae about Cipanku.
  6. Inform Tarlae about Arbury.


  • The book that Tarlae is writing is called "Tarlae's Guide to the Airborne Archipelago". If you talk to her again after completing the quest, she offers to write a book called "Memories of a Backpacking Tamer" which is of course, inspired by your own story.
