Scenario:Johann - Boundless Mystery
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Travelling to the Hall of Knowledge on Siero's request, the crew meets Johann, whose ancient Astral staff makes him a constant target of thieves. He reveals an ancient manuscript depicting a floating ruin outside Phantagrande, and requests the crew bring him along in pursuit of ancient secrets.
Sierokarte: Hello, everyone!
Vyrn: Whoa, you scared me, Siero! Talk about a knickknack attack... So, what's up?
Sierokarte: As a matter of fact, I have an emergency request for you, (Captain).
Sierokarte: I realize it's short notice, but I need you to pay a visit to the Hall of Knowledge as soon as possible!
Lyria: As soon as possible? Oh gosh, did something happen?
Sierokarte: I'm afraid I can't say much about that. You'll understand when you get there.
Sierokarte: Now off you go!
Lyria: Siero, wait! Aw, she's gone...
Vyrn: Good grief... Anyway, let's head to the Hall of Knowledge!
Lyria: So um, Siero said we'd understand what's going on when we got to the Hall of Knowledge, right?
Johann: It's been too long, my friends!
Vyrn: Oh? Why, if it isn't Mr. Scholar!
Lyria: Yay! We haven't seen you in forever, Johann!
Johann is a folklorist focused on the study of myths and traditions, along with ancient structures and languages.
Our heroes once served as his protectors for an investigation of the mysterious ruins on Lognos Island.
Vyrn: Anyway, it's good to see you again! Taking care of yourself okay?
Johann (Event) is a crew member
Johann: Hm, yes. Much has transpired since we went our separate ways.
Following their investigation of the ruins, the crew worked with Johann for a short time.
Johann: I believe it may be quite enlightening to work with someone else for a change.
Johann: My knowledge of the language of the Astrals should prove quite useful to you.
Ever since Johann went off on his own investigation, the crew has heard nothing from him.
Vyrn: Geez, you could've tried contacting us! We were worried about you!
Johann: Terribly sorry, but I was being pursued, limiting my actions considerably.
Lyria: What? Bad guys were after you? Are you okay?
Johann: I may have mentioned it before, but this staff of mine is an artifact of the Astrals. Plenty of people want to get their hands on it.
Johann: But no need to worry. I'm still in one piece, as you can see.
Vyrn: Heheh, happy to hear it!
Johann (Event) not in crew
Johann: Yes, I've traveled to countless places since then.
Vyrn: So what's up? Investigating the Hall of Knowledge again?
Johann: Not quite. I'm here less of my own volition, and more because I'm being chased.
Lyria: Chased? But why?
Johann: Perhaps I forgot to mention it, but this staff of mine is an artifact of the Astrals.
Johann: Many unscrupulous individuals want it, either to sell for a profit, or to use it for their own dastardly ends.
Vyrn: Holy smokes, it sounds like you're in some pretty serious danger!
Johann: It's a bother, I'll grant you, but there's no need to worry. I'm still in one piece, as you can see.Continue 1
Johann: Regardless of the circumstances, what matters most is the miraculous location we find ourselves standing in!
Johann: Truly a place deserving of its name!
Vyrn: Whoa, I think he's gonna start giving a speech or something...
Johann: Sierokarte helped me take refuge from my pursuers, and my time here has been quite profitable.
Johann: Through my travels thus far, I have focused on investigating ancient ruins and other remnants of the past.
Johann: But this time, by taking my time, sitting myself down, and immersing myself fully into the world of the written word, I've had a breakthrough.
Johann: The knowledge I could not obtain during my journey is mine at last!
Vyrn: Whew, that's good to hear, at least.
Johann: Indeed, there exist few books with detailed accounts of the age of myth and the Astrals.
Johann: But with the texts here, I now have a view, however incomplete, of the larger picture.
Johann: Relying on my wits, intuition and experience, I have begun to unravel the incomplete puzzle at the heart of these mysteries...
Johann: Truly, could there be a better, more appealing cause for me to dedicate myself to?
Vyrn: Um, Mr. Scholar? About that—
Johann: Take this book, for example! The writings here indicate—
Vyrn: Hey! Will you give it a rest for a second?
Johann: Eep! Is something the matter, Vyrn? Why are you shouting?
Vyrn: Do I need to write this out on a chalkboard or something?
Vyrn: You didn't seriously call us all the way out here just to tell us about your favorite books, did you?
Johann: Er, yes, pardon my overzealousness. Allow me to get straight to the point.
Johann: Please have a look at this.
Johann opens a book and shows it to the crew.
Vyrn: Hm? You want us to look at this picture?
Lyria: It looks kind of like a wall. Some sort of ancient ruin?
Johann: Correct. This appears to be a massive, floating ruin.
Vyrn: Say what? Not an island, but a ruin that floats?
Johann: I'm not entirely sure how much of what's written here is based in reality, but... yes, that's the idea.
Lyria: Wow, does something like this really exist?
Johann: This ruin appears to exist not within Phantagrande, but in some other skydom entirely.
Vyrn: Now I get it! This is one epic tale you're weaving, Johann!
Johann: The relics of the Astrals surely exist across the whole of the sky.
Johann: I want to see all of them with my own two eyes, and investigate them myself!
Vyrn: Staying cooped up indoors must've given you cabin fever.
Johann: That said, there's something I wanted to discuss with you, (Captain).
Johann: B-but I haven't even said anything yet! At least listen to what I have to say!
Choose: What is it?
Johann: I have a request for you all.Continue 2
Johann: You're all on a journey to Estalucia, the Island of the Astrals, yes?
Lyria: Right! We're gonna make it there no matter what!
Johann: Which means you're going to cross the Grim Basin into other skydoms, correct?
Vyrn: Heheh, that's right! That's why we collected all those Sky Map pieces!
Johann: In that case, please allow me to travel with you.
Johann: That seems the most expedient course of action if I wish to travel to other skydoms.
Choose: What to do, what to do...
Johann: What? Is the idea of my traveling with you... unpleasant?
Choose: I'm not really feeling it.
Johann: T-this cannot be...Continue 3
Vyrn: Hey, (Captain), do you really need to make fun of the guy?
Johann: Do you... find joy in tormenting me?
Lyria: Now, now, (Captain). Let's have him join the crew!
Choose: With open arms!
Johann: Thank you so much!
Choose: Fine, I guess...
Johann: You... guess?
Johann: Honestly, you could have just said no...
Vyrn: Aw, no need to get so down, Johann. (Captain)'s just joking.
Lyria: Right! Welcome aboard, crewmate!
Johann: In that case... Thank you, Captain.Continue 4
Johann: I will do everything I can to use the knowledge I've accumulated from my travels to the benefit of the crew.
Vyrn: Ha ha, sounds like you're gonna be one handy bookworm!
And so, Johann, the Astral-bound folklorist, joins the crew.
His knowledge will doubtless prove useful to the crew in their coming adventures.
