Hey, have you heard of Abyss? I was absolutely not eavesdropping on someone else when I heard the name, and I have to believe there's an interesting story there! Have you got some time to look into it, Professor?
Investigate the stories about Abyss. Maybe the traveling merchants who come and go know something about the place...
  1. Collect information about Abyss.
  2. Report to Claude.
Abyss... A dangerous area below Garreg Mach that folks tend to avoid... I can't believe such a place has existed right under our noses! Maybe one day I can help the whole story see the light of day.
