I should finish the three story stone pagoda fast.

Final Reward::


[Asadal]
He left his homeland and came to Bulguksa to build a Buddhist monument. For 3 years, the monument has been under construction and thus he has been unable to leave. He remains so fixated on completing the monument that he does not even notice his restless wife who traveled so far to see him. Asanyo's beloved husband.
Bulguksa Quest
Location: Bulguksa - Toham-san Atelier

1.A Warrior By Any Means Necessary...

Ah, a visitor.
Nice to meet you. I am [Asadal] of Baekje.
I am in charge of building the three story stone pagoda here.

However, these days...
Strange occurrances keep happening around us that interrupt our work and hinder our progress.
I'm getting worried, because I have to hurry and finish the stone pagoda as soon as possible so I can return to my darling [Asanyo], who is waiting for me at Sabi...
~
What? You will help us?
But the strange crawling creatures in this area won't be easy to deal with.
If you are not equipped with a strong weapon, you can lose your life before you even go near the area.
If you are going to go, please come back to me after you and your companions all have equipped strong weapons.
Mission: Equip [Weapon]: [9] (Current: 9)
Oh... you all look very sturdy.
Since you all appear powerful enough, I'm beginning to believe that you can do this job.
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 400,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

2.The Python's Scale

When I first came here 3 years ago, none of these creatures were here...
Now they are crawling all over the place.
It doesn't seem like they are of this world, but rather from a spiritual realm.
...
Do you believe me?
I don't know whether or not you believe what I'm saying, but people from the outside world never would.
If there was some sort of evidence...
The only person who would believe me without doubt would be my beloved Asanyo.
~
Oh... You will look for some evidence?
...
Then can you gather [Python Scales] by defeating the creatures roaming outside? We can use them as evidence.
If you do this for me, I'll never forget this favor.
HINT: You can find the Pythons at the Toham-san Atelier.
Mission: Python Scale x30
Thank you so much.
Now I have the evidence to support my statements.
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

3.Report About a Strange Situation

When I first came here,
all I wanted was to build a magnificent tower, receive a nice payment, and head home to the comfort of my beloved wife.
Before I even knew it, 3 years had passed by.
My wife back home must really miss me...
~
This scroll details my current predicament.
Please deliver this to Mr. [Kim Dae Sung] at the [Lotus Flower Garden].
Inside the scroll, I've also put a scale from the pythons in the hope that he will believe me. I beg you. Please do this for me.
Mission:
How was he?
Does he believe my story?
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

4.The Craftsman's Tool 1

What? Mr. Kim believes me wholeheartedly?
...
That is surprising. A normal person would usually regard the message as nonsense, but to believe me without question is... unbelievable...
It seems like he must be a man of great virtue.
I am a bit envious of the Silla dynasty, that they possess such a great man.
...
Anyway, I guess all I can do now is devote myself to my work.
~
But my tools have been heavily damaged...
I'm having a tough time because I don't think they are salvageable.
Can you please go to the nearest market and get me some [Hammers [IV]?
Mission: Hammer [IV] x50
Oh. You brought them.
Thank you very much.
Reward:
  • Experience: 600,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

5.The Craftsman's Tool 2

A hammer is a necessary tool for a stonemason like me.
But not all hammers are the same. The shape, quality, and size all impact the effective value of the hammer.
The ones you brought me are all top quality.
I will use them well.
~
But... even though I have the hammers I need...
It's very uncomfortable to not have a [Toolbox], which I heavily rely on. Those darn pythons destroyed mine.
I have to finish this job as fast as I can in order to get back to [Asanyo]...
Ah... it'd be great if you can get me an [Artisan's Toolbox] from somewhere...
(Hint: [My Info] -> [Skills] -> Quest Crafting.)
Mission: Craft [Artisan's Toolbox] x10
Thank you.
I was most inconvenienced by not having this item...
Reward:
  • Experience: 1,000,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

6.The Honor of a Craftsman

I hold the title of best stonemason in Baekje.
I don't just do simple carvings. I put my soul into each and every piece I work on.
I believe that a true craftsman puts his soul into his work.
~
Actually, there are some other craftsmen who are considered the best, like me.
They are, without question, very famous and renowned in certain countries.
Would you like to see those craftsmen's names?
HINT: Community - Artisan - Search
Mission: Open [Artisans] in [Community]
Our fields are different, but they are truly the best craftsmen in the world.
I hope for the day that the crafting trade will be considered a great profession.
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 400,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

7.Continued Construction

Ever since the old days, craftsmen have been considered beneath scholars and soldiers.
There are times when society looks down upon us.
Still... I believe the day that craftsmen will get recognition will come.
Then, my child will look upon me and be filled with pride.
~
Please return to Mr. [Kim Dae Sung] now.
Also, please tell him that I will finish my work no matter what.
Mission: Talk to [Kim Dae Sung]
You have returned.
What did Mr. [Kim Dae Sung] say?
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 400,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

8.Noisy Bird Calls

Haha. I see.
I knew that Mr. [Kim Dae Sung] would believe in me.
There is a saying that states 'a scholar gives up his life for someone who believes in him'...
Even if I'm not a scholar, I would like to give it my all for someone who believes in me.
But...
Recently, there have been a lot of hardships in building the stone pagoda.
...
What kind of hardships?
Well... It's kind of hard to explain...
~
Actually...
Whenever I am about to work, I can hear some strange bird noises coming from the [Seokgulam Garden].
This peircing sound keeps me up at night... It's troublesome.
Can you please find out what kind of bird it is by checking out the [Garden]?
You came back.
I'm very curious to find out what kind of bird gives off that kind of cry.
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

9.The Poor Craftsman

It wasn't just a regular bird? A bird that takes you to the afterlife?
...
Hm... It was an... discomforting, upsetting noise that they gave off.
Their cries had a sad, ominous tone.
It's funny how those birdcalls reminded me of my wife, [Asanyo].
It's already been three years since I left my hometown.
I wonder if she is doing okay.
~
She married me at a young age, and I've never been able to give her the things she deserves in life.
I have a big favor to ask you... Can you please sell this spear to someone?
With the money, I would like to buy a small present for [Asanyo].
There is a person named [Columbus] to the west...
He is a merchant that buys armaments for gold. Please, I beg you.
Mission: Sell any items to [Columbus] x1
Ah... you have returned.
I'm sorry that you had to travel so far for my sake.
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

10.Ominous Indication

Ah, please keep the money that you received for selling the spear.
While you were gone, Mr. [Kim Dae Sung] sent a servant to pay me my wage.
Now... I can face Asanyo without shame.
When I return to my hometown, I will buy a new house. Wouldn't that make Asanyo happy?
That spear I gave you a while ago was also given to me as a gift by a traveler some time ago...
Selling that item weighed heavily on my conscience...
By the way, while you were gone,
the noise from those birds became even louder.
I can't concentrate on my work.
This ominous feeling is too distracting.
~
At this rate, I won't be able to concentrate on my work at all.
Would you do something about those birds?
And please gather some [Strange Feathers] as proof.
Mission: Strange Feather x20
Thank you.
Now I can finally focus on my work. My heart feels less burdened.
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

11.Missed Wife

I want to finish my work quickly so I can go comfort my wife.
She's gone through so much...
You seem like you have something to tell me whenever I bring up my wife...
Is there something you want to say?

~
Hm, strange. It seems like you're hiding something from me.
Well, alright. That's fine.
Please tell Mr. [Kim Dae Sung] that I am happy after receiving my wages.
Things should go smoothly from here on out. Haha.
Mission: Talk to [Kim Dae Sung]
Oh...
That was pretty fast.
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 400,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

12.My Beloved Wife

What did you say?
My wife is at Seorabul?
You mean...
Are you saying that she is here in [Bulguksa]?
~
Are you sure? Maybe you're mistaken?
The person that is waiting for me...
Can you tell me what her name is?
Mission: Answer [My Beloved Wife] Question => Asanyo
You're right. [Asanyo].
That's my wife's name.
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 500,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

13.Sign of One's Promise

Oh... [Asanyo].
I left you alone for too long.
Please forgive me.
~
Please, deliver this [Jade Ring] to my beloved on my behalf.
I've longed to give this to her as a present. It's something I bought with the money I saved here.
If you give her this, she will know that it is from me. Please tell her that I have never stopped loving her.
Mission:
So?
Was she happy?
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 400,000
  • Item: Jade Ring x1
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

14.The Stone Pagoda Master

Maybe... I've been too cruel to her.
I only looked forward...
I was so focused on achieving my goals that I failed to see how lonely my wife must have been.
~
However, I am the best stonemason in Baekje.
I am the craftsman who is able to put life and soul into the stone.
Warrior, do you know my name? What is it?
Mission: Answer [The Stone Pagoda Master] Question => Asadal
That's right.
I am unrivaled in Baekje.
No, in all of Korea. I am [Asadal], the best stonemason in the land.
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

15.The Stonemason's Promise 1

When I first came here, on the request to build this pagoda...
I swore that I would not go back until I finished it.
Whatever hardships there may be...
Whatever trials and tribulations I must pass...
I was determined to finish this project.
Warrior,
Please help me keep my oath.
Please help me so that I can meet my wife with honor.

~
I need to lay the foundations for the tower were the [Stone Pagoda] is.
However, there are horrifying guardians protecting that place. It's hard to gain entry.
The [Guardian of the North] prevents anyone else from approaching that area. Can you please defeat him for me?
[TIP] If you defeat the [Guardian of the South] before defeating any other guardians, the monsters will flee. Defeat the monsters strategically in the order that the quest directs.
Mission: Kill [Guardian of the North] x1
You did it.
You're a great warrior!
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

16.The Stonemason's Promise 2

I am a stonemason.
I put my honor and life on the line for my work.
~
Please return to [Kim Dae Sung].
Also, please tell him that I will finish this stone pagoda no matter what happens.
Mission: Talk to [Kim Dae Sung]
So you returned.
I'm nearly finished with my work.
Haha.
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 400,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

17.Chosen Warrior 1

I am a craftsman.
Ever since I was born, all I've done is build this stone monument piece by piece.
Perhaps... the strength you use to fight is similar to my own.
~
My task is coming to an end.
You've worked hard, as well. Why don't you sit and rest for a while?
Mission: Sit (Shortcut X)
That's much better, isn't it? Now, where were we...
Reward:
  • Experience: 1,500,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

18.Chosen Warrior 2

Oh no...
It looks like you will have to wait a little bit more...
~
Ah! That's right.
If you do well in competition, you are rewarded with many gold and silver coins.
[Kim Man Duck] and several others will trade gold for such coins...
Try trading one and come back to me.
I'll try to hurry on my part of the operation.
HINT: Kim Man Duck is near Pusan.
Mission: Sell an item to a Merchant x1
You have already returned.
I haven't finished my work yet...
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

19.An Ominous Feeling

This may sound like an excuse, but...
There is a reason why the work has been a little hard for me.
While I was working, I heard a strange noise. So I went into the [Kakyamuni Buddha's Grotto] to look inside.
...
My heart nearly stopped when I looked inside...
What I saw there were [Apostles of Death].
You would probably find that hard to believe, but...
I saw them with my own two eyes.
I was so surprised that I started screaming 'God save me' as I ran away. Since that day, I can't seem to concentrate on my job.
It's not simply because I was scared stiff, but because of this ominous feeling that I've had since.
I haven't been able to shake off the feeling that someone close to me will dissapear forever.
~
Please... help me so that this weight will be lifted from my heart...
Can you venture into the [Kakyamuni Buddha's Grotto] and chase away the [Lost Apostles of Death]?
Please do me this favor.
Mission: Kill [Lost Apostle of Death] x25
You have returned!
Thank you so much.
Reward:
My darling Asanyo is...
the most beautiful woman in Baekje.

20.One Wish

If... I only had one wish...
It would be that I could return home with [Asanyo]...
And leave behind all these hardships we had to endure so that we can live happily ever after.
I don't need any money, power, or glory.
I believe a man must know how to put his woman first no matter what.
That is what makes a real man.
The pagoda is almost complete.
This three story pagoda will be like nothing you've ever seen.
This tower... It will absorb the sun's rays and bask itself in light so that there won't be a single trace of shadow anywhere.
~
In other words, this structure will ensure that not even a sliver of a shadow will exist here.
This structure will be built to absolute perfection.
Now, please return to Mr. [Kim Dae Sung] and tell him that the tower is nearly complete.
For the many things you have helped me with so far, I thank you.
Mission: Talk to [Kim Dae Sung]
