There are no journal entries for this quest.
Maronne: Greetings, adventurer, and welcome to the wellspring of Ul'dahn fashion. Maronne: From humble thread, our peerless artisans weave wonders—dreams in fabric form. Maronne: We are renowned as Eorzea's finest purveyors of quality textiles, and as her foremost arbiters of style. Maronne: Needless to say, such renown was not won without effort. Ours is a tremendously demanding profession, you see...but also a highly rewarding one. It is little wonder that so many adventurers have set their hearts upon joining us. Might you be one of them?
Join the Weavers' Guild?
Maronne: Oh. What a pity. Maronne: Well, should you be seized by an urgent need to weave, I will be happy to assist you.
Maronne: Ah! I thought as much! Then I'm sure you're eager to learn all about our illustrious history. Maronne: As I'm sure you know, Thanalan can be a perilous place, its vast deserts being wont to punish the unprepared. While a menagerie of ferocious beasts stalk the sands, the greatest foe is, of course, the midday sun. Maronne: And so, ever since man first set foot in this region, he has favored light, flowing fabrics that shield him from the sun's rays while allowing his skin to breathe. Maronne: Of course, Ul'dahns have ever been a people of taste, and demand for more extravagant designs spurred innovation, resulting in textile goods whose appeal extended far beyond our borders. Maronne: Merchants had little trouble selling Ul'dahn fabrics in foreign markets, so great was their reputation for beauty and quality. Maronne: And when traders from those same markets sought to peddle their lesser products in Thanalan... Maronne: Well...it gave us little cause for concern. Maronne: Sunsilk Tapestries is synonymous with the textile trade in Ul'dah, you see. Those who come here hoping to peddle cheap rags swiftly learn the price of doing business in our territory. Maronne: Wiser men and women with an interest in our trade choose instead to join the guild, which the company generously operates for the betterment of Ul'dahn society. Maronne: We offer our members the tools and techniques needed to become successful. And should they prove themselves especially skilled, they may even be offered direct employment as Sunsilk weavers! Maronne: Just imagine, adventurer—your designs could one day dictate the course of Ul'dahn fashion! Maronne: If you desire such fame and influence, then you might be granted a place with us... Maronne: Provided that you are willing to embrace hard work. Maronne: To ensure candidates can endure the rigors of our profession, our guildmaster has taken it upon himself to evaluate each one personally. Maronne: When you are ready to submit yourself to his rigorous scrutiny, say the word.
