Long time no see, adventurers!

It's me, Kupolette, nomad moogle extraordinaire, here to bring word that the Adventurer Appreciation Campaign is once again upon us, kupopo!

This year, we moogles have dug deep to deliver delightful difts—uh, gifts to show our objects of overt adulation—adventurers, obviously—our appreciation for their tireless efforts in making Vana'diel a better place for one and all. And as has become the institution, the M.H.M.U. has prepared a record of all your adventuring escapades for you to peruse with puffed-up pride, kupo!

Now here's a piece of news that should set your heart astir: unearthing the eleven mog tablets during the festivities will unleash all the Super Kupowers! That's right, every single one, kupo! Astute adventurers may notice that this phenomenon is occurring exactly one year after the fabled artifacts first resurfaced. Could it be that—*gasp!*—the tablets, too, are sharing in our joy? Whatever the truth may be, the speculation has aroused academic ardor within the moogle community, kupo.

And what would an Adventurer Appreciation Campaign be without—you guessed it!—the reading of congratulatory letters? A considerable quantity of letters has been sent in from all over Vana'diel by various personages of prestige. Allow me to recite a select few this instant, kupo. Ahem!

Our first letter comes to us from Her Royal Highness Princess Claidie of the Kingdom of San d'Oria, kupo!

Esteemed adventurers of Vana'diel. I would like to express to you my deepest feelings of gratitude on this momentous occasion. Your existence is as a pair of beating wings that lift our hearts to greater heights. Truly, you are the pride and joy of all children of Altana. Ever do I pray for your continued health and success.

Ah, such a cordial and earnest expression of affection from the lovely Princess Claidie. Puts me in mind of a kind and caring older sister, she does, kupo!

Now, moving on to the next letter...

Respected adventurers. Please accept my humblest apologies for Naji's indiscretions.

Hmm? What a weird way to start a letter, kupo. Who could this be from? Ah, Mythril Musketeer Ayame of the Republic of Bastok! She was alluding to the message her quirky colleague Naji sent us last year. How very thoughtful of her, kupo. Anyway, back to the rest of the letter.

A sheathed blade is a symbol of peace. Yet even such a blade must stand ever ready to be drawn, lest it forever be bereft of its scabbard. Let us fight as one, adventurers and musketeers alike, for the continued peace and prosperity of the land.

A message that demonstrates dignity and decorum well beyond her years! Ayame truly deserves the honor of being the Mythril Musketeers' youngest-ever inductee, kupo.

Hmm, I couldn't help but notice that letters from the ladies seem to be the prevailing trend this year, kupo. Let's see who sends the next one... O-hohohohoho! Uwaaaaaah, kupo! Th-the sender of this letter requires absolutely no introduction: Doctor Shantotto! *Gulp*

Tell me, by whose leave do you presume to celebrate? Think twice before raising a fuss, lest you make me irate. But a word of praise I shall spare you who have remained unfazed in the face of a curse that leaves many debilitated and dazed. Now off you go, and give no less than your absolute best, if with all limbs attached you wish to survive my future tests!

Such a sumptuously sweet message...by the good doctor's sadistic standards, that is, kupo.

As tremendously touching as that last letter was, I think I'll push my luck and see if we can end on an even higher note.

Frail though your mortal flesh may be, within it burns a fiery spirit worthy of my respect. With great ardency do I await the glorious day your kind and I shall join together once more in the spilling of infidel blood. For as the sun and the moon must converge in an ecliptic dance, so too are our fates intertwined...

Drat, the sender's name is partly obscured and I can't quite make it out, kupo. Areu... Areuh...

Aaah! The entire letter was penned on parchment so brittle, it crumbled to bits and pieces in my little hands, kupo! *Sigh* I suppose we'll never know who the message is from...

Master! I'd like to take this opportunity to make known the collective sentiments of all mooglekind, kupo. My epistolary expertise may pale in comparison to the writers of these letters, but the gratitude we moogles bear toward adventurers is no less genuine.

Although our small size and timid temperament prevent us from aiding you in battle, we moogles will always be there to serve our strong and stout-hearted masters to the fullest extent our abilities allow, kupo! Happy 8th Vana'versary!

6 Letters from the Moogle
# May 20 2010 at 9:36 PM Rating: Decent
Depending on which country you hail from, you must speak to the Moogle to recieve your Dinner jacket, and Dinner hose. The Moogles can be found at the following locations:

* Southern San d'Oria (I-8)
* Bastok Markets (F-8)
* Windurst Waters (North) (F-9)

After receiving the jacket and hose from the Moogle, speak with him once again and he will mention that there were supposed to be another six letters. With the three from the heads of the major countries making a total of nine. From there you need to visit the various nation councils and receive the missing letter key items.

Talk to the following individuals while wearing the Dinner Suit: You must talk to Halver from San d'Oria, Naji from Bastok, and Zubaba from Windurst twice in order to be able to get the other three letters.

* This is essentially 3 pairs of cutscenes\letters, which can be done in any order. But each pair is ordered, so you have to speak with Halver to receive the Maat letter. So, you can't do Maat first.
* Head to the Metalworks and speak to Naji at (J-8) to receive a Letter from Naji. Speak to Naji twice and he will mention another letter.
* After receiving Naji's letter, head to Tavnazian Safehold and speak to Despachiaire at (K-10), top floor, to receive a Letter from Despachiaire.
* Head to the Chateau d'Oraguille and speak to Halver at (I-9) to receive a Letter from Halver. Speak to Halver twice and he will say something about departing for the duchy to seek counsel... Continue on to Maat.
* After receiving Halver's letter, head to Ru'Lude Gardens and speak to Maat at (H-5) to receive Letter from Maat.
o Picking up a Rolanberry from an NPC in Jeuno before going to Heavens Tower is recommended, if you are not from Windurst
* Head to the Heavens Tower and speak to Zubaba on the second floor to receive a Letter from Zubaba. Remember to talk to Zubaba again, she will mention something is astir in Kazham.
o If you are a Non-Windurstian, trade a Rolanberry to Kupipi to receive a Letter from Zubaba. You do not need to speak to her after trading the Rolanberry and receiving the Letter.
o After receiving Zubaba's letter, head to Kazham and speak to Jakoh Wahcondalo at (J-9) to receive a Letter from Jakoh Wahcondalo.

After receiving all 9 letters, head back to a moogle in Southern San d'Oria, Windurst Waters, or Bastok Markets who handed you your Dinner Suit to receive your Moggiebag.
