- Start the quest by entering the post office
NieR walks in on the lighthouse lady and the postman arguing about her lighthouse duties. He overhears their conversation
"Lighthouse lady: But it's the first request I've made in ages! How dare you deny it!
Postman: You can't leave! Who's going to tend the lighthouse!?
Lighthouse lady: How much longer will you force me to toil here? I must go see him! I need to board a ship as soon as possible!
Postman: No way, lady. It's back to work for you! Now get going! "
NieR speaks to the postman and the postman wants him to talk some sense into her.
- Visit the lady at the lighthouse after the conversation with the postman
NieR examines the room and finds out she has the Black Scrawl. The lighthouse lady wakes up and aggressively tells NieR not to tell anyone. She doesn't fear death and is tired of being alone. She talks about her one regret. She wants to see her love one last time.
Lighthouse lady "I've spent 50 years in the lighthouse, working and working for these people, and now they won't let me leave! I just want to see him! I want to board the ship that will take me to him! O, cruel world..."
NieR's new objective is to convince the villagers to let her go, starting with the postman
- Return to the Post office and speak to the postman
Despite him being made aware of her condition, he continues to deny the request to let her go. Grimoire Weiss suggests returning, later on, he has a feeling they might discover something.
- Go back to check on the postman
NieR catches him in the middle of writing something. Grimoire Weiss figures out that the lady's letters are postmarked only at this office, but not for anyone else. Her lover's letters were local and not in a faraway land. The postman will invite them both to the backroom.
- Follow the postman to the backroom
- Clear the way to the back and inspect the letters
- Return to the postman and speak to him
They find that the lighthouse lady's letters had been all undelivered and that her lover was actually already dead, but someone had still been writing her letters. The postman admits he and the whole town had been writing her letters in place of her lover to continue giving her hope. The whole thing had started 50 years before with his father. The postman offers a new letter to deliver to her.
Postman:" It says that her love is coming, but that the journey will be long. ... It tells her to wait."
The postman leaves the decision to tell her to NieR.
- Return to the lighthouse, go up and speak to the Lighthouse Lady again
NieR will have two options
- Give her the letter and perpetuate the lie
- Tell her that her lover is dead
Give her the letter and perpetuate the lie
will follow with this response
Lighthouse Lady: Oh, he's written me a letter! Ah, wonderful, wonderful...
Grimoire Weiss: Perhaps we should leave you alone with your letter.
Lighthouse Lady: Oh, life is so wonderful... And could you please thank that nice postman when you see him?
Nier: ...All right.
Tell her that her lover is dead
will follow with this response
Nier: Your love didn't write this letter.
Lighthouse Lady: Oh, posh! It's his handwriting! And I recognize the stationery, too!
Grimoire Weiss: That which you recognize comes from the town's postman and his father. Not from your beloved.
Lighthouse Lady: Are you saying those two idiots wrote all these letters? But... but why?
Grimoire Weiss: Your lover perished long years ago, and they had not the heart to tell you. Thus, the charade.
Lighthouse Lady: Oh...
Lighthouse Lady: You don't have to apologize. To tell you the truth, part of me had suspected something like this. But it's hard to hear a secret thought finally spoken aloud. I... I think I should be alone for a while.
Lighthouse Lady: But I want to ask you a favor. You must forget we ever had this conversation. The entire town has worked on this story, and they did so to make me happy. I don't want their hard work to go to waste, so I will carry on as if I am none the wiser.
Grimoire Weiss: As you wish.
Lighthouse Lady: Please tell the postman... thank you.
Nier: We will.
This will conclude the quest, but she asks that you tell the postman thank you.
This will prompt the quest Closure.
