Land of Our Forebears is a locked side-quest available in the Wildlands area of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, meaning that you can play it, only if you complete several additional side-quests.
Land of Our Forebears is also a 3-stars quest, meaning that it has a high payout, allowing you to earn more money.
Additionally, to finish Land of Our Forebears you will have to spend a lot of time; therefore, try to start it when you have the maximum number of EP Points, and follow all steps below to save as much time as possible.
Description: “The wandering man was in fact Cole, Sarala’s father, who faked his own death to force Sarala to become more independent. Hearing the story, Lightning is reminded of another man she has met – the grumpy old farmer over at the Research Camp. Didn’t he seem to have a special interest in Sarala and her father.”
Location: The Wildlands
Requirements: Complete A Father’s Request side quest, and The Old Man and the Field. Start at 9 AM and finish it before 10 PM
Rewards: 3500 Gil, Maximum HP + 150, Strength + 12, Magic + 10, Pink-rimmed Glasses Adornment
While you may not realize, you will start working on Land of Our Forebears side-quest early in the game, while playing other side-quests.
The objective in Land of Our Forebears is to reunite Sarala’s family which was divided, and eventually help them meet.
This means that first of all you have to help Sarala find out what happened to her father, by completing A Father’s Request.
Once you finish it, you must focus on finishing The Old Man and the Field, by talking to the Stubborn Old Man at the Research Camp in Eremite Plains. After you meet all characters involved in these two side-quests, it is time to set up a meeting.
Therefore, visit Aryas Village, but you have to do it between 9 AM and 10 PM. When you get to Aryas Village, check the stand of Chef Aryas (A Taste of the Past side-quest) and you will automatically trigger a cutscene during which, you will find who the Wandering Man with the strange pink glasses really is.
As the events continue to unfold during the cutscene, Cole, will ask you to convince his father and his daughter to join the meeting in Aryas; so, first you will have to talk to the Stubborn Old Man at the Research Camp, and then to Sarala at Canopus Farms.
Note: The fastest way to complete the next objective is to teleport to both locations, and then back to Aryas Village. These actions will cost you 6 EP points. Make sure you follow the exact order as the one mentioned above. First go to the Research Camp and then pay a visit to Sarala.
Once you return to Aryas Village, approach the Chef’s restaurant and the NPCs will follow you shortly, triggering the final cutscene of the quest.
