General Quest Dialogue

Stable Letium? It’s an important discovery; the compound has so far only been collected as a volatile, quickly decaying gas, and it’s not exactly safe to handle.

What little has been collected so far revolutionized Veltecite refining, having a stable source of both would be massive… for Korolev’s profits. Definitely worth investigating!
