You know what, Nuri? I would've done the same.
Probably! He's sitting on the right. Probably worth asking if he's okay, though.
He seems to have something in his throat - do you have anything that could help with that?
No, not the knife, you sadistic creature. Something you'd drink.
Let the fairy scholar drink from your water pouch.
He'll tell you to gather his notes - they're in his backpack.
Near the abyss - it's a bit too risky to walk up and grab it, though.
Something that will extend Geron's reach.
Everything you need is technically on this side of the abyss.
Both pieces of a broken stick can be found here - one is trapped underneath some rubble, though.
You'll need to pry it up with something strong; preferably something of equally strong material.
Grab the statue's arm, and use it on the piece of the yardstick that's sticking out. It won't 'lift' the rubble, but you'll get a piece of yardstick for your trouble.
It's broken; good thing we know someone who can help with that.
Use Nuri's 'repair' ability to fix the yardstick.
Now we just need to use the yardstick to fetch the backpack.
Looks like our reach still isnt enough. Need a hand?
You technically have three hands now.
Combine the yardstick with the statue's arm, and use that to retrieve the backpack.
Don't forget to give it to the scholar.
The scholar wrote down some directions for Nuri to follow; throw them over to her.
Fairy interference, apparently. Try throwing the directions into a bigger target.
Throw them into the wicker basket next to Nuri.
Finally out of that awful cave - take the opportunity to speak to the scholar before pressing on.
