Final Fantasy IX Walkthrough - Qu's Marsh
Once here, run north, and you'll find the two Moogles whom you've
learned much about the game from a few ATEs earlier. Speak to them to
learn where the Grotto is (they say it's further north), and you can
also re-learn the stuff they taught you earlier. After speaking with
them, continue north, through the tall grass, and into the area where a
Qu is trying to catch a frog. Catch a frog yourself by standing near
one, then pressing "X" to catch it. Now speak with Qu, and name "it".
Watch the cut-scene, and agree to let him join you and your party.
Watch the rest of the cut-scenes to advance the story, then you can
play a small, frog-catching mini-game here. Simply catch as many frogs
as you can, and try to get the Gold Frog too. Soon, someone will enter,
and give you some Ore for catching 2 Frogs. If you catch 5 Frogs, Quale
will enter and give you some Ether. The basic rundown in as follows:
2 Frogs: Ore
5 Frogs: Ether
9 Frogs: Silk Robe
When you're all done, exit the Marsh, and back onto the World Map. Head
north some more, and you'll find Gizamaluke's Grotto to your left, in
the side of a mountain.
