For giving some Terra Rossa to the guard at the Lighthouse I received, along the Tome Page, a 100en Coin (he actually says Bronze Coin), I assume it's also obtained from some sea exploration quests.

Weapon Tome VI - Revisit the Ruins of the Giants

Also, I remember an event with something that was underwater and glowing, and it was very big. The game asked if I wanted to investigate it and I said yes, only to receive a message that, as my party member tried to reach it, the glowing thing sunk into the abyss (or something along the lines)...what's with that? I believe it was around South Sea D3, I'll check where it was exactly as soon as I can.

I just noticed that you listed the 100en coin in the Sea Exploration Quests but not in the Trade Items list, that's why I mentioned it.

I noticed the location of the giant flag isn't marked on the north sea map. And thanks for compiling all this, and especially for the maps!
