Stranded Motorists

You may happen to come across some poor souls that have broken down on the side of the road during your adventures. Talking to them will start up a new sidequest, where your only objective is to return to them with a Repair Kit. These items can be bought at a couple of merchants in the game, but if you wait until Chapter 3, you will be able to purchase them from your own Regalia’s shop. They cost 100 gil each and there’s a total of 30 Broken Down Car quests in the game, 10 in each region (Leide, Duscae and Cleigne).

The majority of the people in trouble are found along the roads, which are marked in green and yellow on your map, and can be found during both the day and night. A lot of them have prerequisites, usually completing a previous Broken Down Car quest, but some aren’t available until later chapters of the main story. By the time you reach Chapter 9, all of the following quests will be unlocked for you.

After a years-long cold war between the Kingdom of Lucis and the empire of Niflheim over the world's last crystal, an armistice is finally agreed upon. As part of the peace treaty, the heir to the Lucian throne Noctis Lucis Caelum is to marry Lady Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, an oracle from the imperial province of Tenebrae. After Noctis sets out to meet his betrothed, the treaty collapses. Merely a ruse to bring down the magical barrier protecting Lucis, Niflheim invades and takes the kingdom and the crystal for itself. With the treaty in tatters and his father and betrothed believed dead, Noctis must rely on his own tenacity and the support of his band of loyal followers to get him through what is to come.
