“Lines of Sand” is a two-part questline in Final Fantasy 16 where you are tasked to protect villages from outlaws and bandits.

You can start Lines of Sand I by speaking with L’ubor at the Dalimil Inn after you have completed the “Across the Narrow” story quest. Speak with him again afterward to start Lines of Sand II once you are doing the main story quest, Back to Their Origin.

Both quests have the same objectives and take place in the same Dhalmekian Republic region. The only difference is that you have to protect a village from the League of Outlaws in the first quest and from the Akashic Bandits in the second one.
