Three Crying Table shadows act as a sub-boss found on the 25th floor of Tartarus in Arqa Block. They impede the player's progress and must be beaten to proceed. The Crying Table later reappears as a regular enemy in the Arqa Block of Tartarus between floors 48 to 63, and as a boss on the 8th floor of Ptolomea with the Wondrous Magus and Cowardly Maya.
Crying Tables appear in the 9th and 10th Halls of the Steamy Bathhouse in the Midnight Channel. In battle, they will first set up with Marakunda and Matarukaja before attacking with Magaru. Upon being defeated, they may drop Brave Lumber. Selling 10 of these to Daidara will unlock the Bravery Vessel accesory in the shop, which will reduce a party member's chance of being afflicted with Fear.
The daughter of the model salesman (found on the second floor of the Practice Building) will ask you to find her a Reflecting Board for Quest #12: Desk Refurbishing, Part 2. After accepting her request, the Crying Table will drop a Reflecting Board upon being defeated. It will not drop Brave Lumber until the quest is completed.
