I am playing my second-ever playthrough (the first was during 1.0), and went a little off-sequence prior to going to Neketaka. Part of this entailed dealing with the Poko Kohara area before receiving either Terms of Trade or the Storms of Poko Kohara quests from questgivers. In my quest log, I show having completed The Storms of Poko Kohara. However, I neither see Terms of Trade nor can I pick it up. I did recruit Vektor after clearing Poko Kohara, and I gave Beza's pages to the Ranga and then took them back. I figured at some point after going to the Queen, the Director would be accessible and I would be able to progress with the VTC quests, but unfortunately this is not the case. The Director's room is still guarded (and empty, I found after pissing off the whole 2nd floor to take a peek).
I tried to upload my save, but the file is too large. Let me know if it would help!
