Check Out the Challenging Greendale Race

morgana

So, you are Rita, huh? I’ve heard about you.

Hmpf.

Believe me, you’re not ready for the challenging Greendale race.

However, Angus and Idun have told me you’re allowed to enter the competition, so what am I to do?

Alright. Check it out if you like. Finish the race, show me you can ride. Do that, and I’ll let you do it for real.

…What are you waiting for?

Objectives: Finish the race.

This track is probably one of the most challenging ones in the game currently. It took me at least four or five attempts the first time, so be sure to take your time and be careful to make it through the checkpoints and finish the race.

morgana

So you eventually finished.

Hmpf.

Beginner’s luck.

But I hold true to my word. Come back if you want to enter the competition for real. Now, get lost.

Quest completed

You can now run the Challenging Greendale Race as a daily race.

There is a new pet shop opening in Jarlaheim, across from Gavin’s place. Speak to the owner, Amelia.

New Friendship

amelia

Hi there, are you Rita? Cool! So awesome that you came by.

I’m Amelia, and I work here at Pet Shop Girls. I see to it that all the cute animals are comfortable and have everything they need!

I’m usually very busy with our webpage and web shop, so I’m looking for someone to help me take care of the shaggy, little fur balls.

You seem like a fun girl, I’m sure we’ll be good friends as well!

By the way, you have a beautiful horse! Is it a Burma? Or, hold on, that’s a cat. Truth be told, I know absolutely NOTHING about horses, I just know they’re fun to ride. But nothing else, so I think you’ll have to teach me a thing or two about horses, else I’ll be mixing horses with toasters… Not that toasters and horses look alike at all, but oh well!

Your horse is called Summerblaze, you say? That’s a nice name. I would never be able to think of such a cool name for my dog. Suffice to say his names is Ernst, hehe…

Objectives: Talk to Amelia about how you can help her with Pet Shop Girls.

There is lots of things to be done!

amelia

So here’s the thing: I need some help around the store, and I would also love to get to know you a little better while we’re at it.

Sounds like a good idea? Perfect, let’s get going!

______________

Out of Cats

amelia

I need to ask a favor of you, Rita.

A woman came by and bought ALL our cats! We don’t have any left! That woman must really love cats, and I’m sure the small mousers will be nuts about living with her.

However, my store is so silent and lifeless without any kitties, so I need to get my hands on some new cats I can snuggle! I know the pet shop in Fort Pinta has an abundance of kittens. They hardly have room for all of them and the situation is dire, which is perfect, because now I can bring some of them here!

The security guard in Fort Pinta is helping to find new homes for them, and he is more than willing to let me take them. He thinks it’s heartbreaking to see all those cats sit on top of each other because of the lack of space.

I know it’s a bit far, but it would really be of great help if you could go there and get those cats for me. I can hardly wait for them to arrive!

Objectives: Travel to Fort Pinta and speak to the security guard.

Sorry, ahem. That would have been me, the crazy cat hoarder. I honestly have all of the cats in the game, haha.

You can either ride to Fort Pinta or take the blue ferry boat there.

Speak to Security in front of the Fort Pinta disco.

security

PARDON?

Cats to Amelia?

I’ve been ordered to hand out a delivery of recruits to a certain commander Amelia. I understand she has authorized you to pick them up here in Fort Pinta. They’ve been nice comrades, so it’ll be sad to see them go, but orders are orders.

Hungry Rabbits

amelia

The rabbit food has started to run out and the poor things are starting to get hungry. Someone needs to get more food for them as soon as possible.

Filip on the Sunfield farm makes his own rabbit food on the farm, it’s a new hobby he has started doing. Hopefully also because he wants his own rabbits to benefit from the best food they can get. It’s so cute that he’s so anxious about his own animals. He’s simply a true friend of animals.

If, at some point, you’re in need of tips and hints about animal care, just pay Filip a visit! I’m sure he’ll be glad to help. 

In any case, fetch a sack of Filip’s best rabbit food and bring it afterwards to me. He’s awaiting you at the Sunfield farm.

Objectives: Fetch the food from Filip at the Sunfield farm.

filip_sunfield

Hi again, Rita! Good to see you.

I heard you were coming to get some rabbit food for the pet shop in Jarlaheim? We collaborate from time to time. I give Amelia food for the animals, while she helps out on the farm. We need that from time to time, as you already know, some people on the farm can be a bit lazy…

Yummy Rabbit Food

filip_sunfield

Here’s a sack of yummy food that those rabbits are gonna love. Made from my best, home-grown produce, this food will make the rabbits go crazy with happiness.

Hungry Dogs

amelia

The dog food has run out as well. The dogs can become a bit rowdy when hungry, so we better get the food before they find their own food supply and eat that instead.

Travel to my sister Johanna who takes care of Jorvik Stables. It’s good to have a sister that one can buy cheap dog food from. It’s nice to know so many different people around here that can help out with things!

Hi there, I take it you’re here to get dog food for Amelia?

I thought as much. You’re always there for people when they need you! My sister is very happy you’ve helped her this much, it’s appreciated. She’s had so much to do lately, in addition to helping Filip with his animals some times too. Poor thing barely has time for herself these days.

Hopefully it helps a lot having you around.

Hungry Cats

amelia

Oh dear, now the cat food is out, and the kitties are screaming for more! I feel sorry for those mousers sometimes, but I’m just being overprotective as usual. Oh well…

You’re more than welcome to get some cat food from my best friend Catherine. She’s not only the owner of Jarlaheim’s cafe, she also happens to sell the best cat food in the entire Harvest Counties. It’s not only healthy, it’s also very filling, making the cats eat less food than if they’d eaten regular cat food. Doesn’t that sound good?

I’ve phoned her and told her you’ll probably come by and pick up the cat food, so she’s prepared for your arrival.

It would be great if you went there!

Hi, Rita! Nice to see you, as usual! Hope everything is well with you. I guess you’re here for the cat food? Excellent.

It’s so nice that everything is working out for Amelia with the pet shop. She’s really fought hard for this, and it’s so good of you to help her out. 

Sometimes Amelia’s family and I don’t have time to step in, so it’s good to have someone extra to lean on from time to time!

However, I won’t take up any more of your time. I’m known to just yap on, haha!

The following quests are only available when the market is at Fort Pinta.

Bored Horses at the Market

ferdinand

Dearest Rita, it’s really lovely that you’ve come to visit us. You’re a little ray of sunshine sent to brighten up our day, believe me! If you have some time on your hands, maybe you could help me with a little errand? Oh, wonderful Rita, you’re too kind!

Y’know, our horses are a bit bored after travelling all the way here on the barge; there’s not really very much for them to do. I thought maybe if we could give them some sugar lumps it might improve their mood! The security guard here in Fort Pinta is an old friend of ours, perhaps you could ask him if he has a few sugar lumps spare for us? 

Thanks Rita, come back when you’ve got the sugar lumps and you’ll see that the horses will be in a much better mood!

Objectives: Ask the security guard at Fort Pinta for some sugar lumps.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Ride up to the entrance to the disco and speak with Security there.

security

WHAT?!

Sugar?! Sugar?!

Here, as Allied soldiers tumble down the cliffs like lemmings, you’re asking for sugar?

Quest completed

______________

Caution: Fall Hazard!

security

TEN-HUT!

Sugar… I hardly think you’d find any sugar here. In the middle of a terrible natural catastrophe we don’t exactly have the time for such civil frivolities! Right this second we’re in the midst of a disaster of apocalyptic proportions that frankly demands the total engagement and dedication of everybody involved!

What do you mean why am I so upset?! UPSET?!

Hmm? Calm down? Me?

Err…

Yes, well, yesterday as I was patrolling the base and inspecting the fortifications to ensure infiltrators couldn’t get in and that no tourists got lost in the fort, I almost walked right off the edge of the cliff! I was peering through my binoculars to check for enemies as I patrolled and didn’t exactly notice that I was so close to the edge. I was an inch from toppling right over into the sea, and it was only my superior commando training that saved me! What kind of training? Umm…

Yes! I was actually the Jorvik junior tap champion when I was younger… That’s actually really very much like commando training if you don’t mind!

ANYWAY! Now I’ve made these marvelous hazard signs that must be erected so that the same thing doesn’t happen to some standard civilian. Private Rita! ATTENTION! You’re hereby ordered to install these signs in appropriate locations along the fortifications. 

MOVE OUT! FORWAAARD MARCH!

Objectives: Put up the hazard signs around Fort Pinta and come back to talk to the security guard.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Ride around the fort and place the signs in the indicated locations, then return to Security when you are finished.

Report Back to Base

TEN-HUT! Don’t just stand here loitering, Private Rita. Here’s your sugar just as we agreed. Report back t General Ferdinand immediately. Between you and me, I’ll be recommending you for a medal for your heroic contribution here today.

Hmm…

MOVE OUT! FORWAAAARD MARCH!

Quest completed

______________

Horses on the Loose

ferdinand

Oh no Rita, not again! All the horses have gotten loose!

Dear, oh dear, when they got the sugar lumps they cheered right up… Maybe they got a bit too cheerful. After being stuck on the barge for so long, they all went bananas when they got the sugar and just ran away. 

Sure, they needed some activity but they can’t just bolt like that. This happens every time we come to Fort Pinta. I reckon they were just bluffing when they looked so down in the mouth earlier; they knew they’d get sugar from me and then they ran away. I could swear they’ve gone and hidden themselves in the fort, just as they always do.

Can you look for them Rita? If you find them, they’ll come back here afterwards. Sometimes it drives me crazy when they’re this naughty, but I suppose it would get awfully dull without a little drama, don’t you think? 

Good luck Rita, and don’t forget to have a really good look, they’re surprisingly good at hiding themselves, these nutty nags!

Objectives: Find all the horses that have hidden themselves in Fort Pinta.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Find all of the horses hiding in the fort. There are several places they could be, though it is different for each player. Some of the locations include: inside the disco (you will have to dismount to approach this horse), up on top of the fort, near the stable, near the fort statue, near the hairdresser, on the pony barge. Their locations will be indicated on your map, so they should not be too hard to find.

Simply approach the horse to ‘find’ it. When all of the horses have been found,  return to Ferdinand.

ferdinand

Haha, you did good Rita. All the horses have returned. We won’t be falling for their monkey business again next time we come here, let me tell you!

Rent for the Horse Market in Fort Pinta

eddie

Hi Rita, do you think you can help me with an errand? I haven’t got time to leave the market right now, but I need to pay the rent. You’re someone I trust, so I can rely on you to deliver this envelope of Jorvik Shillings? It needs to get to James in Fort Pinta, which shouldn’t take long for an expert rider like you.

You’d do that for me? Thanks Rita!

A Big Thank You From Ferdinand and Eddie

ferdinand

Dearest Rita, you’ve really been a huge help for us here in Fort Pinta. If you hadn’t helped us to find all the horses, we’d have been forced to search for the all night long.

Eddie and I had a little chat earlier on, and we both decided that we wanted to give you a gift, you know, to say thanks for all you’ve done for us. Eddie has been fixing it up and I think she’s finished now. You go talk to her and you’ll get a really lovely present from us, and nope, I’m saying nothing about what it is. That would only spoil the surprise! So long, dearest Rita, see you soon.

Starshine Legacy Episode 1 – Chapter 7: The Competition

chapter7

The day of the tournament has come and now it is time to see if Lisa and Starshine can repeat the great ride from the forest. Sabine will be the opponent and she obviously doesn’t like Lisa, but Lisa won’t let that get her down. She has found good friends in the other girls, and most of all in Starshine.

lisa

This is the tournament day! I’d better go and talk to Mr Herman and the girls so I’m fully prepared.

New objective: “The day of the competition. I’d better talk to Mr Herman.”

Walk over to the others near the fence of the competition arena.

herman

So the day has come, Lisa. You’ve already proven what a courageous and resourceful girl you are. This is a race between you and Sabine.. Kaahn is fast, but Starshine should have a fair chance.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

josh

I’m cheering for you, Lisa. I hear that you play music, too? No matter how this turns out, I’d love to hear you play someday. Here’s my number. Give me a call when you have the time.

In comes Sabine. Oh joy…

sabine

Hi, Lisa. Today you and that stupid albino horse will be so humiliated Oh, hi, Josh. What are you doing slumming with the punk girl?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

josh

Hi Sabine, hi Kaahn – I’m just wishing her good luck, that’s all.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

anne

Go get her, Lisa. Now get up in the saddle and believe in yourself… And in Starshine.

Go and mount Starshine to get ready for the race.

herman

The race is divided into three rounds. To complete one round, you must manage three laps around the race track.

The first one over the finish line after three laps is the winner of the round!

The best of all three rounds will be the overall winner of the tournament!

It’s time to start.

You’re now taken to the starting line of the race.

herman

You know the rules. Remember, three laps, three rounds. Best of all three rounds is the winner. Let the best rider win!

New objective: “I need to beat Sabine in at least two of the three competition heats”

It is not impossible to pass Sabine if she gets ahead of you, but it is easier to win if you pass her right at the beginning. She is clumsy and runs into the hay bales around the track (especially the ones around the two short turns). These bales can get pushed into your way and cause you to lose ground in the race.

The races get tedious, but they are short and easy to win.

Win at least two of the three to win the tournament.

If you do not win the tournament, you will have to repeat all three races.

herman

You did it, Lisa! I’m so happy that you decided to come to the stables.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

anne

You did great, Lisa! It’s really funny because this whole thing with Starshine has really made us all – Linda, Alex, you and me – very good friends.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

Yes, it is great, and I’m sure this is the beginning of a long and wonderful friendship.

Level 7 completed!

Episode 1 completed…

The story will be continued in Episode 2

Starshine Legacy Episode 1 – Chapter 6: The Woods

chapter6

Something is haunting Lisa in the dark woods, rapidly. There is no time for safe riding now, and wherever the path leads them, it has got to be better than being caught by the thing following them. A fast, dangerous and treacherous road awaits Lisa and Starshine, and Lisa can only trust her instinct to let him loose.

The Dark Rider has been released on your tail. Run like your life depends on it!

Follow the direction signs and blue stars to find your way through the forest to escape the Dark Rider. If you get caught, you’ll be sent back to an earlier checkpoint.

lisa

The cloaked rider didn’t follow us here. The rider is stopping by the edge of the abyss. Good for us.

What is this place? It looks strange and ancient. 

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

starshine

Look – on that stone… What are those pictures? Is that a picture of me?

 

stonering

lisa

I don’t know, Starshine, this looks strange – it looks like us, but then again, not. I must show this to the other girls.

New Times at the Goldspur Estate

angus_goldspur

Hi Rita! Great news!

Listen to this. Filip Sunfield is buying a new horse transport, and he’s giving the old one to us! It’s really about time we got our own horse transport, don’t you think?It makes it so much easier to travel to our estate.

Could you ride over to Filip and tell him we’re ready to accept it? You can? Thanks, Rita, and please give my regards to everyone at the Sunfield farm.

Objectives: Speak to Filip Sunfield.

Transport Trouble

filip_sunfield

Hmm, this is odd. I sent away our old horse transport yesterday. It should have arrived already. Who drove it? Well, Jack Goldspur did.

He came by, telling us he’d heard we needed help driving off a transport, and he was ore than willing to aid. I don’t know how much he paid attention to what I said, because when he drove off, he went towards Paddock Island instead of taking the road through the city. He was going awfully fast, but I figured he knew what he was doing.

It’s probably for the best if you ride and speak to him about this. Hope everything works out.

Objectives: Speak to Jack Goldspur.

Cars Over the Bridge

jack_goldspur

Angus cares? Ha ha! I know my brother, Rita. Tomorrow he’s forgotten all about it, believe me! You don’t? Ha ha, sure you do. It’s been like this since we were little. I mess with his things, he chases me around until he gets tired. Then he gives up, we don’t speak for a year or two, and then we make friends again. Ha ha, this is precisely like it used to be, nothing to worry about.

Don’t you want to play a game of cards or something instead? I’m crazy bored.

What? You want to know what became of Filip’s horse transport?

Well, if you have to know, it’s on the bottom of the sea. How it got there?

Ooh, that’s a super exciting tale if you ever heard one. I was supposed to drive to the Goldspur estate, but it’s such a bore driving through the city, so I decided I’d do some rally driving over Paddock Island instead. As I came down the hill leading to the bridge, I remembered the bridge is broken. You know what I did?

Precisely! You and I really think alike! There was only one thing I could do, and that was to speed jump over the broken bridge with the horse transport!!

What do you mean, “stupid?” It was awesome! However, it didn’t go very well. The care was useless for jumping and I went straight into the water. It was sheer luck I managed to climb on land again. But it was awesome! Too bad nobody videotaped it… It would’ve been perfect for J-Tube.

What do you mean, “fix it?” Angus can just buy a new horse transport!

How expensive can they be?! I can’t be bothered discussing this any more, I need to be doing something fun instead.

Inspecting the Site of the Accident

jill_goldspur

What now, then? Do you think we can retrieve the horse transport from the bottom of the sea? Doubtfully, you say? I agree, but we better try first. I don’t want to waste a whole lot of Jorvik Shillings of the tax payers’ money to buy a new hose transport if unnecessary. It’s vexing that my brothers keep fighting all te time. It would be for the best if we could fix this ourselves.

Ride there and see if you can think of a way to get the horse transport out of the water. 

Objectives: Inspect the area where the horse transport went off the broken bridge. Return afterwards to Jill Goldspur.

angus_goldspur

Okay. This was typical… The horse transport is completely broken…

But, I don’t give up this easily! Do you hear, Rita? I’ll fix this horse transport good, I promise you that!!

Though, I need your help, Rita. Idun has forbidden me to fix more stuff since I tried to repair our old plow. I left that thing in a state of itty bitty crumbs, I’m afraid… My patented method of repair didn’t quite succeed on that one. BUT, I’ll teach you how to repair things Angus Goldspur’s way, and then you can fix it instead!

You do like this. Take this nice crowbar and whack the horse transport all over the place where it looks broken. It’s all about scaring the thing into operating mode!

Come back when you get it running again, Rita.

Objectives: Use the crowbar to repair the horse transport. Afterwards, speak to Angus Goldspur.

Rewards: 1000 Jorvik Shillings, 100 XP, Summer Blouse

Reputation: 5 with Goldspur Family

Dismount your horse to use the crowbar on the places indicated by Angus. Whack it good, now.

Return to him when you have hit it in all the right places.

angus_goldspur

Look Rita, my method really works! This was the first time as a matter of fact, but I knew it! With a decent crowbar you can fix all kinds of problems!

Thank you. Thank you very much. You can use our horse transport as often as you like, and you’re also welcome to visit anytime you like.

Bye then!

Visit Morgana when you are Admired with the Goldspur Family.

I’m Back, and Update on the Bestie

Hey all!

I’m back from my weekend vacation! It was really fun and it was nice to see my friends again.

Since I got a lot of support from everyone when I posted about my friend’s suicide attempt, I thought I would update you all for those who are interested.

He is doing really well. He spent the last couple weeks in the psyche ward at the hospital, getting daily talk therapy and being under supervision. His wounds have healed well and he is being treated for bipolar disorder. He is still getting daily therapy but he will be staying and working from home for the next few weeks. His partner is also doing better and dealing with things well. He has been very supportive of Sam and many the new changes they will have to make in the future. It was very bittersweet seeing him happy this weekend. I’m not a religious person, but I do think God was watching over him that day and is making sure that he continues to do well.

Thanks for the support from everyone and I hope you all had a great weekend. Love you all!

Travel to Ferdinand’s Horse Market’s current location to begin these quests [the current location will be posted on the Horse Guide page].

Welcome to the Market

ferdinand

Good day to you! My name is Ferdinand, and this is Ferdinand’s Horse Market. Welcome! Who do I have the honor of addressing?

Rita? How nice. I hope you’ll find everything you seek, here at my most humble market. May I ask the name of your wonderful steed?

Summerblaze, what a lovely name! Horses are my life, you see. All the horses you see on this fare are raised on my family’s grounds, high up on Jorvik’s tallest mountain.

Every so often, my wife and I travel to the lowland to find new owners for our horses, but not whoever comes around! I would never let my horses be purchased by a careless individual, that would be unforgivable. I can see you are a decent and responsible human being, so if you see a horse you’d like to buy, it would pleasure me immensely to see you become its owner.

Anyhow, don’t let me take up any more of your valuable time, I’m going to… wait!

Someone is shouting. It sounds like my wife, and her voice is angry…

Rita. Uh… I have to remain on my spot here, would you be dear and see what’s befallen her?

Objectives: Speak to Ferdinand’s wife.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 25 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

You can find Ferdinand’s wife nearby in the market.

eddie

Good day to you! Pardon me… I must be looking hideous at the moment. Here I am, halfway down in the mud working, when visitors arrive! It’s so typical.

Who am I speaking to? Rita, nice to meet you. My name is Edvina, but you may call me Eddie, everyone I know does. We’ll have to speak later, I need to get my work done. Or, maybe you could help me?

Broken Wheels

eddie

Oh, Rita. Every time, it’s the same. The trip down the mountain is fine, on its narrow and horrid paths winding their way down the steeps. Later, when we’ve made it to civilization, to nice flat roads, things starts falling apart. I have no idea why this is, but it’s like this every time. Today the wagon wheel broke. It’s not hard to repair, you only need hammer and nails, but it takes time.

Know what? If I fix this wheel, maybe you can fix the other broken wagons? You can? Thanks. Have a look at the wagons here and see if you can fix the broken wheels you come across.

Return to me when you’re done. See you later.

Objectives: Repair all broken wheels on the wagons in the market square.

No More Hay for the Horses

ferdinand

Dear Rita, how good of you to come visit us. You’re a ray of sunlight that brightens our day, mark my words. If you have some time to spare, could you help me with a small errand? Excellent, Rita, very kind of you.

You see, we need to replenish our stockpile of hay. Our latest trip took longer than anticipated, and we’ve almost run out. The Sunfield family are old friends of ours, could you ask Martina if she has some hay to spare?

Thanks, Rita. Return when you have the hay.

Shrimps for Hay

martina_sunfield

Ferdinand and Eddie needs hay for their horses? Why didn’t you say so in the first place? Of course they’ll get all the hay they need! But while I do that, you’ll have to help me around a little.

Take this bucket of old shrimp shells, and don’t wrinkle your nose now, and toss the contents in the sea. It might be smelly, but it’s like that sometimes. Everything can’t smell like roses and lilacs. Ride down to the docks north of our farm and toss the shrimp shells to the sea. Come back later, and I’ll give you your hay.

Objectives: Ride to the docks north of the Sunfield farm and toss the old shrimp shells in the sea.

Quest completed

______________

The Horses Have Escaped the Market

ferdinand

Woe and horror, Rita! Have you seen it? Our horses have gone nutty and torn loose!

Dear me, it must have been something in the hay that’s made them this wacky. I know they love that hay, but they never get this elated. I don’t know how long they can run around in this hijinks, but soon enough someone will get tired and hurt themselves, I just know it. Summerblaze seems to be a fast steed, maybe you can ride among them and stop them? You only need to get close to them, and you’ll see they quiet down.

Hurry up, Rita, and be careful. Good luck!

Objectives: Ride along all horses who have escaped the Horse Market and make them stop.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Run after each horse and get close enough to make it stop. Once you have caught all of the horses, return to Ferdinand.

Market Rent

eddie

Hi, Rita. Could you help me with a small errand? I don’t have time to leave the market right now, but the rent is due. You’re a trustworthy person, could I consign this envelope with Jorvik Shillings to you? You only need to give it to Johanna at Jorvik Stables. It’ll be a quick job for a rider of your skill.

You can? Thanks, Rita.

A Big Thank You from Ferdinand and Eddie

ferdinand

Dear Rita, you’ve truly been a great support to use here in the Harvest Counties. Imagine if you haven’t save the day and made those horses stop… I don’t want to think about it.

Eddie and I spoke earlier, and we both agreed that we want to give you a gift as a reward for everything you’ve done for us. Eddie was going to procure it, and I think she’s ready now. Go see her, and you’ll get a very nice present from us, and no, I don’t intend you what it is. That would ruin the surprise! See you later, dear Rita, see you later.

Objectives: Speak to Eddie at the Horse Market.

Rewards: 150 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP, Green Snugly Tights

Reputations: 500 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Hi, Rita! Look what I’ve found in our wagon. It’s a small thing we received on our wedding day many years ago, and both Ferdinand and I thought it would suit you perfectly. Here you go! You’re a true friend, Rita, do come visit us soon. Bye now.

Finished and Delivered

karl_franz

Good day, Rita. All the deliveries have been made, they’re over there.

Can you help me open them and check if everything is in order? I don’t dare look by myself. What if they only contain rubbish? Then everything will be ruined…

Okay. I won’t take the sorrows in advance. You’re right! Let’s just open those deliveries and take a look!

Later I can cry in desperation, but not now!

I’m ready, Rita! Open all crates and barrels!

Okay, breathe. It doesn’t look half bad. The tables and chairs aren’t like I imagined, but they’re amazingly well-crafted. The cushions and table cloth… Not awesome, but I can live with it. The china and the decorations… 

I guess I can use some of the chinaware… I’ll ask the Baroness if I can borrow some things from her to decorate the restaurant.

Let’s Take the Stairs Up to the Roof

Ah, what a lovely day! Finally everything is in place. Only the small details lack before we can open the Silver Fork Restaurant!

The Guests Need Some Place to Sit

Could you assemble the tables and chairs for me, Rita? It’s a bit complicated, and I’m not very technical.

The Last Piece of the Restaurant Puzzle

karl_franz

Magnificent, Rita! Everything is in order. We can open now, right? Lovely!

What? If I’ve forgotten something? Let’s see… My notes have not been in order since they blew away, but I think we’re good. What did you have in mind?

Food? What about food?

FOOD! Where’s the chef?! I’ve completely forgotten the chef! Aw, what am I to do, Rita? How am I going to find a chef here?! A chef who masters real continental cuisine?

Carney? Who’s that? He’s got a reputation as a good cook? I guess I don’t have a choice… Can you ask him? Thanks. Sigh. What’s the end of this…

Objectives: Ask Carney if he’d like to work as a chef in Karl Franz’s restaurant.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Quest completed

______________

My Brother Might Want to Change Course in Life

carney

Yes, I’m fairly good at cooking, not the best in the family, but good enough to work at a restaurant. But I don’t cook to order, so to work as a chef? Bah! No way!

You should talk to my brother Barney. He might have gone tired working as a farmer.

Work as a cook… My father would spin in his grave. It’s only been eight years since he died, but if he saw me in a kitchen at a restaurant he would’ve died of a heart attack much sooner.

Barney might not be interested, but he can cook. Ask him if you’re set on finding a chef.

Bye.

Objectives: Ride and speak to Barney.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Quest completed

______________

The Next Brother is Even Better At Cooking

barney

Sure I’m better than Carney at cooking, everyone says so. But becoming a chef is not something that interests me.

You should speak to my brother Marley. He’s even a better cook than me. He and our father always used to cook together back in the day. He lost interest in it fifteen years ago when our father died, but maybe he’s heard the call again?

Ride and speak to him. It’s worth a try.

Objectives: Ride and speak to Marley, brother of Barney and Carney.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 5 with Silverglade Manor

Maybe this brother will take the offer?

marley

Hi there. If I want to become a chef?

Quest completed

______________

More Cooks in the Family?

marley

Sigh. No, cooking isn’t for me. It used to be my dream when I was younger, to work with food full time, but since my father died last year, I’ve completely lost interest. From time to time when I do make something, everyone tells me it tastes fantastic, but I’d never be happy working in a kitchen.

And you’ve asked Carney as well? Thought so. He’s probably the worst in our family at cooking though.

And Courtney, what did she say?

Who Courtney is? She’s the best cook in the family! Haven’t you asked her yet?

What?

Courtney! My sister of course! She lives over at Silverglade Village. She’s amazing in the kitchen and has always dreamed about becoming a chef.

Don’t just stand there! Ride to Silverglade Village and speak to her at once!

Later!

Objectives: Ride to Silverglade Village and locate Courtney, Marley’s sister.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Courtney’s house can be found up across the street from the well and the notary. Knock on her door to see if you can ask her about becoming a chef.

Finally a Potential Chef

courtney

Work as a chef at a restaurant?

That sounds exciting! I have both talent and education for it. Everyone tells me my food is heavenly, it would be absolutely fabulous to be able to work with it full time.

So you’ll be running this restaurant? No?

Hmmmph!

Sending a helper instead of coming himself? Who is this person I’m supposed to work for?

Karl Franz of Silver Fork… He sounds exquisite, but apparently he has much to learn about etiquette and sense. Sending his helper to woo a fine lady like myself. Tell him I have my dignity to consider. I could never work for a buffoon like him.

Tell him that!

Ciao!

______________

Charming Fine Ladies

karl_franz

Alright. Challenge accepted.

I need your help in this, Rita. When courting a fine lady, one always needs to bring a gift. This is very important!

Pick a bouquet containing the finest flowers from around here and give them to her alongside my utmost apologies. That’s proper greeting protocol, etiquette and all.

Objectives: Pick flowers and give them to Courtney in Silverglade Village.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Ride around the outside of the Manor property and pick several flowers, then deliver them to Courtney.

Oh, what a lovely bouquet! Thank you.

 But this isn’t enough… Is he clueless on how to court a lady?

Quest completed

______________

Unsuccessful Etiquette

courtney

I thought this Karl Franz was a gentleman, but he appears to just be a bluff. Flowers would have been correct at our first meeting, but since this is meeting number two and he’s already made a horrible etiquette blunder, this will simply not suffice.

Tell that buffoon that he’ll get one more chance, not a single one more. And this time I want something really good.

Ciao!

Objectives: Ride back to Karl Franz and tell him Courtney wants something nicer.

A Gift That Says It All

karl_franz

Alright then. We’ll have to give her the finest give we have.

In the wine cellar there’s a bottle of Chateau Silverglade 1894. It’s extremely expensive and there’s only one bottle left in existence. The Baroness gave it to me as a present for my baptizing and it’s been safe and secure in her wine cellar my whole life.

Fetch that bottle. It’s the finest possession I own. The door to the cellar is at the far end of the vineyard.

Return to me after.

Objectives: Fetch the wine bottle in the vineyard cellar and return to Karl Franz.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 5 with Silverglade Manor

The bottle can be found in the first room at the bottom of the steps; the same room the G.E.D. Trainee accidentally drilled into, some time ago.

Pick up the bottle then return to the rooftop.

karl_franz

Careful! It’s very precious. It hurts my soul deeply to give it away, but it’s worth it to be able to open the restaurant.

Quest completed

______________

The Finest of Presents to the Pickiest of Women

karl_franz

Oh, I really don’t want to do this! But it’s more important to open my restaurant. Take the bottle. Be very careful as you carry it, give it to Courtney as a present. Tell her it was a present for my baptizing, how valuable it is, and how much it means to me. To give her this bottle is to give away part of my soul. That’s how much it means.

Ride now, Rita. We must make a hasty goodbye before I start crying.

Objectives: Give the wine to Courtney in Silverglade Village.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputations: 15 with Silverglade Manor

Maybe this will be enough to win her over?

courtney

A bottle of wine?

Quest completed

______________

Tell Franz It’s Not Enough

courtney

Chateau Silverglade 1894. The best of all vintages. I thought it was just a legend…

But no. I appreciate the  gesture, but you simply don’t give wine to a lady. Who does he think I am? You tell me it was the most precious thing he owned? Be that is as it may, but you don’t give wine to a lady on the third meet. Maybe the first, maybe the second, maybe the fourth. But on the third, there is only one correct gift, and that is chocolate! Everyone knows that!

So. Tell Karl Franz of the Silver Fork I thank him for his gift, but I have decided to decline his offer of employment. I can’t work for someone who doesn’t know anything about sense and etiquette.

Ciao, Rita!

Place the Sign

courtney

Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm. This isn’t so bad. We’ll have to do a few conceptual changes to make it fit here in Silverglade, but I’ll take care of that.

Listen to me, Karl Franz. This menu… It doesn’t work. Quail, foie gras and fine cheeses may sell on the continent, but here in Silverglade you’ll need a different kind of dishes. I’ll rewrite the menu. Don’t worry, snookums. It’ll be perfect in the end, just you wait and see.

Karl Franz, dearest. I was sifting through the invoices and noticed a very expensive one from James in Fort Pinta. Fifty thousand Jorvik Shilling for a couple of plastic buckets and old junk? What were you thinking? Don’t worry, I’ll speak to him. I’ll show that petty rascal!

Rita. Quit dillydallying and help out a little. Here’s a sign with the new menu. Go over there and put it up. Then we can open.

Oh, if only my father could see me now. Restaurant owner. Little me! Sigh.

You’re sad? Whatever for? He’s what?! DEAD?!

Who told you that?

My brothers… They aren’t quite right in the head. My father’s alive, I spoke to him last week. Or… Was it last year…? Anyway, he’s not dead. In fact, he’s never been better! You can’t kill off Ronnie Bob Summers that easily!

Now place the sign so we can open!

Go back to the ground level and place the sign near the stairs. Then return to the rooftop.

Rita, dearest, thank you for all you’ve done. You’ll be our guest of honor any time you return! Now we open. I’m so happy! You found Courtney for me, this amazing woman, can you believe it?

I have to go to work. Apparently I’ve forgotten to hire a waiter, so Courtney told me I should do it for now. She’s sharp as a stick, that one. Oh, she’s wonderful…

The Silver Fork Opens Its Gates

courtney

Everything’s ready. Let’s open the restaurant.

Welcome to the Silver Fork Restaurant, Rita!

Thank you for everything. And, after all the discussions we’ve had about gifts, it would be highly inappropriate, if not even impolite, not to give you one as reward for your help.

Here. A perfect gift according to all rules of etiquette and protocol. As reward for pairing two sweethearts and helping realize someone’s dream, I hereby and according to tradition, present you with a diamond necklace!

Objectives: Speak to Courtney.

Rewards: 200 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP, Cafe Cap

Gasp! How dare you?! That is completely the wrong gift, what a horrible blunder to make!

courtney

Oh, wait. Forgive me, I’m turning all red here. That’s according to etiquette the gift for having helped someone carry a heavy bag on a Saturday!

Forgive me, how could I make such a mistake… Everyone knows this…

Here’s your gift! Of course you’ll get a cap for your help! A diamond necklace, forgive me again, I’m so ashamed. It would have been incredibly rude of me to give you a diamond necklace when you were supposed to have a cap.

Here you go!

You’re always welcome here Rita, you know that. Ciao!

Quest completed

You can now visit the Silver Fork whenever you want. It functions just like any of the other cafes on the island. Sit at a table and see what they have to offer!

Starshine Legacy Episode 1 – Chapter 5: The Industrial Complex

chapter5

With a determination she did not believe she had in her, Lisa starts making her way into the dark and scary woods. Though she never walked these woods before, even in daylight, she feels guided by the presence of Starshine. The thought of him pushes the chill of the night away, and gives her the strength to walk even faster. She arrives at the location Anne told her about, and starts scanning the surroundings.

lisa

This must be the industrial complex. Looks like it’s well-guarded. I have to find another way in… Perhaps through these pipes…

New objective: “So this is the Dark Core building. I need to find some way in. I must find Starshine, without being discovered.”

Go into the big pipe and walk through it until you are into the open area inside the gate.

lisa

I’m in! Now I have to avoid the search lights… I mustn’t let them see me!

If I can use these wheels to seal all the pipes here, the steam pressure may blow a hole in the big pipe big enough for me to squeeze through…

New objective: “I need to turn all the four pressure wheels.”

Go around to each pipe bridge and click to turn the wheels. Avoid being seen by the search lights. Once you turn all four of the wheels, the pressure will blow a hole in the large pipe in the middle of the area, and the search lights will turn off.

lisa

Looks like I can sneak through the hole into the pipe without getting spotted by the searchlights…

Go through the pipe and into the next area. Cross the area and into the sunken space. Go into the pipe on the other side of the sunken space. It comes out into a toxic river. You can cross by running along the pipe that crosses the river, and then turn left onto the pipe on the other side. It goes upwards and over another pipe. You can drop down off of your current pipe, into the broken space in the lower one. Run through the lower one into the next space.

lisa

Hmm, a car… I wonder whose car that is? Maybe I can find some clues to who is behind all this

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

starshine

Lisa, this is a dark place indeed, and I am weaker than ever before.

New objective: “There is a car in here. I’d better examine it.”

Approach the car and click to examine it near the front door.

lisa

Hmm… The car seems to belong to Dark Core… Anyway, with this keycard on me, I might be able to open the gates from a distance.

Walk up the ramp to the building and go inside when the gate opens.

lisa

It worked! As soon as I get close to a big gate, it’ll open!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

starshine

Lisa, I can feel you… I am here in the dark.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

Hmm… Maybe I can get ride of these guys if I can distract them…

New objective: “I must lure away these guards somehow.”

Cross the room to the large boiler contraption and inspect the button on the post.

lisa

There’s an alarm button over there. I should be able to hide behind the thick steam if they come running out…

Press the button and hide behind the steam to wait for the guards to leave.

lisa

Well, that should keep them busy for a while… Now I need to get Starshine out of here!

Go up to Starshine’s enclosure to see what you can do to get him out.

lisa

Oh, Starshine, there you are… I’m gonna try to get you out of here.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

starshine

Dear Lisa, it seems our friendship will be very short. I can’t see how we can escape this.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

Don’t give up, Starshine. I’ll do whatever I can to save you.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

starshine

You have a special power, I promise. And you woke me from a dark sleep. But you’ve already tried to heal me and it didn’t work.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

My father always told me, never give up, and I’m stronger now, Starshine. My love for you is much more powerful than those dark and evil men.

New objective: “Starshine is still in pain. This time I must succeed in healing him.”

When the blue symbol appears on the screen, click to heal Starshine.

lisa

I did it! I managed to heal you, Starshine! Where my powers come from, I’ll never know.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

starshine

You really did it, Lisa. You got rid of all the darkness that was infecting my leg… But I hate to rain on your parade here, Princess. I’m still in here.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

I think the gizmo I got from Alex may come in handy here… I think I can open this cage with it.

Oh look who it is, our old friend Mr Sands…

mr_sands

I knew it! The girl has special powers that are somehow connected with the white horse…

Click to use the tool to unlock the cage, then approach Starshine when the bars descend.

lisa

The cage is unlocked! We have to leave now. Fast!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

starshine

I’m ready! Jump on my back and we’ll get out of here!

Click to mount Starshine and prepare to ride for your life!

mr_sands

Run all you like, little girl. Something dark is coming for you and the horse… And it’s coming fast. Ha ha ha!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

You can’t get me. Starshine is too fast for you.

Take off through the industrial complex. Follow the blue stars to escape. Jump over the pipes and avoid the Dark Core workers trying to stop you. If you get caught you will have to start over from the previous gate. When you get to the front gate, you will have escaped the complex.

Starshine Legacy Episode 1 – Chapter 4: Where is Starshine?

chapter4

Lisa rushes over to the stables. When she woke up this morning she didn’t know anyone here, but now she feels that she has lost her best friend. How does it all add up? Mr Sands, Starshine, and Sabine, and the mysterious Dark Core – they are all somehow connected but Lisa can’t make out how. She curses herself for leaving Starshine in such a state. She knows that she will do everything in her power to get Starshine back, and never leave him again…

lisa

It’s already dark… I hope Anne is still at the stables.

New objective: “I need to find Anne and Mr Herman to find out what happened.”

Go into the stables to find your friends and learn what happened to Starshine.

lisa

Anne, Alex… What happened here?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

anne

Starshine is gone. I don’t really know what happened. Maybe Mr Herman knows more.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

alex

This really stinks, Lisa. I think someone with really bad intentions broke in and took Starshine. I think Mr Herman saw what happened.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

herman

I can’t believe it! Masked men broke in here – into my stables – and took this fine horse right before my eyes!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

anne

How did they manage to take him so quickly? I mean, he was injured, wasn’t he?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

herman

Two men grabbed me while the other ones abducted Starshine. What nerve!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

anne

Maybe the people who did this left some traces?

Let’s search the stable for clues…

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

herman

Okay, you do that. I’ll go out and check the stable grounds. 

New objective: “Maybe I can find some clues here in the stables.”

Go search around the inside of the stables to find a clue about who could have done this.

Behind the last box, near the inside door at the far end, is a matchbox that was left. Click on it to look at it.

lisa

This is strange! A matchbox with the Dark Core logo on it. And look, something is scrawled on it…

“DC Barricade.” What is that?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

anne

Oh, I know what that is. It is an old abandoned dark core warehouse.

We should go there and see if that’s where they took Starshine.

Here comes Sabine… Of course she is not being helpful…

sabine

I can’t let you do this! If the teachers and your parents find out, they’ll go crazy!

Stay here and let the police take care of this.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

I can’t believe she locked us in!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

anne

That girl is just too much! What is she up to now?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

alex

That girl is completely mental… Doesn’t she realize what’s at stake here?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

How on earth are we going to get out of here?

New objective: “Sabine has locked us in! We need to find a way out.”

Go down to the end of the stables, near where you found the matchbox. There is an electrical switch box that could work.

lisa

This lever is used to open the doors.

No, something is jamming the lock. I can’t do it.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

alex

Anne and I will heave ourselves down on that lever… I think we can open the hatch enough for you to get out, Lisa.

Here! Take this thing, it’s great to have if you ever end up in a jam.

Now run to the door, and Anne and I will get this thing open.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

I’ll go to the abandoned site. It’s better if you stay here and wait for Mr Herman.

New objective: “I need to go to that Dark Core place and find Starshine.”

Pick up the tool that Alex drops for you then go out the stable doors when Anne and Alex open them.

lisa

I’ll have to go to the abandoned site… In the dark… But I must do this for Starshine.
