A Special Horse Named Spirit

Star Stable and Dreamworks have teamed up and Spirit has come to visit Jorvik! You can learn more about him by visiting Tori near the Fort Pinta fountain.

Spirit has arrived in Jorvik and in the near future, you and your friends will be able to do quests with Spirit. By completing enough quests and achieving the reputation level Admired with Spirit, he will become your horse.

Good luck!

Spirit turns up at a new place in Jorvik every hour, on the hour. If you find him, he has a quest that you have to help him with.

Spirit moves between many different places in Jorvik, so get help from your friends to find him!

Spirit is on the go every day between times 0800 and 2100.

In Fort Pinta, you will find Tori and Sally. They have been fans of Spirit since they were little. they are selling clothes and gear with a Spirit theme. At their place, you can buy a special apple to give to Spirit to make him stay with you as your horse.

When Spirit likes you enough, you can buy a Miradero apple to give him to make him stay with you as your horse.

You can buy the Miradero apple in Fort Pinta.

Spirit is still a wild horse and doesn’t want a lot of gear weighing him down. You cannot put horse equipment on Spirit.

 

Spirit works like regular reputation quests. They are first initiated by speaking to Tori by the Fort Pinta fountain. Once done, you must find Spirit out in Jorvik once an hour. Spirit moves according to the server time, not the player local time. The server time can be found on the clock town in Silverglade Village.

You will be notified when you are in an area near Spirit. Follow the blowing leaves to narrow down his location. Once you find him, you can start a blue point quest for reputation with him. His quests involve finding a location somewhere nearby. You will be shown a preview of the area you need to find. Pay close attention, as it will not be indicated on your minimap. If you need to see the preview again, talk to Spirit.

Spirit can be found in the following locations:

  • South Hoof Peninsula
  • Sunfield Farm
  • Stormgarden
  • Everwind Fields
  • Hollow Woods
  • The Cauldron
  • Forgotten Fields
  • Jarla Cafe
  • Greendale
  • Valedale Lake
  • Seahorse Point
  • Nilmer’s Highland
  • Silverglade Acres
  • North Iron Gate
  • Jarlaheim
  • Goldspur’s Farm
  • Fort Pinta Road
  • Moorland Beach
  • Valedale
  • Moorland Road
  • Dew’s Farm in Epona
  • The Fire Trail
  • Apple Grove
  • Firgrove Road
  • New Hillcrest
  • Eastern Slopes
  • Moorland
  • Goldenleaf Forest
  • Doyle’s Abbey
  • Jarlaheim Fields
  • Riding Hall
  • Shadowy Hills

Spirit’s quests give 200 reputation points. You will need to help Spirit 30 times to reach Admired with him.

Just like regular reputation quests, when you reach a new level, you will need to speak to Tori to be able to continue with quests. If you do not, Spirit will not appear for you in new locations until you do. When you have reached Admired, return to Fort Pinta and purchase the Miradero apple from Sally’s shop for 699 Star Coins. You will then need to find Spirit again to feed him the apple. He will then travel to your home stable and function as regular horse you can ride.

Spirit is yours to keep forever. You can ride him as much as you want, though he will not wear tack. Even though he is a mustang, he is not able to perform the special move when you press spacebar.

Spirit Quests

A Wild Mustang

Hi!

Have you heard?

Rumor has it that Spirit is here in Jorvik! Me and my best friend Sally have come all the way here just to meet him. We’ve idolized him ever since we were little. 

You don’t know who Spirit is?!

Spirit is the best! He’s a wild Mustang who always wants to help those close to him. I bet he’s here to see what he can do to help the people and animals here in Jorvik. You should try to find him so you have the chance to meet him and get to know him. If you love horses, Spirit is a horse you must get to know!

Objectives: Talk to Tori again.

Rewards: Lucky’s Special Occassions Dress

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

I don’t know where he is, but I’ve heard that he is moving between different places here on the island. Perhaps you’ll get lucky and find him!

Is It True?!

There you are! You have to tell me! Is it true? Is it true that you are friends with Spirit?

That is so cool! You must have made a really good impression on Spirit.

Best Friends

Oh! Congratulations! I’m so happy for you! How cool that you and Spirit have become best friends and that he likes you so much. You really must have spent a lot of time with him.

The more you get to know that horse, the more you like him. Don’t you agree?

______________

Admired by Spirit

I’m impressed! I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who Spirit seems to admire as much as he admires you.

Hmm, would you like to give him something as a token of your friendship?

I’ve got an idea of what you can buy. In our store, we have a special kind of apple that only grows in Miradero, where Spirit is from. These kind of apples are really, really hard to get a hold of if you don’t live there. I bet that if you bring the apple to Spirit and let him have a taste of his home land, he will just love it!

Objectives: Talk to Tori again.

Rewards: 50 Jorvik Shillings, 50 XP, Horse Hat

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

But before you think about whether to give something to Spirit or not, Sally and I want to give you something! Just because we think you’re so cool that you managed to get even Spirit to admire you.

So we want to give you this!

Here you go!

Summer is Fun

Hey all!

I haven’t abandoned you. Summer is great where I live, mostly because the rest of the year it is cold and snowy, and I don’t much care for it. So I’ve been enjoying the sunshine as much as possible. I have also gotten back in to my textile crafts and lots of reading and motorcycle riding. As far as my hobbies go, the computer based ones have taken lower priority for the moment.

I am happy to see you all are still visiting the blog. I try to remember to check comments frequently and continue to help even though I haven’t been posting much. As much as I wanted to make this an entirely happy post, there is one negative that needs to be brought up.

I have received some rather rude and impatient comments regarding the lack of updates on the horse page. To that I say, take a chill pill and get a life. There are more important things than hoarding pixel ponies. The horse page is just meant to be a general reference anyway. When new horses are released, their location is announced on the news. You don’t have to wait for me to add them. I have a life outside of the computer and sometimes I really have no interest in sitting inside working on the blog, when there are other things I would rather do. And if that bothers you, I don’t need you here.

For the most part, you all have been great, constantly supportive, and for that, I cannot send you enough love.

At the moment I write this, I have added pictures of all the new horses. I know that many older horses’ locations have been changed. I will be updating that soon as well. I still have not decided if I will update the pictures for the new body model of the original Jorvik Warmblood. I probably will not, if just for nostalgia’s sake. But if you have an opinion on the subject, feel free to give me your input!

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer, and happy riding!

❤ Maggie

Day 140, Tracking Down Carl – South Hoof Spoiler Alert

An Acquaintance from the Past

Hey Rita! 

During the night I thought a lot about how we will find Carl and I think I have an idea. 

I got to know a lady called Anastasia Silverglade when I was working as a lawyer in L.A. She was one of my clients and if there was ever someone who knew how to get hold of something, it was her.

She was born here in Jorvik and I heard a few years ago that she was going to move back to her old apartment here.

But she knows everyone and as we don’t have anything to go on when it comes to Carl, aside from his name and license number, I think we should start asking Anastasia if she  can help us. 

Objectives: Talk to Erik.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 20 with Jorvik City

So how do we find the lady that will help us find the guy?

I tried doing a search on her name but it seems as if she’s still at her old apartment, so I suggest we go there. Hopefully she knows how we can do a search on the license plate.

Quest completed

______________

Governor’s Fall 

Are you ready to go Rita?

Anastasia will be living at Governor’s fall – if she hasn’t moved. But when I tried doing a search for her on my cellphone, it looked as if she was still living there, so I think we should go there and hope for the best. 

If there is anyone who can help us, it’s her.

Objectives: Go to Governor’s Fall where Anastasia lives.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 15 with Jorvik City

Take the bus to Governor’s Fall and follow Erik and Madison over to Anastasia’s apartment.

See, it seems she still lives here. There’s an A. Silverglade on the fourth floor.

The Failed Worker

(Huffing and puffing…)

What happened? That little mutt stole my boss’ lunch! I’m totally going to get fired! What am I going to do? Help!

You don’t understand! This is my first week on the job and right on the first day everything has gone wrong. In the end, my boss told me to go and buy him some food, at least that I should be able to do…

I have to buy new food… But I don’t have any money with me… He will get super mad if I come back to work without his lunch…

Sob.

What? Do you want to help me?

My hero! Sob. I didn’t think there were such nice people. Sob.

Unfortunately, I don’t know if you’re fast enough to catch the dog…

Objectives: Catch the dog and get the food back.

Madison reassures Oliver of your dog catching abilities but Erik, of course, is not sure.

Rita is super fast! Of course she can catch it. I will help you!

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

But we have to find Anastasia…

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

But what about the dog? We have to help. You always say that we should help each other!

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

Sigh. Okay then. Let’s try to catch this dog then…

Thankfully you don’t have to chase the dog. He runs around the central block of the ice cream parlor in a counter clockwise direction. Stand on the sidewalk and wait for him to run past to catch him. Return to Oliver when you have caught the dog.

Boohoo!! Sob.

Thank you! You are awesome! You’ve saved my day.

Prince Charming

Thank you so much for your help! You have no idea what this means to me!

As for you, Prince Charming, shame on you! I will most certainly have a talk with Anastasia the next time I see her.

You wonder if I know Anastasia Silverglade? Well, I used to be her neighbor. Now I live just a few blocks from here.

It’s her dog, she has no control over it at all. Once she sat with him at a coffee shop with a latte and thought that would work as a dogsitter. 

Really? So you say you are looking for Anastasia?

Haha. Of course she isn’t home, she is probably shopping for shoes at the mall. 

Sorry, but I really have to hurry back to work with my boss’ lunch. But thanks for your help. If you are going to Anastasia, could you take Prince Charming with you so he doesn’t steal anyone else’s food.

Thanks so much! Bye!

Objectives: Talk to Madison.

Hehe. Prince Charming is so cute! Do you think he knows any commands? Like sit? Or play dead?

That It Would Be So Much Trouble

Sigh. I never thought it could be so much work to return a suitcase…

No, Madison! We are not going to skip returning it. What do I always say? You should always do the right thing. In this case, the right thing is to see that poor Carl gets his suitcase back. There might be something really important in it that he needs.

Rita, if you take… Prince Charming – isn’t that the dog’s name? Then we can go straight to the mall again.

Objectives: Take Prince Charming to Anastasia in the mall.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Head to the mall and find Anastasia in the clothes store on the first floor of the mall, all done up in her designer sweatpants and smug facelift.

Prince Charming! There you are, boy! You won’t believe what I’ve found! I need help deciding which of these two pairs of shoes I should get.

Quest completed

______________

Girl, Hey You, Yeah You

Oh? What do you think, boy? Should I take the white or the pink shoes? This is what I think, the white ones would be perfect for a Las Vegas wedding, while the pink ones are cute and flirty for a beach romance.

Prince Charming? What are these?

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

Haha, you don’t remember me? Erik Hightower? L.A.?

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

ERIK! Darling! Of course it is you! How are you? I scarcely recognized you without a suit. Haha. You seem… To not be wearing expensive clothes anymore.

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

Haha, there is no point in me running around in expensive suits at the moment. But hey, there’s something entirely different that I want to ask you.

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

Darling, let me interrupt you quickly. Girl, you, hey you. Yes, what is your name? Rita?

Out of the three of your, you seem to be the one with the lease sense of fashion. Would you be a darling and go get those pink shoes in black instead?

Apparently your lack of fashion sense does not make you qualified to talk to Anastasia. Prove to her that you know a little bit, and fetch her the shoes she requested from the shelf.

Magnifique! Merci cherie!

Oh you poor thing, I feel bad that you have to live like that. I mean, what happened? You were such a talented lawyer.

Exactly! You see, I’m looking for the owner of a suitcase. And the only thing I have is a license plate number. I know that you’re, at least you used to be, in the know.

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

Darling, you disappoint me and Prince Charming. Who am I?

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

Oh… Anastasia?

Not just Anastasia, I am Anastasia Silverglade, darling. I know who can help you. You should talk with my brother, Aaron Silverglade. He will no doubt be able to help you find the one you are looking for.

Help Aaron with the Presentation 

Oh, so you’re not from the Jorvik Gazette, you say?

Excuse me, what is the best way to start a speech? “Ladies and gentlemen,” “Dear citizens,” or maybe “Hey, what’s up”?

I think it might sound a little more hip if you say “Hey, what’s up”?

Oh, you’ll have to excuse me, I completely forgot to greet you! Or maybe I already introduced myself?

Oh, your name is Rita? Nice to meet you!

What about the end of the speech? Should you say “That’s all for me,” “Catch you later,” or maybe just “Goodbye”?

Did you say you need help finding a license plate? I’m happy to help you but first I need to sort our this speech. And right now I feel completely lost as to how I should do it.

If maybe you could help me out?

That’s actually a really good idea! I can stop working on the speech so you get the chance to add what sounds best!

Thanks a lot!

A Password Must Be Suuuper Hard

You want to know if I can help you find the owner of a car with this license plate? It is a tricky question. It all depends, you see. I have this computer, but it won’t be of much help, I’m afraid.

Sorry, you don’t understand my answer? Oh…

What I mean is that I would really like to help but the circumstances make it difficult. 

What circumstances?

Hard to say. As I said, it all depends on the circumstances.

Oh… Maybe I was a little unclear. What I’m saying that, I, in the current situation can’t get into the computer. I wouldn’t say that I have forgotten the password. I just lost it. Temporarily.

So unfortunately I can’t get into the computer. Otherwise I would have been happy to help you. 

Objectives: Hack into Aaron’s computer using GEMO.

Madison gets his attention. She has an idea how you can help Aaron get into his computer.

But I know a way around your password!

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

You do? Tell me! This is so exciting!

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

GEMO can do it! I downloaded a program for him that should bypass the password. Hehe, I tested it on Dad’s computer and it worked. Even though I already knew Dad’s password.

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

Oh, but Madison!

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

Hehe. You only have yourself to blame when you use “Madison” as your password. You know that a password should be suuuper hard? So that no one can figure it out!

I saw it in a spy movie. The spy had a password that was made of numbers, letters, and special characters! The movie was really exciting! We watched it together, Dad, remember?

Yes, that one, sure… But how does the GEMO work for this?

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

Dead easy! Just plug it in and then the program starts working, bypassing the security. But it is really hard… Rita, maybe you can help me? Here! Take the GEMO so you can connect it to Aaron’s computer.

GEMO will show on its screen which button to click on the control pad.

If the arrow shows green, click the same button.

If the arrow shows red, click the opposite button.

Click the arrows as they appear until you have discovered Aaron’s password and unlocked his computer.

How did you do that? I thought I would have to buy a new computer! Thanks so much Rita! Now I’m gonna try to change the password to something else that I will remember.

How You Do That? You Type!

You wonder which program to use to do a search? Erm, ahh… You search? And to search, you type. It’s there on the computer.

Maybe I’m a little unclear again. There, now I have opened the program that you should use. Now just enter the license plate number you want to search for and you will get the answer later.

Grounded Until 35

No, no, no. Where’s the wallet… That’s right! Cellphone! I mustn’t forget to bring it with me!

Rita!! I can’t talk right now, I have a ferry to catch.

What happened? Madison is gone! She disappeared when she and Jonas were in Fort Pinta yesterday. I’m sorry I didn’t take you more seriously Rita. Sorry.

But now I have to try and find Madison. I hope nothing has happened to her. She should have known better than to run away from Jonas like that. When I find her, I will make sure she is grounded until she’s 35!

You want to help me look for Madison, you say Rita?

Thanks! I appreciate it. But we will talk more about this later. I have to leave now. I’ll go ahead and we can meet up later at the mall.

We Probably Shouldn’t Interfere

MADISON?! MADISON?!

Rita, where do you think Madison could have gone? Jonas said he last saw Madison sitting at the bus stop when the bus to the mall arrived. When he checked again to see where Madison was, she was gone, so she must have taken the bus here. But where could she have gone then?

Would you say you have any idea of who may have seen Madison?

The janitor there? Hmm… He doesn’t look like he’s in the best mood. I think we should probably not disturb him.

Erik tells the Janitor about missing Madison.

I’m sorry to disturb you, but you haven’t seen my daughter by any chances?

Your daughter? Do I look like a babysitter? I have a job to do here, you know.

See this mess? There is soda all over the floor! And this is the kind of stuff I have to clean up, all because young people today have no manners. I’ll give you an example – I had just finished cleaning the floor when a small girl with big headphones came rushing in. She didn’t even wipe her shoes off and she wanted help to find a bus. Without even saying thank you, she rushed off and spilled a lot of soda.

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

Large headphones? Did she have brown hair and a pink dress?

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

Hmph! You bet she did. I hope she didn’t spill soda on you as well. But now I must clean this up.

That must have been Madison! Do you know which bus she took?

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

Bah! I don’t have time to check which buses the kids get on. Not when I have so much to clean up.

Rita, what should we do? It must have been Madison that the Janitor saw.

The Cafe from Jorvik Gazette

Rita, please say that you think she is alright. Why would she run away? She will definitely not be getting any Saturday candy for the next five years. 

Do you mean you have an idea of where we can start looking for Madison, Rita?

Do you say you recognize the cafe over there?

Yes, you’re right, of course! That is the coffee shop you showed me in the Jorvik Gazette!

It seems like a good place to start looking, hopefully, maybe someone there has seen her. Come on let’s go there.

You know it’s going to be a great episode when someone ends up locked in the trunk of a car…

Madison?! What are you doing in there? Come out from there, NOW!

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

I was going to save Nightdust! And when I got here to the square, I saw that stupid man’s friend who was in the newspaper too.

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

I don’t care what you are doing in the car, it’s not yours. So get out of there NOW! Otherwise, you will be grounded for… Well, a long time.

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

I can’t. I crawled into the trunk because that’s what they always do on TV. I was going to follow Nightdust’s kidnappers so I could save him. But somehow the trunk was deadlocked and now I can’t get out. Please help me! I can’t get out and it’s so dark in here.

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

Take it easy, we’ll get you out. We will have to go and find the owner. Did you see where he went before you broke into the trunk, Madison?

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

Nooo! You can’t talk to him, because he’s a horsenapper! I even found evidence to prove it when he went into the cafe! He is a horsenapper!

Rita, I know you believe me! The stupid man who kidnapped Nightdust, his friend is inside the coffee shop. He must not find out that we’re onto them and Nightdust’s whereabouts.

Quest completed

______________

Do You Want to Try? 

Madison, we’ll get to all that later!

Rita, we have to try and get Madison out now.

Hmm… It feels like the cover is on very tight, I don’t think I can get it open.

Did you say you want to try?

Try to unlock the trunk but it doesn’t open.

No luck for you either? What are we going to do Rita? We have to get Madison out of the trunk!

Quest completed

______________

I Don’t Like the Idea but I’m Counting on You

Rita, I don’t like that Madison has broken into a strange man’s car at all and normally it would just be best to try to find the owner and apologize…

Don’t you think we should do that?

Madison’s wild imagination of a “horsenapper” is hardly believable? Or… How did I miss that?! There’s a risk he might try to sue us for unlawful entry into the car, or libel… This is bad, this is really bad. What should I do? Nope, the best thing is probably to just walk in and hope for the best. Apologize, and then I’m going to make Madison apologize. 

Otherwise, she will have to live on brussel sprout pudding and fish balls for the rest of the year.

Rita, do you have an idea?

Will you enter the coffee shop and distract the car owner? While I try to open the trunk?

Okay… I don’t know if I like this idea Rita, but I’m counting on your. I’ll try to get Madison out while you keep the owner of the car in the cafe busy. 

Objectives: Keep Carl inside the cafe.

The Worst Service in a Long Time

(You recognize the man in front of you, it’s Carl. It must be Carl’s car that Madison has broken into. This is NOT good.)

You look very familiar… Hmm… What is your name?

But it doesn’t matter, do you work here or what? You must do?

I have been waiting for ice cream for a really long time now. I have to confess that the service today is the worst I’ve seen in a long time. A duck could serve me faster than you. 

What are you standing there for? Off you go. I’m a customer and the customer is always right. So make me an ice cream or I will make sure your boss finds out what a bad job you are doing!

(The best thing you can do to keep Carl there is to make him an ice cream. You’d better improvise!)

Objectives: Get Carl some ice cream.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with South Hoof

First, some real life advice from the sage Maggie: The customer is NOT always right. In any job, don’t allow people to treat you worse than dirt. Don’t be afraid to politely stand your ground. If the customer threatens to leave because you won’t kiss up to their rude attitude, kindly point them to the door. Your dignity and self worth is worth more than the few dollars they might spend at your store. If need be, bring a manager in to help you. If the manager won’t stand up for you, then that’s not a job you want to be working!

Back in Jorvik, head over to the ice cream cooler and scoop out the color ice cream the Carl tells you he wants.

Nom, nom, nom, nom!

Even though you are a lazy worker, you sure know how to make ice cream.

An Elephant Never Forgets!

What did you say your name was anyway? Or maybe you didn’t say? You look very familiar. As if we have really met before.

Hmm… You don’t work for Mr Anwir, do you? Haha.

You say you do not have a clue, hmm. There’s something fishy about you, I’m like an elephant when it comes to memory. I always remember a face, and I know that you and I have met before.

I’ll remember where we met before, but until then you might as well start doing some good. After all, you are just standing there like a fool. Come on, you must have lots of work to do. 

Objectives: Listen to Erik.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 5 with South Hoof

Speak to Erik inside the cafe to see if he has managed to open the trunk while you distracted Carl.

Rita! It’s really not working, I’ve tried but the trunk must be deadlocked. It’s impossible to open. We’ll never be able to get Madison out without a key. 

Quest completed

______________

An Idea is Formed

Rita, I think it’s best if we just talk to him. Did you say his name was Carl? Why are we whispering?

Do you have any idea of how to get Madison out of Carl’s car?

Do you mean we need a soda for it? If you go get the soda I can pay for it.

(If you could distract Carl, maybe you could get hold of his car keys to save Madison… But the first step is to get some soda.)

I never ordered a soda…

Ha… Ha… Um… Maybe I got it wrong then.

Try to open the trunk again.

Wait… There’s something fishy going on… That girl you were here with… What is her name?

Do you mean Rita?

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

Rita… Of course I remember that girl… Hmpf.

Uh…

Try one more time to open the trunk.

OUT OF THE WAY!

Are you sure you don’t want to stay here a while longer?

Get out of my sight!

On your last attempt to open the trunk, it works. Madison hops out and just in time as Carl comes stomping out of the cafe.

Madison! Pay attention! We’re going home and that’s it. You can bet that you will be grounded for many years to  come. Do you get how worried I’ve been? Do you get how worried your grandfather has been? He was beside himself when he came home from Fort Pinta and you were gone. 

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

Sorry… I am sorry. But, but…

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

No buts, we are going home now.

Madison? What suitcase? Don’t tell me you took a suitcase?

The Stupid Man’s Suitcase

Madison, enough! We’re not going to open that suitcase. Instead we must try to get hold of Carl to apologize and return the suitcase.

Quick Reminder

Hey all!

I have been getting a lot of questions asking about the game not loading, corrupted files, failed payments, etc. and I just want to reiterate: This site is only a walkthrough of the quests. I cannot help with technical issues with the game. I feel bad having to constantly repeat myself with the same response to these comments. Please understand that there are so many variables to technology not working. I am in no way knowledgeable about the workings of computers. I cannot, and will not help with tech issues because, one, I most often do not know the answer, and two, even if I did, I am not a tech blog and will not be liable to any further issues that may be caused by a reader following my advice. This is also a main reason why I will not advise on the use of glitches, namely the wild horse glitch. It is a glitch that is caused by tampering with the game files on your computer and can cause the game to crash. I’m sure all of you are good people but in the off chance someone wants to be a dick and blame me for their game crashing, I do not want to be involved with that, so all I can do is cover my own ass and make sure none of that could come back on me.

I understand that the official game support can be very slow in responding to emails, but unfortunately it is what it is. I apologize that I cannot be more helpful in this regard. Please understand that there are limits to the amount of assistance I can provide.

Hope you all are having wonderful springtime, and happy riding!

-Maggie ❤

Guardian Angel – Chapter 12: Closer

Even I’m shocked by my newly discovered confidence. I no longer mope around; instead, I make myself useful by doing the laundry, getting groceries or washing dishes. The hotel room is eerily quiet. (Rachel went to run errands.) Bored, I plop down on the couch and close my eyes, hoping to have a vision. But the only thing I see is Chase’s face. Frustrated, I sit up. Every time I close my eyes, he’s there, and he’s distracting me. I now only have two days left and no time for being distracted. My confidence wavers a little.

I need to focus.

For ten minutes, I lay with my eyes closed, hands clasped, whispering, “You can do this, Jamie. Concentrate.” However, because I have never tried to have a vision before, my attempts yield only a headache. I sit up, head throbbing, wondering what I’m going to do. I only have two days left, and I have had no visions recently. I have no new clues for where I need to be. Just as I’m about to give up, my vision is blackened and I find myself in the most vivid vision I have ever had. I’m in the car. I see the billboard, the calendar, the hedge, and an oncoming truck, swerving as if he has lost control of the two-ton vehicle. The usual screams fill my ears, and my instinct is to panic.

Realizing I have only a few seconds to gather clues, I take a deep breath and scan my surroundings. After only a split second, I’ve spotted a building that I recognize. I saw it in a magazine Ms. Ashton had.

Just as I am pulled out of my vision, Rachel enters the room.

“Jorvik City!” I yell.

“What?” she looks startled.

I stare at her, wide-eyed. “I need to go to Jorvik City.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The next morning, we’re in the car and on our way. My head is swimming with anxieties and the lurking knowledge that I am going to die sometime the next day. As I stare out the window, watching the scenery pass and knowing that this is only the beginning of our day-long drive, I can’t bring myself to think of my life outside of this. Miss Ashton, Rachel, Chase, Rose, the farm… For the first time I can remember, I don’t care if there’s a family and a life I’m missing out on. All I want is what I had. But I’ll never have it again.

A tear rolls down my cheeks. Tomorrow, I’ll cease to exist. I’ll still be living somewhere, but that’s not me. It may look like me, and she may have the same personality and lost memory as me, but she’s not me. What I have realized is that I stopped existing in two places as soon as I started making new memories. If that girl – the one who’s still alive – is me, then she’d have the same life and memories as me. She doesn’t. She has a family, a family that belongs to me but I will never know. She has dreams, dreams that may have once been mine but are now lost.

I no longer want my old life – her life… I just want this life.

My life.

The Chosen – Chapter 1

Whispers filled my head, I felt a strange sensation as if I was being lifted up and thrown around.

‘Natasha wake up!’ a sharp voice cut through my dreams and I woke up with a start.

‘Huh?’ I wiped my eyes groggily as I tried to get my bearings on where I was.

‘Get up! You’ll be late for your riding lessons!!!’ the sharp voice screeched from my bedroom door. I sighed, my step-sister Jasmine King, she didn’t ride but she was determined to make a fool of me so that she could show off how much more stylish she was than me.

‘Yeah, Yeah, coming , don’t get your tail in a twist’ I grumbled hauling myself out of bed and stumbled around the room trying to gind my riding clothes in my messy room.

‘Tasha!’  A pebble tapped my window and I turned to find my best friend Millie Starr, already in her riding clothes her chestnut hair in a sleek French Braid waving at me frantically.

‘Hey Lil!’ I opened my window welcoming the fresh Jorvik air.

‘Isolde is cross again, can I come in?’

‘Let me guess, issues with Loke again?’ I rolled my eyes and stepped back, letting my immaculate friend climb gracefully over the windowsill.

‘You’re not dressed yet?’ Millie eye my room with caution as she stepped over my muddy Jodhpurs and stained polo shirts.

‘Errr, yeah, Jas just woke me up’ I grinned sheepishly and found my new pair of beige jodhpurs, throwing them on I paired them with a navy blue polo shirt with JSA on it and corralled my hair into a messy high ponytail. I looked like a slug compared to immaculate Millie.

‘Let’s go!’ I cheered charging through the house into the kitchen where I grabbed an apple and a piece of bread without stopping and raced outside.

‘Echo!’ I waved my apple at a sleek Friesian stallion who was romping in the paddock with Millie’s Lippizaner.

‘Ever, quit it’ Millie giggled as Evermist lipped at her hair, her smoky gray hide shining with the morning dew. A sudden pain filled my head as I staggered backwards. My mind flew and I was suddenly standing in a strange stone circle with a strange lady, a dark-skinned girl with a brown pony tail, a fairs-skinned girl with her hair squashed down with a beanie, a weird hooded figure, and some strange squirrel with weird markings on it’s fur.

‘Ummm, hello?’ they didn’t seem to hear me and kept talking in hushed voices, gesturing here and there.

‘Tasha!’ a rough hand jostled my shoulder and my mind jolted back to the paddock. I saw a concerned Milliw with worry written on her face.

‘Tasha? Tasha, what is going on’ Millie asked gently.

‘I… I don’t know, c’mon, it’s over now, let’s just go get ready, Uncle Bob would never forgive us if we were late for a riding lesson. Millie looked at me sideways as we lead out horses over to the hitching rail where several girls where already tacking up.

‘You better tell me what’s wrong soon’ Millie hissed at me before turning away to adjust Ever’s bridle. I saw her pretty brown eyes were shiny with tears and hurt had replaced concern. This was the first time either of us had not told each other something. Echo nickered at me and nuzzled my hair, turning to him I concentrated on wrapping Echo’s legs with blue leg wraps. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Millie mount and canter away, we never left without each other.

‘Friend issues? I knew it would happen, you’re such a weirdo’ I turned to see Melissa smirking at me, her expensive Morgan, Opal, tugging on the reins anxiously as Melissa looked down at me from her high perch.

‘Get lost I growled swiping a towel across Echo’s rump, cleaning off any sticky grass. This was going to be a terribly long year…..

Do you have time to give me some more help? Oh, thanks! We should see if we can find a date that works for both of us, so I can teach you how to surf.

But now, back to work. Now that the boards are clean, we need to give them some fresh wax so our feet get a good grip.

A Safer Day with Jarl’s Insurances

jonas

Rita, sorry to interrupt you. But I have fantastic news! I’m going to get a new fishing boat! So Madison and I will be able to go fishing again soon. We’ll definitely avoid Cape Sorrow from now on, though. Ho ho!

Unfortunately it will take a while for the new fishing boat to arrive, but until then Jarl’s Insurances will lend me a temporary boat. I’m going off to get it today! I know Madison wanted to come along to Fort Pinta and watch the buses that pass through there. Ho ho! That kid is always up to some kind of game.

Right, back to that boat I’m about to get. It looks as though it’s really big. Not at all as cozy as a small fishing boat, but I’ll only be using it until my new one is ready.

Ho ho! Let me know if you need to travel across the water with a bunch of horses or friends. I can take you, which means I’ll have some use for this big boat from Jarl’s Insurances.

(growl)

Oops! That must have been my stomach. I haven’t eaten much today. Maybe I should make an omelet? Could you check the henhouse and see if there are any new eggs?

Objectives: See if there are any eggs in the henhouse.

Mr Anwir is a dangerous man, Rita… Ehm… You have to promise me to keep Madison away from him.

Mr Anwir… Eh… He isn’t afraid of consequences… Uhm… You have to be careful around that man.

Read each page of the newspaper closely and select the answer at the bottom of the screen the points to the clues that Madison found. When you piece all the clues together, maybe you can figure out where Madison went.

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

Page 1

With it’s central position and beautiful building, you can’t call Cafe Harp anything but the heart of Aideen’s Plaza. Everyday it attracts all kinds of visitors, locals as well as tourists.

Recently the cafe owners made a brave decision when they chose to renew its already delicious menu. Apart from adding a few new pastries, you can also buy yummy ice cream from their little ice cream counter. I, Delores Staunton, reporter at The Jorvik Gazette, set off to try the new menu and to find out what the visitors thought of the changes. 

Clue found: The Harp Cafe

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

Page 2

The visitors’ opinions varied more than expected. While some embraced the changes with open arms, other seemed tow ant the old and less varied menu back. One of the guests who wholeheartedly supported the new menu was Eijnar Alderson. He couldn’t wait to try out the new flavors. Something else that really mattered to him was how this was going to affect Leonardo’s. If the selection were to remain the same, or if Cafe Harp would offer new flavors which Leonardo’s doesn’t currently offer. 

However, among the guests who did not share Eijnar’s enthusiasm, was Mr Anwir, a not to chatty businessman. When he was given to opportunity to describe his feelings for the new menu at Cafe Harp, he chose the expression “Get lost!”.

Clue found: Mr Anwir

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

Page 3

On the other hand, Mr Anwir’s friend, Carl Delman, was of a totally different opinion. When he was asked the same question, the answer was “I love ice cream! I’m going to eat ice cream here every day of the week!”.

After having been given the opportunity to talk to all these different, but generally happy ice cream enthusiasts, who had gathered to enjoy the new menu at Cafe Harp, it was finally my turn to try it.

Kudos goes to Cafe Harp’s ice cream, but Leonardo’s is still the place to visit if you want to eat ice cream, with Cafe Harp trailing not too far behind. So if you’re in town, you should definitely visit Cafe Harp and check out their new menu. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Clue found: Carl

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

When you have finished reading the newspaper, speak to the Hermit again.

Sigh.

Rita, you shouldn’t let her get you mixed up in her games. Just recently she came home soaking wet, saying that a pirate had thrown her into the water when she was trying to  save her horse, Nightdust.

You see, Rita, we don’t have any horses on our farm, and Madison certainly doesn’t have a horse of her. She’s just making things up.

Of course I have a computer Rita, why are you even asking?

Nightdust, My Best Friend!

madison

I’ve come to see Nightdust every single day since you and I met him. I love him so much, he’s my best friend! You’re also my best friend, but I can hang out and play with Nightdust every day. Haha. We’ve been training, Nightdust and me!

You should say hello to him. I think he’ll remember you. I’ve told him lots about you; how you saved us from Cape Sorrow and when you captured that evil hen Samara. Nightdust has really been looking forward to meeting you again, haha!

So go say hello, Rita!

I’ll Be a Paladin!

madison

See Rita? I’m up on Nightdust’s back and he’s calm and happy! Haha, me and Nightdust have been training hard at this!

Together we’ve run away from dinosaurs, dragons, and even exploding volcanoes! Haha, all to be able to challenge you, Rita. Come on, pleeeease?! What do you say, agent? Haha! Shall we see who can be the first to fly their dragon to Hightower?

Or no, wait! If we’ve got dragons, then I wanna be a Paladin! I dunno what one is but I played a game one time and one of the characters was a Paladin. If we’re dragon riders, I can be a Paladin and you can be a… Knight!

Okay Knight Rita! Come on, let’s ride our dragons to the farm! Haha, I mean Hightower!

Objectives: Race Madison back to South Hoof Farm.

Education time kiddos!

The Paladins, sometimes known as the Twelve Peers, were the foremost warriors of Charlemagne’s court, according to the literary cycle known as the Matter of France.

In terms of fantasy RPGs, the Paladin is a class of Warrior that is fully devoted to kindness and ridding the Universe of Evil. They are very religious, and have an extremely strict honor code, as well as a soft spot for children and animals. In combat, a Paladin with a cause is almost impossible to defeat. They are the embodiment of Lawful Good.

This is a standard race across the open moors of South Hoof. The purple flowers mark flag edges of the checkpoints.

madison

Haha! That was soooo fun! We need to do that again!
