The Unhappy Cow
Rita, we seem to be having a problem with Rosie, the cow standing over there by the wall. She’s been acting strange lately, hanging her head like she’s all sad or something. The vet was here but couldn’t find anything wrong with her health. I’m sure that something is not right, though, and I can’t bear to see her like this anymore.
It occurred to me that Mrs Holdsworth has a great hand with cattle. She used to have a farm herself when she was younger and she often tells stories about different cows she remembers, like they were all friends of hers with unique personalities. Maybe she knows what we could do to cheer Rosie up. Will you go talk to her?
Objectives: Go to Mrs Holdsworth and ask for advice on Rosie the cow.

Sad cow is sad 😦
The cow is sad, you say. And you want me to cheer her up?
The Dandelion Brew
I had the same problem with one of my own cows a long time ago. Her name was Wendy and she would get the most lifeless eyes sometimes… She would stand in a corner staring in front of her, like all hope was gone. But I cured her. Can you guess what I did? I remembered that she had escaped from the enclosure once and gone to my garden where I found her eating dandelions. So I went and got a bunch of them, and made them into a brew that I fed to Wendy. Did wonders! Why don’t we try if that works on your cow, as well? Get me five dandelions and I’ll make the brew for you.
Objectives: Pick five dandelions by the eastern stable wall and give them to Mrs Holdsworth.

Collect the dandelions and return to Mrs Holdsworth
These look fine. I’ll have the brew ready for you in a while.
Here is your brew, dear. Give it to her right away. And remember to talk to her while you’re at it, everyone appreciates a little attention once in a while. Good luck, dear!
Objectives: Give the potion to Rosie the cow and tell May what happened.

Let’s go make sad cow not so sad!
She actually does look happier. What did the trick? A dandelion potion? Would you believe that!
Thomas needs your help!
What in the world?! A cloaked rider just came by and took my original documents! Ride after him, will you? He’s just over there by the gate! Hurry!! HURRY! Catch him!
Objectives: Ride up close to the cloaked rider and take back Thomas’ documents.

Chase after the rider. He isn’t too hard to catch.
Well done. I will try to hide the papers better this time. Sorry? There was something strange with the horse? Like what? Ghost-like, you say? Um… I really can’t say – it all happened so fast. I’m sure it was just a regular horse with an unusually nasty owner.
Return to Thomas tomorrow.
And this isn’t the last time we’ll be seeing this mysterious figure… oooohhhh…..
Now it’s time to go meet a new character: James in Fort Pinta. My not so favorite little whelp…
Fort Pinta Advertising
Hi there, how’s it going? Welcome to Fort Pinta! I’m James and I run this place. Actually, right now I’ve got LOADS to do. See all those people? They all want to, like, enhance their trip here with a gallop along the beach. On my horses. And their children, they’re… they’re everywhere! At least that’s what it seems like to me.
Hey, this might sound weird, but I kind of like these people after all. They pay the bills for me, don’t they? In fact, I could use even more of them! Would you help me with something? Take these advertising posters and put them up on spots you think seem good. Everyone should know about my riding center!
Objectives: Put the posters up around Fort Pinta.
Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 45 XP

Put the posters up and return to James.
Wow! I can’t believe how great that looks! This place will be crawling with tourists!
You know what, I kind of have this… like, thing I want to do. Besides taking care of the stables. You might think it’s silly, but I totally love postcards and would like to make my own. Besides, that would be another good way of getting some money out of these people invading my riding tracks.
I want to take some nice photographs and turn them into postcards, but the thing is, I lost the memory card to my digital camera and every time I’m on my way to the store, it’s closed. I already ordered a card online and paid for it – it only needs to be picked up. Do you think that you could do that for me?
Objectives: Pick James’ memory card up at the shop and deliver it to him.
Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 45 XP
Reputation: 25 with Fort Pinta
This is the point where we learn that James is an incredibly scatterbrained and lazy person… But that just means more money for you!
The store with the memory card is only a few feet away. Collect the card and return to James.
Finally! You have my memory card. Thanks!
Hey, who am I kidding? I don’t have time to take the photographs either. Maybe you could do that for me, too? And then I’ll turn them into postcards!
Here is the camera. Ride around for a while in the area and shoot some nice views and stuff. That would be a great help!
Objectives: Take five pictures that James can use for making postcards.

Ride to the highlighted areas, and use the camera from your inventory.
It’s funny when your horse photobombs the picture.
These are awesome! You know what, why don’t you keep taking photos for me whenever you return here? The tourists will go crazy for these!
Trying Out the Fort Pinta Track
You know what, you really deserve to try out my riding track. I really think you should, actually – it’s totally great.
Objectives: Race the Fort Pinta track.
Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 30 XP
Reputation: 45 with Fort Pinta
This one is a little tougher than the Wild Bobcat track, and there are obstacles, that avoiding will take more time, but once you learn how to jump the track becomes quite easy.
Sweet, seems you’re a good racer AND a great photographer.
One more character to meet today, Mary, up at the Abbey.
Mary Had a Little…
Stop! Stop! Brave rider, you must help me! My little lamb Twinky got scared and ran away this morning. She ran off into the fields somewhere to the west, I think I can hear her bleating in terror from time to time. I can’t leave this place, I think I will faint if I take even a single step, but if you could find my little Twinky for me I would be so happy. Oh, I hope the wolves won’t find her before you… She must be so scared…
I know! You should pick some fresh grass and give to her, that’s her favorite food! That should calm her down and make her follow you or at least going at my direction. Feed her more tasty grass and she will follow you!
Objectives: Find Mary’s lamb that has leapt over the fence. Pick fresh grass and give to her to make her follow you.

You don’t need to pick ALL of the grass, I got the lamb home with eight pieces.
She’s pretty easy to find, she’s in the field west of Jarl’s Road going north.
You found her! You are truly the bravest of the brave! To go forth into the unknown fields of Moorland, face unspeakable horrors and return unscathed with the helpless and innocent, asking for nothing in return. You are truly a Moorland Champion; I shall put in a petition for the town hall to build a statue in your likeness! In solid gold! Thank you dear rider, thank you!
Aww, shucks, you’re too kind!
