The Final Identification

alex

Listen, when you go to Silverglade Village, whatever you do, don’t get too close to this man. He’s dangerous, ok? I don’t mean to sound like your mom or anything, but I can’t let anything happen to you; we need you in this, Rita.

Take these binoculars, they’re pretty good. Stay at the other end of the square and watch the post office through them. There is a small set of coffee tables there, so take a seat. You may have to wait there for some time before Mr Sandman appears, I suppose. Let’s not hope it will be for too long.

Objectives: Get to the coffee table at Silverglade Village square and watch the post office through the binoculars.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP, Construction Pants

Reputation: 35 with Keepers of Aideen

The coffee tables are behind the Star shop right inside the north entrance to the village.

Return to Alex once you’ve done your scouting.

So Mr Sands and Mr Sandman is the same person? That explains it. Now we know what kind of tragedy Justin is involved in; he’s not only gone to visit his grandfather, but is probably being held prisoner where ever the Dark Core bring their victims to be brainwashed into joining their sorry pack. And now we know why the Baroness has been acting so strange, as well; she has in fact been married to Mr Sands himself, the slimiest slug in all of Jorvik! I can see why she’s keeping that to herself.

The Truth Unfolds

alex

While you were down in the village both Godfrey and the baroness arrived. Let’s see what the Baroness has to say about all this.

Objectives: Ask the Baroness what she has to say.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 35 with Keepers of Aideen

Interrogation time! I’ll play Good Cop, you be Bad Cop….

The Baroness and Godfrey are now standing in front of the Manor

baroness

Oh, dear. This is so embarrassing. I’ll explain everything, of course I will. The way I’ve been behaving, it’s… It simply has been nowhere near the customary dignity of a grown woman. I can only blame it on the constant stress I’ve been under lately, what with the G.E.D. threatening to destroy this island and the vineyard ruined both by them and the merciless winter. I’m too old for all this – that must be it. It makes me act like a wicked old hag. Let me tell you girls what happened.

The Explanation

baroness

A day with really bad weather, I freed Linda from her work around the stables and had her come to the castle to clean up in the attic. Well that was a mistake. Apparently I had an old wedding photo lying around; one of me and the man that used to be my husband, Mr… Sand… man. You’ll have to excuse me, but I just can’t say his current name, I just can’t. Anyway, so the girl found this picture and recognized my husband as Mr… well, as that man. Can you believe the dread I felt at that moment? I panicked – that knowledge could absolutely not leave the castle! It would destroy this family’s reputation, built-up during hundreds of years! I had Godfrey lock Linda in the castle so she wouldn’t tell anyone. And what’s more, this horrifying man Mr… Sands – there I said it – doesn’t seem to have aged a day since I last saw him, 45 years ago!

A complete and utter scandal, that’s what this is. Let me tell you girls more… Perhaps we could work something out, together?

Objectives: The Baroness has something more to say.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 35 with Keepers of Aideen

Well, looks like we won’t have to beat it out of her. This time…

baroness

I’m so ashamed, girls, I really am. And yet there’s something that makes me fret when I think of this girl Sabine. She’s had some sort of power over me, I believe. If there was such a thing as darkening of another’s mind, I would say she had used it on me. My head has been feeling different… lighter, since she went away.

Quest completed

Go tell Alex what you have just learned from the Baroness.

A Slight Case of Compromise

alex

You’re right, Rita, the Baroness is a powerful ally. It’s her family that has the greatest influence over Jorvik and we could need her help in all the problems that seem to be waiting around the corner. She should be especially useful in our search for Justin, who we now know to be her grandson. In exchange for her help, we’ll keep quiet about her secrets.

Objectives: Ask the baroness if you have an agreement.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 35 with Keepers of Aideen

Return to the Baroness and speak with her about your agreement.

baroness

Oh girls, I will do anything I can to help you from now on. And I’m still rather powerful, that I’ll tell you.

Free Linda

There was the key! I always hide it in my shoe but just forgot it this time. Here you are. You and Alex can ride down to the castle and lock up the castle door and let your dear friend out.

A Happy Linda

linda

I… I’m out! Finally! And it’s all thanks to you, guys! Did you find the book pages? So what’s happening here, if I may ask? The baroness apologized, I see… Well, I haven’t exactly had a blast in the tower… But at least I’ve had the time to read a lot of books. So, are you a friend of Alex? I see, thank you so much for letting me out. Now maybe you could tell me what’s happened while I was in there? I want to know EVERYTHING.

Objectives: Update Linda on what has happened while she was in the tower.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 35 with Keepers of Aideen

Give Linda all of the juicy details.

linda

Whew, there seems to be a lot of weirdness going on! The Dark Core are active in Jorvik again with Mr Sands as their leader, the druids want to summon us girls once again, Justin Moorland is gone… Dark clouds are hovering over this island. It seems like the adventure has only just begun.

The End is the New Beginning

alex

So, a lot of things are indeed happening here. I really appreciate your being able to help me in this, Rita, you have been fantastic. Next thing I’ve got to do is finding two other girls called Anne and Lisa. They make a little team together with Linda and me, you see, and we have to continue working for the Keepers of Aideen in favor of this precious island. Until I find them I, Linda, Elizabeth and the baroness will keep on looking for Justin. I would very much like it if you joined us, Rita. Will you please join us?

Objectives: Tell Alex that you want to keep on helping her.

Rewards: 250 Jorvik Shillings, 90 XP

Reputation: 125 with Keepers of Aideen

Well, you can’t say no!

alex

I’m so happy you said yes! Welcome to our little group. Before we continue the search for Justin and my other friends, Elizabeth wants you to practice your riding skills. You need to work seriously: get the best equipment there is, work to increase your reputation, race the tracks here in Silverglade in order to get as good results as you can possibly get.

I’ll find you when it’s time to continue this adventure. We will accomplish great things together, Rita, that I’m sure of. Because, you know, this is definitely not the end. I will contact you when you are ready for new adventures.

quest-castle_cut_scene

The island of Jorvik, otherwise brimming with life and joy, now seems shadowed by a cloud of neverending problems.

The citizens and their beloved horses have already experienced a long and harsh winter during which the feeling of something dark reining over them grew ore and more intense.

What if that winter was only the beginning of a dark era?

Many questions remain unanswered. Will the G.E.D. succeed in fully exploiting Jorvik’s unique nature? What will happen when their drills reach the core of the island?

Does anybody really know what lies inside that core?

The druids on the island, the Keepers of Aideen, have started summoning their four riders to battle the evil organization Dark Core. An organization that has seemingly lured the innocent Justin Moorland to join them in their clandestine plans.

What is your role in all of this? It’s unknown, but it appears to be of importance. What you know is that Alex and Elizabeth want you to work hard on your riding skills, earn a good reputation and reach the top of the high score list. All to reach the goal of being the best rider you can be: a rider ready to meet whatever may come her way.

And so it begins…
