Contact the Spy Master

elizabeth_sunbeam

Before you help me collect the four copies from the Light Ceremony book, I have an urgent assignment for you.

The druids have an excellent spy in our service. He has a way to discretely contact all of our supporters. I’d like him to contact our supporters for us and let them know what is going on. This way everyone who is loyal to our cause can keep their eyes out for anything suspicious and let us know if they see that Dark Core is up to anything.

The Spy Master lives isolated from civilization, but as luck would have it he is not too far from us. Ride the path up to the paddock, where you do your druid exercises, but turn up the path to the left instead of the right where the paddock is. Somewhere up there, you should find the secret cave of the Spy Master.

Objectives: Find the Spy Master in his secret cave in the mountains west of the druid’s paddock and inform him of the current situation.

Rewards: 12 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 5 with Keepers of Aideen

The spy master is located in a cave in the mountains above Valedale.

Spy Master

spy_master

How do I know who you are? Hehe. I’m not called the Spy Master for nothing. I know everything that goes on in this area all the time. I know all about they things you shouldn’t know about. I know all the secrets and lies and surprises… And nobody knows it. But I handle only the information. It is not up to me to take action in the events. I collect information and sometimes I can share it with you if I feel the question is right. I already know what you want, but you need to ask me. Those are my rules.

Objectives: Speak with the Spy Master.

Rewards: 12 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 5 with Keepers of Aideen

Ask the Spy Master to put a watch out on Dark Core.

spy_master

So the druids wish me to activate all the spies to keep an on the activities of Dark Core… To watch for them doing anything suspicious that might mean they are starting a dark ceremony or something like that…

Chipmunk Shortage

spy_master

I would love to help you, but unfortunately all my chipmunks are out on an advanced sand digging course in the Sahara desert. That’s right. Chipmunks. What do they have to do with this?

Ho ho! They have a lot to do with this. A lot of spies send messages with carrier pigeons, I use chipmunks. You have no idea how many tunnels those little guys have under the ground here on Jorvik. The tunnels and pathways of the the chipmunks form and enormous network that pulses with activity, day and night. There are “fast tunnels” that allow them to transport messages faster than any pigeon could dream of… They are amazing, those little guys!

I’ll tell you more about it later, as right now I can tell you want to tell me that Steve has chipmunks at his place that might be convinced to help out while the other chipmunks are away on a course. Maybe you can ride down to Steve’s Farm and speak with the chipmunks there? You have good contact with them so it is probably best you start the discussion.

Okay then. You can use my horse transport if you like. It might not be as modern as the others, but it works. Most of the time.

Objectives: Locate the chipmunks on Steve’s Farm.

Rewards: 12 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 5 with Keepers of Aideen

The horse transport works just the same as the trailer transport does. When you get close enough, a menu will pop up  that you can select which destination you would like to go to. It costs the same as the trailer transport. You can also ride there the old fashioned way.

When you get to Steve’s Farm, speak with the chipmunk there in Steve’s designated chipmunk area.

First Book Part

spy_master

That was it! All the messenger chipmunks are on their way to their destinations. That should be everything… Maybe.

Ah… Yes. I know a great deal, as I said before. I shouldn’t say anything, but I’m going to anyway.

See you soon…

Find the Second Part

elizabeth_sunbeam

While you are already started on collecting the copies of the book, could you collect the second part. It is strange, but it is in the possession of Jon Jarl. Now that his spirit is at full strength, it shouldn’t be hard to get him to give it to you. By now you should know each other well.

Objectives: Ask the ghost of Jon Jarl for the copy of the book. He should be in his crypt.

Rewards: 12 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 5 with Keepers of Aideen

Ride to Jon Jarl’s tomb near Fort Pinta. Go inside and ask him for the second copy of the book.

jon_jarl_ghost

Who goes there? Who is it that disturbs my eternal slumber?

Ah. It is only you, Rita.

The second copy of the book is actually right here. It is locked in the Moon Chamber. Exactly Rita, in the chamber behind the door over there. There is only one person who can open that door and that is Linda.

Quest completed

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

jon_jarl_ghost

I sense that something isn’t quite right. Linda isn’t able to open the Moon Chamber yet. It is like she is missing half her power… Like she is missing her natural link with Aideen’s spirit…

Ride back to the Spy Master, he can help you help Linda.

But If You Know So Much…

spy_master

I know a lot of things that I can’t tell you, just like that. Things sometimes just need to unfold and happen as they do. Fate, you understand. But it is also true that I am working for the Keepers of Aideen and I am loyal to them with my whole heart and tell them everything I know. Unfortunately, I don’t know very much more about things affecting you that I can just tell you right now…

Just something small? Hmm… Let me think.

Yes! Ho ho! One little thing I can tell you is… (whisper… whisper… whisper)

Objectives: Listen to the Spy Master

Locate Meteor

linda

Think if it is true, I could get my real dear Meteor back! I don’t have another horse right now… I just couldn’t think of riding anything else after Meteor vanished. Can you ride over to Goldenleaf Forest and look for him? I hope the information you got really is true.

If Meteor is there and is confused, take my riding helmet with you. He should be able to recognize it and know that is mine.

Ride to Goldenleaf Forest and find Meteor wandering there. He follows a loop that circles around the north and east side of the valley.

Neeeeigh! Whinny!

Oh! What is with this… I think I remember that helmet! Finally something I recognize in all this strangeness! I’ve wandered here in these woods for a while now without knowing who I was or where I was! That helmet is waking up my lost memory.

I am Meteor and I walk in the light of the moon! Linda is my sworn partner and Aideen flows through the root of my soul.

And who are you and what have you done with my Soul Rider Linda? If I can ask…

WHINNY!

A Problem to Solve

meteor

Rita and Summerblaze? Aha, and you are also here to take me to Linda? That sounds wonderful! So maybe my memory is returning. I already feel how things and stuff are falling into place… But I still do not remember where I have been or how I got there.

Neigh. But… I have lost a shoe while I was wondering around in those woods… And without that you really can’t take me away from here. Can you help me look for it?

I’ll look up by that hill over there. The spot with the runestone… Yep.

Snort.

A Colored Memory

Neeeigh… My memory of what happened to me and how I got here is gone with the wind… I can’t picture anything of that… It is as if time has stood still and I have been trapped in a dreamless sleep. The only thing I can remember is that everything was… Was…

Moon Rider

linda

Thank you Rita! I feel whole again. It is like a dark veil has been lifted from my eyes and I can see clearly again. Meteor and I are reunited and I can feel the power of the moon flowing through me.

Once again I am a full-strength Soul Rider, of of the Keepers of Aideen.

Maybe you are wondering what the moon has to do with being a Soul Rider?

Rewards: 12 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 25 with Keepers of Aideen

Linda will tell you more about what the moon has to do with the Soul Riders.

linda

For a Soul Rider, the moon powers knowledge and wisdom. The moon also symbolizes the cycle of life, birth to death, and everything in between. Under certain circumstances and on special nights, you can see the past and sometimes the future reflected in the light of the moon on calm waters. The moon is full of advanced magic that the druids have studied for hundreds of years.

I really can’t thank you enough. May the moon’s light shine over your future and help you through difficult times.

Quest completed

Now that Linda has been reunited with her horse partner, return to Jarl’s Tomb to get instructions on how to open the Moon Chamber.
