Speak with Builder Donald near the broken bridge in Nilmer’s Highland. He will assist you with repairing the bridge so that you can cross to Harvest Counties.

All of these quests can be completed in a day by purchasing the needed materials from Bulldozer Billy at the G.E.D. construction site in Moorland. If you cannot afford to purchase extra materials, or choose not to, these quests will take 6 days to complete.

A Way Over the Water

mr_bucket

Stop! Halt! You can’t ride over the bridge… Wait a little.

Whew. It was lucky I managed to stop you. That could have gone very badly… Are you on your way to the Harvest Counties? I’m sorry… But that isn’t going to happen right now. Why? 

Well… I have good news and bad news. The bad news is the bridge is broken… Completely wrecked after the last winter. When the ice broke up the bridge almost ripped off and a big hole opened up in the center of the bridge. It is completely impossible to gt across right now. 

The good news is that I am here to fix the bridge! So, soon we should have it all fixed up so you can ride right over whenever you like.

I am Master Builder Donald, and who might you be? Very nice to meet you Rita.

How long is it going to take? Hrmm… Honestly this will probably take a while. I didn’t know that the bridge was so high… I really don’t like heights, you understand. Just inspecting the damage to the bridge is very difficult for me…

You can do it? Wow, that is really kind of you! Ride out and see how bad the damage is and come back and let me know. 

Objectives: Ride out on the broken bridge and inspect it.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Inspect the couple places on the bridge, then return to Builder Donald.

mr_bucket

How did it look?

Uh oh. There seems to be a lot to do… Boards that are missing, beams that need to be refastened, mortar that is rotting away, and it is also completely unstable. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to walk out on it… So how am I going to fix it?

You are going to help? Wow… Thank you. You are so nice!

A Plan to Go By

mr_bucket

Okay, it is time to get going then! You know, if we repair the bridge then I can finally go home to Jarlaheim too! I haven’t been home since the winter, you understand. Why didn’t I take the ferry? Well… Let’s just say I don’t really like boats… Water higher than my ankles just isn’t for me! It is a good thing I have a shower instead of a bathtub or I might not even be able to wash myself!

But now we are going to have to repair the bridge. I think we need to start off with looking at the blueprints for the bridge. That way we will know how it was built from the beginning. A good idea, right? You think so too?

Great!

Go look and see if you can find the blueprint in my truck, Rita. I’m not exactly sure where I put it… But it is here somewhere. Come back when you find it so we can get started on really fixing the bridge!

Objectives: Look in Builder Donald’s truck for a blueprint. Bring it back to him when you find it.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Search around near the large dumptruck. When you find the blueprint, return to Builder Donald.

mr_bucket

Did you find the blueprint? You did? Great. Let’s get started!

______________

The First Step to a Repaired Bridge

mr_bucket

Hmm… Now we need to take a look at the blueprint.

Hrmm… What do you think, Rita? Where should we start?

With the floor of the bridge? That sounds about right. If there is no bridge floor, then nobody is going to be able to get across to the Harvest Counties.

Okay. Then I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that I forgot to bring the boards to build with… Okay, well not exactly forgot… But they are so high up on the shelf in the warehouse that I wasn’t able to climb up the ladder to get them.

The good news is that I have all the machines we need to make our own boards. Good, right? They were down on the floor of the warehouse, so I brought them instead. The saw, the planer, and the treatment machine. Everything is in the boxes behind the truck.

Okay. We are all set. But the machines are not put together yet. Here, take this toolbox and put together the machines. Come back when you are done.

Objectives: Use the toolbox to assemble the three tools behind the truck.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Moorland Stables

Dismount your horse to use the toolbox on each shipping crate. When all three machines are built, return to Builder Donald.

mr_bucket

Well done Rita!

Now the machines are done, we can begin to make boards for the bridge.

A Board’s Humble Beginning

mr_bucket

There we go. Now we are almost started, Rita! I can almost taste the salty air from the harbor in Jarlaheim! I really miss home. But, back to work! Now we need some logs to make boards out of. Where do I have logs? Hmm… I think I might have forgotten to bring any logs here.

Do you know where we might be able to find some logs around here Rita? At the abandoned farm between here and Moorland there are logs nobody wants? That sounds perfect!

But, they need to be good quality logs. Ride over and bring a log back here. I’ll inspect it to make sure we can use it. 

Objectives: Collect a log for Builder Donald by the abandoned farm between the bridge and Moorland Stables.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 101 with Moorland Stables

Pick up a log from the pile outside the fence around the abandoned farm. When you have the log, return to Builder Donald.

mr_bucket

This log looks great. Let me have a closer look…

Hmm…

Yep. Logs like this will be perfect to make boards from. But I need this one myself… The handbrake on my truck is not working properly. If I put this right in front of my front wheels, then I won’t have to worry about my truck rolling off down the hill, which will probably never happen, but I will still walk around worrying about it.

Anyways, great work!

Quest completed

You can now do daily quests to make logs to build on the bridge. When you have made the logs, go down onto the bridge and place the logs in the specified area. You must complete the first daily quest to be able to purchase additional logs from Bulldozer Billy.

The Repairs Continue

mr_bucket

There, I can see that you have placed out some of the boards. That was very good. Now we should start with the next repairs. We need to be sure that the beams that hold the bridge up are properly attached to each other. For this we need nails, lots of nails!

The good news is that I had lots of nails in my truck. The bad news is that they fell out of the back on the way here… It was so bumpy they just flew out all over the place.

But I think we should be able to collect the nails we need pretty quickly.  Then we can get back to fastening the beams again. Or maybe you can do it? I don’t think I can manage to go out on the bridge at all. 

Ride out to the road to Moorland Stables and see if you can find all the nails that fell off the truck Rita. Good luck!

Objectives: Look for the lost nails along the road to Moorland Stables.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Moorland Stables

Ride around the abandoned farm and pick up all of the lost nails, then return to Builder Donald.

mr_bucket

Did you find the nails, Rita? You did? Great! Why do you look so unhappy? Almost all of them are bent? Oh no.

What should we do?

Quest completed

______________

The Smith and the Nails

mr_bucket

Hey there, Rita. We really need new nails to be able to fix the bridge. If we only have these bent nails, it is going to take a very long time to fasten the beams so they are properly attached.

You know this part of Jorvik. Do you have any ideas where we might get some new nails in Moorland?

The blacksmith? He can make nails? You say he can make anything? Okay. We don’t really have a choice, but I’m hoping he can make nails as good as the industrial ones I brought with me. It might be more than he can manage.

I trust you. I hope it goes well. We’ll see you later!

Objectives: Ride over and ask Conrad Marsdeen, the blacksmith in Moorland, about making some nails.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Moorland Stables

Well, you don’t know Conrad, then, sir. I did say he can make anything!

Ride down to the forge and speak to Conrad about making some extra special nails for the bridge.

conrad_marsdeen

Greetings, Rita.

Nails?

You want to have simple, normal nails? This is a little below my level of craftsmanship, Rita…

______________

The Best Nails in the World

conrad_marsdeen

Well. I accept your assignment, Rita. I can make some nails for you so that you can fix the bridge to the Harvest Counties. Some of the world’s finest metal is mined from the Grey Dew Mountain, and it is a noble cause to restore a safe pathway to Jarlaheim and Jorvik Stables.

Listen to me, Rita. These will be the most amazing nails that Jorvik has ever seen. You will be able to fasten anything together with these nails and they will never loosen. I swear it.

But to begin a masterwork, we need raw material and only the best will do. 

Ride to the Demascus Mine and break off some iron ore I can use. Ride over and come back when you have enough.

Objectives: Break off some iron ore in the Demascus Mine and return to Conrad.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Moorland Stables

Ride into the mine behind the forge and dismount your horse. Approach the lumps of stone and use the pickaxe to collect ore off of them. Return to Conrad when you have enough iron.

conrad_marsdeen

This ore is exactly what I need to make the very best nails.

Nails with the Power of Garnok

conrad_marsdeen

Greetings, Rita. Your nails are almost ready. But to finish them, I need the last and most important ingredient, ash from the Garnok Volcano.

Rita, near me is an unmarked and simple box. The box contains the most powerful ash in the world, ash from the Garnok Volcano. This dust is what is going to transform your nails from farmers into kings.

Bring me the box, Rita and be careful. I went through great hardship to bring home that box. 

Objectives: Fetch the box with the Garnok ask for Conrad.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Moorland Stables

These aren’t your normal farmer nails. These are KING nails, and require you address them as such…

conrad_marsdeen

Pick up the box next to the fence and bring it to Conrad. 

Good, Rita. Now let’s forge the nails.

Quest completed

You can now do daily quests to make nails to build on the bridge. When you have made the nails, go down onto the bridge and place the nails in the specified area. You must complete the first daily quest to be able to purchase additional  nails from Bulldozer Billy.

At this point, if you choose not to purchase additional materials, you must wait until the next day to be able to complete the daily quests for more materials.

Sealing the Bridge

mr_bucket

Now the beams are securely fastened, Rita! You know what? When the bridge is whole again, I am going to go back to Jarlaheim as fast as I can. The only stop I am going to make is t the inn on the other side of the bridge. I wonder if it is still open? The bridge collapsing must have been a disaster for them.

But anyways, back to work. It is time for us to start with the next step of the repairs. We need to seal the bridge properly so it doesn’t suffer any future cracks or ice damage again.

Unfortunately, we can’t start right away… How can I put this nicely? I guess I could say I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that I have received extra money fro the council to use only ecological material in the construction, so I had lots of wonderful vegetation based caulking. Good right?

Unfortunately, now the caulking is all gone. It was on the back of the truck, but when I looked five minutes ago, it wasn’t there anymore! Someone must have taken it.

Wait. Look over there! It looks like some of the caulking on the ground. The bag must have leaked. It is a clue, Rita! Follow the clues and find the thief!

Objectives: Follow the trail of caulking and find the thief. Return to Builder Donald later.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Follow the trail of the caulking. When you find the culprit, return to Builder Donald to report.

mr_bucket

What? Birds had eaten up the caulking? Yes, it did contain lots of sunflower seed. But it was a whole bag! How did they manage to fly away with it? It was a lot of birds? Yes… Birds can be pretty clever, you know. They must have all helped to fly away with it, I guess. It sounds really strange doesn’t it?

Anyways, it is what it is… Does this mean I won’t get to see my beautiful Jarlaheim again?

How are we going to get caulking now, Rita?

Hrmm. I have no idea what to do. How am I going to get home to Jarlaheim? You know from y house I can hear the horses at Jorvik Stables in the morning. It would be wonderful to be able to hear them again. Sigh…

______________

Most Ecological in Moorland

mr_bucket

What? You can make caulking? Okay. How?

Mrs Holdsworth? No, I’m not familiar with her unfortunately. She is good with anything ecologic? Okay. I don’t really know, but we don’t really have a choice. If you think this is a good idea then you should just ride over and ask her.

Good luck, Rita!

Objectives: Ride over and speak with Mrs Holdsworth about caulking.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 50 with Moorland Stables

Ride down to Mrs Holdsworth’s house and ask her about making ecological caulking.

mrs_holdsworth

Ecological caulking? Hmm… I haven’t made that before… But it sounds exciting.

______________

Base for a Good Paste

mrs_holdsworth

So, we need to make some caulking to repair the bridge between the Harvest Counties and Nilmer’s Highland? It would be fantastic to be able to travel to Jorvik Stables again, I’ll help you!

This is an old recipe for caulking that I learned from my old grandma. In my family it has been used both as caulking and as a topping for sandwiches, it is delicious actually. Even if it sticks to the roof of your mouth… But this is a secret family recipe, so you have to promise me not to share it with anyone else. Do you promise?

Okay. The first thing we need to do is cook up a base for the caulking. I have a few ingredients here, but we will have to go get the rest out in nature. The plants we need are here and there around Moorland and shouldn’t be too hard to find.

Objectives: Find the plants around Moorland that Mrs Holdsworth needs to make the caulking.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 50 with Moorland Stables

Ride around near Mrs Holdsworth’s house and collect the plants she needs for the caulking base. When you have all of them return to her.

mrs_holdsworth

Great, Rita. These are perfect. Now we can start to cook them up.

______________

A Barrel of Oats Ordered

mrs_holdsworth

Doesn’t that smell wonderful? That is the base for the caulking cooking in my pot in the kitchen. So now we need to add the final ingredients to the mix so it will become perfect ecological caulking.

The first thing I need is a barrel of oats. I won’t need all of it at once, but it is a big bridge, so we should order enough that we have some to make more later. In Moorland Stables, there are barrels of oats all over the place. Thomas has said that I can take as many as I need, so please ride over and pick one up for me. 

Come back here when you have collected the barrel. Good luck!

Objectives: Bring a barrel of oats from Moorland Stables to Mrs Holdsworth.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Moorland Stables

Go into the courtyard or near the stables and collect one of the barrels that are sitting around. Return to Mrs Holdsworth with it.

mrs_holdsworth

Excellent Rita, now we have the oats we need and some for later.

Quest completed

You can now do daily quests to make caulking to build on the bridge. When you have made the caulking, go down onto the bridge and place the caulking in the specified area. You must complete the first daily quest to be able to purchase additional  caulking from Bulldozer Billy.

At this point, if you choose not to purchase additional materials, you must wait until the next day to be able to complete the daily quests for more materials.

Last Part of the Repairs

mr_bucket

This is going really well. Now we need to keep going, it is only the last stage of the repairs left. Come on now Rita, together we can get this done! Soon you will be able to ride over the bridge, through Greendale, out to the coast and all the way to Jarlaheim and Jorvik Stables

Now, the last thing we will need to do is fasten the cables to the pillars that hold up the bridge, but right now they are still too unstable. To make this work, we need to solidify the foundation first and when that is done we can connect the cables between the pillars and the foundation. 

So, first we will need to mark off where the foundation should be. Take these marking sticks and put them down in the ground in the right spots.

Objectives: Stick the marking sticks in the ground close to Builder Donald.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 50 with Moorland Stables

See, it’s funny because they are actually twigs. We don’t need those fancy GPS thingamajigs…

(Also, Chrome recognizes ‘thingamajig’ as a real word… Ha!)

When you have placed the sticks, return to Builder Donald.

mr_bucket

Excellent. Now we can begin to fix the foundations!

Quest completed

______________

Cement Lesson, Part One

mr_bucket

Now it is time to begin to build the foundations. For that we need cement. So, now we have come to mixing the cement. I have both good and bad news to tell you.

The good news is that I am an expert in mixing cement, best grades in my university! The bad news is that I get dizzy easily, that if I even see a cement mixer spinning, I faint pretty much on the spot.

But, I am going to tell you exactly what to do, Rita. You are going to be an expert in no time at all. We will start with a little bit of cement and later when you know what you are doing, you can mix as much as you want.

Step one, when you are making cement, is to pour the cement into the cement mixer. There are sacks of cement near here, take them and pour them in the cement mixer over there. The cement powder should go into that grey funnel. 

Objectives: Take the cement sacks and pour them into the cement mixer.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 50 with Moorland Stables

Go over to the stack of cement bags, and pick two of them up, then place each one into the grey funnel of the cement mixer. Return to Builder Donald when you are finished.

mr_bucket

Good. It wasn’t that hard, was it?

Quest completed

______________

Cement Lesson, Part Two

mr_bucket

The other thing we need when mixing cement is water, completely normal water. It is a long way down to the water here, but I threw down a hose and was lucky to hit the water. The hose is connected to a pump, so you can get water there. Yes, I know. I should be able to do it, but the pump is so close to the edge that I can’t just go anywhere near it again…

Take the bucket and fill it with water. Then pour the water into the blue funnel on the cement mixer. Pretty easy, right?

Objectives: Fill the empty bucket with water and then pour it into the blue funnel on the cement mixer.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 50 with Moorland Stables

Ride out onto the bridge and fill the bucket with water. Then take the bucket up to the cement mixer and pour it into the blue funnel. Return to Builder Donald when you are done.

mr_bucket

That went well. It wasn’t too difficult, right?

Quest completed

______________

Cement Lesson, Final Exam

mr_bucket

There. Now the cement mixer is working as it should. Now it is time to see how it turned out. Are you curious? I’m really excited!

There is a bucket over there, pour the cement into it and bring it here so I can see how it turned out. 

Objectives: Take the bucket that Builder Donald gave you and fill it with mixed cement from the cement mixer. Then take the bucket and show it to Builder Donald.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 150 with Moorland Stables

Let’s see how you did as a student of cement mixing…

Let me see. That cement is perfect! You have a real talent for this, I have to say.

mr_bucket

You are still an inexperienced cement mixer, so to make sure you can’t cause a disaster for the whole project, unfortunately I can’t let you just use the cement mixer however you like. Once a day I can let you have it, more than that and we would be putting the whole project at risk. You might think this is just old superstition, but I don’t think we should take any risks.

Quest completed

You can now do daily quests to make cement to build on the bridge. When you have made the cement, go down onto the bridge and place the cement in the specified area. You must complete the first daily quest to be able to purchase additional cement from Bulldozer Billy.

At this point, if you choose not to purchase additional materials, you must wait until the next day to be able to complete the daily quests for more materials.

Keep working on the bridge until the completion bar is filled.

A Finished Bridge

mr_bucket

Wow. What a handsome bridge! We did a great job Rita! Mostly thanks to you.

You know what? To really celebrate the bridge opening I think we should light off a firework. Then everyone will see that we have fixed the bridge!

Take this rocket and put it in the bottle here beside me and you’ll get to see a real firework!

Objectives: Put the rocket in the bottle beside Builder Donald to set it off.

Rewards: 75 Jorvik Shillings

Go up to the hill across from Builder Donald and dismount your horse to set the rocket in the bottle and light it off. Return to Builder Donald when you have set off the rocket.

mr_bucket

Excellent Rita! Now we are done! I’m going to go back to my home in Jarlaheim as fast as I can, I just need to clean up here first. Come and visit me in Jarlaheim sometime if you are riding past, it is the most beautiful city on Jorvik if you ask me. I live beside the city hall where our well-respected mayor Evelyn has her residence. 

Hmm… Wait a minute…
