A Real Star Stone

mario

Allo Rita! You know what? The stock has arrived for my very own store! Now it is only a question of who is going to work in it…

I have gotten in a lot of applications… But I have picked out three final candidates. But, I can’t decide on which one I should pick… They all look so good. Can you ride around and meet them and let me know which one you like the best?

Objectives: Speak with Mario again.

Tell Mario that you will happily help him out.

You can? Wow, I’m lucky to know you! Now listen here…

Star Candidate Number 1

mario

The first candidate for the job is… I don’t really know what he is called… He has just signed his application with “#357.” 

He looks very good anyways and you can find him in Moorland by the Dark Core landing place. Go there and interview him and see if he would be good for the job.

Objectives: Speak with #357 by the Dark Core landing place in Moorland.

#357 can be found hanging around near the loading containers on the beach behind Mrs Holdsworth’s house.

What are you looking at?

______________

Candidate from Dark Core

shady_guy

…Run a store in the Observatory… I am perfect for that…

…I’m good with people… You get it?

Why am I good for the job? What? Don’t you trust me? Are you calling me a liar?

…Okay… Okay… You seem nice, I know you didn’t mean that, I get it.

Okay. I’d be good for the job because I like stars, and if anyone tries to steal anything I’ll just throw them off the cliff… So Mario doesn’t have to worry about anyone taking his stuff. You get it? I really like planets and stars and stuff, so I would be perfect for the job.

Tell Mario I’ll see him up at the Observatory when he gives me the job.

Objectives: Ride back to Mario and tell him about Candidate #357.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with A.A.E.

He sounds promising… I think…

mario

So, you have spoken with #357? What was he like?

Star Candidate Number 2

mario

Candidate number two looks really promising, I have to say. It is a young girl, but she seems very competent and mature in her letter. In her photo she looks like she couldn’t be more than sixteen… But that doesn’t mean she can’t take responsibility for her store, does it?

Her name is Julie and she lives in Firgrove, at any rate. Ride over there and interview her and see if she might be the right person to run my store.

Objectives: Ride to Firgrove and speak with Julie.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with A.A.E.

Julie can be found near the house behind the horses for sale in Firgrove.

mrs_packard

Julie? Yes, that is me. Young?

Eh… That photo I sent with the application might have been a little old…

Quest completed

______________

Candidate from Firgrove

mrs_packard

I would be perfect for running the store at the Observatory! I am organized, mature, and good at climbing which would be useful if the gondola lift is ever out of service.

What have I worked with before? I was a mountain climber. I was the first person to climb to the top of the Garnok volcano in 1984, if you didn’t already know!

Mountain climbing and running a store are not really related? My dear… They are almost the exact same thing! Both require you to be prepared for anything and to never take your eye off the mountain!… Or the customer in the store anyways.

Ride over to Mario and let him know I would do a great job running his store.

Objectives: Ride back to Mario and tell him about Julie.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with A.A.E.

It’s always good to have someone with plenty of experience…

mario

You spoke with Julie, what was she like?

Quest completed

______________

Star Candidate Number 3

mario

The last candidate I found is a lady named Bella who lives at the Winery. She has been working in one of the stores there for a long time and now she thinks she is ready to run a store of her own. That sounds really good, doesn’t it Rita?

Ride over to the Winery and speak with Bella and see if she might be the one for the job.

Objectives: Ride to the Winery and speak with Bella.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with A.A.E.

Julie can be found standing outside the store past the Manor building.

Quest completed

______________

Candidate from the Winery

FIND A NAIL IN THE DRILLING TOWER? ARE YOU CRAZY? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

RUN A STORE AT THE OBSERVATORY? AHA, WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST SAY SO?

I AM PERFECT FOR THE JOB! I WORKED IN A STORE FOR MANY YEARS! YOU DON’T THINK SO?

AHA! WHY DID I QUIT? THE BOSS TOLD ME I WAS SCREAMING AT THE CUSTOMERS WHICH WAS BAD FOR BUSINESS! I CAN’T HELP THAT I WAS BLESSED WITH A STRONG VOICE!! IT IS GOOD TO HAVE A STRONG VOICE IN THE MOUNTAINS! I CAN CALL OUT ADVERTISING OVER THE MOUNTAINTOPS SO MARIO DOESN’T NEED TO SPEND A SINGLE SHILLING ON ADVERTISING!

Objectives: Ride back to Mario and tell him about Bella.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Well at least there wasn’t any possibility of mishearing her…

Surprise for a Star

mario

Allo Rita! You have helped me a lot with the Observatory. You have helped me so much that I have had some time to do something else for once!

I don’t ride very much myself, which I’m sure you already knew. I have studied horse anatomy and done analysis of some of the races around Jorvik. It is a hobby I have had for a long time that I have finally been able to spend a little bit of time on.

When you were helping me with the telescope, I found the time to put together a new race for you around the Obeservatory that I’ve always wanted to build. Would you like to try it?

You would? Good luck!

Objectives: Ride to the finish.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Try out Mario’s new race and then speak with him when you have completed it.

Fantastique! Amazingly well ridden, Rita. Come back and ride the track again any time you like.

Return to Mario when you are Popular with A.A.E.

Big Cleanup

mario

Hello Rita. Wow, have I been working hard! I’ve done a really big cleanup here! Now I just need to dispose of all this old scrap that I have piled together.

I ordered a container, but as usual, they didn’t manage to drive it all the way up here so it has been left down by North Link. If you could take the heaviest things down on horseback to the Gondola lift station, then I can take care of them from there.

You can do that for me? You are so kind!

Objectives: Collect the old scrap in the Observatory and leave it at the gondola lift station.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 50 XP

Reputation: 10 with A.A.E.

Click on the door of the Observatory to pick up a load of scrap, then take it to the front of the gondola lift station and it will be automatically dropped off. It will take several trips to clean out the Observatory. When you are finished, return to Mario.

mario

Fantastique! You are an angel, Rita!

A Table for the Balcony

mario

In the rubbish, I actually found one thing I thought was worth keeping. My old dining room table that I brought with me from France. It would be sad to throw that away… So I came up with an idea! We’ll put it out on the balcony and serve food there. If you could get it from the Observatory and put it up on the balcony, it would be wonderful.

You’ll do it? Thank you so much, Rita!

Objectives: Take the table and put it on the Observatory balcony.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 10 with A.A.E.

The table is in your inventory. Go up on the balcony and place the table on the far side of the balcony area. Return to Mario when you are finished.

mario

Merci Rita! If you like you can go and have a look at my beautiful table. But now we need to cover that table with food. It needs to be just like my grandmother used to have it when she cooked for big parties!
