Jack is going to try one last resort to get out of his job that he hates.

One Last Resort, Again

jack_goldspur

Listen, this isn’t working. If none of the candidates I’ve entered on the ballots want to run, I can’t have an election! It’s insane what bad luck I have!

I really need to get hold of Herman. He’s my last hope. If he can’t save me from this job, I’ll surely be forced to sit here and stare myself blind on budgets and forms until the day I die.

Hey Rita. I spoke to Johanna at Jorvik Stable and told her you would come. She repeated she didn’t know when Herman is due to return from vacation, but I don’t trust her, not one bit. She’s very devious. She knows, I promise you. Check with her, maybe she’ll say something to you. I won’t get anywhere with her it seems.

I have to continue the self-torment now. Read and write and all kinds of useless stuff. Tell me if you happen to bump into Herman, I need to speak to him.

 See ya!

Objectives: Ride to Jorvik Stable and speak to Johanna.

Ride out to Jorvik Stables and you can find Johanna near the stable area. Speak to her about the situation with Herman.

Herman? No, he’s on vacation and I don’t know when he will be back. Who were you again?

Quest completed

Return to Jill tomorrow.

Help Out at Jorvik Stable

johanna

Herman? Nah, I don’t know when he’ll be back from vacation. It could be quite a while.

Alright, so your name is Rita. No, never heard of you. But there is always stuff to do around here if you want to lend a hand.

Talk to Stein, the stable boy here, if you want to help. Here at Jorvik Stable, we respect hard work. Or you could try our contest if you like. Good riders are also something we look up to.

Objectives: Talk to Stein.

Stein is standing in the arena in the middle of the stables area. Speak with him and ask what you can do to help out.

Sturdy Work Requires Gloves

stein

Well, we always need help around here. There is much that needs doing, every day.

If I know when Herman is back from vacation? Vacation? He isn’t… Wait a second… I’ve promised not to tell… Heh. I almost slipped my tongue there.

You really need to see him?

Hmm… If I only knew you better, then maybe…

But listen, if you want to help out, go fetch a pair of working gloves in the shed over there. Here’s the key.

Objectives: Fetch a pair of working gloves in the shed.

Milk the Cows of Jorvik Stable

stein

As you might have seen, here in Jorvik Stables, we have other animals but horses! We have cows, pigs, and chickens too. We really like animals here. Sometimes it feels more like working at the zoo than in a stable, hehe.

One thing you could do is milk our cows. Do you know how to do it?

Excellent, then you know there is nothing to it. Fetch the bucket and milk the cows standing in the barn outside the stable walls.

Objectives: Milk the cows outside Jorvik Stables.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 20 with Jorvik Stables

Go out the south gate and dismount your horse near the cow barn. The milk buckets are in your inventory. Use an empty bucket on each cow, then return to Stein.

stein

Good! You’re really of great help, Rita. You seem to be trustworthy.

Feed the Horses of Jorvik Stable

stein

Our horses are the pride of Jorvik Stable. We’ve had horses here since antiquity. Did you know this used to be the Royal Stable?

We try to keep the horses outside as much a possible when they enjoy the weather, but then we have to feed them outside as well. Pretty obvious, huh?

Here’s some hay for the horses. Put it in their troughs outside the stable walls. They’re probably very hungry by now.

Objectives: Feed the horses outside Jorvik Stable.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 20 with Jorvik Stables

Go out the east gate and place the hay in the horse troughs and enjoy their happy dance. When you are done, return to Stein.

stein

Good! You seem to have a good hand with animals. We really like that.

Feed the Pigs of Jorvik Stable

stein

You should know, the pigs here at the stable are real gluttons. However much we feed them, they always want more. But that may be because I’m such a master chef! Hehe.

Rita, here’s a bucket of swill. Pour it into the pigs’ food troughs and they’ll settle down for a couple minutes at least.

Objectives: Feed the pigs.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 15 with Jorvik Stable

Go out the south gate and pig sty is across from the cow barn. Place the feed in the trough near the shelter, then return to Stein.

stein

Thanks. It’s good to have you here, you really know your stuff.

Quest completed

Return when you are Friendly with Jorvik Stables.

Test the Jorvik Stables Competition

barbara

Hey! You’re new here, right?

Nice to meet you, my name is Barbara and I’m responsible for Jorvik Stable’s contest. We’re very proud of it, even if parts of it… How can I say this… Aah! A bridge has broken, fields have been landscaped over the track, and you ride right through the horse paddock and… Well, you understand? It has seen better days, but it’s still very fun!

Want to try it? Cool! And listen, don’t worry about riding across the field that goes into the course. Filip Sunfield who owns it has said it’s okay that we ride there.

Objectives: Ride to the finish in the Jorvik Stables competition.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings

Reputation: 25 with Jorvik Stables

barbara

Well ridden! That went fast!

Quest completed
