Welcome to the Market

ferdinand

Good day to you! My name is Ferdinand, and this is Ferdinand’s Horse Market. Welcome! Who do I have the honor of addressing?

Rita? How nice. I hope you’ll find everything you seek, here at my most humble market. May I ask the name of your wonderful steed?

Summerblaze, what a lovely name! Horses are my life, you see. All the horses you see on this fare are raised on my family’s grounds, high up on Jorvik’s tallest mountain.

Every so often, my wife and I travel to the lowland to find new owners for our horses, but not whoever comes around! I would never let my horses be purchased by a careless individual, that would be unforgivable. I can see you are a decent and responsible human being, so if you see a horse you’d like to buy, it would pleasure me immensely to see you become its owner.

Anyhow, don’t let me take up any more of your valuable time, I’m going to… wait!

Someone is shouting. It sounds like my wife, and her voice is angry…

Rita. Uh… I have to remain on my spot here, would you be dear and see what’s befallen her?

Objectives: Speak to Ferdinand’s wife.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 25 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

You can find Ferdinand’s wife nearby in the market.

eddie

Good day to you! Pardon me… I must be looking hideous at the moment. Here I am, halfway down in the mud working, when visitors arrive! It’s so typical.

Who am I speaking to? Rita, nice to meet you. My name is Edvina, but you may call me Eddie, everyone I know does. We’ll have to speak later, I need to get my work done. Or, maybe you could help me?

Broken Wheels

eddie

Oh, Rita. Every time, it’s the same. The trip down the mountain is fine, on its narrow and horrid paths winding their way down the steeps. Later, when we’ve made it to civilization, to nice flat roads, things starts falling apart. I have no idea why this is, but it’s like this every time. Today the wagon wheel broke. It’s not hard to repair, you only need hammer and nails, but it takes time.

Know what? If I fix this wheel, maybe you can fix the other broken wagons? You can? Thanks. Have a look at the wagons here and see if you can fix the broken wheels you come across.

Return to me when you’re done. See you later.

Objectives: Repair all broken wheels on the wagons in the market square.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP, Rye Sandwich

Reputation: 50 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Dismount your horse and use the nails in your inventory to fix all of the broken wagon wheels. Return to Eddie when you are finished.

eddie

There! This wheel is finally repaired. Phew!

How did it go for you, Rita? Wow! You’ve fixed all the other broken wheels on our wagons? Not bad! Thanks a lot!

I think it’s about time for lunch. Here you go, take one of my homemade sandwiches. Enjoy your meal!

Sniff, sniff… Ham… Mustard…

SNIFF! Tomato… Aaaaaaahhhh…

Gimme! Quick!

Thanks. If I’m not gonna eat it? Not yet. First I’m gonna enjoy it’s lovely aroma… Sniff… Sniff…

Good day to you again, dear Rita. What is that incredible smell? Oho! A sandwich from my darling wife, how nice. So, could you help her with something?

You helped her fix the wagon wheels on our wagons? How noble of you. Let me give you this small trifle as reward.

I hope you’ll have a good time at our market. You are always welcome here.

No More Hay for the Horses

ferdinand

Dear Rita, how good of you to come visit us. You’re a ray of sunlight that brightens our day, mark my words. If you have some time to spare, could you help me with a small errand? Excellent, Rita, very kind of you.

You see, we need to replenish our stockpile of hay. Our latest trip took longer than anticipated, and we’ve almost run out. The Sunfield family are old friends of ours, could you ask Martina if she has some hay to spare?

Thanks, Rita. Return when you have the hay.

Speak to Martina on the Sunfield farm.

martina_sunfield

Hay? There will be no speak of hay. Why do you ramble about that? I don’t have time, there is work to be done. I don’t have time to slack off like certain others… None mentioned, none forgotten.

Shrimps for Hay

martina_sunfield

Ferdinand and Eddie needs hay for their horses? Why didn’t you say so in the first place? Of course they’ll get all the hay they need! But while I do that, you’ll have to help me around a little.

Take this bucket of old shrimp shells, and don’t wrinkle your nose now, and toss the contents in the sea. It might be smelly, but it’s like that sometimes. Everything can’t smell like roses and lilacs. Ride down to the docks north of our farm and toss the shrimp shells to the sea. Come back later, and I’ll give you your hay.

Objectives: Ride to the docks north of the Sunfield farm and toss the old shrimp shells in the sea.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Ride down the hill behind the house and dismount your horse to go out on the dock and toss the shells. Return to Martina when you are finished.

martina_sunfield

There we go. Again the farm smells of cow and pig manure. Aaaahh… Lovely!

Hungry Horses Hanker for Hay

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Bring the hay back to Ferdinand.

ferdinand

How wonderful it is to have good friends in times of need, don’t you agree, Rita? My horses simply love the hay from the Sunfield farm. You can’t get any better.

The Horses Have Escaped the Market

ferdinand

Woe and horror, Rita! Have you seen it? Our horses have gone nutty and torn loose!

Dear me, it must have been something in the hay that’s made them this wacky. I know they love that hay, but they never get this elated. I don’t know how long they can run around in this hijinks, but soon enough someone will get tired and hurt themselves, I just know it. Summerblaze seems to be a fast steed, maybe you can ride among them and stop them? You only need to get close to them, and you’ll see they quiet down.

Hurry up, Rita, and be careful. Good luck!

Objectives: Ride along all horses who have escaped the Horse Market and make them stop.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Run after each horse and get close enough to make it stop. Once you have caught all of the horses, return to Ferdinand.

ferdinand

Dear, sweetest Rita. My heart literally skipped a few beats. How fortunate you were around when this happened.

Market Rent

eddie

Hi, Rita. Could you help me with a small errand? I don’t have time to leave the market right now, but the rent is due. You’re a trustworthy person, could I consign this envelope with Jorvik Shillings to you? You only need to give it to Johanna at Jorvik Stables. It’ll be a quick job for a rider of your skill.

You can? Thanks, Rita.

Objectives: Give the envelope containing Jorvik Shillings to Johanna at Jorvik Stables.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

A Big Thank You from Ferdinand and Eddie

ferdinand

Dear Rita, you’ve truly been a great support to use here in the Harvest Counties. Imagine if you haven’t save the day and made those horses stop… I don’t want to think about it.

Eddie and I spoke earlier, and we both agreed that we want to give you a gift as a reward for everything you’ve done for us. Eddie was going to procure it, and I think she’s ready now. Go see her, and you’ll get a very nice present from us, and no, I don’t intend you what it is. That would ruin the surprise! See you later, dear Rita, see you later.

Objectives: Speak to Eddie at the Horse Market.

Rewards: 150 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP, Green Snugly Tights or Green Cardigan

Reputations: 500 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Go over and speak to Eddie.

eddie

Hi, Rita! Look what I’ve found in our wagon. It’s a small thing we received on our wedding day many years ago, and both Ferdinand and I thought it would suit you perfectly. Here you go! You’re a true friend, Rita, do come visit us soon. Bye now.
