Bored Horses at the Market

ferdinand

Dearest Rita, it’s really lovely that you’ve come to visit us. You’re a little ray of sunshine sent to brighten up our day, believe me! If you have some time on your hands, maybe you could help me with a little errand? Oh, wonderful Rita, you’re too kind!

Y’know, our horses are a bit bored after travelling all the way here on the barge; there’s not really very much for them to do. I thought maybe if we could give them some sugar lumps it might improve their mood! The security guard here in Fort Pinta is an old friend of ours, perhaps you could ask him if he has a few sugar lumps spare for us? 

Thanks Rita, come back when you’ve got the sugar lumps and you’ll see that the horses will be in a much better mood!

Objectives: Ask the security guard at Fort Pinta for some sugar lumps.

Ride up to the entrance to the disco and speak with Security there.

WHAT?!

Sugar?! Sugar?!

Here, as Allied soldiers tumble down the cliffs like lemmings, you’re asking for sugar?

Caution: Fall Hazard!

security

TEN-HUT!

Sugar… I hardly think you’d find any sugar here. In the middle of a terrible natural catastrophe we don’t exactly have the time for such civil frivolities! Right this second we’re in the midst of a disaster of apocalyptic proportions that frankly demands the total engagement and dedication of everybody involved!

What do you mean why am I so upset?! UPSET?!

Hmm? Calm down? Me?

Err…

Yes, well, yesterday as I was patrolling the base and inspecting the fortifications to ensure infiltrators couldn’t get in and that no tourists got lost in the fort, I almost walked right off the edge of the cliff! I was peering through my binoculars to check for enemies as I patrolled and didn’t exactly notice that I was so close to the edge. I was an inch from toppling right over into the sea, and it was only my superior commando training that saved me! What kind of training? Umm…

Yes! I was actually the Jorvik junior tap champion when I was younger… That’s actually really very much like commando training if you don’t mind!

ANYWAY! Now I’ve made these marvelous hazard signs that must be erected so that the same thing doesn’t happen to some standard civilian. Private Rita! ATTENTION! You’re hereby ordered to install these signs in appropriate locations along the fortifications. 

MOVE OUT! FORWAAARD MARCH!

Objectives: Put up the hazard signs around Fort Pinta and come back to talk to the security guard.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Ride around the fort and place the signs in the indicated locations, then return to Security when you are finished.

security

ATENNN-SHUN!

Are all the hazard signs in place?

Report Back to Base

security

TEN-HUT! Don’t just stand here loitering, Private Rita. Here’s your sugar just as we agreed. Report back t General Ferdinand immediately. Between you and me, I’ll be recommending you for a medal for your heroic contribution here today.

Hmm…

MOVE OUT! FORWAAAARD MARCH!

Objectives: Ride to Ferdinand with the sugar lumps.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Return to Ferdinand with the sugar cubes.

ferdinand

Ooh, I see you’ve got sugar lumps with you! Now our horses are going to cheer right up, I’m sure.

Horses on the Loose

ferdinand

Oh no Rita, not again! All the horses have gotten loose!

Dear, oh dear, when they got the sugar lumps they cheered right up… Maybe they got a bit too cheerful. After being stuck on the barge for so long, they all went bananas when they got the sugar and just ran away. 

Sure, they needed some activity but they can’t just bolt like that. This happens every time we come to Fort Pinta. I reckon they were just bluffing when they looked so down in the mouth earlier; they knew they’d get sugar from me and then they ran away. I could swear they’ve gone and hidden themselves in the fort, just as they always do.

Can you look for them Rita? If you find them, they’ll come back here afterwards. Sometimes it drives me crazy when they’re this naughty, but I suppose it would get awfully dull without a little drama, don’t you think? 

Good luck Rita, and don’t forget to have a really good look, they’re surprisingly good at hiding themselves, these nutty nags!

Objectives: Find all the horses that have hidden themselves in Fort Pinta.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Find all of the horses hiding in the fort. There are several places they could be, though it is different for each player. Some of the locations include: inside the disco (you will have to dismount to approach this horse), up on top of the fort, near the stable, near the fort statue, near the hairdresser, on the pony barge. Their locations will be indicated on your map, so they should not be too hard to find.

Simply approach the horse to ‘find’ it. When all of the horses have been found,  return to Ferdinand.

ferdinand

Haha, you did good Rita. All the horses have returned. We won’t be falling for their monkey business again next time we come here, let me tell you!

Rent for the Horse Market in Fort Pinta

eddie

Hi Rita, do you think you can help me with an errand? I haven’t got time to leave the market right now, but I need to pay the rent. You’re someone I trust, so I can rely on you to deliver this envelope of Jorvik Shillings? It needs to get to James in Fort Pinta, which shouldn’t take long for an expert rider like you.

You’d do that for me? Thanks Rita!

Objectives: Give the envelope of Jorvik Shillings to James in Fort Pinta.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Ride up to James and deliver the envelope for Eddie.

james

Hey there Rita. You’re here with the rent from Ferdinand and Eddie? Great!

A Big Thank You From Ferdinand and Eddie

ferdinand

Dearest Rita, you’ve really been a huge help for us here in Fort Pinta. If you hadn’t helped us to find all the horses, we’d have been forced to search for the all night long.

Eddie and I had a little chat earlier on, and we both decided that we wanted to give you a gift, you know, to say thanks for all you’ve done for us. Eddie has been fixing it up and I think she’s finished now. You go talk to her and you’ll get a really lovely present from us, and nope, I’m saying nothing about what it is. That would only spoil the surprise! So long, dearest Rita, see you soon.

Objectives: Talk to Eddie at the horse market.

Rewards: 150 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP, Smart Polo Shirt

Reputation: 500 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Go and speak to Eddie.

eddie

Hi Rita! Now you get to see what I’ve fund for you in our caravan. It’s so lovely, it was embroidered by an old friend of ours and I wore it a lot when I was younger. It doesn’t really suit my beautiful body these days, hehe! But here, it’ll look perfect on you. Here you go! See you soon Rita.
