Speak to Big Bonny — er, Herman — by her house in Silverglade, to see how you can help her fix the clock.

Tools for Repair

big_bonny

Hello Rita.

Now. I’ve been up into the clock tower and taken a little look at the machinery. It’s possible to fix it, in fact for a champion such as myself, nothing is impossible. But just because it’s possible doesn’t mean it’s easy. There’s just one tiny little snag…

When I fled Silverglade Village, I was so angry with myself that I threw all of my tools into the fountain. I forgot that I’d done that. I need them though, otherwise I can’t do anything about that broken clock!

I don’t dare to move an inch outside my door, imagine what would happen if someone recognized me?! You though, my petal, have freedom to roam about unchallenged; nobody suspects you of anything… Ride over to the fountain and collect my precious tools. Ride! Hurry!

Objectives: Find the Clockmaker’s tools in the Silverglade Village fountain.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 10 with Silverglade Village

Ride down to the fountain the the middle of the town square and fish out the tools. Return to Bonny when you have all of them.

big_bonny

Ooohh, Rita! My tools! My precious tools! Thank you so mu… But… They’re totally ruined! Oh my goldfish, why?! Why does this kind of baloney always happen to me?! MEEEE?!

WHYYY MEEEEEEEEE?!

WHHHHHYYYYYYYY… Cough… Cough…

(You thump Big Bonny on the back.)

Oiling Up the Mechanisms

big_bonny

Even if my tools were repaired, it still would count for nothing. We need oil to lubricate the mechanisms. Actually, quite a lot of oil since it’s stood still for all these years. Who would even have any oil around these parts anyway? Nobody. No chance. Nobody, say I!

What? Steve? Oh yeah, he’s probably got oil.

But even so, dear Rita! It’s still a road to nowhere! It’ll never work! It’s a pathway to defeat! A highway to fiasco!

You want to try anyway? Sigh. Go right ahead if you want to fribble away your time. Here’s an empty oil bottle. Go and talk to Steve if you like…

Objectives: Ask Steve for oil.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Ride out to Steve’s farm and ask him if he has any oil you can spare.

steve

Oil? Why, yes I do indeed have some black gold right here!

Topping Up the Oil

steve

Y’know there’s oil in that there tank, right Rita?

Hmm? You think it’s diesel? Meh, it’s not that big a difference. One thing you should know about my diesel is that it’s particularly oily diesel, so it’ll work just as well. Trust me! Believe in Steve!

All you need to do is take your bottle and fill it on up. I’m sure you can do that yourself.

Objectives: Fill up the oil from the tank at Steve’s farm.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 5 with Silverglade Village

Ride over to the large green tank on the outside of the stable building, behind where the for sale Friesians are located. Use the oil can from your inventory, then speak to Steve when you have filled it up.

steve

So there you go! Now you’ve got a full bottle of oil. Or diesel. Or, well, yeah. Diesel oil…

Back to the Clockmaker with the Diesel Oil

Check that crisis off our list!

Pfff…

Hmm? You’ve filled the bottle with oil? Ooh! Excellent! Maybe there’s a chance the winds of luck could change after all!

Tools Need to Be Repaired

big_bonny

Ugh, what a disaster… Just as I thought I was going to be able to return to my regular old life, the wicked fingers of chance crush my dreams like crumbly little cookies. How can life be so hideous and unkind?! My tools are destroyed!

If they can be repaired? Never. Impossible. How would that even work?! It’s over now, Rita. It’s all over. Just let me slither back into that sack and you can take me back to the silo.

Sniffle…

Hmm? You want to give a go at repairing the tools?

That’ll only work when pigs fly, my treasure. Useless idea.

What’s that? You have friends who can help you? The blacksmith? Meh, he’s very good, but not even his wonderful, skilled hands could work the kind of magic we need here.

Meh. Nope. Things can’t get any worse than they are now, so it doesn’t matter whether you give it a try or not. You may as well, but don’t be surprised if it doesn’t work out…

Objectives: Go to the blacksmith with the Clockmaker’s tools.

Ride to Conrad in Moorland and ask him if he can fix the tools.

Greetings to you, Rita. Might I help you with something?

The Blacksmith’s Toughest Job

conrad_marsdeen

Repair the Clockmaker’s tools?

These little bundles of nothing aren’t really something I’d usually take a second look at, but because it’s you and you’re asking so nicely, I can make an exception. Anything for my friend Rita…

It’s not a simple project you’re asking me to work on. In fact, it’s probably the toughest thing you could ask a blacksmith to do, even a blacksmith as experienced as I.

In order for me to even begin work on this mighty undertaking, I’ll need your help. You need to find a special type of iron from the heart of Garnok, deep, deep, down in the volcano which sprayed death and destruction all over Jorvik. It’s a perilous journey, full of danger… You’ll be away from the safe embrace of Jorvik for quite some time. 

Worry not, little Rita, I’ll help you. In that box over there by the house, there’s a tent you can borrow for the journey. Fetch it and I can tell you more. 

Objectives: Fetch the tent and talk to the blacksmith again.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 10 with Silverglade

A tent: the most important of travel provisions.

conrad_marsdeen

Excellent, you’ve got the tent. Good. Now, listen carefully…

Your journey to the heart of Garnok is going to take at least a month, and during that time, you’re not going to be able to see any of your friends or your horses. Horses are forbidden where you’re going, so you’re going to have to leave Summerblaze behind as well. A whole month without your friends or horses. It’s a serious sacrifice but I’m happy I can rely on you to see it through.

So, Rita… Are you ready to start your journey?

Journey to the Heart of Garnok

conrad_marsdeen

Hahaha!

Heeheeheeeee!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I was just joking, Rita! Pulling your leg! Rattling your cage! What a completely world-class joke! I don’t just forge the best tools, I forge the best jokes as well! Pffahahahahahaha!!

Those tools were so easy to repair that I managed to fix the whole lot while you were rummaging around in that box over there.

Heeeeeeeeheeheehee!! What a totally outrageous joke I just released upon you. This joke is going to be talked about by my children… And my children’s children… And my children’s children’s children! In a hundred years, they’ll still be talking about the funniest joke in the history of all Jorvik!

Here are the tools, Rita. Give them to your friend the Clockmaker. 

Objectives: Ride back to Big Bonny with the newly-repaired tools.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 25 with Silverglade Village

Who knew stuffy old Conrad had a sense of humor? And a vain one at that…

Big Bonny will be happy to have her tools fixed.

big_bonny

Sigh. It all came to nothing, didn’t it? Just as I predicted, a total disaster. Another disappointment. Another tragic chapter in my heartbreaking story.

If I want to see the tools? Pff. Nah. What difference would it make?

What…? Wait…! They look like new! Have I been released from the claws of fate? Have the winds of my destiny finally changed?!

Master Clockmaker’s Apprentice

big_bonny

Now maybe there’s a chance for us after all Rita! Now the hour is upon us. We’re going to try to repair the clock!

It’s a very serious defect and if I wasn’t such a master clockmaker, I would probably have been forced to give up. But don’t be afraid, young Rita! I shall give you all the knowledge you need to repair it!

Why am I not doing it myself? Well, I’m sure you understand that it was a deeply troubling and emotional experience for me to come back to the scene of my own personal apocalypse, and I genuinely don’t believe I’ll ever be able to go there again. I was about to faint and fall down while I was up there! That could easily have been the end for me… Plummeting to an early grave.

I can’t go back. I won’t go back. And I can’t go back. I’d like very much for you to help me with this, Rita. Not for my sake, but for the sake of the sweet, sweet villagers! Don’t leave them high and dry, forced to live every day in a meaningless, clockless life.

You’ll help me? Miraculously marvelous!

Now I’m going to tell you exactly what you need to do. The most important thing is that you carry out the steps in the right order. If you do it right, the clock will tick once more! If you do it wrong, then you just need to cross your fingers you’ve not flubbed and fumbled it too badly and come back to me so you can have another try.

Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1. Use the wrench on the wheel by the clock face.

Step 2. Pour oil into the big funnel.

Step 3. Use the clock winding key to wind up the spring.

Step 4. Pull the lever to start the clock.

Step 5. Cross your fingers!

Step 6. There are no more steps.

Good luck!

Objectives: Repair the clock like this:

Step 1. Use the wrench on the wheel by the clock face.

Step 2. Pour oil into the big funnel.

Step 3. Use the clock winding key to wind up the spring.

Step 4. Pull the lever to start the clock.

Step 5. Cross your fingers!

Step 6. There are no more steps.

Dismount your horse to enter the clock tower. If you forget the order of the steps, be sure to check your quest log to view the quest dialogue again. If you are not sure which item to use, click on the sparkles to tell you what to use.

The wheel for the wrench is at the middle of the tower, up two stairs from the entrance.

The funnel is at the very top of the tower, up three stairs from the wheel.

The spring is also at the middle of the tower, down two stairs from the funnel.

The lever is on the same level as the funnel, up two stairs from the spring.

When you and fixed the clock, return to Big Bonny.

big_bonny

You’ve repaired the clock!

Hooray!

I’ve repaired the clock!!

HOORAY FOR ME!!

I’m a hero! A solid gold hero!

I shan’t forget you, Rita. When I’m awarded a medal – a medal of amazingness – I’ll give you a special mention in my acceptance speech!

Give the Council Man the Fantastic News!

Now, not to be too much of a big brash smartypants, but I do rather believe that now I’ll get both the medal and probably some flowers from the Council Man. Maybe he’ll even organize a parade or festival in my honor! I’m pretty certain he’ll be doing that. I can see it now… “Carnival á la Big Bonny!” Ohhhh, today is a wonderful, marvelous, magnificent day, my little Rita. Come on, let’s go!

Objectives: Meet Big Bonny at the Council Man’s place in Silverglade Village.

Well, well, Big Bonny! Nice to see you again.

Listen, while you’re here, do you think you could have a look at that broken clock? Nice one.

Hmm? Oh, it’s fixed already. Neat.

Yep, well, excellent. Thanks for that. Now, you’ll have to excuse me, I’ve got lots to be getting on with. Bye.

An Inconsolable Clockmaker

big_bonny

So, nobody’s even noticed that I’ve been away for five years.

This is horrendous. 

I’m worthless. A little, meaningless insect. An ant. A louse. A tiny beetle.

I’m a pointless little cockroach!

Sniffle, sniffle…

Excuse me Rita, I have to return to the silo and live out the rest of my pointless cockroachy days in sorrow and loneliness…

Objectives. Talk to the Council Man again.

Tell the Council Man that Big Bonny is upset.

council_man

Hi Rita, can I help you with something?

Why does Big Bonny look so sad? What’s happened?

What? Cockroach? Oh, now I understand. So she’s lived in exile for years because she made a mistake that she thought would destroy the whole village? Now she’s repaired the broken clock and thought she’d be carried through the streets in celebration?

How should we go about fixing this Rita? Everyone has wristwatches and cellphones these days, there’s nobody who really needs the Town Hall clock, it’s mostly just nice to look at. Hmm… Well we have to try and get Big Bonny in a better word, don’t we Rita? Let me have another word with her.

An Unbelievably Unbelievable Job

council_man

Clockmaker Big Bonny? Please do excuse my earlier performance.

You see, without the Town Hall clock to wake me every morning, I’ve slept so badly recently that I’ve basically turned into a zombie. I think that’s why my reaction earlier was so, umm… Casual. Now the news has had a chance to sink into my head. Not as sharp as I used to be, you see.

What you have done is totally wonderful!

Just think, when you left town we were so completely furious and thoroughly disappointed in you, and we just couldn’t understand how you could have left us with a broken clock. But after some time, we began to understand what a terribly difficult job you had, especially after each and everyone of us tried to get up there and fix the clock, each one of us failing horribly! Now you’re back, and in less than a day you’ve got  everything fixed. You’re a true hero!

As a thank you for your efforts, I hereby declare you Silverglade Clockmaker of the highest order!

Clockmaker Big Bonny, thank you again! Please never leave the village again! We couldn’t survive without you!

Objectives: Talk to Big Bonny.

Big Bonny finally gets the recognition she expected!

big_bonny

Oh, Rita I absolutely knew it! Not to be big-headed, but like he said: without me, the village would never survive.

That’s decided: I’ll never leave the village again. Never ever!

Thank you for all your help Rita!

Here’s a lovely little thing for you as a token of my gratitude. Now, I have to get myself home again, because as I’m sure you understand, there’s quite a lot of cleaning to do after five years in exile! Come and visit me should you ever find the time. Goodbye!
