Return to Linda in library at the Winery and see if she has found any useful information.

The Sleeping Widow

linda

Yawn… I’ve been looking all night and I think I’ve found an old note from the mid-18th century.

Listen to this:

Objectives: Listen to what Linda has to say about the Sleeping Widow.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 10 with Keepers of Aideen

And so Linda recounts her findings.

linda

The legend of the Sleeping Widow goes back far in time. When the light of Aideen spread over Jorvik and life was brought to the island, a handful of Life Wardens were created, whose task it was to guard the growing life, to shield it, and to give warning if the flora and fauna of the island were ever threatened.

quest-primeval_tree

These Life Wardens were brought into existence in the form of trees, who would forever live on Jorvik. The humans discovered these trees, respected them, and let them live. The humans understood the trees were special, ancient, and that they served a higher purpose. The humans came to call them Primeval Trees.

The Primeval Trees had different looks and abilities and were much stronger and more magnificent in the olden days; their glory days. Today most of the trees slumber. They sleep. Tired and haggard. Lessened in power not least by the exploitation of Jorvik’s natural resources.

It is said that the roots of the Primeval Trees penetrate all of Jorvik, and that the roots are linked together in an enormous network through which they can communicate.

Awesome, huh? Like an ancient internet! Kinda…

linda

You want to hear a little more, right?

It’s a fantastic story which I just have to share with you, and it’s important that you understand.

quest-scarecrow_hill_tree

You and I know of one of these Primeval Trees: the one on top of Scarecrow Hill. As the legend of the Golden Apple foretold, the witches have actually destroyed several Primeval Trees, but they only went for the trees that produce the golden apples, which the wicked witches shun. Other Primeval Trees were left alone.

According to my writings, some kindhearted witches have actually made alliances with the Primeval Trees to help strengthen their magical powers.

At least half a dozen Primeval Trees are known to exist today, mentioned in various records. There could be a lot more. In one place, one of the trees goes by the name of the Sleeping Widow.

To understand this, we need to go far back in history, but I’ll be brief.

quest-forgotten_fields_trees

Once upon a time, the Forgotten Fields was a dense, enormous forest. At least as magnificent as Greendale. The forest was protected by two Primeval Trees, which constituted a happy couple. Everything was great, they were happy together and to the forest flourished – until the earl built Jarlaheim.

When Jarlaheim was built, a great part of the forest was cut down, and the growing population in the area took down more of the forest to make both firewood and more building materials. A stable was also needed for the earl’s cavalry. Jorvik Stables was built, which later housed hundreds of horses.

As more and more of the forest was destroyed, the landscape opened up and made room for necessary grazing grounds where all the earl’s horses could graze and run around during the day. 

quest-primeval_stump

In the blind eagerness of mankind, which often arises in their simple minds during times of great expanse, the foresters unfortunately cut down one of the two Primeval Trees in the area. It was a grievous mistake but the damage was already done, and it was irreversible. The surviving Primeval Tree became lonely, and it grieved over the loss of its life companion.

She lost her will to live. Through her grief, and through mankind’s eager destruction and the grazing and stomping of the earl’s horses, the forest eventually died.

During the centuries that have passed since the Primeval Tree became lonely, her wailing has sometimes been heard on the wind. A wail much like a persistent howl, which chases around with the gusts across the windswept hills. 

And so there stood one lonely Primeval Tree, and the Forgotten Fields.

The area got its current name – the Forgotten Fields – after the earl’s cavalry and all the horses were no longer needed in Jorvik Stables.

The lost forest and the grazing grounds were later forgotten, since the area no longer served any purpose for the humans.

So much grief, for such a short chapter in history.

They say that the wailing of the Primeval Tree can no longer be heard. It’s not because she has stopped grieving, but rather that she has fallen asleep of exhaustion, resignation, and sorrow. She’s on death’s door, if she isn’t dead already. But we hope she isn’t, of course.

With this knowledge is mind, it’s an easy conclusion to draw that the old tree in the southwest corner of the Forgotten Fields actually is identical to this “Sleeping Widow.” 

How everything is connected to Lisa’s current critical location in Pandoria I can’t quite figure out. But if she says the tree must be woken, I guess we’ll wake it.

I myself, would have tried to make my way to Pandoria and tried to save her there, but it’s extremely risky, not to mention impossible to return from there after…

But how do you wake a magical, slumbering Primeval Tree?

linda

Moving tale. Poor Primeval Trees…

______________

Awakening Help

linda

I think you should talk to Elizabeth directly. It seems obvious that this Primeval Tree, the Sleeping Widow, can’t just be woken up by a regular alarm clock. If anyone has any idea of what kind of magic would be required to awake a slumbering Primeval Tree, it must be Elizabeth.

And Rita, I have a certain feeling you’ll get to use your fragment of Aideen’s Light. If you’re not already carrying it in your bag, you should stop by the supply in your stable and bring it with you to Elizabeth. That would save you a lot of time.

Good luck!

Objectives: Ask Elizabeth’s advice. Bring your fragment of Aideen’s Light. You’ll find it in your bag or in the supply of your stable.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 50 XP

Reputation: 10 with Keepers of Aideen

The Aideen’s Light item is unable to be deleted, so if it is not in your inventory, you will find it in your closet in your home stable. You do not need it to complete this quest but you will need it for the following quests.

Ride or transport to Valedale and speak to Elizabeth near her house.

 elizabeth_sunbeam

What a tale. What turn of events! We must indeed awake the Sleeping Widow to see if she can rescue Lisa. If Lisa says it is so, then it must be the way to rescue her from Pandoria. If it doesn’t work, we’ll try to find another way.

Hmm… Maybe the roots of this Primeval Tree reach farther than we could ever expect.

Anyway. I know of two things that can shake that ancient Primeval Tree enough to give it the energy it needs to wake up. The tree needs light, strength, and water. You must do three things.

One. Fill a bottle of Aideen’s Tears. You know, the dew from Aideen’s flowers that grow around here. 

Two. Energize the fragment of Aideen’s Light by the rune stones up here, in the same way you did last time. You need to have the fragment with you.

If you don’t have it in your bag, you’ll find it in the supply in your stable.

You can’t have rid yourself of it, so it has to be somewhere, I promise you that.

The third thing you need to do is to illuminate the tree with the energized fragment, and water it with Aideen’s Tears, and these two tasks needs to be performed at night. During the night the magic is undisturbed by the bustle of daytime, and the effect of Aideen’s power is so much stronger.

______________

Energize the Fragment of Aideen’s Light

elizabeth_sunbeam

Take the rune staff and ride up to the rune stones behind the house here, and energize your fragment of Aideen’s Light. This time, do it like this: First, use the rune staff on the rune stone of the sun, and then place the fragment onto the rune stone to energize the shard with the light of Aideen.

If you can’t find the fragment in your bag, you’re guaranteed to have it in the supply of your home stable. You know, a white, shining stone… I know you can’t have lost it.

Objectives: Use the rune staff on the rune stone of the sun, and energize the fragment with power by placing it on the rune stone.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 10 with Keepers of Aideen

Again, you’ll need the fragment item to complete this quest. It cannot be deleted so it is either in your personal inventory or in your stable inventory.

Go up the hill behind Elizabeth’s house to the open area with the rune stones. Dismount your horse and approach the one with the sun symbol on it. First use the rune staff that was placed in your inventory, to activate the stone. Then use the fragment on the stone to energize it.

When you have energized the fragment, return to Elizabeth.

elizabeth_sunbeam

Magnificent! The fragment has been energized with great power!

So the Sleeping Widow is a Primeval Tree? Interesting. It’s not that far fetched an idea.

Well done, Rita! Not to mention Linda, too! Now that’s hope that whatever is binding Lisa and the Sleeping Widow’s fate together also saves Lisa.

We’ll have our answer tonight.

Nee-ei-igh! I’ll stay behind, ready to help Lisa when you wake the Primeval Tree. I’m sure to be able to keep the crack open until midnight at least.

Get on your way to the Primeval Tree on the Forgotten Fields, and wait until nightfall to perform the necessary rituals. Best of luck!

May the light of Aideen be with you.

Objectives: Ride to the Primeval Tree in the southeastern corner of the Forgotten Fields and await nightfall.

The location of the tree is marked on your minimap. It is in a small valley behind a large plateau near the water. Approach the tree to complete the quest.

tree_portrait

The Primeval Tree slumbers deeply. It’s surrounded by an aura of heavy grief, and an overwhelming weakness washes over you, as if the tree relentlessly weighs you down with its great sadness over the mistakes of mankind. Mistakes that made this tree lose its beloved life companion…

In this state of mind, it’s going to be hard staying awake until tonight’s big task…

Crackle… Creeeeeakk…

Crackle… Let’s wait and watch… Let me think and creak and crackle for a little while… It’s been a long time since my branches murmured and my mind crept into action.

Let’s creak and crackle here for a while.

I promised Lisa, and promises are made to be kept, even those made to humans… Hmm. But why should I keep a promise to the people who betrayed me?

But you are more than that. You’re not only humans. You’re the bringers of Aideen’s Light.

They got away, but they all learned a lesson. This time I only intended to scare them.

I think the danger has passed. For this time.

Approach Lisa to complete the quest.

lisa

Hi Rita! It’s so good to see a friendly face again! Whooo! Starshine told me that you and Summerblaze were on the way here, you’re a real hero!

You made the Sleeping Widow save me, and Starshine was able to help me out of the crack and away from that horrid Pandoria. No words can describe how grateful we are that you saved me from that place! It was quite the ordeal, I’ll tell you.

But enough about me. Are you okay? You’re not hurt?

Lisa’s Tale

I’m really grateful you saved me. I mean it. It wasn’t a pleasant experience being imprisoned in Pandoria, I can tell you that much (shiver). Those idiots I just scared off succeeded in ambushing Starshine and I when we were off guard.

This time the story had a happy ending, but this cannot happen again! We really need to be on our watch now, right Rita?

Recount the past events to Lisa.

lisa

Alright. I understand things have been happening on the island?

I haven’t paid much attention to any ongoing events myself, since I’ve more or less been stuck in Pandoria ever since I last stepped into Jorvik Stables. Of course, I could tell you lots of fun stories from my time as a touring rock star, but that’s hardly important right now. We can do that later. And between you and I, Rita, it’s not that cool and glamorous to be a rock star. I’ll have you know, it’s a lot of hard work and stressful tour schedules to keep. And fame isn’t everything.

It’s nice to be back here where my face isn’t that well recognized. At least not any more. The fans forget you quickly, haha! But my friends last forever. I hope you and I will become good friends.

Anyway. Enough about that.

You’re right, Rita. We must see the others and meet the druids. I was thinking the same. At least I’ll get an update on the state of things. But before all that I’ll need a change of clothes and a good rest. And something to eat. 

Let’s wait with the druids until tomorrow. Rest and recovery goes above all else at this time. I also owe a favor to the Sleeping Widow. But that’ll have to come later.

Hi again! And a big thank you to you, Rita. Together with Starshine, you managed to save Lisa! Finally Lisa’s back.

Brilliant!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

alex

Really, Rita! Great work!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

It’s good to be back and see you all! I’ve really missed you! At one point I thought I’d never see daylight again. But now I’m here again, with all my friends.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

fripp

The Soul Riders are almost at full strength, and soon we’ll have gathered all four partial copies of the Light Ceremony book. When we’re ready and the time has come, we’ll perform the Light Ceremony and be protected. For now though, the time isn’t right.

Lisa, you should know that Dark Core has their hands on the original Light Ceremony Book. Everything points to that they’ll attempt to conduct the ceremony backwards, which will catastrophic consequences.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

That doesn’t sound good at all! What will they gain by this? What is their goal?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

fripp

If they perform the ceremony backwards, the crack between our reality and Pandoria will widen. In the worst case, that which keeps our worlds separated will tear apart. What exactly happens next, we don’t really know. One guess is that both our worlds will cease to exist. Or at least cease existing in the form and shape we know today.

Dark Core thinks they’ll be able to control the enormous flow of Pandoric energy, and will likely use it in an attempt to seize control of the world. Maybe they know something we don’t, but the druids are convinced it cannot lead to anything good…

It will probably lead to the end of the world, so it needs to be stopped at all costs.

That was a brief summary of the current situation.

Lisa, could you tell us what happened to you? You were kidnapped and taken to Pandoria?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

As you all know, I was on a world tour with my rock band and I’d been away from Jorvik for a while. When I finally ended my tour and came back to Jorvik, those ill-witted Dark Riders succeeded in ambushing Starshine and me. Then they imprisoned me in the horrific world of Pandoria.

Starshine and I weren’t on our guard. That’s a mistake we’ll never repeat.

Later I was rescued, as you all know. Thank goodness. In Pandoria I got in touch with the Primeval Tree, the Sleeping Widow. It was blurred and unclear, but her roots seemed to penetrate even into the unknown world of Pandoria. The Primeval Tree slept in our world, but in the dreamscape of Pandoria she could reach out to me and communicate. 

She said she could help me out of Pandoria, but the only way to do so was to wake her up. As a gesture in return, I was to help her with something. I don’t know what yet, but I plan to find out.

My time in Pandoria is incoherent and blurred, but one other thing happened. I got a strong feeling Anne was there at the same time as me. It wasn’t just a weak sensation. I could really feel her presence and it was clear. Because of this, I’m convinced Anne is there, and we have to try to save her. 

Maybe the Primeval Tree can help us again, I don’t know…

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

fripp

Interesting news. Maybe Anne is in Pandoria. It would be great if we could locate her and save her as well. I would go so far as to say it’s completely necessary. In a worst case scenario, it would require a rescue operation in Pandoria, but that’d have to be our last resort.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

elizabeth_sunbeam

At full strength, we would be very powerful! We’d also need to be aware of the dangers of a trip to Pandoria. One does not simply walk into Pandoria.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

alex

I am not afraid! We have to save her no matter what the risk. We owe it to her. If we have the slightest lead, we have to follow it up.

We’re always there for each other one hundred percent!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

Yes, Alex. We’ll do that. No doubt about it. I don’t long to go back, but for Anne’s sake…

Hmm… Another matter. I wonder if we can lure Justin away from the grip of the Dark Riders? He an I went to the same school, I know him a little.

And Rita, you know him a bit too, right?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

elizabeth_sunbeam

If we can remove Justin from Dark Core and the Dark Riders, they’ll weaken even more. It’s true. At least Rita stopped Justin from turning his horse into a Dark Horse. That’s good.

Last time Rita visited the headquarters of Dark Core and saw Justin, he seemed quite determined to continue to work for the dark side.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

lisa

We’ll have to think of something to make him change his mind. Hmm…

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

fripp

If you could remove Justin from Dark Core, it would be a massive achievement. But for now we’ll focus on the Light Ceremony we’ll be performing when the time is right. We’ll also keep an eye on any movements the Dark Core makes. We also need to find the other copies of the book, and try to rescue Anne.

This meeting is adjourned for now. We’ll see each other again soon. Welcome back to reality, Lisa. And yet again, many thanks to you Rita, for your efforts for the Keepers of Aideen.

May the light of Aideen shine upon us, and scatter the darkness that surrounds us.

And listen, Lisa. Don’t forget to return the favor. The Primeval Trees have a tendency of primeval rage if they feel tricked, and the wrath of the Primeval Tree is the last thing we need just now.

See you!

When you return to reality, ride back down to Elizabeth and speak to her.

Look at that. Another druid meeting conducted.

Did we get wiser? Lisa’s been rescued thanks to you, and we have a lead on Anne… But other than that, we’re still going over the same ground. We need to collect the other two book copies so we can prepare ourselves to perform the ceremony when the time comes. 

Later we need to follow up on the information about Anne. But are we really ready to conduct a rescue operation in Pandoria? Isn’t that doomed to fail? Maybe there’s another way… Maybe the Sleeping Widow can help us again, but before that we probably have to return her favor.
