Speak to the Council Man to see if he has been able to find the money for a horse transport.

Perfectly Perfect Paperwork

council_man

Hello there! Splendid news!

I’ve managed to find some money for the horse trailer. It wasn’t easy, but in the end I managed to scrape exactly the right amount together to buy the trailer. Lovely news, eh?

A vehicle to pull the trailer? What would you be wanting with that?

Oh, the trailer doesn’t work without a vehicle to pull it. Sounds logical.

Unfortunately, the budget is too tight to find any more money for anything else now. Is there not anyone else you can ask? No?

Well, the trailer is waiting by the racetrack, in any case, perhaps you’ll come up with something. 

Hold on! I think I might have an idea!

The last time I was up at North Link, I met a friendly young intern who said he knew you. Maybe you can talk to him? He seemed to have at least half a brain, unlike some of the other Neanderthals up there.

Talk to the intern. That’s my suggestion! See you around!

Objectives: Ride and ask the intern by North Link if he can help you.

Ride up to North Link and speak with the G.E.D. Trainee, who you had last helped cement up the whole in the Winery basement. He will be standing in front of the equipment at the entrance to the construction site.

Hey Rita! Long time no see!

We Need a Diversion!

ged_trainee

You need a vehicle that can tow a horse trailer? You wonder if I can help you?

Of course I can! We’re friends, and compared with all you’ve done for me, this would be a drop in the ocean. I can borrow a bulldozer from the construction site that you can use… I bet nobody will even notice it’s gone. Haha! This’ll be so much fun!

Hmm… The only problem is trying to drive the bulldozer off without anyone noticing. The laborers here don’t seem to care much about anything but if the intern suddenly drove off in a bulldozer, I think they might notice.

See that old man up on the cliff? Mr Bucket… Maybe he can help us? What do you think?

You’ll ride up and talk to him? Awesome, I’ll be here in the meantime.

Objectives: Talk to Mr Bucket up on the clifftop.

Ask Mr Bucket if he could help conjure up a distraction.

mr_bucket

Mm, hello to you. How are the plans progressing for the acquisition of an alternative means of transport to North Link?

A Delivery of Distractions

mr_bucket

A distraction? Ha! I have the perfect distraction right here.

Yours truly is in fact one of Jorvik’s foremost experts in Bureaucratic Business English, both in the areas of theoretical grammar and circular logic. Right now, I’m putting the finishing touches to the final version of my epic masterpiece “North Link’s Infrastructural Capacity Displacement from a Perspective of Structural Capacity.” It’s taking forever to finish because even I fall asleep after just five minutes of reading it.

If you give this copy to the construction workers below and you’ll have all the time in the world to do whatever you want.

Objectives: Give Mr Bucket’s epic masterpiece: “North Link’s Infrastructural Capacity Displacement from a Perspective of Structural Capacity” to the construction workers by North Link.

Ride into the construction site and give the essay to the Crew Lead. He can be found standing in front of the tunnel.

ged_worker

Hello. Can’t you see we’re working here?

Hmm? Read what? Do I have to? Haven’t exactly got the time for this kind of drivel.

A Successful Distraction

ged_worker

What? North Links Infrastructural Capacity Displacement from a Perspective of Structural Capacity? What on earth are you talking about? Sounds important though. Best give it a quick read.

Hmm… “North Link’s Infrastructural Capacity Displacement from a Perspective of Structural Capacity,” let’s have a look…

Reading, reading, reading…

Oh my days! I don’t understand a single thing… Feels like I should keep reading though…

I feel so very small. And stupid. And I need to start from the beginning…

(The project leader seems to be totally absorbed by the reading, this was exactly the distraction you were looking for! Now the intern can definitely drive off with the bulldozer without anybody noticing. Go back to the intern and tell him!)

Objectives: Return to the intern and let hi know the distraction worked.

Return to the Trainee and tell him about your distraction.

ged_trainee

How did it go? They’re completely preoccupied with Mr Bucket’s essay? Fantastic!

Transport Transport for the Transport

Excellent! This is going really smoothly! Wait here, and I’ll go get the bulldozer and drive it down to the Racetrack.

Wait for the Trainee to deliver the bulldozer, then speak to him when he returns.

ged_trainee

So! Now the bulldozer is in place. I put everything together whilst I was down there, so now the horse trailer works perfectly!

A Bucketful of Good News

ged_trainee

So there that was. Done. Was great to see you again, Rita! Run by and say hi sometime, okay? Have a go and see if the horse trailer is working… Oh… But stop by Mr Bucket first, seems like he wants something. I can see him waving from here.

Off you go! See you again soon!

Objectives: Ride up to the clifftop above North Link and talk to Mr Bucket.

Tell Mr Bucket that the project is completed.

mr_bucket

Ah, fantastic work, Rita. You’ve contributed to the completion of our project, both within the allotted time frame and without exceeding budget by a single Jorvik Shilling. Truly remarkable work, I must say.

With this new transport option now available, one may travel to Silverglade Village on a daily basis. Imagine that. The opportunity to re-engage in the bureaucratic work of our dear Town Hall truly fills me with joy and happiness.

From the bottom of my hear, I want to express my sincere gratitude. 

Unfortunately, there was no space in the budget for this informal little project, but I can gladly give you one of my high-visibility vests. A proper hi-vis vest is something that should be part of every citizen’s wardrobe.

Until next time, Rita.
