The Snow Just Won’t Melt

elizabeth_sunbeam

Now it really has been a while… Does the snow up on the mountain pass never melt? There’s been a few unseasonably warm days lately so maybe it’s time to get up there and have a proper check. I know you’re probably fed up watching snow melt, but I’m really, really keen to get into the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur now!

It’s been a hundred years since people were last there, and a little bit of snow shouldn’t be allowed to stop us!

Objectives: Ride to the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur and see if the mountain pass is still blocked with ice and snow.

Rewards: 19 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 15 with Valedale

Ride up the mountain pass near Elizabeth’s house to the top to see if the snow has finally melted. Return to Elizabeth when you have inspected the mountain pass.

elizabeth_sunbeam

Really?! What wonderful news! I had a feeling it’d be fine.. The days have been so sunny and warm lately, I just knew it would have an effect on the mountainside.

______________

Come On Now! Away You Go!

elizabeth_sunbeam

How exciting! Now the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur is open and waiting for us to explore! I really want to get my hands on some of the stuff that’s been locked up in that valley for years. It’s such a shame that the mountain pass has been so heavily blocked, otherwise we could have gone there ages ago…

Ah well! Now what are we waiting for?! Ride out and look for a safe way to get through to the valley, then report back to me.

Come on now! Away you go, my friend!

Here’s a little tip: the valley is very isolated, and it might be tough to get out once you get in. Make sure you have some extra space in your rucksack because there’s not going to be any shops or stables in there.

Objectives: Ride on in to the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur!

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 85 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Ride up the mountain pass and enter the valley through the gap in the snow.

self

A frozen valley thick with freeing mist spreads out beneath the old elevator tower.

Welcome to the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur!

Quest completed

______________

The Only Way is Down…

self

No elevator.But it really looks as though it’s possible to get down along the mountainside here…

The ice platforms along the mountainside don’t look as though they’d hold up very long if you step on them. I need to get down without stopping.

Then I won’t be able to come back up the same way. This feels so risky, but you gotta do what you gotta do in the name of adventure! I hope I can find another way up later until then, I’m alone and have nobody to help me…

Objectives: Try to get down the mountainside again without slipping, falling, or letting the ice platforms collapse beneath you!

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

This quest runs as a race to the bottom of the cliff. The platforms will collapse if you do not maintain at least the first gallop to get across them. You do not need to jump across to the platforms, as long as you are moving fast enough. Follow the arrows to find your way down the cliff. I found it fairly straightforward, and you will have ample enough time to complete even if you do fall a few times.

self

This is the lower part of the elevator tower. The elevator seems as unusable from down here as it is from up there.

Quest completed

______________

Inspect the Elevator Motor

self

The motor is right here in the middle of the elevator structure’s lower section. I can check it out and see if it’s possible to fix it. If I can fix the elevator, then I’ve got a sure way back to Valedale and Elizabeth can come with me into the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur without risking death on that dangerous mountainside.

Objectives: Examine the elevator’s motor.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Ride up the ramp to inspect the elevator motor.

self

The motor truly has seen better days. It’s broken, rusty, and out of fuel. Even if it was in better condition, it seems as though it needs to be started using some device or other which must be somewhere nearby.

Quest completed

______________

Check the Control Room

self

That building over there must be some kind of control room. I need to check it out!

Objectives: Examine the little building by the elevator.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Ride over to the little building and see if you can get inside.

self

This door is padlocked and I can’t get in.

Quest completed

______________

Find the Key

self

I wonder if there is a key hidden around here somewhere? Around the door frame or under a window, maybe? Maybe the old classic upturned flowerpot?

It’s worth a look… I really want to get into this little building…

Objectives: Look for any keys that might be lying around nearby.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Search the indicated areas nearby until you find the key, then return to the door and use the key from your inventory.

self

Yes! They key fits the lock! The door’s open now!

Quest completed

______________

Elevator Control Room…

self

This is a control room for the elevator! That control panel looks so old! Looks to be built using the most groundbreaking engineering from the late 19th century.

Definitely needs a closer look to see how messed up the control panel is.

Objectives: Examine the control panel.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Well, let’s see…

self

The control panel looks pretty intact, even though it’s not been used for a hundred years! The building seems to have protected all the delicate machinery from the wind and weather.

Quest completed

______________

Hidden Beneath the Snow…

self

If I can find things around here that could be used a spare parts, I think I can actually fix this motor. If I can find usable fuel, then I can get the elevator started. I really feel like I need to find a safe way to travel between Valedale and this amazingly exciting Valley! Only then can Elizabeth come here with me.

While I was looking for the key, I noticed a few odds and ends poking up through the snow… There could be things lying all over the place that I could use as spare parts.

I can’t be sure, but I also think I might have seen a diesel canister here somewhere in the snow…

Objectives: Find spare parts for the motor.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Ride around the surrounding area and dig up what you can find that you think will aid in fixing the elevator motor.

self

Seems to be a lot of rag-tag bunch of spare parts. Mostly junk… I guess some of it could be used for a basic repair, though.

Quest completed

______________

Motoring Through a Repair

self

I’m totally sure the motor can be fixed, even with these random bits of rubbish. I saw a toolbox in the control room someplace. I’ll need that when I’m doing my repairs!

Objectives: Fix the motor with the spare parts.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Go into the control room to pick up the tool box on the floor. Then dismount your horse near the elevator motor to begin fixing it. Continue to use the tool box on the motor until the repair is complete.

self

So! Done! The motor is fixed I think… For now, at least.

Quest completed

______________

Antique Diesel

self

This tank is filled with hundred-year-old diesel. There’s got to be a can or container of some kind around here somewhere under the snow that I can fill with diesel. That way I can fill up the fuel tank and get the motor going.

Objectives: Find a container in the snow. Fill it with diesel and fill up the elevator motor’s fuel tank.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Search the area for a container. When you have found one, return to the diesel tank to fill up the container. Then take the container and pour it into the giant funnel on the side of the elevator platform.

self

The fuel tank is now filled with loads of really old diesel.

Quest completed

______________

Is the Elevator Starting?

self

Now to try starting the elevator using the control panel in the control room…

Objectives: Try starting the elevator using the control panel in the control room.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Go into the control room and try to start the motor. Keep trying to start it until you succeed.

self

Yay! It works! For how long though, that’s the question… Probably not entirely without risk to ride in that rickety old elevator…

Quest completed

______________

First Ride in a Century…

self

I need to give the elevator a test run! Come on, Icerunner, let’s go! We can’t stand around here all day!

Objectives: Give the rickety old elevator a test run…

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 10 with Valedale

Dismount your horse near the elevator, then click on the elevator gate to ride. Both sides can take you either up or down, so you do not have to wait for a specific car to take you. Once at the top (or bottom, whichever direction you are going), you can mount your horse again.

self

This ride in the elevator didn’t exactly feel safe, but we made it in one piece! We were lucky, huh Icerunner? We should stay hopeful that it lasts long enough to give us a few more lifts up and down!

Now, thank goodness, we can move pretty freely between Valedale and the Valley! Woop woop!

Quest completed

______________

The Old Path Reopens!

self

Now everyone can get to the ancient valley, unless they’re afraid of elevators of course…

Time to tell Elizabeth the good news that the elevator is working!

Icerunner, let’s get out of here before your hooves freeze fast to the ground!

Objectives: Report back to Elizabeth.

Rewards: 9 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 15 with Keepers of Aideen

Return to Valedale and tell Elizabeth of your findings.

elizabeth_sunbeam

Hello Rita! Hello Icerunner! Is the lift back in business? I thought I could hear something going on up by the mountainside!

You really think that old thing is safe to travel in?

Treasures Amongst the Snow and Ice

elizabeth_sunbeam

I have a few things to prepare before I can leave. Probably best that we wait until tomorrow…

Mmm… We can’t wait that long, can we?

There are things in that valley that I really, really want… I’ll get everything together right away and get into the valley using the elevator. While I do that, you can ask Avalon if there’s anything in particular he wants us to bring back from the valley, okay?

Okay! Talk to Avalon here in the village, and we’ll meet beneath the elevator!

Objectives: Ask Avalon if he wants anything from the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur.

Rewards: 22 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 20 with Keepers of Aideen

Ride over to Avalon’s house across the river, and ask him if there is anything special he would like from the valley.

faceless_druid

Hello Rita! So, the frozen old valley is open again? Hmm… Interesting… Very interesting… Elizabeth wonders if I want something brought back?

Very interesting…

Quest completed

______________

Meet Elizabeth in the Winter Mist

faceless_druid

I need icenthistles! They grew in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur long, long ago, and should still be growing there today. It’s a fantastic plant with all kinds of properties that don’t exist in any other plant in the world!

A very interesting plant, if you ask me…

Off you go and meet Elizabeth, and let her know I want icenthistles!

Objectives: Meet Elizabeth in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur and let her know what Avalon wants.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 15 with Keepers of Aideen

Return to the valley and meet Elizabeth at the bottom of the elevator.

elizabeth_sunbeam

Icenthistles? I thought as much. A very interesting plant, you know…

But this place! Wow! It’s so cool, right?

Cold…

Almost a kind of unearthly cold, don’t you think? Do you feel it? I’ve never been this cold in my life. This insane cold actually has an explanation, but meteorological and historical lectures can wait for another time! Now we need to get to work before everyone hears about how the valley is accessible again; they’ll swarm here, trampling all over everything and plundering everything of worth…

Quest completed

______________

Gather Ice Crystals

elizabeth_sunbeam

There should be some kind of blue ice crystals in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur. See if you can find some! They’re incredibly rare and possess mystical powers!

They’re called kallstones. I really want to examine them much more closely. Like I said, they’re super rare, so there’s a chance you might need to look for a while.

Objectives: Find three kallstones for Elizabeth.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 10 with Keepers of Aideen

Search the area for kallstones. Return to Elizabeth when you have found enough of them.

elizabeth_sunbeam

Oh thank you, Rita! Beautiful examples you’ve found… Maybe they’re not quite so rare after all? Great!

Do you hear that? It’s humming a little bit… It’s full of huge amounts of energy! So, so exciting!

Quest completed

______________

Gathering Icenthistles

elizabeth_sunbeam

Go around and gather icenthistles for me and Avalon. They’re sure to be growing here and there, but hurry and pick them before other explorers come and swipe them, or stomp all over them! They’re so valuable!

Since both me and Avalon want some, it’s best to gather a proper bunch!

Pick a dozen.

Objectives: Pick a dozen icenthistles for Elizabeth (and Avalon).

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Overcoming Obstacles

elizabeth_sunbeam

Hmm.. We’re not going to wait around for that ice-blocking ice to melt… Nothing melts here. Let’s help the springtime arrive in a more…

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Keepers of Aideen

Oh, look! Perfect! Three little kallstones. That should do the trick.

Quest completed

______________

Fire and Ice!

elizabeth_sunbeam

Take that little pile of kallstones and place them on the ground by the ice blockage. Then we’ll back off a little and take shelter behind this log before we set fire to the kallstones.

You can have the honor of doing it if you like.

Here, take this rune staff… When you’re done backing up to take cover, use the staff and concentrate all your magical power to set fire to the little pile of kallstones.

Then, if my calculations are right, it should hopefully be a case of BANG! And the ice is gone!

Objectives: Set the pile of kallstones down by the ice blockage. Then take cover by the log and use the rune staff.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP, Winter Trenchcoat

Reputation: 10 with Keepers of Aideen

kaBOOM!!

elizabeth_sunbeam

Haha! Fantastic to just get things started with a little explosion! Hope the noise didn’t start any avalanches…

Anyway, now the road ahead is wide open for you! Carry on now and find out where it leads! Go freely to explore the whole Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur! I’m going to head back to Valedale and take a look through the treasures you gathered for us.

Good luck now! You’ll surely find a reason to come visit me again sometime soon… Then you can tell me all about your adventures in the valley!

Nic’s Story

new_and_improved_nic

Brr… My main goal with the balloon expedition was to be able to find a secret p-p-place I’ve been looking for my whole life, and I started to get indications that the place in question was in or around the Valley of the Hidden D-D-Dinosaur…

The b-ba-ba-balloon journey unfortunately ended in chaos though. I flew straight over the north of the mountain with the plan to get into the valley from the southwest, but the winds took me straight off course and this thick, white mist made it impossible to see anything.Β 

In any case, I thought that through the gaps in the clouds, I could see a glimpse of a warm and magical place on the ground. I felt the warmth in my heart and tried to steer the balloon towards it but the combination of my sudden change in steering, and the cold, hard winds meant that I soon lost control and went heading straight back down to earth.Β 

In a p-p-panic, I jettisoned my sandbags and dumped all my equipment over the side of the balloon, but it was no use. The balloon smashed right down into the snow and suddenly everything was white.

Brr…!!

Objectives: Listen to Nic.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 65 with The Stoneground Expedition

Quite the tale!

new_and_improved_nic

When I came around, I realized I was totally alone and abandoned in a totally unknown spot here in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur. Lost, I haven’t been able to leave the crash site because it’s simply too dangerous to go out exploring on foot, without any equipment.

You can’t even imagine how t-t-tired, hungry, c-c-co-cold, and exhausted I am.

Quest completed

______________

The Adventurer’s Lost Equipment

new_and_improved_nic

To try and get the balloon to stop losing height and float again, I had to throw a load of heavy equipment overboard. It’s possibly lying around here somewhere, possibly covered in the snow that never stops falling here. C-c-can you and your lovely strong horse please help me to find my lost equipment? If you could have a look around and bring it back to me, that would be amazing. I’m far too exhausted to be able to carry anything, and my limbs are so stiff and frozen that I can barely move…

Objectives: Search around the area for Nic’s equipment.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 35 with The Stoneground Expedition

Sandbag Stockpile

Assemble Nic’s Adventure Tent

new_and_improved_nic

Amongst all my adventure kit you found, there should be a tent that I’ve had with me on loads of different expeditions and adventures! Would you please be able to put it up so that I’ve got a safe place to sleep and take shelter? I’ve been sleeping here amongst these fir branches until now, and believe me… It’s been really very cold.

I’m far too f-f-fr-frozen to be able to put the tent up myself. Could you help me? It’s a p-p-pretty c-c-complic-c-cated tent, b-b-but I think you can ma-ma-m-manage.

Objectives: Construct Nic’s tent.

A Warming Lantern

new_and_improved_nic

It’s so cold, grey, and dark here. C-c-ca-can you help me build a little lantern out of snow so that I can shield this candle I have from the wind? That way it won’t blow out. Build it just here in front of me so that I can warm up my hands and g-g-get a little l-li-light.

My hands are shaking too much for me to be able to b-bu-build one myself. Brr…

Objectives: Build a little snow lantern so that the candle is protected from being blown out.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 30 with The Stoneground Expedition

______________

Firewood

new_and_improved_nic

Nah, it’s no good… Brr… I think we need to think bigger than just a little snow lantern. A proper campfire is what we need! Can you run out and gather some firewood from the forest?

Campfire Cookery

new_and_improved_nic

Here now, there’s something just as important as sleep, and that’s food! I’m super hungry, and wouldn’t mind a little help with building a stand over the campfire so that I can hang up this cauldron and let the fire warm up the food from underneath! Can you have a look around for three long, sturdy sticks, then set them together to form a stand over the campfire?

Then hang up this adventure cauldron, hehe!

Objectives: Find three long sticks and construct a stand over the campfire. Then hang up the cauldron.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

______________

Are You Sitting Comfortably?

new_and_improved_nic

After heat, food, and sleep, I suppose it’s next most important to be able to sit and relax properly. Maybe you could help me build a couple of proper benches here by the campfire? Here, look! A few planks here that look ideal for the job! Grab them and set them on top of the bits of wood already surrounding the fire and then we’ll have a really love pair of benches!

I’ve had a plan in my head for ages to get these benches sorted out, but just haven’t got so far with actually building them. Lucky you’re here to help me!

Objectives: Use the planks to build two benches by the campfire.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 15 with The Stoneground Expedition

There are two benches to set up, with three planks each. Set the planks on both benches, then speak to Nic again.

File a Report to A.A.E.

new_and_improved_nic

At last I can think clearly again! I need to contact A.A.E. and tell them what’s happened. I work for them after all, and they’ve not heard from me since I vanished with the balloon! They must think I’ve disappeared forever.

I have to write a letter. My fingers are still frozen, so can I ask for your help in writing a situation report for them? Right there on the bench should be a nice, even surface for letter writing.

Objectives: help Nic write a situation report for A.A.E.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Dismount your horse and use the pen from your inventory to write the reports. Speak to Nic again when you are finished.

Derek Explains the Mail System

derek

Woah, you’re out adventuring in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur?! That’s so cool!! Nic Stoneground is asking for a mailbox at his camp there?

Hmm, you’ve got to have a high enough reputation for us to be able install a mailbox, but Nic’s a legend so of course we can get something sorted out for him. The chiefs at Post Office HQ now want us to split all the mail into incoming and outgoing when we install new mailboxes. Dunno what that’s all about, it just sounds like a lot of fuss to me. Anyway, this means that you’ll need two mailboxes to put up at the camp. Understood?

Objectives: Listen to Derek as he tells you all about the Post Office’s new routines.

Setting Up Mailboxes

new_and_improved_nic

Now we need to set up the mailboxes. Don’t put them up too close to the tent, otherwise I’ll wake up every time the mailman comes. Over there by that tree seems like a good spot, don’t you think? Check if it works to put them over there. See? By that tree there, yep…

Objectives: Set up both mailboxes in the spots Nic suggested.
