Five Bolts for Battery Volts!

self

You prepare to charge the kallstone battery. Capture five lightning bolts, no more, no less, just like Berzelius the Engineer said.

Objectives: Charge the battery with five lightning strikes.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with The Stoneground Expedition

As soon as you accept the quest, the lightning will begin striking the battery. Be sure to count the strikes, and make sure you count exactly five strikes before removing the battery. If you pick it up before five strikes have hit, or after more than five strikes, you will have to start the quest over.

Click on the suitcase to pick up the battery.

self

The battery glows and sparkles, and you’re pretty nervous about what might happen if you dropped it on the ground… Better use that positive mental attitude!

With a Fully-Charged Kallstone Battery

self

Now all you need to do is ride back to Berzelius the Engineer with the fully-charged battery. You remember what Professor Einstein said about how fully-charged kallstone needs to be handled very carefully and you decide to ride back nice and slowly…

(Tip: The faster you ride, the higher the risk that the battery will explode.)

Objectives: Ride back to Berzelius the Engineer with the fully-charged kallstone battery. Ride slowly; the faster you ride, the higher the risk that the battery will explode.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 25 with The Stoneground Expedition

There is not a damage meter, like there is for the delivering eggs daily quest in Firgrove. You will get a popup warning to not ride so fast. It is best to ride at a canter or slower.

Hello Rita! You made it without being blown to bits! I knew you’d do it.

Final Step

berzelius_the_engineer

Now we’re almost finished, Rita. The only thing left to do is to attach the cables to Frank’s feet. Attach the battery and take cover behind the closest, largest rock. Maybe you’d want to take cover BEFORE you plug in the battery. That’s probably a better way of doing it. Haha!

Good luck! I’ll be behind the rocks over there while you do it, but remember: positive mental attitude! Don’t forget PMA, Rita!

Objectives: Attach the cables to Frank’s feet and plug in the battery.

Dismount your horse to place down the battery, then plug in the cables, then RUN!

The Lightning Renunion

frank_einstein

Oh my gosh, my head! It feels like I got struck by lightning right in my forehead!

Who are you?

Hang on, is that my sister Elsa over there? What’s she doing here? More importantly, what am I doing here?

Frank, you’re back! Oh, what a wonderful day!!

C’mere and give me a hug, dear brother!!

Oh, what a wonderful day…

Enough with feelings. Welcome to the horrible Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur, Frank.

10 Years, No Nobel Prize…

professor_einstein

You’re probably wondering what’s been going on since you became zombified, Frank?

To cut a long story short: ten years ago, you were struck repeatedly in the head by lightning, which turned you into a so-called zombie.

Rita, the wonderfully competent individual standing beside you — along with Berzelius the Engineer — have worked together to cure you of your affliction.

Otherwise, not very much of interest has happened. Nobody in our family has won a Nobel Prize for more years than I’m happy with and no scientific breakthroughs of any significance have come along.

What’s that, Rita? Something exciting must have happened in the world, you say?

Actually, no. Some kind of country team won the World Cup in footsoccer kickball, apparently a lot of people found that interesting. Well, there were a lot of awful shouts and cheers outside my window, in any case. 

Then there was some kind of Olympic something-or-other. Same thing there though, just a lot of awful noise.

Nope, Rita, nothing of interest has actually happened. Nobody succeeded in time travel, built an autonomous AI, created any kind of improved cola drink, or anything else of value.

Enough with this nonsense though. So, Frank Einstein! What are you going to do now?

Objectives: Talk to Frank.

Well, Frank, that’s the gist of everything you’ve missed this past decade…

frank_einstein

Hmm… Doesn’t sound like I’ve missed anything in particular then.

Now, I haven’t had a chance to explore much around here but I have a good feeling about this place!

My brain is sending clear signals that this is a place filled with archaeological treasure!

A Pickaxe in Store

frank_einstein

Yaaawwnnn…

Thanks so much for everything you’ve done, Rita. You seem as though you’re incredibly wise and strong, just like I was when I was younger!

Yaaaawwwnnn…

I actually feel rather tired, it feels like I need a rest. Bit of a shame, but my gut feeling is telling me that there’s plenty of exciting archaeological finds out here in the valley.

Hmm… Y’know Rita, you’ve got potential, it’s unmistakable. With my help you could be a master archaeologist in no time at all. What do you say? Do you want to learn the noble art of archaeology?!

Haha! Excellent Rita, you’re humming the right tune! I suppose I’m still a qualified member of A.A.E.’s archaeological department and I’ll be sure to speak highly of you on my return if you make good on that potential of yours!

This is exciting! Now I’m really starting to wake up! The first thing you need Rita is a proper pickaxe. Heavy, sharp, and lethal. No wimpy weakling tools here, no sir!

Brushes, gloves, and all that junk that all the newly-qualified rookie archaeologists use just feels like a whole load of nonsense to me. A real archaeologist knows that if a find can’t stand up to a proper whack with a pickaxe, then it’s not worth having in the first place.

Ask my sister Elsa if she’s got a pickaxe in storage? I’d much rather be asking my old assistant, Harley, for help, but who knows where he’s got to.

Objectives: Talk to Elsa Einstein.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 25 with A.A.E.’s Archaeological Department

Speak to Professor Einstein if she perchance has a pickaxe you could use.

professor_einstein

Yes Rita, what do you want now?

Frank wants a pickaxe? What would he want one of those for? Have I not helped him enough already?

Return of the Old Assistant

professor_einstein

Has to bother me the whole time… Pff.

Archaeology isn’t one of my bigger interests; Frank knows this. This is something he should really be asking his old assistant, Harley, about. They were like Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee before Frank disappeared…

Aha, I see. So Frank already mentioned Harley, his old assistant?

Today’s your lucky day Rita, I realized that as we’d cured Frank, he would — talkative as he is — disturb me constantly if I didn’t find anybody else to listen to his constant drivel. My calculations showed two possible solutions to restore calm: get the lightning to return Frank to normal, or find Harley and bring him back.

Obviously, I chose the option with Harley, because to recreate the lightning strikes is — as I’m sure you understand — very time consuming. 

Anyway, I found Harley in the Himalayas looking for Frank and told him that Frank was here. If we take account of flight delays, the greenhouse effect, and the speed of light, he should arrive about… Now.

Well, well, would you look at that. There he is over there. He looks a little confused Rita, perhaps you want to go and see how things are with him?

That was a rhetorical question Rita, I was trying to tell you in a friendly way that I don’t want to be bothered anymore.

Off you go. Bye.

Objectives: Talk to Harley.

So there’s that famous sisterly love that I’ve been hearing so much about….

Speak to Harley at his place near the gear shop.

harley

Hello there. What even is this place?

The Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur… Hmm…

I have a vague memory of having been here before. Weird, huh?

That doesn’t matter though, it’s nice to get the chance to see Frank again, my oldest and best friend. He looks just like normal!

Where’s he been these last ten years anyway?

It’s a long story, you say? Okay. I’ll let Frank fill me in later.

What’s your name, by the way?

A Beautiful Reunion with Old Betty

harley

Rita! Lovely to meet you.

Hmm… I really do have quite a strong feeling that I’ve been here before, but this is the first time I’ve been over to this side of Jorvik. Really weird. This feeling was even stronger when I was travelling through Silverglade… Maybe there’s something in the air.

Well anyway, Rita, there’s no need for you to stand here listening to me babble on. How can I help you?

A pickaxe for Frank?

Haha! Of course he wants a pickaxe! Of course…

This is Old Betty, Frank’s favorite pickaxe! Give it to him straight away.

He must have missed it terribly

Objectives: Give the pickaxe to Frank.

Having One’s Pick of the Picks

frank_einstein

Just look at this little marvel, Rita. With Old Betty, you can smash up any rock you want in no time at all!

She’s got an incredible swing, check this out!

Waaaaaaoooooowwww! Oh.

Pff. I’m obviously not in the same shape I used to be. Maybe it’s not the time for me to practice archaeology again just yet, Rita.

You’ll have the honor of using Old Betty and seeing if she’s as lethal as she used to be! Hmm… Right over there seems to be a good spot to get started!

Do you see it, Rita? Right there should be a great spot for a find!

If you come across a find, it’s just a case of getting the pickaxe out and giving it the old heave-ho! If you’re lucky, you’ll find something truly valuable when the dust settles. Go over there and swing away! You’ll see that there’s a real treasure trove there, you mark my words!

Good luck!

Objectives: Use the pickaxe to dig on the find site and return to Frank with what you’ve found.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 25 with A.A.E.’s Archaeological Department

Dismount your horse to use the pickaxe on the rock near the tree behind Berzelius. Return to Frank when you have finished digging.

frank_einstein

Oh, what a lovely sound!

I could hear it all the way from here when you smashed that site to bits! Lovely! Did you find anything of value?

Let me see? Amazing! A dinosaur skull! I don’t know much about these things, but nobody’s been here in the valley for ages, so it’s probably totally unknown to scientists.

Imagine finding a complete dinosaur skeleton?! You’d be famous!

Rita, use the pickaxe and go smashin’ around all the find sites nearby. Come back to me once you’ve found a complete skeleton and we’ll make sure you get to meet Professor Jura, Jorvik’s leading paleontologist. 

If he likes the skeleton you’ve found, then he’ll give you the most fabulous rewards, I promise you that!

Quest completed

Dismount your horse to use the pickaxe on the dig sites located around the perimeter of the camp. You will know a dig site by the particular shape of the rock and a sparkle coming off the top of it when there is a find located inside it. You will also get a small popup message that says a find is nearby.

All of the dig sites are located in the camp FOR THIS QUEST ONLY.

Dig until you have found a complete skeleton which consists of:

  • 3 large bones
  • 1 skull
  • 4 rib bones
  • 2 small bones

When you have all the bones, you can trade them with Frank to unlock the next quest.

On the Road with Dino

frank_einstein

Oh my stars! A complete dinosaur skeleton! Mindblowing!

Wow, Professor Jura at the paleontological facility is going to be blown away by this! You’ll almost definitely be able to name it after yourself! A Dinosaur Rita… Or, umm… Tyrannosaurus Rita! Nah, wait. Now I’ve got it!

A Ritaosaurus!! Hahaha!! Fantastic!

Say hello to Professor Jura from me, you’ll find him in Firgrove. He moved there recently because he likes the peace and quiet and in his later years but his brain is still sharp as a tack!

See you soon, Rita!

Objectives: Talk to Professor Jura in Firgrove.

Rewards: 100 Jorvik Shillings, 50 XP

Reputation: 100 with A.A.E.’s Archaeological Department

You can find Professor Jura in front of his house behind the sale horse stable, in Firgrove.

professor_jura

Good day to you! How can I be of assistance?

A dinosaur skeleton? I see…

From the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur, you say? Never heard of it.

From Frank Einstein?! Isn’t he dead?

Yes, yes, let’s have a look then.

OOH LA LA! Well good gracious, this is quite remarkable! A totally new species! I absolutely must have this skeleton, you can have whatever you want in return!

Ho ho ho! Christmas has come early this year!

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ll be sending this straight to the museum in Jorvik City. My colleagues will be green with envy!

If you find any more skeletons, come here to me immediately. I promise I’ll reward you quite handsomely!

More Treasures of the Valley

professor_jura

Thanks again Miss Rita, thank you for making a happy man very old… Umm, an old man very happy! I haven’t been this delighted since my nemesis, the despicable Professor Krita, dropped a brontosaurus bone on his foot! Oh, how he screeched! HAHAHA!

Hmm… Now I remember who that Frank person is. Frank Einstein! He was a truly promising archaeologist… A bit heavy-handed with the pickaxe perhaps, but great at tracking down relics and antiquities!

Didn’t he have a sister?

Elsie? Elsa! Elsa, was it?

Fabulous woman! My mustache feels like it’s curling up at the sides just thinking about her! She was so spontaneous, funny, and spiritual! Ahhh, those were the days! Ooh la la…!

Or am I thinking of Ms Curie? Hmm… The old memory banks aren’t what they used to be!

Now then, young miss Rita, if you should find more dinosaur skeletons, then I’m always willing to trade them against some of the old bits and bobs I have around here. Tell Frank I said hello! See you soon.

Objectives: Talk to Frank Einstein in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur.

You must be thinking of Ms Curie, because I can assure you that Elsa Einstein is most definitely not the woman you just described…

Return to Dino Valley and give him Jura’s regards.

frank_einstein

Hey Rita! Tell me, how’d it go? What did Professor Jura say?

Haha! He loved it! I knew he would!

He was interested in more skeletons, you say? Aha. Hmm… I think we should be able to arrange something for him! This valley is packed with interesting find sites, I can just feel it!

Get out there and look around the valley! See what you can find, Rita! I imagine a good place to begin would be the area by the elevator to Valedale, or the area north of the lake.

Off you go! Find a complete dinosaur skeleton and swap it for something good with Professor Jura!

Quest completed

Please Note!

Dinosaur hunting is purely voluntary. Completing a skeleton does not give you any XP required to progress in the game, though there are exclusive items to be gained from trading skeletons.

When you have completed a skeleton, trade it with Professor Jura in Firgrove to receive a piece of the Winter Master outfit. After you have turned in a skeleton for the first time, you can continue trading with Jura to receive a new random piece of clothes. There are also extra special finds that you can trade with Harley in Dino Valley to receive a random equipment reward, as well.

How to Hunt Dino Bones:

Dismount your horse to use the pickaxe on the dig sites. You will know a dig site by the particular shape of the rock and a sparkle coming off the top of it when there is a find located inside it. You will also get a small popup message that says a find is nearby.

Not all dig sites are active all the time, and not all digs yield a dinosaur bone. There are MANY dig sites located around the valley, so you will have to check them often. When you have located an active dig site, you have a chance of either finding trash, or a dinosaur bone. When you do find a bone, it is random which one you find, so you may start to pile up lots of the same type of bone. Make sure you have room in your personal inventory to be able to carry around the bones that you find, as they cannot be stored in your stable closet inventory.

There are four different dinosaur skeletons to find, and each one can be found in a specific part of the valley.

  • Small Dinosaur – Around Nic Stoneground’s camp and the elevator
  • Unusual Dinosaur – Around the southeast area of the frozen lake
  • Mysterious Dinosaur – Around the northwest area of the frozen lake
  • Spectacular Dinosaur – In the Valley of the Frozen Mist

That’s all there is to it! Good luck and happy hunting!
