Speak to Dorith Jarlasson on Paddock Island.

Sheep on the Run!

dorith_jarlasson

Excuse me, might I trouble you for just a second?

Oh, lovely. You’re Rita, aren’t you? What luck that you’ve popped by. I’ve heard so many great things about how you seem to have helped absolutely everyone around here with all kinds of things! Would you maybe have time to help me solve a little problem as well?

Oh, thank you, Rita! You see, I should’ve shorn the sheep this morning but just as I was opening the gate to go in, I heard this huge explosion coming from G.E.D.’s den on the other side of the water. 

The sheep went nuts, and ran straight out of their pasture before I had the chance to close the gate. I managed to gather up most of them, but there are still a few I haven’t been able to get hold of. They’ll wander back on their own eventually, but right now they’re eating up all my pumpkins, nibbling on my flowers, and munching their way through just about everything I grow around here. The little so-and-sos run away every time I chase them, but you should be able to catch them on horseback! Could you help me round them up, Rita?

You could? Thanks! You don’t need to lead them back, just catching them should be enough to make them realize the fun’s over and it’s time for them to head back.

Come back when you’ve got hold of them all!

Objectives: Catch all of the escaped sheep on Paddock Island, then return to Dorith Jarlasson.

Rewards: 30 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 25 with The Jarlasson Family

Ride around in Dorith’s fields and click on the sheep to catch them and send them back to their own paddock. Speak to Dorith when you have caught all of the sheep.

dorith_jarlasson

All the sheep are back in the pasture; great job Rita. Your reputation is well-earned, I must say!

Pumpkins for Bob’s Perfect Pie

dorith_jarlasson

Would you perhaps have time to help me with one more thing, Rita? You see, my granddaughter Lisa celebrates her birthday today and I’ve promised her dad Bob — my son as you no doubt already understand — that he would get a whole load of pumpkins from me so that he’d be able to make Lisa’s favorite: Bob’s Perfect Pumpkin Pie.

I’ve been so take up with the whole sheep drama that I haven’t had time to get over to Bob’s with the pumpkins. Would you be able to harvest a few pumpkins for me and ride them over to Bob? He lives right here on the island, so it’s not a long ride.

You’ll do that for me? Oh, how wonderful Rita, you’re a rock!

Objectives: Harvest pumpkins then head over to Bob Jarlasson on Paddock Island.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Hello there, how can I help you?

Ooh, you have pumpkins with you from my mum? Great! Now I’ll get started on my special Perfect Pumpkin Pie for my daughter’s birthday! Just wait until you see how happy Lisa will be…

Mini Pies to Mini Birthday Girls

bob_jarlasson

I’d thought about getting started with the birthday baking as soon as I woke up this morning, but now it’ll be a little late… Well, I suppose if I get started right away I might just about make it in time for the big family dinner this evening.

You know what? My daughter Lisa, whose birthday it is, has waited the whole day for this birthday pie. I’ve made a mini version with the last pumpkin I had; it’s not very bi, but it would make her super happy if she got to taste a little piece now! Do you think you could give it to her?

Thanks Rita, she’s standing right there by the paddock. See you soon!

Objectives: Give the piece of pie to Lisa Jarlasson.

Oh my gosh, what an amazing piece of pie! I want more! I suppose I’ll have to wait for this evening until I get some… Sigh. But I’ve got such a sweet tooth, I don’t want to wait!

Hey Rita, would you be able to ride over and talk to Catherine at the cafe by the harbor and ask if you can get a piece of her delicious cake for me? It’s really tasty, would you go for me? Would you?

Pleeeeeeease, it’s my birthday after all! Please, I’m too little to go there on my own… Pleeeeeease?!!

Oh wow, thank you! You’re so nice! Tell her it should be a big piece, I’m really hungry! Haha!

Nature’s Candy

catherine

Hmm… I don’t really want to give Lisa more cake, but you can have this delicious orange to give to her instead: nature’s candy! I’m sure that’ll make her happy.

You don’t think she will be? Nature’s candy. Do you think any kid has ever fallen for that?

Sigh. No, I suppose it is her birthday after all. Here, take this nice piece of cake and give it to her from me. Bye Rita!

Return to Lisa with the piece of cake.

lisa_jarlasson

Hey Rita! Ooh, that cake looks amazing, is it for me? Yaaaaay!

Omnomnomnom! Tasty, tasty, very very tasty! Haha! Now I guess I’ll need a nap this afternoon if I’m gonna be able to manage even more cake this evening. Thanks for the cake, Rita! Seeya!

The Tale of the Earl’s Return

hanna_jarlasson

Hold on. Bear with me.

Bear with… I’m just going to read the last page. Bear with…

Bear with…

Finished. The book’s finished. This is the best thing I’ve ever read! I need to read the next installment! Now!

Hey, have you got a copy of “The Tale of the Earl’s Return” on you? You haven’t?!

Oh no.. Where will I find a copy? It’s the best thing I’ve ever read in my whole life, and this is the last book in the trilogy.

What trilogy? What planet are you on? It’s only the best trilogy in the history of the world, the Earl Trilogy! First there’s “Earl Wars”, then “The Earl Strikes Back”, and the final part is “The Tale of the Earl’s Return.” You’ve never heard of it? Sigh. Grownups are so lame, you don’t get anything. 

Ah well, I guess I’ll give up. I’ll never be able to read it…

What? Maybe someone else has a copy? Hmm…

I know! Ask Grandma Dorith! The Earl Trilogy was her favorite set of books when she was young as well! Ask her if I can borrow the book from her.

Objectives: Ask Dorith if she has a copy of “The Tale of the Earl’s Return” she could lend out.

Book Lending to Donald the Builder

dorith_jarlasson

Hmm… I’m almost certain I lent it to Donald the Builder. It must’ve been years since he borrowed it, so he’s probably had chance to read it by now. It’s probably best you ask him yourself if he’s finished with it, in which case you’re welcome to borrow it.

Bye bye for now Rita!

Returned! Kinda.

“The Tale of the Earl’s Return”? Well, I got finished reading that just a couple of days ago! Seems it had fallen down the back of my bookcase and I found it last week when I was cleaning behind it! A wonderful book!

If you can borrow it?

Ah, well you can see Rita, I don’t have it anymore. I gave it to Jack when he stopped by the other day; he was on his way to Paddock Island and promised to give it back to Dorith while he was there. If Dorith hasn’t already got it back, it’s probably best you ask Jack where it is.

See you soon!

The Wicked Book Thief

jack_goldspur

 She said I didn’t give it to her? What? She’s a liar!

Oh my days, she always has to say I’m in the wrong. Ugh.

Or, wait… Maybe I gave it to Ms Drake? Yeah, that’s probably it. They’re so alike it’s barely even possible to tell them apart, right? Stiff. Boring. Ugly clothes. No humor…

Why I gave the book to Ms Drake? Well, I actually dropped it, if I’m honest, and she picked it up before I got my hands on it and basically just refused to give it back to me, even though I said it was mine. She’s evil, Rita. Evil and wicked. I was almost crying, y’know? She said such mean things…

Don’t tell anyone, Rita! Promise!

Suppose you go and speak to Ms Drake though. If you wanted to. See if she’ll give my book back. I wouldn’t dare.

Beg on Your Bare Knees

Jack said I swiped it from him? Ha! Has he got any proof?

Nah, exactly. Didn’t think so.

If you can have it? Ha! Why would I give it to you? Not that I’d ever read that lousy book… I just enjoy seeing you standing here asking me for it.

If you really want it Rita, do you know what you’ll have to do?

You’ll have to beg. On your bare knees. Hahaha!

(You really don’t want to beg on your bare knees. Maybe you can find another way around this?)

Objectives: You try to come up with a way to get Ms Drake to hand over the book without you having to beg on your bare knees for it…

Dismount your horse to see if you could maybe swipe the book from her?

Oops! You lost your footing on a loose stone and fell.

You land on your knees in front of Ms Drake.

She looks pretty pleased with herself. She probably thinks it was intentional…

ms_drake

Haha! If there’s one thing I find pathetic, it’s people who beg! You’ll never get the book from me now Rita, you’re a truly weak person! Haha!

Wow, I remember when Lord Konrag told Jon Jarl that he’s his father, I was so shocked I fell right off my chair! Or when Jon throws the one necklace to rule them all into the lava of the Garnok volcano, that was so cool!

You haven’t read it, you say?

Oh. Umm… Sorry. I probably should’ve thought about that. Spoiler alert.

It doesn’t matter, you say? Whew! Thanks for being so good-hearted, Rita. Take the book back with you and give it to whoever wants to read it now!

Super-Jarl Has Disappeared!

joe_jarlasson

Waaaaahhhh!! SUPER-JARL! WHERE ARE YOU?!

Meeeeeeehhh!! Waaaaaaaaahhhh!!!

Oh… Sniffle… Hello. Have you seen Super-Jarl? Sniffle.

Who’s Super-Jarl?! YOU DON’T KNOW?! He’s the greatest! Strongest! Biggest! Best! And he can fly faster than lightning!! How can you not know who Super-Jarl is?!

Wow, I’m so astonished that I’ve forgotten I was sad. Who are you, anyway? Rita? You must be, like, the only person ever to not know who Super-Jarl is.

Sigh. If I tell you what he looks like, would you be able to help me find him? You would? Yay!!

Super-Jarl is the biggest, the strongest, and the fastest, about eight inches tall and he can move his arms up and down. He says awesome stuff like “It’s Jarlatime!”, “By the light of Aideen!”, and “Feel the power of my Jarla-saber!” He has his magical Jarla-saber, you see. Now you remember him, right? No?

Well, it doesn’t matter. If you help me find him, it’d be really nice of you. I’ll look here if you look over there… He must be around here somewhere!

Bad Signal on Paddock Island

Pff… Blasted telephone! It’s always the way with this new technology! Nothing ever works!!

Grrr… Oh, sorry.

You must excuse me, I’m just angry at my shiny new jPhone. It doesn’t want to work, the darned and blasted piece of junk! What’s wrong with it? The reception on it is so bad that I can barely call from it, let alone browse. Junk, I tell you! Junk!

Your phone’s also got bad reception, you say?

Well that’s strange in itself… It can’t just be some kind of coincidence, can it? Hmm… I used to be an engineer, so maybe I should get stuck in and fix it instead of just standing here whining about it. Would you help me, Rita?

Thank you! The youth of today aren’t quite as lazy and incompetent as people seem to think, that’s what I say!

How about this? Take my jPhone and ride around the three cellphone masts on the island, and see if you can pick up any reception while you’re near them. If you’re not able to, then there’s definitely something fishy going on…

Objectives: Ride to each of the three cellphone masts on Paddock Island and see if there’s a good reception by any of them.

Scoundrels Across the Water

kent_jarlasson

There must be something bothering the cell traffic… All three masts breaking down at once is highly unlikely.

Do you know what I think, Rita? I think those G.E.D. scoundrels across the water have got something to do with this. Wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if they were firing up some kind of electronic gizmo that’s interfering with the phone reception…

You’re going over to check it out, you say? Are you sure Rita?! Those G.E.D. types are a shady bunch, you can’t trust them… Maybe they’re dangerous? You think it’ll be alright? Well then, just make sure you’re careful. If you find anything, ride straight over to Jill in Jarlaheim and tell her.

Good luck, and promise you’ll be careful!

Removing the Illegal Transmitter

jill_goldspur

I’ve had lots of complaints from the people of Jarlaheim that the cellphone reception has been bad lately. I suspected it might have had something to do with G.E.D. but Ms Drake denied everything whenever I’ve confronted her. She says G.E.D. are working within the law and that she should sue me for defamation for making any suggestion otherwise. 

Give this message to Ms Drake. I’ve written a letter to say that G.E.D. have to remove all transmission equipment immediately. Tell her she has 24 hours exactly to comply, at which time I’ll apply to Jorvik’s High Court to sue her and G.E.D. for all their worth!

A letter from Jill Goldspur. Ha! What could that crank possibly want this time?

Aaaaahhh!! How could she have found the transmission equipment?! I told them to hide it properly so that nobody could find it! How could she have found it?!

It was just behind a few stones, you say? Sigh. Can’t ever trust those lousy lumpheads… Someone’s going to have to carry the can for this… The board will no doubt be demanding someone’s head on a plate, and sure as lemons are lemons, it won’t be mine!

Hmm… The site supervisor. Chief moron. He’ll get the boot. No! I’ll fire the whole team! Hah! No. The whole team as well as everyone within G.E.D. who has the same first name as them! Nobody will dare to pin this on me after such a drastic firing: they’ll know what’s waiting for them if they do!

That it was contradictory to G.E.D.’s core values?! Hahaha! I’m guessing she means they got found out, that’s the only thing G.E.D. don’t accept!

Good work anyway Rita, but I don’t trust that Ms Drake. I’m going to investigate the areas around G.E.D.’s other exploration stations around town. I wouldn’t be surprised to find the same equipment there…
