Visit Andy by the Firgrove Sandpit to see what he has planned.

The Start of Something New!

andy

Hey there Rita! What fun that you called by! A few days ago, I was reading about this thing called geocaching; ever heard of it?

No?

No worries, I hadn’t either, but I thought it sounded really exciting so I’ve decided to organize a special geocaching contest here in Firgrove!

I can tell you more about it if you’re interested in helping out?

You are? Great! This is going to be so much fun! Haha!!

In order to get started, we’l have to write a few clues.

What am I going to do with the clues? Haha… You’ll see! First I need to find my pen, I’ve got no idea where I’ve put it.

Could you help me have a look for it?

Objectives: Help Andy find his pen.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with Firgrove

Search the area for Andy’s pen. Bring it back to him when you find it.

andy

That’s it! Thanks ever so much Rita! I’d never have found it without you!

Now, what were we talking about? Ah, of course, I was going to tell you more about geocaching!

Geocaching is a little bit like orienteering, except instead of looking for coordinates on a map, you’re looking for so-called ‘treasure.’ The treasure should always be found at the end of the trail, and the treasure could be absolutely anything under the sun!

In certain variants of geocaching, you have to look for clues to be able to find the cache of treasure.

I’m going to be doing it in my own style… Maybe we could call it AndyCaching or perhaps even GeoAndy? Haha!

If you wait just a little while Rita, I’ll just write down a few clues and then I’ll tell you a little bit more about what you’ll be able to help with.

Typing Up the Clues

andy

So there we go! The clues are written, and they’re pretty great, if you ask me, hehe… I wonder how long it’ll take before someone’s able to work out exactly where the first clue leads to?

Unfortunately, I’m not able to tell you what I’ve written or where it leads to, Rita… It’s a secret!

 That said, it’d be great if you could help me by rolling up these clues and tying them all up with this ribbon. Make it into a nice bow if you’re able to!

Oh, and Rita… Promise you won’t take a sneaky peek at the clues when you’re rolling them up. Not that I think you’d do that, but it’s really important that the clues stay secret for everyone, at least until the contest gets under way.

Here’s some ribbon. Roll up the papers and then tie them up into a bow with this ribbon, then it’ll all be perfect!

Objectives: Tie up the clues using the ribbon Andy gave you.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with Firgrove

Dismount your horse and use the ribbon from your inventory to tie up the clues. Speak to Andy when you are finished.

andy

Nice work on the clues! Good ribbon work, haha! They look really exciting! I bet you’re wondering what’s written on them, hehe!

Has the Delivery Been Delivered?

andy

How lovely of you to ask if there’s anything you can help out with Rita, honestly, it’s really nice of you.

Since it’ll be me organizing the whole event, it wouldn’t be fair for me to take part, so I’ve ordered both posters and leaflets to be handed out in Firgrove. I think this could be something really big! Maybe something we’ll be famous for! Think about it… Rita and Andy’s Geocaching! Sounds awesome!

I’ve got tons to do; would you mind riding over to see my grandma, Mrs Packard? Ask her if the leaflets and posters I’ve ordered have been delivered yet…

Objectives: Ride to Firgrove Village and talk to Mrs Packard.

Speak to Mrs Packard outside her house in the back of the village.

mrs_packard

Oh, my dear sweet little Rita, you’re a busy bee as usual, I can see!

Aha! You’ve spoken to Andy and he’s asked you to come up and see me. Of course, yes, his delivery has been delivered! There are some lovely posters and leaflets that need to be put up and handed out.

Andy already spoke to the Councilman and got his permission to hand out the leaflets and put up the posters, so everything’s not that far away from being done and dusted!

Posters in Firgrove

mrs_packard

Andy’s really put his heart and soul into this project, wouldn’t you say, Rita dear?

And have you seen the lovely posters he’s ordered? They’re quite something. Perhaps you’ll be able to put them up around the village? I think he’ll be ever so grateful for all your help, sweetest Rita. What luck we all have that you’re such a lovely friend!

Put up the posters in and around the village so everyone can see them. It’s really very lovely of you to help out!

Objectives: Put up the posters all around Firgrove Village.

Here are the flyers And has delivered, aren’t they snazzy?!

They need to be posted into all the letterboxes around the village. It’s so lovely of you to help Andy with his project, sweetest Rita!

You only need to post one flyer in each of the letterboxes in the village, then people should hopefully apply to take part in the competition!

Express Delivery!

mrs_packard

Well, well! The flyers are handed out and the posters are up, and it’s all because of you, dear sweet Rita!

Oh my goodness gracious, I very nearly forgot! A huge parcel has arrived for Andy in today’s mail. I’m sure it has something to do with his competition. I wonder if you’d be even more precious and take it over to him?

Following Instructions

andy

I bought a treasure chest online! How amazing is that?!

I figured it’d be pretty cool to have the competition-winner’s prize in the treasure chest! If I read the instructions out, would you be able to put it together?

Nice! Right then, step one says: take the bottom part and lat it flat on the ground.

Then it says you take the lid and place it on the bottom section.

Lastly, it says you have to screw in the screws so that the lid is firmly attached to the bottom part.

Then when these three steps have been successfully completed, you will be the proud owner of a ready-to-use treasure chest!

Doesn’t sound that bad, eh Rita?

Objectives: Help Andy put the treasure chest together.

Rewards: 35 Jorvik Shillings, 45 XP

Reputation: 25 with Firgrove

Dismount your horse to assemble the treasure chest.

First,, place the two pieces, then use the screwdriver on them. Speak to Andy when you are finished.

andy

Great! Thanks so much Rita! It’s lovely, you really were great at putting it all together!

Now I’m off to hid the clues I wrote earlier, so it’s probably best that you call back tomorrow if you’d still like to carry on with helping out! While I’m out fixing up the clues, there’s not much else to do.

Quest completed

Return to Andy tomorrow.
