An Unexpected Collaboration

shady_guy

Shh. Listen to me! 

I just got the word that the thief has already struck! He’s at it right now at the lighthouse! If we hurry there we might be able to catch him red handed. Quick! To the lighthouse!

(The crook jumps up behind you on your horse and points up towards the lighthouse above the beach.) 

Quick! Ride! Ride like the wind!

Objectives: Hurry now! Ride to the lighthouse before the thief slips away…

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 5 with Moorland Stable

Follow the checkpoints to complete the race to the lighthouse.

shady_guy

Looks like we made it…

Stay quiet now, he’s probably still inside the lighthouse.

Caught Red Handed

shady_guy

The thief must be in there…

Hey, sneak in and see if you can open the door without making any noise. If you manage that, I’ll jump in and grab him.

Careful now, creep up to the door and focus on opening it completely silently. We don’t wanna scare him off, now we’ve got this close…

Objectives: Sneak up to the door and open it slowly so that the thief doesn’t notice.

Dismount your horse and approach the lighthouse. Something doesn’t feel right about this…

Smack!

You feel yourself faint.

“Umm… Hello?”

“Are you awake?”

You find yourself awake at Mrs Holdsworth’s house.

mrs_holdsworth

Hello?

Are you awake?

Rita?

Hello there, how’s your head? Let’s have a look at you… Nope, seems like you’re past the worst of it. Seems like you’ll have a bit of a bump there for a while, but it’ll go down.

What are you doing here, you ask? Well, let’s see…

______________

A Crafty Plan. Almost Worked.

mrs_holdsworth

I heard an almighty crash up at the lighthouse a short while ago, so I went up there to see what on earth was going on. I found the door off its hinges and you on the ground, completely out for the count and impossible to get through to. I carried you down here and let you get some rest, in peace and quiet. A few hours’ rest and the vapors from one of my famous herbal broths seems to have done the trick. 

One thing that was rather strange, Rita… When I found you up there at the lighthouse, you had one of Josh’s trophies in your hand. One of the ones that was stolen a little while back.

You’ve no idea how Josh’s trophy made it into your hand?

I believe you Rita, you’d never do a thing like that.

I think there’s someone trying to pin the blame for these thefts on you!

Probably the actual thief trying to get away with it. You were lucky it was me who found you because it would’ve been rather difficult to explain to the police why you had stolen goods on you if they found you like that.

But, one question: Why were you up in the lighthouse in the first place?

What’s that? You rode there with some crooked character from the beach to try and stop the thief? 

Aha. Seems quite clear what’s going on here, then. That shady character who followed you up to the lighthouse must be the thief himself! When you started asking difficult questions, he must’ve tried to get rid of you and get away with it all at the same time. A crafty plan… If I hadn’t heard all that commotion and noise from the lighthouse, it would’ve worked. 

Probably best that you ride down to Dark Core’s camp as quick as you can, and confront that thief before he gets away!

Objectives: Ride down to the beach and confront the thief.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 10 with Moorland Stable

Find the shady character down on the beach. Somebody has got some explaining to do!

shady_guy

Hmm? Thief?

Why are you saying I’m busted?

No point playing dumb, you say?

Umm…

What are you talking about and who even are you?

Hold on a minute! You seem to think you’re talking to my predecessor, the guy who was standing here just a couple of hours ago. Well, you’re not! Talking to him, that is. That much I can tell you!

He was hastily replaced about half an hour ago. Disappeared on one of our ships. The last I saw of him was that he was running off onto the ship, quicker than a rat up a drainpipe. He didn’t look like he had time to pack either, as he looked empty-handed as he left.

Now you can get lost, I haven’t got time to talk to you! Beat it!

The Thief Left the Beach Empty-Handed

shady_guy

What?

Stolen goods?

Hmm… I don’t know what you’re talking about. Sounds interesting though…

Probably best I take a look at my predecessor’s belongings. He disappeared so fast that all his things are left there on the boat.

Do excuse me one second. I’ll go and investigate at once. If I find anything interesting, I’ll let you know. You can rely on me! Hehe…

What’s that? If you don’t get to take a look for yourself, you’ll call the police?

Grr…

Okay, okay.

Go through his stuff yourself, then. You have to promise not to call the police though! Promise? This isn’t something to joke about!

Now you’ve promised. My predecessor kept his things in a wooden box on the boat over there by the radio equipment.

Objectives: Find the stolen goods on the boat, then return to the beach.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with Moorland Stable

Board the ship and search the crate near the back of the boat. Return to the new shady character guy on the beach when you have collected everything.

shady_guy

Did you find his things?

There were stolen goods, you say?

Hehe…

If they really were stolen goods, then the only fingerprints on them now are yours! Here at Dark Core, we all wear gloves!

If I remember rightly, you had all these things with you when you arrived…

Maybe I’ll just call the police myself and tell them I’ve caught the thief? Maybe you can just give me all the loot and we can forget all this ever happened. What do you say?

Hehe…

What? You think I should call the police?

Umm… You’re sure they’ll take your word over mine?

Umm…

Grr… Okay you win. This time.

A Pie Tin for An Old Lady

shady_guy

You beat me this time, but I’m not as dumb as the last guy. We’ll meet again, you can be sure of that…

Grr… The smell of all that baking from that old granny’s house is so good. If my predecessor hadn’t taken the pie, I’d have done it myself.

Hey listen, give the pie case back to the old dear and maybe she’ll set out another pie to cool sometime soon. Then I’ll be ready and waiting… Hehe.

Now get out of here! And take this junk with you!

Objectives: Give the pie tin back to Mrs Holdsworth.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 20 with Moorland Stable

Ride back to Mrs Holdsworth to return her pie tin.

mrs_holdsworth

Hello Rita!

Oh, that looks like my pie tin. Some crook down there wanted you to give it back to me so he can steal the next pie I bake?

You know what Rita? I’ll be making my super-extra-double-ultra-volcano spicy chili pie! I’ve baked it only once before, and it was for the final of that reality show “Jorvik’s Biggest Dummy,” where the first person to eat a whole piece of pie won the contest and got a million Jorvik Shillings. 

That was the first year that there were no winners at all. Haha.
