Let’s check and see how Jonas is feeling today after his adventure yesterday.

A New Career for Jonas

jonas

Hello again Rita! Lovely day, isn’t it?

Yesterday was a little more dramatic, wouldn’t you say? I lost my fishing boat, almost drowned, and then very nearly froze to death. Got plenty done, I’d say! Haha!

Ah well, mustn’t grumble, we’re all here feeling fine and with a new friend to boot! I mean you, of course Rita. Many thanks for all you’ve done!

Now I think about it, it was rather a good day in the end.

Objectives: Talk to Jonas.

Any day you don’t die is a good day.

jonas

My fishing boat?

Ah, no. It’s on the seabed now, rotting away amongst the crabs and seaweed. I’d started to get a little bit fed up of all that fishing though, and it feels like this might be a bit of a sign to try something new… Can’t do the same thing every day of your life, now can you Rita?

Perhaps a few more visitors might start coming to South Hoof soon, wouldn’t you think? I was thinking about maybe opening some kind of shop to give the visitors somewhere to buy the essentials… That would work, wouldn’t it Rita?

South Hoof Shopping

jonas

You think a store sounds like a good idea?

Excellent news Rita! Then I suppose it’s time to put fishing behind me and set course for a career as a businessman. Feels good!

Do you think you could help me get started, Rita? Sigrid says I still need to rest… If she sees me doing anything other than taking it easy, she’ll go crazy. You’ll help? Oh Rita, you’re a lifesaver!

I know there are some boxes of clothes, horse equipment, and other odds and ends hanging around on the farm someplace. No one here is interested in them, but there’s actually some pretty nice stuff, and I think I could probably have them for sale! If you could find the boxes and bring them here, I think we might have something to work with.

Objectives: Look around the garden for boxes for Jonas’ shop.

The boxes can be found inside the two barns. When you have picked all of them up, return to Jonas.

jonas

They look like just the boxes I was thinking of. Great work Rita!

Set Up Shop!

jonas

Would you mind helping me a little more, Rita? If I start working now, Sigrid will make my life a misery, you can count on that!

You’ll help? That’s the spirit Rita, thanks!

If you could open up the boxes and set them over there? There should be a few posts and some material in there as well. If you set it all up it could well start to look like some kind of shop! It’s gonna be really nice!

Objectives: Set the boxes out in the places Jonas pointed out.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 30 with South Hoof

Dismount your horse to use the box from your inventory. Once all the boxes are set up, return to Jonas.

jonas

Hey, that’s looking great Rita!

Payment Solutions…

jonas

Hmm… I just thought of something Rita… I don’t think I’ll be standing at the store selling things the whole time. It doesn’t seem particularly rewarding to just stand there and wait for people to turn up… Nope, we’ll have to think of something else.

Hmm…

I think I’ve got it! People round here are decent types, no thieves in this neck of the woods! I think it’ll be enough to just set out a little box where people can leave their money when they want to buy something? I reckon that’ll do the trick, don’t you Rita?

Hey, set these boxes out next to each of the shops. Then we’re all done!

Objectives: Set up the boxes for Jonas’ shop.

Rewards: 60 Jorvik Shillings, 40 XP, Beautiful Seafaring Saddle

Reputation: 35 with South Hoof

Remain on foot and place a lockbox at each shop, then return to Jonas.

jonas

Well just look at that, Rita! What lovely shops we have! Really lovely! Now we just need to hope someone wants to come and buy things from them!

Thanks for everything Rita. I looked through the boxes and found this… I think it’ll suit you perfectly!

Thanks again, and I hope we’ll see each other again soon Rita!

Quest completed

Holly wants to speak to us now. Let’s go find her behind the house.

One Last Thank You from Holly

holly

Hey again Rita! I hoped to be able to catch you before you rode off!

Thanks so much for all your help. I don’t know what we’d have done if you didn’t turn up and save everyone!

Have you met my husband Erik, by the way? You only saw each other very briefly out at Cape Sorrow…

Objectives: Talk to Erik.

Rewards: 100 Jorvik Shillings, 50 XP

Reputation: 45 with South Hoof

Pleased to meet you sir, even though you be grumpy.

erik

Hi Rita!

Like Holly just said, I’m Erik.

Thanks for saving us. I was really frightened out there on Cape Sorrow, but I tried to put on a brave face for Madison. Now though, I’m mostly angry. This would never have happened if it wasn’t for my stupid father!

As long as nobody other than him gets into trouble on his little adventures, then I don’t care so much, but this time he put my daughter Madison in harm’s way. He’s taken it too far now. I don’t know what I’m gonna do but things can’t carry on like this…

I’m sorry, Rita.

I won’t drag you into our family conflicts. Thanks again, I hope to see you again when all this has calmed down.

Quest completed

Sigrid also has some words for us. Let’s go see her by the lighthouse.

The Ferry to South Hoof

sigrid

Good day to you Rita. If I understand correctly, you’ve already been inside the lighthouse, otherwise I would have gladly given you a tour.

Might you have time to help me out with one more thing?

It’s to do with the ferry that used to go between South Hoof and Fort Pinta. I’d love to see it get going again. What if an accident happens at some point? We’d need to be able to connect with the mainland in a hurry in that case…

I don’t know who to talk to on the mainland, but perhaps James in Fort Pinta can help you? I don’t know him, but apparently he’s the one who calls the shots over there…

You’re not sure James is the right person to talk to, but you’re happy to help anyway, you say? Thanks Rita!

I hope to see you again sometime.

Objectives: Talk to James about the ferry between Fort Pinta and South Hoof. Seems like he’s already here at South Hoof, by the ferry landing.

I thought you were… Allergic to water??

james

Hey Rita! 

Check me out, just arriving by ferry! Cool, right? Hmm? Why is the ferry running?

 

Well, when I told everyone about the dark lighthouse at South Hoof, the few tourists who were left went crazy and wanted to visit South Hoof to see for themselves. So I called the Councilman at Silverglade and told him what had happened. When he heard you’d gone to South Hoof on your own, he suddenly became very serious and said he’d fix the ferry situation immediately. Only a couple of hours went by before there was a new ferry turning up at the dock at Fort Pinta. I got to come across on the maiden voyage, and here I am! The ferry will travel regularly between South Hoof and Fort Pinta from now on!

A Little Souvenir from South Hoof

james

There’s gonna be some big bucks to be made here Rita! Now you and all the tourists can come here as often as you like!

I’ll take my boat back that you borrowed. You know it was only to borrow, right? Of course you can borrow it again if you pay the rental fee. 

Objectives: Talk to James again.

Reputation: 50 with Fort Pinta

Wow, you should be paying me for fixing it so that you have a boat to rent out!

james

If that’s all the thanks you get for helping? Haha, of course not Rita!

Here’s a little token of my appreciation. A little souvenir to remind you of your adventures at South Hoof. I was thinking about selling them to the tourists. They’ll go like hot cakes, don’t you think?

Seeya around Rita!

Quest completed

You have now discovered the South Hoof ferry station. The first time you discover it, you may have to call for pick up and discover the other end in Fort Pinta. I had to do that on my main account, but not on my blog account. So I do not know if it was initially a glitch that has been fixed or if it just does not work right away for some people.

The pink ferry to South Hoof does not have a map icon, but it runs on the same rotation as the green ferry to Fort Pinta. Make sure you are waiting long enough for it if it seems it is not appearing to you.
