These quests cover several days, or can be done all at once by spending Star Coins.

To unlock these quests, you must have first visited South Hoof Peninsula and started up the ferry there from Fort Pinta.

Once you are known to the people of South Hoof, you can visit Bernadine Winterwell XVII in New Hillcrest.

Modernizing New Hillcrest

bernadine_winterwell_xvii

Hello!

It’s a completely pleasant pleasure to meet you. My name is Bernadine and I’m the decision-taking, ground-breaking, progress-making visionary all-rounder here in New Hillcrest. I pretty much run the show single-handedly on the town council, well at least since about two years ago in any case. 

I’ve seen you, you know! I’ve seen you out and about on the helping hand trail, giving people a boost and a push here and there, and I’d like to offer you the town’s official thank you for all your help at the same time as extending the official welcoming hand of New Hillcrest. I mean I thought it’d be nice if you could get an official welcome to the town from a town official like me. 

Welcome to “New Hillcrest: The No-Frown Town,” as we like to call it. Well, it’s actually just me calling New Hillcrest the no-frown town. For now. I’ve created a new slogan for the town because the old one is so dull and backwards-looking. Listen to this…

“New Hillcrest: a Settlement of Tradition.” Ugh, it’s so bad that it hurts my mouth just to say it. Incredibly dull. I want us to look ahead and highlight the happy, positive spirit of the townsfolk. In spite of everything they’ve got going against them, everyone here is so upbeat and lovely! That’s why it’s much better to have a slogan like…

“New Hillcrest: The No-Frown Town!” It has a much better ring to it, wouldn’t you say?

You think it’s a winner? Haha, great!

I’ve been giving some thought to doing a little market research to investigate the opinion of the people. I’d love to be able to ask the people around town what they think about changing slogans, but I haven’t had time. There’s been so much to do since I took over running the town council. New plans here and new plans there! Everything all at once!

What’s that you say? You could ask people if they want to change slogans to “the no-frown town?” Well of course I’d be thrilled if you could help out, Rita! Thanks!

Go round and ask people here on the square if they think they might like to change slogans.

Objectives: Go round to the townspeople on the square and ask if they’d like to change the town slogan from “New Hillcrest: a Settlement of Tradition” to “New Hillcrest: The No-Frown Town.”

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation with Roadworks

The “Roadworks” is not an official faction. All reputation earned on this story arc go towards building the bridge, which is done in several levels as it was done with the bridge in Moorland.

Speak to the shopkeeps, notary, and others around the square. Most seem happy at the idea, but the notary must be a bit old fashioned.

Return to Bernadine with news of everyone’s opinions.

bernadine_winterwell_xvii

Five out of six people want to change the slogan to “The No-Frown Town?!” Wow! That’s 83.33333%! It’s a landslide!

Hurray! Then it’s decided. We’ll be changing slogans. Thanks for your help Rita!

Typical that the Notary wouldn’t want to change slogans. I had a feeling though. Hehe.

A Link to the Past

bernadine_winterwell_xvii

Everything’s starting to fall into place here in New Hillcrest as we push forward with our plans to build for the future! We’ve changed our slogan and finished building the colorful terraced houses on the other side of the street, and it’s all part of making New Hillcrest more attractive! We’ve already managed to rent out most of the home we’ve built. My forefathers ran the town council before me, but they were afraid of change and wanted to keep everything the same as it ever was. If you resist change, you just end up stuck to the same spot and getting nowhere. If you want to get anywhere in life, you have to dare to see change as something positive!

Another part of our vision for New Hillcrest’s future is to rebuild the link between New Hillcrest and South Hoof. South Hoof is a wonderful place to visit and it’s a tremendous privilege to have it so close by! The landscape there is so beautiful and vast, but the bridge that used to go there has been in disrepair for many, many years. We’ve hired a builder to take care of the restoration, but it seems to be taking him an awfully long time. Donald – as he’s called – seems to know what he’s doing but something in particular seems to have him stumped. 

What’s that you say? You KNOW Donald?! What a remarkable coincidence!

You say you’d like to help?! Oh my, how wonderful! That good name you’ve made for yourself really holds true!

Ride down to Donald and see if there’s any way you can help hurry things along. He’s down at the stables just outside town.

Objectives: Go see Donald down by the stables on the outskirts of New Hillcrest. He seems to need help with repairing the bridge to South Hoof.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Howdy, long time no see, old friend!

Donald can be found behind the sign for the stables race.

Well would you look at that! Rita!

What are you doing here?

High-Level Restoration

mr_bucket

How wonderful to see you again Rita!

Oh really? Bernadine thinks the bridge rebuilding is going too slowly? Well that’s not very reasonable of her. She’s set me on a budget that’s way too tight, and then complains about my productivity. Hmph.

What’s that? You wonder why it’s going slowly?

Umm. Heh, well… The bridge is very tall and rickety. Not stable at all. Then there’s the whole thing of me still suffering from a fear of heights… Then the part where the bridge goes over water and I can’t really be around water because of my fear of, well, water. It’s difficult enough for me to even drink water sometimes.

You think it’s pretty stupid of me to have taken the job on then?

Well yes, I suppose you might be onto something there. I thought it might have been a good way to overcome my fears, but it hasn’t really been going very well on that front…

Really?! You’ll help me fix up the bridge?! Oh, thank you Rita, thank you so much!

We can do this together! We need to give extra support to the bridge with some new pillars and we also need to lay down some new foundations. 

After that’s done and everything’s a bit more stable again, we need to relay the planks along the bridge.

Shall I show you where the bridge needs a bit of reinforcement?

Objectives: Donald tells you about how the bridge between South Hoof and New Hillcrest is in need of repair.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation with Roadworks

You are shown where the pillars and concrete bases go as well as planks on the walkway of the bridge.

PLEASE NOTE! IMPORTANT!!

You are given supplies to build the bridge as a daily quest or you can buy them with Star Coins from the construction shop in New Hillcrest.

PAY ATTENTION to where you lay your supplies as it is possible to still use them on places you have already built and will waste them if you do.

You will not be compensated for wasted supplies. 

mr_bucket

Then you can… Um, I mean WE… Now WE can get started with the rebuilding.

New Pillars for the Bridge

mr_bucket

Okay. Now we’l show Bernadine that we can get through this project at lightning speed! We need to give the bridge new support from underneath with new pillars. But the truck that was supposed to deliver the logs here to the building site just dumped them on the path that leads up to New Hillcrest instead of bringing them all the way here. Really unprofessional if you ask me. You’ll need to ride there and get them. Then we’re going to cut them and plane them so that they’ll be able to replace the broken old pillars.

You can buy ready-made pillars up on the square in New Hillcrest if you like. It’s the same old story though, the budget is so tight because Bernadine wanted to keep the costs down, so you’ll have to pay for the pillars yourself if you want the build to go faster.

Anyway, before you start, I’ll show you where you’ll find the untreated pillars, and where you need to put them up.

Objectives: To make a pillar able to withstand the weight of the bridge, you’ll need to follow these steps.

  1. Collect a log from the hill on the way up to New Hillcrest.
  2. Saw the logs into shape using the cutting machine.
  3. Plane the pillars in the plane machine to get a lovely smooth pillar.

You can buy ready-made pillars from Billy up on the square in New Hillcrest.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP, 3 perfect pillars

Reputation with Roadworks

When making a new pillar, dismount your horse to use the machines.

Return to Donald when you are finished making new pillars.

mr_bucket

These are particularly perfect pillars! Well done Rita!

Ahoy There Sailor!

mr_bucket

Oh my, oh my, I hope a storm isn’t brewing… This bridge is so wobbly that it could just collapse at any moment. The saltwater from the sea has corroded most of the bridge’s foundations, so we’ll need to build new ones right away! Before we get started, we’ll have to collect sacks of cement so we can mix up cement for the foundations. There’s been a delivery of cement sacks to the harbor just behind the stables. You’ll no doubt see the delivery ship’s masts from here, so just head in that direction.

Objectives: Ride to the harbor in New Hillcrest. There’s a ship there that’s arrived loaded with cement for us.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation with Roadworks

The only way to get to ship is to ride up the road to Hillcrest, then down the other side of the hill, but turn before you get to the marshes. Ride around the hill to the small abandoned farmstead and down the stairs to get to the ship. Speak to the sailor there about the cement.

sailor

Ship ahoy, landlubber!

Elving’s the name. I’m a sailor here on this old ship.

You’re here to get the cement for Builder Donald, you say?

Of course! I most certainly do have a delivery of cement for Donald.

The Bridge Building Continues…

sailor

What are you planning to do with the cement?

Ah okay, a bridge? I prefer to take a boat between two islands instead of walking, but I suppose it’s just a matter of taste.

Here’s the cement for Donald anyway. Good luck with your building project, landlubber.

Objectives: Take the cement you got from Sailor Elving and leave it with Donald by the bridge.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation with Roadworks

Return to Donald the same way that you came.

mr_bucket

Perfect, Rita!

Hard Labor Helps you Sleep Better!

mr_bucket

This is the absolute best cement you can get anywhere on Jorvik. The quality of raw materials that go into it is going to make sure this bridge stays sturdy for many years to come. It might even be stable enough for me to think about daring to go over it. Or maybe not. I’m dizzy just thinking about it. 

Whew. My legs are starting to wobble now, and my palms are sweating. Oh no! Stop it Donald!

Must think of something else instead…

Mixing cement! That’s what we were doing! We can focus on that instead. Much better. The sacks are already here thanks to you, so you just need to empty three of them into the cement mixer. Then you need to fetch some water from down at the stables. Take this bucket with you and fill it at the water supply outside the stable. Then pour the water into the cement mixer and switch it on! Then you’re done.

Objectives: In order to mix cement for the bridge’s foundations, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  1. Collect three sacks of cement.
  2. Pour the sacks into the cement mixer (in the grey funnel).
  3. Collect water from the water supply at the stable with the bucket you got from Donald.
  4. Pour the water into the cement mixer (in the blue funnel).
  5. Switch the mixer on and wait until the cement is fully mixed.
  6. Fill your bucket with cement.

You can buy ready-made cement from Billy up at the square in New Hillcrest.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP, 3 buckets of cement

Reputation with Roadworks

Follow the instructions to mix cement, then return to Donald when you are finished.

mr_bucket

You’ve got a perfect mixture of cement here! Very well done, Rita.

Quest completed

Return to Builder Donald when you have fixed all six of each pillar and cement foundation.

______________

Is the Bridge in One Piece?

mr_bucket

What a fantastic job you’ve done Rita! Making a strong start is the most important part of any building project. A strong foundation. It looks great! Oh, no! I have to look down… I’m getting dizzy again…

Ohhh….

Now one of us has to head up onto the bridge to look into what needs doing. It should be sturdy enough to walk on by now. I’d go myself, but it feels way too scary for me.

You’ll do it? That’s such a relief, more than you could ever know.

Whew.

You really think I’ll be able to walk along and deal with heights one day? I can’t really see how, but I hope I’ll be brave enough someday.

Go up onto the bridge now and inspect the floor so that we can see where we need to set out new planks. 

Objectives: You need to go up onto the bridge and inspect where the planks might be broken. Once that’s done, go back to Donald and let him know what you’ve found.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation with Roadworks

Wow, this bridge is a mess, but not so much as Donald is with all his phobias. This will be a cakewalk.

mr_bucket

Wow! Good job! I’ve no idea how you can be up that high on that bridge. You’re a brave one!

______________

Get Away for a While

mr_bucket

How very brave you are Rita! I wish I had as much courage as you when it comes to heights.

So you’re saying the planks are completely ruined in many spots along the bridge? Oh, typical!

Would you like to know something else that’s typical? We’re all out of wood so we can’t make any more planks. I don’t know how we’re going to get around this if I’m honest…

You saw trees we could use? And we can cut them down? They’re on the other side of town?

Well, there we go then! Fantastic, we’re back on track! Rita, is there no problem you can’t solve? Ride to that spot in the woods you talked about and chop down as many trees as we need. I’ve even got an axe you can borrow!

Objectives: Ride to the outskirts of New Hillcrest and chop down a couple of trees, then ride back to Donald to drop them off.

Last Phase of the Build

mr_bucket

Now we’re getting some wind in our sails! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for this project. Oh! If only it was a tunnel we were building… Tunnels don’t bother me when it comes to either heights or water…

Hmm, you still think I’ll be able to walk along the dizzy heights of the bridge? Well, thanks for the support Rita!

But now we need to get this thing finished once and for all. It’s about time we get South Hoof and New Hillcrest back together again! Take one of the logs and make planks out of it. There’s a sawing machine and the planing machine there as you know. I’ve also set up the treatment machine so that you can treat the wood in a special way that stops it from decaying in the wind and weather, helping it stand up to all the use the bridge will get. Hurry now, let’s get this done!

Objectives: To make a plank that’ll stand up to the use it’ll be getting as part of the bridge, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Collect a log from the pile next to Donald.
  2. Saw the logs into straight planks using the sawing machine.
  3. Plane the planks in the planing machine to get rid of rough edges and splinters.
  4. Treat the planks against wear and tear in the treating machine.

You can buy ready-made planks from Billy up on the square in New Hillcrest.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP, 3 perfect planks

Reputation with Roadworks

Dismount your horse to use all three of the machines, then return to Donald when you are finished.

mr_bucket

What craftsmanship Rita! The planks look wonderful. I couldn’t have done them better myself!

Quest completed

Return to Builder Donald when you have fixed all six sections of the walkway on the bridge.

Who Dares Wins!

mr_bucket

You should be proud of yourself, Rita! The bridge looks wonderful from here. If only I could dare to go up along it to see what it’s like up close.

Sigh…

You think I can do it? It’s a very stable looking bridge, I must say.

But no. I don’t dare do it…

Why do I feel like this? I’m so tired of it.

You’re going to help me across to the other side of the bridge so that I can conquer my fear of heights?

Hmm…

It could work. We can give it a go, but you need to stay right next to me the whole time.

Okay? Let’s give it a try.

Gulp.

Objectives: Help Donald overcome his fear of heights by leading him across the bridge.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Walk next to Donald as he makes his way across the bridge. He needs a friend that sturdier than this fine bridge you’ve just built.

Beating Fear

What? We’ve only gone a few feet along the bridge?!

Ohh, I though we were much farther along than that!

We don’t need to go the WHOLE way across to beat my fears, do we?

But the bridge is so long! You really think I’m going to be able to do this?! Thanks for being here for me Rita.

Okay, let’s try a little bit more, then.

Oooohhhhhh…!

Bernadine’s on her way here. Talk to her, because I think she said she wanted a word with you. You should be very proud of what you’ve achieved with the bridge project! It looks incredible.

Bye for now my friend! Hope to see you again soon!
