You visit Professor Hayden in the Mirror Marshes to find his campsite totally trashed. I wonder what’s happened here?

Avoiding the Shards

professor_hayden

Oh, blithering bugs!

Hmph. What do you want, hmm? Haven’t I already said that you’re to take your swamp walks in a place where I’m NOT? Can’t you see I’m busy? Kids these days…

You wonder why it’s looking a little chaotic in the camp here? Hmph. Well at least you can see properly if nothing else. Since you can see so well, you’ll be able to see I’m busy trying to avoid all these shards of glass on the ground, which is something you should be doing as well.

(If you pick up the brush that’s lying on the ground and sweep up the bits of glass, then maybe you’ll get to know what’s happened…)

Objectives: Pick up the brush that’s lying on the ground and sweep up the bits of glass, then talk to Professor Hayden.

What are you doing?!

______________

Tough, Tricky, and Terribly Taxing

professor_hayden

Rita! Have I taught you nothing?! Hmph!

Life should be TOUGH, TRICKY, and TERRIBLY TAXING. That’s how you know you’re alive. Coming here and sweeping up broken glass from the ground. Kids these days…

Instead you’re like some ray of sunshine, the kind you get dazzled by and it makes you go blind for a second so your eyes hurt and you fall over a rock. Hmph.

Since you’re here offering to help you may as well give me a hand cleaning up.

Chop chop! Get started!

Objectives: Help Professor Hayden to tidy up the camp.

Pick up the cauldron, and toppled work bench, then speak to Hayden again.

professor_hayden

Hmph… I hope you’re not expecting a thank you!

______________

Sleeping in the Cold and Rain…

professor_hayden

I’m not always grumpy, Rita! But when I am, I’m one hundred percent grump. Big difference.

What’s happened here at the camp you ask? Hmph.

Meh, it’s not really anything. I should have been studying my swamp cockroaches when Alberta jumped up and knocked the jar they were in. It fell and smashed and my little six-legged friends scurried away in every possible direction.

I tried to shoo away my little princess out of harm’s way but she got it into her head that she should help round up the cockroaches for me… I yelled at her to stop but then, well, she got mad at me… She knocked the rest of the jars over and ran away… She’ll be back soon though, I’m sure.

Hmph, I suppose I’ll just be sleeping in the cold tonight since the tent collapsed. We can at least hope it rains. If I’ve got no tent to sleep in, then I can at least try my best to live just like Diogenes. 

Hmph. You want to set up the tent again for Alberta’s sake? Hmph… Okay then.

So you know how to put up a tent, do you? Well, aren’t you the genius. Kids these days… Hmph.

Well, what exactly are you waiting for? Get going and set up the tent again!

Chop chop!

Objectives: Help Professor Hayden to set up the tent.

Fix Hayden’s tent before he goes trading his clothes for an old barrel…

professor_hayden

Hmph… Grateful? For what? Setting up a tent? Kids these days…

Quest completed

______________

I Call It Living!

professor_hayden

Hmph. So you think I’m grumpy all the time? Weeeelll… What can I say? Plenty of people seem to think that if you don’t like other people, laughter, and sunshine then you’re grumpy. I call it living! Like when people say that you should make a wish when you see a shooting star… Nonsense! When you see it in the sky, the star has already been dead for millions of years and wishes only end in disappointment.

So now there’s nothing left for you to do here. Hmph. Unless you’d like to stay and eat with me and Alberta?

Hmph. Light the fire then, or did you have some other way you thought we might cook the food?

Objectives: Help Professor Hayden to light the campfire.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Use the Zippo from your inventory to light the fire.

professor_hayden

I wonder where Alberta’s got to? She must be hungry!

Quest completed

______________

She’s a Little Long-sighted…

professor_hayden

ALBERTA?! PRINCESS! DINNERTIIIIME!

Hmph. Where’s that little angel got to?

We’ll have to wait before we eat, we need to find Alberta first. She shouldn’t be that far away, she usually stays nearby. She’s probably just a bit irritated and she’ll no doubt be sitting in a tree somewhere, sulking.

Hmph. Well, well. You’ll have to help me look for her if you don’t mind. You could ride to my house in Crescent Moon Village and see if she’s there. It wouldn’t surprise me if she was just sitting in front of the door, sulking. 

What are you waiting for? I shan’t be hugging you goodbye… If you want a hug, then you should go hug a cactus. Chop chop! Off you go and see if Alberta’s there in Crescent Moon Village.

Objectives: Check if Alberta ran off to Professor Hayden’s house in Crescent Moon Village.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 20 with Crescent Moon Village

Ride to his house and find that she is not at his house. Pamela Moonriver waves you down, and as you approach you see her garden and bees in chaos.

pamela_moonriver

Rita! It’s lucky you’re here!

Quest completed

______________

Raging Bees

pamela_moonriver

Sorry, what was that? You’re looking for Alberta?

Yeah, you just missed her. Have you seen the state she’s left the place in? I saw her in the garden here and told her not to mess around with the bees, but do you think she listened?!

It’s about time Hayden started raising that little madam properly. This time she’s gone too far, have you seen all this chaos everywhere?!

The bees are so angry that I don’t know if I even dare go near them to try and calm them down with sugar water.

You’ll give it a go, you say?

Whew! Thanks! Here, take this sugar water and set it out in the garden. Be careful though, when they’re as angry as this they’ll attack whatever gets in front of them.

Objectives: Set out some sugar water for the bees, and be careful not to get too close!

Rewards: 45 Jorvik Shillings, 30 XP

Reputation: 35 with Crescent Moon Village

Enter the garden on foot and place out the bowls of sugar water. Don’t get too close to the clouds of bees flying around or you will be chased from the garden. When you have set out all the bowls, return to Pamela.

pamela_moonriver

Oh no! That didn’t go too well! The sugar water doesn’t seem to have calmed down the bees at all! It’s just made them angrier!

Quest completed

______________

When Sugar Is Not Enough

pamela_moonriver

Rita!

We need to do something fast before someone’s seriously injured here in the village!

Great idea Rita! Professor Hayden’s the only one who can help us. Ride to him in the Mirror Marshes and tell him he needs to help us NOW!

Objectives: Get help from Professor Hayden in his camp in the Mirror Marshes.

It’s bee-pocalypse here in the village, help us, Hayden!

professor_hayden

ALBERTA?! SWEETIE PIE?! Where are you?

Rita, did you find Alberta?

Quest completed

______________

Once Upon a Time There Was A…

professor_hayden

Oh, so Pamela’s bees are angry? Hmph.

Rita, let me tell you a little story now that you’ve told me yours. Once upon a time there was a professor who had way more important things to think about than a few angry bees in some village he’s almost never in. 

Especially when his only family member has gone missing. In other words: I DO NOT CARE.

ALBERTA?! SWEETIE?! PRINCESS?! Where are you?

What? Pamela’s bees are angry because Alberta was scaring them? Complete nonsense. Again. I’ve already told Alberta quite clearly that she shouldn’t do that. She wouldn’t hurt a fly… Or… Hmph.

Yes, yes, I’ll help. Ugh. Not because of you or Pamela but for the lovely little bees. I don’t like the thought that they’re stressing themselves crazy like this. My sweet nectar mixture should hopefully help calm them down! Hmph.

Nothing in this life comes for free. It’s just as well you learn that now that if you want something in this life, you have to do it yourself. So you can mix up the nectar mixture. Stand here next to this table and follow my instructions. 

Objectives: Follow Professor Hayden’s instructions as you blend together his nectar mixture.

Rewards: 35 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 25 with Crescent Moon Village

Stand at the table and pick up and place items in the correct order according to Hayden’s instructions. Speak to him again once you’ve completed the mixture.

professor_hayden

Ah, so you got the nectar mixture together in the end… That was, well… Almost good. Hmph. It’ll do.

Quest completed

______________

I Stopped Listening

professor_hayden

Are you still talking about angry bees? I stopped listening ages ago.

Hmph. Don’t take this the wrong way, I don’t like you or anything, but just because it’s you, I’ll give you a hand with the next step. Hmph.

You’ve got the nectar mixture, right?

Right. Mix it up with the sugar water. Do it carefully though, otherwise it’ll spill and be a smelly mess instead.

Objectives: Pour the nectar mixture carefully into the sugar water.

Chop Chop!

professor_hayden

There you go, all done! Now you can take it back to Pamela. Hmph. I can promise this will settle down her badly brought-up bees. And she thinks Alberta’s spoiled?

What are you waiting for? Get on your way! Wasn’t there supposed to be some kind of hurry?

Chop chop!

Rita! And not a moment too soon! The bees are going crazy in the village, we need to do something NOW!

Quest completed

______________

No Time to Lose!

pamela_moonriver

Was Hayden able to help us? As you can see, the bees have gone insane! That darned Alberta! Grrr! When I get my hands on her, I’ll teach her a thing or two, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve told her not to aggravate my bees!

You’re right Rita! No time to be angry at Alberta now, not when we’re surrounded by chaos!

What? You think this sugar mixture will calm down the bees? How on earth are we going to give it to them?

What a clever idea Rita! I hadn’t thought we could put it in a spray bottle and spray the bees!

Are you sure you want to risk riding out and trying to calm them down?

Thanks! Take the spray bottle with you and spray the bees, we just have to hope it works and they calm down!

Objectives: Spray the sugar mixture onto the bees, then talk to Pamela.

I’m here to save you my citizens!

pamela_moonriver

Whew! That was close! Thank goodness it worked though, now the bees are calmer and buzzing happily around their hives in the garden.

Thanks for your help Rita!

______________

And the Peace Didn’t Last Long…

pamela_moonriver

Now perhaps we’ll get a bit of peace and quiet.

No, I’m sorry Rita, I’ve got no idea where Alberta went.

Oh, gosh! Did you her that Rita?!

______________

A Scream in the Streets…

pamela_moonriver

Sigh. Sounds like Kellie’s at it again…

Rita! You wouldn’t mind riding over and seeing how things are going with Kellie, would you? At least ask her to calm down a little?

HA!! If it’ll be dangerous? I can promise you, with Kellie it’s always a total disaster! Dangerous and deadly! Haha.

Thanks for going to check on her.

Do You Know How Close It Was?!

kellie

Do you know how close it was?! I only got away by an inch!

Waaaaaahhhh!!

Sniffle.

You want to know what happened?

It was that blasted Alberta again! She’s what happened!

I was just going to pet her. Sniffle. And from nowhere those fangs just appeared! Sniff. It was by the skin of my teeth that I didn’t get her teeth in my hand! Boohoo!

Where is she now? Sniffle.

I’m about to get bitten to death and you want to know where the little hairball is? Sniffle. What about me?! If you have to know, she ran behind that house where Mr Perch usually is.

Alberta flashes her fangs and you jump back. You think it best to speak to Pamela. She has a way with the buggos.

You’re back already? Did you find that little rascal Alberta?

Quest completed

______________

Many Things But Never Aggressive!

pamela_moonriver

WHAT?!

You say Alberta tried to attack you?! You must be kidding with me Rita?!

Well yes of course I believe you. Don’t get me wrong, but even if I don’t like her very much, I have to say I never thought she’d attack anyone.

Alberta’s always been naughty and gets up to so many shenanigans around here that it drives me crazy… She’s many things but she’s never been aggressive. 

You want what’s left of the sugar spray?

Of course, what do you need it for?

What a great idea! If it calmed down the bees, then perhaps it can calm Alberta down as well. Well, you can at least try giving some to her and see what happens…

Objectives: Take the sugar spray back to Alberta.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 10 with Crescent Moon Village

Return to where you left Alberta and find she’s disappeared.

Where’s Alberta now?! She was right here!

Quest completed

______________

She Can’t Be Far…

self

Alberta must have run away and hidden while you were at Pamela’s. You’ve got a feeling she can’t have gone that far away. Something feels very wrong, it’s best you try to find Alberta as soon as you can.

Objectives: Look for Alberta.

Rewards: 35 Jorvik Shillings, 30 XP

Reputation: 25 with Crescent Moon Village

Search areas around the village. Make sure to have the sugar spray at hand, for as soon as you find Alberta, you will have a limited time to spray her before she runs away again.

Big Yellow Eyes

alberta

Of Course You Shouldn’t Be Cold!

My little angel, where did you get to, hmm?

Huh? No, Alberta! It’s me! Why are you hissing and spitting like that?

Perhaps you’re just cold? My little sweetie, of course you shouldn’t be cold! Easy now, easy my little lovely. I’ll get you a blanket.

Oh, but if I’m to get you a blanket, I have to go over there, relax!

Hmph? You’ll grab the blanket, you say Rita? Hmph okay. It’s in my rucksack by the tent.

Nothing Wrong With Alberta!

professor_hayden

OUCH! Alberta! What are you doing?! I thought you wanted your blanket. Maybe you’re just thirsty? Or hungry? Or? Hmph!

What are you saying Rita? That there might be something wrong with Alberta?

Hmph! Just because she’s not in the mood for her blanket doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with her. Would you like a blanket over you in this heat? No, exactly.

Sweetie, don’t be afraid, I didn’t mean to raise my voice. You don’t need to have a blanket if you don’t want one, it’s fine. Would you like some food? Maybe I can make you some nice hot tea? Maybe we can go and look for frogs together! Would you like to look for some frogs, little princess?

Objectives: Talk to Professor Hayden.

Return to Professor Hayden tomorrow.
