My Little Sweetie

professor_hayden

ALBERTA!! Talk to me!! What is it, sweetness? Have you eaten too many flies? I told you not to eat too many all in one go! Have you hurt yourself climbing a tree?

Hmph. Rita?

What’s happened?

Alberta… She’s had stomach cramps all night long… I’ve tried everything but nothing seems to be helping. What if she’s sick? What if she… My little sweetie… My princess, tell me what’s wrong with you?

(Perhaps you could take a look at Alberta and see what might be wrong?)

Objectives: Examine Alberta then talk to Professor Hayden.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 10 with Crescent Moon Village

Dismount your horse and take a look at Alberta. You don’t seem to find anything wrong with her…

professor_hayden

Did you find anything? What were you expecting? Why would she tell you what was wrong and not me, hmm?

Sweetie’s Blanket

professor_hayden

Noooo!! Sweetness! Don’t cry! I’m here princess! Here’s your blanket, little one!

Rita, Alberta isn’t feeling well, so I think you should go.

Hmph. You’ve got an idea, you say?

If we should take Alberta to a vet?

Hmph. Well that wasn’t a stupid idea. Hmph.

Sweetie? What do you say? Shall we try going to Crescent Moon Village and seeing Camilla? Hey, hey, hey Alberta, easy now! No need to bite, I’m not going to pick you up. We can’t be here though, so maybe I need to go. Okay, okay, of course I won’t leave you, angel. I’ll stay with you right here. I promise, I won’t leave you. 

You want to ride and fetch the vet, you say? Hmph.

Ugh, you’re incredibly helpful, aren’t you? Hmph. Camilla Turnstone is the name you’re looking for in Crescent Moon Village. She knows Alberta well, we’ve been seeing her since she was little. If anyone knows what’s wrong, it’ll be her.

Objectives: Ride to the vet in Crescent Moon Village.

Hello there! Oh, take it easy, sweetheart! Breathe! Has something happened?

______________

The Chemist from Old Hillcrest

camilla_turnstone

How do you know something’s wrong? Little sweetheart, I’ve worded for many years as a chemist and a vet in what’s known today as Old Hillcrest… Of course I can tell if something’s happened…

Sorry, but who did you say you were?

Rita? Nice to meet you. My name’s Camilla Turnstone. What can I do for you, newest friend?

Objectives: Tell Camilla what’s happened.

Poor lovable Alberta is not herself!

camilla_turnstone

Oh no! That doesn’t sound good at all, Rita!

______________

Plants from The Cauldron

camilla_turnstone

That really does sound rather serious. Excellent that you managed to make it here so quickly! It could well be an abdominal aortic aneurysm, cholecystitis, or if we’re really out of luck it could be a mesenteric ischemia… Hmm…

Sorry, you don’t need to know what all of that means. I’ll hurry out to the Professor right away. 

Thanks, but I know where he camps in the swamps, so you don’t need to show me. If you’d like to help me though, you could ride to The Cauldron and gather seed pods from a Heliconiaceae plant. Or at least it belongs to that family of plants…

I’m sorry, in regular Jorvegian it’s called a green lobster-claw plant and it’s quite uncommon. I’ve only seen it growing in The Cauldron.

The plant can usually help ease most stomach and intestine problems, and I’m sure it can work for Alberta… At least until I find out what’s really wrong with her.

Could you ride to The Cauldron and gather the fruit from the green lobster-claw plant? It grows inside the seed pods.

Thanks Rita! I’ll meet you at Hayden’s camp soon. 

Objectives: Ride to The Cauldron and look for the green lobster-claw plant.

You can get into The Cauldron by first running up the side of the hill from the road between Crescent Moon Village and Stormgarden. Pass the Observatory at the top of the hill and ride along the slopes all the way down into The Cauldron at the bottom.

That must be the green lobster-claw plant Camilla was talking about.

The Green Lobster-Claw Plant

Camilla said I need to be extra careful when picking the seed pods from the plant.

(You get ready to pick the seed pods from the green lobster-claw plant.)

Collect seed pods from the plants growing around near the water. Suddenly you notice something in the cave…

self

There we go, that should be enough.

(You’re happy with your harvest and start to think about leaving when you hear a strange noise…)

Who’s There?

(You hear a sound from the cave… Should you take a closer look?)

A single pair of eyes shine from the cave…

Alberta? Is that you? What are you doing here?

Eyes in the Dark

(That’s definitely not Alberta… Your gut feeling tells you this is bad…)

Suddenly many eyes appear in the cave and tons of spiders come running out towards you! Time to make your escape!

Run the race back up the sides of The Cauldron. Avoid the spiders along the way or you will have to start over.

When you safely reach Stormgarden, you decide it’s best to return to Hayden and tell him everything.

camilla_turnstone

There you are! Thank goodness you made it! Did you get the seed pods?

What happened?! You look like you’ve seen a ghost!!

______________

Time to Hatch Some Eggs!

camilla_turnstone

Ohhh… I didn’t think of that. Silly me. It’s this time of year that the Jorvegian Giant Spiders come out to let their eggs hatch. They stay around The Cauldron because it’s nice and warm for them there.

Sorry for forgetting to mention that Rita. You got the seed pods anyway?

Hmm… I wonder…

Rita? Could you please feed some of the fruits from the seed pods to Alberta while I try to take a blood sample from her?

Objectives: Give the seed pods to Alberta then talk to Camilla.

Here princess, have some noms.

camilla_turnstone

There we are! Now I’ve got a blood sample from Alberta. It’ll not take long to get a result from this. If you just wait a short while, we’ll see if my suspicions are correct.

Quest completed

______________

A Positive Test

camilla_turnstone

Yep! Exactly as I thought. Rita, when you told me about the spiders at The Cauldron and about their eggs, I started to think perhaps Alberta wasn’t sick… And I was right! She’s expecting eggs.

Umm… Hayden? I’ve never seen you smile before, you look almost scary…

Haha!

I’d love to stay, but I need to get back now. I’ll be back later to check on Alberta. Make sure she gets plenty of food and rest now! It’s difficult to say when exactly she’ll be ready to lay her eggs.

Now I’ve really got to go. Lovely to meet you Rita!

Bye!

Rita! Don’t you get it? I’m going to be a granddad!!

Alberta, you’re going to be a mother! My little sweetie is all grown up!

Hmph. Of course. Byt the way. This isn’t a present, just in case you start getting ideas. It got delivered to my address by mistake and the young man in the post office wouldn’t let me return it. Kids these days…

Soon there were be lots of baby Albertas running around!

professor_hayden

There you go.

Yes, well it does rather seem as though Alberta likes you, Rita. Now she needs a little peace and quiet, but I’ll let you know when the eggs arrive.
