Preparing for a Little Adventure

jonas

Hello there Rita. Nice to see you! What brings you this way today?

Everything’s just fine here! Business is improving fast now that other people can get here easily. Actually, now I come to think of it, there’s one thing that’s not quite right. Since the boat sank, we’ve not been able to enjoy all the delicious fruits of the sea!

You wonder why I don’t just fish from the land instead of on the boat? Hmm. Yeah, I suppose I could, especially since it’s been forever since I was able to offer the family some really tasty seafood… We’re so lucky down here in South Hoof, the fishing is so excellent. It’s the perfect environment to hose a wide range of sea life, and you can even fish for crayfish and oysters right there on the beach. Oh, Sigrid really loves oysters. 

You think we could do something about it and try our fishing luck? Right then! Let’s do just that! Go take a look in the box just here to see if we’ve got any crayfish traps left.

Objectives: Fetch Jonas’ crayfish traps then return to him.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 15 with South Hoof

Go into the storage shed near the house and find the basket traps, then return to Jonas.

jonas

Looks like you found the crayfish traps!

______________

To the Sea!

jonas

Perfect, Rita! Now we’ve got all the crayfish traps and they’re even looking in pretty good shape, which is lucky! Now all that’s left to do is head to the beach so we can set them up.

You’ll give me a lift so we can set them up together? Sounds like a fine idea, I won’t need to make that long trip on foot! I’ll show you where we can set up the traps when we get there.

One more thing… Here on South Hoof, we spit three times in the water when we set up crayfish traps. It’s mostly superstition, but it’s said to bring good luck and a good catch, hehe!

Objectives: Ride with Jonas to the beach outside the harbor and set up crayfish traps in the water.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 20 with South Hoof

Ride down to the ferry station and turn right onto the beach to get to where the crayfish are. When you get to the fishing area, ride out into the shallow water and place all of the traps down.

jonas

That’ll be just great.

On a New Adventure with Jonas!

jonas

You handled the setup of those crayfish traps like a true fisher! Great work! Now it’s just down to patience and a little bit of luck.

You’re wondering if we can go collect oysters in the meantime? Absolutely! We need a couple of things before we can go gathering oysters. I think I’ve got all we need at the harbor so we can head over there. 

Objectives: Ride to the harbor with Jonas.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 15 with South Hoof

Return to the ferry station area with Jonas.

jonas

Right. Good.

Quest completed

______________

Misplaced…

jonas

This place always makes me happy and calm. Can you feel the wind on your face? Close your eyes and listen to the chatter of the seagulls, what a glorious sound…

What? You think it sounds like I miss being out at sea since my boat sank?

No, no, no. I’m just as happy on land as a fish in water… Heh.

Ah well, there should be a couple of knives nearby which are perfect for cutting oysters loose from the seabed. Without the knives, there’s no point even trying to gather oysters.

Wonder where I put them though? Can you see them anywhere?

Objectives: Fetch the knives that should be somewhere around the harbor.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 15 with South Hoof

The knives are on a pile near the stairs to the ferry station. Return to Jonas when you have found them.

jonas

Ah there they were! Good that you brought your eyes with you.

Quest completed

______________

Where Did They Go?

jonas

Now we’re equipped with good knives, we’ll also need a good bucket to keep the oysters in. There should be a couple of blue buckets around here somewhere that I used to take out with me on the boat, but they don’t seem to be here… I use them for other stuff too so I suppose they could be pretty much anywhere.

You’ll have a ride around and look for them? I like your enthusiasm! I’ll stay here and hold the fort in the meantime!

Objectives: Go looking for the two blue buckets. Sounds like they’ve been left at the roadside on the way up to the village.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 15 with South Hoof

The buckets are laying on the side of the road; you should have passed them on your way to speak to Jonas at the farm. Return to him when you have found the buckets.

jonas

Wow! You found them, I’m impressed!

______________

A Ride Along the Beach

jonas

Right! Good. We’ve got all we need to be able to gather oysters. Let’s go to the beach, that’s where Jorvik’s best oysters are to be found. I’ll lead the way!

Objectives: Ride with Jonas to the beach where the oysters are – just a short distance from the harbor.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 15 with South Hoof

Ride the opposite direction on the beach from where you set the crayfish traps. The oyster beds are a short distance away from the harbor.

jonas

Here we are!

Quest completed

______________

Peace and Quiet with Jonas

jonas

All we’ve got to do is get started and gather oysters from the seabed. Use the knife I gave you to cut them loose.

Objectives: Collect the oysters from the seabed using the knife you found.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 15 with South Hoof

Dismount your horse and use the knife to collect oysters, then return to Jonas.

jonas

What’s that you say? You think it’s going too slowly to collect oysters?

Quest completed

______________

Quiet Time is Over

jonas

So you think it takes ages to collect oysters. Right! Good. I’ve shown you how to do it, so I suppose it’s down to proving whether you know exactly what you’re doing with a little race to see who can get oysters the fastest. Umm, shall we say seven each?

Right! Good. The first one to get seven oysters will be named South Hoof’s oyster master!

Objectives: Beat Jonas in a race to see who can pick up seven oysters in the shortest time.

Rewards: 20 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 35 with South Hoof

Thus begins the race!

The quest may be difficult if you play on a laptop track pad. A mouse and good keyboard skills are recommended. 

Race to each oyster bed and use the knife to pick up seven oysters before Jonas does. If he collects them all before you do, you will lose and have to try the quest over again.

jonas

Wow, that was fast! I never thought you’d be able to beat me. After all, I’ve raced against my granddaughter Madison a few times and she’s never beat me yet! Heehee!

Quest completed

______________

The Winner!

jonas

Now I officially leave over to you the title of South Hoof Oyster Master! What an incredible technique you’ve learned in such a short time!

We’ve gathered so many oysters that we’ll have a great supply for ages! I might even need to sell some since we got so many. In any case, they’ll need to be washed and we’ll need to bait the crayfish traps before we’re done for the day.

Hmm? You’ll give me a ride down to the harbor so that I can wash the oysters while you bait the crayfish traps? Sounds like a plan to me! Let’s go!

Objectives: Leave Jonas at the harbor.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 15 with South Hoof

Return to the ferry station with Jonas.

jonas

My most humble thanks for the ride, master!

Quest completed

______________

Lucky Crayfishing!

jonas

We’ve still got to see if we’ve managed to snap up any crayfish. Ride out and check the traps!

Objectives: Ride over to the crayfish traps you set up with Jonas earlier and check if you’ve caught any crayfish.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 25 with South Hoof

Ride out to where you set the traps, check each of them, then return to Jonas with your catch.

jonas

Greetings to you, South Hoof Oyster Master. Heehee! Did we get any crayfish?

Quest completed

______________

Thanks for a Nice Day!

jonas

Woooow! We’ve been lucky little fishers today! It’s been a long time since I’ve had such luck with fishing, perhaps you’re a lucky charm?!

Objectives: Jonas give you a gift to say thanks for helping him out.

Rewards: 40 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP, Blue Sea Shirt

Reputation: 40 with South Hoof

It was my pleasure, sir.

jonas

You’ve done a great day’s work Rita. Now the whole family can enjoy these delicious gifts of the sea again. Thanks for all your help and your great company!
