Neither Here Nor There

erik

Sigh. I don’t have time for this. Where can it have gone?

Not here, and it wasn’t in the kitchen either.

Hmm…

Oh sorry! I didn’t see you. Hi Rita! Are you here again?

You’re wondering whether I lost something?

Well, I can’t find my computer. I have some documents on it that I was going to send, but now the computer seems to have vanished into thin air.

I beg your pardon Rita, I don’t want to bother you with my problems.

You’re saying you want to help me look for it?

Of course you can help me. Thanks a lot!

If you look for it out here in the yard, I’ll do another search inside the house.

The Harp Cafe – Just a Gallop Away

It looks as though someone used this computer recently.

When you look closer at the computer, you see that the website of The Harp Cafe is open. You can read the text “The Harp Cafe – Just a gallop away from Jorvik City Plaza!”

Perhaps someone is planning to go there?

Better take the computer back to Erik.

Hi there Rita! If you’re here for my surfing course, you’re a little early.

Wax Off

holly

Oh, you were going to see Madison? How nice of you! I think she would be delighted to see you. I know that she really wanted to meet up with you yesterday.

Hey listen, can I ask you a favor? Usually Madison likes helping me prepare for my surfing course, but right now I don’t know where my little sunbeam has gone.

Thanks a lot for wanting to help me out, Rita! I was frankly a little worried that I wouldn’t be finished in time. 

Could you start off by scrubbing the old wax off the surfboards?

Haha, you don’t have to worry. It’s not hard at all. Just make sure you get ride of all the old wax.

Objectives: Help Holly clean the surfboards.

Dismount your horse and use the scraper tool to clean the surfboards, then speak with Holly when you are finished.

holly

What a great job you’ve done, Rita!

Are you sure you haven’t done this before?

A Future in Surfing

holly

Hmm… It’s a bit strange that Madison isn’t here. She always wants to be home before I leave for my surfing courses, since I’m usually gone for a few days.

But I guess she’s just out playing with her horses somewhere. Haha, that kid is just full of imagination.

Do you have time to give me some more help? Oh, thanks! We should see if we can find a date that works for both of us, so I can teach you how to surf.

But now, back to work. Now that the boards are clean, we need to give them some fresh wax so our feet get a good grip.

 We’ll start off with the base wax. Just take this base wax and rub it carefully onto the boards – it’s going to look great!

Objectives: Help Holly apply the base wax to the surfboards.

Rewards: 50 Jorvik Shillings, 40 XP

Wax up the surfboards, then return to Holly.

holly

You’re a natural, Rita! You got the hang of it right away. Maybe I should hire you as my assistant sometime. Haha.

My Little Assistant

holly

Now that you’ve applied the base wax to the surfboards, we just need to give them a layer of top wax. Then they’ll be all ready for my surfing course.

Do you think you can manage that?

You just have to do exactly the same thing that you did with the base wax. You apply the top wax by rubbing it in nice small circles.

Objectives: Help Holly apply the top wax to the surfboards.

Finish the surfboard waxing, then speak to Holly.

Before the Course Starts

holly

Thanks for helping me out with everything, Rita!

Sorry, but I’ve got to get going. I have to be there when all my students arrive.

It’s pretty strange that Madison isn’t here… Maybe you can check with Erik when he has time, and see if he knows where she is?

I don’t think you need to worry. I’m sure nothing’s wrong, Madison’s probably just lost track of time while out playing somewhere.

But could you check with Erik anyway?

Thanks! See you later then, Rita! Bye!

A Safer Day with Jarl’s Insurances

jonas

Rita, sorry to interrupt you. But I have fantastic news! I’m going to get a new fishing boat! So Madison and I will be able to go fishing again soon. We’ll definitely avoid Cape Sorrow from now on, though. Ho ho!

Unfortunately it will take a while for the new fishing boat to arrive, but until then Jarl’s Insurances will lend me a temporary boat. I’m going off to get it today! I know Madison wanted to come along to Fort Pinta and watch the buses that pass through there. Ho ho! That kid is always up to some kind of game.

Right, back to that boat I’m about to get. It looks as though it’s really big. Not at all as cozy as a small fishing boat, but I’ll only be using it until my new one is ready.

Ho ho! Let me know if you need to travel across the water with a bunch of horses or friends. I can take you, which means I’ll have some use for this big boat from Jarl’s Insurances.

(growl)

Oops! That must have been my stomach. I haven’t eaten much today. Maybe I should make an omelet? Could you check the henhouse and see if there are any new eggs?

Objectives: See if there are any eggs in the henhouse.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Collect eggs from the henhouse, then return to Jonas.

Latest Seen After Dinner

Ho ho! I guess I’ve talked your ears off, going on about my boat! I suppose that’s not why you’re here?

Oh, so you’re looking for Madison?

Hmm… She should be here somewhere. As I told you, she wanted to come along to Fort Pinta and look at the buses or something.

But if you see her, let her know that we need to go soon, to get my boat.

I need to get started on my omelet. Have you talked to Erik? If anyone knows where my little mischief-maker is, it’s my son. Ho ho!

Sigrid Can Get Tickets

Was someone checking out a cafe outside the City Plaza, did you say?

Hmm… Perhaps I should start with “Hi,” or “Good day”?

Sorry Rita, but did you say something?

To the Top of the Lighthouse

You’re looking for Madison? She hasn’t been here since yesterday. Isn’t she at the farm?

I’m afraid you’ll have to ride back. But before you go, can I ask you a favor?

I must have slept in a bad position last night, because my back really hurts – otherwise I wouldn’t have asked you to help. But do you see the sack lying here? Could you help me carry it up to the top of the lighthouse? It’s pretty heavy, but I think you should manage it. 

Thanks! You only need to drag the sack up the stairs and I’ll take care of the rest. 

Objectives: Drag the heavy sack up to the top of the lighthouse.

Hi Rita! Sorry to keep you waiting. What was it you wanted?

You’re looking for Madison?

Oh! Have you checked with Sigrid, Jonas, and Holly? You should have asked me right away! I should think Madison is over there, with the pigs. We bought a new little pig that Madison absolutely adores.

Do you remember the man who pushed Madison into the water and took the horses?

I know who he is… Mr Anwir used to be a jockey. Probably at least twenty years ago… Eh… It’s been a long time…

Ehm… I heard these rumors that he… Eh… He… He started out in the business world with some kind of company… Ehm… They were doing something bad… Very bad…

Mr Anwir is a dangerous man, Rita… Ehm… You have to promise me to keep Madison away from him.

Mr Anwir… Eh… He isn’t afraid of consequences… Uhm… You have to be careful around that man.

Sorry. Mhm… Madison… Madison… She left me a letter that I found this morning…

Anyway… I think this… Eh… Newspaper might help us.

She was at my place yesterday and… Ehm… We were sitting and reading the newspaper together… Eh… There was this article about… Ehm… Ice cream, I think?

Eh…

Suddenly Madison looked startled and asked for the newspaper back… Eh… I didn’t understand then…

Ehm…

She said she needed to go home… Eh… At first I thought she wanted to be… Alone… I’m… Also… Ehm… Like that sometimes.

Anyhow, she ran away with the newspaper…

I wonder if… Eh… Madison found a clue in the newspaper?

Eh… What do you think Rita? Ehm… Do you think she found something?

You want to look in the newspaper? Eh… Okay…

Reputation: 25 with Hermit on the Heath

Read each page of the newspaper closely and select the answer at the bottom of the screen the points to the clues that Madison found. When you piece all the clues together, maybe you can figure out where Madison went.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Page 1

With it’s central position and beautiful building, you can’t call Cafe Harp anything but the heart of Aideen’s Plaza. Everyday it attracts all kinds of visitors, locals as well as tourists.

Recently the cafe owners made a brave decision when they chose to renew its already delicious menu. Apart from adding a few new pastries, you can also buy yummy ice cream from their little ice cream counter. I, Delores Staunton, reporter at The Jorvik Gazette, set off to try the new menu and to find out what the visitors thought of the changes. 

Clue found: The Harp Cafe

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Page 2

The visitors’ opinions varied more than expected. While some embraced the changes with open arms, other seemed tow ant the old and less varied menu back. One of the guests who wholeheartedly supported the new menu was Eijnar Alderson. He couldn’t wait to try out the new flavors. Something else that really mattered to him was how this was going to affect Leonardo’s. If the selection were to remain the same, or if Cafe Harp would offer new flavors which Leonardo’s doesn’t currently offer. 

However, among the guests who did not share Eijnar’s enthusiasm, was Mr Anwir, a not to chatty businessman. When he was given to opportunity to describe his feelings for the new menu at Cafe Harp, he chose the expression “Get lost!”.

Clue found: Mr Anwir

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Page 3

On the other hand, Mr Anwir’s friend, Carl Delman, was of a totally different opinion. When he was asked the same question, the answer was “I love ice cream! I’m going to eat ice cream here every day of the week!”.

After having been given the opportunity to talk to all these different, but generally happy ice cream enthusiasts, who had gathered to enjoy the new menu at Cafe Harp, it was finally my turn to try it.

Kudos goes to Cafe Harp’s ice cream, but Leonardo’s is still the place to visit if you want to eat ice cream, with Cafe Harp trailing not too far behind. So if you’re in town, you should definitely visit Cafe Harp and check out their new menu. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Clue found: Carl

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

When you have finished reading the newspaper, speak to the Hermit again.

Eh…

Ehm… This doesn’t sound good… Madison must have… Eh… Seen Mr Anwir and this other guy… Eh… Sorry, what did you say? You know who the other man is, that Carl guy?

Hmm… Eh… So they’ve taken a horse together before?

Eh… What’s that Rita? You thought of something?

EH! Is Madison’s grandfather taking her with him to Fort Pinta?!

Ehm… She must be up to something, Rita! We have to… Or you have to… Ehm… Stop her.

Eh… I can’t handle this…

You have to talk to her parents, or someone else… Eh… If we’re lucky they haven’t gone off yet… Ehm… You should talk to her dad… He might listen…

The Pirate Who Threw Her in the Water

Rita, I can assure you that Madison is quite alright.

My little girl may have more than her fair share of an imagination, but she wouldn’t run away to – sorry, why would she be running away?

To save that horse Nightdust, you say?

Sigh.

Rita, you shouldn’t let her get you mixed up in her games. Just recently she came home soaking wet, saying that a pirate had thrown her into the water when she was trying to  save her horse, Nightdust.

You see, Rita, we don’t have any horses on our farm, and Madison certainly doesn’t have a horse of her. She’s just making things up.

Of course I have a computer Rita, why are you even asking?

If you can show me something? Well… Sure, of course you can.

(If you show Erik that Madison was checking out The Harp Cafe from the newspaper, together with everything else, he might believe you.)

Where Madison is right now?

She just left with Jonas to take the ferry to Fort Pinta. Jonas is going to get his new boat from Jarl’s Insurances, and Madison wanted to look at some buses or something.

Wait – you don’t think she’s going to take the bus from Fort Pinta to Jorvik City?!
