Grounded Until 35

No, no, no. Where’s the wallet… That’s right! Cellphone! I mustn’t forget to bring it with me!

Rita!! I can’t talk right now, I have a ferry to catch.

What happened? Madison is gone! She disappeared when she and Jonas were in Fort Pinta yesterday. I’m sorry I didn’t take you more seriously Rita. Sorry.

But now I have to try and find Madison. I hope nothing has happened to her. She should have known better than to run away from Jonas like that. When I find her, I will make sure she is grounded until she’s 35!

You want to help me look for Madison, you say Rita?

Thanks! I appreciate it. But we will talk more about this later. I have to leave now. I’ll go ahead and we can meet up later at the mall. 

See you there!

Objectives: Meet up with Erik at the mall.

Take the ferry back to Fort Pinta, then catch the bus to the Jorvik City Plaza.

MADISON?! MADISON?!

Where on earth is that child?

Quest completed

______________

We Probably Shouldn’t Interfere

MADISON?! MADISON?!

Rita, where do you think Madison could have gone? Jonas said he last saw Madison sitting at the bus stop when the bus to the mall arrived. When he checked again to see where Madison was, she was gone, so she must have taken the bus here. But where could she have gone then?

Would you say you have any idea of who may have seen Madison?

The janitor there? Hmm… He doesn’t look like he’s in the best mood. I think we should probably not disturb him. 

I see! Well you know him, so that changes everything. Let’s go talk to him.

Objectives: Ask the Janitor if he has seen Madison.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 10 with Jorvik City Plaza

As always the Janitor is upset with careless people messing up his clean floors. He might not have been paying attention to wayward children but it can’t hurt to ask.

Bah! People really have no manners these days!

I hope you haven’t come here because James sent you about something, because right now I need to clean up this mess.

Quest completed

______________

Without Wiping Shoes and Without Saying Thanks

As you can see Rita, I have a lot to do, but tell me what I can do for you today.

Objectives: Help the Janitor clean up the soda.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 15 with Jorvik City Plaza

Erik tells the Janitor about missing Madison.

I’m sorry to disturb you, but you haven’t seen my daughter by any chances?

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

Your daughter? Do I look like a babysitter? I have a job to do here, you know.

See this mess? There is soda all over the floor! And this is the kind of stuff I have to clean up, all because young people today have no manners. I’ll give you an example – I had just finished cleaning the floor when a small girl with big headphones came rushing in. She didn’t even wipe her shoes off and she wanted help to find a bus. Without even saying thank you, she rushed off and spilled a lot of soda.

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

Large headphones? Did she have brown hair and a pink dress?

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

Hmph! You bet she did. I hope she didn’t spill soda on you as well. But now I must clean this up.

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

That must have been Madison! Do you know which bus she took?

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

Bah! I don’t have time to check which buses the kids get on. Not when I have so much to clean up.

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

Rita, what should we do? It must have been Madison that the Janitor saw.

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

If you helped the Janitor clean up, maybe he would be in a better mood?

Use the rag from your inventory to wipe up all the spilled soda, then speak to the Janitor again.

Huh? Have you already cleaned everything up?

The Bus to Aideen’s Plaza

Yes, yes, I will help you and your friend, Rita. The girl you are looking for went to Aideen’s Plaza.

Tell Erik that it’s off to Aideen’s Plaza!

Thank you so much for your help!

Come on Rita, we should get going right now!

Board the bus to Aideen’s Plaza and meet Erik at the southern entrance to the main square.

Okay! The Janitor said Madison came here. Where should we start looking? Of course, she could be anywhere in the city!

Quest completed

______________

The Cafe from Jorvik Gazette

Rita, please say that you think she is alright. Why would she run away? She will definitely not be getting any Saturday candy for the next five years. 

Do you mean you have an idea of where we can start looking for Madison, Rita?

Do you say you recognize the cafe over there?

Yes, you’re right, of course! That is the coffee shop you showed me in the Jorvik Gazette!

It seems like a good place to start looking, hopefully, maybe someone there has seen her. Come on let’s go there.

Objectives: Go to the cafe.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Search around the front of the cafe until you find Madison’s game set on the ground behind the car parked nearby.

You know it’s going to be a great episode when someone ends up locked in the trunk of a car…

Madison?! What are you doing in there? Come out from there, NOW!

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

I was going to save Nightdust! And when I got here to the square, I saw that stupid man’s friend who was in the newspaper too.

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

I don’t care what you are doing in the car, it’s not yours. So get out of there NOW! Otherwise, you will be grounded for… Well, a long time.

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

I can’t. I crawled into the trunk because that’s what they always do on TV. I was going to follow Nightdust’s kidnappers so I could save him. But somehow the trunk was deadlocked and now I can’t get out. Please help me! I can’t get out and it’s so dark in here.

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

Take it easy, we’ll get you out. We will have to go and find the owner. Did you see where he went before you broke into the trunk, Madison?

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

Nooo! You can’t talk to him, because he’s a horsenapper! I even found evidence to prove it when he went into the cafe! He is a horsenapper!

Rita, I know you believe me! The stupid man who kidnapped Nightdust, his friend is inside the coffee shop. He must not find out that we’re onto them and Nightdust’s whereabouts.

______________

Do You Want to Try? 

Madison, we’ll get to all that later!

Rita, we have to try and get Madison out now.

Hmm… It feels like the cover is on very tight, I don’t think I can get it open.

Did you say you want to try?

Objectives: Try to unlock the trunk.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Reputation: 10 with South Hoof

Try to unlock the trunk but it doesn’t open.

No luck for you either? What are we going to do Rita? We have to get Madison out of the trunk!

Quest completed

______________

I Don’t Like the Idea but I’m Counting on You

Rita, I don’t like that Madison has broken into a strange man’s car at all and normally it would just be best to try to find the owner and apologize…

Don’t you think we should do that?

Madison’s wild imagination of a “horsenapper” is hardly believable? Or… How did I miss that?! There’s a risk he might try to sue us for unlawful entry into the car, or libel… This is bad, this is really bad. What should I do? Nope, the best thing is probably to just walk in and hope for the best. Apologize, and then I’m going to make Madison apologize. 

Otherwise, she will have to live on brussel sprout pudding and fish balls for the rest of the year.

Rita, do you have an idea?

Will you enter the coffee shop and distract the car owner? While I try to open the trunk?

Okay… I don’t know if I like this idea Rita, but I’m counting on your. I’ll try to get Madison out while you keep the owner of the car in the cafe busy. 

Objectives: Keep Carl inside the cafe.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 10 with South Hoof

Go inside the cafe, and immediately Carl rudely confuses you for a waitress, but this is the perfect distraction, so no need to correct him.

Hey you! Yes you! Where’s my ice cream? I’ve been waiting for ages!

The Worst Service in a Long Time

(You recognize the man in front of you, it’s Carl. It must be Carl’s car that Madison has broken into. This is NOT good.)

You look very familiar… Hmm… What is your name?

But it doesn’t matter, do you work here or what? You must do?

I have been waiting for ice cream for a really long time now. I have to confess that the service today is the worst I’ve seen in a long time. A duck could serve me faster than you. 

What are you standing there for? Off you go. I’m a customer and the customer is always right. So make me an ice cream or I will make sure your boss finds out what a bad job you are doing!

(The best thing you can do to keep Carl there is to make him an ice cream. You’d better improvise!)

Objectives: Get Carl some ice cream.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with South Hoof

First, some real life advice from the sage Maggie: The customer is NOT always right. In any job, don’t allow people to treat you worse than dirt. Don’t be afraid to politely stand your ground. If the customer threatens to leave because you won’t kiss up to their rude attitude, kindly point them to the door. Your dignity and self worth is worth more than the few dollars they might spend at your store. If need be, bring a manager in to help you. If the manager won’t stand up for you, then that’s not a job you want to be working!

Back in Jorvik, head over to the ice cream cooler and scoop out the color ice cream the Carl tells you he wants.

Nom, nom, nom, nom!

Even though you are a lazy worker, you sure know how to make ice cream.

An Elephant Never Forgets!

What did you say your name was anyway? Or maybe you didn’t say? You look very familiar. As if we have really met before.

Hmm… You don’t work for Mr Anwir, do you? Haha.

You say you do not have a clue, hmm. There’s something fishy about you, I’m like an elephant when it comes to memory. I always remember a face, and I know that you and I have met before.

I’ll remember where we met before, but until then you might as well start doing some good. After all, you are just standing there like a fool. Come on, you must have lots of work to do. 

Objectives: Listen to Erik.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 5 with South Hoof

Speak to Erik inside the cafe to see if he has managed to open the trunk while you distracted Carl.

Rita! It’s really not working, I’ve tried but the trunk must be deadlocked. It’s impossible to open. We’ll never be able to get Madison out without a key. 

Quest completed

______________

An Idea is Formed

Rita, I think it’s best if we just talk to him. Did you say his name was Carl? Why are we whispering?

Do you have any idea of how to get Madison out of Carl’s car?

Do you mean we need a soda for it? If you go get the soda I can pay for it.

(If you could distract Carl, maybe you could get hold of his car keys to save Madison… But the first step is to get some soda.)

Objectives: Get the soda and return to Erik.

Rewards: 15 Jorvik Shillings, 10 XP

Pick up a can of soda from the counter and bring it back to Erik.

Sorry Rita, but I don’t understand how the soda is going to help us get Madison out of the car.

______________

A Distracting Drink

I get it! The soda will help us distract Carl and buy us some more time? I don’t know if it will work but I’m counting on you Rita.

Fool! Do you work here too, or what? Everyone at this place is hopeless. Like the girl who took ages to get me my ice cream.

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

I’m so sorry. I wanted to buy you a soda.

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

Now you have the chance to pinch Carl’s car keys so you can help Madison get out of the trunk of the car. 

Take the keys from Carl and go outside and rescue Madison.

Rita! What is going on? Please tell me that you can help me get out of here.

Wait a minute… Why would you bring me a soda?

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

Oh… The soda? Didn’t you want the soda?

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

I never ordered a soda…

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

Ha… Ha… Um… Maybe I got it wrong then.

Try to open the trunk again.

Wait… There’s something fishy going on… That girl you were here with… What is her name?

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

Do you mean Rita?

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

Rita… Of course I remember that girl… Hmpf.

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

Butter… who?

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

Where is that girl? The one who was with you? She was here only a moment ago?

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

Uh…

Try one more time to open the trunk.

OUT OF THE WAY!

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

Are you sure you don’t want to stay here a while longer?

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

Get out of my sight!

On your last attempt to open the trunk, it works. Madison hops out and just in time as Carl comes stomping out of the cafe.

I’m free! Thank you Rita. You have no idea how happy I am.

Phew! Thank heavens you got me out! Here comes that stupid man.

Madison is still on a mission to save Nightdust!

NO! I won’t! I won’t go home until I’ve saved Nightdust!

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

Madison! Pay attention! We’re going home and that’s it. You can bet that you will be grounded for many years to  come. Do you get how worried I’ve been? Do you get how worried your grandfather has been? He was beside himself when he came home from Fort Pinta and you were gone. 

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

Sorry… I am sorry. But, but…

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

No buts, we are going home now.

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

But you’re not listening! That stupid man has my horse! He had the transmitters in his car and even that stupid suitcase. I swear that if you open it, you will find out everything we need to know. 

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

Madison? What suitcase? Don’t tell me you took a suitcase?

Quest completed

______________

The Stupid Man’s Suitcase

This suitcase. It was in the stupid man’s car, along with the transmitters. I thought we needed some kind of evidence.

Rita, I couldn’t open it. Can you try? If we manage to open the case, maybe we can find out where Nightdust and the other horses are.

Erik does not seem thrilled with this idea.

Wait a minute now. You can’t just open someone else’s suitcase!

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

But how else will we find out where Nightdust is?

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

Madison, enough! We’re not going to open that suitcase. Instead we must try to get hold of Carl to apologize and return the suitcase.

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

I’m not going to apologize.

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

Stop arguing now Madison, Carl doesn’t have your horse. He’s probably just an ordinary businessman.

You Should Always Do the Right Thing

Rita, thank you again for all your help today. But it has been a long day and I think both Madison and I need a rest. I am going to try to find a hotel where we can check in.

Make sure you get some rest now, but before you go, take this as a thank you for all your help with finding Madison today.
