Look, if there was a lowborn guy, named guy
and he would be the toughest medieval motherfucker
makin’ trouble with his homie buddies,
would you wanna hear his story?
or just kick some ass yo
his head is bold eyes are red
he’s always staring
he never speaks a lot to others
always weighing his words
and he doesn’t give a sheep
He’s quick to kick you to the curb
What a lowborn peasant
Makin his own presents
but it might go on pleasant
so watch for his very Presence
Make haste my friends
better give him a quest
He’s a rustler that’s a fact
So robbing’s what he does best

** Mission End**
Easy enough to do, do as he instructed in the dialogue, hit any of the keyboard’s WASD keys.
The bottle can be found just south of the starting location. follow the guidance arrow towards the bottle with the green aura.
The easiest way to beat the peasant up is to counter his punches. When he starts his flurry of punches. Hold in the right mouse button just before he strikes. You will then get an attack of opportunity as you parry him away.
Alternatively, whilst he is blocking. Simply run up to him and hold in the left mouse button to launch a heavy attack, which will penetrate through his guard and knock him to the floor
The horse can be found at the south east point of the village, as indicated via the map and waypoint. Simply head on over to it and press ‘F’. To mount… Not to pay respects…
As instructed, press M to show the map and head on over to the flag. You can also follow the yellow guidance arrow for this. Though the guidance arrow shows the direct route. leading you through obstacles and ignoring impassable walls.
If you took damage in the previous fight, I’d recommend taking the pie before setting out on the next objective. This will recover your health. Be aware of the fighting guys. If they hit you they will hurt. You can also wait for the fight to finish to take the dropped gold from the loser.
Once this is done, head on up to the objective indicated in the picture by the yellow circle.
Head out to the east, just outside the castle walls you will find a small residential area where the Inn is located. as marked on the map.
The moment you jump on the horse the medieval police will be a hootin’ and tootin’ so make sure you are ready for the chase to the Pimp a horse – Which is indicated by the paintbrush on the map. and at the south of the image. I’d advise moving onto the next stage of the guide before jumping on the horse so that you know the route to take as the paintbrush is currently in the incorrect place on the map. (Think it’s a bug)
*Tip – On Rustler, Weapons can be found scattered around the map. Alternatively, they can be looted from bodies.
follow this route into the pimp a horse, stick to the road, but watch out for horses, horse and carts and police along the route. Watch for the arrow changing to a more westerly direction to establish which junction to turn off at. alternatively, just remember that it is the 2nd left turn where it forks off in 2 seperate directions.
The building is in the middle, simply ride your horse into the barn and you’d of shaken the police.
Follow the road to the north and then left, simples…
ride the horse into the building and it will initiate a cut scene.
Your home is just to the east of where you speak to Buddy. You can head straight east. no need to hit the road. You will need to speak to your mom who is indicated by a green circle.
Just head south from your mom’s location and press F to jump on the Plowing cart.
press E and do laps of the field until Guy has had enough. (Usually 1 and a bit laps does it.)
Again, just head back to to point that you spoke to your mom moments prior.
Congratulations on completing your first quest! now press K to open up your skills menu and spend your points!
