Rustler Guy That Knows a Guy Dialogue
Buddy: We have to cross that damn bridge, guy. It’s the only way leading to the capitol and the Grand Tournament.
Guy: How do you want to do that? Only nobles have the right to cross it.
Buddy: I know a guy that knows a guy… He’s like a witch, he can fake any kind of document – even a nobility certificate.
Buddy: We could cross the bridge and win the grand tournament with that.
Guy: Gee, I bet nothing would go wrong…
Buddy: Oh, shut up, smartass. Just find John. He’s a bard, he’ll take you to the forger.
Buddy: Also, take a sword. And a shield. I have a feeling that you might need it when John is around.
*Complete Objective – ride to John the bard*
John: *singing* Imagine… There’s no heaven…
Crowd: Boooo! Shut the hell up, you heretic!

John: Oh, boy, I’m not having a good day.
Guy: That’s twice I saved your ass.
John: And that’s why I’ll take you to the forger. For a *hic* small fee.
Guy: Fee? You not getting a rock in the face is a fee!

Forger: Art is never cheap. But I see you are a resourceful, wise man. You’ll manage

John: Oh, and the priest – word is he’s looking for some well-paid help.
John: Not to mention that the *hic* loan shark might have some interesting gigs.
** Mission End **
Ride to John the bard.
John can be found inside the castle, in the very center. Singing a cover version of John Lennons popular song ‘Imagine’ before it’s even released! Thank god the medieval period was free from copyright laws.
Defend the bard with your shield
Position yourself between John the Bard and the aggressive crowd, shield raised. This will trigger an interaction between the two of you.
Defend the bard and defeat the peasants.
make sure to block enemy attacks as they come in. pulling back away from the enemies and take cheap pot shots at them as you pull back. When the enemies block trigger a heavy attack (hold the LMB down). There is a food spawn just south of the bard. once you have got the attention of the angry peasants. Their attention won’t generally revert back to the bard. So take as long as you need, grabbing the food after it respawns until all the enemies are dead.
Press E to hire bard John
… What are you waiting for? Run up to Bard John and press E to hire him!
Punch the bard or press F5 to change the song
Do one of the two… Choice is yours. However, before doing either of these. Head to one of the locations marked here –
upon doing changing the song. a chase will soon flare up. So you want to stand around at the marker until it does. I usually wait at the bottom left marker. That way I can get the other in one sweep of the city.
Ride to the forger.
Wait for it…
Lose the chase by taking off posters.
Again, as mentioned before. Stand on the bottom left marker, or the top right one before changing the bards song. And then head from their to the bottom right marker after the chase flares up.
Standing here will immediately tear down the first poster. Bottom left marker. I choose to do this on foot. but hug the middle of the road as to not lose the bard. Obviously dodging traffic.
Ride to the forger. Like, for real.
For real, head to the marker… top left.
