Have you started the Fairelands Quest: The Lair of Lantoris, but feel stuck? Do you have questions? We have answers! 

HOW DO I START THE QUEST?
Purchase a Hunt HUD from any of the landing points. For example here in Fairelands Junction.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REGULAR AND DELUXE HUDS?
The HUDs are exactly the same, but Deluxe Edition includes fancy outfits from Silvan Moon Designs so you can adventure in style!

I JUST STARTED, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Read the notecard in the package! This will be extremely helpful and get you on your way.

THE HUD ISN’T WORKING! It doesn’t register the ingredients I’ve found, it doesn’t say anything, it’s moved to London and just sends me postcards.
Locate SETUP button on the HUD. Click it, and then click RESET HUD. Sometimes it’s best to do this in non-laggy environment — home, for example. This will not reset your Quest progress.

Buying a new HUD will not reset anything, your progress is saved in the Quest server and tied to your UUID, it is not saved in the HUD.

MY WHOLE SCREEN WENT BLACK! WHAT DO I DO?
That’s the Unweaver’s work! First try a relog: not in the Fairelands, go home or somewhere else less busy. If that doesn’t fix the issue, contact Aisling Sinclair or Wolf Hartnell.

CAN I DETACH MY HUD OR LOG OUT WITHOUT LOSING PROGRESS?
Yes. No need to do the quest in one go.

THE VIDEO DOESN’T SHOW, WHAT DO I DO?
Check the blue box in the top right corner of your screen: there is a link that you can use to view the video outside SL, in Vimeo.

WHERE IS THE BARD QUEEN?
Somewhere in Fairelands Junction. There are no other NPCs or ingredients in Junction.

WHERE IS THE PROFESSOR?
If you can’t see him at first, there’s a reason. He doesn’t actually “join” you until you meet him in person (how could he, after all?). So while you may have attached her to your shoulder when you started your Quest, he’ll be invisible until you have a chat with him. If you’re looking for him, the HUD has some hints for you.

IS THERE ONLY ONE INGREDIENT PER SIM?
Yes. No Faireland hosts two: once you’ve found one, you can move on to another sim.

ARE THERE ANY INGREDIENTS HIDDEN IN STORES?
No. The Quest characters are not paid until the Faire is over, and the Fairelands Merchants Union side-eyes them too much to let them in until that.

IS THERE AN INGREDIENT IN THORNFAST?
No, the second part of the quest takes place completely in Thornfast, so there is no ingredient to be found in there.

DO I NEED TO FIND THINGS IN CERTAIN ORDER?
First, find the Bard Queen. She’ll send you to find the professor. After that, any order is good! You can even just explore the Fairelands and shop as you look for the ingredients.

DO I NEED TO BUY ANOTHER HUD TO DO CHAPTER 2 OF THE QUEST?
No, your existing HUDs will be replaced. Get the free update from a separate clickable vendor next to any of the Quest HUD vendors and read the Update Instructions.

DO I NEED TO VISIT THE CHARACTERS IN THORNFAST IN CERTAIN ORDER?
Yes. Planty or the characters you meet will tell you whom to go see next.

I AM IN THORNFAST AND I AM STUCK!
If you get stuck, select Setup on the HUD and then Reset HUD. In many cases this will trigger the dialog you need to go through. Be patient, sometimes it’s slow.

MERMAIDS ARE GIVING ME TROUBLE!
You will get thrown out of the water unless you are casting the right spell. There’s a “trigger” a little way in front of the mermaids building. If you have the task to “Find” them then you you need that. When you do that, the task becomes “Speak to …” nd you walk right up to them. Do that and you should move on. Remember the Setup menu and Reset HUD if they don’t respond, that should retrigger it.

DRAGONS ARE GIVING ME TROUBLE!
There’s a right combination of spells you need to get past them. If you are stuck on “We made it in” then Setup > Reset HUD from the hud menu. You should get the dialog come up.

I’M IN THE CASTLE AND STUCK ON “GATHER YOURSELF”!
If you are stuck on “Gather Yourself” then Setup > Reset HUD from the hud menu. You should get the dialog come up.

CAN I SEE THE VIDEOS AGAIN?
Yes. You can view the videos any time from the History menu in your HUD, or receive a transcript of the videos on notecard.

CAN I DO THE QUEST AGAIN, START OVER FROM THE BEGINNING?
Yes, and it’s easy. If for any reason you want to redo the quest, just click Setup, then Restart Quest. This will delete all your quest progress and take you back to the beginning.
