Quest Troubleshooting

Have you started the Fairelands Quest: The House of Garland, 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 NPCs, it doesn’t say anything, it’s moved to London and just sends me postcards.
Locate SET UP button on the HUD. Click it, and then click RELOAD. It’s best to do this in non-laggy environment, for example home. This will not reset your Quest Progress.

MY WHOLE SCREEN WENT BLACK! WHAT DO I DO?
That’s 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.

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 local chat: there is a link that you can use to view the video outside SL.

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

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

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

ARE THERE ANY ARCHETYPES HIDDEN IN STORES?
No. The NPCs 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 ARCHETYPE IN ARDESSA?
No, the second part of the quest takes place completely in Ardessa, so there is no Archetype to be found in there.

DO I NEED TO VISIT ARCHETYPES IN CERTAIN ORDER?
No, any order is good! You can even just explore the Fairelands and shop, and talk with them as you run into them.

DO I NEED TO VISIT THE GATES IN ARDESSA IN CERTAIN ORDER?
No. You can visit the gates in any order, with one exception: that gate will tell you to find the others first.

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

CAN I DO THE QUEST AGAIN, START OVER FROM THE BEGINNING?
If for any reason you want to redo the quest, you need to contact Aisling Sinclair who can reset your progress on the Quest Server. Buying a new HUD will not reset anything, your progress is saved in the server and tied to your name/uuid, it is not saved in the HUD.
