Quest Journal #5 – Cool Ranch – Part I

The World Of Western Critters

Welcome to western world of Cool Ranch. With big open skies and a lot of friendly folk. You’ll find a fair number of Chickens, Roosters, Turkeys, Ducks, Horses, Bulls, Frogerales and More! Each willing to help you out on your quests. And they’ll be asking for a little of your help too.

But don’t forget you’re coming to find Merriweather Clark and another piece of Marco Pollo’s map. But Clark has gone missing. Probably the work of the Armada. Watch your back and be on the look out for anyone who might be able to help you in this Big Sky country!

There are two parts to Cool Ranch the way I see it. Both are pretty long and involved. The first part ends when you take on the Duck of Death and defeat him. That gets you closer to the map, but you still need information about Captain Blood and what he has done with it. And that continues in Cool Ranch Part II.

This is a HUGE area so expect on spending some time here. when you think you’re moving on, you’ll open some new areas and still be fighting. Continue reading
