QUESTS:Edit

QUEST: Dark Age SageEdit

Ms. Emma: Mr. Carson said he wished there was a gadget that could freeze a moment in time. Has no one here learned of photography?

If I build a daguerreotype photo wagon, I can guide this canyon out of the dark ages and into the light of a camera!

Search for a location to build the wagon.

Tap the Canyon to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 2
Clean off the debris.

Tap the area to Clear.

Clock med: 04:00:00
Ms. Emma: I didn't expect to find these wagon wheels here. Throughout history, unexpected findings have often led to innovation!
QUEST COMPLETE!
“Let bygones be wagons.”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25


QUEST: Daguerreo ScenarioEdit

Ms. Emma: Camera photography dates back to the 1820s. Nicéphore Niépce and Louis Daguerre created an early photographic process.

Poor Niepce passed, and Daguerre formed the daguerreotype process. We need a base for a wagon fitting Daguerre's vision!

Explore the Canyon for a wood platform.

Tap the Canyon to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 3
Gather the wood platform.

Tap the Wood Platform to Collect.

Clock med: 03:00:00
Carson: I'm curious what this will amount to, pard. I reckon Daguerre is one of them eccentric genius types. I don't trust him.
QUEST COMPLETE!
“Carson has a skeptical plat-titude toward photography.”

QUEST: Heavy BevyEdit

Ms. Emma: Oh dear, this wood is heavier than my estimation of it. I lift textbooks, not weights, you see. Help me lift it, friend!
Upgrade the daguerreotype wagon.

Tap the Daguerreotype Wagon to Upgrade.

Clock med: 02:00:00
Ms. Emma: This would make Daguerre ever so proud, friend! Like you, Daguerre was persistent.

Niépce abandoned the use of silver compounds in photography, but Daguerre later used them to achieve light-fast images!

QUEST COMPLETE!
“Wood'nt you want to have Ms. Emma's brain for a day?”

QUEST: Caravan PlanEdit

Ms. Emma: Did you know that Daguerre took the earliest known photograph of a person in 1838 on a simple Paris street? How quaint!

Photographers must be able to travel to the perfect subject. Speaking of which, we need lumber for the top of our wagon!

Explore the Canyon for light lumber.

Tap the Canyon to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 2
Gather the light lumber.

Tap the Light Lumber to Collect.

Clock med: 03:00:00
Ruby Mae: I may not be in fancy Paris, but Ms. Emma has me dreamin' that I could be a photo snapper like that Daguerre one day ...

I would snap photos of my Norma if that child could sit still for longer than the bat of my lashes!

QUEST COMPLETE!
“For inventors, success is never a Daguerre-ntee.”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25


QUEST: Funny MoneyEdit

Ms. Emma: Did Daguerre strike it rich? Well, the French government acquired his invention and paid him a lifetime pension.

The Daguerreotype was released into the world, just like our wagon will be soon! Help me attach the top to its platform?

Upgrade the daguerreotype wagon.

Tap the Daguerreotype Wagon to Upgrade.

Clock med: 08:00:00
Gus: That's an upstandin' wagon, but you mean t'say that lily-livered Daguerre did all that sodbustin' fer a measly pension!

I would've asked fer a pair o' gold teeth! Course, with my rare genius, s'only a matter of time before I strike gold ...

QUEST COMPLETE!
“For richer, for poorer, Gus never changes his ways.”

QUEST: Precise DeviceEdit

Ms. Emma: Even the finest daguerreotype wagon won't serve us much benefit if we don't have a camera to photograph with.

Alexander Wolcott's daguerreotype camera was the first photographic camera. Let's check the mine for this lost treasure.

Search the Old Mine for a camera.

Tap the Old Mine to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 1 - 3
Gather the camera.

Tap the Camera to Collect.

Carson: Blazes, all this while that camera's been hidin' like a beetle in the bush! But I doubt the dog gone gadgit even works!
QUEST COMPLETE!
“Camera-nd take a photograph with me.”

QUEST: Grand StandEdit

Ms. Emma: A traditional daguerreotype camera stands on a tripod and uses plates that must be polished and carried with great care!

Help me place the camera on a stand next to the wagon, friend!

Upgrade the daguerreotype wagon.

Tap the Daguerreotype Wagon to Upgrade.

Clock med: 02:00:00
Gus: If I didn't know any better I'd say those silver plates git more special treatment than a cattle baron's baby, by vum!
QUEST COMPLETE!
“The camera said to the tripod, "Don't just stand there!"”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25


QUEST: Still ThrillEdit

Ms. Emma: The daguerreotype camera reduced a subject's sitting time from thirty minutes to five minutes.

All the more reason to find a subject that can sit still. Perhaps books? I'm ever so fond of them ... if you can't tell.

Search the Old Mine for books.

Tap the Old Mine to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 1 - 3
Gather Daguerre's books.

Tap the Daguerre's Books to Collect.

Ms. Emma: Stupendous! Can it be that I have my hands the works of Daguerre himself? I shall never wash my hands again!
QUEST COMPLETE!
“Book who showed up!”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25


QUEST: Setup GetupEdit

Ms. Emma: It is paramount that any photographic subject be placed in close enough proximity to the camera to afford a clear image.

Let's place these books in sight of the camera!

Upgrade the daguerreotype wagon.

Tap the Daguerreotype Wagon to Upgrade.

Clock med: 06:00:00
Ruby Mae: Land sakes, I'm more excited than a squirrel up a honey-drenched acorn tree to see this gadget in action!
QUEST COMPLETE!
“Emma's in a pile of trouble if she can't take this photo!”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25


QUEST: Photo LottoEdit

Ms. Emma: I am overcome by nerves! Time has elapsed since I last photographed, but I will proceed with diligence for my students!

Let's remove the cap from the camera lens. This will begin the exposure and create the image on the plate...

Take a photograph!

Tap the Daguerreotype Wagon to Harvest. (1x)

2 Gold med to skip
Carson: Well I'll be dipped in buttermilk and bread crumbs! Ya sure them ain't the real livin' books ya done captured Ms. Emma?

I was up the wayside creek doubtin' ya! I reckon photography's a thing of magic, like yer teachin'!

QUEST COMPLETE!
“Ms. Emma's photography lesson was picture perfect.”
