Fatherhood and Other Dreams is an Optional Honor Story Mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. This Walkthrough shows how to complete this Mission. Playing it is required for the missable Lending a Hand trophy.
Quest Giver: Mary Linton
Region: Saint Denis
Requirements: having finished Angelo Bronte, a Man of Honor
After the mission, Angelo Bronte, a Man of Honor, we will receive another letter from Mary. It will be located in our room in Shady Belle.
Fatherhood and Other Dreams Starting Location
After reading the letter, we can meet Mary in a Hotel in Saint Denis. She asks us to help her to look for her father, which angers Arthur, because he hates him.
To actually play the mission, you do have to agree to help her!
Get on the horse and ride to the stables nearby, where Mary suspects him hanging around.
Mr. Gillis is indeed at said location and now we have to follow him through the streets and alleys to see, what he is up to.
This is quite simple – just don’t get too close.
Eventually, we can see him around a corner, selling a brooch to some guy. It was a family heirloom and Mary is pissed and confronts him. While these two argue, Arthur tries to catch up with the buyer.
A Gold Medal requirement is to take over and drive the carriage to a secluded spot within 1 minute and 45 seconds.
After jumping on the nearest horse, ride as fast as possible after the carriage. After heading over the bridge leading out of Saint Denis, the carriage will take a right turn – this is the first opportunity to come close enough to jump over and take control.
Once you are driving it, head to the marked spot in the middle of nowhere as fast as possible to meet the time requirement.
You can now beat the brooch out of the guy or pay for it. If you pay the full price of $ 100 right away, this will give a significant honor boost.
Once obtained, Arthur will automatically head back to Saint Denis.
