Money Lending and Other Sins IV Starting Location
Gwyn is working behind the Undertaker’s house on a coffin. Arthur suggests he should make another one for himself, if he can’t pay.
He says he can pay, but we would have to come to the church with him. He wants to steal the money; in particular a brooch from a recent grave.
Before he can do the dirty thing, Arthur has to clear the churchyard. The couple at the stairs have to be approached in a harsh way, while the lady at the grave will follow Arthurs nicer instructions.
Now, we have to guard the entrance to the churchyard. A lady can be persuaded to come by later, while two fellers only understand one language. Fist in the face.
Once they are down, check up on Gwyn and take the brooch. Better not think about the fact, how we and the gang earn our money.
The second target is Winton Holmes, a hunter camping north of Strawberry.
Of course, he is another “I don’t have the money on me, but…”-feller.
He saw a rare white cougar and ensures us that its pelt would be worth more than he owes.
Arthur agrees to go hunt for it together with Holmes.
Mount your horse and follow him until you have to enter a cave. Be sure to equip your lantern, as it is pitch-black in there.
When the way splits, Holmes suggests to split up as well. Shortly after taking the right path, we can hear some trouble on Holmes’ side.
Holmes was killed by the cougar – brilliant. Now we have to take him down on our own.
Because of the very limited light, you should watch your mini-map closely. Once a red dot appears, have your Dead Eye ready and pump a few bullets in it.
Skin the Cougar and head to the Butcher in Strawberry to sell the pelt for money.
To completely finish the mission, put the debt money/valuables back in the Camps Tithing Box the next time you come around there.
