The Good Life Guide: Side Quest “Mnemosyne has Forsaken me”
Rita Barrett, author of The Good Life has a request for you. This guide will help you solve Rita’s side quest Mnemosyne Has Forsaken me. Your help is needed as she can’t recall where she got the inspiration for one of her poems.
There are many quests in the Good Life. The main quests follow the main story. There are side quests like any RPG, but there are many. Side quests can be obtained from The Morning Bell (the newspaper Naomi Haywood writes for), via the PC. Requests can also be made by Rainy Woods residents. Most residents offer side quests. The tasks can vary. You will usually need to talk to someone, collect some items or take photos. Rita Barrett’s “Mnemosyne has Forsaken me” is an example of a side quest.
She is a poet and can often be found behind the counter at the town hall. Although she has recently written a poem she cannot remember the inspiration or whereabouts. She asks you to take a picture of the subject she was inspired by and use the poem as a clue. Although it is a difficult poem to understand, once you do, it becomes very simple. This guide will help you to solve Rita’s poem if you are as stumped as Rita.
HOW TO START THE Mnemosyne Has Forsaken Me SIDE QUEST
This task can be found at the beginning of the game. You must first locate Rita Barrett in order to start the side quest “Mnemosyne Has Forsaken me”. She can be found in Rainy Woods. Rita wears a green hat, a green-and-red outfit, and has long ginger locks. She is usually found behind the counter at the town hall. You will notice a green exclamation point next to her name, and portrait when you approach her. This indicates that she has a task in store for you.
Rita will share her story about her poem, and how she doesn’t know where or what inspired it. You are asked to take a picture of the subject that inspired Rita. After speaking with Rita, you can either accept the quest immediately or leave it later. You can complete the side quest by activating it from the quest menu.
Rita will read the poem aloud to you to help you find what you are looking for. The side quest will let you see a portion of the poem, but not the whole poem. Here’s the full poem:
HOW TO SOLVE RITA’S POEM and WHAT YOU NEED TO DO PHOTOGRAPH
This task can seem daunting at first. To decipher Rita’s poem, you will need to photograph the correct subject and then show it back to her. Rita’s poem is all you have. She mentions that Rita was in Rainy Woods at the time she wrote the poem. Rainy Woods is the best place to find what you are looking for. It’s not so easy. Rainy Woods is not huge, but there are many things in the town that could be the subject of the poem. This is a difficult one and easy to get lost in.
First, open the world map. You should make sure Rita’s side quest, “Mnemosyne Hath Forsaken me”, is active. Rainy Woods is located in the middle. All marked buildings, businesses, and facilities should be visible. You can see the name of the building by hovering the cursor above it. You will find a place called “Happy Scones.” It is located on the corner near Mushroom & Evans, and the post office. Although it might seem hard to spot, if you pay attention, you will see a small green circle that fades in and out above Happy Scones. Side quests are associated with the green circle. The highlighted area indicates where you should look for that quest. The green circle in this example is telling you that Happy Scones is your destination.
It’s not easy to find what you are looking for once you get there. You have been helped by the game, which has shown you Happy Scones. Now you need to identify what inspired her and take a photograph of it. But what are you searching for?
Take a look at Happy Scones’ roof. A weathervane and a cockerel should be visible. This is Rita’s inspiration!
What is the relationship between the weathervane and the poem? Let’s look at it again. The cockerel is a steel-winged bird …” “Resisting wind …” refers to the weathervane. “Waving on two lonely wings” refers to the roof it is sitting on. It’s easy once you figure it out.
It’s easy to find the weathervane. Let’s take a look at the second line. “Searching for a Star in Solemnity …” When will stars appear?” Of course, at night! You must not only photograph the weather but also take photos at night. It doesn’t matter if it is clear or raining. The photo will not be affected by any of these conditions. The photo can be taken in any weather conditions, including rain or shine. When you are taking a photo of the weathervane, ensure that you can clearly see its name as the camera is focused.
