In this World Quest, the actors are Night Raven statues that need some help being placed on the stage. Your goal is to listen to the flow of the story and then choose an actor based on the hints provided by the cast (usually the Narrator). You can Listen to the monologue of each prospective actor to determine whether they’re fit for the role. Once you’ve made a choice, select Help the actor take the stage, then place them in the position marked by a spotlight on the stage.

The quest involves one Prologue, three Interludes, and one Finale. Each part is divided into two, and you need to watch both parts to consider the segment complete. Interact with the bulletin board beside the stage when you’re ready to start.

Prologue

Interact with the bulletin board and select Watch First Half to start. In the first half of the prologue, only one actor needs to be placed on stage, so you don’t need to choose from a group. You’ll be rewarded with a Common Chest for your effort.

After that, interact with the bulletin board again and select Watch Second Half. Reference the image above for the order by which to place the actors. Start with the leftmost Night Raven, then the rightmost, then the center. You’ll be rewarded with a Precious Chest upon completing the prologue.

Interlude #1
