Hello,

tested the Help with the harvest task today and found some bugs which have to be solved before the quest can be released.

* You can't push a hay cart onto another one infront of the barn which doesn't let you finish the task
* Carts will not be cleared to their starting position before the map is fully empty from players, which might bring problems up in relation to possible campers on that map
* Eheneumniranin should give a better quest entry sentence which explains more about what the player has to do e.g. describing the barn place better (there are several ones on the map). Maybe the barn can also get a sign saying "Karl's barn" for a better guidance
* No sounds while pushing hay carts
* Empty quest log, no information given
* Quest is at all not testable due to the not being able to finish problem at the moment

Greetings

    * You can't push a hay cart onto another one infront of the barn which doesn't let you finish the task --> There are two targets.
    * Carts will not be cleared to their starting position before the map is fully empty from players, which might bring problems up in relation to possible campers on that map --> I will implement a chat action to reset the blocks on demand.
    * Sounds are off on purpose, because the default scratching sound would not fit.
    * Quest log is weird, I will inspect that in more detail.

    Nothing appears in quest log if you reject quest.

    I'll set the assign thingy open again. Seems like other people than me are working on the quest too and it would be double work if I step in with something else now.

    Fixes:

    * cart positons marked infront of the barn
    * barn has a shield with its name now
    * positions infront of barn are having descriptions now instead of unidentified places
    * Eheneumniranin gives more information around quest now
    * Quest log filled
    * quest finishable

    Quest will be deactivated for next release, fixes are commited now (map change on the ground infront of barn, quest changes, ados.txt changes for adding a sign on the barn, removing task message on Eheneumniranins old normal NPC dialogue)

    Fixes are done by AntumDeluge and Bluelads4

    A possible solution for carts/blocks resetting is rather than wait until the map is empty, put a timer on each cart/block. Once the block is moved the timer starts. If the block is not moved again before the timer runs out it resets itself to its original position.

    Timer implemented, as the missing sound (default sound would not fit) is there on purpose, I will close the bug report then.

    Suggestions for grammar fixes:

    CHANGE FROM: You can easily move these carts by pushing them...
    TO: You can easily move those carts by pushing them...

    FROM: It has a huge shield on which tells you that its his.
    TO: It is marked by a huge sign with his name.

    FROM: This is really nice.
    TO: That is really nice.

    Other suggested changes:

    FROM: I was getting tired of bringing the two carts with straw to Karl.
    TO: I was getting tired of bringing carts to Karl.

    FROM: Please push two stray carts to Karl's barn...
    TO: Please push two straw carts to Karl's barn... (OR: Please push to hay carts to Karl's barn...)
