A shovel that Asher finds in the Time Valley causes him to get stuck in a time loop. When he suddenly disappears in the present, Old Man Martyn requests the player's help to prevent Asher from dying in the past.

Stage 1[]

» Talk to Asher near Time Valley at [-449, 72, -1153].



  • Asher: Well well well, look who decided to come back with their tail between their legs.
  • Asher: Two weeks now and you still haven't found it? Ugh, I can't believe I ever trusted you with such a simple task.
  • Asher: Who am I? WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHO AM I? You offered to help find my shovel, and I've been waiting two weeks!
  • Asher: Forget about your payment. Unless you either pay me back or get my shovel right now!
  • Asher: My shovel? That's why I sent you out in the first place! It's somewhere in Time Valley. I lost it while looking for purple flowers to the west.
  • Asher: I think it was south west of the large ruined gate. Now go get it!

Stage 2[]

  • Asher: Well hello there, stranger! Welcome to Time Valley! Always nice to see a new face around here.
  • Asher: Mad at you? Why would I be mad at you? We've never met.
  • Asher: I know this a bit forward, but I need to ask for your help with-
  • Asher: Wait, is that-? It is! You've found my shovel! I recognize those markings anywhere.
  • Asher: But why is it so rusty? Ah, no matter. Give that to me and I'll head inside to get you a nice reward.
  • [-1 Rusty Shovel]
  • Asher: Thank you. Now, about that reward-
  • Asher: Wha- What's happening?
  • Old Man Martyn: Oh dear, there he goes again. Poor fool ignored my warnings and touched that shovel.
  • Old Man Martyn: He's gone and got himself stuck in a loop.
  • Old Man Martyn: Head inside, soldier, and I'll explain what's happening here.

Stage 4[]

» Enter Asher's house.

  • Old Man Martyn: Without Asher, his house has vanished from time.

Stage 5[]

» Talk to Old Man Martyn.



  • Old Man Martyn: Let me explain why Asher disappeared...
  • Old Man Martyn: Time Valley was built many years ago by a long-lost civilization.
  • Old Man Martyn: They had odd powers. They ended up distorting time itself.
  • Old Man Martyn: The tools they used to make these structures are imbued with their power.
  • Old Man Martyn: Asher found one of these tools: the shovel.
  • Old Man Martyn: The shovel is tethering its time of influence to today. It keeps sending Asher back.
  • Old Man Martyn: The issue is, Asher died in the past. This creates a paradox.
  • Old Man Martyn: We can save him if I send you back to prevent his death. Go through this rift to join him in the past.

Stage 6[]

» Find a way to save Asher from his death.



  • Asher: Huh? Where is everyone?
  • Asher: Usually this place is filled with workers.
  • Asher: But no one's here. And this place is clearly not done.
  • Asher: Whatever the case, I should probably find my shovel.
  • Asher: If I were a shovel, where would I be?
  • Asher: Hmmm. Not around here.
  • Asher: This place... There's so much going on but no one here.
  • Asher: What I don't understand, though, is why this place looks brand new.
  • Asher: This place looks like it's just being built!
  • Asher: This must be something to do with the valley's magic. Wouldn't be the first time.
  • Asher: Heh, time.
  • Asher: In fact, whenever I hold that shovel, this kind of stuff seems to happen.
  • Asher: Maybe it's sent me way back. Back to the construction of this place.
  • Asher: Then why is no one here?
  • Asher: Woah, that tree looks like it might fall over!
  • Asher: That was a close one!
  • Asher: Uhf! How do they have a cannon? These guys must be super advanced.
  • Asher: I think I'm close now. I can just feel that shovel close by.
If Asher dies from the crane:


  • Asher: Wait, what's that-?
  • Old Man Martyn: My my, a crushing defeat to be sure. You'll have to find a way to stop that.
  • Old Man Martyn: Go back through the rift and make sure Asher doesn't become a pancake this time.

Climb onto the building at the right side of Asher's path, using the golden pressure plates to boost yourself up. Then, right-click the button at the top at [-3983, 107, 1324] to deactivate the crane.

If Asher dies from explosives:


  • Asher: Wait, what's that-?
  • Old Man Martyn: Well that was quite the explosive end to our friend there. There must be a way to prevent that.
  • Old Man Martyn: Head back in there. This time with less explosions.
Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers relating to How to save Asher from the explosives.

After saving him from the crane, climb down to the next button at [-4005, 79, 1307] to override the explosives.

If Asher dies from the cosmic event:


  • Old Man Martyn: Oh, so close on that try. Who could've guessed that was how our friend met his end?
  • Old Man Martyn: I'm sure you'll nail it this time. Not sure how you will stop a cosmic event, though.

  • Asher: Oh there it is! My shovel!
  • Asher: I'm surprised it took me back this far this time.
  • Asher: Well, time to head on back-
  • Asher: Wait, Martyn?

Martyn will walk up and punch Asher.

  • Asher: Ow! What was that for?
  • Old Man Martyn: Asher, you remember when I allowed you to live in the valley, I told you not to touch any odd objects.
  • Asher: I... Might recall it.
  • Old Man Martyn: You got yourself stuck hundreds of years ago. If it wasn't for this guard, you'd be removed from existence.
  • Asher: Oh... So that's where I am. I am so sorry Martyn. Please don't kick me out of the valley.
  • Old Man Martyn: I know time travel can be tempting. But it's far more dangerous than you can ever understand.
  • Old Man Martyn: The valley is banned for most citizens. I watch over this timeline because of poor souls like Asher.

Stage 7[]

» Listen to Old Man Martyn.



  • Asher: Holy Bovine!
  • Old Man Martyn: Ah, we're back.
  • Asher: How did you get these powers? Are you even human?
  • Old Man Martyn: Oh you know. I've read a book or two in my time.
  • Old Man Martyn: <playername>, I'm sorry I got you dragged into this. I wish I could have done it myself.
  • Asher: I probably could have gotten myself out...
  • Old Man Martyn: You died in the past. Multiple times.
  • Asher: I did?
  • Old Man Martyn: Yes. In some surprising ways too.
  • Old Man Martyn: <playername>, I'm sure we will meet again... in time.
  • Old Man Martyn: See you around.
  • Asher: Uh, you're still here.
  • Old Man Martyn: Am I?

Martyn will suddenly vanish.

  • Asher: I don't understand Martyn. He seems to know everything about the past. Here, come closer, I want to whisper something.

Stage 8[]

» Talk to Asher.



  • Asher: I think he might have known Bob. I saw some letters in his house.
  • Asher: Weird, right? Bob was a hard guy to know.
  • Asher: Anyway, take this. It's the least I can do to pay you for saving me.


  • This quest was added in the 1.18 Economy Update and replaced Suspended Flowers.
  • In the past version of Time Valley, there is a sign near the cannon that reads, "WARNING COSMIC EVENT INBOUND. ALL OLM EVACUATE." This likely means Time Valley was built by The Olm.
  • Old Man Martyn is named after the youtuber InTheLittleWood, whose real name is Martyn.
