My Time at Sandrock

The Show Must Go On

By
Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on how to complete the main quest, The Show Must Go On in My Time at Sandrock.

Before you can take on this quest, you’ll need to have completed Picking Up the Slack and also experienced your first sandstorm.

You and Mi-an need to rebuild the stage!

Stage Support or Stage Backdrop?

The next day after the sandstorm, Mi-an will greet you outside and ask you to follow her over to the stage outside of the Blue Moon Saloon.

When you arrive, Matilda and Owen, the owner of the Blue Moon Saloon, will explain that the stage has been trashed during the storm. You’ll then be given the option to decide to rebuild either the Stage Backdrop or the Stage Support.

Do you want to build the Stage Backdrop or Stage Support?

If you’re not sure which to pick, head over to our page on whether you should choose the Stage Support or Stage Backdrop. There’s no huge consequences to building either, except that the build themselves are different. It would seem that the Stage Support is the easier of the two builds, but not by a whole lot so it’s basically down to player preference.

Once you’ve chosen your desired build, Mi-an will opt to build the other. Before you can build your chosen part of the stage, you’ll need to first make a Bronze Pickhammer so you can recycle the old stage. The wood is tough and your current pickhammer just won’t do!

How to Make a Bronze Pickhammer

You can make a Bronze Pickhammer on your worktable without having to purchase any new recipes! Below, you’ll find a break down of the materials required:

Icon Material Amount

ItemDropScrewCopper.png Copper Screws x2
ItemWhetstone0.png Sharpening Stone x1

To make the Bronze Pickhammer, you’ll need x5 Bronze Bars, x2 Wooden Sticks, x2 Copper Screws and x1 Sharpening Stone. You can make a Bronze Pickhammer on the worktable, and you’ll need to have one to progress in the main quest, The Show Must Go On. You can make one before this quest if you want, though!

In total you’ll need the following resources to make the materials needed for the Bronze Pickhammer:

  • 18 Copper Ore ItemDropOreCopper.png - you could substitute some of the Copper Ore for Copper Scraps to make the Copper Bars if needed.
