Trademaster, over here!
I've created a display for our treasures from the Book of Secrets!
This is beautiful work, Sita.
Thank you! You worked so hard to find them, I figured you'd want to show them off.
Aye, a fittin' tribute to our hard work, lass.
Trademaster! More good news! I've had a breakthrough with the Book of Secrets!
Have ye pried new secrets from the old dusty tome, Clara?
Partial secrets, Pike. The books says \"On island north with crescent shore, Greybeard's Eye...\"
Greybeards Eye'!? What be that?
Hold on, hold on! \"...Greybeard's Eye awaits. Find it quick or nevermore.\"
A crescent isle to the north...that be George's place!
This is an easy one! Meet me at George's!
Hush now, everyone! I just got George back to sleep...
Tired ol' sea dog, always fussin' with those novels of his...
Allegedly, aye.
I asked him about Greybeard's Eye.
And? Where is it?
That's the trick. The Ghost Ship Captain has it! He plucked it from the island, long before George arrived.
Well, what now?
We can trade for it, but first we need to collect Ghost Fish for George! Meet me back on the island!
Clara, I found one!
Wonderful, Finn! Now we just need 11 more.
What're these for again?
Well, we're going to trade them to George, and he'll make us some bait.
Bait to catch more fish?
No Finn, bait to catch crabs. Special crabs!
Ghostly crabs?
Precisely, dear boy! Now keep your eye out for more Ghost Fish!
Got another o' the rascals!
Well done, Captain! We're really filling up the bucket now!
Clara, did George have any clues 'bout Greybeard's Eye?
It was a powerful compass. Maybe even...magical.
I'm listening...
The Ghost Captain used to navigate using a Spectral Spyglass, but it was stolen.
So...the Ghost Captain took Greybeards Eye?
Exactly! So, if we can make him a new Spectral Spyglass...
He'll trade with us! Ah.. I see! Well, let's keep fishin'!
And that's eleven! Nearly done, Clara
Outstanding, Pike! We'll have a dozen Ghost Fish by nightfall!
What exactly are we tradin' for, lass?
We'll get bait from George, which we can use to catch Ghost Crabs.
Ghost crabs?! What value 'r they?
They have Ghost Pearls! With Ghost Pearls, we can make a Spectral Spyglass...
Aye, I see! And then we trade with the Ghost Captain!
Keep searchin', all!
Finn, I think you mean \"eureka\
old boy.
Er...Eureka! I found another one!
Ohh that's perfect! We have all the Ghost Fish we need now.
Now we can give these to George and he'll make us some Ghostly Crab bait!
I say, that does sound exciting. To George's!
Now we just hand our Ghost Fish off to George, and he'll fashion us some bait.
Do the honors, Trademaster?
Thank you, George!
It's... some stinky glowing chunks?
Sort of, lad. This'll be a sweet, sweet smell to those Ghost Crabs.
Where should we look?
They could be anywhere around the islands, Finn. Let's head for home!
Look! Look, Clara! A ghost crab!
That's tremendous, Finn!
The bait worked like a charm. And look at this Ghost Pearl!
Aye, lad. The Ghost Pearls are guarded by these spectral crabs. They love 'em!
Keep on searching, Trademaster. We need eleven more Ghost Pearls!
Clara! I found another Ghost Pearl!
And it's an excellent one, Keani! Beautiful!
What is Dreadbird going to do with these?
Well, we're going to split them with him -- that's the deal.
He'll take half the pearls and give us a recipe to construct the Spectral Spyglass we need.
Wonderful! Keep searching, everyone!
Here's another! That's eleven, right?
Yes it is, Wesley! One more to go!
I must say, these are hard to find. This Spectral Spyglass must be quite special.
Aye, it is lad. They only e'er made one, to my recollection.
If the Ghost Ship Captain sees we have one, Greybeard's Eye is as good as ours!
There it is! The final Ghostly Pearl!
Well done, everyone! Meet me at
Dreadbird's Fort!
Right behind ye, Clara!
Alright, now, my 'gull-speaking skills are a little rusty, but I think I've worked out a deal with Dreadbird.
Trademaster, if you would, please give our flying pirate friend the Ghost Pearls he requested.
That's it! The recipe is ours!
What now? Can ye read it?
Yes, yes, it looks straightforward enough.
We construct the Spectral Spyglass... at the Jeweler. To the island!
It's lovely... just look at the craftsmanship!
Can I look through it?!
Of course, Finn. But you won't see anything.
Aw... why not?
Only ghosts can see through the lens. A ghost can use this to circumnavigate the globe!
Aye, valuable to a ghost, but not to a person.
But Greybeard's Eye is different?
Aye, it is! Very different indeed!
We have one more stop, my friends.
To Ghost Ship Cove!
Friends, I've proposed our trade to the Ghost Ship Captain, and he has agreed!
Trademaster, if you could do the honors, please present our Spectral Spyglass to the captain.
Would you look at that... behold, Greybeard's Eye!
I ne'er thought these old eyes'd gaze upon that.
It's...a compass! But I've never seen one like this.
Nor I, lad! It be magical!
This could be how Greybeard found his treasures!
Let's bring it back to the old book, friends.
Aye! To the book!
Trademaster, if you please... Find the perfect spot to show off Greybeard's Eye!
Great work, everyone! I'm so proud of our adventuring crew.
What's this compass do, Clara?
There's a chapter of the book all about it, however...
Ye gotta translate it.
Precisely, and it'll take some time.
Take some time to smell the roses, lad. We'll be back to adventurin' soon enough!

...something about an island...and a cup? The {highlight:Sacred Chalice}! And it's hidden on Relic Ruins!
"Under stone, shrub or tree, hidden there, the old cup be." Grab your hammers and shears, Trademaster! The hunt begins on Relic Ruins"!
My archeology professor, Dr. Crowsteel would be so proud. Let's check the book again...
Don't be discouraged, Trademaster! Obtaining rare antiquities is a game of patience. Keep digging!
Are we even searching on the right island?
Yes, yes indeed, the book is clear! Keep searching!
Aww...I was sure we'd found it that time...
Don't give up, Trademaster! I can smell a treasure, and we're close.
The Chalice is here somewhere. Start clearing all the brush and stones you see!
You've done it! The Sacred Chalice! Let's consult the book again.
Trademaster! You've found the Book of Secrets!
Guarded by generations of pirate kings, the book contains directions to countless wonderful treasures!
...did ye say treasure?
Yes yes, settle down. Hmmm. This is all Greek to me... But luckily I speak Greek!

!!! Warning Spoiler !!! clic on "Show" to see dialogs =>

The next chapter speaks of an Antique Chest. "Chest of gold, with eagle's crest. Deep below, is where it rests."
Moles can sniff out gold!
Finn, that's perfect! Instruct the moles to start digging for gold!
Bah! Only gold this time...
Ha! Plain old gold not enough for you, Pike?!
Fortune 'n glory, kid. Fortune 'n glory. Keep diggin'!
More gold, Clara, but no sign o' that chest yet
Hey Clara, what does this chest have in it?
Nobody knows! The book says you shouldn't look inside. It bears a pirate curse!
I never would, obviously!
We're close! Me elbow always tingles when treasure's about. Send another mole down!
The Antique Chest is ours! Let's consult the book for our next clue.
Isn't it lovely? This truly belongs in a museum. And...wait a minute, somebody opened this. Finn!
I only peeked...
Ha! Some o' these pirate curses be more bark than bite.
Hmph. Well, let's see what other mysteries the book holds. Finn, you're on archeological probation.

Hmm. "This monkey's mind is crystal clear. Trade with ghosts, the skull appears."
Could this... speak o' the Crystal Monkey Skull?
It must! According to the text, if we trade with Ghost Ships, we should receive the famed Crystal Monkey Skull!
This is the finest artifact yet!
I love looking for treasure! Can we find more?
Let's check the book!
Ah, it's a Monkey Skull, but it's flawed. We need a flawless example. Keep trading, Trademaster!
Drat! Another flawed Skull. The book mentions only a handful of skulls, and only one is flawless. Stay at it, we're close!
There it is! The flawless Crystal Monkey Skull! Let's consult the book!
What d'ya see, Clara? More treasure?
These next passages will require more study. I'll get to work on my translation. Check back soon, Trademaster!
