Dark Brethren is the fourth Tall Tale in the A Pirate's Life Arc. The Tale Book can be voted for at the Castaway's Camp on any Outpost. The Tall Tale can be cancelled by voting at the Ship's Voyage Table.
This Tall Tale must be completed in order to access the fifth Tall Tale, Lords of the Sea.
So, you travelled to the Sea of the Damned, walked its shores and found one who was lost in him own past…
Not many can walk beyond the veil that way.
The things they see steal away their minds forever…
'Til they even forget that them dead…
But Davy Jones will not forget how you stood in him way.
Nor will him forgive the Siren Queen for failing him. He—
Wait-- we are not alone…
You know you cannot hide from me, Jack Sparrow!
Uh, I wasn't hiding! I was… eavesdropping. Vastly difference pastimes.
There him stand… Another pirate who's twice come back from the land of the dead.
Who escaped the raid on Isla Tesoro and even found the Fountain of Youth…
Oi! Have you been gossiping about me with this… this strange, book-obsessed individual?
Whatever they've told you, it's not true.
Unless it's flattering, in which case it's all true but they left out the best bits.
The man who stole the only trinket that can reach Davy Jones… A pendant, twin to the one Jones himself possesses.
How can you know all this? That pendant—
Belongs to me.
You can't be…
Aye, this time it was the sea what brought you back to me, Jack.
(Calypso magically removes her "Castaway" disguise)
Tia Dalma! Uh, Calypso!
Shouldn't you… be floating on a cloud, or bubbles, or whatever it is sea goddesses do?
And while I'm asking the questions, am I alive or am I not?
The Sea of Thieves is haunting place. It bestows many gifts, even upon the dead.
That is why I followed the Black Pearl here. To protect these sacred waters from Davy Jones and that which follow him.
That is all the answers I have. Now you must listen…
Davy Jones know that the pirates of this world threaten him plans.
So, him summonin' his own dark version of a Brethren Court, made of those cruel and corrupted souls who long to rule the Sea of Thieves.
If him succeed, him power will be greater than ever before.
This is why I love running into old friends. They always have such cheery news.
But if Jones is inviting his friends for tea, that means we know where to find him, and, by the by, my Treasure.
You speak the truth. And since you still hold the key to his fortress, with my sketches you can find your way inside.
Think of what you want most, Jack Sparrow. It will show you the way.
Right. Well, given that these are unfamiliar waters, and I lack a ship with which to sail upon them, critical decision must be made.
You will always remember this as the day your crew was joined… by Captain Jack Sparrow!
Now I know that's a great honour to bestow upon a humble vessel such as yours, but don't you worry – I promise you won't be an imposition.
Tia Dalma, about that Treasure. If it was entrusted to Davy Jones, that can only mean--
Hush! There are some truths not ready to be told.
Their time will come when the deed is done. Now make sail, witty Jack, and be swift!
Oh. Well then… See you aboard!
The Court Convenes
Upon entering the meeting room of the Dark Brethren, Wanda, Davy Jones, Duke and The Gold Hoarder can he seen holding a meeting. As long as you don't move in too close, their dialogue can be played in full.
Well, Jones? The Dark Brethren have heeded your call, and now I'm sure we're all curious to learn why we were summoned.
Was your dalliance with the Siren Queen not all you dreamed it might be?
PAH! The Sirens are loyal to me as long as I can summon their precious "daughter".
However, they cannot guard my Lock if pirates sail free and interfere without consequence!
That is why I have sought new orders...
Oh-ho? The legendary Davy Jones is now in service to another?
Tell us, who might this fearsome individual be?
The blaggard who absconded with my heart...
Now - this Dark Brethren court has formed, and our strength will control the seas once and for all.
Flameheart was blinded by his own rage and obsessed with killing.
Control of these waters is not about slaughter of our enemies. It's about what happens next...
You're talking about the Ferryman...
Aye, with the power of the Treasure I possess and the full force of the Dark Brethren at my side,
we finally have might enough to destroy his vessel.
And you'll be his replacement?
I most certainly will, Warsmith. And only those pirates who swear an oath to the Brethren will return from my vessel!
We'll command every pirate on the Sea of Thieves... Ah, but that's only the beginning on the Captain's plans...
And those who follow orders will be duly rewarded.
As I promised, Gold Hoarder. 882 gold coins of immeasurable value... the Aztec Gold of Cortes!
Payment in full for obedience.
Cor... tes... Cursed...
Aye, by a treasure bathed in blood.
The Aztecs delivered these coins to Cortes in exchange for their lives, but his conquests continued.
Now, any mortal who takes so as a single coin will be punished for all eternity.
You yourself have paid the price to such greed before.
Where... is Cap'n...
That is not your concern. Once we've secured this world for the Brethren, he'll sail to us.
Now, the preparations are complete. It's time to bridge the worlds and take our rightful places as Lords of the Sea!

My Darkest Hour
Found after entering the first door into the Coral Fortress. The journal is amongst some wreckage to the right, as you pass through the door.
