|Legend of the Veil|
Legend of the Veil is an Athena's Fortune Voyage exclusively available to Pirate Legends from the Pirate Lord in the Athena's Fortune Hideout. Over the course of this three-chapter Voyage, players will meet the Pirate Lord and help him uncover the Veil Stones that belong to the Veil of the Ancients.
The first two chapters of the Legend of the Veil will always be random, with some chapters being puzzle-oriented whereas others are combat-oriented.
The final chapter will always be the same, with a huge green tornado indicating the location of a central Ghost Garrison surrounded by three Ghost Garrison emplacements to destroy.
Chapters 1 and 2 (random type)
Chapters featuring Haunted Islands will direct players to an island shrouded in a sickly green fog. Upon arriving, crews will encounter Belle, who requests the player's help in locating a Veil Stone. When spoken to, she will provide an Enchanted Lantern that will reveal ghostly Ancient statues. Light the one next to her to reveal shining beacons and ghostly shock waves to indicate the location of the others around the island.
Upon lighting the last statue, a final statue surrounded by Ancients and located by beacon and shock wave becomes available for lighting. Upon lighting, players, with the help of the Ancients, will need to take on party of Phantoms, finishing off with a Soulflame Captain who drops a variety of Athena's Fortune Treasure on defeat. After defeating the Soulflame Captain, the Ancient Priest awards players with the Veil Stone.
Chapters featuring Lying Maps provide a map of the Island containing the Veil Stone drawn by Sudds, but with no marker indicating where it is buried. Instead, a number of symbols corresponding to the numerous drawings created by The Ancients on the island are marked on the map. However, one of the symbols on the map is incorrect, with the Veil Stone's location belonging to the location marked by the incorrect symbol.
Chapters featuring Pictorial Maps provide several sketches drawn by Sudds of the island containing the Veil Stone, including one sketch with an icon indicating the exact location of the buried Veil Stone itself. With no traditional map provided, the identification of landmarks and other points of interest within the available sketches are critical for identifying both the island and exact location of the Veil Stone.
Chapters featuring Shipwreck Graveyards will require players to locate and dive into a cluster of shipwrecks to find a Veil Stone as well as various other treasure items. Various elements on the ship such as windows and bookshelves can be interacted with to potentially reveal hidden treasure items. One of these objects will contain Grim Fortune's Key that unlocks the Grim Fortune's cabin containing the Veil Stone.
You can use the Ship's Log aboard the Grim's Fortune to find the name of the ship containing the Grim Fortune's Key, or alternatively the key can be located by searching through each ship individually.
Chapters featuring Zoom Maps are identical to traditional X-Marks-The-Spot treasure maps, but only feature a zoomed-in portion of the island around the buried Veil Stone. As such, the locations on Zoom Maps are significantly harder to identify and will require either a high level of map knowledge or intense scouring of the Map Table to locate.
Unlike the first two chapters, the final chapter will always be the same, with players sieging three Ghost Garrison emplacements defended by multiple Ghost Ships. A huge green tornado protects a central Ghost Garrison, which will become exposed once all three Ghost Garrison emplacements have been destroyed using the ship's cannons.
Once exposed, players will need to fire upon each vulnerable, glowing part of the central Ghost Garrison. Once all weak points have been destroyed, the storm and defending Ghost Ships will retreat, leaving the bulk of the Voyage's treasure accessible on the, now destroyed, central Garrison.
Once completed, the entrance to the central Ghost Garrison at the end of the final chapter accommodates the bulk of the Voyage's treasure:
- 1 Chest of Legends
- 1 Ancient Chest containing:
- 3 Athena's Fortune Treasures
- 3 Chests of the Damned
- 4 Skulls of the Damned
- 3 Ashes of the Damned
Beginning chapter one
It's good to see you! The quest you're about to embark on isn't about gold or even glory, it's about protecting the life we hold dear!
This is the Veil of the Ancients. It holds the power to open a permanent doorway to the Sea of the Damned.
With this power, the boundary between our Sea of Thieves and the Sea of the Damned is no more and memories can become real.
However, to use this power the Veil must be reunited with three stones that were taken from it, long ago.
There are others seeking the stones, so you will need to act fast.
Retrieve the Veil Stones and I'll make sure the Veil of the Ancients never falls into the wrong hands.
Everything you need to know is in your Quest Book. Good luck, I'm counting on you!
Beginning chapter two
You have achieved great things, but your adventure is far from over! We must have every last stone. This power cannot fall into the wrong hands.
Isn't it beautiful! But the power it holds... We must repair the Veil of the Ancients and prevent it from falling into the wrong hands!
When this is all over, we'll share a grog and you can tell me all about your adventures! But for now, we must find the next Veil Stone!
You have done well! But there's no time to waste
How the Servant and his minions are always one step ahead of us, I don't know - but we must have all the stones!
Beginning chapter three
Well now, that was an adventure worthy of a true Legend!
I'll keep the Veil safe and sound! Who knows, I may even call upon you to use its powers before too long.
Your adventures won't soon be forgotten, here and in the Sea of the Damned.
There are dark times ahead but with pirates like you at my side, I feel confident we can protect our way of life from those who seek to destroy it.
For what is the Sea of Thieves but a haven for those with adventure in their hearts and mischief in their souls!
Here's to you and all that you have done for this strange and wonderful home of ours, cheers!
Speaking to Sudds
Quickly, quickly, there is no time to waste. The Servant knows too much already, we must stop him. Take this map.
Too much in my head, had to get it down on paper. Take this, it'll lead you to the stone.
Here at last. I fear for the stone. This knowledge is precious, guard it with your life and find the stone before they do.
Knowledge can be dangerous, in the wrong hands. Keep this safe, find the stone.
Each stone holds its own power, but together, together they are powerful. We must keep it from them, not for them, far too dangerous...
Haunted Islands Dialogue
Speaking to Belle
Take this, it will reveal long-forgotten memories. Light the braziers and they will lead you to the jewel.
Be warned, its power allows you to glimpse events that happened long ago, but it may also draw the attention of those that serve Flameheart.
I was drawn to powerful memories here. Use the lantern to reveal them. Lighting the braziers will guide you to the resting place of the Veil Stone.
Be watchful, the Servant and his minions will be drawn to this power too.
There are powerful memories here, I feel it. Take this lantern, it will reveal them to you.
Light the braziers and they lead you to what you seek. Protect the stone, at all costs.
Ancient ritual chant
