Starting the Miniquest[edit | edit source]

  • Lookout Ekahi: Captain, you must end this. I am almost gone.
  • Player: No. There's still hope. Hold on just a little longer.
    • (Miniquest noticeboard opens up.)
      • Accept
        • [Continues below]
      • Decline
        • [Terminates conversation]
  • Player: We just need to find the source of Ekahi's curse and the necromancer who raised it.
  • Bosun Higgs: Jiangshi? That's gotta be that thing roaming round Goshima, right?
  • Player: It certainly fits the profile.
  • Quartermaster Gully: And the necromancer is probably my Cora. She has ties to Goshima, and she certainly seems capable seeing what she did ta those Skulls on the Turtles.
  • Player: That would be my guess.
  • Navigator Nemi: Then all we need to do is convince her to remove the curse and Ekahi will be cured!
  • Player: Sounds easy, right?
  • Bosun Higgs: Oh sure, we just need to go up against the Harbinger again and politely ask her captain to do us a favour. Should be a cinch. Maybe 'Vera' will be able to convince her.
  • Quartermaster Gully: Vera?
  • Bosun Higgs: Our new cannon.
  • Navigator Jemi: Er, you named the cannon? You named the cannon Vera?
  • Bosun Higgs: What? You lot DON'T name your weapons? Weirdos. Anyway, one shot is all we need - punch a hole in the Harbinger just above the water line.
  • Quartermaster Gully: Aye, then we'll keep her busy, and the Revenge floating, while ya board her, captain. If you can fight yer way to Cora, I'll give ya some pointers on how to talk her down.
    • Flippers McGraw: I'll make sure to pack some clean underwear this time.
  • Player: Sure, I guess that sounds like a plan. Let's put it to the test...
    • Are you ready to assault the Harbinger?
      • Yes
        • [Continues below}
      • No

Siege on The Harbinger[edit | edit source]

  • Bosun Higgs: Punch a hole in their Hull with the cannon!
  • Quartermaster Gully: Board them, captain!
  • Navigator Jemi: We'll draw their fire and protect the ship. And hopefully not die.

Boarding the Harbinger[edit | edit source]

After defeating the Zyclopes[edit | edit source]

  • Captain Cora: This ends here!

After defeating Captain Cora[edit | edit source]

  • Captain Cora: Enough! You cannot do this. You don't understand.
  • Player: Then help me understand. I've been to Goshima; I've seen that 'thing'. It's a jiangshi, yes?
  • Captain Cora: SHE is not a thing. SHE is my khan.
  • Player: That soul-sucking creature was the khan of Goshima?
  • Captain Cora: Not was, is!
  • Player: Her curse is spreading to other islands, to my crew!
  • Captain Cora: That's what the Harbinger was for, But you've destroyed that! We were keeping things contained, keeping her fed.
  • Player: Contain it? Feed her? You're crazy! You created her, right? You brought her back? You can end this. You HAVE to end this!
  • Captain Cora: I may have been bought, but she raised me as her own, gave me back my freedom. She was my only family... I was the child she couldn't have. Her bloodline dies with her. There is no other khan for Goshima.
  • Player: There is no Goshima! If things carry on like this, there'll be no Arc either! They're all dead, Cora. Everybody in Goshima is dead. And it's all your fault.
  • Captain Cora: Dead? No! That can't be. She only fed enough to sustain herself, so she could continue as khan. You're lying!
  • Player: Whatever she was, she's not anymore. I think you need to return to Goshima.
  • Captain Cora: I don't believe you. I... I have to see this with my own eyes.
  • Screen fades to black and your ship has arrived on Goshima

Arriving on Goshima docks[edit | edit source]

Talking to Ekahi[edit | edit source]

  • Lookout Ekahi: Please hurry. Captain Cora can lead you to the Jiangshi.

Talking to Cora[edit | edit source]

  • Captain Cora: Lead on, I will follow.
Screen fades to black and back.
  • Player: I have something to show you, Cora. Follow me.
  • Captain Cora: Very well.

First Stop[edit | edit source]

  • Player: See how much death your khan has wrought.
  • Captain Cora: They were loyal citizens of Goshima. They willingly gave their lives in service to their Khan[sic]. They died with honour, so that she could continue to rule us.
  • Player: The khan consumed their souls, Cora. She ate her people. How is that honourable? You make it sound like she's her old self. She's not your khan anymore.

Second Stop[edit | edit source]

  • Captain Cora: She did all of this? She wouldn't. She didn't. She was only meant to eat enough to sustain herself, to continue her rule.
  • Player: Sojobo told me that jiangshi cannot help themselves. Whoever she use to be, whoever she was after you raised her - she's not that person anymore. She's become a monster.
  • Captain Cora: No! I don't believe it. She promised me. I have to see her...
The Jiangshi fades into view.

Talking to the Jiangshi[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Can't you see what your khan has become? She is lost, Cora. She killed them all.
  • Captain Cora: Lost, but not gone. Her soul remains tethered to her body. I made sure of that.
  • Player: She might still have been herself when you raised her, but that person is long gone, Cora.
  • Captain Cora: I did what I had to do. The khan is of royal blood, but she had no descendants. When she dies, her bloodline dies with her. The legacy passed down to us by our ancestors will be lost to time.
  • Player: She isn't ruling anything. There's nobody left to rule over.
  • Captain Cora: I can bring her back. I know it. I'm close to a breakthrough. I just need more time.
  • Player: You don't have more time! Her curse is spreading. You can't risk the entire Arc just because you can't let her go.
  • Captain Cora: But she's all I have left! I can't...
  • Player: She's lived her life. She's had her time. This isn't your khan any more[sic]. This isn't the person you loved. You're being selfish. You're letting your grief rule your life. Think of what she would want, Let go, Cora. Let her rest.
  • Captain Cora: ... You're right. She wouldn't have wanted this. I'm sorry, my khan. I love you, but I have failed you. Rest in peace, mother.
Cora releases the Jiangshi/her mother and the screen fades to black. You are next to the boat again

Talking to the members of your crew individually[edit | edit source]

  • Lookout Ekahi: Thank you for not giving up on me, captain. Once again, I owe my life to you. Also, captain Cora wanted to talk to you.
  • Bosun Higgs: Ding dong, the khan is dead. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah. Can we go look for Jacob now?
  • Flippers McGraw: (If you've recruited him) Brr, this place shivers my flippers. It's so quiet and spooky. Can we leave soon?
  • Navigator Jemi: The khan of Goshima is dead, as are her citizens. It should be safe to travel here now, though I see no reason to linger.
  • Quartermaster Gully: The city of Gongdung be a tomb, Cap'n. A sealed tomb. There ain't no treasure to be found here... only dead, or worse. Let's be away.

Talking to Cora[edit | edit source]

  • Player: What now,Cora?
  • Captain Cora:Not all of our citizens will be dead - some will have found refuge elsewhere in the Arc. I shall bring them home, then we can rebuild.
  • player: Who will be Khan?
  • Captain Cora:I do not know. I was the closest thing she had to a family, but my selfishness has caused so much death. I deserve to be punished, not to become khan.
  • navigator jemi: In these parts, justice finds those who deserve it. I learned that much from the Thalassus.
  • Captain Cora: Will you visit me here, George? It will be good to see a friendly face, even as ugly and scarred as yours.
  • quartermaster gully: Ha! aye, Coraline, my love. Someone's gotta keep that foul tongue of yours in check.
  • Captain Cora: Good to hear! After all that Jiangshu and Ambassador business, I feel as though I can make a fresh start here.
  • navigator jemi:The Eastern lands never fail to brew a storm, in one way or another.
