"A dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest". Fearless Francis The Undead Scalper of Whitesand Bay has wrecked my almighty ship, 'The Dragon's Strumpet' and has been washed ashore to Skull Island with all my loot! I will be recruiting my merry band of wreckers with my Quartermaster, 'Swinging Cutlass Sally Mcghee' by my side in the upcoming weeks. You will be responsible for individually bringing my items back to the end of the land where I shall reward you. Make no... mistake...NO LOOT AND YOU WILL TAKE A SHORT WALK OFF A VERY LONG PLANK AND THAT WILL BE THE ONLY REWARD FOR YOU! There is but another problem... Customs are protecting said loot against piracy and along the path you will be warned what happens to wreckers who step foot on the island. Will ye dare to rob the dead and have the rum bottle to peg leg it as fast as you can past all the other customs officers en route and not get hung, drawn and quartered in the process? It's an arduous task and only the strongest of pirate will survive! My first wrecker back to the end of all the land will succeed me and take the wooden helm of The Dragon's Strumpet(What will be left of it after being half plunged beneath The Brisons!) Ye be warned my merry band of thieves!! All ye details to follow in a little while, for now I must return to a Quartermaster with the worst bout of cabin fever since me last crew were wiped out with it aboard 'The Disgraceful Barnacle' in 1796.
