Beforetime history tells us a legend. A legend of a majestic ship, Captained by the crafty Pirate Master, Captain William Stonesword. Captain Stonesword travelled the seas plundering and looting the shores of the land.
Legend tells us that Captain Stonesword was a crafty pirate and very protective of his magnificent treasure. After each successful plunder, he and his most trusted pirate companions would hide their treasure on a mysterious unchartered island… Or so the Captain thought.
One day a young cabin boy followed the captain and discovered the secret of the hidden treasure. In hopes of one day returning to the island to claim the treasure for himself, the boy drew his own map, describing the features and position of the island as best he could.
The boy however, was never able to return to the island. Only months after his discovery, Captain Stonesword and his magnificent ship floundered and sunk in a mighty storm. Captain Stonesword died carrying his secret to his grave, the Cabin boy however, in one final act of defiance managed to secure his map in a bottle and moments before the ship was swamped, he tossed the bottle out into the waters where it was carried away into the night.
Many years later, while exploring a hidden beforetime library, a young teknoguilder happened across a strange hand drawn map, perfectly preserved in a sealed bottle. After a quick consultation of some old and modern sea charts, the teknoguilder confidently presented her findings to her Guildmaster and requested to head a mission to locate the treasure described in the map.
Her request granted, the excited teknoguilder set out to recruit a crew and captain for a treasure hunting expedition...
