Mr. Backdeer, Mr. Stevens and Sr. Fuego woke up in a cave on Grey Pick Island, not knowing how they ended up there. All they found was a navy officer who committed suicide leaving a letter describing a madness taking over the villagers. They found passage to Pt. Royal via the HMS Interdictor. They learned they had joined the crew of de Vries about a year ago. Party then was contacted by Lady Olivia Willard, who offered them employment. Lady Willard inherited her family estates after losing her parents to a shipping accident. She needs funds kept in family vault under the massive fort in Pt. Royal.

However, they found the vault had been almost depleted by Lady Olivia’s missing brother Vincent Willard. In the Vault, they managed to find some money, and diary of Late Lady Willard, albeit in a different language that none in the party can read.
