Fate of the Wild Shores[edit | edit source]

As the Festival of the Damned begins, a new threat haunts both The Wilds and The Shores of Plenty.

The first week of the Festival of the Damned tasks players with helping Duke on the Lagoon of Whispers deal with Green and Purple Shadows of Fate in The Shores of Plenty and The Wilds. The adventure can be started by buying The Search for Wild, Plentiful Shadows of Fate Voyage from Larinna. The goals of the week are tied to the Purple and Green Flames of Fate.

Larinna’s Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Larinna’s dialogue will change every week to reflect the current Challenges and Adventures:

Dialogue icon.png

Greetings, pirate! Looking to part with your doubloons? Or can I tempt you into something more exciting than a shopping spree?

What about the Festival of the Damned?

Oh, we're celebrating, just like always! It takes more than the threat of impending doom to keep pirates away from a good time.
When I first arrived here, I must admit I found it strange to hold a festival in honour of the Ferryman. He's not exactly a party animal!
Still, if pirates want to throw themselves down a shark's gullet for the sake of a nicely-coloured lantern, who am I to judge?
We're offering rewards for anyone who can complete our Festival Challenges, so you'll probably see ships and beacons burning all kinds of bright.
Duke used to call them 'party boats' - but then, he would, wouldn't he? If you're feeling brave, you could try asking the Ferryman about them...

I like the sound of 'exciting'!

Who doesn't? I'm trying to solve a mystery right now, and you might be able to help if you've a ship and a nose for trouble.
A while back, I started hearing rumours that pirates had spotted Shadows of Fate, lurking on islands in the Shores of Plenty and the Wilds.
Oh, sorry - that's Duke's name for them. I'm talking about those shadowy skellies that are a little more... colourful than usual.

You're being pretty secretive...

We know very little about them, but they mostly seem to appear when pirates launch a raid upon the Fort of the Damned.
They're pretty dangerous, so if they really are spreading across the sea, we need to find out why. Oh, and destroy them all. Obviously.
If you'd like to join our investigation, I'm offering Voyages in the Black Market. Free to anyone who thinks they can help!

Larinna’s Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Larinna’s musings on the second week of the Festival of the Damned:

Dialogue icon.png

Ah, good timing! You must be here to help with our skelly situation... Or did you just come here to browse the Black Market?

What about the Festival of the Damned?

Oh, we're celebrating, just like always! It takes more than the threat of impending doom to keep pirates away from a good time.
When I first arrived here, I must admit I found it strange to hold a festival in honour of the Ferryman. He's not exactly a party animal!
Still, if pirates want to throw themselves down a shark's gullet for the sake of a nicely-coloured lantern, who am I to judge?
We're offering rewards for anyone who can complete our Festival Challenges, so you'll probably see ships and beacons burning all kinds of bright.
Duke used to call them 'party boats' - but then, he would, wouldn't he? If you're feeling brave, you could try asking the Ferryman about them...

What's this about skeletons?

Ugh. If you must know, you're not the first person I've told about this. Duke had a bad habit of shoving others headlong into danger.
That's why I already sent crews of Bilge Rats to learn the truth of the matter and document anything they discovered, see if it was worth our time.
I thought I was being cautious. Trouble is, my crews never came back from their Voyages! At this rate, I'm going to run out of recruits...
I'm hoping that anyone brave enough to accept a Voyage from me will learn not just about the skellies, but also the fate of my people.

The Bilge Rats need my help?

Let's just say we wouldn't say no to anyone who's willing to follow in our footsteps and maybe stomp a few skulls along the way.
Bilge Rats are tough, but I've already lost several crews to whatever's out there. Crews who should be back from the Ferry by now...
Still, that's for me to worry about. If you do decide to help, though, I'd love to get more information about what exactly happened to my people.
I've heard one or two accounts of strange ritual sites and scattered relics. If you find any proof of that, bring it to me for a reward!
Well, I've said all I know. Whether you decide to help or not, watch your back out in the Ancient Isles. You might not be alone...

Dodge raining rocks in The Devil's Roar as you learn the truth about the Shadows of Fate.

The third week of the Festival of the Damned tasks players with sailing to Morrow’s Peak Outpost to deal with Red and Pink Shadows of Fate in The Devil’s Roar.

Larinna’s Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Larinna’s musings on the third week of the Festival of the Damned:

Dialogue icon.png

If you're on the hunt for shadow skellies, you're just in time! I've a fresh stash of Voyages now that we know who's behind it all...

What about the Festival of the Damned?

Oh, we're celebrating, just like always! It takes more than the threat of impending doom to keep pirates away from a good time.
When I first arrived here, I must admit I found it strange to hold a festival in honour of the Ferryman. He's not exactly a party animal!
Still, if pirates want to throw themselves down a shark's gullet for the sake of a nicely-coloured lantern, who am I to judge?
We're offering rewards for anyone who can complete our Festival Challenges, so you'll probably see ships and beacons burning all kinds of bright.
Duke used to call them 'party boats' - but then, he would, wouldn't he? If you're feeling brave, you could try asking the Ferryman about them...

Someone's up to no good?

Not just any someone, but a Skeleton Lord named Graymarrow - or what's left of him.
I thought he'd been destroyed, though a few pirates swore they'd encountered his ghost while poking around the Fort of the Damned.
Now some skellies are trying to bring him back from the dead! Well, even more dead. Ghost skeletons make my head hurt.
At least now I know what happened to my Bilge Rats. Graymarrow has a nasty habit of binding his enemies' souls to cursed objects.
Once this is over, I'll be having a little chat with that Pendragon fellow about putting those poor crews to rest...

You mentioned a skeleton hunt...

Needs must, I'm afraid. As skellies have been messing about with Dark Relics, they've been opening fissures to the Sea of the Damned.
They don't last for long, but it's more than enough time for Shadows of Fate to escape and start roaming the islands.
They're a real menace if you're not prepared for them, so I've been recruiting pirates to hunt them down and do what they do best.
This week, most of the sightings have occurred in the Devil's Roar. I suppose the skellies think we won't follow them there. Hah!
I've added free Voyages to the Black Market and will pay for recovered Ritual Skulls. Hopefully that'll be enough incentive to help.

Defeat the Damned![edit | edit source]

A powerful foe plots his revenge... Eliminate the Shadows of Fate and put an end to his scheme.

The fourth and final week of the Festival of the Damned tasks players with dealing with Shadows of Fate and their leader, Graymarrow in any means possible, to defeat the remainder of the threat on Sea of Thieves. All Fate of the Damned Voyages from the previous three weeks are available. The goals of the week are tied to all Flames of Fate, the Voyages and the Fort of the Damned.

Larinna’s Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Larinna’s musings on the final week of the Festival of the Damned:

Dialogue icon.png

Let's keep this short. We've almost got those damned skellies beaten, and I don't want to get distracted!

What about the Festival of the Damned?

Oh, we're celebrating, just like always! It takes more than the threat of impending doom to keep pirates away from a good time.
When I first arrived here, I must admit I found it strange to hold a festival in honour of the Ferryman. He's not exactly a party animal!
Still, if pirates want to throw themselves down a shark's gullet for the sake of a nicely-coloured lantern, who am I to judge?
We're offering rewards for anyone who can complete our Festival Challenges, so you'll probably see ships and beacons burning all kinds of bright.
Duke used to call them 'party boats' - but then, he would, wouldn't he? If you're feeling brave, you could try asking the Ferryman about them...

You seem a little preoccupied...

You're a sharp one... We've been waging a month-long war against skellies who've been wreaking havoc across the Sea of Thieves.
They've gotten it into their skulls to try and summon the ghost of Graymarrow and pit him against Flameheart! Idiots, the lot of them.
As if that weren't bad enough, their half-baked attempts at the ritual have caused an ocean-wide plague - Shadows of Fate.
They're cropping up all over the map, so watch yourself out there. Your weapons won't even land a blow if you don't know what you're doing.
I've lost a lot of loyal Bilge Rats, but the tide finally seems to be turning. We have to push on and recover every last Ritual Skull!

If there's a fight, count me in!

That's the spirit! There are Voyages for sale in the Black Market that'll set you on the hunt for the skellies and a ritual site.
If you ask around, you'll likely discover traces of the unfortunate Bilge Rats who went to stop the rituals... and met Graymarrow.
You'll also need to watch out for Shadows of Fate, as they can only be made vulnerable by flames brought back from the Ferry.
I'm not saying it won't be dangerous, but if we all pull together we can strike one last blow and put a stop to the skellies for good.
I'd love to be out there in person, but there's simply too much to organise. Oh, well. Complaining doesn't help smash skulls...
