||“Briggsy knew of Wild Rose... Can two lost lovers lead the way to the Shores of Gold?”
Wild Rose is the fifth Tall Tale in the Shores of Gold arc. Madame Olive is worried about the fate of the engaged couple Rose and George.
The tale can be acquired from the cabinet beside Madame Olive's desk.
Did Olivia send you? Oh, thank heavens!
I've been beside myself, out here all alone with no-one to confide in but that beastly Humphrey.
There's nothing I can do, you see, not really.
I'm no pirate, not like my best friend Rose. She's amazing!
I once saw her bite a rope clean in half, you know.
She's so fierce! Unless she's with George...
He's her fiance now, and she sent me this beautiful diary! All about how they both met and fell in love.
They've even asked me to officiate their wedding! It's such an honor.
Except... You see...
They were due to be married three days ago, but they never arrived and I've been worried sick ever since.
I just know something must be wrong.
Olivia told me her compass helped you locate a Skeleton Lord.
I'm not as skilled with the Ritual, but... Yes, perhaps the same magic might help locate Rose and George!
Rose wrote about burying precious keepsakes in her diary.
Find their Chest of Memories and bring me any memories it leads you to!
Please, hurry, I'm begging you!
The diary contains a large amount of exposition that explains the couples' backstory. Rose listed the location of the buried Chest of Memories that holds two Lovers Notes, these notes are chronicles of special places that the couple revisited to hide their treasures where they stood.
We survived our first ambush!
The day we found our pendants!
Smuggler's Bay, the vows are read one word back and forth.
We pirates take each other to be awful man and wife. To have and to hold, for better or worse. For the rest of our scoundrels life. We'll remain in love, through Marauder's Arch all the way to Glowstone Cay. From where we now stand, on Smugglers Bay to Thieves' Haven and away. Always yours, with treasure and grog, until we're gray and old. We'll keep in good health in shipwreck and wealth 'til the Ferryman no longer bears our souls.
Submit these items to Madame Olive for her to trans-mutate.
That looks like the music box Rose spoke of...
And these must be George's secret cooking spices!
I'm not as skilled at the Rite as Madame Olivia, but Rose is counting on me, so this has to work.
I'll make it work!
(Madame Olive adds the mementos and some ingredients into a transmutation box, which processes them into an Enchanted Compass.)
This compass will lead the way towards Wild Rose and George.
Wherever they may be.
Please, do whatever it take to get them home safely... So they can finally have their wedding day!
The Enchanted Compass will first point to Rose. After Rose is found, the compass will change its direction to George. Current known locations for either Rose or George are Lone Cove, Cannon Cove and Crescent Isle. George has also been sighted at Plunder Valley, Shark Bait Cove and Snake Island.
Rose left her pendant and wrote a letter to George suspecting that they might be spiritually bound to their pendants. The Skeleton Captain Rooke had stolen George and killed Rose; slaying her will surrender George's pendant.
My little Georgie. Finally, I have you to myself.
You could be a little nicer to me, given everything I've sacrificed.
Graymarrow doesn't give away secrets easily, you know.
Still... it was worth it.
Binding that silly girl's spirit and watching the light fade from her eyes.
I wish you could've been there, Georgie.
I was magnificent.
Oh now don't sulk.
You'll see things my way in time.
I'm all you've got left.
Submit the pendants to Madame Olive to finish.
By the heavens, I can hear them crying out from the pendants.
I've never seen a curse this powerful before... I... I don't know what to do.
Come on Olive! Rose was always there for you, even if it meant she got hurt so you'd be okay.
Well you're grown up now! Your turn to take the blow!
I thank you for all you've done for me, but whatever happens now you must not interfere.
There's one last ritual I can attempt, but it's forbidden.
Because... Because few can take the pain.
But even if I don't survive, Rose? Well... She'd do the same for me.
(Madame Olive adds the pendants and some materials into the transmutation box, and processes them at the apparent cost of her welfare. The souls rise from the box and unite before dissipating.)
I did it!
They're together, at last. They're free from Rooke's curse.
I don't think they'll be returning anytime soon.
But they've found one another, thanks to you!
They're eternally grateful and so am I!
I'll make sure everyone in the Order knows what you did for two lost souls today.
If anyone can make it to the Shores of Gold, it's you!
I Want to Fight! — By Rose[edit | edit source]
She was following us again all day. I could see her sails on the horizon. Just out of reach of the cannons. COWARD.
I knew I wanted this life. Ever since I fell from my parents' sloop as a nipper and got saved by Captain Briggsy herself!
She looked me up and down and said I was going to be the sort of pirate who never let danger scare her away.
And thanks to her I never have. But they all say it's still too dangerous to take on Rooke.
I guess to keep George happy I will just keep writing my feelings down instead of wasting all our ammo. Ugh.
I wish things were simple again like they were back at Cannon Cove...
He'll Get Himself Killed!— By Rose[edit | edit source]
(Bay campfire, Cannon Cove)
So we're at Cannon Cove and there's just gold sat there like a big dumb trap for idiots.
Guess who runs right up to it and gets jumped by an enemy crew lying in wait? YUP!
I had to fight all four of them myself. Lucky I had George's sword and mine also.
I was angry though so it was an easy fight. He never realised it was him I was mad at.
Let's see if we can make it to Lone Cove without me strangling him. I say it's 50–50.
I Think I Love Her — By George[edit | edit source]
(Central Rock, Lone Cove)
We have stopped to rest on our way to the Lagoon of Whispers, but the only whisper I can hear is echoes of the question.
Asked so plainly, the shock of it has completely dulled my senses, and I'm still no closer to the answer.
It's like that game where children pull petals off flowers one at a time.
She loves me, she loves me not. Although it's more like... I love her, I love her not, I love her...
I love her... I... Oh dear.
A Kiss and a Kiss — By George[edit | edit source]
(East Lagoon of Whispers)
Only the Captain's Cabin affords any measure of privacy on a galleon such as ours.
I knew that if I were to act, it would have to be while we returned aboard our rowboat.
I leaned closer. Rose tilted her head, quizzically. With my heart in my mouth, I moved nearer still...
My oar struck a sandbar just then. We touched! Or rather, collided. Rose's forehead; my (now rather bloody) nose.
I am dismayed, but not defeated. Once Quickshot is returned to the soil and we reach Sailor's Bounty, I shall try my luck again...
(Northeast Islet, Sailor's Bounty)
Today has been one of the best days of my life and one of the funniest too. My sides still hurt!
George had been thinking (too much) about how to propose to me. Where to take me and how to stand and what to say. Too bad he forgot to look where he was walking! He turned and said "Rose will you marry aaargh!"
He fell into a tree and got stuck upside-down swinging all day! Until we chopped it down anyway. Ha ha ha! Laughing again.
But of course I said yes anyway. As if I could refuse my George after all of that!
