Skull & Shackles
Part Four: The Treasure of Mancatcher Cove
Part Four of the adventure can occur anytime after the PCs have recovered the strange map tattooed on the back of Isabella “Inkskin” Locke, if and when they decide to go in search of the legendary treasure of Mancatcher Cove.
The Treasure Map
The map tattooed on the Isabella Locke’s back depicts the outlines of several small islands. A stylized half sun sits to the right of the islands, while simple images of a monstrous eye and the face of an aged, bearded king are to the left. Beneath the map are five lines of crude verse:
From blue bight’s embrace
Spy the Grave Lady’s prize tooth
With the Dawnf lower’s first kiss
Climb the Captain’s wayward orb
To claim old king’s hoard
The map shows the way to Mancatcher Cove, the site of Cyrus Wolfe’s fabled hidden treasure, but it must be deciphered first. Several skill checks are listed below that can be used to identify some of the map’s markings, but many of its details and instructions will not become clear until the PCs are actually present at Mancatcher Cove.
