Ahoy, matey!

Greetings and welcome to Krawk Island! Before continuing on your journey, be warned. There are pirates here! Watch your step or you may come toe-to-tail with a heinous pirate such as Aeridis.

Savvy? Then let's go! Keep your eyes peeled for secret areas!

Enter Krawk Island

Welcome to Krawk Island

Feel free to explore the town and chat with the locals. Be warned, though, some aren't very friendly (and the friendly ones are probably trying to steal your coin purse.)

What's this? You seem to have stumbled upon an angry tomato. Have you ever seen a tomato shake its fist before?

Chen's Tea Shop

Hello, young traveler, and welcome to my Tea Shop – what's that you say? It's very peculiar that there is a tea shop located on Krawk Island? Yes, I suppose that is quite peculiar, isn't it? A lot of the more hostile natives tend to give me a hard time about it, but I do receive a lot of business from the many traders that come and go from this port, especially those from my home country, Shenkuu.

I used to be a trader myself – I owned the most magnificent flying junk in all of Neopia. I traveled to such magnificent places such as Altador, Moltara, and Mystery Island, and I made quite a fortune trading with the natives. Shenkuu spices, herbs and silk are very popular, you see. Not to mention I could trade things I received from Moltara with, say, Mystery Island while making my trip (bronze lamps are very popular with the coconut people.) On a regular ship, such a journey through Neopia's waters can take months at a time, but, when you're traveling by a flying junk, the duration is cut in half.

However, my romantic adventures as a trader have recently come to a close. Quite awhile back I had the misfortune of running into the competition, specifically a Hissi who goes by the name Aeridis. Don't let her sweet looks fool you, as she is a liar and a traitor. She, too, is a trader and she peddles her wares along the same route that I used to. To be more accurate, she rather stole my route from me… and my ship as well.

Aeridis once traveled a much different route that crossed the sea from Krawk Island to the Lost Desert then followed the shoreline to Brightvale, next Meridell, and then Tyrannia. After Tyrannia, the route passed over Maraqua, stopped at Moltara, and then made way to Mystery Island where she would make the return trip to her home port. At the time, she traveled with Krawk Island ships, those ships bound to the water. Because of this, her access to the other lands, specifically the other ones on the other side of the Neopian globe was quite restricted. It's very possible to make the trip, but it is very dangerous, costly and, most of all, time-consuming.

Even with this restriction, Aeridis still had access to the majority of Neopia's lands, and she was making an enormous profit from trading with them. Yet, she couldn't take her eyes off the other side of the globe, namely Shenkuu – an especially hard region to access because of its location on top of steep mountains. So, when I had the inconvenience of coming across her, there was no doubt that, once she had set eyes on my flying junk, she found the solution to all of her… problems. Not only would she have access to every land in Neopia, she could make the trip much faster as well.

When we met for the first (and last) time, we were actually trading wares with one another here on Krawk Island. Aeridis was quite fascinated with the items from Shenkuu and Altador. Such items were quite rare around this part of the globe. While conducting business with me, she started inquiring about my homeland and the flying junk as well. She even asked me if piloting a flying junk was similar to navigating a ship on the ocean. Now that I think about it, her malicious intent, from the very beginning, was very obvious. Yet she had such an endearing attitude while speaking with me that I couldn't see it at the time.

We parted ways and my crew and I retired for the night. We slept in the junk itself which we docked within Krawk Island's harbor. The reason why we slept in the junk instead of on land was because we had a lot of valuables, of course, and we needed to protect them from thieves. Unknown to us, we would soon lose everything despite our best efforts. We were to leave for Mystery Island the next morning, but our lives would soon take an unexpected turn…

Early morning, I woke up to the sounds of yelling and fighting. I rushed out of my quarters and onto the deck to see my crew dealing with a group of pirates that somehow managed to board the junk. The fact that we were being attacked by pirates came as no surprise. After all, Krawk Island is notorious for being a haven for the villainous scumbags. However, what did come as a surprise was seeing Aeridis, a lady who spoke to me in such a polite and friendly manner the day before, was ordering the brutes around with a bossy and frightful demeanor.

Immediately, I stepped into the fray and confronted Aeridis herself. There were many angry words I wanted to exchange with her, but she only smirked and withdrew a sword from her scabbard. She was only interested in having our blades do the talking. I drew my own sword and the sound of metal against metal soon rang out across the high winds.

I was thrown off guard, not expecting her level of swordsmanship to be so advanced. Soon enough, my sword flew out of my hand and slid uselessly across the junk's deck. While I stood there, defenseless, I looked around and noticed that Aeridis's crewmates had already forced the rest of my men into submission. I glanced back at a still-smirking Aeridis, who pointed the tip of her blade away from my throat and toward the direction of the harbor.

You and your men will now leave my ship. She demanded coolly, as if the junk had been hers the entire time. And do it quickly, I don't take kindly to trespassers.

I didn't stay long to argue with her as I solemnly accepted that the junk, Aeridis's junk, was no longer under my ownership. After Aeridis ordered us to leave, I ran off the deck and jumped into the harbor and the rest of my men followed suit. As we bobbed up and down in the icy cold waters, we could only watch as the crew of pirates clumsily, yet successfully, piloted the junk out from the docks and into the air.

When my men and I made it to the shore, we noticed a lot of the cargo from the junk was floating around in the harbor. They had probably fallen off while those inexperienced scalawags were maneuvering the junk away. For the next few hours, we fished several crates out of the water. Most of them contained our supply of tea leaves, which is why we soon set up this shop in town (we had hardly anything left besides those tea leaves and we needed to find a way to earn Dubloons for the essentials you see.) Of course, the original supply from the harbor ran out long ago. Now we have our own original recipe created from Krawk Island's native plant species, which has an interesting… tangy taste.

Krawk Island Bank

Greetings! I don't think I have ever seen you before. Are you here to set up an account with us? No? Then perhaps you are here to fill our bank teller position. It's very difficult to find trustworthy clerks in an island full of thieves.

A long time ago, I hired a young, capable Hissi for the position. She was intelligent, friendly, punctual, and she kept everything at the bank running smoothly. At the time, I thought of her as my most valuable clerk. There were several times when I was tempted to promote her, but I didn't because I would have to increase her salary and find another Neopet to fill her position. So, I would be paying more for an existing clerk and, on top of that, I would have another salary on my pay roll for an additional clerk.

However, several of the customers started complaining and many of them threatened to take their business elsewhere. Apparently, while working with the wealthier patrons, my bank teller would sell some land to them on the side. Now, this wouldn't be so bad if the land she sold actually existed. I almost lost my best customers due to the heinous deeds of that despicable wench - ! Oh, you must excuse me. Some of the locals' speech seemed to have slipped on my tongue.

Rest assured that she didn't go unpunished for her crimes. She was sentenced and locked away for many years. In fact, she should still be serving her sentence to this day. Perhaps I was wrong in thinking that she was competent. After all, did she honestly think she could get away with selling imaginary land?

Oh, welcome to my home. I'm sorry, I didn't see you there. Wrong? What's wrong? After all these years, I still think about her. She promised me that, if I helped her escape, we would run away together. Instead, she ended up taking everything I owned and left. :'(

I make flying Hissi porcelain figures. It would make me happy (well happier) if you take one of them home because they all remind me of her. *sobs*

You probably won't find Aeridis and her crew here. Why not try the Marketplace?

Rest assured that she didn't go unpunished for her crimes. She was sentenced and locked away for many years. In fact, she should still be serving her sentence to this day. Perhaps I was wrong in thinking that she was competent. After all, did she honestly think she could get away with selling imaginary land?

Oh, welcome to my home. I'm sorry, I didn't see you there. Wrong? What's wrong? After all these years, I still think about her. She promised me that, if I helped her escape, we would run away together. Instead, she ended up taking everything I owned and left. :'(

I make flying Hissi porcelain figures. It would make me happy (well happier) if you take one of them home because they all remind me of her. *sobs*

Removed.

Zafara Shopkeeper

Welcome to my shop! Here I be sellin' all sorts of rare and fantastic wares from the Lost Desert, Terror Mountain... ye name it! I be willin' to part with any of these lovely items for the right price. ;-)

What? Ye don't have any Dubloons? Then get out of me sight!

THIEVES!!!

Come back here, you cowards!

*sigh*

What happened?

Back in my homeland, Altador, I overheard a group of my servants mocking me behind my back. They said that I was a spoiled rich boy who couldn't do anything for himself. One even dared to say that I couldn't lift the smallest rock from the flat-stone quarry!

This angered me greatly, but I thought that maybe... maybe they had a point. So I planned this trip to Krawk Island to study under Captain Threelegs for awhile in order to become stronger and, hopefully, more independent as well.

Instead, I've only proven my servants right. Just now, I was jumped by a group of pirates and they took my bag of Dubloons away from me. I couldn't do anything about it! :'(

You seem like a strong, kind, and honest Neopian. Will you please find out where the pirates have gone and bring my Dubloons back to me? I would really appreciate it!

Yes, I will help you!
No, I can't help. Sorry.

You will help me? Thank you very much! You are very kind. Unfortunately, I have no idea where those scoundrels may have fled to. Maybe the other pirates in the marketplace have an idea.

Shady Character

What a shady-looking fellow. Perhaps it's best for you to stay away from him...

Yer mother has the face of a Bilguss!

What are ye sayin' about me mother? Well ye sister has a nose as long as a Snarhook's!

Yer a no-good, filthy pirate fer insultin' my sister!

We both be pirates, you idiot!

Zafara Shopkeeper

*snickers* Yes, I saw Aeridis and her crew jump the Altadorian. Where did they go? Well, I'm not sayin'... unless yer willing to part with certain, shiny things that might loosen my lips... ;-)

What? Ye don't have any Dubloons? Then get out of me sight!

Hello, there

Have you found my Dubloons yet? You haven't? *sigh* Please keep trying. :-(

Shady Character

Pssst! Hey you! Yes, I'm talking to you.

I saw you talkin' to the Altadorian just now, and I know that you're lookin' for Aeridis. She and her crew typically dock their ship, The Vullard's Wing, in the northern harbor whenever they're in town. Their ship is a Shenkuu flyin' vessel so don't go lookin' for a regular ship.

Why am I helping you? Well, I have my reasons. *smirk* By the way, you should take this if you're going to see Aeridis.

I hope you're good with a sword.

Click here to go to the Harbor.

Yer lookin' for Aeridis. Sorry, but I don't know any Neopet that goes by that name -

Idiot! We work for Aeridis! How can ye say ye don't know her -?

Fool! Can't you tell I'm tryin' to deceive someone?

...Uh... We don't know any pet who goes by the name of Aeridis. Must have gotten her confused with someone else.

Zafara Shopkeeper

Hey, I remember ye. Yer that penniless Neopian - hey, wait a minute. That's an awfully large Dubloon bag ye have there! Would ye be interested in making a purchase?

Yer not interested? Then get out of me sight!

Hello, there

Have you found my Dubloons yet? You have! Will you please return them to me? :-)

Return the Dubloons to the Korbat

Hello, there

Thank you very much! I thought that I would never see it again! After my training with Captain Threelegs, I hope that I can be as brave as you.

Take good care of yourself!

Shady Character

I see you took the Dubloons from Aeridis. It must have been one worthwhile fight to see. *smirk*

Anyway, I'll be taking those Dubloons - wait. Did I give you my only sword? Drats!

Oh, well, I suppose things didn't go as planned. Here's the path toward the harbor if you still need help finding it.

Click here to go the harbor.

Can ye remember why we be fightin'?

...Not really, matey. :|

Then why we be fightin'?!

I just told ye that I don't remember!

Zafara Shopkeeper

Ye returned the Dubloons to the Korbat?! Ye could have had anything ye wanted here. *sigh*

Get out of me sight!

Hello, there

Having fun exploring the marketplace? You should visit my mansion in Altador someday. :D

Shady Character

You still can't find the harbor by yourself? I sure hope you aren't a pirate, matey.

Click here to go to the Harbor.

Arr, I'm sorry for fightin' with ye. Ye're the most heinous pirate on the seas! :-)

Naw, you're the most heinous pirate on the seas!

Not as heinous as Aeridis if we don't return to the ship soon.

*gulp*

Davey the Swabby

Swab the decks! Swab the decks! The Captain sounds like a Piraket, always screechin' and repeatin' herself. Why do I have to swab the decks all the time?! *shakes fist*

Aeridis wasn't always our Captain. In fact, she was once a deckhand like the rest of us under Captain RattlingStream. Stream was a great fellow... a bit crazy but he wasn't as strict as Aeridis is. But Aeridis convinced all of us that Stream was a poor leader... that she could do better. So, one night, we committed mutiny against Stream and stranded him on a deserted island. One would think it would be difficult to maroon a Lenny, being able to fly and all, but, well, the old Captain didn't really have a sense of direction.

I suppose we have been doing better under Aeridis... we've been able to conduct better business both legal and, well, illegal. However, I still like things the way they were under Stream and I regret the fact that we marooned him. Especially since he never had me swab the decks! Grr!

I ought to kick you out, but, as of now, I really don't care. The Captain Aeridis's quarters are beyond that door over there. Have fun. :D

Something smells here...

Ew! A Manjeer! It's got flies hovering above it and everything! Why would a pirate captain want such a mangy mutt?

Art Gallery

What's this hanging on the wall? Oh! There are some beautiful portraits of Aeridis here! Hover your mouse over the image to see what wonderful artist drew the picture, and click and drag to your URL to see it full sized. :D

Desk

Hey, what's this on the desk? This must be the Korbat's stolen bag of Dubloons! You should take it and get out of here quick before Aeridis returns.

Aeridis's Quarters

You picked up the stolen Dubloons. Maybe you should consider leaving soon.

Mutt

Ah, yes, that is my Manjeer, Mutt. He wandered onto the ship somehow during one of our voyages. I was going to toss him out, but he's just so pathetic-looking. :|

It's not like I really like him or anything. Because I don't. He's nothing but a worthless mutt.

Welcome, matey!

See those spears near my bed? I love collecting weapons from all over Neopia. :-) Also, it's very handy to have several weapons nearby when there's someone invading your ship!

We're going to go on another voyage in the next month or so, selling our wares. We're staying here until the wind pattern changes. Since our ship flies, it's more reliant on good winds compared to a ship that's on the water.

No, I wasn't trying to steal the bag of Dubloons back from you. What makes you think that? :|

What did you do with that big bag of Dubloons, by the way? I'm not scheming or anything, you can tell me! :-)

Uh-oh...

Where do you think you're going? Do you honestly think you can get away with snooping around in my room and taking my Dubloons? If so, you're sadly mistaken, matey. In a moment, you'll be sleeping with the fishes.

Duel Aeridis
Plead for your life.

You cross swords with Aeridis, using the blade the shady Mutant Krawk gave you. Then, all of a sudden...

BOOM!!!

Curses! It seems that a navy ship has pulled into the harbor and fired at us. Don't just stand there! Find a cannon and start firing - why should you listen to me? Look, matey, if this ship goes down, you're going down with it. So it's in your best interest to do what I say.

Aye-aye, captain!

You get on your knees and start begging to Aeridis to spare your life. Then, all of a sudden...

BOOM!!!

Curses! It seems that a navy ship has pulled into the harbor and fired at us. Don't just kneel there whimpering! Find a cannon and start firing - why should you listen to me? Look, matey, if this ship goes down, you're going down with it. So it's in your best interest to do what I say.

Aye-aye, captain!

Enemy Ship

Click on the ship to fire. Aim carefully!

You watch the cannonball fly out of the cannon... and it plops right into the water.

What a lousy shot! Are you trying to get us killed?! Load another cannonball!

Aye-aye, captain!

You watch the cannonball fly out of the cannon... and it tears through the enemy ship's hull! Hurray!

Aeridis approaches you.

Beautiful shot, matey! You saved my ship. As thanks, you're free to go and you may keep the Dubloons as well. You may also come aboard the ship and enter my quarters any time (unless I'm sleeping, of course.)
