Part 19 – Hide and Seek

A header image displaying Token Tales, and the title of the Arc, on Perilous Waves

The First Mate of the Crew has been defeated, but the Captain’s location hasn’t been discovered. As the Party venture further into the Cove, they find a well lit room with nought but a stone door at one end. In the centre of the room, a pedestal holds a small button and a plaque that reads “X Marks the Spot.” This room has been built to hide something, or perhaps someone? If a Party member pushes the button, a transmutation spell transforms their hand into an ornate hook. The hook glints in the light, and is made of stainless steel.

Things to Prepare:

  • Solution: The Ornate Hook must be used to carve an X into the door.
  • A well lit room, with distractions and hints to help with the puzzle.
  • Some Pirate themed decor – maybe the pedestal has a ship’s wheel on it.
  • Something to up the pressure, maybe the hook harms the Party member wearing it.

On Success: The stone doors creak open, revealing the room to the Captain’s Cabin.

On Failure: The Party struggles to open the stone doors, and must try again.

Reward: A meeting with the Pirate Captain that has caused so much chaos.
