The Pirate Advent Calendar Review β€” Day 24

Pirate Advent Calendar Day 24 copy

At the very back of the cave, glowing in a beam of sunlight lies an overflowing treasure chest. Diamonds, sapphires, and rubies the size of a man’s fist along with piles of gold are spilling onto the ground. This is what Captain Brickbeard was seeking. His very own hidden treasure. The only problem is the raft they brought with them will never carry this many jewels and gold.

Deciding that the treasure is fairly safe where it is, Brickbeard and Janey Blackheart decide to bury most of it so that even if others come to this island all they will find is the ancient temple and nothing else. The gems and gold they kept out is more than the average king’s ransom.

The three make their way to the beach and take the raft back out to sea. Reaching the ship in the dark of night. Captain Brickbeard and Janey Blackheart climb up the hidden ladder into the Captian’s cabin window while Simon rows the raft to the side of the ship calling for aide.

Brickbeard emerges from the cabin. Seeing the castaway, he orders his men to bring the man aboard. “Introducing” himself Simon explains that he was abandoned on an island many years ago and only now has escaped. Much to the surprise of his men, Brickbeard invites Simon aboard and offers to return him to his home.

The Brick Pearl sails away, leaving the island and its secrets far behind. πŸ˜€

Back on the island Captain Brickbeard, Janey Blackheart, and Simon the castaway have made their way up the mountain and into the cave. Carved from the living stone, they find an ancient temple of steps and columns.

They also find the remains of an unlucky visitor to the cave. Nothing but bones remain of this traveler which have now become the home of a venomous snake.

Hopefully they will not meet the same fate.

Pirate Advent Calendar Day 13

The three unlikely companions wake the next morning to the chitterlings of a monkey. It seems he has dropped his banana and now is jumping down from the trees after it. Before the monkey gets to his most favored fruit Captain Brickbeard snaps it up. The very angry monkey climbs back up to his banana tree and starts throwing bananas at the Captain.

After avoiding some nearly missed head injuries, the Captain, Janey and Simon break their fast on a feast of bananas. πŸ™‚

Pirate Advent Calendar Day 10

Next they come upon a much more useful and suspiciously convenient barrel holding a shovel and pick axe. Who could have left these here? Has someone already claimed what they are seeking and left the now unnecessary tools behind?

They seem well worn but not abandoned. What does this mean? Will the pirates quest end barely after it started?

Picking up the tools the Captain and his First Mate continue following the map hoping that they will be needed.
