Uncharted Waters: New Horizons
Text Dump
Dumped by Super Nova


 The text in this document was taken from a ROM. The fact that I used one does
not mean that I support the idea of emulation, since this damages the videogame
industry. I made use of the ROM to help gamers, not to hinder game companies.
 The text was dumped and put into a readable format by Duncan Hardy (aka Super
Nova). This document is therefore Copyright (c)2003 Duncan Hardy.

 Before I begin I'd better explain what a text dump is. You can find them for
big games such as Zelda: OoT. A text dump contains all the game script, ripped
straight from the ROM. It is useful in several ways - if you want to know the
plot for a game or a certain piece of dialogue it will assist you. In a random
game such as Uncharted Waters, with several characters and hundreds of hidden
events, a text dump can reveal to you something you didn't yet know or remind
you of what someone said when you've forgotten.
 Sorting out the text from a ROM into readable format is time consuming, but I
enjoyed making this. Hopefully it will help you. If you know a key word from a
quote you are looking for, type it in the Find box (Ctrl + F).

anything that is variable (money held, a name, a country's name, a ship etc.).

After a %s day voyage I finally found  my enemy, Joao.  But unfortunately
Commander Ezequiel  interfered, and  stole my chance to take revenge.  In
retrospect, however,  I'm glad that I didn't defeat Joao then.

Hey! Looks like there's a big fight over there! Those two people are being
attacked by that huge mob of pirates! Andreas! Emilio! Let's save them!

Hmph, you're pretty tough. Hey, you guys, it's time for you to take care of the

Not if I have anything to say about it! I am Joao Franco. As a token of my
thanks, I'll play a song on my lute for you. ...

What irony... I saved the life of a Franco. I was drawn further into the Franco
family's affairs  when I was tricked into joining a nobleman's plot.  We
kidnapped a girl named Lucia for him,  but that turned out to be a  serious

Old lady, my foot. Just get lost, children! You're not welcome here!

Do you know a young noble who visits here from time to time?

Yes, he comes here incognito. He is always kind and sincere, and he's very
handsome. That man said he wants to meet with you, but he can't come here right
now. He's asked me to bring you to visit him.

All of the signs had led me to believe that the Francos were guilty.  But Otto,
Pietro, and Joao told me the truth,  and I was so confused! I no longer knew
who my real enemy was.

Then you are kidnappers. Where is Lucia? If you return her now, we'll save your

What are you talking about? If you insist on making false charges, I'll dump
you in the ocean as sharkbait.

Watch your mouth, pal!

So the Francos didn't have a fleet until I built one. Then who destroyed my
brother and Hernan? I learned who really set fire to my brother's fleet  from
Pietro and an old man named Raul.  I went to South America, where I knew my
enemy would be waiting.  There, I joined Joao and helped him  rescue Lucia.

I'm sorry, Commodore. Lucia was taken as a hostage.

Joao, I'll take care of these hoodlums, so grab Lucia and get out of here!

Thanks, %s, I owe you one!

Michael, Hernan...  I finally avenged your defeat.  The fire of revenge no
longer consumes me.  Finally I can rest. My heart is now at peace.

%s %s, congratulations on your accomplishment.  You've defeated the Spanish

Thank you, your majesty. It seems I was very lucky.

Excuse me, your majesty, but I have something to tell you.

What is it, Gilbert?

This man is no hero. He allowed the enemy commander to escape.

Is that true, %s?

Yes, sir.

Why did you do that?

Your majesty, my mission was to completely destroy the Spanish Fleet. I judged
that I completed my mission. Furthermore, the enemy commander accepted our
request for a personal duel without a moment's hesitation. How could I destroy
such a gentleman, such a man of his word?

How dare you give such excuses...

Hold it right there, Gilbert. I was right in my judgement. You are an honorable
man, a true knight. I appoint you to be Admiral of the Royal Navy.

It's a great honor. Thank you very much, your majesty.

%s %s fulfilled King Henry VIII's order to destroy the Spanish Fleet. But he
was going to face yet another challenge.

As King Henry requested, I began attacking fleets in the name of Britain,  but
jealous Lord Gilbert tried to hinder our success   by keeping us poorly
supplied.  However, Matthew's sly trick  brought me a state of the art Spanish
galleon.  The acquisition of that mighty ship marked a turning point on our
path to victory.

Well then, we'll just have to get our hands on that new Spanish beauty, won't
we? Wait! Where are you going?

We came upon a notorious and beautiful female pirate named Catalina Erantzo, 
who was bent on avenging the loss of her brother. She was in pursuit  of a
sailor named Joao, whom she held responsible for the dastardly deed.  I
couldn't help but admire her determination.

My name is Catalina Erantzo. Please forgive my previous actions, I'm a little
jumpy lately.

Say nothing of it. My name is %s %s. I'm commander of a fleet from England. We
learned of a Spanish fleet heading for Seville,  transporting gold from the New
World.  We knew that if we successfully plundered that fleet,  it would deliver
a substantial blow  to the fortunes of Spain.

Say Commodore, I'm bored. Don't you have any exciting stories?

Why, I have some exciting stories. We happened upon Ezequiel, Commander of the
Spanish Fleet,  in a rather unexpected way.  We vowed to have one final battle 
for the glory of our countries.

Forgive me for waiting so long to introduce myself. I'm Ezequiel, Commander of
the Spanish Fleet.


The final battle between our British Fleet and the Spanish Fleet has ended in
triumph.  We were victorious! The [Invincible] Spanish Fleet has been crushed. 
This means that I have fulfilled my mission.  I have accomplished all that King
Henry has asked.

Hello, Duchess of Lisbon. %s %s, at your service, just returned from the golden
city of El Dorado.

Oh, %s, you mean you've finally achieved your life-long dream?

Well, to tell you the truth, someone found it before me...

Oh, no...

But I wouldn't return to my sponsor without a souvenir.

I brought a gift for the Franco family.

A gift?

Yes, Camillo will bring him here soon. Actually, my gift is really for Duke
Franco. Could I see him, please?

Of course, let me go get him.

How do you do? I am Leon Franco.

Commodore, Duke, here's Raul!

Ra, Raul? My... Ooohh, Leon! I missed you! You've grown up so much, my son!

Father... Not a bad gift, eh?

%s %s's fame grew to legendary proportions when he reunited Raul and Joao
Franco.  But his journey had only just begun.

I knew there were many wealthy families in Lisbon,  but I didn't think  there
was such a generous one!  The Duchess of Franco hired me and promised to  pay
off all of my debts.  What a chance!  It was the deal of a lifetime! This world
is full of liars and con artists.  I paid a fortune at a cafe  to get a map to
El Dorado.  I thought it would bring me fabulous riches,  but I all found was
one gold medallion.  Oh well, at least it paid for the cost of the trip.

Say %s, could I take a look at the gold medallion?

The Staff of Poseidon - now that was quite an adventure.  I never thought that 
I would save someone's life until then.  When I found it,  I was very tempted
to sell it  to a Turkish lord.  I knew it would be worth a lot.

Well, I need you to find the Staff of Poseidon for me. It's extremely

One thing I've learned from my adventures is that life is full of surprises. 
Take my trip to South America-  In search of the land of gold, I journeyed to
the New World.  The old man I saved was not only the long lost Raul Franco, 
but also the legendary sailor who discovered El Dorado!

Are you fellows looking for a place called El Dorado?

Who're you?

My name is Ernst. I've been traveling the globe in order to make an accurate
world map.

He's still breathing. Hey, wake up!

Huh? Where am I? What happened to me?

Now that my contract with the Franco family is finally completed,  I'm thinking
of heading out on a real adventure,  going where *I* want to go.  It's a big
world out there.  I'm sure that there are still magnificent treasures just
waiting to be discovered by a guy like me!

Congratulations, Paula! You finally found your home land.

Thank you, %s!

You even found your parents. Your dream has come true!

Why, yes.

... Well, I guess this means goodbye.

... I guess so...

Unless, well, er, I wonder, er, if you'd like to travel with me again.

Are you sure?

Of course!


%s %s resumed his voyage with Paula. His quest to accurately map the entire
world will continue. I set sail to map the world at the request of Mercator. 
But I soon found another quest,  when I met a young girl at a port,  named
Paula.  I was moved by her plea for help  and decided to help find her

Oh, please, wait a minute! Can you please take me on your ship?

I'll swear to the ocean, that  I never forgot the original purpose of my
journey.  But it was hard to see her face,  so hopeful before we reached a new
port, so disappointed afterwards.  It seemed that her homeland had vanished off
the face of the earth!  Where in the world could she be from...?

We haven't had much luck finding Paula's homeland, have we? We've been to
almost every harbor in the world.

I'm sorry I've caused you so much trouble.

Why, its no trouble at all! But if we can, we just want to find it for you as
quickly as possible.


But even if we don't, ye needn't fret. The Captain here said that if he could,
he'd like to stay with ye forever.

D..Don't say silly things like that! Paula will misunderstand.

Zipangu that Hans had dreamed of  turned out to be no golden country.  But I
wasn't disappointed  because we finally got a clue  to Paula's homeland.

Yes, I remember, there was an ocean... an ocean, but strange. It wasn't blue.

Not blue? What do you mean?

It was muddy. Yellowish... a yellow sea!

It was as if her homeland was long waiting  for her return  because it had a
wonderful gift for her;  her family.  I'm so happy to have helped her see her
lifelong wish come true. This building... It may be natural for a man and woman
 who went through times of happiness and hardships together  to fall in love! 
{Would you like to go on a voyage with me, again?}, I asked.  Her smile was all
the answer I needed. Salim and I fixed up the fated ship that washed ashore 
and decided to go into the trading business.  We had no money to start with,
but I  persuaded the townspeople with my promises of  a tenfold return of their
investment!  An expensive promise, but I was feeling lucky. I knew I was on to
something big.

See, I knew you'd work something out. But what did you mean by starting a
business? What have you got in mind?

Why, trade of course, you simpleton. What other business would you do by ship?

It turned out I had quite a knack for trading.  Before I knew it, my gold had
multiplied.  I repaid all my debts. Nothing could stop me now.  I was ready to
make my fortune.

Thank you! Smooch!

Wow... At the cafe in the port of Basra,  I finally found my sister, Sapha. 
Even though she couldn't accept me as her brother at first,  I knew that some
day she would...

I knew it was you, Sapha! It's me, your older brother, %s %s!

This is all too sudden... I'm not sure if I can trust you.

I'm a lucky guy. Just as I grew tired of  business, of thinking about profits
day and night,  I found a new cause to devote myself to - my orphanage.  The
smile of these orphans when I give them a home shines a light of hope to guide
us through this crazy world.  They've given my life new meaning.

OK then. Rustem, from now on you're one of the family. Let's set sail for home.
Istanbul, here we come!

Ladia... aren't you coming?

Who? Me?

Of course you. And... well... what would you say to moving in with us?

%s, is that... a proposal?

The seven seas were full of dangers -  pirates, storms,  and sea monsters.  Not
every mate  had the mettle to  overcome the obstacles.  But you, with  your
courage, wit, and strength  of heart, have bested even the  worst of foes. The
tale of  your voyage will be told for years to come.

Master! Master! Where'd ye run off to this time? He always disappears so
quickly... (grumble-grumble)

If he finds me, he'll lecture me forever... I think I'll head over to the cafe,
I haven't been there in a while.

Oh, hello.

Um, goodbye.

I wonder what's the matter with Emilio?

Oh, I thought you'd be here. Sir Gilbert has been looking all over for you.
Would you go to the palace? It seems the King wants to see you.

Righto. I was just on my way over there.

Well, let's go then. ... He must be at the cafe.

Hello, professor. This is lucky, my bumping into you.

Hello there. Why? Do you have a question from geography class? Why professor,
your lectures are so clearly presented that your classes are every student's
favorite. Of course I don't have any questions for class.  It's just that Mr.
Mercator is looking for you.

Hmmm, I wonder why. I'd better go and find out now. See you later.

The jobs from the Guild haven't helped me to make even a dent in my debts... I
wonder when Camillo will give me an answer.

Can't you repay your debt yet?

Sorry, give me a little more time.

When can you repay your debt?

Sorry, I don't have any money with me.

When will you repay your debt?!!! Or did you cheat me out of my life savings?!

I can't deal with this. The harbor will give me shelter.

Hey, do you know any ways to get rich quick?

If I knew, I wouldn't be wandering the streets of Istanbul.

Ha, ha, ain't that the truth. By the way, I saw your friend, Salim. He looked
pretty gloomy. He was headed toward the shipyard at the southeast end of town.
I wonder what's the matter with him?

I don't know.

Why don't you go to see him?

I'll do that, after I see Ladia in the cafe first.

You're still crazy about her, eh? She'd never be interested in someone like

Aw, why don't you mind your own business!

The enemy's commodore proposed a duel.

What's the matter, sir... Er... I mean... , ... sir - why'd you leave?

Please don't call me  !  I don't feel comfortable, hearing you say that.

Aye, it makes me feel strange, as well. I guess I'm just not used to it.

Well then, you can just call me commodore like you did before.

Yes, sir. ...

I don't want you to call me sir, either.

Shiver me timbers, I'm sorry, %s. But Commodore suits ye well, now that ye've
become a real seaman. It's been %d long %s of voyaging at sea... year years
Have ye grown weary of it? Are ye thinking of quitting?

Commodore, the ships are ready to sail.

Rocco, my quest will not be over as long as there is adventure to be found!  We
can't settle down yet.

Everyone, load the supplies and cargo! We'll set sail at sunrise tomorrow!!

What's the matter,  ?

Don't make fun of me, Emilio. I'm not up to the rank.

Oh, excuse me, fearful Queen of Pirates, Commodore %s.

Stop teasing me. You know, it's been a long time since we left the Spanish
Navy. About a year. About %d years. I enjoy traveling the world on my own.


Strange to say, when I was out on the seas, I almost forgot   about my brother
and Hernan.

Don't feel guilty. Time heals your sorrow. That's how you move on.

Commodore, when will we set sail?

I'll sail again, not to forget, but to overcome my sorrow.

We'll leave early tomorrow. I'm so glad I came along with you, Commodore. I've
become one of the henchmen  of a %s.

Oh, stop it, Matthew. You make it sound like we're pirates!  You're not a
henchman, just oh, my assistant!

Henchman, assistant, give me a break!  I was just teasing. You always take
things too seriously.

Well, I am navy officer,  and I must always uphold  the honor of the %s Navy.

Of course, that's one of the many reasons  why I respect you as my fearless

Whatever you say, Matthew! Look! Here comes the crew.

Commodore, we're ready to sail.

All right. We'll cast off first thing tomorrow morning.

While in town, make sure you always behave as a proud  sailor of the %s Navy.

See you on board.

You have earned the rank of %s.

Maybe, but I'm still just a simple geographer who loves adventure.

Of course, but Paula will be the  wife of a %s.

Stop kidding, Hans! Paula might hear you!

So what? I know you both like each other!

Commodore, the ships are ready! We can sail now.

All right. We'll set sail tomorrow morning.

Well, well... It's just too funny, to think  that I'm a %s now.

You got that one right! What a joke!

Hey, you don't have to be so quick to agree with me! After all, I am  .

Oh, come on! You know it's kind of ironic, a rascal like you holding such an
important title.

I know... Well, to someone like you who values treasures over rank and fame, 
being a %s probably doesn't mean that much.

You're right, Camillo. To me, searching for lost treasures  is definitely a lot
more exciting than being a %s. But there are two things  that are even more
important to me. They are...

Commodore, we're ready. When are we heading out?

They are the open sea and high adventure.

We'll leave tomorrow morning, men. Get ready for our next journey!

While working hard to earn wealth,  you've also earned the rank of %s...

%s, you are really something. You know, this rank wasn't given just to me,  but
to all of us, you and the others who believed in me.

Oh, you're so modest you deserve another promotion! Few men attribute their
success to their followers.

My success is truly the result of our teamwork. Without it,  I couldn't have

Which country do you want information about?

Sorry, no gold, no information!

Thank you for choosing Marco Polo Bank.

We don't have any used ships in stock.

Ye don't have a mate to navigate another ship.

Do ye want to swap one of the ships in yer fleet for this one?

NOTE: Look here for ship descriptions.

This one was popular in Lisbon - about 100 years ago! However, it's very easy
to maneuver.

This classic vessel was first built about two centuries ago. Unfortunately, it
doesn't stack up to today's ships.

This durable craft's shallow hull makes it easy to maneuver, but its cargo
capacity is limited. It's large and durable, but I wouldn't use it on the open

It used to be popular in Venice, as even the smallest crew can navigate it with

This is a well-balanced lateen ship. It's perfect for a novice sailor.

This one is easy to handle and makes for smooth sailing over the ocean.

This may be a bit expensive, but it's worth the cost when trading around
coastal seas.

This is a mid-size ship with a large cargo space. It's easy to maneuver and
suitable for adventurous voyages.

This large trading ship is for the experienced navigator.

This is a battleship, but it's also useful for trading if its payload is kept
low. Not for the unseasoned sailor.

For such a large ship, this is quite easy to maneuver. I highly recommend it.

It's quite durable for its size. Ye can even use it when fighting pirates if ye
maneuver it carefully.

A small, high-performance sailing ship. It has the capacity to carry guns for

We are proud of this great ship. It combines the storage capacity of a galleon
with the mobility of a caravel. A true work of art!

Only a few shipyards have the ability to build this ship. Ye'll never regret
buying it.

This is the ultimate ship, but it's only for highly skilled navigators.

Well, this is the only type of ship built in China.

This small ship can't withstand rough waves, so it's pretty useless on the high

This ship isn't bad. Just remember the payload is high...

No other ship can overcome this floating bastion in close combat.  Galleys are
normally battleships, but this one is fast enough to be used for trading, as

This huge rowing ship is armored with steel, and has space for lots of guns.

This ship was made for many Japanese warlords. Ye may want to own one, too.

This is only a mid-sized ship. I don't think ye can make it home in this one.

Will ye buy this one? I'd sell this ship for %ld gold pieces.

What do ye say?

Then how much are ye willing to spend?

I think he'll accept as low as %ld gold pieces.

Get out of here, ye landlubber! Don't ye know the real value of a ship? I can't
accept that price.

All right, it's yers. Time to name yer ship.

Which one is for sale?

Is this ship OK?

If you are looking for %s,  I heard some traders saying it's sold in %s.

This ship's already in tiptop shape, matey!

Hmmm, it'll cost ye %u gold pieces to fix this ship. What do ye say?

Have it your way, but I really think you should have it fixed now.

We don't have enough gold.

We only have the flag ship. This is your flag ship. Do you still want to sell?
Then, select a new flag ship, mate.

There is still some cargo left on that ship. Sell it anyway?

There is still crew aboard that ship. Is it OK to dismiss them?

For this ship, I'll give you %ld gold pieces. OK?

As you wish.

There are no fleets in sight.

I am %s of %s.

We only have one ship.

Which ship will be the ship #%d?

Is this OK?

You don't have to worry about my wages. I like working for you!

How much will my new wages be?

What are %s's new wages?

Thank you very much.

I'm not very happy with such low wages.

There are no fleets to gossip with.

You haven't selected the ship you'll command.

%s is a captain. You can't appoint him as %s.

%s was appointed as %s.

You have no mates.

How many men will you assign to %s ship?

We will dismiss %d %s. Is this OK?

Is it OK to end the transfer process?

You can't get rid of your flagship.

Transfer your Commodore to another ship.

Is it OK to get rid of %s?

May I help you?

It seems you have no gold.

You already have the maximum of 20 items. You'll have to sell one first.

I'm sure you'll find something you like.

I'm afraid you don't have enough gold.

The %s will cost you  gold pieces.

Are you interested in anything else?

You don't have any items.

What would you like to sell?

I'd like to take that %s off your hands.

OK, I give in.  I'll take it for %ld gold pieces.

What else can you sell me?

You? Get out! You're not welcome here! I never want to see your face again!

Hey there, your ship's all ready to go!

We don't build new ships here.

Ho, you can afford a new ship?

Will you order this model?

What kind of hull?

Is this OK?

This one will cost you %ld gold pieces. Is it a deal?

OK, I'll start building ye a mighty fine vessel! How many bunks for the crew?
Make space for how many guns? Is this OK?

Your ship isn't ready yet. Come back in %d day%s.

It will take %d days to build your ship. Do you want to add it to your fleet

I'll keep the ship in the dock. Go there when you need it.

I'll keep it for a while, then.

We have a great selection today.

Which ship will ye like to fit with a nice figurehead?

What type are ye interested in?

It will cost ye %ld gold pieces. Is this a deal?

Load guns onto which ship?

How many guns? %d %ss will cost ye %ld gold pieces. Is this OK?

Which ship? It will cost ye %d gold pieces to change the cargo capacity. Is
this OK?

Then give it a new name.

We are now keeping %d of your ships in the dock.

We aren't storing any of your ships in the dock right now.

We can keep up to %d of your ships.

But Commodore, we only have the flagship. We won't be able to sail anywhere if
we put it in storage!

Which ship shall we keep in the dock for you?

There are %d men on the ship. Is it OK to dismiss them?

You don't have to worry, we'll keep a close eye on your ship.

We don't have any of your ships in our dock.

Which ship will you put back into commission?

You don't have a mate to command another ship.

Alright then, we'll get your ship ready to go!

OK, we will exchange your ships.

Sorry, but our dock is full.

It's time to go to bed.

Uh? Who is it?

It's me. Open the door.

Oh, %s!

I would like to talk to you. I was just thinking about you.

Come in. Did you want to see me again?

I have investigated that matter for you.

I was looking forward to seeing you.

I can tell you haven't discovered anything more than the end of your nose.

Wow, that's so exciting!  It's beautiful!  It must have been quite a sight to

Did it bite you?

What an interesting plant!

I wonder what kind of people lived there, long ago.

Weren't you scared?

I wish I could go there, and see that.

Oh, I am so happy!

Do I look pretty?

It's very shiny, and quite pretty. Thank you so much!

This is my gift.

MM... Smack!

It seems a girl called %s is in love with you. Continue your effort, and your

Take actions. No one gained love by just waiting for it to happen.

As long as you are in this port, you won't have good luck in love.

The sound of female voices singing seemed to slowly approach the ship from the
distant waves.  The sweet, bewitching melody enticed many sailors to fling
themselves into the ocean.

A giant eye peeked between the waves. Suddenly a tentacle emerged and tried to
drag some of the crew into the ocean. Fortunately, the ship and crew remained
unharmed, but the captain and the mates were overcome with terror.

In the midst of a dense fog, the squeaking noise of the rigging broke the
ominous silence. When the fog finally cleared away, one of the ships had

A giant black manta ray was cruising beneath the ship. When a sailor plunged a
board into its open mouth, the monster quickly turned away.

As we looked up to the mast there was a strange phosphorescent light around the
sail and rigging. We survived! It's a miracle!

A flaming bird flew into our fleet.  There was no time to avoid it. The last
ship of the fleet caught on fire.

All of a sudden an enormous tornado appeared on the horizon, and swallowed our
fleet. To save the ships, we had no choice but to throw all our cargo into the

With a clap of thunder a huge dragon appeared and crossed by the stern of our
flagship. Many members of the frightened crew were suddenly struck by a
mysterious illness.

A number of whirlpools swelled and turned into huge spouts. Giant whales!!
Stunned, we could do nothing to stop the whales from capsizing the ship in the
rear of our fleet.

A ship with broken masts and decayed sails approached us soundlessly. No one
was on board, but we heard the sound of sobbing as it passed by.

We can't carry any more gold.

It was a red-haired female pirate,  Catalina Errantzo, who saved Prince Alberto
and myself  from that evil pirate, Kahn.  But she turned out that she was
really after me.  Only with Rocco's quick thinking and cunning subterfuge did
we manage  to escape.

I am %s %s. As thanks, I'll have to play a tune for you on my lute.

Oh, what have I done? I must have been out of my mind. I can't believe I saved
a %s!

Halt! We know that the pirate Catalina is in there. We are the navy guard,
under orders from Commander Ezequiel. In the name of Spain, we arrest you for
crimes against the state.

At Massawa, I met the last descendent of the lost city of Atlantis, Tafari.
After our meeting, a fierce naval battled ensued, as I fought to protect
Massawa from the Turkish forces.

Wait, please. Meconbe, let us tell these gentlemen the truth. Don't you think
it's cruel to keep everything covered in secrecy?  Both cruel to us and to
these men here.

At the port of Nagasaki, Enrico finally had to leave us.  After so many voyages
together, it was sad to part.  But we wished him good luck with a smile,  as he
was excited about beginning his studies in the land of Zipangu. I have much to
learn and teach. I'm excited, but also sad to part with such good friends. 
Please take care, and have a safe trip.

With the help of Catalina, I rescued Lucia from the clutches of evil pirates.
After that, I decided to cooperate with Catalina  and Commander Ezequiel's
Fleet to stop  Martinez's evil scheme.

%s, I'll take care of these hoodlums, so take this opportunity and save Lucia!

Thanks, Catalina. I owe you one!

At Lisbon, we were welcomed  by the enthusiastic cheers of the crowd.  It seems
my father finally acknowledged  that I am an experienced seafarer.

I get the feeling that you're a newcomer to the trade business. I can give you
a pointer or two, if you'd like.

You're wise to listen. Here are a few things you should always remember. The
cardinal rule of trading is to buy low and sell high. You want to make a big
profit, of course! I have a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to trading.
First, find out the specialty of the area. Specialty goods are produced in high
volume, so they're usually cheap. Although you're a greenhorn, play it cool and
say NO to the first price presented by us merchants. Maybe I'll offer you a
lower price. That means a bigger profit! Finally, don't fill up your hull with
goods if you don't have enough food and water on board. Smart traders always
restock food and water as soon as they dock at the harbor. This way, they don't
have to worry about it when they trade. There's nothing more foolish than
throwing away goods you just bought to make room to load food and water. I hope
these tips will help you. Don't forget to keep your eyes and ears open in town.
Some of the people you meet on the street may be experts in trade.

Well, pardon me. I shouldn't meddle in your business.

Ahoy there, swabbie! Maybe I'm wrong, but ye has the look of an unseasoned
sailor. If ye'd like, I can teach ye the ins and outs of commanding a ship.

Then hear me words as I tell ye the secrets of smooth sailing. First, ye need a
hearty crew to handle the ship. Ye can find and hire some able-bodied seamen in
a cafe. Next, ye need good supply of food and water for yer crew.  Ye can get
food and water at a harbor. Lastly, ye need a captain for each ship. Ye'll be
at the helm of your flagship, of course. But if ye have ships besides yer
flagship in yer fleet, ye'll need a captain to steer each of those. So ye may
want to start looking in cafes and lodges for trustworthy mates to sail with
ye. In short, as long as ye have crew, supplies, and captains,  it'll be smooth
sailing. Aye, it's as easy as shooting fish in a barrel!

Well, sorry, I was just wondering if ye needed some advice.

Ye don't know much about ships, eh? This old sea dog's navigated the waters for
over 40 years. I can give ye some advice. What do ye say, mate?

All right, then. First of all, ye must decide whether to build a new ship or
buy a used ship. A new ship will be custom-built to please ye. The model, its
materials, equipment and everything will be just as ye demand. But building a
vessel is an expensive and time-consuming task. Although ye may not find the
ideal vessel, ye may want to opt to buy a used ship. They're less expensive and
ready to use! Either way, with ye own ship, ye'll be a true limey! But to get
back to the story, the model of the ship determines its capacity. Ships that
hold a large crew and many guns will have limited cargo space. If ye want a
vast hull to carry many goods, keep minimum space for crew and guns. Remember
these things when ye buy a ship. Good luck!

Hmmph, ye young'uns don't appreciate advice from the old these days.

Are you the new kid in town? I've been wanting to meet you!

Ahh, I remember when I was your age.  Under this grey head of mine is a noggin
full of useful knowledge. Let me tell you about the guild.

Thank you. It won't take long. The guild is a place where you can get hired to
complete a mission for someone. Successful completion of a mission will not
only add to your gold but increase your fame, as well. If you fail to complete
your mission, you'll lose not only the reward but also your fame. So make sure
you're able before you promise to complete a mission!

You'll live to regret it if you don't learn to listen to your elders.

Well, you must be new here. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I know a
lot about seafarers. Would you be interested in my advice on ship crew?

I thought you would! Have you used the [Assign Crew] command yet? It's used to
assign your crew to the different tasks aboard ship. 'Navigation' is for ship
handling, 'Lookout' is for watching the horizon, and 'Combat' is for battles.
That's all you need to know. Assign your crew according to your objective.
Isn't it easy?

Well, that's too bad. I guess my help isn't good enough for you.

Before we talk about a contract, let me make sure you understand all there is
to know about searching for an item. First of all, the rare things I want
information about are always near a village. So if you discover a village, be
sure to land there and 'Search'. If you can't find anything, 'Entertain' the
villagers. They may help you 'Search' for something interesting. If they don't
respond immediately, be persistent. Entertain them two or three times. As their
'Friendliness' goes up, you'll have a better chance of finding something
incredible. The effort it takes to gain the villager's trust is sometimes very
worthwhile. But of course, you're already quite an adventurer! You know, you
don't always need a large crew. You really only need enough men to move your
ship forward. A ship's speed depends not only on its type, but also on the
number of crew and the captain's ability in navigation. When you don't have
enough crew assigned for navigation, its number will be shown in red.

Only fleets that have a first mate with the skill of [Celestial Navigation] can
use the [Auto Sail] command. It's a good idea to assign a person with
[Accounting Skills] to be your bookkeeper. When you need to recall something
important, open your journal. When you want to see a map, press the Start
button. It's convenient to use the [Auto Sail] command to sail to a port you
have visited before. You may want to use the [Assign Crew] command frequently.
When you complete a [Delivery] mission, your fame in trade will increase. When
you complete a [Pirate Hunting] mission, your fame in piracy will increase.
When you complete a [Transport] mission, your fame in trade will increase. The
place to hire crew is the cafe. You knew that, right? Did you also know that
you can hire crew only once a day?

A figurehead is not just for decoration. It will protect you from accidents and
monsters out on the high seas.

If you continually make investments on a port, it will eventually ally with
your home country. Your fame in trade will go up as well.

If you desperately need gold, you can borrow from a bank. There's no interest
if you repay the loan within the month.

If you want to get detailed information about the port you are in, go to a
lodge and ask.

If you have a tax-free permit, you can buy goods without tax. The permit is
issued in the palace.

If you have a letter of marque, your piracy will be considered a patriotic act
for your country.

The basic defensive tactics in a duel are [Parry] against [Thrust], [Block]
against [Lash], and [Dodge] against [Strike]. The basic offensive tactics in a
duel are [Strike] against [Parry], [Lash] against [Dodge], and [Thrust] against

Some specialty goods are not put on the market until the [Economy] of the port
reaches a certain level.

Success in a duel depends on the action you select and the strength value of
the action.

The quality of your arms and armor will determine your success in a duel.

To find latitude and longitude, you must have a measuring instrument and
someone who has [Celestial Navigation] skills.

I heard that you may find something interesting if you [Search] in a [Village].

Did you know that the way the winds affect sailing depends on the type of ship?

If you are short of crew, use the [Assign Crew] command and increase the ratio
for [Navigation].

To prepare for a battle, increase the ratio of your crew for [Combat] by using
the [Assign Crew] command.

If you increase the ratio of crew assigned to [Lookout], it will be easier to
find ports and villages. Changing how much [Rations] you give to your crew will
affect their [Condition]. 90% is the average.

Give an inexperienced navigator on the job training, and assign him to be the
chief navigator. His skills will improve quickly!

The [Rearrange] command will determine the initial location of ships in a
battle and the order of turns.

If you complete a [Debt Collection] mission, your fame in both piracy and
adventure will increase!

If you don't know what to do next, visit a fortune teller and ask her about
your life.

I heard that [Studying] at the Round Earth Society gives you that extra
something to help you through tight spots.

Make sure your mates know how much you appreciate them - don't scrimp on their
[Wages]! Underpaid mates can't help but feel disloyal.

Trading Glass Beads from Amsterdam with Ivory from Timbuktu is very profitable.

It's a good idea to trade Iron Ore from Kaffa with Art from Athens.

Iron Ore from Cairo and Amber from Aden are a good trade.

If you want to know the best trade route, it's exchanging Carpet from Istanbul
with Art from Athens.

A really simple yet profitable trade route exchanges Dye from Ragusa with
Glassware from Venice.

May I help you?

Come to think of it, you're still kind of a beginner in trade.

Hello. How are ye? By the way, ye still haven't learned all the ropes of
sailing, right?

Hey there, welcome! It seems ye still don't know much about ships.

Oh, it's you, %s %s! I was a little bored here.

Welcome. Oh, it's you, sir %s %s! To thank you for your patronage, I'd like to
share with you some wisdom on managing a crew. Are you interested?

If you defect to serve our country, you may not be able to achieve your goal.

Would that be OK?

We should hire crew in the cafe.

By the way, don't forget to hire crew in a cafe.

To tell you the truth, I don't know much about %s. But, I assume it's somewhere
around there on your map.

Before we discuss a contract, let me make sure you understand all there is to
know about searching for rare things. First, items that I am looking for are
always in a village. So if you discover a village, be sure to [Go Ashore] and
[Search] for an item. If you can't find anything, [Entertain] the villagers.
They may help you 'Search' for something interesting. If they don't respond
immediately, be persistent. Entertain them two or three times. As their
[Friendliness] goes up, you'll have a better chance of finding an item. The
effort it takes to gain the villager's trust is sometimes very worthwhile. But
of course, you already know what we are looking for already.
Remember that you must equip yourself with them, or else they will be useless!
Entertain people in the village if you don't find anything.
