Bullion

You all pause for a second, peering down into the depths of a shipwreck washed up on the shore of the next island.

“According to the manuscripts, this ship was the transport to Avalon,” Drake grunts, as the three of you heave a large chest out of the wreckage. “It must have gotten shipwrecked here in the middle of one of its trips. There might be some Templar artifacts on board.”

Sully wipes his brow. “This had better be worth it.” He strikes the lock with a crowbar and it cracks open. In the chest you find… nothing.

The lock was still intact, so there’s no way anyone got to the wreckage first. But wait, what's this inscription you find at the bottom of the chest?

In the distance you see what looks like a flotilla of mercenaries heading your way. “Looks like our luck’s run out boys.” Sully says. There’s no time to lose.
