Prologue - The Journey Begins
Delayed a half-century from the Italian peninsula, the large Western European country of France was finally entering the period of the Renaissance. It was here in the port city of Marseilles along France's southern coast that <Player>'s journey as a sailor would begin.
Chapter 1 - A Fascinating Smile
Event Trigger - Random encounter when you're entering Marseille (50 fame required?). Event requires clicking through the dialogue. Player choices will not affect the outcome.
One calm early afternoon, a man was frantically searching for somebody down at the port in Marseilles. In search of a Huguenot extremist, he suddenly collapsed in front of <Player> and stopped breathing. Suddenly, the area was swarming with a mass of people, and the town police were at the scene. The police captain suspected that <Player>, the last person to see the man alive, was guilty of murder and moved to make an arrest. However, a handsome young man made a gallant entrance and pointed out some spots that had appeared on the body that the victim had been poisoned and found what appeared to be the murder weapon, a ring with an attached poison needle. Completely embarrassed, the police captain ordered his men to search for the owner of the ring and immediately left the scene.
There was a young man who praised the calm and cool nature of <Player>, who was never affected by even the slightest insult. The man's name was Julien Clarence. Known throughout Paris as the "Court Favourite", he was a famous treasure hunter.
Then, a one-eyed monk appeared and asked what all of the commotion was about. A fascinated smile came to Julien's lips as he answered, "There is a poor little lamb that has collapsed here..." The monk, Augustino, prayed quietly for the departed soul. Julien told <Player> that if anything happened, to come to the church in the square where they were staying, and then he left.
As the people gathered there watched him walk away, they whispered amongst themselves that the reason he acted so normal around dead bodies was because he grew up in the Court, which was surrounded by murder and conspiracy on a daily basis.
Chapter 2 - The Cage Countess
Event Trigger - A few days later. Upon returning to Marseille. A group of NPCs with exclamation marks on their heads, by the Craftsman.
One day on a street corner in Marseilles, <Player> came across a merchant who was crying to an official that he was unable to pay his taxes. Just then, a young woman appeared and threatened that if he was unable to pay his taxes again, his entire family would be thrown in prison.
Her name was Countess De Broglie. A person of great power and influence in the city, she often levied heavy taxes on the people. In addition, if anybody dared to speak out against her, she would have them thrown in the dungeon of Chateau d'If along the Marseilles coast, leading the people to secretly refer to her as the "Cage Countess" as they lived in fear of her.
Unable to even borrow money from anybody, the merchant figured that Julien, who did business with the various nobles in Paris, must have money and approached <Player> to ask for an introduction. (Note: Augustine can be found inside the Church in Marseille)
Augustino heard the merchant's complaint on behalf of Julien but declined, stating that Julien actually did not have that much money. However, once the talk turned to the fact the countess was an art collector, Julien appeared out of nowhere.
Julien suspect that the Cage Countess was the one in possession of 'that thing' and promised to provide the merchant with some money.
He asked the merchantand Augustino to tell the Countess De Broglie and other art-loving noblewomen that a rather large piece would be made available before too long. And to the sailor, <Player>, he asked to go to Genoa together in order to help him purchase a piece of art.
Upon arriving in Genoa, <Player> went to visit the art dealer living in the mansion facing the square.
The art dealer warmly greeted Julien who was a regular customer. The dealer picked out various items he recommended. However, Julien was only interested purchasing cheap items that were not worth anything. Even when the art dealer tried to stop him, he insisted it was what he wanted and continued on.
Once he finished loading the art onto <Player>'s ship, he requested they return to Marsielles.

Chapter 5 - The Devil's Shadow
[Location: Beside the Market] Several days later, (Player) heard a rumour that the Countess De Broglie had been prosecuted due to an accusatory letter that had been posted in a Paris court.
The Countess had apparently given a large sum of money to Huguenot. The Huguenot were popular amongst the merchants and were trying to reform the church, calling themselves Protestants.
The Countess was linked to the more extremist members of the group who destroyed churches and performed other such acts. With the citizens bitter towards the Countess, with this incident, she simply said to throw her in jail and laughed.
Then, an official appeared and informed (Player) to come to the Imperial Villa. Adamant that the contents of the accusation letter were not based in fact, the Countess demanded to see proof of her guilt.
Within the imperial villa, Julien was called. The judge for her case was the leader of the anti-Huguenot movement, the Duke of Guise.
The Countess was brought before the court and the questioning began.
Within the accusatory letter, it said that the Countess had paid a total of 5 million ducats to the Huguenot.
In addition, it said she promised to assist them when they invaded.
The Countess objected, saying she had paid those 5 million ducats to purchase pieces of art that Julien had been selling.
However, Julien denied that he had received any money.
The Countess knew that Julien was trying to set her up and tried to retaliate.
She demanded that (Player) testify.
Just when (Player) was about ready to reply, a messenger came to the Imperial Villa.
A letter that appeared to be from the extremists had been found at the Countess's mansion.
Within the letter, it was written that in exchange for supplying the money, she received a necklace in exchange.
The Countess complained that she had never received a letter and that she had received the necklace from Julien.
However, on the necklace was engraved the following message, To the protector of our true God, Countess De Broglie. Having no evidence in her favor, she was sentenced to the prison at Chateau d'If. Having successfully ensnared the Countess, Julien thanks the Duke of Guise warmly and left the room.
At the Countess's mansion, citizens that heard she had been arrested began to push their way in in order to reclaim the treasures she had taken. The citizens somewhat forced (Player) down into the underground vault.
However, somebody was already in there.
“...They....must have been waiting.....” they said.
However, when the citizens noticed the person's presence it unexpectedly disappeared. The citizens feared it was some kind of ghost.
Then, a police officer that had seized the mansion came and ordered the group to leave.
Chapter 6 - A Heartless Encounter
Event Trigger: 30 days at sea [Location: Marseille Tavern]
Citizen: "Hey...Is it true? Did the Cage Countess really break out of prison?"
Merchant: "Yeah, that's what they're saying."
Citizen: "My gosh. I never thought she'd really do it..."
Merchant: "Have you heard about the Countess's breakout?"
Choice responses: 1) Ask for details 2) Don't ask anything.
Merchant: "Well, the rumours say that the morning after she was thrown in Chateau d'If, the Countess was nowhere to be seen. Since she'd built it herself, she probably knew where every single hidden exit was.
On top of that, they also say she stole the battleship that her thugs had docked in the harbour.
Those navy boys must have been livid."
Merchant: "You don't suppose the Countess will come back and attack this city with the battleship, do you?"
[Location: Tavern Entrance]
Voice: "You must be (player) the Voyager."
Soldier: "The Duke of Guise is looking for you. Come to the imperial villa right away."
[Location: Imperial Villa Entrance]
Guard: "The Duke of Guise awaits you inside."
[Location: Imperial Villa]
Duke of Guise: "Welcome, (player). I am sure you have heard the rumours of the Countess's escape from Chateau d'If. Indeed, she has escaped with her subordinates and made off with three new and powerful galleys.
The troops that have been stationed here are already in hot pursuit, but I'm afraid we lack firepower. That is why I would like to ask you, as a Voyager well known to this city, to assist in her pursuit. How about it?"
Choice responses: 1) Take on the request. 2) I'm afraid I cannot.
Duke of Guise: "I see, how unfortunate..."
Duke of Guise: "Very good. The fleet that the Countess stole is currently on their way to Gibraltar. They are no doubt heading north to the Huguenot base in the Netherlands. I would like you to work together with the navy currently pursuing her and assist in her capture. If she resists arrest, you are free to sink her fleet. Good luck, (player)."
Duke of Guise: "I would like you to assist in the pursuit of the fugitive Countess. Will you accept?"
Duke of Guise: "Is there still something you wish to say to me?"
Choice responses: 1) Actually, the truth of the Countess is... 2) No.
Duke of Guise: "...Oh ho. Do you have something you wish to add to her case?"
Choice responses: 1) Talk about Julien's plot. 2) Don't say anything.
Duke of Guise: "Hmm. So you say that the famous Julien Clarence plotted to frame the Countess...That's a very interesting story...But, even if it's true, what benefit is there to revealing it now? The Countess must be taken care of, even if it is for nothing else than to show the Huguenots that we will not tolerate them. Just to be safe, I will investigate Julien Clarence on my own. All you have to do is help ensure that the Countess is found."
Duke of Guise: "...? Okay then, good luck to you."
The countess' fleet is outside of Bordeaux. After the battle head back inside the port at Bordeaux. You'll be asked to find the countess. She is located in the alley in the northern part of the town.
