About the plot and the company.
The storyline includes 11 incredible stories called Tall Tales. And one of these stories is the adventures of the Golden Shores. This story is aimed at allowing players to get to know the Sea of Thieves better. And the story itself is considered the first novel of “Treasures of Athens” in Sea of Thieves.
You can take part in the adventure of the history of the “Golden Shores” in the “Tavern” at the “High Pirate”. Which can tell a lot of interesting things and tell you about the secrets of the mysterious islands.
In the process of passing the characters will meet with deadly traps and enemies who embody evil. And they will also be able to use unusual objects and get rich prey after solving ancient secrets. The most valuable are ancient artifacts and enchanted items.
To become the owner of ancient mining, you have to go on a dangerous adventure in search of a lost island. Many pirates know about the existence of the island, but do not believe in existence. Due to the fact that there are great difficulties on the way to it, and not everyone dared to go there.
Artifacts on the island are guarded by the “Great Skeletons”, which were enchanted to guard secret places. “Skeleton Lords” are very dangerous and resourceful, and some of them are also inventive. Entering the hostilities with them, you need to be well prepared.
Having passed and defeating dangerous skeletons, our characters can continue the path. And meet with other dangers that are set to protect artifacts from unwanted intrusions. These dangers are “Dangerous traps” and to pass them you need to be very careful and attentive.
The passage of the islands and the search for treasures is tuned in the way of random generations. Suppose if a player could not get to the desired treasures, then his next trip will be unique. That is, the traps that were installed earlier may already be in other places. And in the previous place when passing, there may be something else.
