Chapter II[]

Having successfully broken the siege of Laurent, the heroes decide to head back to Valsena for further guidance. They board a ship from Palo to Beiser offering passage at no charge—but in an instant, all turns black as the heroes are knocked out cold.

As they come around, the party is spooked by screams of anguish and other odd noises coming from every angle. Though they should have been in Beiser some time ago, the party realizes that this is a ghost ship, and so resolve to investigate further in spite of the overwhelming sense of dread that grips them. Faerie notes the faint presence of other spirits aboard the vessel.

Four scattered tomes in the mid cabin must be placed on their shelves to open the way to the captain's quarters. There, they find a cursed ship's logbook and are soon met by Matelo, a supernatural enthusiast who also ended up on the ship. He, too, read the log and is now a ghost, much to his initial delight. However, he soon expresses displeasure with his undeath, and passes the curse to the nearest person he finds.

With one among them trapped by the captain's curse, the remaining pair heads for the deck to release him or her. An ominous shadow appears before them to issue a challenge. Gova confronts them and is defeated, releasing the Darkness elemental Shade.

Shade explains that he was cursed to wander the seas in this ghost ship for countless years prior to his release, but also that the Darkstone was not aboard the vessel. The Mana Stone itself was supposed to have been sealed in Mavolia after the battle with the Benevodons, but its energy is spilling out into the mortal realm and corrupting beings that come into contact with it, also increasing the number and ferocity of monsters in the world.

With the ward over Shade broken, the ship vanishes near Beuca Island. The heroes are left to drift ashore, but the fate of other living souls stranded aboard is left unknown.

Spoiler ends here.

No sightings.



  • In the 3D Remake the player can find two specific chests with lucre, one containing 666 lucre and the other 444 lucre, which both reference the paranormal/demonic activity in the Ghost Ship.
    • 666 is called the "number of the beast" in the Book of Revelation of the New Testament, and has become one of the most widely recognized symbols for the Antichrist or, alternatively, the devil.
    • In japanese culture there is a superstition about the number 4, because it is a homonym for "death" in japanese (shi; し).
