Eventually, you'll reach the Swordmaster's hut. Listen to the conversation between Carla the swordmaster and the shopkeeper. Afterwards, go fight Carla using the insults you learned from all the pirates on the world map. You have to successfully insult her 5 times. If you fail, repeat the process by going back to the store in the village and ringing the bell on the shopkeeper's table.

I will milk every last drop of blood How appropriate, you fight from your body. Do you want to a quick escape! First you'd better stop waving it like a feather duster! Yes there are, you just never learned them! Your Hemorrhoids are flaring up again, eh? Too bad no one's ever heard of you. And with that done, you've completed the first of the three challenges you set out to do! Nice job! And just think about it Getting the T-shirt of a hottie like Carla isn't something that happens every day in your life.

Head back to the Scumm Bar and boast about your deeds to the three important-looking pirates. Exit the woods, then re-enter the woods again. Now that you're oo back in the first area of the woods, use the Map that you bought back in town. It has directions written on it. Back - Left - Right - Left - Right - Back - Right - Left - Back '' Follow these directions back means UP , and you'll reach an area in which the music goes silent. In the right end of this area, there is a signpost with a message about the legendary treasure of Melee Island.

Read it, then use your Shovel on the "X" on the ground next to the signpost. Watch the cutscene, then prize the lord for the treasure you'll find. It's another Go tell the pirates about having completed this second challenge, then head over to the area where the church is. From the church you should continue to the left towards the manor in the distance.

There are some dogs barking outside of it, but they can easily be knocked out by combining your Stewed Meat with that Yellow Pedal you found in the forest! If you are having trouble combining the Yellow Petal with the meat, this can be done using the right trigger on the Xbox controller. Once the dogs are knocked out, head inside.

Open the first door you see and watch the sheriff follow you inside. After a lengthy cutscene, you realize that a File is needed to proceed. Exit the mansion, and enter the prison next to the church. Take them and give them to the prisoner and ask him for a file. He has none, but is willing to give you a Carrot Cake if you can get rid of the rats in the prison. Open the cake to reveal a [FILE]. Now manually save your game, then get back into the mansion and jump through the hole in the wall. Watch the cutscene which introduces you to Elaine, then try to exit the manor. The sheriff will throw Guybrush into the sea.

Once it pops you will die, so reload the savegame and proceed to the part where you are thrown into the sea again. Down under the sea, pick up the [IDOL], then wait for an old geezer to give you the message about Elaine being kidnapped. The geezer gives you a [NOTE] about the kidnapping, and whops, the whole game turns into a love story.

Read the note, then head for the Scumm Bar. Too bad there are no pirates The Three Trials When asked where you can get a ship for yourself, the cook will tell you to head for the shipyard. You can find it by going to the world map and accessing the "Lights" area in the eastern end. Stan will greet you at the entrance. This isn't possible, but Stan suggests hearing what the shopkeeper downtown has to say about things.

Better advice than none, right? The old fellow will go get a note to write on. Watch the safe as he opens it, and make sure to remember the combination. He'll leave you alone now, so go open the safe using the combination you just remembered a moment ago. You will be using the "Push" and "Pull" commands to move the handle left and right. This is all we need for now, so rush back to Stan at the "Lights" shipyard. If he declines, try to leave, and he will call you back. Now you can offer Pieces of Eight again, and he'll agree to sell the ship for With this out of the way, we need 3 crew members.

Go to her hut and ask her to join. Simple as that. Next up is Otis, the guy in the prison. On your way to the prison, another cutscene will trigger, and reveal more about LeChuck.. And by "more".. I mean He's actually someone you've met before. He'll agree to join your crew, but obviously, you've got to free him from prison. To free him from imprisonment, go to the Scumm Bar, and pick up a [MUG] from the table next to the cook.

Pick up the 4 remaining Mugs from the bar as well. While walking towards the prison, your Melting Mug will turn into a broken mug that you will have to use on an empty mug in your inventory before it gets destroyed. If you fail to do this some timing is required , you can repeat the process, as the mugs in the bar will re-appear after you leave. Only one member remaining now. The third crew member can be found at the "Island" in the northeastern part of the world map. Climb up the ladder at the Island entrance, and use the Chicken from the Voodoo Woman's house on the cable above you.

This lets you get to the other side of the water. Head inside the house on the island, and talk to Meathook. Continue talking to him, and open the door that Meathook leads you to. Touch the bird inside. With all 3 members recruited, go back to the Scumm Bar to meet the crew in full. Talk to them to end this chapter of the game.

You still have three left, so don't sulk. Fetch it, then get back downstairs. Go down the hatch located behind the mast, then proceed straight down the next hatch as well. Down here is the storage area you will see some walls almost cracking against the seawater. Grab it and head then open the chest in the lower right end of the room. That's all there is to do down in the storage room, so head back up the ladder. Now enter the door with the blue light coming from it to reach the kitchen. Look more closely at the paper to reveal a recipe.

You already have all of the ingredients, so let's get back to the kitchen and start cooking! Anyway, as you put the final item into the pot, Guybrush passes out on the Cinnamon Sticks floor, and several days pass. The other crewmembers do not seem to notice though. Jolly Roger Head upstairs once you're concios again, and you'll Ink see that the ship has arrived at Monkey Island.

That's the end of this The Journey Go into the jungle to access the world map, and head over to the upper left corner to find the "Fort". If you can't see the Fort, it's just above the tiny lake. Exit the fort, and go to the beach just south of here to find anohter [NOTE]. Out on the world map again, follow the river to the right until you can access the "River Fork". Grab it: Cross the river, climb the mountain and read the [NOTE] on the ground. Keep on climbing to reach the top of the moutnain and trigger another cutscene.

Next, once he has left, use the Spyglass. Guybrush will say that he can see his piece of junk ship from here. Head back down again to where you found the previous note. You will see that there is a catapult here. You can either push or pull it, and then use the Spyglass to determine what the catapult is currently aiming at either your ship or the tree on the beach.

You have to destroy the tree, but you can also aim at and destroy your ship. Doing so will result in an alternate ending to the game. So, aim at the tree and the ship if you want to , then head back up to the top, and push the rock on the ground down onto the catapult. Once that's done, head back to the catapult for anohter [NOTE].

Go back down to where you crossed the river again, and use the Gunpowder in your inventory on the dam. Then, use your Flint on your Cannonball to trigger a small explosion that creates a flood. Leave the beach again. After the cutscene and Note Head Rope Now, go to the Oars Climb one level down using the rope you just laid out, then use your second rope oo on the Sturdy Stump. This will allow you to reach the bottom of the area where some [OARS] are waiting for you.

Use these Oars on the Rowboat back at the beach. Get recipe: Go left to the mast and take the voodoo recipe tacked on pole.

Now use the cutlass on LeChuck. All paths lead to the same point.

    Once the exposition is at an end, head over to the Keelhauler Gazette office and chat with Nipperkin again to get more of the skinny on the news you're supposed to incite. Before moving on, I'd suggest taking a moment to familiarize yourself with the town. There's only a couple landmarks, so it shouldn't take you too long. I'm going to keep item collection relative to the specific task as much as possible, which should make it easier to skip around.

    That being said, the news stories are a bit intertwined, so keep an eye out for references. If this is your first time here, you'll be greeted by Reginald Van Winslow. Chat if you wish, unless you already have, then check out the clothesline. Examine the socks to find a membership card for Club Head back to said club and knock on the door. The next bit is out of your control, though hilarious. Once the scene ends, you'll have accomplished one of your objectives.

Now try to climb up the anchor chain. Van Winslow will toss hot coals at you, which sets the grease puddle on fire. Once the dock is smoldering, head past the glass blower and up into the jungle. If this is your first time here, you can wander around for a bit to familiarize yourself with the various landmarks if you wish.

    Otherwise, take the left-hand path. Head west from the pirate, then go west again. Near the western edge of this screen is a pile of bombs at the base of a tree. Pick them up and return to the dock. Use the bomb with the grease fire to light it. Jog to the clothesline and use the lit bomb with the Frilly Pink Underwear.

    Now scale the clothesline.

    This time when you're wheeled back to the dock, the bomb is taken to the ship. You are now the proud captain of the Screaming Narwhal. Take the path on the left and talk to the pirate in the clearing, one Juaquin D'oro. Work your way through the conversation options. Ask about the Porcelain Power Pirates, then ask how many he has left to find. Ask about Dark Ninja Dave to learn about the killer katana accessory. Now ask about the map and he'll hand it over. The last step here is to say "Look, it's Dark Ninja Dave!

    Examine the map. Here's a brief note about how this, and all subsequent maps, work. The picture at the start of the map is, perhaps obviously, the starting point of your trek. Each path in the jungle is accentuated by an animal sound. Simply follow all the animal sounds in order to complete this map. So head to the Well, which is north of D'oro. Use the map on the Wishing Well and the ground will shake, thus initiating the treasure hunting sequence. Now just follow the paths. This will lead you to the treasure! Or, perhaps more accurately, the spot where the treasure once was.

    Seems someone already unearthed it. Head back to town. Between Club 41 and the Gazette are barrels of ink. Take out the Pink Pajama Pierre action figure you acquired earlier and dip him in the ink. If you've already started the Bar Fight, there will be a shattered grogatini glass laying nearby left of the vats. One of the clearings is now selectable as "Buried Treasure. Head there and dump Dark Ninja Dave into the hole. After Guybrush buries him, head back to D'oro and talk to him.

    Tell him his map isn't a rip-off and Guybrush will lead him to the newly buried treasure. The map's pretty straightforward west north north north and shouldn't cause you too much of a headache. Once you arrive at the Creepy Shack simply knock on the door and utter the password which you won't know until you receive the map, but will know automatically if you have said map. Once you get the option to ask the Voodoo Lady for advice, ask her anything you wish. Your reaction to the negative response leads her to tell you about the Pox of LeChuck, as well as the only cure for the Pox: La Esponja Grande.

    She also hands you a locket, which you won't need until later chapters. Work your way through the rest of the options if you wish. Otherwise, exit the convo. Head to the left toward the exit. On the table in the foreground, next to the skull with a candle in it, is an Interesting Bottle. Pick it up to find out that it contains a scroll forged by the ancient Vaycaylian Race. The former inhabitants of the island enclosed in that document the secret to controlling the winds of Flotsam. Alas, it is currently sealed in an unbreakable bottle.

    Leave the shack and return to the village. Turns out the man's name is Hemlock McGee. It also turns out that he was the last one who used the scroll that's in the bottle. Ask him if he can help you with the winds, then ask him if you can see it. He'll tell you that it's in the Bottle you just procured and that you need the Eye of the Manatee to read it. Guybrush will want to borrow it but McGee wants to know why.

    Tell him that you want to investigate the winds and he'll hand it over. Great, now we have the scroll and the means with which to read it. If only we could open the bottle. To that end, head to the guy hawking glass unicorns and vowels, the man with the name Crimpdigit. Pull out the unbreakable bottle and show it to him. He'll pull out his unbreakable bottle breaker to demonstrate, but he won't let you have it. What we need is a distraction The winds will hook the cannonball back toward shore Feeling the urge to replenish his stock, he'llCrimpdigit will head inside the shop.

    Pick up the newly unattended bottle breaker and then combine it with the bottle to open it. Except your hand won't allow you to open it. Well, if the Voodoo Lady can't help you, perhaps a medical doctor can. Luckily, there happens to be one of those stationed in the mansion. A doctor known as the Marquis de Singe. Knock on his door and the odd sconce will fall off the wall.
