False Arrest

Information based on version Current game version is

Through divine inspration, the Cardinal has come up with a sure way to get the Templars to reveal themselves. He is spreading rumors of an Inquisition treasure fleet heading back to Europe, and hopes that the Templars will sail straight into an ambush.

Mission Notes

You will first have to tell Mogens Brisebois in Tortuga about the Cardinal's latest plot. He proposes using this ambush to trap a rival group of pirates that are imitating the Templar's banking operation.

The main part of the mission is a large but straightforward sea battle against opponents between level 32 and 34. You will have five NPC allies to help you. The two groups will start within broadside range of each other, so be prepared to jump directly into the action.
