Mission Notes

After meeting with your main career contact, she will tell you that her associate was successful in his search for pirates willing to help you investigate the attacks on Trade Union convoys. She suggests you with them aboard your ship and explain what you have in mind.

This first part takes place on an instanced version of your ship. Talk to the pirates in your cabin to send them on their way, then leave via the door. Next you will have to see a business associate of your main contact in another port. He engages you to deliver a cargo of medicine to the Dutch island of Bonaire in New Granada. An outbreak of some virulent, unknown disease has forced the Dutch Navy to cordon off the place, but his brother is trapped on the island -- he's therefore willing to pay you quite well to break the quarantine.

When you first reach Bonaire, the town seems deserted. Just inside, to the right, is Willem Schmilder, prince of the town. Talk to him. Afterward, go into the jungle (the entrance is just to the right of Willem). It is the standard jungle map. Go toward the beach and you'll find your contact's brother. Talk to him, and he and two other villagers will attack you. They are shambling and growling, and the implication is that they have somehow become zombies. All enemies in this part of the mission are level 40 as well. They have very high hitpoints but only 1 balance each and are easy to defeat. Defeat them, and then leave the zone and return to the town. There you'll find some guards - talk to them. After speaking to the guards, more villagers will appear to fight. Fight your way back to your boat and leave the town. You can claim your reward from the man who sent you to Bonaire.
