Rumor has it that a new, deadly force has been rising a dark army and forcing pirates to be slaves to this dark lord. Speak to Jack Sparrow to help with the search.
Talk to Jack Sparrow (500 Notoriety)
Old Jack says he saw a ghost threatening some pirates. If it's ghosts your wondering about, you best talk to Hector Barbossa.
Talk to Captain Barbossa (1,000 Notoriety)
You explain the situation to Barbossa. He says he can identify the ghost by gathering a few cursed items.
Defeat 15 Undead of any kind and recover some rags
Sink 15 Undead Ships of any kind and recover some cursed sails
Search Crates for Shrunken Heads
Loot a Cursed Coin from a buried treasure chest
Talk to Hector Barbossa (1,500 Notoriety)
Barbossa brings all the ingredients and a faint message appears. You now know a ghost called Foulberto Smasho is behind this.

Explore Cave of Lost Souls
Defeat Foulberto Smasho
Foulberto Smasho: You may have beaten me, pirate! But the Dark Lord has already stolen the Island Totems, and is ready to destroy the Caribbean and rise a dark empire! MUAHAHAHA!
Foulberto laughs in amusement until his spirit fades away ...
Talk to Jack Sparrow (5,000 Notoriety)
The case is cold. We are left with no clues on who is behind this. A Dark Lord you say? I think the Bartender here in Faithful Bride knows a tad bit about Dark Lords.
Talk to John Carver (500 Notoriety)
I won't speak a word about dark lords until my business is back up! Fetch me some rum and I'll think about talking.
Sink 15 Navy Ships of any kind and recover some rum

Ahh, its good to have money. Alright. Explain this "Dark Lord' to me. Hmm, stealing pirates and Ghost Minions? I think the best bet it is a ghost called Griminstro. Talk to Tia Dalma for more information.
Visit Tia Dalma (500 Notoriety)
Ahh ... yes, Griminstro. Once a fine man, a shame he went bad. He caused so much trouble and was so powerful, he was destroyed by the Voodoo Lords and came back as a Black Ghost similar to Foulberto Smasho. Missing pirates, you say? I have a theory on what he is up to. He is trapping powerful pirates and draining their powers for his own, so he can rule the Caribbean. First, you must travel to his small island and take back the Island Totems.
