The Keepers of the Code Quest or Chapter 5 is a Story Quest that starts after completing Chapter 4 - Story Quest: The Headstone.


In his search for the mysterious and powerful Headstone, Captain Jack Sparrow has sent you to the hidden island of Bilgewater. It's home of the Keepers of the Code - a secret pirate society that not only enforces The Pirate Code for The Brethren Court, but also keeps watch for threats and strange happenings in the Caribbean. Having them as an ally would be a great boon to Jack's efforts and may tip the balance in the battle against Jolly Roger's Army of Undead and Cutler Beckett's Black Guard.

Game Events

After returning to Jack Sparrow, the player pirate reports on their progress trying to recover The Headstone, a magical relic that controls the power of the wind, among other things. However, things have hit a bit of an obstacle after the initial attempt.

Jack dispatches the pirate to the remote island of Bilgewater, the headquarters of a secret organization within the Brethren Court known as The Keepers of the Code. His ally there, Madam Bernadette, has sensed the coming danger and desires the help enlist The Keeper's aide in fighting off Jolly Roger and recovering The Headstone before he does.
