Dispatch #2 Mission Version 2a (Updated 08.06.2012)
Mission created by Jeff Greene

This is a day of inspecting the USFS cabins north of Yes Bay Lodge. A USFS Ranger was commenting to a friend at Yes Bay that he would be doing all the inspections by himself today since his helper called in ill. You simply asked if you could ride along and help him with the inspections. Well it's called "YES" bay for a reason ... buckle up! We start out at the dock at the Yes Bay Lodge, then begin flying to the cabins one by one. At each cabin, we need to make sure the supplies listed for the cabin are in place, for those cabins where people are lodging, this is a good time to say "hello" and make sure they are OK. When done with each cabin inspection, move on to the next one on the route.

Sunrise Supply Run (Version 1.0)

Mission created by Brad Allen
Story by Brad Allen

This is a flight from Ketchikan Intl. Airport out to the Fleet Bay Parts Dock first and then on to the Hunter Bay Cannery. After those two deliveries are complete, you'll fly up the Klakas Inlet, across a small mountain pass and down into another Fjord on your way back to base at PAKT. Ketchikan's economy is based upon tourism and fishing, and the city is known as the "Salmon Capital of the World." The Misty Fjords National Monument is one of the area's major attractions. The Spanish explorer Jacinto Caamaño named the Gravina Islands group in 1792. George Vancouver applied the name to Gravina Island itself in 1793. The name honors Federico Carlos Gravina y Nápoli. Prince of Wales Island is one of the islands of the Alexander Archipelago in the Alaska Panhandle. It is the fourth-largest island in the United States.

Once you get there, enter the lodge and your next instructions will be revealed to you then.

Story by Brad Allen

After entering the Sewall Lodge, you are given a private message. It says that the local first nation people want to meet with you at a sacred tribal location called "Prayer Lake". Xavier, who runs the lodge, shows you a map of the location and you find out that it's a small and dangerous lake situated on the side of a mountain. You're still not entirely sure why they want to speak to you but based on your profession of ancient history, antiquities collection and archaeology, it must be something historical and important. Xavier has a floatplane waiting for you at the dock.

Objective: Take off, fly to Prayer Lake. Land and listen to dialogue before you end the mission.

#4 Timuquan's Map (added 07.13.2012)
Mission Created by Brad Allen
Story by Brad Allen

After a harrowing approach and a landing you survived. You just met with a Haida native tribal elder at a small cabin on Prayer Lake. Nina translated that the people believe you can help them recover a huge treasure of gold that was lost long ago. He handed you an old piece of paper, very faded and hard to decipher. He said "Here is the map of Timuquan. It was lost for a very long time but now we have it back. Timuquan fought for and gathered a large fortune of gold. It was taken by a tribe of his warriors from Spanish Conquistadors who had once stolen it from the people of the region. He held onto this great fortune of gold but became obsessed with the power he held and was corrupted by the treasure. He set about hiding the treasure so that nobody could ever steal it from him or his descendants. It is believed that this map will help locate it. The Treasure is ours but help us find it and you will be rewarded." You humbly take possession of this artifact and agree to help see if the map can be used. It's now time to return to Sewall Lodge to spend the night doing some research on the fragile parchment you now hold onto.

Objective: Take off, fly from Prayer Lake then return to Sewall Lodge. Land and listen to dialogue before you end the mission

#5 Toby Can Help Us! (added 07.13.2012)
Mission Created by Brad Allen
Story by Brad Allen

In your possesion now is the map of Timuquan. You know that you've been brought in to examine this old map. One that's been rumored to have a possible route to the long lost Treasure of Timuquan. If it exists. The story has been passed down through generations for centuries and they believe it to be true. Now they want you to assist with an expedition based on a small, almost impossible to decipher piece of paper. You have a friend named Toby who studies the history of the Haida people and hope that he can help you read the map. He has been operating a fishing operation up at Nisga'a Glacier Lake and knows the language. Maybe he can help with the symbology and other markings on the map.

Objective: Take off, fly from the island of Haida Gwaii over the Hecate Strait. Then into the Portland Canal and up a narrow valley where you'll finally arrive at Nisga'a Glacier Lake. Land and listen to dialogue before you end the mission.

#6 "The Old Crow" (added 01.07.2013)
Mission Created by Brad Allen
Story by Brad Allen

Toby has deciphered some things on the map. That's good because the only text you were able to make out from the faded native words that are still visible was "Follow The Old Crow" There are many more phrases which are enscribed on the hand me down parchment you examine. But what kind of clue is that? Not much, but something to remember. As an archaeoligist, you know it's foolish to dismiss any clue. Even something as vague as, "Follow the Old Crow" but Toby said that the drawings and words on the map are describing places that are similar to some folklore locations in the vicinity. Toby says he believes each of the locations exist and he knows where these may be. He says that the first clue seems interesting because there is an old shipwreck named by the locals as the home of the old crows or, "Shaan ts'axweil neil" the "Old Crow Home". And it's always been rumored to be a haunted and dangerous place. Toby says the map describes several other local area landmarks, but for now. Let's go find that shipwreck!
