- Adéwalé: Stealing a fishing schooner single handed? Damned canny, captain.
- Edward: As is taking back my brig from this pillock. Once again, I thank you both.
- Kidd: This billy-huff didn't last two months with your ship before he came limping back to Nassau. Took the pardon straight away.
- Rackham: I had to, lads! That Rogers was on to me from the first.
- Adéwalé: Hold your tongue, Rackham!
- Kidd: So what now? Still chasing your elusive fortune?
- Edward: Aye. And I'm close. I've heard the Sage is sailing out of Kingston on a ship called the Princess.
- Kidd: Put your ambition to better use, Kenway. Find the Sage with US.
- Edward: I've no stomach for you and your mystics, Mary. I want a taste of the good life. An easy life.
- Kidd: No one honest has an easy life, Edward. And it's aching for one that causes the most pain. All right, Rackham. Back to retirement.
Edward sailed to Kingston.
- Edward: What news Adé?
- Adéwalé: This bahjohn works for the Royal African Company. Tell him what you told me.
- Slaver: I haven't seen the Princess for eight weeks or more. Meaning she may soon be back.
- Adéwalé: What else?
- Slaver: I thought this buck belonged to the other men who was asking about the Princess this morning so I told him that-
- Edward: What other men?
- Slaver: Haughty sailor in plain rags. And a gent with a scar just here.
- Edward: Where have they got to?
- Slaver: Staying just 'round the corner, they said.
- Adéwalé: I grow tired of chasing these fantasies of yours, Edward. As does the crew.
- Edward: Hang in there, man. We're getting close.
Edward located Benjamin Hornigold and Woodes Rogers.
- Rogers: Have you alerted the men? We're short on time.
- Hornigold: Aye, there'll be two soldiers waiting for us at the crossroads.
- Rogers: Very good.
- Hornigold: If you don't mind me asking, Sir. What's the meaning behind these blood samples we're taking?
- Rogers: Torres tells me that blood is required for the Observatory to properly function.
- Hornigold: How do you mean, sir?
- Rogers: If one wishes to use the Observatory to, say... spy on King George, then one would require a drop of the king's blood to do so. In other words, a small sample of blood gives us access to a man's everyday life.
- Hornigold: Does Torres mean to spy on me then? For I've just given him a sample of my blood.
- Rogers: As have I, Captain Hornigold. As will all Templars. It is a measure of insurance.
- Hornigold: And trust, I reckon.
- Rogers: Yes, but fear not. Torres has shipped our samples to a Templar safehouse in Rio de Janeiro. We will not be the Observatory's first objects, I assure you.
- Hornigold: Aye, sir. I suppose it's a small price to pay for what the Templars have given me in return.
- Rogers: Precisely.
- Hornigold: Governor, when you hunted pirates in Madagascar, what methods worked best?
- Rogers: I believe it was my charisma that persuaded them. Violence and threats should always be a last resort. In Madagascar, I offered those pirates a choice... take a pardon and return to England penniless but free men, or be hanged by the neck until dead.
- Hornigold: Just as you did in Nassau.
- Rogers: Precisely. A pity Commodore Chamberlaine did not live to see my thorough success.
- Hornigold: It's not like you to gloat, Rogers.
- Rogers: We all deserve a moment, don't we?
The men met with Laureano Torres.
- Rogers: Grand Master! Welcome.
- Torres: (Good evening.) What have you learned?
- Rogers: The Princess was taken by pirates six weeks ago. And so far as we know, the Sage Roberts was still aboard.
- Torres: Very good. It is something, no? And what measures are we taking to recover the Princess from these pirates?
- Rogers: Captain Hornigold has dispatched some of his best men to ensure the Sage's capture.
- Torres: Hm. What of the Sage's present location. Do we know?
- Rogers: Africa, your excellency.
- Torres: Africa? By God, the winds do not favor that route.
- Rogers: I concur, Grand Master. I should have sailed there myself. One of my slave galleys would be more than capable of making a swift journey.
- Torres: Slave Galley? Captain, I asked you to divest yourself of that sick institution.
- Rogers: I fail to see the difference between enslaving some men and all men. Our aim is to steer the entire course of civilization, is it not?
- Torres: A body enslaved inspires the mind to revolt. But enslave a man's mind, and his body will follow on naturally. Efficiently.
- Rogers: A fair point, Grand Master.
- Torres: Eh, remind me... where in Africa are we looking?
- Hornigold: Príncipe, Sir. A small island.
- Rogers: We've sent two of our best men. Burgess and Cockram. Privateers with fast ships and firm hearts.
Hornigold spotted the Jackdaw anchored in the harbor and called out to Edward.
- Hornigold: Edward Kenway! Imagine my surprise at seeing your Jackdaw anchored there. Have you heard all you came to hear? Will you now go rescue the Sage from our clutching hands?
- Edward: A pox on you, traitor! You sold us down river!
- Hornigold: Because I found a better path! The Templars know order. Discipline. Structure. But you never could fathom these subtleties. Goodbye, old friend! You were a soldier once! When you fought for something real. Something beyond yourself!
Edward escaped the guards and left the area.
Edward learned that Bartholomew Roberts could be found on Príncipe.
