Traveling Merchant: Applenook is close, but we've got a big haul. It's a relief to have some help on this run.
Veteran Suspicious Villager: Hold it! Give us your cargo or we blow the bridge.
Traveling Merchant: If you blow the bridge, there won't be anything left to take. You're bluffing.
Veteran Suspicious Villager: Bad move. You had your chance.
Veteran Suspicious Villager: You said it would take out the whole crew!
Veteran Suspicious Villager: Well, we're in it now. Attack!
On success
Traveling Merchant: Good thing you were here to help. Follow me to the market
and I'll thank you properly.


  • The amount of pirates in the initial wave can be lowered by talking to Suspicious Villagers on the bridge before the merchant arrives.
Can get stuck and be impossible to complete, as spawns required to be defeated may not spawn at all.
