You flip to the page about Nature's Gift. All of it seems pretty normal, but then you notice two pages are stuck together. The next two pages are just about some mundane fungus, but it looks like whoever owned this book before you left a note inside!Sister Cloudflare returns from visit to Supreme Steward. In rare exception, he answers a question. Cloudflare believes, based on answer, that the flower Nature's Gift contains a small fragment of Mother Nature's immortal divine soul, which demonstrates why previous attempts to speak to the flower have been impossible. Mother Nature speaks to no more than three or perhaps four in a generation.>>477609
"I'd recommend Mount Hero. It's a little bluff out on the west side of the island where all the great historical figures of Trotantium are immortalized in stone.">>477611>>477612

Nothing was stolen from your bag of holding.
The journal is in the unmistakeable penmanship of your father. It speaks of an ancient tomb out in the countryside of the island that has a great sun map reputed to point to the location of a powerful artifact. To work the sun map, though, one would need the legendary Staff of Dal, which has been split up into pieces.
He had the easiest time finding the Shaft of Dal, which is currently on display in the museum called Panama – the museum that is lost and can only be found by the extremely perceptive. Supposedly there is a pirate gang in Roads that may know more, known as the Mad Hatters. He has a note scrawled to the side:#Password: Swordfish
The Gem of Dal supposedly fell into the possession of a very rich member of the upperclass, Lord Startlemonger. Your father was denied an audience with him, but perhaps you'll have better luck.
Finally, the Headpiece of Dal was said to be lost to the wilds outside the city. Your father picked up clues pointing to it falling into the hands of the pygmy ponies that lurk in the ruined city of C'j – the ruins of which are on this very island.
