    • Olmec: One of the most daring navigators in history was the Ancient Greek explorer Pytheas. Around 300 B.C., with just one small ship, he sailed all the way around the Northern coast of Europe, but it wasn't easy. According to legend, after days in the open ocean without food, a lookout began shouting.
      Lookout: Look! Out there! What's that?!
      Sailor #1: It's an island with a head!
      Sailor #2: It's an island with a tail!
      Sailor #3: It's an island with a head and tail!
      Olmec: There, off the bow, was the most gigantic fish they'd ever seen -- a whale! But Pytheas was unafraid.
      Pytheas: Looks like dinner to me.
      Olmec: He baited the anchor and threw it overboard. The whale took the bait, and Pytheas grabbed the rope, but it dragged him into the sea. As the horrified sailors looked on, the angry whale breached and dove, carrying Pytheas with him, but he was soon exhausted, and Pytheas climbed up the rope, and conked the whale on the head. When the ship drew near, Pytheas waved.
      Pytheas: Look boys, fish sticks.
      Olmec: The starving men feasted on the whale and kept one gigantic bone as proof of their story. But it washed overboard during a storm and drifted to The Temple. Your quest is to find The Lost Whalebone of Pytheas and bring it back here.
      Kirk: All right. Well, Olmec, tell us, where is this Whalebone?
      Olmec: The Lost Whalebone of Pytheas can be found in The Chamber of the Sacred Markers.
