First go to the Residence in Havana. NOTE: You must have a Spanish Patent to start this line of quests.

  1. The Three Spaniards
    • Talk to the Governor-General Francisco Oregon y Gascon and ask about working for the glory of Spain. He will give you a quest to save three distinguished Spaniard prisoners from the fort in Port Royale, Jamaica.
    • It is suggested that you anchor at a shore away from town to make for an easy escape. The Shores of Portland work well (stay to the right at each screen on the island to get to the fort).
    • There are 2 strategies you can employ at the fort - depending on your reputation and relations with England. If you have good relations with them - bribe the jailor. If not, you will have to fight your way through the prison. The prison is at the bottom of the stairs. Enter, kill the guards. NOTE: There is an opportunity to take a short side quest by talking to a single prisoner in the first cell on the left.
    • Go to the end of the row of cells and find the 3 Spaniards crowding a single cell. Speak with them and now you have to escape. You don't need to worry about the 3 prisoners here they will make their own way back to the ship, but you WILL have to protect the (optional) single prisoner you released in the first cell if you chose to take the side quest. This can be tricky, so be sure to have a backup save.
    • Return to Havana and speak with the governor to finish your mission. You will be awarded the title of Filibustero and 50,000 gold. You will need to wait some time before you can take the next quest.
    • This is a good time to finish the side quest if you took it. (Since he will always be with you on land and can die very easily, it's best to get rid of him ASAP).
  2. At the behest of the Holy Inquisition
    • After a few days have passed speak with the Governor-General in Havana again and he will have some kind words and a new quest for you.
    • Take your ship and travel to Santiago (Cuba). There go to the church and speak with the priest, tell him you are there on business and after a brief exchange, he will tell you that the Inquisition is beneath the church. (You can also just go straight to the Inquisition if you don't want to talk to the priest or if you arrive at night.)
    • Exit the church, down the stairs, turn right and just below the stairs is the door to the Inquisition.
    • Go inside, ignore the 2 red-robed guards and take the hallway to the right, then the first left and behind some furniture there's a passage to the Cardinal. Speak with him and you will accept his mission to find 3 merchants and take from them 50K each for their sins.
    • Exit the tunnels and wait for a priest to come and speak with you. He knows your mission and asks you to consider it carefully before resorting to drastic means. If you choose to re-enter the Inquisition dungeons and warn the Cardinal, he will thank you and give you the Cross of Antonio de Souza (unique item: +30 Luck, +20 Authority, +10 Trade - Thanks to Gagarin77 for this information).
    • Travel to Willemstad (Curacao) and visit the store to find the merchant Joao d'Ylan. He will send you after his partner Jacob Lopez de Fonseca who is conveniently also on your list.
    • Now go to Porto Bello (Spanish Main), and from there by foot to Panama (left, left, straight, straight). Again go to the store and speak with the merchant, then go to the tavern and speak with the barkeep there. Finally start searching the house one by one on the left side. (_in my case it was the 3rd). On first floor u get attacked by a kidnapper. he is easy to be killed, on the second floor are the other 2 kidnappers and the hostage (the guy needed by us).BE CAREFUL: When u enter the second floor room attack the center guy or he is gonn? one-shot kill u smile.gif
    • Speak with the guy and he is gonn? reveal u a secret about a lost book(and what a book!!!). U need this part of the quest, because this is gonna make your game biggrin.gif
    • Now go to Bermuda, there speak with the Shipyard manager Alexis. Ask him to open u the dungeon.(the door at the left of his desk). He is gonn? warn u and open it.- If u have unfinished ship upgrades here and u don?t have the mats still, to start the conversation u must SWAP ships.
    • Before enter bring 3 fighters. Equip them with pistols + health potions + ANTIDOTE !!! When u enter, just let your guards to kill all the skeletons, u just stay there and look the fight biggrin.gif
    • When done go to the next room and u gonn? see a chest behind a locked door. U have to go to the right and pass behind the chest and enter to the room from the left side.
    • U gonna take many awesome items, take all, equip the pistols, the blade, be sure to take the BIBLE !!
    • Return to Curacao and go to the trader. U get the inquisitor money, but start a new talk about the book and u gonna receive 1 000 000 gold. (The other guy has told it's better receive a "super" armor, giving the book to the Cardinal, but this armor can be taken other way and now we need 1milion.)
  3. Now is time to catch the other guy or make him pay. At the same city go to the Moneylender. Speak with him, but DONT KILL HIM, DONT PROVOKE HIM. Just turn back and leave the room.
    • Now go to the tavern and speak with the waitress. She gonna tell u her story, now BE FAST go to the ship and directly to Fort Orange (Jamaica). Stop there and turn off the sea mode, now wait for pirate ship and board it. The captain will surrender and u now have a hostage.
    • Return to Curacao and receive your money from the Moneylender.
    • Travel to Santiago and go to the Cardinal to finish your quest.
    • Go to Havana and speak with the Governor to finish the quest at all.- Is possible u can?t take now the next quest from him, so return to Santiago, go to church and take a 3 day job as a night watch. After finishing this, again return here to take the next part of the nation quest line.
  4. Now the time to continue: GO to governor and take the new mission. -> To capture the Brazilian.
    • Head to Tortuga (u should know already how to get permission), go to the tavern and speak with the innkeeper, he is gonna tell u where to find the Brazilian.
    • Head now to Maracaibo, near the edge of the continent turn to sea mode, after 1min u gonna see a pirate ship (it comes to u, don't bother to search it). Board it and capture the captain.
    • He is gonna tell u he prefers to die - but don't kill him.
    • Return to Santiago inquisition, and bring him to the Cardinal.
    • Go to Havana (attleast 2 days must pass!!!) and speak to governor. He offers u information to find the 3 treasure of the captain and win 100K. All the treasure cost ~500K, but i prefer to just pay to him 400K, and not to search all locations.
      1. To search the treasures - sorry i can't help, haven't played it that way.
      2. To finish faster is better just pay him, if u have money. If not u gonna need 7days to get the sum, just gamble with the governor at high stakes. U can take from him 48K each day before he says he is out of money
    • (Additional info by Gagarin77: Quest No 4. - searching for treasures of Rock Brazilian. There is 1 in cavern on Cuba, 2 in the same cavern near Belize - its the firs cave if you land in Chetoumel Bay (one treasure chest is hidden in the water and you have to jump from the bridge to the water to get it), and final treasure in north part of Hispaniola, in cavern that looks like well on map. There are some cool trinkets in them so it's worth checking, especially the one in Belize hidden in the water.)
  5. The next mission is to find a murderer. After getting the quest go directly to the Commandman's house. In the bedroom u gonna find a letter(near the bed), then go to the tavern and speak with the waitress.
    • Go to report to the governor, what she told u. Get a french license from him and go to Tortuga.
    • Go to tavern there and speak with the inkeper, he is gonna explain u where the house.(front of Port control)
    • When u enter a guy will be there but he is gonna start to run, just follow him and speak with him when u both get to the beach.
    • Kill him and return to the Governor of Havana.
    • Wait 1 day and take a mission from him to go and obey the Santiago governor.
  6. In Santiago go to governor and speak with him for the new task.- CAREFUL: Don't ask for job, like in Havana, attend for some business, to get the next line of quest.
    • The mission is to conquer a city of La Vega. Prepare good, equip everybody of your fighters with potion and bullets.
    • Set sail and get down at the beach at the left side of La Vega.
    • When on the beach go straight, next zone in the right, next zone again in the right and u are there.
    • Short move shows how soldiers come behind u and a battle starts, when all dead, check the bodies and get some money. Now enter the city
    • Another fight with soldiers. Then enter the residence and kill the pirate in there.
    • When finish board your ship and go to Santiago. Speak with governor there and get 100K gold for the dead pirate. Go to Havana and speak with the Governor there to finish your mission.- TWO CHOICES - U have an option to sell the city to the governor, or just don't click it and the city will be yours. If u sell it u get one million cash and reputation. _My advice is to keep it and put someone to control it and bring u regular money_ Also the city will have pirate flag and will be target to enemies, but if u spoil your reputation with Spain, also their target.
  7. Very easy quest now, go to Havana governor, speak with him for it. He has suspicions dutch and french governors are planning something. He gives u a french license.
    • Go to Tortuga, and visit the tavern.
    • Speak with the innkeeper and get a room for a week.
    • Go to Port Controler and speak with him for information for visitors.
    • Now what u want for the next 5-9days, but each day return to room for the night.
    • On the 6th day (_for me_) when i left the room ,there was a messanger telling u the dutch visitor is here.
    • After this start to speak with someone from the tavern from your right and ask him to bring the messenger to your room.
      1. Go to your room and after 20-30sec. messanger comes and u can kill him and steal from the body the letter.
      2. U can jsut get out of the tavern and wipe out the city (around 12 guards) and kill the messanger in public and get the letter.
      3. This way u stay stealth and u can board your ship and go to Havana to finish the quest at the governor.
      4. This way when u board your ship/ships u gonna be in the middle of a fight with 8 ships(2x class 2 and 6 class 5-6). Also another way is from the same start not "park" your ship here, but at the lighthouse. And still have your chance to make massacre in the city and escape successfully.WAIT BEFORE TAKING NEXT QUEST !!! - And read it before even taking itPreparation: U need all the battle ships u can find, with maximum crew, with food in each for atleast 40 days, U need all the best ships. (Additional info by Gagarin77: In quests 8-11 the head of enemy fleets have lots of gold in chests in their cabins (750k-1 million piasters) so if possible board their ships.)
  8. The governor give u a new mission - go and help Pardalo, who is sinking ships at Antigua, but now there's a huge fleet going directly to him.
    • Go with your fleet (_in my case 2x MOW and 1x Battleship_) to Antigua and (not front of the city, more far, so the fort don't fire on you) switch to sea mode...
    • U appear in the middle of EPIC battle. Front of u u have 5x Battleship + 3x lower class ship. The "easy" thing is to defeat them, but the mission is to SAVE the captain of the most destroyed ship. I tried 4 times, each time game generates diff enemies, but each time not only i cant save the captain, i die enemy boards me and rapes my crew/fighters and me. I succeeded in one of the tries to board, and this for my fun was the main ship of the enemy fleet. Looting the captain's body is a MUST. U get a lot of stuff, but try to save our friend and then fight
    • After saving the friendly captain and turn the quest in governors residence of Havana u win 25K gold (which is funny smile.gif ). U have 1 week before takign the next quest and u have to prepare for it. Unbelievably it's easier, u need 2 MOW ships and some small vessels - nothing special.
  9. After 1 week have passed and u are prepared - go to take the quest.- Before this u can go and finally upgrade to the max your MOW if u haven't done it until now.
    • Governor informs u Pirates from England and France, with help from Tortuga are attacking Cumana and u must save it.
    • Put on use the best damage ammunitions, get extra crew and go directly to Cumana, now before turning into Sea Mode and starting the battle, u must position your ship that way:
    • Enter battle mode and use all your perks to reload faster. Your job is just to shoot without stopping and survive two boardings during this time.
    • Go to Cumana governor, select the business and speak in 2 lines with him. Then go to Havana and speak with governor there to finish mission and get 100K reward.
  10. Go to governor of Havana(after 1 week) and take the new quest to go to Porto Bello.
    • Take ONLY 1 ship(Better MOW) and head to Porto Bello.
    • Meet there the governor and he give u 4 class 4 ships with gold to help them reach Cayman
    • U MUST have own strategy now, before entering the sea from of Cayman, or use mine.
    • Don't get very close to the island or your ships will be between u and the enemy. U can loose some of them, but not all. One good commander with good MOW and good officers can take thsi fleet very easy.
    • Go to governor of Havana and speak with him.
  11. Go to governor, who tells u the previous accident wont happen again. And now u must head to Maracaibo to stop ENEMY ATTACK (8 ships, 3 MOW and 3 Battleship, and some other 2). Only help from there is the fort cannons (like they can help us smile.gif )
    • Go to governor of Maracaibo, speak with him, get out of hte building and soldiers speaks with u, then return and speak with governor again.
    • We get an order to finish the attacker, we go to port and start attack.
    • When done we return to governor of Maracaibo and we receive 70K gold.(repair your ship, facking governor, with that amount of money...)
    • We return to Havana where we get a big "THANKS" from our governor.- So no some special strategy here for that mission, just a massacre.
  12. We return after ~10 days for the next mission. Atatck and robb the two holland cities.
    • Take all the firepower u have. First and more easy to take is Curacao. ~40 cannons and we can robb it easy.
    • Then it's time to repair, and prepare for the harder fort. San Martin's one has 161 cannons, here u need long range cannons on your ship/ships - 42lbs. So the fort wont attack u or not so thought.
    • After robbing this city we return to Havana and our reward is all the gold we took.(strangely i don't remember taking any, but who counts this).
  13. Now u have to return 1 month or more later. Your last quest is to take the city of Port-au-prince.
    • This port has 179 cannons - it can sunk a MOW for 34sec.(yes i counted it). SO u have to use 2 MOW's and strike from safe distance. When u take the fort, go and capture the city.
    • When on the shore u have to go to the residence and make the fort part of the spanish kingdom.
    • Return to Havana and the very known governor to finish the quest and after that we finally can work for the great honor of Castilla.
