So my son and I were playing; we had an ashen map that landed us on a volcano island, dug up the treasure, and hightailed it out of there. We went to the first Sovereign we saw and got two goblets out of it. Now mind you, my son is 7; the first words out of his mouth were, "that was it?". (I had to agree, it was a rather poor chest)
Well, as we were turning, we saw a few chests in the water; no idea what happened, but I decided to grab them, and it turned out more and more chests were coming from this loot.
All in all 15 chests, 7 high-level skulls, and a whole lot of rare and exotic chests.
We were in a sloop, and our deck looked like a gilded ship. We sold them all to the Soverign.
Then I realized coming up on us was the ship that probably was the one that lost everything; they had Athena sails, and I'm like, "Hell to the no." and booked it out of there. They followed us until we hit a storm. I went towards the moon, and they went the way I entered.
I had to go to reaper's hideout so we could sell their log. (which was worth 3K) and their flag. (level 5)...
My son said, "I wish they were on our side."
I said, "Kiddo, the game is called Sea of Thieves, not Sea of Friends; you just took part in what makes this game fun."
He said, "Stealing is bad."
I said, "In real life, stealing is bad, but in this game, if you can't keep hold of your loot, you don't deserve to cash it in. "
He smiled when he realized we did well.
