PlotEdit

While relaxing at the Pelican's Pouch in the small Caribbean town of San Miguel, rumors reach Jack and Mojo of the mysterious Ghost Islands which appear and disappear at certain times of the year. Many can see the islands but most just don't. Claudine knows more but is being particularly vague and distant; she does, however, decide that they could use another crew-member and to Jack's chagrin, it's Dominique. Pretty soon, there are 'fuzzy' cocoon shapes moving around, shapes whose home can only be the mysterious Ghost Islands.

Notes and themesEdit

Continues the ecological theme that tourists coming to visit places of beauty or magic, by their very presence, help to destroy such places. Also there are a number of Loa references.

QuotesEdit

Rose: "Sometimes things are as solid as we are willing to allow them to be."
Mojo: "That applies to everything we believe in."
Rose: "Unless you try to sit on it!"

Mojo: "Bunny doesn't look happy."
Jack: "Oh well. You know... teenagers."
Mojo: "Thought they called them 'young adults'?"
Jack: "Yeah. I don't know why."
