Although Guybrush manages to find a flattened skull to complete the Monkey Island potion, Return to Monkey Island Players still have a lot to do if they want to make it to the series’ titular location. Luckily, Guybrush has the perfect plan to get there, although there are a few obstacles he and the players must first overcome before he can put his plan into action.
While LeChuck’s crew votes against Guybrush’s plan to follow Captain Madison’s ship, Return to Monkey Island Players must find a way to change their minds. There are five casters in total, each requiring something different to change their voice. But as so often, where there’s a will, there’s a way.
How to convince the crew to go to Monkey Island
Unfortunately, in order for the crew to accept his idea, Guybrush must achieve a unanimous result, which means all five of LeChuck’s subordinates must be persuaded to change their minds. The good news is that most of the crew can be influenced with relative ease, and players can make them do so in any order they choose. However, in the interests of efficiency, it helps to work on all of them at the same time, as there is some overlap between crew members.
How to convince Iron Rose to change her voice
Upon speaking with the ship’s Quartermaster, Iron Rose, players learn that she has lost her trust in LeChuck and has forgotten exactly why she agreed to join his crew in the first place. Luckily, Guybrush happens to have a motivational pamphlet that explains all the perks of being part of the Ghost Pirate’s crew. Showing her the brochure will remind her why she’s doing what she’s doing and is all it takes to get her to change her voice.
If the players didn’t pick them up brochure At the beginning of Part 2, you can find it in the bottom of the ship’s hold.
How to convince Putra to change her voice
Convincing the ship’s cook, Putra, to change her voice is just as easy as convincing Iron Rose. If you talk to her a little, it will turn out that Putra will always vote the same as the ship’s quartermaster. Assuming the players have already shown the pamphlet to Iron Rose, they have already managed to change Putra’s voice. However, this does not mean that Putra is completely satisfied with the current status quo.
When players ask Putra why people don’t call her “chef,” she will reveal that her job title is actually “chef,” but it’s not for lack of effort. She has been trying to get a promotion for some time, but LeChuck refuses to sign it. If players offer their help, she will deliver them request for promotion, which players must get approved by LeChuck. Unfortunately, simply directing the request to LeChuck is not enough.
Despite this, players should still speak to the Ghost Pirate and attempt to tell him about Guybrush’s plan to get to Monkey Island. He’ll interrupt her mid-sentence and remind Guybrush who’s in charge before handing it over Report of the first smear. Players must then use this report with five of the following stains and hygiene issues to complete it:
- The ghost rats in front of LeChuck’s cabin.
- The greasy porthole in the hold.
- The grease stains in the hold.
- The splattered ghost chicken in the hold.
- The galley.
- The potion stains the deck.
- Gullet stuck in the ship’s rudder.
In order for the chicken to appear in the hold, players must feed something chicken feed (found in the sack by the ladder) to the ghost chicken above the crate they found Murray in and then exit and re-enter the hold. To add the galley to the list, players simply need to use the report with one of the many health and safety issues found in the ship’s galley.
After completing the report, players should go to the deck and give it to Iron Rose, who approves it and then returns it to Guybrush along with a few others papers who need LeChuck’s seal of approval. Once this happens, players should open their inventory and add the promotion request to the papers they just received to obtain the Combined papers. Next, players should give the combined papers to LeChuck to receive them Putra’s stamped request for promotionwhich they can then hand over to Putra.
How to convince Flair to change her voice
A chat with Flair outside of the kitchen will reveal that she’d be willing to change her voice if Guybrush can retrieve her grandmother’s whale knife, which she left stuck in the back of the gullet before LeChuck fell overboard through him. Thankfully, Gullet is now stuck in the ship’s rudder, which players can access by either going through the greasy porthole in the hold or climbing over the railing on the deck and then going all the way to the left. Once they’re down there, players should grab them whale knife off Gullet’s back, then bring it back to Flair to secure her vote support.
How to convince Flambe to change his voice
Flambe can be found at the top of the Crow’s Nest. If you speak to him for a bit, players will learn that he would be willing to change his voice for a burnt Alaska, which means he has to go back to the kitchen. If players have already helped Putra get promoted, she’ll beef up the desert in no time. Unfortunately the Scorched Alaska isn’t quite hot enough, but players can fix this fairly easily.
Near the cannon at the top of the deck, players will find a glowing staff and use Guybrush’s knife to cut off the tip. You can then combine them Still hot Item with the Scorched Alaska in her inventory to increase its heat. Giving this to Flambe will be enough to secure his vote. In fact, he’s so happy he’s even willing to lend Guybrush his joke book for a day, which will prove very useful in a moment or two.
When playing in casual mode, players do not need to increase the Scorched Alaska’s heat level before handing it over to Flambe.
How to convince Apple Bob to change his voice
Apple Bob is hanging upside down next to Iron Rose. If the players chat with him for a bit, they will learn that he is bored and longs for entertainment. Though he says he’s ready for almost anything, he’ll dismiss any idea Guybrush comes up with. Well, all except reading, that is. Luckily, players happen to have a joke book in their possession, and giving this to Apple Bob is enough to make him change his voice.
How to call up another vote
According to the note pinned to the far right of the deck, players must ring the bell once to request another vote. Assuming they’ve already convinced the other five crew members to go along with Guybrush’s plan, they should do just that, which will result in a unanimous conclusion. Now players just need to steal the Monkey Island Mystery map from LeChuck’s cabin and then find a way to get Murray to Captain Madison’s ship.
Return to Monkey Island is available now for PC and Nintendo Switch.
