Here begins a very unique section of the game that bears its own explanation. I considered adding this section at the beginning with the other narrative, but felt it would make more sense and be less confusing if it were explained here where it actually happens. 

The Ghostly Chest mentioned here is a ZZ that is located on the Dark Portal location. (It is a golden chest located at the top of the steps just below the actual portal.) To get there: 
* Go to the Dark Tower 
* Enter the door behind Anabel (you will be in the Dark Tower Hall) 
* Enter the door at the top of the steps behind the Iron Knight (you will be in the Guest Room) 
* Enter the door on the right when going up the steps (you will be in the Laboratory) 
* Enter the tunnel in the Laboratory Floor (you will be at the Dark Portal) 

You need 1 crafted Keys of Fate to open the Ghostly Chest. The components for the Keys of Fate are: 
50 Destiny Keys 
1 Rare Stamp 
2 Unusual Stamps 
5 Plain Stamps 
2000 coin

 The Destiny Keys are secured by doing “side quests” that are introduced at various places in the game. (Characters offering side quests will have a blue exclamation point over their head.) At the very end of Level 68 to the last quest of Level 71, the characters will also give you a Destiny Key in addition to the coins and experience points for completing their tasks. 

The GAME will require you to craft the Keys of Fate three times: 
1. During Level 69, you unlock the Ghostly Chest for Prof. Pinfeathers and receive the Portal Activator.  
2. During Level 70, you will be required to provide a Keys of Fate and 15,000 coins to open the Cargo Hold for Pete.
3. During Level 71, Lord Chamberlain will send you to the Ghostly Chest from which you will get the Ocean Guide.

After you get the Portal Activator from the Ghostly Chest, if you use the “i” to look inside the Chest you will see the Rainbow Dragon (an Exclusive Pet). There are a total of 4 Exclusive Pets: Rainbow Dragon, Sea Serpent, Fire Dragon, and Woolly-Paw. At no time are you sent to the Ghostly Chest during game play to get these pets. There is absolutely no mention of their existence while playing the Game, either. Someone just got curious and looked inside. They then shared what they discovered.

Some additional info about the Side Quests:
1. They appear during the above mentioned times in the game when you are asked to craft the Keys of Fate so you can collect them for that crafting.
2. They go away/are temporarily disabled shortly after you either use the Keys of Fate or complete the Pinfeather’s set of quests in which you are required to craft it. How long they stay varies each time.
3. IF you have less than 50 Destiny Keys when the GAME asks you to craft the Keys of Fate to open the Ghostly Chest, your pets will give you Destiny Keys in their pet chests when you feed them.
4. There are usually 7-8 characters offering the side quests when they are activated.
5. When doing the side quests, you would want to open the quest for each character because there’s some overlapping…..if two characters send you to the same location, one visit will satisfy both characters.
6. Side quests only become available after Level 71 at the points where players were waiting for new content to be released. Sometimes they show up a few tasks before the last task of the old content and sometimes it’s only on that last task. Generally, though, when you accept the first task of the new material, they are disabled until the next update was issued to players.

7. The location/task where new content was released is marked in the character quests after Level 71. (These markings should not be confused with the “download next chapter” notations that occur at various points of the game.)
8. Once you get your first Exclusive Pet from the Ghostly Chest, the Exclusive Pet food is also unlocked. It will then come randomly at HOS completion as does the regular pet food. You should maintain at least 20 bags of it in inventory to encourage the game to continue to give it regularly.
9. The Rainbow Dragon is the first pet you will get when returning to the Ghostly Chest. The other 3 come out randomly. Sometimes when players went back to the Ghostly Chest to get one of those remaining pets, they got the 5-bags of Exclusive Food instead. 
10. Once you have completed Levels 69 – 71 AND have collected all four of the pets, there is absolutely no necessity to continue doing side quests or to return to the Ghostly Chest for the Exclusive Food.
11. It is important to have no side quests activated/opened when proceeding with character quests in the new content. Some players have not been able to continue in the game when they have had a side quest open for a character when this character is the first one to whom the new content sends you. If this happens, only Big Fish technical support can assist with getting the game to allow you to proceed.
