In the Lost Desert, a crowd gathers to watch the grand unveiling of Coltzan's Shrine. Princess Vyssa gives a brief speech before revealing, to the shock of onlookers, that the ancient magical crown which was meant to be placed inside the shrine, has disappeared. The only clue is a poorly written note that reads: "Ha Ha! We have stolen your crown Vyassa! U smell and u have a spotty bum." It is soon discovered that the culprits are the Meerca brothers Heermeejet and Merouladen. Following the trail of their secret meetings and encoded messages, Neopians find a Parrot who has recorded a conversation between Malkus Vile, the plot's mastermind, and Princess Sankara, King Coltzan III's murderer. A coded poem leads to another note hiding the coordinates of the crown. The crown is found buried in the shores of Mystery Island. However, Malkus Vile escapes.
