Greatness from Small Beginnings is the second chapter of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. The chapter takes place 20 years prior to the events of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, following a young Nathan "Nate" Drake as he attempts to steal legendary explorer Sir Francis Drake's ring from a Columbian museum.


[edit] Synopsis

20 years prior to the events that transpire in London, Nathan "Nate" Drake stands outside a museum in the Columbian city of Cartagena. The museum is holding an exhibit on Nate's ancestor, the legendary explorer Sir Francis Drake. Nate is planning on stealing Drake's ring, believing it to rightly belong to him. Nate locates the display case holding the ring and its accompanying astrolabe, but is unable to unlock it and then spots a man acting suspiciously in the exhibit. Nate watches as the man scratches the display case's lock with a key and then walks away, but as Nate moves towards the case, he is grabbed by a museum security guard and thrown out.[1]

Nate tracks the man through a series of Columbian streets, following him through a marketplace and taking cover when necessary. Eventually, the man comes to a locksmith, who presumably forges a key for access to the display case. The man places the key into his wallet as Nate watches from outside, and Nate then tracks him through more streets. The man then meets up with a woman and the two go for a drink at a roadside bar. Nate takes this as his opportunity to steal the wallet and is able to make his getaway, although the man soon catches up to him. After a conversation where the man states that Nate has potential, Nate is forced to hand the wallet back, although he keeps the key for himself, and some hours later uses it when he breaks into the museum.[1]
