The Story – Sunstone

Brain Chase: The Sunstone of Cortés 

The Missing Adventurer

History knows few adventurers like Tate Grayson, gentleman explorer. His feats of strength, bravery, and intellect are unparalleled in the world of antiquities. But after a lifetime of amassing treasure troves of invaluable artifacts, one day Tate Grayson inexplicably disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again.


The Sunstone of Cortés

It is said that before he vanished, Tate Grayson left behind a series of clues to the location of something he called his “greatest treasure.” Legend has it that the first of these clues can be found inside one of Grayson’s recovered artifacts called the Sunstone of Cortés, a mysterious calendar stolen from the Aztec empire by Hernan Cortés in the 1500s. A priceless treasure in its own right, the Sunstone is rumored to be plated in pure gold, with an interior planetary gearing mechanism that unlocks a secret compartment when certain calendar symbols align. Like Tate himself, the whereabouts of his prized Sunstone have remained a mystery.


The Team

While Tate Grayson has no shortage of fans, there are none more loyal and true than the members of the Grayson Academy of Antiquities, a well-financed team of tenacious treasure hunters comprised of intrepid leader Mae Merriweather, her tech-savvy brother Max, their athletic friend Sean Drake, and the team’s nemesis-turned-ally Savannah Bryce. Together they preserve Tate Grayson’s legacy by scouring the earth in search of priceless artifacts.


The Mission

When Audrey Chastain, the team’s new financier, uncovers a hidden clue inside Tate Grayson’s diary, she sends Mae Merriweather and team on an international search for the legendary Sunstone of Cortés. Along the way, the Academy must crack difficult riddles and escape perilous traps, all while avoiding sabotage by rival fortune hunters. With any luck, the team will not only recover the Sunstone, but also learn important clues about the mysterious disappearance of their hero.
