The year is 1671. The Empire of Avalon is at war with her great rivals, Versaillia and Hispanola. The fighting is worst in the islands of the mysterious new world, far across the ocean. The islands there are rich with resources that the powers of the old world long for, and are willing to send their mighty navies to battle over.
The new world provides opportunities for others as well. Hundreds of merchant ships sail these waters, along with almost as many pirates. It’s a cruel, dangerous world.
Yet despite the dangers, there are wonders in the new world unlike any seen by the Avalish before. Exotic flora and fauna. Spices and herbs with mysterious properties. Mysterious natives who some claim have magical powers.
There are even more outlandish tales that some sailors tell. Mermaids. Sirens. Sea monsters larger than any ship. Some even speak of mythical cities of gold, and the glorious fountain of youth. Are these tales mere legends, or do such wonders really exist?
The HMS Valiant, the newest warship in Her Majesty’s fleet, has just been dispatched to protect the Empire’s interests in the new world. Will her crew be up to the task?
