A new world has been found.
While the Portuguese have been exploring the Atlantic coast of Africa for over a century, it is the Spanish who have first sailed to an uncharted continent. The Treaty of Tordesillas has divided the world between these two global powers, awarding the new lands in the west to Spain.
On his Universalis Cosmographia map, German cartographer Martin Waldseemüller has given these unfamiliar lands a name: America.
Both the Spanish court and the Catholic Church are eager to establish themselves in this strange world, funding expeditions to investigate rumors of native treasures and abundant resources. They are interested only in results, and view human life as cheap and expendable.
You have heard rumors of a lost treasure in the new world. If you bring it back, it could change not only your own destiny, but that of your beloved Spain.
Despite the danger, it is a time of great opportunity, adventure, and maybe even a chance to be a hero.
It is your time.
It is your story.
What will you discover?
