The New World was only recently discovered, and permanent settlers first set foot there a year ago. They put out a call for additional settlers to make the same journey across the ocean to join them in creating a new civilization. You are part of that second wave, adventurers making the voyage to find your fortunes amidst the jungles of the New World. You know little about this primal continent, and much of what your fellow shipmates know is likely exaggeration or pure fabrication. Tales are told of vast ruins deep in the jungles built of solid gold and guarded by prehistoric terrors. Whole settlements disappear to a person, only to reappear as mindless and hostile attackers. But these cautionary tales do little to stem the flow of treasure-hunters and explorers amongst the other immigrants.
