The Sealed Box has been opened. The names of the Council are read aloud.
When the name "John Smith" is called, you are stunned. He has been accused of mutiny by Edward Wingfield and is held in confinement. The penalty for mutiny is death. How can such a man be a leader of your colony?

The Instructions for the Virginia Colony are read. This document will guide your search for a suitable place to construct your settlement. Examine it carefully. It may well be the difference between survival and death.
