The Virginia Company has advertised for Adventurers to the New World. You are among the 105 men and boys who have signed on to establish an English colony in Virginia. Some of your fellow travelers are workers, but many are Gentlemen looking for adventure and gold.
Twenty years ago a group of English colonists voyaged to Virginia. They built their settlement on the island of Roanoke... and then they disappeared without a trace.
A sealed box contains the names of your leaders and your instructions. It must not be opened until you reach the Virginia. You must pay close heed to the advice contained therein. If you do not, your very lives will be at risk.
Until that time Captain Christopher Newport is in command.
To be well-prepared for your adventure you must learn more about your ships and the necessary provisions. Then you will prepare to sail.
GODSPEED TO YOU.
