Navigating hazardous environments, Captains can choose to mine or trade valuable commodities. Players will vie with each other for Titles, riches, and most importantly Fame. Players must take advantage of opportunities as they arise in order to maximize gaining Fame Points. The most adaptive, risky, and creative players will excel. One captain will rise above the others, surpassing mortality by becoming Legend!
