The Caribbean is packed with a colorful cast of characters, and most of them are just like Christopher Raven; sneaky, selfish and deadly. Danger lurks behind every corner and conversation, and even routine encounters with the denizens of the West Indies can turn into bloodbaths in a heartbeat. From corrupt government officials to vicious wildlife and shady merchants, you must choose your words carefully, and watch your allies closely. Backstabbing bastards lurk everywhere; government factions will betray you, underpaid crews will mutiny, and pirates will double-cross you. Even sailing into remote, uncharted territory won’t keep you safe; vicious wildlife inhabits the Caribbean like a plague. Wolves prowl the scrub, alligators patrol the shallow swamps, and jaguars stalk the shadowy jungles. A variety of merchants, tailors, herbalists and weapon dealers will help you in your quest, but even merchants have their own agendas-trust nothing but your blade and your raven.
