You are all on a vessel by the name Sea Mistress. It is lead by Thomas Wright, an experienced Captain in the Anglemar Navy. You are journeying to a newly discovered land. Some of you come with specific tasks to perform; some to escape your pasts; and some to carve out new futures. Each of you have volunteered for this journey with the knowledge that this is likely a one-way trip and any attempt to return would take quite some time.
You are following your sister vessel, King’s Glory, captained by Eric Thunderstone, which left some 2 weeks ahead of you with most of the supplies and equipment needed to set up a small settlement. Their goal is to locate a suitable location for the settlement before the Sea Mistress catches up.
Once your ships meet up, the construction of the settlement will begin. Until then, enjoy your voyage as best you can and get to know each other. You’ll be spending much of the next several years working together.
Let me know which characters you want to run so I can fill out the rest of the characters.
