You are a retired privateer from King Henry VIII's forces and you must establish your leadership on the island that he has granted you for your service. You must clear the animals that have taken over the land and repel the pirates who would use it as a bolthole. Henry may have given you the land, but he expects you to provide him with goods from such a resource rich land. Good luck!
Keep your eye open for further installments both in economic settings and invasion. Only time will tell how well this fair island will survive!
This was a very difficult mission to complete. With a large amount of bandits coming back and back again, it was very hard to get things set up and running. While I found the mission fun and challenging, I thought that it could have been a bit more balanced – giving the player a few ‘good’ events to balance the attacks. I am glad to be able to write this review because I knew that in doing so I actually finished the game! Onto part two I guess.

Overall - lots of fun, but not a repeater.
Playability - Fun, but not too challenging. This isn't one that has me waking up at 2am saying "aha, I'll try that!". Doesn't require too much thinking.
Balance - on 'Normal' level, I found this too easy. The bandits I could keep under control and there weren't really any other obstacles.
Creativity - A few more things going on and this would have been a very exciting and challenging mission. Close, but not quite - so I rate it a 3.
Map - Excellent! This is a stunning island, beautifully thought out!
Story - I like the idea, and there's definite potential for an ongoing story (looking forward to playing part 2!). Well written too, so it gets a 5.
