Something strange is happening on the open seas. Pirate ships are disappearing, and apparently other vessels are, as well. There are rumors of an evil force moving upon the waters, destroying everything in its path. Naval enforcers from Europe and the colonies have sent forth their best officers to deal with the situation. Foremost among them is a Portuguese Vice Admiral named Guiomar Cabral, who has been given broad jurisdiction over the matter. Guiomar is not a superstitious man, and he believes a violent fiend who is very human has been perpetrating these terrible deeds. He is raiding ships and ports everywhere, rounding up anyone he feels may be associated with the unknown murderer.
It is not a good time to be free. Get yourself in jail and stay there! The longer you can evade the attention of Cabral and his men, the better. Guiomar Cabral doesn’t care about common criminals…he’s on a more serious manhunt. After he’s moved on, you can return to business as usual.
