i really love this game. i only got to play it once, so i had to retire vary quickly because i didn't discover anything. but this is one of the most fun games too
I was Duke in two faction, found all family members, king of pirates (defeated all of them and found their treasure), defeated Montalban, married with beautiful gouvernor daugther, found one lost city...but the second was somewhere in land with no sea mark...
I have it!
I played for a bit, haven't picked it up since.
I never got rid of my Revenge Sloop. =p
