"Ahoy me hearties, have I a story for ye! Years ago I was the high captain of a grand fleet of ships. Back then, life was never dull. Each new dawn brought with it dangers and riches abound. The world was the helm of me ship, and I had her in the palm of me hand. Argghh, that is until one dark eve the skies frowned upon our good fortune. That is to say, a warring storm came upon us before we knew it and in a flash me entire fleet was sleeping in the depths of Davy Jones' Locker. As luck would have it, myself and a hand full of me scallawags managed to stay afloat on a raft made from empty rum barrels. For days we were adrift, thirsty, hungry, and scorched by the sun. I slept for what seemed an eternity, until finally I was awoken by the sound of singing birds, and then those heavenly words. Land ho, Captain! Of the original crew only myself and three others survived the trial. We were saddened by the loss of our brothers and sisters at sea, yet somehow smiles found us again as we finally stepped upon the shores of an uncharted desert island. The island was just rich enough with fresh water and resources to support the four of us. But year after year, we had to come to terms with our fate. We would never sail again. After years on the island, we missed our old life so much, that we came up with this game to remind us of who we once were. Other than our bones, it is all that remains of a life that once was."
