# Story
1 Big plans
Hello, my fellow captain. My name is Fernão Magalhães and I am planning a daring sea voyage. How about you prove me your seafaring abilities by shipping a large cargo?
2 The way is blocked
Spain faces a critical situation. The Portuguese have blocked the path to the Indies and now we have no way of obtaining the precious spices. We need to find a new route.
3 To the west!
I have a plan already. I am sure there must be a way to the Indies and the famous Spice Islands by the western route. We will succeed where Columbus failed!
4 Mighty fleet
We will need at least 5 ships for the voyage. The fleet must be able to withstand a difficult journey. Can you take care of the material for the ships?
5 Mind the details
Ships are not build only from wood. Iron is necessary for the anchor and cannons. You never know what dangers we might encounter.
6 Able seamen needed
Now let’s hire some crew for the ships. We want only the best. So don’t hesitate to spend a lot of money.
7 Seafood for seamen
Our crew will need some provisions. Get us some salted fish. They should endure the long journey without getting spoiled.
8 First ship is ready
The first ship looks pretty good. Her name will be Concepción. Let’s find some men who will sail on her. They can also help with the construction of the second ship.
9 Roof over the head
Our crew could use a place to sleep in while we finish the preparations for the voyage. Let’s build them some temporary houses. Keep it simple, they don’t need a mansion.
10 Stocking up
It seems we will have more seamen than expected. The salted fish you brought will not be enough. Get us a few more casks so our crew will not starve.
11 Sweeten up the trip
One cannot live only of fish. The men will be happy to have something sweet on the long journey. So let’s stock up on this new snack- cocoa.
12 Building the fleet
Now it’s time to build the next two ships: Santiago and Victoria. They will be modest in size but I am sure that they will be an important part of our fleet.
13 Fishing gear
We will need some harpoons to be able to restock our fish supplies on the way. There is a good blacksmith in town who can make them if you bring him the iron.
14 Paying of debts
Preparations for such a journey can become quite expensive. So could you pay my tab at the Fisherman’s tavern?
15 Changing the crew
Unfortunately our sponsor, the Spanish king doesn’t like our Portuguese crew. Even though I am Portuguese myself. We will have to exchange them for some Spaniards.
16 Trinidad
Four ships are finished. Now we need only the main vessel. It will be the flagship of our fleet and will be called Trinidad. I will command her myself.
17 A safe home
We are nearing the time of departure. I know I will be gone a long time so I want to know my wife and child are taken care of. The first thing they need is a safe home.
18 Family matters
Good, the house should be comfortable enough. Now they only need some money for the food and other items for my little son. Having a child can be quite expensive.
19 Sweet memories
Children love sweets. I know it is not very healthy but I want my child to think of me well while I am gone. I trust my wife to not give him too much of them.
20 Start of the journey
It is time we set sail. I hope you are ready because we won’t be coming back for a long time. Let’s get the last of my crew and set off.
21 Missing equipment
I have forgotten about the weapons! How will we face danger out there without them? Quick, get some before we leave for the open sea!
22 Into the sea!
It seems we have everything. The weather is nice and the sea is calm. This is a good start to a successful expedition.
23 Foul fish
Alas! The fish you have delivered in the last shipment were not preserved correctly. They have gone foul. Can you get us some more supplies?
24 Dark skies
There are dark clouds in the distance, a storm is coming. I hope it won’t be too violent. But just in case bring us some wood for ship repairs.
25 First stop
We have reached the land before the storm caught us. However I can see it wrought havoc in this little port. Let’s help the poor people rebuild their town.
26 New supplies
We already used up most of our supplies. The merchant in town will help us resupply our ships. But we need more gold, everything is terribly expensive here.
27 And forwards!
The land in the distance is the coast of the New World. We need to turn south now. If we meet any natives a generous gift of cocoa will surely appease them.
28 Winter is coming
We should look for a place where to wait out the bad winter weather. Get us some materials to construct the houses in which we will overwinter.
29 A risky riot
Would you believe it?! Some of my men have organized a mutiny. They want to return to Spain with 3 of my ships. But I have a plan already. Quick, bring me some weapons!
30 Victory
Of course they did not succeed with their foolish riot. The fate of these three captains should be a warning for everyone else. All the ships are safe and we can continue.
31 Fresh fish
My faithful crew deserves a nice dinner so they know how much I cherish their loyalty. Help me with the food because my loyal men deserve something fresh.
32 Faithful men wanted
After the mutiny I don’t have enough men for all the ships. Let’s try to recruit some from the village nearby.
33 Flooded village
The village has experienced a flood not so long ago. They are rebuilding their houses now. If we help them, more men might offer to come with us.
34 That went well
The houses are repaired and we have a full crew again. But now that we have more men we will also need more food. Refilling our supplies is in order.
35 Let’s scout
The terrain ahead looks perilous. I will send out two ships to scout the way ahead. Bring us some wood in the meantime so we can make repairs on the remaining ships.
36 This can’t be true!
One of the ships has deserted and set course back to Spain. Let’s try to catch up to them. I will pay you nicely if you help me in this chase.
37 Too bad.¦
We could not catch them. They were too fast and we need to continue to the west. But I’ll keep my promise. I will even give you these gems if you get us some new harpoons.
38 Clearing the path
We have found some exotic drift wood in the sea. I will sell it to you if you are interested. I am sure many beautiful things can be built from it.
39 Fishing troubles
The weather is nice and sea is calm. I hope that our luck has turned and we will have no more complications. Unfortunately the fish don’t bite here. And I’m hungry.
40 Suspicions
We are nearing some islands. I would like to exchange a few of my men there. I may be a bit paranoid but after so many betrayals can you blame me?
41 Modern architecture
The local people live in shacks made from palm leaves. It may be fine in good weather but in a storm it will be no good. Let’s show them how to build proper stone houses.
42 Islands of thieves
I can’t believe this! We build them houses and they steal from us! I don’t want to stay here any longer than necessary. But let’s try to get our money back from them.
43 Can’t calm down
I am so aggravated after this incident! Leaving these cursed islands as soon as possible might help. But I could also use something sweet to calm my nerves.
44 A bit of luck
At last some luck! We have made a big catch and now have so many fish we have nowhere to store them. Can you get us some barrels?
45 Quality is essential
While fishing some of our harpoons broke. I don’t want to be ungrateful but try to get some of higher quality next time.
46 Bringing gifts
We are nearing some islands again. This time I will be more cautious. But let’s try to get on the natives good side with some gifts first. Gold is always a good option.
47 Rivals
The local ruler is named Humabon and he is friendly. He has asked me to help him defeat his rival from the other island. I might do that but first I will need more men.
48 Talking business
Humabon has convinced me to help him. But we need to talk about the details of his plan first. Talking business is always more pleasant over dinner.
49 A risky plan
Let’s try to come to Humabon’s rival with a friendly offer of trade. He might be interested in some pretty marble. They don’t have such stone here on the islands.
50 It went bad
The negotiations did not go well and then they attacked us. I barely escaped with my life. We will need some crutches for our injured.
51 Relieve the pain
This was a failure. At least I am still alive and we can continue on our journey. But now let’s take a few days respite and enjoy something sweet to lessen the pain.
52 We are grateful
Humabon’s people have helped us greatly and many of our men were saved thanks to them. I would like to give them some more gold for their help.
53 Rusty anchor
Now it’s time to set sails again. Unfortunately while we were here an anchor on one of our ships has corroded. Quickly get us a new one so we can leave soon.
54 Water under deck
We are not sailing more than a few days and already it seems our main ship is taking on water. Send some sailors to gather wood on the island nearby for the repairs.
55 Farewell Trinidad
Unfortunately the ship is still not in a good shape. We better send her home the way we came. We should give the men some of our provisions for the trip.
56 Last repairs
Let’s make some last repairs on the ship and let’s go. We need to continue to our destination. It should not be far now.
57 Spice Islands
At last we are here, the Spice Islands. We have to take as much of the spices as we can fit inside our ships. But the merchant wants a lot of precious stones for them.
58 Time to go home
Now let’s head home. I can’t wait to see my family again. We just need to buy some supplies for the remaining part of our voyage.
59 Last few miles
I hope there will be no more complications. If my calculations are correct we should arrive home soon. Let’s celebrate that with a bit of chocolate.
60 Welcome home!
Here we are, home again. I can already see my family waiting on the pier. I have completely forgotten about a gift for my son. Let’s make him a rocking horse.
That's all partner! I'm really surprised that you managed to fulfill all assigned tasks. As a token of my gratitude, I give you my most favourite ship.
