Centuries ago, the lucrative spice trade compelled the prosperous nations of the world to explore alternate routes to the sources of these precious goods. These nations took to the seas to seek out exotic lands. This led to the discovery of the famed Spice Islands where the most valuable spices in the world were found. These spices were worth more than their weight in gold and some only grew on these islands. This discovery led to further expedition, competition… and later, war. This era became known as the Age of Exploration. This is a time of prosperity and opportunity, you find yourself traveling on the high seas in search of these exotic wonders.
