App Description

Set off on a journey of revenge against the dread pirate Cinnabar, who killed your parents, and sail the high seas!

The dreaded pirate-lord Cinnabar, scourge of the twelve seas, plagued the seafarers of the Old World in a bloody reign of terror until a brave adventurer put an end to his evil. But now he is back from the dead, seeking revenge, with the dark powers of voodoo at his command.

A fantasy adventure from Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone in which YOU are the hero!
