It's 1716 and you are the captain of a Spanish treasure ship...known as a galleon... sailing back from the lands Spain has conquered in the Caribbean, Central and South America and parts of present day Florida, Texas and Mexico. Your ship is filled with cargo that will make you rich: precious stones, gold, spices and timber.
Unfortunately, as you are sailing back to Spain, your ship falls behind the rest of the fleet making you a prime target for the pirates who roam these waters. You are taken prisoner and now those pirates want to get some information from you.
For sure you would not want to be a pirate's prisoner! Gruesome, gory and fascinating.
