It is the fourth year of the reign of Emperor Travianus Augustus Caesar, and the Tortius is sailing through the dangerous “Sea of Storms” to the “Latonic Provinces”. However, the ship is hit by a sudden storm and thrown off-course. After several days being tossed around the ocean, the waves drive the ship into the rocky coastline of an island. The Tortius is destroyed, and the crew are marooned. From the position of the stars, Octavius recognises the island is not one known to the Romans, and as such, rescue is unlikely. Seeing a plentiful supply of food, the crew decide to settle on the island. don’t forget to download the data files!
