New York started as a Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam. After a mere 40 years, it became a British Colony of New York. Walk the narrow winding streets of historic downtown where the mighty city has begun and see some of the most fantastic sights, such as Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty. You'll walk along Wall Street, and you'll stand next to the impregnable Federal Reserve. Have you heard of "Treasure Island"? An unfortunate pirate that inspired this story will be guiding your quest.

It's always the same dream. You are trying to open an old chest. You struggle with the rusted lock, then the heavy lid gives way and reveals a treasure of silk, muslin, sugar, opium, and gold coins. You grasp for it, but it escapes your reach. You start gasping for air, realizing that you are underwater, and... you wake up.

You are a descendant of the most unfortunate pirate ever to sail the high seas — the infamous William Kidd. He was accused of piracy, and executed.

His treasure was never found...
