It is the year 1580. You've just arrived from the Low Countries to work in Norwich as a weaver. They call your folk The Strangers, but most locals are welcoming. Your friends, fellow Strangers, have sent you an address where you'll find safe lodgings. Before you get there, you want to visit a number of important locations on the way, and register with the authorities. You will also need to solve some challenges at each point.
