Welcome to the Jungle
It is February 1519 and you stand among many Spaniards watching as the only ship left sails home. Hernan Cortes gave the command to have all but the one ship destroyed so that we must survive on this land or die.
You stand a young man, full of life and wonder. You saw an open spot aboard an expedition that was going to lands of wild, overgrown, and mysterious lands. Will you be one of those that returns home to Spain or one that finds a new home here?
The new world is filled with death and destruction.
This is not historically accurate, just a forewarning.
Note: Pressed for time like many others.
