From the introduction:
The Plundering Time [is] set in early colonial Maryland, a time of intense sectarian, political, and cultural conflict. You will join your party in fleeing the burning wreckage of your adopted hometown, out into the unmapped and untamed wilds of The New World.
Your characters are only humans - not heroes. You will roam the dangers of this land struggling every day with the forces of nature and the varying antagonistic factions that will harry your every move. Whether a gentleman of England’s upper classes or a slave from the west shores of Africa, this conflict has the potential to change your fortunes forever. As the class structure of the Old World crumbles, what new life will you make for yourself?
