Blood in the Water

Information based on version Current game version is

A Pirate Hunter in New Spain has sent you to hunt Sons of Cortez ships.

Who are the Sons of Cortez?

They say they are the descendants of lost conquistadors and claim to sail from a mysterious retreat along a stretch of the shoreline known as El Dorado Coast. Their story isn't all that hard to believe, and I for one think it might well be true, for the most part. As you might have heard, Hernan Cortez is the reason they call these waters the Burning Sea, and he left many sailors and prisoners behind. Whatever their origins, they are a menace to all ships in the region and will offer you no quarter, so offer none in return.
