Description: You are the captain and crew on the good ship Saladin carrying your normal cargo plus a large quantity of silver bars and coins. While asleep in your cabin, the scoundrels on watch and the passengers have mutinied, seizing you and your loyal crew, throwing you in the hold. You overhear their plans to join Ned Low, the nastiest pirate plying Nova Scotia's waters. They are going to make you walk the plank at dawn when it is light enough for them to watch the sharks finish you off! As they slam the door behind you, you glimpse the skyline and with your keen mariner's eye, estimate that it will be light in 60 minutes. Outside the hold turned brig, you can hear the pirates partying-- no doubt, on your personal stash of rum.​​ Captain, your task is to escape the brig and to get your ship back. To do that, you will need weapons to help overcome the mutineers. While rum is on your side, time is not, even though the pirate assigned to guard you has passed out... Good luck!
