TORTUGA was born
At the midst of the 18th century the age of pirates came to an end.
„You will never take us down!“
300 years later the scourge of the caribbean has returned.
„If you had fought like a man, you need not be hanged like a dog!“
If a shadow roams the seas, the sound of war drums is pounding at the coasts and the smell of sulfur is in the air then they cannot be far. Only god knows what they are up to. Maybe you are next? (January 2015)
