Devan Rensburg is anything but a born sailor. He's rather slender, quite intelligent, and he doesn't like being bossed around. Nevertheless, on a fateful day in 1857, he hired at the HLV Herald.

Herald is an exciting... and courageous adventure that cleverly addresses issues that we as a society are still struggling with today. My only criticism is that waiting for Book III & IV (released as DLC) after this amazing cliffhanger should be a real pain. '
