Pirates of the caribbean matte painting

The Caribbean, Summer,1681

The Catholic church has been expanding into the Caribbean and attempting to eliminate the scourge of piracy. No one has been more devout and vehement then Almirante del Nero, commander of the Armada Barlavento. Nero, under orders from the church has been amassing wealth from his Spanish Privateers in order to build an Armada large enough to conquer the Spanish Main and rid it of pirates. Having received word of this the Brethren Court launched a massive secret attack on his cargo ships and made off with an estimated $7 million worth of booty, angering del Nero and setting back his plans by at least a decade.

The pirate captains who stole the treasure, under orders from the brethren court, hid the treasure on an uncharted island and all information concerning it was supposedly destroyed. In reality the Brethren kept a single map that was to be brought back to Tortuga so the fortune could be used in later years to help the captains secretly retire.

The map had been entrusted to one of the captains who participated in the original raid, a captain known as One Eyed William. William was attacked enroute by Antonio de Silva and to protect the map he divided it into 4 pieces, giving them to his First Mate, Master Gunner and the Cook before disappearing with the fourth.

Annabelle Stuart, captain of the Busty Belle, has obtained a piece of the map. She has begun a search to retrieve the treasure to deny it to del Nero and then use it to ruin him just like he ruined her father. Unfortunately there are other interests vying for the map as well.
