'Morada' is a fictitious Caribbean Island, and its history is a mixture of ingredients taken from the history of a number of Caribbean islands. I haven't had time to check this out, but it seems interesting. Please, send me some feedback if you either play the game and/or read the entire history of 'Morada'.
