you are a skilled diver living on Hardscrabble Island, a small
seaport past its prime. You will try to salvage a treasure
from one of four shipwrecks; if you are successful, you will
be fabulously and enormously respected among old salts. Some
characters in the story will help you; others will try to
stop you any way they can. If you can think logically and
keep your throat intact, the treasure can be yours.
There is more than
one shipwreck in Cutthroats, but in each story you will be
trying to recover only one particular treasure. When you restart
the story, you may find yourself diving for a different treasure.
