Africa, the second largest continent on Earth, explored for hundreds of years, birthplace of mankind, yet never truly known.
The year is 1885. Jessica Quartermain and William Broadside are starting their expeditions into the heart of great Africa. The rivals are gathering up everyone they can-- and you're in the heat of it.
join a crew and begin the perilous trek into the savannahs, mountains, caves, and sulfur pools of the treacherous primal continent... and the creatures that the natives say stalk the tunnels by day and the grasslands by night, rarely seen, but whose aftermath is always noticed.
Jessica was what many would consider a "tomboy" all her life, never shying away from a fight, and never afraid to get her hands dirty. Only problem is sometimes shes a bit TOO overzealous, which lead her and her lust for adventure and competitiveness into an expedition against Broadside to deep Africa
the son of a governor, William had always had the wealth and political power on his side. People love him; hes kind, generous, artistic-- but also can become incredibly violent. once he found Quartermain was planning to respond with an expedition of her own to his consideration, he leaped right in to claim Africa as his own.

That pig Broadside has done it. He's taking the trip: he's going to Africa. I thought he'd given up after our whole Himalayas expedition. Soon he'll try to take Antarctica... and I'll have to take it from him again. I guess we have more in common than I thought, though; we don't give up easily, and we both jump at the excuse to go on an expedition. Only problem is he actually gets funding... nobody seems to be willing to pay for mine. Ah well; I've learned to deal with this kind of mentality. Speak loud until you need a pistol. Works every time.

The crew is ready, the trucks are ready, the guns are loaded, and there's a good wind tonight. Africa's secrets cannot be withheld for long. And Quartermain doesn't even know anyone is daring to step foot into the continent! It is beautiful, isn't it? Finally, something that I myself can claim, without Quartermain butting in. What kind of name is Quartermain, anyways? It is so unfit for an explorer...
(I'm sorry, I really have no clue how Victorians talk... also yes, that's a reference to Alan Quatermain from King Solomon's Mines. He's an explorer, and... yeah, Yknow, you get it.)
