    Captain Graham's Adventures

    Dear Settlers!

    The Excelsior has traveled to destinations far away from anything your Settlers have ever even heard of; tropical Islands, wild jungles and frozen tundras are only a few of many places Captain Graham has ventured to. She is the most experienced explorer there has ever been - and we want YOU to write about her adventures!
