In 1598 A.D. Protestant England was at war with the Catholic Empires of Spain and Portugal. With the Queen's blessing, a raiding party of five trader warships set sail from London, their purpose was to establish trade with the New World. Only the Erasmus, piloted by John Blackthorne, survived the waters of the Magellan Straits to break into the Pacific.
Pursued by enemy fleets, her retreat cut off, the Erasmus turns west into uncharted seas toward mysterious China and the Japans — lands that were still the stuff of legends.
Unknown to the Protestant world, Portuguese Jesuits have gained great influence in Japan, with many feudal lords as converts.
