Let’s take a journey with Bristol Expedition.
Before the Bristol Expedition became widely-known, there were three men who were known as the great explorers: Potter, Hermes, and Captain Flint.
Captain Flint was tricked into killing Potter (Jim’s father) and took a map of the Gold Islands from him. Captain Flint then collected all the pieces of the Heavenly Gate and finally opened it. But it turned out the Gate of Hell. He fell into Hell and became a ghost.
Hermes, the sole survivor of the group, took over the throne of Bristol where he was welcomed and admired deeply by its people. Bristol, the city of Expedition.
One day Jim, the hero of the story, happens to find a book. The book is none other than the last nautical logbook for an auction which contains a secret of the highest bid.
