This was magical nautical adventure to an mystical un-inhabited island, Each guest brought food & landed on the Chronos Island beach at high tide. A strange cult greeted them to a land of sundials, treats, elixirs, and herbal mixes. While guests waited until tides subsided, they searched for buried treasures, and were offered potions. Adventurists led groups to the gateway where the gatekeeper, a mystical sailor warned them of what was ahead. From the gateway, Guests passed an opera singer, then entered the miner's cave, where a solo miner was still mining for manganese rock. Hacking away with his pick axe, he sung a folk song about the stolen manganese, while musicians played the Chronos Shanty theme Song inside the cave. Guests then ate from a dynamite box filled with edible manganese rocks. Guests continued across the coast & discovered a man serving shrubs, a 1800's herbal drink, and a soldier who still believed he was fighting in WW1 in 1915. Next up was the futurist who offered guests spirulina balls, an algae based food available when the entire earth had been submerged in water. The Futurist warned (people of the present) to watch out for over-consumption of manganese. Then guests circled around the island to discover clansman leader, Selim Woodsworth (resident of the island in 1850s), a man completely outside of time. He congratulated guests, had them launch their bottles (with newly written messages for the future) out to sea, and told them to combine their foods together for a grand picnic/potluck. Climbing to the island pinnacle was only for the brave, experienced climbers, whose ascent was gifted with a grandious view of the great sea. Finally we all gathered on the beach as one large colony, watching the sun recede into the horizon. As the cool wind rushed across the waves, we knew it was time we must return back to our boats, to the land we came from.
