Black Spot

"The Black Spot is a round scrap of paper, black on one side, used as a warning or message among pirates. In a powerful scene, the mutineers present Long John Silver with a Black Spot to remove him from command, but the pirates lack any paper except for a Bible. Silver recognizes the paper as a page from Revelations ("...Without are murderers and dogs..."), and calls them all fools for cutting a Bible and bringing a curse upon themselves.

The game is an effort to illustrate both the power and fragility of a single scrap of paper with a few written words (or in the case of the treasure map, three X's). " - Author's description
