The year is 1848 and you are about to embark on a 2000 mile journey across North America from Independence, Missouri to Oregon Country on the Pacific coast via the fabled Oregon Trail. Awaiting upon your arrival, should you survive the arduous trek, will be 640 acres of free farmland in the fertile Willamette Valley. If you're up for the challenge, start by naming the leader of your wagon team and choosing your profession.
Wagon leader's name:
Banker - More starting cash but no useful pioneering skills.
Carpenter - Moderate starting cash and the ability to repair and maintain your wagon.
Farmer - Little starting cash but highly skilled in caring for your oxen.
Despite the difficulty of the journey, you'll be brining along your large family. Only married couples are eligible for the full 640 acres (single settlers receive half that much), and you'll need your children to be your workforce once you arrive on your new farmland.
