Colonies Brochure Project
It will be your job to create a brochure convicing people to move to your assigned colony. In the brochure, you should include:
- a map of where your colony is located
- a description of the religion practiced in the area
- some details on industry, merchants, farming, agriculture (crops), local games, dress, relations with Natives, etc.
It also might be interesting to include local information such as when the colony was formed, by whom, and for what reasons. This brochure should be written persuasively and in a salesman-like manner. Remember, you are trying to convince people to move to your particular colony!
