MANY VALIANT MEN HAVE ATTEMPTED ITS RECOVERY, BUT NONE HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN POSSESSING IT FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME. THE SETTING IS ANCIENT GREECE AND YOU ARE ULYSSES. THE KING HAS REQUESTED AN AUDIENCE WITH YOU, TO ASSIGN YOU THE TASK OF RETRIEVING THE "GOLDEN FLEECE", AND RETURNING IT SAFELY TO HIM.
