Colonel Spencer Percy Yarborough
This is a campaign starting in November of 1932. The players find themselves invited to work for the Adventure Earth Company, a company whose specialty is providing adventure travel to those who can afford it. The company’s advertisements claim: “Fantastic Vacations for Distinguished Individuals.” The company is headquartered in New York City, New York, USA. Testimonials by well-to-do and influential clients seem to confirm this. On the employment end, the Adventure Earth Company has a reputation for hiring the most experienced guides, experts, linguists, and security, hand-picked by Col. Yarborough himself, in order to assure all adventure–vacations provide rewarding experiences in luxury, style, and safety for the clients. The pay is considerable, especially for the Great Depression. The President and founder of the company is Colonel Spencer Percy Yarborough, “a Captain of Industry, a Veteran of the Great War, a Collector of Wonders, and Adventurer Extraordinaire,” as his press releases state. The AEC advertising states that “the Colonel’s only dream is to share his passions with the world and to encourage the Explorer’s Spirit in like-minded gentlemen,” but very little is publicly available about him.
