Hidden for three centuries on Oak Island off the Canadian coast, Captain Kidd's bounty has taunted treasure evaded treasure seekers. Captain Kidd failed to hide the treasure prior to his capture for piracy. He was able to pass the mission on to his son Captain Robert Ryder. Ryder assembled a crew of architects and workmen to build a enclosure to ensure the treasure remained hidden from humans until the year 2012. Why 2012? Part of the treasure is vital to humanity's fate. Several organization -- the CIA, Delega Corporation, and the Keepers of the Rose -- would love to be people with the knowledge and thus the most powerful on earth.
