In the beginning of the game you will have to choose whom you will start playing first. There are two characters to chose from - thrifty smuggler Jazz or dreamy captain Faust. In addition, there are about 50 NPCs in the game.

     There is a world of difference between the personalities of the two characters. Jazz (a smuggler) is a representative of the world where cupidity is the driving force of life. He constantly finds himself involved in all sorts of risky undertakings, which frequently result in failure. Faust comes from the country on the other side of the sea. He is a captain of his own ship and is always busy with work that doesn't prevent him from dreaming idly. He considers the world an object of contemplation, not a source of filthy lucre.

     Having chosen your main character, you may not change to the other while playing the game, but you may meet the other character occasionally and help him overcome a variety of complicated and dangerous adventures. Playing either Jazz or Faust you will be constantly confronted with the need to unravel a variety of unusual and challenging tasks, frequently finding yourself in unexpected situations.
