In Gold Rush!
, Jerrod Wilson (the player) receives a letter from
his long-lost brother (who fled the city years before when was hastily
accused and convicted of a crime he didn't commit) asking him to join
in Sacramento, California. So, Jerrod bids farewell to his peaceful life as a newspaper editor,
and becomes a fore-runner in the the great Gold Rush of 1849, hoping to
find his brother and "strike gold".
