From the introduction:
This game is set in the 'Darkest Africa,' the setting of many famous pulp novels (like Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan series), black-and-white movie Serials, and monster movies (like The Creature from the Black Lagoon). It happens anywhere from sixty to a hundred years ago, so anachronisms shouldn't be uncommon. Everything about the setting is simplistic and direct; jungles are lush and impenetrable, deserts are trackless and deadly, men are savages or civilized no matter what ancestry, dangerous and mysterious Spirits abound. Any time you are called upon to narrate, you must fulfill these vistas or void any Reward due you.
