The workweek is over and I finally got to the computer, so let’s move on.
TowerDude, avrelivs, IAM AJAK: thank you guys, it is a pleasure to know that somebody is interested
So, after a year of wandering along the coast of Antida on 25th of August (on 27th according to some sources) 1149 Klaus Monter entered the bay which was named Foggy Bay.
They anchored in a small cove on island formed by big river on the East (which natives called Hayna*) and its branch on the North.
Klaus Monter decided that this is a place where the city must be founded.
18 days were spent on repairing ship to sail home. During this time Klaus managed to draw a small map of the island and established relationships with some local tribes.
When the ship was repaired, Monter left the Foggy Bay.
He came back in a year on 29th of August 1150 and that time he was leading a fleet of 23 ships. However most of these ships were not under the flag of Viselgorth Empire.
Anyway, 367 sailors, 679 settlers and 43 warriors (most of which where retired soldiers and policemen picked up in different port cities across Maragor coast) landed on a small peninsula between Small Cove (it was called so) and estuary of Hayna and made temporary camp.
Monter named the city Viserlind** to emphasize that the city was a colony of the Empire
Meanwhile Klaus actively explored the land around the new city.
* - It is a name of the real river flowing in Belarus (my home country). However, the real Hayna is a small and calm creek, while Hayna in this CJ is a big and mighty river.
** - In Thaussvald dialect (German dialect which was the most common in Viselgorth Empire) “lind” means “city”, and “Viser” is a short name of the Empire used mainly in geographic names. So the name of the city can be read as “the city of Viselgorth Empire”.
