Exploration of Terra Palmis

Year 264. Decimus Scipio is dead.


And the further exploration may begun. Hundreds of ships docked again in the Atlantica city (the abandoned large city mentioned before), and big group of 120 explorers started to go to the north. They went near abandoned desert town, and started to go further and further to the desert. They built small camp in the desert, in case of extreme conditions when they will go further to the desert.


Fortunately, nothing extreme occured, larger part of explorers stayed in the camp, and smaller went deeper to the huge desert.

After nine hours of walking they saw small, but very deep canyon. Fortunately, there was a bridge through.


But the bridge was very damaged, and when first soldier stepped on it, it falled to the canyon (with him too). They had to circumvent it. But it was very small canyon, on the both ends was entrance to the cave, and after 15 minutes they were on the other side.bridgefallen.png

After long way they entered magnificent place. Huge rocks resembling mushrooms, and a big rock arch. Something, that nobody ever saw. They camped there through night, and some explorers painted this place too.


But it started to be hot. Very hot and very dry weather. They were lost in the huge desert, only some dry palms were along way... But finally they found the end of desert, where the lush forest was beginning.


After one day, they reached the shoreline. Was it really Atlantis? They went not further than 30 kilometers. But they were without drinkable water and nobody wanted to return back to the desert. But, they found something. It was a ship. Roman ship. Maybe blown there in the huge oceanic storm.


They entered it. It was vacant. But there was big stock of drinkable water. They grabbed vessels and sailed back to the sea.


They sailed two days along the coast to the east, and finally they came to the Atlantica city.


Another missions proved, that Terra Palmis is an Island. Not big island. Maybe the all remains of the Atlantis. On this island visualisation can be Atlantica city seen on small peninsula on the south.
