This is really not ready to be put up here yet, but I am bored out of my skull, so am putting it up to give you all a taste.....
very rough sketch available as well.
----------------------
After having wandered for centuries throughout northern Sarvonia, the Aohu'o realized that they were not wandering far enough afield. They settled for a time in the bay of whatever, and lived by fishing. The boat style they came up with had low draft, was unsinkable, extremely fast, and able to carry hundreds of Brownies. Basically it consisted of a double hull of with planks lashed between the two hulls, and a double mast or two lashed the hulls as well. Oars were also used for steering and propulsion. Most of these craft were just over a ped long.

Once the Aohu'o had perfected the art of building these craft, they made a giant one, called "the Drasil", two peds long along with several smaller craft, and using these, abandoned their home on land and set off to wander the seas. For generations they lived more on the sea than on land, living mainly by fishing and collecting floating marine plants, landing on the rare atoll only to make repairs.

The leader of the Aohu'o, Floating Kelp, later known as "the Navigator", was convinced that there had to be another continent to the west. For years he pushed the tribe to sail farther and farther west, but nothing was found. A vicious storm blew up, tearing several of the boats to pieces, and forcing the remaining three farther north then they had ever sailed. When the several-day storm was finally over, Floating Kelp spotted land far to the northeast. His popularity being at a low ebb, not too many people believed him. As the sky continued to clear, however, other saw it too. They made landfall on the western coast of Akdor two days later.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
