    Note: a civilization should be starting up there soon due to my missing curragh that sailed West((unless the thing sunk)) on my second turn I think it was.

    Hopefully, I can get done all the way to the Western Seas at least by dinner. If not, I don't think we'll have an update.

    I have extremely heavy doubts that a single curragh would be able to both cross the Atlantic and provide enough people and resources to start a civilization.

    No. there would be peoples already there and they would share their knowledge with these peoples and might even be worshipped as gods. Other than that, they would mix and a new people would be born. About the curragh -> point taken. You never know though. Stranger things have happened. :p

    Terrance, you mean 'i don't think we'll have an update today', right? :0

    Or it could be like with the conquistadors in the Americas and they could be tossed out, and possibly butchered along the way... hopefully you don't run into cannibals. :)

    I think he's going in a more Welsh sort of direction with it.

    Not saying the ships went to Wales, I'm referring to certain allegations of Welsh princes making pre-Columbian transatlantic voyages and integrating into native tribes.

    Or, the curragh missed the Americas altogether and landed in Asia.
    I doubt the crew could survive that sort of voyage.

    Or they could land in Japan and become my slaves.

    XD I like this convo. SKILORD would be right. There would be a nation of people down there ((if the curragh actually got there, he was a good sailor who loved the sea and navigated by the stars not like he went beneath the equator or anything)) that would be a mixture of Celtic Druidism and the Mayan culture. :D I can see how that could possibly mix.

    The awesomeness of them making it is greater than if they didn't.

    Not to say I gave them plot armor, or anything.

    Nice discussion.

    Three examples:
    1) Samurai armour and weaponry found in a Mayan Temple
    2) Polynesians crossing the Pacific in canoes
    3) What might be a Chinese settlement found in Nova Scotia((Lots of raised stone platforms on top of a mountain - look rectangular in shape))

    Madoc?

    There's also the East Bay Walls, the Roman and Greek artifacts in the New World, the Inuit fisherman that washed up in Ireland...
