The Gloriouse Discovery of Cyclonia Our moste loyale caravel, "His Majesty Cyc's Civius", or "HMC Civius" was built in a hurry by razing the forested hills north of Venice. It eventually sailid oute by 1320 AD, and Civius sailid straight easte, beyond horizons man had seen before. The men oure expedition got grumpy, but just before they mutineered, they saw foreign shores, new shores never seen by Arethanian eyes before. They could see numirouse fishing boats dragging up many a nombre of cages of crabbes and clammes, along what was to be knowneth as the barren Coast of Claws and Coast of Shells. These fishermen claimit they representid a certayn Tokugawa of the Khmer, with narrow eyes and a broad mustache he was indeed intimidating, but relatively freindly, as we brokered a deal over their spices for our dyes. Very true, Khmer was an impoverished, puny and inferior natione, but for now, our good and reliable juniore friendes. A couple of years after that, we met Montezuma of the Arabians, a much more fearsome nation, we could not see at all from our ship, these were much more powerful than the Khmer, had their own religion and a mighty capital at Mecca, a promised city we never got to see.
