TRANSIT ISLAND - OUR FUTURE MALTA Ever since the harbormasters managed to form the basis for the mighty Aretan Navy, it had looked for a purpose. And here she was, in the form of a beautiful desert island, south of the Viking Capital, Nidaros. King Cyc and King Civius both realized that defending Ghandi was of imminent importance, now that we wanted to spread Ibbisine Faith south, in the great global duel against evil Confucianism, a brethren religion to the wicked Taoism. Only the Aretan Navy, thanks to the Ancient Harbormasters, could handle the Viking Navy. We feared that the militarily inferior English would succumb to the strong Vikings, but we knew that a token force of superbly elite Aretan Marines would do the job. I already prepared a Galleon with a settler and two riflemen marines to sail to Transit Island and build a strategic Kings Port. I hope I got the nobility and the people behind on this one, and of course the clergy, that want Ibbisine Faith to prevail. Civius will add a map here.
