Name of Colony: Belgrano

Name of Founding City (if different): Rhone

Location of Founding Colony (Latitude by Longitude and description): 7, 9 . A small portion of their colony is on the land, the rest is underwater, built on the wall of the sea bed.

Administration (how its run, what kind of government): They are lead by a chief who's leadership is chosen through a fairly complicated compition when a challenger challenges the chief. Their current chief would be chief . Their main industry would be fishing, though they also can get by well with raiding near by places.

History of Expedition (how it got started): Things were rather rough when a typhoon hit the semi-aquatic city of Atocha. It tore apart buildings, and even washed away a large group of merdon families. The few that survived the violent move swam around for a few days, until they found a nice spot to build a new city and continue life as they normally would.

Population (remember that a food icon supplies enough food for 7500 people): ~5,000

Composition of Expedition (What kinds of people were sent, How prepared are they?): Very unprepared. Some managed to take a few basic tools with them, though they've been having to build from scratch ever since.

Equipment Upon Arrival (Anything out of the ordinary like ships, weapons, machinery): None.

Technology Level: Fairly low. They have the knowledge that coral is sharp, barnacles are hard and how to build buildings on both land and underwater. Currently their buildings would be made mainly from wood and sticks, but should have barnacles on them in time.

-Important Technologies:

~200 war mounts. They are large crabs that have the ability to use sound underwater to an effect of stunning prey. They are not naturally from such small waters, so they have to take up quite a few fish resources.

~3000 wooden spears.

Magic System: None.

Basic Info: The merdon are a race of creature that have a fish-like body and head with large fangs and eyes. They have short arms and legs, but do not walk upright for a majority of the time do to their difficulty in bending that way. They have no hair, and their natural scales do not provide too much protection for them. They are amphibians, reproduce externally and live for an average of 30 years.

Approved. You have nothing at all that would tip the balance in your favor. :P

I see you've decided to colonize smack on the gemstones.

((Yay, you'll probably have first contact with my people who are mapping the coastline of the mainland))

Gemto and his elder master, Lent, were mapping the coastline when in the distance they saw heavy movement, perhaps even buildings. "Lent, do you see that over there." "My eyes are not what they once were Gemto, let us investigate." As tuna they swam through the channel, though when they approached closer they transformed into eels so as not to be caught as food. "Look, they are civilized beings, let us go and approach them from the land." The Neonites approached the settlement of Rhone.

((Thanks for starting this off. Just to clarify, they're still eels when they approch, right?))

9/24/2009 #5

((No, they approach from the land as people so they can be identified as such, sorry if I didn't make that clear.))

((No worries, that's why I asked. Fishing for people would be just plain silly.))

Loolid the fisherman looked up from his hard work and nearly jumped in surprise. There were people there, and they hadn't even gotten their homes set up yet. He was quick to move to the nearest guard and inform him of his discovery. Soon, several armed fish men crawled toward the perimeter of the town, ready to guard against any human attacks.

((*insert murloc noise here*))

((WHOO! WoW reference!))

The men put their hands up, as Gemto translated his message into their language, as he is a member of the guild of air, "We bring peace, we wish only to speak with you."

((Video game referances FTW! And I did not realize how similar merlock and merdon are until I typed up that post...))

Most of the merdons stared in confusion at the fact a human could speak their language. The few that were less easily impressed were quick to run to grab their chief. After a few minutes, a group of ten crab riders escorted a middle aged merdon that had it's lower lip decorated and streached with dangling piercings ending in gems and rings. In a rather low voice, it growled in it's own language, "What is it you want, land dwellers? Or rather, what name you choose call yourselves by?"

"We come from across the sea to inquire about trade and peace possibly, and although we may look it we are not only land dwellers." Gemto transformed into the largest crab he knew, though it was much much smaller than the crab mounts he looked upon.

Gemto transformed back as they waited patiently for a response

9/30/2009 #11

They were still patiently waiting as it seems all the Belgrano people had magically fallen asleep at the drop of a hat!

10/2/2009 #12

By now the diplomats had fallen asleep from boredom as apparently these fish people had been frozen in their current state by aliens...

10/9/2009 #13

((Lol, spamming the Belgrano thread?))

10/9/2009 #14

((I wouldn't consider posting once a week spamming...))

10/10/2009 #15

((I really didn't mean spam, It was more along the lines of "frozen by aliens, fallen asleep, ect." sorry if my little joke offended you at all.))
