The port of Malaya is a humble little town full of friendly and hospitable people.
Recently, a letter has been spread around the towns of Rune-Midgarts, which details the strange discovery of a fishing vessel's crew. They had become lost and had stumbled upon a previously unknown civilization. Here is a transcript:
Last day of the 7-day long coastal fishing. After noticing that one of our fishing net has been swept off by the currents, we set sail to the east in order to recover it. We have managed to locate the fishing net, however, our ship was swept off by the very same currents that carried away our precious tool.This letter has encouraged many traders and adventurers to make a voyage out to this wondrous place: Port Malaya.
Sailing aimlessly for months at end, we've already depleted our source of water and rations. Just when we were at our limits on fishing to quell our hunger, we have spotted an island off to the east where no sailors have ever gotten to—Port Malaya.
Despite the grim looks on our faces, the inhabitants of Port Malaya greeted and provided us with hospitality.
Upon first glance, we discovered various new plants, land animals and aquatic life forms as well as modern technology from places within the Port Malaya Town.
Many foreign traders that our kingdom have not yet come in contact with can be seen along the roads in this city. The amount of products being traded in this city exceeds three or four times that of Rune-Midgarts's largest harbor, many of which are new and mysterious. What surprised us the most was their modern medical technology and the existence of a hospital; the existence of a mysterious civilization.
Our wish to return to our homeland came true with the help of the Mayor of Port Malaya. He wanted to keep a friendly relationship with our kingdom, providing us with a new ship loaded with various precious Port Malaya-exclusive products on board. We set sail to the west.
We will sail back to our homeland. We hope that the information we bring will be of use to the Midgard adventurers to start their journey anew.
Unnamed Fishing Boat Captain
Some time after adventurers began traveling to Malaya, a dark fog of spirits overran the island. The once hospitable people of Malaya became withdrawn and wary, giving visitors the cold shoulder wherever they went. To this day, Malaya continues to be shrouded in a mist of darkness.
