New Land

In my telescope, I spotted what looked like a new continent to the east. New and pristine land! Unspoiled by the savages with their casinos, strip malls and strip clubs!

I travelled across the void in my trusty airship to Explore.
Oh dear. The western parts of it were defiled by the blight already. Which should be expected. The foul curse of No Entry would make travel difficult in the defiled parts, while gaudy For Sale signs littered the plains.

It looked better inland, where the rolling plains were empty.
I was joined by a few of Caledon's bravest, eager to Explore this new found land. Travelling eastwards with miss Nabila Nadir, we came to the eastern edge of the continent.

As I looked out into the void, I was put in mind of the works of H.G. Wells.

"The sea stretched away to the south-west, to rise into a sharp bright horizon against the wan sky. There were no breakers and no waves, for not a breath of wind was stirring. Only a slight oily swell rose and fell like a gentle breathing, and showed that the eternal sea was still moving and living."
