How dare Shylock debase the name of the graceful and regal lemur with the slur of "monkey?"
This is my absolute favorite kind of tale here at the WL: something seemingly wondrously bizarre that operates on an internal logic. +1
Literally three days after I start writing about Lemuria, a supposed continent that exists between India, Madagascar, and Australia, scientists find evidence of a sunken continent in the Indian ocean.
Am I a reality bender? o.o
That meant at least one murder, one lustful episode, one blasphemy against the great Lemur, and several other atrocities were committed every day.
Yeah, you totally half-assed that. :p C'mon. Be bold. List them all, or leave one or two as atrocities to terrible to be named.
Besides that, I like this.

I was going to star Maps. However, two other admins (being complete bastards) have already done so. So be it! This was my second choice. I hope it wears the star well.

[…] Shylock was not a member of any of the Eight Kingdoms, and instead came from a fabled Ninth Kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Lands
Italicized portion not translated; the Lemurian word for "Lands" is "tofewrn", implying that the "Kingdom of Lands" is actually called "Land" in another language.
Not knowing anything else about the world your Lemuria resides in- particularly its name- this may be a stretch, but is the implication that Shylock's homeland was an alternate Earth?
