Założenie Tarantis (Tarantis Founded)
As the above events unfold on the Pazidan Peninsula and to the east towards Viridistan, the city of Tarantis was founded on Dahute Bay. Tarantis was founded in 1792 BCCC (2,541 years ago) by two nomadic tribes, the Gishmesh Tribe and the Paldorian Clan, whose ancestors participated in the sack of the Dragon Empire in its final days. The Gishmesh Tribe originated just south of the Lake of the Crown Beast and followed the Azurerain River, finally selecting the present location of Tarantis on which to settle and build a permanent base for their raiding operations. The Paldorian Clan, skilled sailors and fishermen, originally lived southeast of Tarantis but moved up the river to find better fishing. The merging of these two disparate clans was the result of numerous raids upon the Paldorians by the Gishmesh. Over the course of time, due to intermarriage and increasing familiarity to one another, peace was declared, the raids ceased and members of the two tribes became merged into one group, though the aggressive Gishmesh were still the dominant force.
Originally only a cluster of dwellings and a few mercantile and craft establishments protected by earthworks, the growing city found an increased need for protection after several raids by the ruthless Karzulun – a nomadic tribe east of the area of Tarantis – between 1882 and 1885 BCCC nearly obliterated the town. In 1885 BCCC, the city of Tarantis was officially laid out, rebuilt, and fortified with high stone walls for protection. In that year, also, the first hereditary monarch came to power and began to organize the existing government of Tarantis. However, the dominant strain of the aggressive Gishmesh made total rule impossible; the government only managed to restrain total anarchy in this raucous city, not to control it.
