Part one of orientation in the "Mhakutan's Adventures"
On the shores of the seemingly deserted island, Mhakutan, a flock of green parrots, native to the island, fill the sky overhead, scanning the deep water of the arctic sea for fish. Even though the fish of Mhakutan are fast, swimming up to 93 miles per hour, the parrots are faster, swooping down and grabbing the fish with their sharp talons.
Though it may seem alone in the middle of the ocean, the island of Mhakutan is hardly inhabited. Many creatures, different from the rest of the animals in the rest of the world roam Mhakutan. The food chain is also drastically different, as many animals here have powers - magical powers beyond imagination.
Hi. I'm Mhaku. I'm the one who's story is told here. But first, let me show you around. There are many native tribes. My family is from the Fox tribe, to translate it to English. There's no written form using your alphabet to write our words.
There are many native tribes on the island of Mhakutan. Some allies, some enemies. They don't argue about too serious things. Just mostly territory, ruling, and the way of life. Some have similar cultures, some seem like different worlds. But their religion brings them together.
Their god who is worshipped by all on the island, is the god of all gods, Mhakutan. He is the creator of all things, and knows the most powerful magic in all of the world. He is feared greatly by his enemies, and honored by all who worship him. He rules the island of Mhakutan and all of the different tribes, despite rivalries, join together to worship and perform religious ceremonies.
This is one of our praying sessions, once a day when the sun comes up. The whole island gathers together. It is a ceremonious time for all to meditate.
We have allies in many parts of the world. Our strongest are the hobbits, who live on the closest land form near us. Many a time they will come and visit, bringing some of their culture and their way of life along. For example, once Bilbo Baggins came over for a little "break" after his "eleventy first" birthday, and he showed us how to build sturdy, safe "hobbit homes," as we call them.
