The Hermit Crab, a being with powers at least equal to those of any wizard or sorcerer, dwelt on a small island in the harbour of Untunchilaamon’s capital city. The Crab took exception to the violent political disputes that had disturbed the peace of its domicile; to restore the peace, the Crab commanded Justina and Varazchavardan to declare a truce and resolve their differences. This they did. Had they disobeyed, they would have been turned inside out by a wrathful Crab, therefore the matter of their compliance is scarcely a mystery.
This is the true history of the final days of the rule of Justina Thrug over the island of Untunchilamon, and it is the only such history which is worth the price of the fooskin upon which it it is wrtten. And remember, your historian was there.
