Llamedos Jones, an explorer from Llamedos. He was hampered in his voyages of discovery by the fact he wasn’t really looking for new lands to conquer: his main priority was evangelising his sect of Strict Observance Druidism to the heathen, ie everyone who wasn’t already a Strict Observance Druid.
So he would set off in a small leather and wicker coracle, equipped with nothing more than a holy sickle, a sack of mistletoe, a small portable stone circle of the laptop variety, and a harmonium for the hymn singing.
Unfortunately, he could travel for no further than three and a half days in any direction before being compelled to return to Llamedos for the necessarily strict druidic observances and male voice choir practice once a week.
He was finally given dispensation by the circle elders to miss services and is believed to have discovered the Brown Islands by the very practical technique of continuing in a straight line until he hit something.
