In 1972, Moorish Settlers founded a small trading outpost near the Water, shipping fish and salt inland, and shipping copper, lumber, and furs outward. As new merchants came, the City grew naturally, and trade with other city states became the bread and butter of it's people. Eventually other Moors attempted to conquer the City many times, and Moorsbay's defense grew exponentially, until it was surrounded by two 50 foot walls, and having an all-citizens guard equipped with some of the best weapons.
One Major historical account of early Moorsbay is "Cha Tales Ah Moorsbay". It is unknown who wrote the short novel, as it has been transcribed many times. The original copy is written upon clothe scrolls in Moors Script, and kept in the Historical Vaults of Yale at the behest of Moorish Historical Enthusiasts. Many copies have been made in this fashion, though in New Yonkers, bound books are printed and shipped to all manner of locations, in Moorish, English, and Russian.
