In Kash, nothing official yet. However, in various translations in the
past, I've used:
Sosikra curami! Hear my story! (at the start of a traditional/legendary
story-- "Goldsword" of several months back)
Mesa leroni... One day... (lit., one day-of.it; the North Wind vs. Sun)
Another possibility: Ri lerosh cosa... In days gone by.....(cosa 'to go')
Or another: Yalesa anjuni... There was a time....(yale-sa 'there.is-past'
anju-ni 'time, period-of.it'
