Native Lifeforms: Mosses & Fungi[edit]

The only native life consists of millions of different types of mosses and fungi as well as edible worms that form the staple diet. Most of the inhabitants are experts in the preparation and use of hallucinogenics made from the worm excretions and various fungi. Rumor has it that there is a secret sect of Cteonan's assassins who practice the art of undetectable poisoning. For most people their only contact with the botanical arts of Anshaar is when they consume the sacred fungus Nanactl at the Festival of the Dead.

History and background[edit]

Colonized by natives from the Andes near the end of the Rule of Man, the local people have physically adapted to the extremely thin atmosphere.
