History and background[edit]

The people have cut their citadels into cliffs and use natural caves to construct dew-traps in order to try and scavenge what moisture is in the air. They grow what food crops they can in greenhouses and sheltered spots, including various desert weeds, which are processed to obtain hallucinogens. Other rare plants they grow provide drugs and medicines, which is the mainstay of the export economy.
