Food

There are now no trees taller than palmettos, short live oaks, or cypresses.  Moss, ferns, and cattails rule the greens, where the razory grass or fungal wastes haven’t taken over.

Staples—the holy trio

  • Algae (primary source of vitamins)
  • Jellyfish (primary source of protein)
  • Kelp (primary source of carbohydrate and fiber)

Other common foods

  • Grasses (proto-maize, proto-barley)
  • Lichens
  • Tomatoes, Persimmons
  • Goat Milk

Meats

  • Brain Rats (uncommon to successfully catch)
  • Dikdiks (uncommon except in eastern Sasparada)
  • Fish, Toothed Fish, Eels (common)
  • Greendeer (common; only squamids can digest greendeer; other species find them mildly toxic and not nourishing)
  • Rats, Voles, Moles, Mice, Stoats (uncommon)
  • Sea Slugs (common)
  • Sea Urchins (common)

Treats (rare)

  • Crows (eyeless), roasted or glazed with tomato-jelly and/or pollen
  • Edible Flowers
  • Edible Sponges
  • Melons
  • Pollen
  • Racemes (berries)
  • Sea Cucumbers
  • Starfish
  • Shellfish (rarely edible, as most are toxic)

Purified and purifying fat

  • Processed Sharkfat, called jajet.  Jajet is drunk as a smoothie by most sents in Pala; it’s also used before cooking to clean metals out of fish for stew, and to absorb certain toxins from algae.  Shark itself is inedible to humans
