Hex Crawl 23 #261: Twin Dry Lakes

Three hexes northwest, nine north of Alakran.


These dry playa lakebeds are notable mainly for being twinned. In the rainy season they hold a thin layer of murky water, no more than knee-high, and no channels lead in or out of them. Then flocks of birds gather to drink, and the adventurous children of Kin-Yan who have learned the use of the sling sneak out to supplement their family's dinner. Adults, though, see the birds as beneath their dignity to hunt - a childish game in both senses of the word.
