INKTOBER DAY 20 (BLUFF): The ‘Ashan Smoking Bluff is a shady place, both literally and figuratively.
Chimneys stick out of this buttressed bluff, belching out thick, sooty smoke that blocks out the sun. That’s because it contains a hidden underground factory for herbal cigarettes. And the factory gets rich off a support staff of prisoners, who keep the conveyor belts running smoothly.

INKTOBER DAY 14 (EMPTY): Qir is an evacuated town deep in Bavel territory. The place used to be a bustling spring and oasis, until the day when the shoresh roots burst forth from the earth — and a giant bottomless pit formed in the town square. Like a vacuum, the pit began sucking flimsy homes and palm trees into the void, and the town had to evacuate.
When the Bavel Macrostructure conquered the area, it practiced its construction prowess by building a giant wall made of asphalt and wax to seal off the pit.
