Fahets Wildlife

The last few days have found me returning to Fahets. Met again by the constant tiresome rain that the Age is known for amongst the Third Path members. The pumps we were using to keep the water out haven’t been able to keep up with the onslaught, as a result Sophie is now looking into something that is better suited to the job.
She’s been looking at the heavy duty ones we used in Cass along with some that the teams found in D’ni in the past.

She tells me we may have something to put in the Age tomorrow if we’re lucky (by lucky she means if she pulls an all nighter).

Currently work is hindered by a bout of thick fog, which has made it hard to see more than a meter in front of oneself, not to mention the dank musky smell and taste it leaves in your mouth.

My focus during my return has been to the wildlife that has grown remarkably quickly in the Age. The most curious of these plants are some strange pods (that I have named Norapods) that have grown, akin to cigars in shape. They have a mottled blue/yellow coloured skin which at first appears firm, but when touched you can feel that they are softer inside. We cut one of the ones near the Link in point open to investigate further, the inside was indeed a lot softer, juicy one might say, which a structure that reminds me of a tomato. We took the top half back to be tested to see if it contains anything dangerous.
