Economy

While we are talking about water, we may as well mention the towns main source of income. This consits of sacrificing small children to demi-gods that "control" the crop success. In turn for these sacrificies, the town recieves protection from the corn. You probably think that the corn just wouldn't grow. Not the case. If the sacrifice isn't made, then the corn becomes mobile and begins attacking the residents until the next full monn, or more commonly called in the town, the bloodmoon. So, about the economy, the main income source comes from luring strangers into the town to be killed by the corn, then stealing thier wallets. There are also a fair amount of prostitution, and it is considered an honerable profession. The townspeople also grow rocks. But only specificly rocks, not stones, pebbles, boulders, big rocks or small rocks, just rocks. They sell these rocks to the nearby snakes on a plane that live in the river to the north, known as "the poopwind". The average male townsperson makes 10 a year. The average female makes 6.75 (prostitution ain't pay well when ya aint learned).
