Excerpt from The Price of Life by Walis Harnswak
Despite the failures in the Lifestone Forest we found a way. Creating the farms were one of the most important moments in the life of our city. It allows us to feed millions of people now. The Hydrofarms are can continue to grow and feed us with very little maintenance. Walking through them is quite similar to walking through the forest. The great trees and vines growing above and the grazing Roaches and other creatures on the ground. The farms can still be dangerous though. Domesticating the many creatures needed for the farms to work has been a challenge and there are likely more challenges to come.
The trees grow from the ceiling and grow unique fruits that will drop to the ground. This food is needed to create the mold ground that allows for the large insects to live and eat.
Flora & Fauna
Massive herds of Roaches graze these farms, which continuously feeds the city. The beetles are also bred here before being sold to other merchants and noble families. Smaller insects and worms were also brought here to make sure the ecosystem stays functioning.
