Magosa, a tiny trade village.

Magosa is a tiny trade village one day walk from Altaruk, along the Altaruk-Gulg road. Magosa was founded by a small group of ex-slaves. There are only twenty-two permanent residents that live in the village directly, with a small erdlu ranch within half a days walk from the village. The leader of the village is called the Pasha. The Pasha was selected when the village was founded and no plans were made for the transfer of power if the current Pasha dies. Magosa has eleven acres of yucca trees growing in the hills around the village.
Magosa is nearly self sustaining, but needs trade to survive. The village can produce many survival goods from their yucca trees, like clothing and food, and is aided by the nearby erdlu ranch. However, the village's well is barely adequate to provide for the village and the yucca trees. Magosa also does not have a weaponsmith, armorsmith, or a supply of obsidian.
The bone gates of Magosa are closed at night and the entrance hallway has two additional gates to slow down an attack. The open air market area is often set up with tents to sell the few goods the residents produce. The roofs of the buildings are made of erdlu hide and the walls are stone or wattle and daub. The outside walls and entrance hallway walls are two feet thick stone. Inside walls are ten inches thick and made of wattle and daub.
The village, when measured from the outside, measures 225 feet by 199 feet. Slaves are not permitted inside the walls of Magosa, but are officially tolerated outside.

Imports: Water, Weapons, Obsidian, Rice, Hemp, Livestock
Exports: Fruit, Clothing, Alcohol, Erdlu Eggs, Bone and Stone Tools
