Tech Teotl Camp
A clearing in Tlapan’s jungle, only a few hours hike from a nearby mining camp, is the home of a cult that believe’s its leader to be in communication with a pretech AI god. A few tents and prefabs house the dozen or so members of the cult’s rotating population. Peaceful and generally disinterested in sector affairs, the cult is a blip on the radar for most, though some Union government officials have started keeping tabs on the cultists.
The cult roasts the occasional local rodent, but mostly subsists on the fruits, vegetables, and roots that they grow in and around the clearing. These include fire fruit, a cross between Old Terran oranges and native xeotl vines; the result has thick skin to protect against bugs, pink pulpy flesh, and a spicy citrus taste.
