50 of 365 – The Gates Pt 25


“The Phoenix Bird told me exactly what to do, but I think I was still riding the adrenaline high from the near-death experience in the Lightswitch compound. I climbed up the table, strode boldly into the middle and politely asked for a piece of food to take back to the Phoenix Bird. I mean, why not? Honesty is often the best policy.”

“I crouched in the bushes as the giants took in their meal. If you were to have been seated between The Bronzesmith and The Wayfinder, and turned suddenly in your chair to face the foliage, perhaps dropping on your hands and knees by some odd inclination, you would have easily spotted me among the foliage. This is all to say that I was very well hidden in my opinion, waiting for my moment…”

24 of 365 -Jig Bread


Jig Bread is a delicious pastry. Flaky dough rolled up with just enough layer of mok cream (sweetened with honey and mixed with a bit of cinnamon), it’s left to rise. It’s given a leavening boost and set into a mold while rising, so that it resembles the rolling clouds of the region. They are occasionally dusted with powdered sugar and can be drizzled with maple syrup for a weekend breakfast treat.

Kelp – Standard variety

I haven’t dug into the undersea agriculture of this region yet. In my limited imaginings, I’d assume that it consists of many varieties of kelp and some sea melons. There is the Corrungus Forest, but respect for nature and the tardigrades would surely prevent the cutting down of any of the fungi there.

17 of 365 – Fish


The marine region, understandably, is very invested in their fish. Every morning you can venture into one of the various markets around town and buy all of the freshest meats and produce the season has to offer. A fish this size would likely be split among multiple families or used for a feast. Something of this size and quality would be appropriate for the royal table as well.

Cheating a bit on this one, this is an old comic panel. But I wanted to feature this fish!
