Just beyond the steep southern walls of Sentinel lays the Rain Catcher Fields. An array of johads that capture moisture from upon the desert’s air, whether from the sparse rainfall or morning dew, which can be a vital source of precipitation in coastal deserts such as the Alik’r. This water is then carried into the city by the workers in large earns.
But now the water stored in the johads has become tainted, giving off a peculiar taste and smell which has attracted giant Assassination Beetles. These hostile insects are attacking the workers, both at the johads, and in their camps. If we do not put an end to this contamination, then soon the city of Sentinel could run short of fresh water.
