Trade and Tithes

Like its sister world, Dara, the unusual colony Vandoch has specialized in a few areas of agriculture. Unlike Dara, however, the local agriculture on Vandoch has been brought forth by millennia of careful terraforming, changing its ecosystem into a powerful machine that would rapidly collapse if not for the constant monitoring and maintenance of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Specifically, the ground- and ocean-based ecosystem has been enhanced heavily in order to support a substantial growth amongst swarm-based flying creatures. Among the most significant such creatures are the extomids, a family of flying insects rich in proteins and calcium, the winged reptile family known as snakehawks and large flying mammals called stingbacks.
