We can't afford to waste resources out here.
Over time, we've learned to take anything that looks even remotely useful, and be creative using what we have. I've turned a skull into a boat and a sethrak into a tent flap.

Ranishu stomach acid makes wicked poison, but it's nasty to collect. Don't try to bottle it. Just bring me their stomachs whole and intact. No leaks!
