The Tribal Lands of the Ghost Dancers
While the Merchant Prince maintains the environs of Las Vegas as his own territory, it’s surrounded by lands under control of the local tribe, known as the Ghost Dancers. The Ghost Dancers are guided by the spirits Wolf and Coyote; they in turn are followers of Spider Grandmother. They allow the lands around the thin place to be controlled by the Merchant Prince because he’s better than the drow and the devils were, but they’re not pleased about the water inflow over the last twenty-five years. It’s more lack of power than genuine goodwill that keeps them willing to trade with the Merchant Prince, but the city does give a fair price for the drugs they produce, both medical and recreational.
