Even stranger then "The Tempest"?I at times wish Shakespeare would still be alive during the opening decades of the European presence in Aururia and the time of the proxy wars. It might inspire him to write a play with elements inspired by the outlandish cultures of a distant continent that he heard of.

Any beast of burden would be really revolutionary.

Marauding nomads aren't exactly a thing that's existed in Aururia prior to this, so their reactions to the phenomenon should be interesting.
