During a visit to the region’s largest alpaca farm, we uncovered a lab designed to distill the saliva of the animals to create a tincture used for a new form of transportation particularly suited to warfare. It allows those who take it to disappear from Rilao and reappear anywhere in the world for several minutes, enabling these travelers to glean information useful in battles with outsiders.
(Shown here: the possessions of the only captured Rilaoan potion-traveller, who was intercepted outside of Seoul, Korea in late 2014. Their capture was attributed to only having the outdated map shown here, which was apparently cut out of a 1969 issue of National Geographic.)
