I was afraid that the Atlantic water was dissolving the salt deposits from beneath Cueball. (whew)

Whole towns sink into the ground when fresh water is used to extract salt.

Re: 1190: "Time"

It seems odd that a pre-industrial society living next to a very salty body of water would not be more well travelled. Salt is a very valuable trade resource.

Might be a source of conflict with the hill people.

I wonder if the angle would allow them to see the sea. Might be why there is a second tower closer to the edge of the plateau.
