Resources of an area that are used by the characters in that setting, ones that are not imported or exported, is the focus of this section. There might be a particular food that is only grown here, and the law prohibits sending it outside of the area. Or it might be something simpler, like Aunt Jackie’s secret cookie recipe. There might be a cave to come explore for an educational resource not found elsewhere in the world. Or perhaps the setting has a special source of magical power that can only be called upon here.
