    It's a nerd drawing of the MHI compund from Correia's books. Milo's Workshop and the road to the Orc Village ought to be giveaways.

    Don't forget the magical MacGuffin ward of insta-kill that is buried in the compound.

    If there's a lazy trope, it's in there.

    That's the problem with every hyper arid compound location. Super cheap but nothing you can do without 30k worth of groundwater sourced irrigation equipment or importing grain for cattle that may as well be eating out of feedbags on mars for all the "countryside" matters.

    Any place like this is absolutely haram, sorry need to see green fields and trees not yucca and scrub oak.

    It is on a well, so I would absolutely fill the courtyard with olives, figs, pomegranates, grapes, etc. Can grow vegetables year round in a very minimal hoop-house, which also saves water. Have some goats free-ranging outside (there is an open range law there, you don't have to fence in livestock). Bees and free-flying pigeons as well. Don't forget Toyota pickup and AK!

    NM building code allows for adobe, rammed earth, straw bale construction, etc. They allow builders materials like railroad ties, camper shells, and suck rods scavenged from old gas wells. In NM you can build a citadel for next to nothing. You can repurpose pretty much anything you want. Dude is probably selling at cost. Demming is way too close to the border.

    I have a pair of brothers I used to work with who both live out on 54 between Rio Vista and Tucumcari. One lives in an old route 66 Magnolia Oil gas station and the other lives in an abandoned indian school that looks, feels, and smells like Alhambra if in miniature. Both these niggas roll into wal mart with colts and arkansas toothpicks on the hip and nobody bats an eye. In a lot of ways NM is the end of America.

    It might be best for me to stay away from the border. I have an irrational urge/craving to go into Mexico. I used to go down pretty often when I lived in AZ, in some cases to places that were not a good idea at all.
