2. Quasi-Souls believe themselves to be inferior to other forms of life, those that are not in the "limbo". They prefer to stay hidden with others of their kind, but that doesn't mean that the monastery priests will turn someone away in their time of need, as long as they who they help does not mind their presence. Nor will the cult acolytes just stand by when there is a perfect opportunity to slit the throats and chop the heads off their "superiors".

Dustwood is technically not a wood from a specific tree. It is an created fuel for fires.
Starting with the sawdust from a sawmill, adding a mixture of wax or pitch, and a few other things, the mixture is pounded or pressed toghether tightly. It is normally smashed into a round container, so when it is slipped out, it looks like a small perfectly round "log". (actually a lathed log, but you get the idea). It can either be used as a log or slices of a log can be used for a fire.
