This is a crazily awesome idea, and I'd be glad to have a chance to use it at some point. My main reason for commenting, however, is to point out that Watership Down is by Richard Adams, not Douglas Adams. Let me know when it's fixed, and I'll get rid of my nitpicking comment :). Go to Comment
In the dry steppelands, one of their most valuable exports is the dried sap of the Larthorn tree. These ugly plants are covered with vicious thorns, but the locals harvest the golden droplets that ooze from their bark each Autumn. This sap, once dried, is valued for its medicinal properties and as a spice. Since little gold or silver is found in the hinterland, the dried droplets of sap are often used as currency by the locals.
