Athodux
The dying plane.

Athodux is old, very old. Scholars believe Athodux is somehow older than any other material plane, and may even out date the elemental planes.

Resources
Athodux has excessively limited metal ores within it’s sands, salts, and crags. Iron, steel, brass, bronze, and even lead are rare metals on the desert plane, but Silver, Crystals, and Gems are all extremely common. Chiton and bone are the prefered hard-goods of athodux.
