Frank Herbert’s Dune
On the desert planet of Arrakis, survival is pretty frickin’ hard. There isn’t much water anywhere, and only the toughest folks can make it in a world where dehydration and just starving to death are pretty big concerns. To make things more complex, the planet Is the home of a rare spice that is worth a BUTTLOAD of money to anyone who can get their hands on it. When you mix desperate situations and money grubbin’, there’s definitely some epicness to be had.
