I admire how you've even considered hydrology in your legendary stories. 
  Still, maybe the gods can build a god-city out of god-fused sand 
bricks in the middle of the desert, but then someone has to build roads 
to get to all the men who come after the First Man.  Did Anakh reveal 
the secret of sand-working to the First City, or does he accept contract 
jobs for them, or do they traffic with rival magicians for that stuff?

And it's fun I can even ask these questions.
