Description: The Puliquay is a rare herb found mostly on the content of Aeruillin. Blossoming in the plain of the dead this ancestral flower is well sought after. It has a brown stem and stays near the ground. The bloom from this desert flower is dull and easily mistaken for a Kila weed. The dull orange color blends into the desert sand. It grows well in sweltering places or high temp and low moisture.

Territory: Mostly found on the continent of Aeruillin but can be found where the deserts conquer. As was said very scarce and can't be detected very well unless you have stumbled across them.

Usage: When boiled with the water from the Sea of Tardulan it produces a potent poison used for suffocating the enemy. It bubbles out of the container which has been mixed and floats with the wind destroying multicellular organisms. The water has a mysterious effect making the weed release a poisonous gas. The gas contains parasites that are quite microscopic. They were present on the surface of the bloom but not as potent as they were in their gaseous stage. They are then lighter than air and begin to imbed themselves into there host eating away it's flesh or bark etc. once they come in contact.  So one who uses this herb must experiment with extreme caution not to let the gas flow in there direction. (The brownies were able to do this because the containers they used were usually much taller than them and the parasites usually floated upward. They were immune to the parasites in solid form.)

Myth/Lore/Origin: Though no one knows where it came from the brownies were the first to harness it for their way of life. Other species tried to add this to their arsenal but could not harness it because the bloom itself was to fragile. The Oils from the Brownies pores on their fingers seemed to nullify the tiny parasites that lived on the Blooms surface. Other races became severely sick when they touched the bloom. Brownies being experts in herbs they manipulated the herb to their advantage to spread the poison towards enemy troops. Only for protection, never to destroy the world that the Life Tree presented them in. It was said that the continent of Aeruillin was once a paradise but an Ogre that tried to produce the poison produced enormous amounts, took a deadly wif and died. At this disastrous turn of events the poison spread throughout the continent destroying everything. But that is only legend told to brownies when they are children. But the herb is very real. And it's properties as well.



Constructive criticism please :)      
I look forward to it.

Looks ok to me except the part about wind magic. It is the elves that are in touch with wind magic, not Brownies.

Also Brownies (except for Milken) don't believe in Ava. They believe in the spirits of rocks, trees, and streams. In Aeruillin they would take a more agnostic or atheistic approach.

Maybe also describe its effects more precisely?

:)
Good to see you writing, Mepui/uni

Like it, but I would say it doesn't differ from weed. What is weed in the desert? Something people don't need? I think you can't do such a distinction.

Some people say I'm naughty.I'm not. I have the heart of a young girl.  - In a jar, on my desk.

OK I switched some things around.

First I did away with Avà in place of the Life Tree...

Then I changed he Wind magic part.

I took into consideration of what Talia said so I said it resembles a particular weed. I guess that means I have to make another Herbanium thing about that too.

Grrrrrr.....  >:

Just playing :)  I thanks for your comments. Now I have to work on the other thing Greybark was saying about.

Hmmmm....

Tell of anything else you guys can help me out with!

:eek  I know!

"The gas contains parasites that are quite microscopic. They are lighter than air and begin to inbed themselves into there host eating away it's flesh or bark etc. once they come in contact."

Excellent! I love the description!

Hmmm......maybe have the other races not be able to use it as much because of the dangers of storing and using it? Just thinking, the elves are still much more in touch with nature than Brownies....unless the elves had no intrest in such a life-destroying thing? Rambling a bit, but this is the only part that I think still needs to be refined.....I will be including a link to your entry in the upcoming Memnoor Tribe entry.... I like it.....it definitely fits the Memnoor....

Thanks Greybark for the compliment! It's greatly appreciated.

On another note. I took consideration about the brownies only being able to use it and added to that. I think it should work now. Please let me know!

Another thing....

What in Sorren's Green Pasteurs are the Memnoor?

Natural resistance....interesting......

Looks good to me!

Anyone else have comments?

BTW: Memnoor is the new name for the Brownie Tribe that lives just within the Etherial Void.....it just means Void city (shortened from Ro-memnoor, Brownies of the Void city) in Browniin (Memnoor Browniin, of course)

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
