The Urban Tree

APPEARANCE: A large thick stumped bark tree. Large green leaves which are round at the base and have five points on the outside.

After they reach a certain undefined height they begin to grow in breadth rather than height. Sometimes grown in a restricted space the roots of the Urban tree, grow above the ground. Creating an elaborate maze or spooky hollows throughout the woods. Quite often hundreds of years old.

The tree produces a fruit similar to an apple, called the Del’injera (Magic Sun). Sweet tasting and creamy red in colour. The fruit is surrounded by a tough cocoon, which protects the fruit inside from the long fall to the ground. In-between the cocoon and the fruit is a honey like liquid.

TERRITORY: Grows in Woody areas. The largest one known is situated inside the Auturian Forest. It was made into the Ria (The largest building in the forest which houses the Sovereign of the Tethinrhim Tribe.)

USAGES: When chopped up into smaller pieces for putting in a fire, they are very economical. For a small amount of wood the fire can burn for hours. In spite of this you would need to start the fire with something that produces a great flame, as it is difficult to get the wood burning, but not impossible

The leaves are large and soft to touch, have a round edge where they connect to the tree and five star points. Often used for one-use washcloths, wrapping around wounds as a temporary bandage or underneath the bandage itself. It is said to have a soothing effect on bruised or tender skin of any race. Also useful for temporary headache and muscular pains when made into a tea.

The sap in the middle of the cocoon and the apple can be used to poor over an open wound to help with the healing process. Not an antiseptic however aids with the healing.

The wood is relatively moderate when it comes to the handling; difficult to master however produces some fantastic wood works. Weather resistant. The Urban tree is often used by elves for making houses in the trees. By either carving into the trunk of the tree, or building adding on to the trunk. Often both carving inside and adding on are done. Growing in close proximity to each other their roots system is very complex, each tree intertwining with the neighbouring tree.

MYTH/LORE: It is often said that the Urban Tree was first created when the Tethinrhim Tribe first came to the Auturian Woods by an Elf Named Na’Pheran (She’Tree)

Realising that it wouldn’t be viable for her fellow tribe members to live on the ground with safety, she focused on the powers of the Earth and created a forest of large living house trees.

FIXED IT UP! :)

That better Art?

I've tried to draw a picture, but it just turns out like a big brown mess with green blobs, any one feel like creating an image for the tree with some houses in them? Maybe even push my luck for the Ria?? (main building where the S'Er (King or Queen of the Tribe)

Quite fine, Uragal! Definitely something to put up on the site.

One note, though: We've elaborated certain systems by now how Bestiary and Herbarium entries should look like - in which sections such entries need to be devided. Take a look e.g. at Thuja's Nightshimmer Vine. You'll find sections here like: Appearance, Territory, Special Abilities, Usages, Myth/Lore. If you could edit your entry this way that everything described is on its proper place, that would be fine:)

OK I’ll have a look at the format and then edit mine.

Just for future reference, do I leave it here for you to copy and paste or is there another way?

Yeah, I'll copy and paste it, Uragel! Just edit it (divide it into the sections) so that we have a final version, then I guess it will be up already next update!

Hello everyone!

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
