Sarvonia. Surprisingly hearty against cold,
Dreamer’s Breath will grow anywhere where there is
sunlight, good weather, and moist, well
drained earth. Dreamer’s Breath is known best

A fascinating plant which has a euphemistic name and a number of uses, some more
commonly known than others. Shaped like a hollow cup, in a pale greenish yellow
colour, the Herb’oThreshold is actually carnivorous; small insects, ants, and
flies which are attracted to the moist interior become trapped inside by the
paralysing mists arising from the plant’s flesh.
Some enterprising race (probably the
Brownies) discovered that these mists act as an
anesthetic on minor wounds, numbing the surrounding area and relieving the pain
for a short time. On small animals the fresh plant can even be used to render
them unconscious for a short time - a few prized cats and dogs belonging to
noble families have been successfully treated by well-paid if contemptuous
physicians while under the influence of the Herb’oThreshold’s paralytic odours.
The cats and dogs, that is, not the physicians. The plant is severed at the
base, cut vertically open to form a flat slab of moist fiber, washed carefully,
and then placed directly upon the wound and held for several heartbeats.

curving stems resemble a vine. The flower is an elongated cup or horn shape,
which expands as it blooms and changes colour. It is notable for two qualities:

which it then repeats daily until its three-month season is over, and second,

"Phoenix Flower", "Timelily" or "Firecup").
plant, with its bright Cyhalloi
snow petals tipped with a faint
waterberry blue colouring,
is a beautiful sight. It also has many other uses besides looking pretty. Almost
every part of the Mallowdrop plant has a medicinal use, and can even be made
into a healthy candy for children called a "Mallowdrop". This has led to the
Santharian region of Enthronia becoming
populated with many large plantations growing the plant. This plant can survive
anywhere that is sunny and moist during the
spring and summer. The roots can survive a light winter, and the next spring and
summer the plant will grow back even larger. In undisturbed areas, they have
even grown to the height of an average human.

Trinity Herb is the sacred herb of Eyasha,
Goddess of Peace, and therefore widely
valued by many of her followers. It hosts a profusion of healing properties, and
is recognized as a symbol of peace and welcome all across
Sarvonia. Its intolerance for too much
sunlight has made it elusive anywhere but in
the shadiest forests. Elves and
Brownies were the first to discover and use
it, but its popularity is spreading as it is introduced in new environments. It
is found growing in large clumps, due to the unusual method by which it

often used in dyes, whilst the leaves are most commonly used in the
