THE MISCELLANEOUS/OTHER PLANTS OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW

There are certain kinds of plants, which are difficult to categorize in a specific category and represent something unique and out of the norm. It includes plants used for dye, toiletries, cosmetics, or other specific uses, which do not fit neatly into any other categories. Or you might say the proper category for them hasn't been created yet. Be it as it may, this page collects all these cases.

Overview. The following miscellaneous/other plants have been recorded so far in the Compendium:

ALTH'TIERT, THE ("YELLOW PLANT")
The Alth’tiert is a large plant commonly found around the vents of volcanoes in the Celeste Mountains. The name Alth’tiert, Kuglimz'seitre for "Yellow Plant," derives from the colour of the leaves and the dye they produce. The Alth’tiert is notable for its reproductive cycle. This plant does not fertilize through insects like the malise that carry pollen from plant to plant; instead, the mature Alth'tiert bursts open when a nearby vent becomes too hot, releasing the pollen into the air to float to other plants. It is used for trade and dye by the Fird’gormz, a human Kuglimz tribe residing in the mountains in Northern Sarvonia. Return to the top
 

The Bone Tree

BONE TREE APPARITION, THE
It is hard to decide which of the Venlaken Enclave's apparitions in Nybelmar are more mysterious or intriguing, but the Bone Trees are definitely among the most fascinating phenomenons. Categorized as apparitions, their manifestation reminds more of some sort of plant life rather than undead abominations or other strange malevolent ghostly creatures. They are encountered more in the northern regions of the Enclave but it is believed that they actually are common throughout the entire Enclave - as the thick vegetation of the southern marshes is making them hard to observe. These trees usually appear suddenly over night and disappear just as sudden after some time. Their most common form is that of a tree made entirely out of human bones. They were also seen as normal trees that instead of branches have human hands and also as huge hands coming out of the ground, sometimes even feet, or just fingers. All these body parts seem to be alive somehow, as they will bleed if chopped down. It is not known whether these "Bone Trees" are malicious or not and generally the Anpagan mages and even the Daedhirians seem to be clueless about their origins or purpose. Return to the top
 

The Hobbitweed

HOBBITWEED, THE ("PIPEWEED", "SMOKEWEED")
Hobbitweed (also known as "Pipeweed" or "Smokeweed") is almost exclusively grown by halflings in the world of Caelereth although, as the convention of smoking Hobbitweed grows among the other races, some human farmers have started cultivating small crops in recent decades.

LAMPSTALK, THE
The Lampstalk is a plant that is naturally luminescent. It grows on a long stalk, and has one flower whose pollen glows brightly at night after sunny days. It is used as a lamp, or as a substitute torch: pull out your knife and cut at the bottom of the plant, and you have light!

The Paelmerin ("Cloudyhead", "Halobloom")

PAELMERIN, THE ("CLOUDYHEAD", "HALOBLOOM")
The Paelmerin plant is especially known for its strange appearance and the fact that it is a strong reagent for wind spells. The center of its flower is the part where its cár'áll is said to be the most concentrated, and it is used in Illusion spells as well as ingested by wind mages before casting magic as a focusing aid and a way of clearing the mind. The name of this plant is most likely a debased form of the Styrásh paél'merín (
Paél'Merín, lit. "Mist Flower"), while humans often call it as well "Cloudyhead", and occasionally "Halobloom".

The Pendrowe

PENDROWE PLANT BEING, THE

The Pendrowe types most encountered and documented have an appearance of a tree, although it is known that Pendrowe can appear as most any kind of plant type. Pendrowe is often used as the plural and singular form when referring to the plant. Return to the top
