Title: replacement Bethelatron entry
Post by: Xenos Ravenbeack on 17 June 2001, 12:27:00
BETHELATRON, the. R'unorian carnivorous vines.

These unique vines found only on the islands of R'unor have addapted a unique solution to the problem's of growing on the bare stone cliff faces found along shorelines and the scattered mountains of R'unor, they feed not only upon nutrients found naturaly in soil but suplement this by feeding on animal life found on the islands.

To accomplish this the vines grow small hairlike receptors along there legnth used to detect vibrations. if direct contact is maid with the plants receptors the vine will wrap around its prey with enogh force to crush the bones and internal organs of most animals. after the prey is secrured the vine will retract itself towerds the larg centrial flower growing at its base, when not in its reproductive paze the flower serves as a container for a vile mixture of natural plant venomes and acids and enzyms that, once the prey is emersed in, will disolve it to a liquid form that is exorbed by the plant.

During the reproductive phase, Occuing at regular intervils every 5 or ten years, the flower will undego a significant transformation. the Venomous mixture is drained into sacks located at its base and is replaced by a sweet, greenish colored liquid, high in both protine and carbohydrates. The vines are not sensitive at this time and will inor stimulouse. many birds as well as some larger animals gather to feed on the nectre, coveringthemselves in polin in the process. the Nectre is also considered a most desireable beverage by the human population and can sell for up to 3 gruldar a liter.

There's one sentence in this update, I can't figure out at all (obviously after a major attack of the misspelling devil): "The vines are not sensitive at this time and will inor stimulouse." Could you rephrase that, Xenos, and/or correct the wrong words??

the vines wont wrap around you and plunge you into the flower during the reproductive stage.

Is "inor stimulouse" proper English? My dictionary hasn't heard of these words...

It is really "ignore stimulus," or, using proper English, "ignore stimuli." Basically, they will not ignore their senses.
