1  Santharian World Development / The Santharian Bestiary / Re: but... on: 15 June 2002, 13:52:00
If I may say so, the appereance is a bit wierd. You could lose the tentacles, add human arms, and maybe get rid of the huge lump on the head, or make it smaller. That would tone down the wierdness of the appereance.

Just a little advice. :

I'm sorry, I can't get online on weekends to much. I didn't know you need that. Here goes:

Reproduction:

The Fragrans tree reproducts in the normal way of trees.
During the months of  Fallen Leaf and Passing Clouds, they shed their nuts, which ether grow from that spot, or are carried off by birds, who later find they are too hard to crack.

Hey! I'm back, and I've finished my tree! Hope you guys like. I did alittle bit of reserch on places.

                                                           Fragran's Tree

Description:

A slim tree averaging 8 peds in height, with reddish brown bark, and black leaves with small purple spots. Will produce tiny purple flowers in the spring (usually during the months of Awakening Earth, Changing Winds and Singing Bird), which become hard, tiny inedible nuts in summer and fall (from Rising Sun through Burning Heavens, Sleeping Dreameress and Fallen Leaf, to Passing Clouds.) The bark is rough, as if the tree were covered with small sharp grains, and will catch at anything that brushes against it.

Territory:

Found throughout Santharia, these trees can grow in most locations, even on cliff-faces. However, Optimal conditions for the tree are rich soil, good water, and a nice, sunny, area. They are also found mainly around healer huts.

Uses:

Bark can be grated and used as an anti-nausea tea. It has a earthy, pleasant taste and gives a feeling of extra energy. The spice will often be added to drinks to give them 'kick' and flavour. Fragran's pice can also be mixed with butter and honey to make "Bark-Butter", a delicious and healthy spread for fresh bread.

Excerpt from "Gough's book of spices."

"…Spice Preparations:

To make Fragran's spice, one must find the tree, and then peel the bark off. The best time to do this is the month Singing Bird, when the bark slips easy, although this can be done any time the leaves are on the tree. After you have the bark, most people smoke it, to add more flavor, although it has also been steamed. After this is done, you take a grater, and finely grate the bark till you have very fine dust. Then you can put it into a leather pouch and it is ready for use. There is a large population of the fragrans tree around Voldar, near the Thaelon forest, (the area in which it is said to have first started) and therefore they happen to be the worlds largest prouducer of Fragran's spice…"

Myth:
The most common myth centered around these trees, is that of the healer Fragran, who came from Voldar, which is as follows:

"Fragran, a notable healer from Voldar, was returning there for a family reunion. He was getting tired, as he had traveled from Thyslan, where he now lived, through the Aurora Fields, up through Cemphiria, and through the forest to Voldar. He had stopped at a tavern in Cemphiria, where he bought a drink and mentioned he had been up all day, traveling. That was the last anyone saw him alive. It is widely believed that he stopped to rest on a tree. What he didn't realize was that its bark was so rough; it caught anything that touched it, even his skin. When he woke up, he found that he could not move. He was starving, and, as no one expected him for many days, he soon was on the verge of death. It's believed that, right before he died, he some how spread his spirit into the tree, not only giving it healing properties, but also making the bark less rough, so as it still caught anything that touched it, but that, with enough force, the item could be peeled off.
When he had not arrived for the reunion, his family was worried. The whole town searched the forest, and soon found the remains of Fragran, which was just the tunic he was wearing, and the leather satchel that he carried his healing potions in. they looked at the tree, and immediately noticed the black leaves and purple blossoms, which were his favorite colors, and had guessed what you've just read. Right then and there it was called 'Fragran's tree,' and later spelled 'Fragrans tree.' The people of Voldar soon made sure that any tree that kept hold of a test cloth, no matter what strength applied, was chopped down, though they didn't dare go too deep into the woods, and so there may still be old specimens of the old tree there."

Talia, These look a lot like... Alpacas. :D  Not lamas, but alpacas.  My brother has 2 of those things in our back yard. Awfuly stupid, and very stubbern. Not like your Aj'Nuvic's at all. But they look a lot like them still. If you gave them a hump, it'd look less like an Alpaca.

Thanks for the suggestions. I like your additions, and I'm going to add them soon. Is it okay if I just copy and paste your version? :p  I'm thinking of the story of the tree, But it might take a few days.

And yes, Nutmeg is used to quell nusea, And I converted it's hight into peds. So there's a little bit of the real tree in there. In fact, if you look up the scientific name, you'll see where I got mine.

I'm a God fearing man and I will start praying for him imeditly. I hope he does get well soon. You could never tell by his writing that he was sick, or at least I couldn't, and I wish him the best of luck.

May God speed him health.

I'm new to this and I don't even have a title at the RPG site. (That's because You guys are still deciding whither or not Half-Halflings can exist.) By the way, I'm the one who created them and I'd like to re-name them. How about we call them (If you decided to let them in.) "Humlings". Pronounced "Hue-m-lings".

I'd like to get started on a history for them, and maybe even become the resident expert on them.
I'm not a really good writer.(But my mom and dad say I have potential. But all parents say that. :lol  ) But I'll try my best to overcome my mistakes and start as soon as I can.

Or as some might say.... "I'd like to be part of The Santharian Dream."

P.S. How do you pronounce "Santharian"?
