A correction: Apparently the gigantic tree I had in mind was an "umbrella thorn" (http://www.krugerpark.co.za/africa_umbrella_thorn.html) rather than a "banyan tree"! But having examined both, I think we could have gargantuan versions of each

Names for Coren:

Echinacea – Pricklewort, Royalspine, Aguebane

"The first two names are derived from the spiky centre of the flower, which children think resembles a miniature prickleboar.  Its more common title of 'Aguebane' comes from its remarkable ability to mediate the symptoms of a typical ague - the running nose, the stuffed head, the sore throat... all respond well to an infusion of Aguebane with malisehoney...."


Umbrella Thorn – Bumbertree, Fishhook,  Thorncloud

"Colloquially nicknamed the 'Bumbertree' or the 'Fishhook (from its resemblance to a Brownie mushroom used as a rainshelter, or its double-spiked thorns), this dramatic tree is better known as the Thorncloud.  From a distance one sees a series of misty greyish flat-bottomed shapes, looking exactly like rain clouds hovering on the horizon.  But as one approaches, one sees the haze resolve into narrow leaves with the viciously-pronged thorns protruding beyond them, clustered in their cloudlike masses on elongated limbs.  The best one can say about this tree is that it provides a great deal of shade, its dripcircle being almost XXX peds in diameter..."

Did mention that I thought the Amorais should be very good friends with the Tarshiinites, especially since it would pose an interesting problem for the Gondolwenmith when they started dogfights in the waters....

The Amorai ;)

I think I might have a few ideas there -hmm... Let's see if I can get a SHORT, rough draft for the Gondolwenmith up by the end of the week. Then we can take things from there. I don't want to bury myself under a huge undertaking so the whole Gondolwain project will hopefully be conducted through sub-entries
