Palm, a coconut plant, can be found everywhere on the seacoasts of the
tropical region. Its leaves, trunk scales, and its remarkable fruit are
used commonly among the people of tropics. Bombox Palm
is very common on the coasts of southern
Sarvonia (in Manthria, Sanguia and southern
Enthronia), southern Nybelmar, and the
southern islands of the Yamalquain archipelago. Some also
grow in northern Doranthakar and southern
Denilou - on the coasts of the Burning Sea.
The Carabery Tree or "The Shadow Giant" as it is also referred to due to
its enormous height is an immense tropical tree, which is known to grow
exclusively on wet swamp ground, primarily on
Nybelmarian soil like the Forest of
Ronoth. The legend tells that the trees grow from the cursed ground
brought into existence by the will of the dead and that they hold their
memories - the memories of those who once fell victim to the hazards of
the forest and never returned to the living. Some compare the Caraberies
to sentient tree beings of other continents like the
drasil or the
pendrowe, though they are in many ways unique and defy such a
categorization. Undoubtedly the legends don't lie on their eeriness - they
indeed have something dark around about them, which is why many travellers
prefer to forgo them.
and mysterious, Eyasha's Grace truly is a sight to behold. It is named after the
Goddess of Peace, due to the deep feelings
of tranquility, that seem to float in the very air around the tree. Surrounded
by the soothing, heavenly perfume of its beautiful white flowers, and heavily
shaded by the vast width of the crown, it is a wonderful place for one to rest
and gather one's thoughts, though few will get the opportunity to do so. The
tree is rare, with only two having ever been found, both of which exist on the
island of Aidan in the Scattersand
Reaching a height of more than twenty-five
peds, and up to ten peds
wide at the base of the trunk, Eyasha's Grace is a vast tree. But it's not the
size that strikes you, upon seeing it for the first time, as much as the
formation of the branches. Rather than growing outwards, like most trees, they
grow into a strange oval cage-like structure, as if they are forming around a
giant invisible egg, creating a unique and magnificent tree.
Tree is a popular addition to most Krean
gardens due to the sweet and succulent fruit that it bears. They are, however,
native to the rainforests on the peninsula of Shar and are an important part of
the ecosystems there.
Kitjuran, more commonly known as the "Wax-Heart Tree", is a tropical tree located
in the rainforests of south-western Nybelmar.
It is sought after because of the unique substance found in the centre of the
tree. This viscous, dense material (which is neither liquid nor solid), named
Kitjuran wax is hardened to make slow burning candles. It isn’t uncommon for
aromatic herbs to be added to the Kitjuran wax to make beautifully scented
candles, a luxury that is common among the wealthy
Liu’lian Tree is most known for its fruit, with its thick, thorn-covered outer
husk and its distinctive odour. For this reason, these fruits are also known as
"Reekthorns" or "Foul Melons", sometimes even "King of Fruits" because of its
rarity. The Liu’lian entices people with the edible yellow flesh which emits the
strong odour, and is regarded either as fragrant and addictive, or overpowering
and offensive. This tree is found only in the rainforests of south-western
Nybelmar, but the fruit is picked early
before ripening and imported over to Sarvonia
where it is quite popular.
the Viaquis people, this useful tropical palm with its nubbly trunk is quite
distinctive. The trunk is segmented into a number of toruses so that it
resembles a tall stack of plump rings or wheels, while the two-ped
long leaves which sprout directly from the top of the trunk are arranged in a
striking ‘spray’ or fountain. As its alternate name might suggest, the "Giving
Tree" has numerous uses, from water conduits
and hats to jewelry and food trenchers.
Tree, known to the elves as Injèr'seliáni (Styrásh
lit. "Sun-beckoner"), is a large, rare tree of the northern shores of
Nybelmar, only abundant deep within the
Phéd'lón woods northeast of Moredein Kaerath.
waterfruit tree, sometimes also known in the area of the Oka'Seri of the
Ráhaz-Dáth as the Tanglebough because of
the dense structure, is a tropical tree of medium height, native to
Nybelmar and various tropical regions of
Caelereth. It flourishes in wet places in
the shadow of higher trees, and has there established a mutually beneficial
relationship with various shimmerwing species. In
Styrásh the tree is also referred
to as "Béjon'már", lit. "Waterblossom".
distinctively shaped White Sister is a beautiful desert plant which deserves her
Nybelmarian title of "tree". Her
spear-straight trunk reaches almost five
peds in height, and her
slender, stiff blades appear to be reaching upwards to the drooping ‘head’ of
white blossoms that crowns the tree. Useful as a source of plant fibre and of
supplementary food, the White Sister prefers hot
sun and arid soil. In
Sarvonia she is found mostly in the upper
parts of the Ráhaz-Dáth Desert, but she
is also reported to flourish in the sandy deserts of Aeruillin and the Zhunite
areas of Nybelmar. Other names to refer to
the White Sister are: Li’accuy, "Speartree", "Ghost Dancer" or Yu-chi.
Windsong (HinvwenJual, Ahoo-ohoh-ahoo,
is a fascinating giant grass that resembles bamboo, or a giant horsetail
fern, but perforated naturally with multiple small holes. The segmented stalks
grow as high as several stories, with tiny fingerlet roots sprouting from each
segment, which extract nourishment seemingly from the air.
This plant is striking enough to have names in four languages. All the names
reflect the property which these growths have of catching wind and resonating it
through their stalks, like bamboo pipes. A slight breeze will produce only a
faint whispering, while a good stiff wind makes the Windsong grove echo like an
entire choir of tenor angels, crooning back and forth in eerie harmony.
Travellers enjoy the sound, but people tend not to live too close to large
Certain hermits have developed the art of pruning Windsong so that it is
"tuned", snipping the plant into
manageable heights and segments, filling some holes with pine resin and
encouraging new perforations to open appropriately. The resulting musical effect
is stunning, but luckily has not yet become popular in the cities.
