foul-smelling plant is found growing on the rocky coasts of
R'unor where it appears to thrive in soil not
suited to many other plants. The Bethelatron gets around the problems of poor
soil by the expedient of trapping and consuming flesh in the large bowl-shaped
structure in its centre, called the pod. Its most frequent meals are carrion
birds as well as other scavengers drawn to the smell. The nectar which is
produced only during the flowering of this plant gives off a delightful
fragrance; it is collected and formed into various expensive and tasty drinks.
The flower of this plant is called the Bethelbloom.
"Blanket of Shar" is an invasive, fast-growing, flowering vine that is native to
the jungles of Shar. This vine can blanket large areas of trees and ground
covering them in a thick layer of tough vines and voluminous numbers of
variegated green leaves. In tropical climates, the vine flowers almost
continuously, but in colder climes, it flowers only in the spring and summer.
The flowers are very tiny, but grow in great ball-shaped bunches which give the
impression of a larger light pink flower. In the tropics the vines grow so
thickly massed together that they merge, forming a larger vine or even a wide
The ability of this vine to grow together to make bigger vines is limited to the
tropics, because of the high humidity, and fast growth. It happens very seldom
in any other climates. This unique characteristic makes this vine a basic
building material of the Viaquis tribe. Gardeners in other regions often use it
to cover a trellis, or garden shelter, to create a private, shady, getaway. It
is also used to cover external walls of some buildings for decoration.
Dashefruit Creeper is an intriguing plant with its delicious fruit, interesting
growth patterns and flammable pit. It is found growing deep within any fertile,
humid and tropical forest or jungle of Aeruillin. Locals use the fruit sparingly
since, though useful, it is difficult to find and harvest as well as growing in
presumably limited supply.
Heart, Bleeding Heart or Burning Heart (Styrásh:
cár'réóll eferí, cár'réóll eferí,
meaning Burning Heart, or cár'réóll eaí,
meaning Protecting Heart) is a beautiful climber. It has dark green heart shaped
leaves with a delicate red rim which are topped by ornamental yellow flowers.
But it is one of the biggest nuisance and a fairly dangerous plant to an
plant, the Flaming Star vine grows mainly in warm regions near coastal
areas. The vine named for its vividly coloured and star-like flowers
is very popular in the poorer regions of Varcopas, but can be found growing wild in
most places where the weather suits it. A completely edible plant, the
flowers are used to make a desert sauce known for its aphrodisiac properties and
its slightly spicy leaves are popular seasoning for fish. The
tear-inducing spicy tangled knots of the vine are used to produce Flaming Knots,
a popular candy confection among children across the world. The plant also produces a
strangely shaped fruit called the "Meldastar". The flower and leaves of the
vine are also produce a rich vibrant red dye, which is incredibly
expensive due to the large number of flowers it takes to make the
Vine (also referred to as "Ankriss’ Necklace") is a beautiful flowering vine
that is found in the Jungles of Shar. It is famous for turning trees into
explosions of colour, by wrapping itself around the trunk so many times. They
are also well known outside of the forests, as little
Krean girls use their remarkable
flowers to make simple pieces of jewellery, which are sold on by many traders
passing through the forests.
low-growing rose, resembling a creeping vine more than the more common
bush-shape of wild roses, is a popular plant from the
Moredein Kaerath on Nybelmar where it
thrives on the relatively alchalic soil. Its highly fragrant flowers are a
valuable resource for the making of various perfumes, and have most certainly
been a key reason for its rapid spread as a potted plant.
Kragghi is a ground-hugging, cold-tolerant vine which contains a spicy red sap
used as a flavouring by various races in
Northern Sarvonia, mostly the
Kuglimz and various
orc tribes, though its popularity is growing.
The Kragghi Vine is also alternately called Krr’ah’ghi (Orcen), Krrahghi
(Kuglimz’seitre), Krahgi (ThergerimTaal),
Kraggy (Peasant Tharian).
VINE, THE ("CLOUDBLOOM")
Le’matice flowering vine, also called "Climbing Beauty" or "Cloudbloom", blooms
almost exclusively in the Varcopas, the
Cloudforest, and the Uderza Heights area. The
flowering vine also produces a small round fruit that when pressed produces one
of the finest oils sold in Santharia. The
oil produced from its fruit and its variety causes the Le’matice flowering vine
to be a very valuable plant indeed.
Vine is a single broad-leafed climbing vine
found throughout the whole world of
Caelereth. It is
called "Nimbus Flower"
or "Mooncharm" when referred
by its flowers.
"Roori" by the Darkling Brownies (and "Rooa" by older generation) or
"SthoStukarolon" by the Trumarim dwarves, this tough, stringy weed is only found
deep underground in the oil-filled lakes underneath the Western Bay in northern
Nybelmar. It seems to have developed a way
to feed on the dark, thick oil, and requires neither sunlight nor water for its
survival. Although most races and animals would dismiss it as an inedible weed,
it is one of the staple resources of the Darkling Brownies, a race who have only
recently been discovered living in this inhospitable environment. The vine
attaches itself to the walls of caves and dips fine, dangling roots into the
sludge-like liquid, presumably getting some kind of nutrients from it.
Vines, also known as Palm Vines in areas where bombox
palm trees are to be found, are perhaps one of the more noticeable vines of
the Nybelmarian jungles, are well known
throughout the forested areas of the continent. Valued for edibility,
decorativeness, and its use as a resource for rope-makers, Strangling Vines are,
have been for a long time, and will continue to be, an important part of the
flora of Caelereth.
Sweetsip Vine or Asén'bejón in
Styrásh (lit. "Sweet Thrive") is native to
Nybelmar, but has made its way to Sarvonia.
The Asén'bejón is a most hardy plant and has a tendency to multiply with great
ease. Its cone like blossoms release a pleasantly sweet smell and can be used in
the finest sweet pies, butters, breads, and cakes. Sweetsip also has many other
common names such as: Love o' Malise, Sunbengian, and Nectarene.
Specially crafted through
magic and science
the Áró'bejón Vine (Styrásh for
"First Evergreen Wine") are what elven wine is made from.
While there are many factors which effect the taste of the wine produced, this
is a general overview of the Áró'bejón Vine.
