A very fun idea, not realistic, but perfect for a fantasy ecology. Eco-friendly elves might have created these trees as slow but green form of mining.

These are probably the only trees stereotypical Dwarves are fond of. Go to Comment
Nice background article, though the mankind-as-a-plague meme is a little overdone. However, if your campaign is build on this theme, with non-humans (or just different humans) fighting against an expansionist Empire of Man, "Remember the Mareb!" Would be a valid battlecry. Go to Comment

A certain culture believes that evil can live beyond the grave. They also believe that the destruction of the dead body can keep that one from coming back. Destroying the newly deceased body can destroy the soul if done properly. They first burn the body for 24 hours, smash the remains as well as possible, then burn the what is left for another 24 hours.
