Interesting, though with what current medicine can do, and can come close to doing, I would that once we advance to portable fusion reactors, regrowing the bottom half of people should be duck soup.

Nasty :)

And of course, the employers may want the adventurers at the trap at the same time as they army they intend to destroy, as someone willing to do such acts for money can never be trusted... Go to Comment

Death Nettle

A giant variety of common nettle, it has arrow-head shaped leaves, greyish varagated foliage and is covered in razor sharp, poisonous spines. The poison causes severe pain as well as violent muscle spasams which could cause a victim to fall, possibily into more nettle. Since large doses will disrupt breathing, falling into the patch is not a good outcome.

The toxin (which is a neurotoxin) biodegrades rapidly and will not keep well if harvested from the plant. Go to Comment

Rapacious Snapdragon

A brightly colored flower with tall spires similar to foxglove. The Rapacious version is both very much larger then normal snapdragons, and far more active. The spires are very tall - 12-14' in height, and the spires are studded by very large flowers, each about 1 foot across. The flowers appear in many brilliant colors, but hide a secret. They are equipped with fang-like thorns that will be used to bite anyone coming close to the plant. A victim will be subject to 2-4 bite attacks at a time but an individual plant can only attack one target at a time.

The plant is non-toxic, but the razor-sharp thorns can cause serious damage. Go to Comment

Miremoss

Miremoss appears as a fine green carpet and is otherwise not very different from other common mosses. What makes it dangerous is that it is very very tough, and exudes a very strong adhesive if damaged. This adhesive has a short setting period - usually 1-2 minutes after contact with the moss. When it sets, it does so suddenly and will hold fast most materials with a bond strength of magical intensity. Since the moss can occur in large patches, a victim could be stuck on the moss. Removing footware is a good solution if the victim is no longer on the moss or can fly, but if they are still on the moss, they will still have a serious problem.

The moss is quite tough and requires signficant hacking to cut through. Generally it will take longer to cut a significant patch then it will take for the adhesive to cure, possibly sticking weapons to the ground.

The adhesive is soluble in alcohol. It could be harvested, but since it begins curing on exposure to air that would be a difficult process. Go to Comment

Spitting Euphorbia

This bush is generally low key and resembles an oversized (4' height) common Euphorbia (Light green foliage, many small leaves, spherical overall shape). It is, however, somewhat intelligent and of a rather dour disposition. It has a caustic, milky sap that it can project up to 20'. This sap is very caustic and will inflict serious burns to organic materials. It is easily upset by sudden movement, sound, or light and will spurt sap until whatever disturbs it is gone, or it depletes its supply (usually 10-12 discharges per day).

If somehow subdued, it could be harvested for its sap that can then be used as-is as a weapon, or for use in alchemical work. Go to Comment

Singeweed

Singeweed appears very similar to Red Hot Pokers (http://www.freefoto.com/preview.jsp?id=12-65-53&k=Red+Hot+Poker") but differs in two major ways.

It is animated, capable of movement, and it is infused with elemental fire. When disturbed by intruders, it will envelop its flowers with flame and attempt to strike intruders in range. Strangely, the flames do not hurt the flower itself. Though capable of movement, they will not move further then 10' from their original rooting site.

The elemental energy is tied to the plant's life force, so if ripped up or otherwise killed, the energy will dissipate. Magic which works with elemental fire will apply to the plant. Go to Comment

Scorpion Grass

This grass appears as normal, overgrown grass - standing about 18" high with the occasional even taller spire covered with seeds. Some of these spires are different, containing a very strong, stiff core and ending in a barbed thorn. The thorn is quite toxic and sharp enough to easily pierce leather or find it's way through chain links. The spire is also capable of moving and will slash or stab at anything warm which comes within 18" of the plant. Go to Comment

Yep, if you can somehow harvest the 'epoxy' before it hardens (under water, perhaps) it would make excellent glue. It is, of course, biodegradable, but over a timeline too long to assist escape. Go to Comment

Yes, these critters are sort of Alice-in-wonderland inspired (plus my own garden, when I actually maintained it... another story).

They are part of the magically-reinforced garden of the Unseen fortress and intended as 'nature-themed' deathtraps.

If they escaped, then they could easily become the subject of an adventure. Go to Comment

Brawler Wood

Brawlerwood trees appear as large regular trees of varying species (usually oak, pine and crabapple) - all of which have large, thick branches. However, they are magically animated and are quite dangerous. They will attempt to pummel their victims with their thick, woody branches.
Only the larger branches will be used, so typically man-sized victims will be subject to no more then two such attacks at a time. The tree remains rooted to the ground, but can bend it's trunk at the ground level to allow for slightly longer reach.

The trees are not intelligent in the least - those who deploy them as defences know to simply keep out of the reach of the branches.

Optionally, one could grant sufficient intelligence to the tree to allow victims to come close before it attacks, or to use local debris as missile weapons (including fallen/chopped off limbs, former victims, etc). Those with available fruit (such as crabapple) could optionally use those as missile weapons if victims stay frustratingly out of reach. Not much damage, but a minor avenue for the tree to release it's aggression.

The process of animating such a tree employs components such as bull blood, strength or berserker type potions, and applications of plant-controlling spells. Alternately, minor evil spirits could be bound into the tree, which would yield the most intelligent and dangerous specimens.

An example of such a tree and it's behavior is typified by the Whomping Willow of Harry Potter fame. Go to Comment
