Well, we have seen them before, but you just can't have a high-fantasy forest without a plant that drags you towards it to eat you. (Psst, add some detail on its actual feeding methods and equipment... it will be necessary when the heroes will have to fight it.)
It is a decent implementation of the cliche, with nice plot hook for use. Go to Comment
A well-executed rendition of the fantasy/pulp adventure staple. They also come in handy when your science-fiction adventurers are marooned on a hostile planet: A larger version of the creature could entangle entire spacecraft... Go to Comment
Swords form a bond to their wielder. A symbol on the grip that is absorbed through the user's hand and appears on the back of the hand. Maybe only visible to them or others that have the abilities. Could give unique powers depending on when it happened and what they did to get it. It takes a specially made sword that only few can receive and made by a certain race. Then they must do something really heroic to unleash the swords power. Once unleashed it is theirs till they die then the sword goes dormant again till another accomplishes another feat.
