I like tavern names that are drinking puns. Here's two I'm particularly proud of:

Heh, I was looking all over for a list like this when I first started GMing. Eventually I just hit up a random generator and tried to roll with that for awhile. Absolutely love "The Red Homununch"! Go to Comment

A good solid post. I constantly find myself in the need of moss and small plants.
Seriously! It's one of those write-ups which can be boring but very rewarding to add depth in a game. I want more. Go to Comment

Name - Hearthwile (Sternwile)
Grows - on tops of rocks
Description - Hearthwile is a shrub-like green-gold lichen that grows quickly and grows back even quicker. It is often crushed and added to drinks, as its sweet, strong flavor mixes easily with other flavors. It can also be dried and brewed into a watered-down tea that can aid sleep and minor colds.

Name - Olduvaol
Grows - on any non-organic surface (rocks, metal, etc‚ IE not wood, corpse, etc.)
Description - A light green-gray lichen, Olduvaol is known for the fascinating patterns it leaves behind on surfaces it has grown on. It can easily etch any surface with maze-like swirls and whorls, and dies before it truly begins eating away at its home. It is sometimes placed on items and accelerated, leaving behind complex patterns that no artisan could replicate. Go to Comment

Name - Otter's Ashes (Potter's Ashes)
Grows - on rocks
Description - Otter's Ashes is a light grey lichen that spreads fairly quickly, but grows far apart. It has no scent, but if ground while fresh, it gives of a slight odor of an old kiln. If dried and ground, it can be thrown behind one's path to rid the area of one's scent, deterring tracking by creatures with a keen sense of smell. As it has the ability to literally suck the smell (or sense of smell) out of the surrounding area, a pinch can also be sniffed to avoid nausea from areas with sickening smells, such as sewers and crypts.

Name - Patchworthy (Sparkmold, Coldflash-Mold)
Grows - on rocks, bases of trees
Description - Patchworthy is a crinkly dark green lichen that has been the source of endless amusement for children, and endless joy for entertainers. If it comes in contact with any sort of heat, from fire to the touch of a body, it spontaneously combusts into showers of white sparks, with a loud crackling and spritzing sound. The sparks actually feel cold, and have no potential of starting a fire. From small pranks, such as popping a handful into one's mouth and watching everyone's jaw drop, to massive firework applications, Patchworthy is enjoyed by people of all ages. Go to Comment

Name - Duggerpaw Moss (Glow-wind moss, Windwaning Moss)
Grows - Around trunks of trees, on low rocks, in wet areas
Description - Duggerpaw moss is a thick, tall green moss with numerous spore-stalks sprouting from its leaflets. At night, it gives of a soft but fairly bright blue glow, according to the wind. High wind causes the moss to glow brightly, while a low breeze might cause it to waver dimly. Seeing an area filled with duggerpaw moss is a magical sight, as the whole swamp seems to glow, pulsing with light and growing dim all around as the wind falters. Duggerpaw retains its glowing properties for several weeks after it is picked, and is often wrapped in bunches around sticks to make torches that need only be waved to give off light. Go to Comment

Name - Sabyr's Phantom-Moss (Sabyr's Fenmoss)
Grows - in bunches on tree limbs
Description - Dark grey and wispy, Sabyr's Phantom-Moss is named after the way it seems to disappear at night, blending into the shadows. It is quite unnerving to feel invisible fingers brushing over one's face as one walks through the swamp, even if one knows the source is but a hanging plant. Go to Comment

Name - Night-Star Moss (Blackmoss)
Grows - in large clumps on trees
Description - Night-Star Moss is an amazing plant, said to be a survivor from the age of wonders, and breathtaking to behold. Only visible during clear night skies, Night-Star Moss appears as a fine night-black moss, with points of starlight woven into its feathery leaflets. Observing it reveals that the stars appear to move within the depths of the blackness it is made of, and people who have stared into its stars for too long have sometimes been lost to its chasms, forever wandering only half-aware of their surroundings. If picked, it immediately loses its effect and crumbles into the night with small bursts of starlight. During the day, it cannot be found, and those who have tried to observe it at dawn have fallen asleep each time, waking to find it gone. It is said that this plant is a child of the lord of night himself. Go to Comment

Name - Gorgon-Moss (Guard-Moss)
Grows - around stones, on high ground, on hills
Description - Gorgon-moss is a short, grey-green moss with white tips and thick, stiff leaflets, often found growing among dark, broken stones, for reason none has been able to find of yet. If crushed and rubbed in an afflicted area, Gorgon-Moss can relieve old aches, cramps and stiffness after a period of sleep. It is said that Gorgon-Moss could once turn those frozen by the eye of a gorgon to flesh again, but that its powers were lost in the great draining. Go to Comment

Name - Blueblossom-Carpet (Blueblossom)
Grows - in dry fields or forests, in moderate to direct sunlight
Description - Blueblossom-Carpet, although rare to the swamps, is quite common in fields and forests. Short and light green, the plant is relatively unassuming until bloom, when it sprouts vibrant blue flowers with white centers, covering the whole ground in a wash of color and sweet fragrance. Blueblossom is often used as a symbol of truth and hope in fables, and its flowers are often crushed to make a stunning blue dye. It can also be used as a perfume, although it takes many flowers for enough fragrance. Go to Comment

Name - Wendeleaf (Demonsbane)
Grows - around trees, in shade
Description - Wendeleaf is a short, dark green plant with round shiny leaves that grow close to the ground. It gives off a strong, spicy odor if crushed, and is said to ward off evil spirits. It is often dried and burned in holy places as incense, and some folk leave bowls of dried Wendeleaf as a potpourri and as a ward against evil. Go to Comment
Spark's comment on 2005-12-09 12:09 PM
Name - Cauldronleaf (Roundleaf)
Grows - on dry ground
Description - Cauldron leaf can easily be mistaken for Wendeleaf, as it has the same round, shiny dark green leaves - however, Cauldornleaf is larger and grows taller, and has black tips on the ends of its leaves. Cauldronleaf, if eaten raw is very effective at weakening and curing fevers. It has a bitter taste, but eating a spoonful a day can greatly reduce the effects of a fever, and quell it in a matter of days. Go to Comment

Name - Snap's Tears (Snapeye)
Grows - around rocks, in mildly wet areas
Description - Snap's tears are small, bright green plants with round, bright yellow flowers. They are edible, but tasteless, and are often used as a garnish for meats and salads. They are often found growing in clumps of fours and fives. Go to Comment

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
