1 Tree is 'Ironwood'
and is much more difficult to cut with an axe or other
tool.Assume a 25% chance of at least one 'cutter' being injured or having their axe
broken.
2 Tree has poisonous
sap - 10% chance of cutter being subjected to poison of varying intensity.
3 Widowmaker - Numerous
heavy branches are 'dead' and liable to drop if the tree is subjected to hard
shocks (i.e. Chopping). Damage varies from minor to lethal. Alternately, the
tree might have structurally flawed wood, which causes it to 'kick' randomly when
cut and not fall in the direction the lumberjack intends. 
4 Tree is an unusual
and/or aggressive Tree;

















































1 Devil's
Thorns
. A large oak tree with dangerous projectiles. It may be easier to
bypass it rather then cut it down.
2 Medusa Tree. A
very odd plant indeed, and should only be encountered once.
3 Broad Oak. A
large, menacing oak tree. Add to this encounter one of the Dangerous
Residents from below.
4 Qanquen Trees.
These trees form massive copses which create 'natural' walls. When
encountered, it will increase the number of trees to be cleared signficantly.
5 Rose Tree.
This tree drops plenty of sharp debris making passage underneath painful to
walk upon unless very heavy boots are worn. Beasts of burden will not move
through such an area for this reason.
6 Walking tree - Ent
Analog. Currently resting and will not take well with would-be lumberjacks.
7 Trailbane
Pine
. This tree will serve to either hold-up or misdirect the party, or
possibly descend into conflict.
8 Brawlingwood
- Animated tree which strikes with it's branches.
9  Grappelwood - Animated tree
which attempts to grab and hold victims. Will not let go until they rot away.
10 Gorgewood
- Like grapplewood, but will attempt to deposit victims into various large
maws equipped with jagged wooden 'teeth'. 
11 Skullcracker
Oak
- Animated tree which drops coconut-like nuts.
12 Skullcracker
Oak
- Animated tree which <b>throws</b> coconut-like nuts.


5 Tree has been seeded
with many iron spikes and other debris to make cutting it dangerous and
difficult. Assume a 25% chance of at least one 'cutter'
being injured or having their axe broken.
6 Tree is home to
dangerous residents


























1 Mundane Hornet's
Nest - if the tree is not examined before attempts to cut are made, will
swarm and attack any would-be lumberjack.
2 Explodestools - Large
odd-colored mushrooms cover the base of the tree. If they are disturbed, they
will burst violently, knocking nearby people back and creating clouds of
choking spores.
3  Selvaks have been introduced intentionally
into the forests. They are not a real threat for an army - the movement of
troops will scare them off, but against an adventuring party, they are quite
dangerous.
4 Huge Spiders (Any
reasonable sized available will do.) Will not attack unless the tree is
significantly disturbed.
5 A swarm of Aboral
Swarmsnakes will drop onto those disturbing the tree.
6 Consult
Appendix B: Random Forest Encounters for something disturbed by
the chopping.

7 Sentry Totem.
Scattered through the forest are trees that have outlandish human and animal
faces carved into them. Any intelligent being who comes within 30' of one of
these faces, and is in the visual arc, will trigger an alarm which will alert
the defenders of the Fortress, who will begin active defence. At the GM's
option, these totems could also be an active defence - attacking with spells,
etc.
8-10  Tree rapidly regrows at the rate of 1' per
day until 30' height reached unless stump is burned out or completely
removed.

Good stuff Val - My favourite is definitely the ink! It's the odd one out in a series of 'wearable' or 'wieldable' objects. Probably an excellent, material to use to create some kind of demonic summoning circle out of, too, since it seems to draw demons to it. Go to Comment

A very decent followup to Scrasamax's work. I'm kindof stuck in the detail of it all. I'm sure I'll be reading both submission several times before using them. The flavor is just so unique. Go to Comment

Dossta's comment on 2013-05-19 01:35 PM
This was very clever -- it artfully showcased another author's work, while expanding it in a creative and useful way. I hadn't read Scras' Gems of the Underworld yet, and I may never have found it without this piece, so thank you! The only minor suggestion I will make is to preserve the order of gemstones that Scras laid out in his piece, for easy reference. Here you have Xerle and Faridat come after Pirozeh, which was kind of confusing. I'd also put the inks last (or first). Well done! Go to Comment

A great expansion of Scrasamax's Gems. Very useful. I could easily see the typical servant of Hell sidling up to someone and saying something along the lines of "Havin' problems with the ladies, eh? Well, I've got this spear that might help you with that... it'll cost you, though..."

Overall, it was good. Good items, though I do agree with Dossta. You should probably keep you item's gemstone order the same as the way Scrasamax had his. Or convince Scrasamax to have the both of you go alphabetical order or something. Go to Comment

This is a fun item, and with plenty of use! If a PC was willing to smash his teeth out he could keep these in their place. Next time he was put behind bars, he could eat his way out! They could be used to get through walls if you're patient enough (and can open your jaws wide enough to get some good starter bites!) Also good to get rid of incriminating things; Eat the dagger you just used to assassinate that councilman!

In fact, there are so many uses to this item!
- chew through chains
- 'beaver' down some trees for construction
- Eat bone or wood for survival when no other food sources are around
- It it molds things as though they were wax consistency, they could be used to flatten iron for specific uses by chewing on it.
The list goes on!

Also, it seems to have all the necessary information for a 100 word sub. Nice one, Val. Go to Comment

Could you use them to eat something intangible, like a ghost? (making notes for Pac-Man for D&D, don't know if I should go for Barbarian or Ranger though)
