Corpse Flower    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Deep in the Ankorillian jungles grows the Corpse Flower. A dreaded plant that can entangle and poison you silently.

turn and search for you.
As they backtrack they unknowingly pass your last resting place.
A rather smelly, orange plant.

Yakaram    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)

They will learn, but it will be when they are kneeling before us in their own cities.

Novotie    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)

       By: manfred

The seafaring people of the Southern Islands value their ships greatly, as do other maritime nations. However, they take the beliefs about ships a bit further. A ship's name is very important, once it is named it shouldn't be renamed anymore, ever; most renamed ships seem to fail sooner or later. Ships do not tolerate parts from other ships, a single board from a wrong source can cost sailors their lives, so it is said.

Most ships are identified as female, very few as male, though there is no tale of how their personality is identified; it has nothing to do with the name, for example. The Clarissa (a well-known male ship) is said to like good wine. So whenever sailors or passangers drink, they have to spill a glass for the ship, too. But that is only the most known example.
