Slow Death Cap    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Sylvan Incubus Tree    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)

The Sylvan Incubus is a common name for the plant Dendrophagia Necrofoenae, a member of the Necrofoenae family. Like all Necrofoenae, it feasts on the dead - but it is one of the few that actually murders it's prey, before it feasts.

-Court Herbologist Gertrard di Vini, from his tome "dyFoenis Terrae Modae" - On the Plants of New Terra

The Mel Victus    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)

A silent vestige sits among the vine covered ruins in a forest that has overgrown who once lived here. No more towers rise among the skeletal remains of a seeming once vast city. Instead, carved into the face of a leveled statue of a man, peaceful in his dead slumber now are etched the words - Si vis pacem para bellum – If you want peace, prepare for war.

Trailbane Pine    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)

“Wait, is that the same Damn tree we’ve been seeing all day?”, Ured the strong demanded.  “No… Yes, yes it is.” stammered Fenstill the mage. 
“Well, I’m sorry, but I’ll have to kill you now…” said Ured, drawing his sword.  “I understand,” said the mage, wondering why he got into the magic business anyway…

With apologies to Monty Python…

Demontrumpets    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)

       By: Strolen

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.
