Night Eyes

By:

Sometimes, someone is watching in the middle of the night.

Full Description
Night eyes are tiny, delicate, pale blue flowers with white stigma.  They only open at night, and have a unique tendency to point to the mid-point between the two moons. 
Even when the night eyes plant is moved, the flowers still point to the moons, but it may take a few hours for them to turn to the correct point.  Night eyes will continue to point towards them until just before dawn.

Additional Information
It is worth noting that the flowers do not bloom if neither moon is visible in the sky.  This facinating property can potentially be used to tell time, or for navigation, but the plant is far to delicate to the survive rough handling that may be needed for such endeavours.

It is a good flower. Since it can not be rough handled, it eliminates its usefulness. However, putting said plant under a glass dome should make it sturdy enough to avoid having issues.

These plants require shady areas. They tend to dry out quickly in the sun.

Also, they attract the nightly insects to carry their pollen. Yet another ecological niche that got to be exploited.

Lovely, evocative, flower. Manfred's comment makes me ponder "night pollen" as a potential spell component. And of course can picture cults/followers of lunar deities, with fields of these delicate flowers around their holy sites.

Rural Mystery

       By: Murometz

The PCs are making their way from village to village across a rural hinterland, when they spot a weird sign along a farmstead's fence, with an arrow pointing to the actual farmstead.

"CRAZY DANCING HOES!!"

If they investigate, a rather sedate local farmer, explains to them that for a mere two coppers, they can witness the show for themselves.

The show involves six ordinary, animated hoes "dancing" on a makeshift stage, as the farmer accompanies them by slapping his thighs to keep the beat, and playing on his flute.

If asked how the trick is accomplished the farmer demurs, not wanting to share his "secret".

"If you can get Old Man Purkiss to tell you how he gets his cows to spout poetry, I'll tell you how I make my hoes dance."

In reality, this minor encounter can lead to the PCs discovering that some localized, magical effect is active in the area. All kinds weird phenomena seem to occur in these parts.

Perhaps the PCs have finally found the ley-line of mana energy that they have been searching for! The party's wizard gets excited.
