Dog Pods


A plant named for its gords, both in the smell of wet dog and for their roughly dog like appearance.

Full Description
Dogpod is a low growing species of gourd which is related to squash and pumpkin. From a tough, thick central stock, there grow twisting, leafy vines which sprawl in a wide circle around the center. From these vines grow it’s name sake, the dogpods.

Dogpods are instantly recognizable. They are about the size of a human head, and for all the world resemble a fibrous, warty, orange-yellow dog curled up to sleep. Though most will tell you that they taste awful, some cultures (generally those who also eat dogs or do not know of dogs) roast and eat dogpod as a staple.

Additional Information

In the early summer, dogpod vines burst out in riots of large pink flowers which smell of wet dog.

Where do you take it from CP? Can I sign up for whatever inspiration source you have?
This is of course WAY too short and WAY too undetailed, but it is fascinating nonetheless!

There is a plant called the Buffalo Gourd that grows in the southwest. During times of plenty, the native indian tribes would use the gourd to make soap, and when times were lean they would eat it. This is what the dog pod reminded me of.

Short, maybe, but something with this vivid a picture doesn't *need* a lot of detail.

While traversing the tractless deserts of Shezmu, the pc's come across a travelling caravan led by Vual, the Demon-Camel, the Lord of Lust, the Thrice-Humped...Vual is cursed to only be able to assume one form outside the Abyss, that of a rather large, golden-skinned three-humped camel,with a frog-like, black, barbed tongue......

Vual is the demonic manifestation of Lust...his followers, a cult of truly disturbed individuals, engage in bizarre orgies, travelling the desert towns, "entertaining" the desert folk with their perverse antics...

Vual's Rapture is what the cultists call their monthly festival, where they perform perverse rites to honor Vual...ofcourse folk come from great distances to witness the festivals, despite themselves, and the Cult of Vual welcomes all...

Surprisingly for such a hideous creature, Vual has the power to beguile and charm with his magical voice. His voice will always sound to pcs as the voice of the person they most desire...his followers also gain this ability slowly over time...

When the pc's meet with Vual, he tries to seduce them into joining his cult. If for whatever reason the pc's resist..well then... Vual would probably kill them for sport, as a lesson for those who "resist Vual's love"....
