Sky Pods

By:

A strange sight of the wastes, long green streamers pinned to the sky floating on the wind.

This is a plant that only grows in The Wastes. No other land boasts a plant like this one. The yellow green "strand" appears to be one broad grass leaf, anchored to the ground with some moderately deep roots. It extends into the sky, pulled upwards by several pods. While there are a few pods randomly along the long grass leaf, there is a main cluster of 3 to 8 pods at the skyward end of the strand.

When something begins to eat the strand, it breaks and the rest of the pods float away. The frond can regrow roots when it touches the ground long enough. If it does not, the pods will dry up and explode (in a fiery burst) and shower seeds across a wide area.

If you are having a problem visualizing it, think seaweed fronds.

Oh and they do not grow in other places as they need the odd toxic chemicals from paraliquid soil of The Wastes to inflate their pods.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
