Drooping Trees


"Just when I thought it could not get any hotter, we cleared the crest of a small hollow. There was the most magnificent sight, a huge shadey tree hidden in the depression. It must of been there for decades for I had never seen a Drooping Tree that large before and in my decades of prospecting since,"  Exerpt: A Prospector’s Tale, VOL XXIII Blue Guild Press

These fast growing trees look like broad, relatively low weeping willows. They have spread out roots and limbs as to protect them from Verners (as a Verner will not eat what it can not easily get into their huge maws). Most droopers do not live long enough to gain their protective size. The Drooping Trees live only about six years before the toxic nature of The Wastes destroys them, and three of those years are growing to that full size. Few droopers managed to make it to any notable size.

Their wood is soft and full of smokey resin that unleashes an obnoxious smell. So Droopers are useful for little but a bit of shade.

Drooper leaf pods blow on the wind and can be quite a bother. They are like a pea pod - long, but with only one bean in the top most piece. The rest of the curly pod allows it to flitter in the wind. They can nod seed outside The Wastes, as the acid is required to eat through the pod for the seed to germinate.

A culture has it forbidden to say their rulers name under penalty of death. Anybody in power must be referred to as their title. Comes from the fact that the rule or position can be taken over by anybody from any level in society. To use the title elevates them or brings them down from whatever level they were originally at before they took the position. Respect and authority comes from the position, not from previous life.
