Prankster Plant

By:

A small magical plant with a love for pulling pranks.

Appearance:

The Prankster Plant looks like a small leafy fern.  The only unusual aspect is that at the end of it’s stems there are leaves shaped like hands.

Background:

No one really knows where the Prankster Plant came from but all indications point to a magical experiment gone wrong.

Roleplaying Notes:

The plant is imbued with a high intelligence and wicked sense of humor.  It’s able to uproot itself and move about on it’s strong stems like a spider.  Usually waiting for travelers to bed down for the night, the plant will then spend the next few hours stealing items (everything from gold to shoestrings) and framing other party members for it, getting into map cases and adding a few wrong turns, lossing straps on saddles and pouches, and just generally causing all sorts of mischief.  It’s incredibly hard to detect the Prankster Plant as it can move silently through the camp and let’s face it, no one on watch is gonna suspect that small fern near the wagon of any wrong doing.

How bad a riding check to they have to make to leave their horses saddled overnight? Does the fern still use sunlight for food or does it scavange food from travelers? If it is smart enough to make wrong turns on a map, can it write or communicate at all, and what would it have to say?

Ummmm. This is a character? Do you have a lifeform or monster category? Or is this the only one?

I like this! I find it very appealing and funny, even in its brevity.

I Loled. Imagine the trouble an infestation of these plants could do in a village or city? Cue the silly music.

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
