Amecylia

By:

Also known as Virgin’s Rose, the Secret Flower, and the Scarlet Lady

Full Description
Amecylia is a water loving plant that can be found in slow moving water such as small ponds and harbored parts of larger lakes. The plant grows mostly beneath the surface of the water, having long stems and strong roots. The bulb like root can be pulled up and if cooked long enough, can be eaten. The blossom of Amecylia is the most visible and valued part of the plant. Resembling a rose, the blossom if handled roughly comes apart into many individual red petals. Each petal holds a seed in it’s base. A wave can break a flower and carry these seed sails well away from the mother plant.

Aqua Amecylia
If steeped in hot water, Amecylia makes for a strong if unpleasant tasting tea. This tea is a good cure all for stomach and digestive ills and has been given to women with menstrual pains and disagreable temperament. The second, more scandalous use of the Aqua Amecylia is to make a hot bath and scatter the petals of at least three large blossoms into the water and let it steep. Once the bath water is light pink, a woman can bath in it. This bath is known to restore the physical aspect of virginity.

In some areas, Amecylia is clear cut and weeded out like a pest. Strong church areas will make regular efforts to burn out the whore’s weed, and assert that prayer is the best cure for the menses, and marriage is the only cure for virginity.

The Amecylia blossom can be used as a spell component for spells that deal with love, divining marriage, and easing pain. Oddly, this pain relief only works for women. A man who drinks the pink tea gains nothing more than a rumbling belly and a touch of gas.

Oh, this one is very nice from a societal perspective! Of course the church despises this flower! Well done.

Taking it from menstrual relief to re-virginification was a surprise! I have to admit the 'how' stumps me severely, but who cares! :-)

Also nice little touch on edible bulb, quite like a lily.

Whoa... that was a surprise jolt to me as well! A simple effect with major consequences. I would imagine it could get quite rare, some foolish girls could be made to pay good money for any similar red flower.

Short and provocative. :)

A good little detail with great socialogical impacts :P

Now, I think there needs to be some type of downside to its benefit, though I can't think of what yet.

heavily increased arousal and desire would be a good side effect, increasing the difficulty of keeping the newly reacquired "virginity" and heightening the chance of getting caught.

Interesting flower,although I woudl enjoy seeing more of the back story of just how they discovered it's second, and more potent application.

How often have you seen things like women bathing in milk, rose water and other concoctions for supposed medical or anagathic benefit? The real source I would guess is that as a water plant, if a woman were to swim in an area with many of these plants, it could work like a hot bath, but would just take longer.

This is so brilliant I want to find a way to put it in my (rather misogynistic) game world. I just love how it is so small and simple but has such broad ramifications.

What if when a character died and the price to bring him back into the world was to allow an evil or good version to be placed in the world with the sole purpose of killing the character that just got its life back? The copycat character would die apon completeing his mission.....or would he?
