Drooping Trees

By:

"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.

You Can't Go Home Again -- Thomas Hardy

       By: rickster

An adventuress, Semma, has returned to her home village, but something has gone badly wrong: it's the furtive glances, the conversations that stop when she approaches, the childhood friends who now have no time for her. She returns to the town or city and enlists your party to help her find out what's going on.

The party must find out what is wrong: something (perhaps a Cthulhoid monster, perhaps a gang of vampires, perhaps just a bunch of bandits) is extorting obedience from the villagers by threatening their loved ones with at least death. Once the source is discovered, Semma and the party and a few brave yeomen (and women) must deal with the threat by finding its base and defeating it, and then deal with the remnant corrupted villagers who willingly served the Evil Force. These may prove to be the most difficult foe...
