Jewel-of-the-Mire

By:

“Like the Jewel of the Mire, the soul is a bright light along the dark path of time. “
—Scedebus Scholar

Full Description
The Jewel-of-the-Mire is a floating water-flower, that drifts in great mats in the rivers, swamps, and bogs of the Empire. The Jewel-of-the-Mire is similar to the water-lily, even to the point of looking similar, however, the Jewel-of-the-Mire comes in a variety of brilliant colors, ranging from deep indigo to pearly white to blood red. In some places, Jewel-of-the-Mire mats can completely cover the surface of the water, giving the appearance of a great meadow of flowers.

It is, however, at night that the Jewel-of-the-Mire shows its true beauty. During the moonlight hours, the Jewels seem to take on the Moon’s watery luminescence, glowing and releasing slow beads of light (in actuality clumps of the plant’s pollen) into the water below.

Not everything that is good needs to be magical or dangerous.

It seemed like a great place to camp. The clearing was good sized and sheltered from the wind. The brook just a few feet away. There is a natural hallow to keep the horses.

Then the night came.

It was like it became a different place. The temperature dropped. The wind, which does not seem to disturb cloth, almost cuts through you like an arctic wind. No one can sleep, as the soft ground has turned hard. The horses are uneasy. The Bats are flying over and stopping in the trees.

And then there is the eyes. There are glowing eyes just inside the tree line watching your group. The mages and clerics can detect nothing, but there is still something there.

(yet there is nothing at all... The Darkness will do nothing unless the players do something to it. And even then it will all seem to be a conincidence.)

Of course, in the morning, it all becomes sweet and light.
