King's Finger

By:

It is a squeeky clean flower.

Full Description
A small stalky flower that many would first guess as a weed. Small sharp bends on its stalk threaten sharpness but bend under the smallest amount of pressure.

The small groupings of thumbnail sized flowers are a dirty off-white color that are simply ugly. To smell the flower is to conjure a vision of decaying tree rot.

Additional Information
Not many would give it a second chance, but those that have realized that if the flower and stalk are mixed in equal proportions, boiled for 3 hours, and strained that they make the best handwashing water known. The subtle scent perfumes the hand just barely while the strength of it is enough to get the most stubborn boar or deer grease off the gnarliest of fingernails with a single dip.

The source of soap? Who thought to boil these things? That was one bored herbalist and really hungry person.

Maybe an alternate source of soap, as there already is a medievil source... cute.

Simple, utilitarian. A good bit of background detail. 30 words over a 100-word challenge entry, probably could be edited to fit that.

Quool's Tide

       By: Murometz

Once every decade on the eve of St. Poskov's Day during mid-winter, the coastal city of Tiyabon experiences a horrific event. Quool's Tide rolls in, depositing hundreds of bloated, fish-eaten corpses upon the pebbly shores of Tiyabon's wide bay. This singularity is to this day unexplained, though countless theories abound. It is said for example, that these corpses are not eaten by the myriad fish of the seas completely, due to the fear all creatures of the seas hold for Quool.

Named for Quool, a terrible, antediluvian god of seas and storms, who no longer exists for he has no worshipers, the Tide chokes the beaches and surf with the countless rotting bodies of those who had perished at sea in a violent way.

Almost immediately, the lifeless corpses are fed upon by crabs, gulls, and worse things that await the horrid feast. The townsfolk let nature take it course with disinterested disgust, though lately some enterprising adventurers have taken to searching along the beaches of flesh for former deceased companions, with intentions of raising them again!

Surprisingly no undead ever rise from among the many corpses. This is also a mystery.
