Night Eyes


Sometimes, someone is watching in the middle of the night.

Full Description
Night eyes are tiny, delicate, pale blue flowers with white stigma.  They only open at night, and have a unique tendency to point to the mid-point between the two moons. 
Even when the night eyes plant is moved, the flowers still point to the moons, but it may take a few hours for them to turn to the correct point.  Night eyes will continue to point towards them until just before dawn.

Additional Information
It is worth noting that the flowers do not bloom if neither moon is visible in the sky.  This facinating property can potentially be used to tell time, or for navigation, but the plant is far to delicate to the survive rough handling that may be needed for such endeavours.

It is a good flower. Since it can not be rough handled, it eliminates its usefulness. However, putting said plant under a glass dome should make it sturdy enough to avoid having issues.

These plants require shady areas. They tend to dry out quickly in the sun.

Also, they attract the nightly insects to carry their pollen. Yet another ecological niche that got to be exploited.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
