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.

Lovely, evocative, flower. Manfred's comment makes me ponder "night pollen" as a potential spell component. And of course can picture cults/followers of lunar deities, with fields of these delicate flowers around their holy sites.

The Earthblood Warrens are a series of caverns in which dwell men who live around the Earthblood Vein, a river of magma. They use the magma from the Earthblood Vein to warm and light their homes and cook their food. The Warrens are several miles long, stretching along the banks of the Earthblood Vein, and since nobody wants to walk that far, the Earthbloodmen capture large, magma-swimming serpents, which they train and ride.
