Prankster Plant

By:

A small magical plant with a love for pulling pranks.

Appearance:

The Prankster Plant looks like a small leafy fern.  The only unusual aspect is that at the end of it’s stems there are leaves shaped like hands.

Background:

No one really knows where the Prankster Plant came from but all indications point to a magical experiment gone wrong.

Roleplaying Notes:

The plant is imbued with a high intelligence and wicked sense of humor.  It’s able to uproot itself and move about on it’s strong stems like a spider.  Usually waiting for travelers to bed down for the night, the plant will then spend the next few hours stealing items (everything from gold to shoestrings) and framing other party members for it, getting into map cases and adding a few wrong turns, lossing straps on saddles and pouches, and just generally causing all sorts of mischief.  It’s incredibly hard to detect the Prankster Plant as it can move silently through the camp and let’s face it, no one on watch is gonna suspect that small fern near the wagon of any wrong doing.

How bad a riding check to they have to make to leave their horses saddled overnight? Does the fern still use sunlight for food or does it scavange food from travelers? If it is smart enough to make wrong turns on a map, can it write or communicate at all, and what would it have to say?

Ummmm. This is a character? Do you have a lifeform or monster category? Or is this the only one?

I like this! I find it very appealing and funny, even in its brevity.

I Loled. Imagine the trouble an infestation of these plants could do in a village or city? Cue the silly music.

The seafaring people of the Southern Islands value their ships greatly, as do other maritime nations. However, they take the beliefs about ships a bit further. A ship's name is very important, once it is named it shouldn't be renamed anymore, ever; most renamed ships seem to fail sooner or later. Ships do not tolerate parts from other ships, a single board from a wrong source can cost sailors their lives, so it is said.

Most ships are identified as female, very few as male, though there is no tale of how their personality is identified; it has nothing to do with the name, for example. The Clarissa (a well-known male ship) is said to like good wine. So whenever sailors or passangers drink, they have to spill a glass for the ship, too. But that is only the most known example.
