Sky Pods

By:

A strange sight of the wastes, long green streamers pinned to the sky floating on the wind.

This is a plant that only grows in The Wastes. No other land boasts a plant like this one. The yellow green "strand" appears to be one broad grass leaf, anchored to the ground with some moderately deep roots. It extends into the sky, pulled upwards by several pods. While there are a few pods randomly along the long grass leaf, there is a main cluster of 3 to 8 pods at the skyward end of the strand.

When something begins to eat the strand, it breaks and the rest of the pods float away. The frond can regrow roots when it touches the ground long enough. If it does not, the pods will dry up and explode (in a fiery burst) and shower seeds across a wide area.

If you are having a problem visualizing it, think seaweed fronds.

Oh and they do not grow in other places as they need the odd toxic chemicals from paraliquid soil of The Wastes to inflate their pods.

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
