The Wizard's Rube


A bright red flower that faces certain directions all in unison.

Full Description
A bright red flower that faces certain directions all in unison.

Nobody can quite understand the power that turns the flower but it is a very enchanting encounter when there is a large shift in the Wizard’s Rube. A bright fiery flower that grows in bunches which suddenly, as a unit, shifts it’s direction 90 degrees. It is considered good luck if you are able to witness a Rube Change, as it is called.

Most often it is very subtle as it slowly rotates its gaze. Every Wizard’s Rube that has been checked has always uniformly pointed the same direction no matter how far apart they are.

Additional Information
There might be something in your world that drives this change.

Just what popped to mind when I read it. I really meant to say that it was usable and exotic, but I feel like I am saying the same thing in every setting information post.

Another timing/ mystically sensing plant. At least yours seems less effective because no one knows the corralation.

Kinda spooky flower if you ask me. If I saw an entire cluster of flowers turn and point to another direction I was choose to walk away in the other direction. Very spooky.

I like it - a new idea, and some mystery to it.

this sounds like a good, fun thing to throw at my characters in the conservatory of the castle... it turns in the middle of their exploration, and they spend the rest of the session trying to figure out why. =D

Might adapt its use it in my campaign, but instead of always in the same direction It points to the nearest ley-line. (which will appear to be the same direction) kind of like a leyline sunflower. (my pc's know nothing of the lines nor that some of their powers only work while they are within one, I chart out ley lines on my maps and change encounters based on if they are within a line or not)

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.
