White P'nash Berries


There are two types of P’nash trees that survive, the Red berry tree, and the White berry tree. Both can be picked and, other than some mild psychological effects, are rather benign. Combined in the right situation ... Well that’s something else.

Full Description
The P’nash trees are “created” trees, from the works of a race long ago. They sought harmony with nature, be still being a civilised people, harnessed it as well. Their philosophy was not to break the trees, or even bend them, but to shape them. To that end, they gained the knowledge to change a plants nature, how it lived and passed on it’s seed to further generations, to to change the plant from what it was into something that was better suited for their needs.

The White P’nash tree produces a berry much like a Blueberry, but pale white and devoid of color. Typically, these are fermented into a wine with a tranquilizing effect.

However, if the berries are reduced to a paste and, once applied to a person’s body, subjected to a euphoric mental state, the paste has a different effect. Activated paste, by itself, has no effect. If an activated white paste and an activated red paste come into contact, they explode.

Additional Information

Remember that the mental state of the creature wearing the paste is the key. Movement and sound have nothing to do with activating the paste, but if the consciousness of the creature is disturbed, then the mental state is lost.

A humanoid creature covered head to toe in activated paste typically creates a fireball sized explosion.

I would like to link the two berries with the Ascention of the Burgan Tribe plot, but I need some help with the shiney new layout ...

Same comment for this and the other berries (I'd have made them one post I think).

I like the concept, and I like the application we discussed in chat where you had a group of "harmless" monsters become very deadly by using this.

In my campaigns, monsters would not often readily suicide, although some would I reckon. Fanatics... But most animals tend to have a decent sense of self preservation... so I would see this being used more as a last-ditch defense than an attack. Also, in a world with gunpowder or flash powder type item, this possibility already exists, but just isn't used by DMs much. BUT, I like your creative use of berries to do this... it gives it a different feel, and I like that.

I wonder how genuinely one must feel "euphoric" about being about the explode... maybe they drug themselves up to help.

Okay, I'd echo Zylithan, but with more force. There is so little different between the white and red that a second post really is not warranted.

Five main ingredients were used to create this noxious, real-world (ridiculously named), chemical compound, featuring sulfur as the main ingredient. The odor was said to be akin to rotting refuse, decomposing carcasses, and fecal matter. "Who-Me?" Was developed during WW II by the OSS to aid the French Resistance against the Germans. The idea being to utterly humiliate and ultimately demoralize the enemy by making them stink of garbage left to rot under a hot sun.

The bizarre experiment did not last long however as "Who-Me?" could not be administered on select targets (controlled), without making everyone in a certain radius, friend, foe, and sprayer alike, stink as well
