They first burn the body for 24 hours, smash the remains as well as possible, then burn the what is left for another 24 hours.”
“ at a place were magic gathers, for what ever reason, the trees of this place produce fruit that is filled with magic energies . these fruits when eaten cause different effects. much like the potion a wizard makes.”
