BOOM-puffs

By:

These flowers give an... explosive suprise to those who would pick it for its silver stem and gold petals.

In the wild plains there grows a rare flower whose beauty is renowned the world over. The flower only grows in plains where Strong magic has been used frequently. Due to the amount of value one can get from these flowers of gold and silver, they have developed a truly amazing defense, if one of these flowers is picked, they explode violently. This explosion melts the gold and silver and sends it flying in a 10 foot radius. Because the flowers can grow anywhere from 2-3 feet this is very unexpected and many greedy thieves been sent to the grave due to the large amount of molten metal flying into their eyes and necks. The only way to pick these flowers is to use sleeping magic to knock them out long enough to get them out of the ground. Once out of the ground they can be transplanted and from there can be used as decoration for those who don't know what it can do. They can also be used as a booby trap or assassination tool.

It took me a couple minutes to get over the balance between sun and moon because that is not how our system works. Understanding it is an alien planet still had me perplexed. I didn't want to go down that science road though so tried to quickly come up with a different way to balance them vs. saying "equal."

The main point would be they only grow in one location which allows you to come up with any back story and then I was able to move on. And they have to be magic for all the reasons they are around.

I would want to take dirt and transplant them though. I would make the leap that they are very rare and few outside the immediate area know about them. A secret they want to keep. However, if you took one and potted it and gave it as a gift...told them to plant it in their garden with their own hand to maintain the magic. Any story like that. Then it is the perfect assassination tool. Albeit an expensive one.

Just make whatever changes you want and submit again. It will edit it. I guess the wording isn't very obvious on the edit screen but it will save updates when you click on Submit Post.

An interesting little sub, perhaps useful as a booby trap.

Solid Post! After the flowers are picked the gold and silver are still around? If so I could see some dangerous, bloody harvests yet very profitable harvests.

Grizzled Know it All" "No, over yonder ridge are the lands of Valok the Summoner. It is Boom-puff season. What you hear is the sound of his golems picking flowers."

FFNG "Oh, I see....what?"

Do we have compendium or codex of all the magical flowers on the site?

Once a year, the king steps down from his throne, and lives as a peasant for one day, the next day is the anniversary of his coronation, and it is celebrated by a reenactment of the ceremony. This is doubly beneficial, firstly, because the people are able to have the grand parade that always precedes the ceremony. Secondly, because the heir to the throne is given a day on the job every year. Although, apparently, the thought has not yet come to one of the kingdoms enemies, the assassination of the king during the renewal coronation would be a moral, as well as a political blow to the kingdom.
