Abyssal Blackgrass

Thick black weed native to the Underdark that propagates via tiny seeds. On the surface, it appears as 1-foot diameter clumps, but its roots extend in a 50 ft diameter just beneath the surface. Natural healing is prevented when standing above its roots, and magical healing only heals half the normal HP. If the clump is pulled out, the plant survives and regrows the clump in 1d4 days. Only digging up the whole root system or the use of a Blight-type spell can truly kill it. Has taint-mechanic boosting effects.

Adder’s Tongue

The herb has one leaf which grows from a stalk about three inches from the ground. Its appearance gives it its name. The leaf must be boiled in olive oil and set in the sun for three days. At the end of that time, the infusion can be used as a balm for wounds. In the event that the wound is infected the balm will draw out the infection within one day. However, for that one day, the damage caused by the infection will be twice as severe. If the wound is not infected the balm will increase the rate of healing by 1 hp for that day.

Balon’s 

Growing close to the ground in areas with minimal water, the plant only sprouts a trio of wide leaves that spread outward to absorb as much moisture as possible. Below the sand, the root system delves deep to find hidden reservoirs of water that are not evident on the surface. Also known as “bread of the desert”, this plant develops large spherical fruits nearly the size of a man’s head. These fruits have a tough and leathery exterior, but when cut open, the fruit has the consistency of fluffy bread or cake. The seeds of the fruit are quite small. Each fruit contains enough nutrients to sustain four people for a day. Unfortunately, farming the plant seems to be near impossible.

The spore then begins to grow, causing irritation, pain, and finally death once the fungus has reached a sizable mass. Once the host creature has perished, the fungus increases growth rapidly until it pushes a hollow tendril forth from the flesh. At the exposed end of the tendril the fungus begins growing a thin membrane, which is inflated by the gasses produced by the rotting body. When the membrane ruptures and disperses the spores, every breathing creature within a 40-foot radius sphere must make a DC 10 Constitution saving throw or have spores inhaled. If they fail, each hour afterward, the creature must make a Constitution saving throw with a -1 cumulative penalty to the roll. Each hour the creature suffers a cumulative 1d6 piercing damage (2d6 on the second failure, 3d6 on the third, etc.) as the fungus spreads throughout the internal organs. A single success stops the process and renders the fungus inert. If the fungus catches fire and explodes, everyone within a 20-foot radius sphere suffers 3d6 damage on a failed Dexterity saving throw, DC 15, or half as much on a successful save. All spores are incinerated in this process.

Flintmoss

A dark grey moss, dotted with small flecks of rust-brown, Flint Moss is commonly found in areas of thermal activity or bright and constant sunlight. The moss requires fire to spread its seeds, and will ignite from even the smallest sparks. A 3" cube of Flint Moss will burn for 3 to 4 hours and put off flame comparable to a normal sized camp fire. The moss growing on piles of rubble or loose rock is the most dangerous as friction from shifting stones can cause the rust-colored flecks to produce sparks, turning what was once a moss-covered mound of debris into a raging inferno. Application of Flintmoss to a bludgeoning weapon will add +3 fire damage to any successful attacks made with the weapon for 1d6 hours after application.

Goblin-Trap

Often found in clusters, these plants resemble brown leathery vases sitting on the ground with ragged leaves splayed out around the base where thick roots grasp the earth. The tops are open, and if one should peer inside the glint of their golden seeds can be seen in the interior. However, these plants are traps, and many explorers have come across the remains of smaller humanoids, their hands still clutching the golden seed pods. If someone is unwise enough to stick their hand within the pod, they must make a DC 15 Dexterity save or suffer 1d4 damage from the internal spines of the plant, and are then grappled. Their leathery surface has an Armor Class of 11, and to free a trapped arm 10 points of damage must be inflicted upon the plant. Ripping the plant out of the ground requires a Strength check, DC 20, and inflicts another 1d4 damage upon the trapped victim.

Gravefist

A pale white mushroom with five knobby protrusions, the mushroom often resembles a skeletal hand reaching upward. When the mushroom grows in clusters, it appears as if numerous corpses are attempting to reach out of the soil. The fungus predominantly grows in the Underdark, however, it has also been seen in dark basements and root cellars. Several tales of superstition follow the fungus, many believing that if it appears in rooms below your house, someone will soon die in the building. This may be partially due to the fact that the mushrooms release toxic spores that slowly inflict 4d8 poison damage over 2d8 days to people afflicted by the poison effect.

Grim Flowers

These dark violet flowers are often found at the edges of graveyards and sites of massive battles. Those that tend gravesites often call them “Death Trumpets” for their shape, and they emit a smell similar to that of a corpse. Thus, when such flowers are noticed, they are often pulled up by the root, to remove such an unpleasant odor. However, despite their terrible odor, it is believed by followers of some religions that should you die with the seeds of this plant in your possession, your spirit will find an easier path to the afterlife. Thus, many keep the seeds of such a flower in a cloth bag close to their chest. Unfortunately for others, this means that the flowers often sprout from the corpse several days after the death of such individuals.

Guardseye

This 40-cm high perennial has smooth, dark blue leaves and a woody stem. It has white, cuplike flowers, with purple flecks on the inside. In autumn, the plant dies except for a thick root that can be up to 50 cm long, but even dead, it does not shed its leaves.

This rich liquor is sought after for its taste and smell. When a character drinks Korogg Liquor, they must make a DC 14 Wisdom save or fall under the effects of the liquor. The liquor quells freethinking: no person who drinks it need make an Investigation check while under its influence for the duration of a day, as the result will incur a -8 penalty since they can’t think of anything their investigation might mean, and the consumer takes a -1d6 penalty to wisdom checks after consumption until the next long rest.

Anyone who eats the yellow, soft, plum sized fruits instantly has two random stats exchanged; Strength with Constitution, Wisdom with Dexterity; anything is possible (the DM should determine which statistics are exchanged). There is no saving throw, and no cure (no easy one anyway; if you as DM want one, make it up). Eating more of the berries will simply cause more stats to be randomly exchanged. Short of magical storage, the fruits will spoil and rot within 2 days after plucking. The bush itself grows about 2 meters high, with long, dusty green leaves, which are slightly sawed. The flowers grow in groups of 4 to 8, and are yellowish white with orange edges. The flowers grow in late spring, the fruits are ripe in autumn.

The berries taste quite bland themselves, but they can be used to add a special taste to all kinds of jellies. When ripe, the berries can be eaten raw, and will each heal 2 hp of damage. However, they will also render the eater mute for 20 minutes for each berry eaten. Also, if more than 5 or 6 berries are eaten at a time, a saving throw vs poison is required to avoid severe stomach cramps. A jelly made from the berries themselves loses both the healing and silencing powers of the fresh berries.

Lizard Eaters

A hardy vine that grows in the nooks and crannies of stones, and can often be found in older cities or in ruins. The vine grows rapidly, and every few feet a small yellow flower sprouts from the vine, surrounded by a handful of tendrils. These flowers smell very faintly like rotting meat, which is used to attract vermin such as small lizards and rats. When the vermin begin to eat the flower, the tendrils quickly close around the creature, slowly constricting and choking the life from the creature. This feature causes many urban dwelling folks to not only tolerate the presence of the vine, but to also encourage such growth.

Lizuara

Found only growing in freshwater at least 30ft deep, Lizuara is a translucent green grass that cursl and uncurls on its own.

A pale white moss that often grows on dead trees in marsh environments. Those familiar with the moss know to avoid it, as it attacks the living. Those that approach within 10 feet cause the moss to violently thrash about, forcing those within the area to make Dexterity saving throws, DC 13, or be grappled by the moss. Escaping the grasp of the moss requires a Strength saving throw, DC 11. The moss then implants spores that burrow into the skin of the trapped creature, inflicting 1d6+1 damage per round. After the creature is implanted, they suffer Disadvantage to all attribute and skill checks, as a terrible malaise washes over them. Once the creature dies, the body sprouts a new mass of spirit moss. The implanted spores can be destroyed by the application of heat to the affected area on the round after implantation, or with a Lesser Restoration or similar magic after that point.

Waxiri Tree

  • Purple Acid

Waxtrees have large, fuzzy, almost white leaves that grow in bunches at the ends of twisted, dark brown, woody branches that are 1-3 inches thick. While most commonly growing to a height of 2-3 feet, some Wax Trees have been known to grow as large as 8 feet tall. A shallow and spreading root system robs nearby plants of food and moisture causing these trees to be found with few neighbors, even in areas of otherwise dense vegetation. The branches, if broken, ooze a translucent purple, viscous fluid that smells vaguely of citrus.

The liquid can be boiled with soured milk and spider venom to create flesh eating acid that deals 2d10 acid damage when it comes into contact with organic material. (it does not affect metal and the like)

Waxworm

A strange and small plant that is often found growing on rotting logs and animal droppings, the plant lacks much of a root system.

Painters also seek out the substance, as it causes the colors to resist fading over the years.
