The forest holds many treasures. Some of the most important ones are not made of delicate gold or carved marble. Rather, they are harvested, ground, mixed with various other herbs, and used as potions, poultices, or poisons.
@jasoncordova and I are putting together a standalone book for the Trophy RPG (the game and its many expansions are currently featured in each new issue of Codex). One of the things we’re going to do with this book is include numerous tables that help flesh out the world Trophy takes place in. Keeping with the spirit of Trophy as a community project, we’re going to be crowdsourcing many of the elements that go into these tables. We already have a number of these crowdsourcing threads underway, any of which you can still contribute to. They can be found in this master list:
For this installment, we’re exploring the strange substances concocted from parts of the forest. We’re looking for one type of contribution:
Elixirs, tinctures, and herbal remedies discovered in the Forest of Kalduhr
NOTE: Please avoid anything that feels like sexual predation or that is misogynistic in nature. We won’t print such things.
You can submit as many entries as you wish. By submitting here, you agree to let us use your contribution in the Trophy standalone book and PDF (you will be credited as a contributor). Submissions should be fairly brief (just a few sentences). Here are some examples:
“Praised by innkeepers and despised by musicians, the deep violet berries of the whisperbush plant cause a temporary deafness when ingested.”
“Found growing along just one rocky stretch of the Naveh River, the tendril-covered sunburst mushroom must be harvested using metal gauntlets. Failing to do so is a painful mistake, as the mushroom voraciously consumes virtually any organic matter it is put into contact with.”
“The pale green stonefruit known as The Duchess’ Delight was the first plant from the forest to find a home in the fine gardens of Ambaret. Not only did it thrive as a cultivated plant, its soft, sweet flesh began providing an additional benefit. When fermented and distilled, the Delight emboldens the drinker, reducing fear, anxiety, and inhibition.”
