Assorted Trees Of The Magewood: Peach
.

The Magewood is a purposefully enchanted woodland of approximately 20,000 acres. At it’s center is Magewood Village. Part of the enchantment of Mage wood lies in the very trees themselves. Here is one of them.

In a small clearing on the southwest side of the Magewood grows a lone peach tree. To the creatures and people of the woods it is a source of large sweet fruits. The aroma of ripe peaches can be smelled a mile away.

To those who enter the woods unwanted, the smell is irresistible and the find themselves drawn to it. But the sweet fruit has a singular effect upon them, causing hallucinations and madness for many hours. Eventually, these trespassers run screaming from the woods, telling wild tales of monsters and demons and trees come to life.

Oddly, none of their terrifying tales ever mention a peach tree.

Assorted Trees Of The Magewood: Eucalyptus

The Magewood is a purposefully enchanted woodland of approximately 20,000 acres. At it’s center is Magewood Village. Part of the enchantment of Mage wood lies in the very trees themselves. Here is one of them.

Not being native to this part of the world, the mighty 100 foot tall eucalyptus tree that stands near the northwestern edge of the woods seems very out of place.

But when people try to enter the woods, the eucalyptus drives them out with a dense cloud of leaves that all exude a strong camphoraceous vapor that not only chokes the victims, bit makes their eyes water badly. The cloud them chases them out of the woods.

By the time they get back to civilization, the smell is completely gone from the scalawags, so nobody ever believes their stories.
