New Release: Storybook Wars: Evil Trees

Trees of the forest are either good or bad, with a few exceptions that choose to remain neutral (The Swiss Pine is one example).

Trees such as Knotty Trees and Ol’ Dry Rot are definitely bad.

It is not unheard of for any of them to team up with Twisted Jack Pumpkins to bushwhack wanderers and even try to waylay Santa and his elves at Christmas.

Knotty Trees

Withered, gnarled, and crooked, these trees “gone bad” will waylay and accost travellers by shifting their location, moving landmarks, and throw things to confuse and confound travellers into losing their bearings.

After they tire and confuse their prey, they assail victims with their limbs until they kill or chase them off. The knotty trees will then gather any valuables taken from or dropped by their victims; they then will hide the loot in their trunks or in the ground.

These trees can shuffle across the ground using their roots to pull them across the earth. They are not slow but cannot keep up with anyone moving at a brisk rate.

They can use their roots to trip opponents and their limbs to bludgeon them.

Ol’ Dry Rot

A huge dried hallowed out husk of an old oak that hates all intruders.

He sleeps most of the day and hates being awakened. He can move slowly by lifting his dried out carcass with his strong roots and shambling to a new spot. He can also use his roots to strike an opponent from behind by moving them under the ground, while he distracts them with his gnarled limbs, then bringing the tip up behind and striking.

Ol’ Dry Rot can use his roots to move across the ground and to attack his opponents. He will use his powerful limbs to crush, throw, grab, and swat his opponents. His bark is almost petrified and can withstand axe strikes. He is only susceptible to fire if it is combined with something that will allow it to stick and continue to burn.

He has been known to bully Knotty Trees into helping him attack villagers, farmers, and anyone else encroaching on his territory.

It is not unusual for him to keep a captive trapped inside his hallow trunk to be used for ransom, as a hostage, prisoner, or until he figures out what terrible thing he wants to do to them.

 

Find them in the Storybook Wars section of the Victory Store.
