Sage's Grass, also called Sage Grass, is an integral component in many magical recipes, used for examples by [Alchemists] or [Witches].
Biology and Cultivation Edit
While it is not the most magical stuff, large concentrations of Sage's Grass attract monsters, and it turns animals that feed on it into more monstrous versions. Thus, inattentive Farmers of Sage's Grass need to watch out for dangers: normal rats can turn into monstrous rats and then turn into a plague that also infests other crops.
It grows abundantly in the Floodplains. Other areas rich in Sage's Grass are the Himalt Swampland near Reizmelt, and Celum where Wailant grows it. But the grass also grows in small amounts at various places near Riverfarm.
Sage's Grass was created and bred, according to Octavia's knowledge, more than 5000 years ago by a [Sage] (hence the name), and obliterated the need to kill Unicorns or other magical creatures for their magical properties. It was, as one of the rarest magical components, traded for gemstones in these ancient times.
In contemporary times, collecting and selling wild Sage Grass pays in coppers per pound.
- Sage’s Grass Water, which is produced by keeping Sage's Grass in a nutrient solution, can be used as a booster component in potionmaking, especially healing potions.
- Wiskeria used some handfuls of Sage's Grass for her magical soup intended to strengthen and mend the community of Riverfarm.
