Etheria is a special type of vegetation found most prominently on Elda Island. It’s easily recognizable by its vibrant color and its mysterious ability to attract sprites.

Etheria Trees

While etheria trees are a common theme in Healer lore, yet they are rarely seen. A special etheria crystal grows from the trunk, signifying the tree’s age. The older the tree, the bigger the crystal.

While impressive in size, what makes these trees truly stand out is the reach of their roots, which can travel miles away from the tree.

An etheria tree’s roots plunge deep into the earth, spreading sometimes miles away.

Etheria Bloom

What Healers call etheria bloom is quite common on Elda Island. This type of vegetation, usually growing no higher than one’s knee, is a frequent sight in areas of dense sprite activity, such as Lake Vera.

While many scholars have studied the symbiotic connection between the sprites and etheria bloom, none have found a conclusive answer as to why they like these plants so much.

Story Ideas

  • How would Healers react if etheria bloom started to overrun the streets of Verdalia?
  • Legends speak of a forest of etheria trees in the northern Azalei Mountains. A group of Healers could organize an expedition to find out if the rumors are true.
