Fens First Visit

Fens

Should have packed my wet suit that is for sure. The Age is of a swamp classification, surrounded by rock face. Off the bat I can hear a selection of birds and insects which I should track down.

There seems to be 3 maybe 4 different plants that I can see.
“Fantails” which come in 2 varieties (male plants and female perhaps?) Small “Stonecap” mushrooms and the tall pillar like trees.

The fourth is a strange sack like object that clings to the side of these trees. Upon further exploration I discovered a fallen tree with 3 of these objects upon them. As of yet I have not determined if they are plants, seeds for the mushrooms or if they are a cocoon containing an animal or insect.

Upon further exploration I discovered a Stonecap which had the tendrils that glow red like the tall trees, which lead me to consider that the Stonecaps are the young versions of the Trees or Elder Stonecaps as I decided to refer to them as.

A thought just occurred to me, what if the Elder Stonecaps roots go into the earth, split off into many branches and resurface as the Stonecaps?

I’ll have to talk to Whil and see what he has discovered.
