Magical Wood

Useful in the creation of artifacts or the building of homes and lairs, magical wood can reduce expensive enchanting costs by introducing energies native to their species. It should be noted that working with an eldritch lumberjack will be crucial so you do not run afoul with the local fey.

Bluewood: Commonly found in mangroves and near coastlines, these trees are great boons for water-based magic users. Bluewood planks are extremely buoyant and rot resistant. They work well to create platforms and docks, but rarely last more than a few years if not tended to with aquatic potions during dry seasons. Bluewood is best used within a few miles of the harvesting site as these trees tie directly into the local magical ecosystem, providing a filtration of water and storm energy.

Bones of the Earth: An underground tree that synthesizes the glow of subterranean monsters, bone trees are pitch black and extremely gnarled. They often sprout up beneath highly populated forests, drawing down curses and hexes from passing undead and especially wicked monsters. They entwine with the roots from the trees above to create symbiotic relationships, exchanging nutrients and various magical energies. The wood is pulpy and soft, useful for furniture accents and jewelry.

Hexblood: Black and red trees with golden leaves, hexblood trees can be found exclusively in areas deeply afflicted with dark magic. They grow incredibly slowly, taking centuries to mature, so even small twigs are highly prized by malcontents. Hexblood trees exude a chilling aura that is said to corrupt or kill any good-hearted adventurer that gets too close. While this power is dampened once fragments are removed from the tree, they do help channel necromantic and lunar magic.
