[✓] Submission for Pipeweed


Recommended Posts

Name of your plant/reagent:

Pipeweed


Appearance:

The pipeweed plant is a green, leafy stalk. It’s leaves shoot out from the stalk at regular intervals, giving it a somewhat bushy appearance. It can grow to up to 3 meters tall, although higher heights have been achieved when given lots of care. It is eventually capped with small flowers, which serve as its method for reproduction.

Every fall, pipeweed flowers that have been fertilized will produce seeds with a light tuff to them like dandelions, which then blow away in the wind. Pipeweed seeds can be told apart from dandelion seeds due to their much larger size.

Every winter, pipeweed plants die off. Their seeds lie dormant until spring, where a new batch of pipeweed plants will grow.

Location:

In the wild, pipeweed is usually found along rivers, lakes, streams, and other sources of freshwater. Pipeweed grows best in temperate climates, preferably with a bit of wind. Pipeweed can grow in less favorable climates, although it doesn’t grow as well


Raw effect(s) of the plant/reagent:

Pipeweed, when smoked through a pipe, provides a slight euphoria. Its side effects include coughing, shortness of breath, mild addiction, and lack of awareness of surroundings (some consider this an upside, though).

Harvesting:

Pipeweed, due to its pleasant properties, is frequently farmed as a cash crop. When given enough water and a decent amount of sun, pipeweed can grow just about anywhere that isn’t too hot or too cold. In order to harvest it, the stalks are chopped off in late fall, and then all of the leaves are plucked off to be used in smoking before they fall off of their own accord. The leaves are then dried, crushed, and used in a pipe or cigar.

 

Red Lines:

-Pipeweed’s side effects must be roleplayed. To smoke pipeweed and not show any of its side effects is powergaming.

-Smoking pipeweed provides no other benefit than a pleasant sensation. It has no medicinal value. It provides no pain relief.
