The Tantail Tree
The Tantail Tree of Mesphyr was planted by Arvahnt and Atrius Lammergeier at the center of a defiled shrine deep within the catacombs below Overcairn. The seed, delivered at the behest of Nink, gestated around the ancient calcified body of Mesphyr and grew into a great tree which now grows high above the city, providing the citizens with beauty, safety, and an abundance of fallen fruit.
The deep roots of the tree have stabilised the city, undoing the damage caused by the Wall of Flesh (see Chapter 1), purifying and restricting access to much of the undercity in the process.
Those attuned to the forest can feel Mesphyr’s presence in and around the tree, and those seeking to interfere with its growth or harvest its fruits have a tendency to go missing.
