10 Farms of New Feierland

I am making a game. It will be great. Here are some types of farms you will probably burn down by accident.

1. Leperberry Vineyard:
A fibrous, greyish vine that produces globular berries with the appearance of leprous skin. Taste of liver and honey.

2. Shameweed Cages & Squiddery
A long, rubbery sea-algae, originally named due to heavy consumption by the poorest and least capable of early settlers. Shameweed is now a staple for most households.  Served best with whiskey.

3. Maidensbean Lattices
Maidensbean is a climbing plant with pungent, noxious leaves. The thin, rusty pods are thought to increase fertility when eaten raw. Metallic, grassy flavour.

4. Mudapple Plantation
A willowy tree, often climbed by children and foxes. The fruit is a waxy stonefruit that tastes of sweetened clay. Prone to dropping large, heavy branches..

5. Swinemason
A fairly typical hog-farmer, so named after a bureaucratic adventure pronounced certain beastwranglers to be true artisans and craftsfolk. Swine are often enchanted by fae to entusk children and spirit them into the woods

6. Elfroot farm
Elfroot, identifiable by its curled, whispery foliage, is a perfectly starchy root vegetable when properly prepared. When poorly prepared, the nutty flesh can cause ensorcellment, drowsiness, or madness.

7. Foxfruit Orchard
This oaklike tree bears a heavy, orange fruit that was thought to be favoured by foxes. It is not. It is, however, feasted upon by pheasants and elves, two favourite meals of foxes. Tastes of carrot and turmeric.

8. Fenbird Hatchery
Fenbirds are middling, dappled creatures that stalk the damplands of New Feierland. Hatcheries consist of habitat implementation, large nets and, seasonally, numerous youths with wooden polehammers.

9. Goatsmith
Once used primarily for labor and disposal, farming for goatflesh was popularised after conflict escalated with the Emaciated Goatheads of the Frankenwood.

10. Hogsfern grove
The new-growth of Hogsfern fronds are edible raw, though this is not recommended. The taste is sweet and fresh, but the mass of irritating hairs and spores are foul and dangerous. Cooking and filtering helps, but this process renders the plant bitter and fibrous.


  1. It's super evocative. Is it going to be a sort of setting book, or a setting with its own rules set? Also, when? :P

    1. A bit of both - A rules set, a setting, and some tools to make your own settings.

      I'm busy generally, in life, so I work on it when I don't have other things to prioritise.

      I'm going to do a lot of work on it at the end of the year, so we'll see after that. A labour of love, so not forcing any deadlines.
