|The Tree of Ages Uprooted|
Story description[edit | edit source]
"Its carapace cracks like armoured ice. Bulbous, many-legged shapes swarm out, flood the water - the spiders which comprise its flesh, fleeing like rats. It's breaking up!"

Kill the Tree of Ages.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
The Tree of Ages carries no cargo, only spider-flesh and venom - but perhaps you have a need for spider-flesh.
Here is a writhing organ, there a twitching limb. Your ship slows as it navigates a slick of stinking, dying spider-flesh awash with bluish, copper-smelling blood. You see and learn more than you'd ever wish. There! There, in that tubule-sheath! Haul it out with a boat-hook. What is it?
There will always be another Tree of Ages. The sorrow-spiders are patient, and numberless. But you have this one's heart.
Watch the dissolution. Learn what you can.
|A safe distance?
You skirt a slick of stinking, dying spider-flesh awash with bluish, copper-smelling blood. Faces form in the bubbles at its edges. Voices cry out in the languages spoken between the stars. The sorrow-spiders have come far, to lair in this place, and now you have ended their fierce lives. There will be more. There will always be more.
