Sapphire Rose - The Sapphire Rose (magical materials Water MR 2) is probably the most sought after Wasteland Rose next to the Silver. It is the most difficult to find. As its name implies, its petals are a very deep blue. There are many legends about the Sapphire Rose of the Wasteland. This highly sought after flower has mystical powers. The two most popular legends of the Sapphire Rose are from different ideology.

The first is from the Holy Church of the One True God. It is said that the Monarch, to honor the mother of the Savior as she watched her son die for all Humanity, took one of her tears. He placed that tear in the Wasteland so the people of the land would have hope.

The other legend is that the great wizard consortium was at war with the Darkness. The consortium realized their greatest weapon was the natural beauty of this world. They used a perfect rose to symbolize the natural beauty. They defeated the Darkness. The Consortium decided to use their magick to give the rose eternal life. As a result, the rose turned the color of sapphires.

In either case, the Sapphire Rose is one of the most beautiful of all flowering plants. The bush blooms all year round. If one is lucky enough to find a Sapphire Rose, it is best to be gentle. The use of steel to cut the flower or stalk will instantly cause the flower to explode with the force of 8+1D10 points of concessive damage, in a 4-foot radius. The addition of a single petal to any healing salve will increase the healing effects by 2 points. The petals can be fashioned into a necklace. The necklace protects the wearer from all natural and magical fire. A necklace requires 15 flowers to make.

An infant Sapphire Rose bush will have 1 D10 blossoms on it. An adult Sapphire Rose bush will have 3 D10 blossoms on it. An ancient Sapphire Rose bush will have 6 D10 blossoms on it. There is a legend that a single Sapphire Rose with stem (that is still living) can with stand and protect the holder from the breath of a Fire Dragon. To the authorís knowledge, this has never been tried. The thorns of the Sapphire Rose are hollow. Once the thorn pierces a creature's skin, venom is released. It is similar to that of a giant web spider. 1 D10 quantities of venom can be collected (milked) from an infant Sapphire Rose bush (0-5 years). 3 D10 quantities of venom can be collected (milked) from an adult Sapphire Rose bush (6-15 years). 6 D10 quantities can be collected from an ancient Sapphire Rose bush (16 years and older). The magical guilds list over 1000 uses for the Sapphire rose.

The stems may range from a bluish color, to purplish to almost a deep burgundy red depending upon the acidity of the surrounding soils and the plants' maturity level. Older growths have been seen reaching heights of up to six feet.

This chard got its name because it was noticed that Sea Drakes would seek it out and chew through entire stands at one sitting, especially their young. It appears to contribute to their health in some fashion as well as providing some component for their venom. Older Sea Drakes will favor the reddish stemmed plants; younger ones favor the bluish ones.

The plant itself is not poisonous. In fact, it is excellent for removing toxins from the body. One quantity will add 3% to the efficacy of cordials used against any toxin. If used specifically against any sea creatures' neurotoxin venom, it will add 10%. If used in a poultice against a case of Sea Drake Venom poisoning, it will stop further damage immediately. If it is taken as part of a cordial, it will halt the damage completely and will repair any internal damage if either the plant or the cordial is ingested for 3 days straight.

The Sea Drake Chard is nutritious at 5 NU per pound. There is a 90% chance to find Sea Drakes' Chard in the markets on any continent for 6 P per pound. This may drop as low as 75% the further one gets from the coastline if one is seeking a specific kind of the Chard.

Slavery - Slavery does exist in the Living World of Alquennas. Most victorious armies take war slaves and the number of slaves to be taken is usually one of the key discussions during the bargaining of the terms of surrender. Treatment of these slaves differs from country to country as well as from owner to owner.

The major exception to the existence of slavery in the Living world of Alquennas is the country of Azin.

Azin specifically outlawed all forms of slavery. This decision was not due to an acknowledgement that slavery in any form is wrong; it was made for purely economic reasons.

In TK 200, the nobles of the country of Azin convinced the crown to reduce taxes on slave owners due to the cost of keeping slaves. The Crown reviewed the arguments and agreed to a plan to reduce the taxes. The Crown ordered that for every certain number of slaves that a noble had their taxes would be reduced. This prorated scale allowed several nobles to reduce their taxes greatly to their overlord and to the Crown of Azin itself.

In TK 205, the Crammer house sent a bill to the Crown of Azin. The bill stated that, since they had a greater number of slaves, the credits they were due would not only completely negate any taxes they owed TO the Crown, but in fact amounted to such a sum that they believed that they were owed money FROM the Crown to help support them due to the additional number of slaves that they owned! The King of Azin was outraged. They were outraged by the bill, by its amount, and finally, by the effrontery of the Crammers in presenting it.

Therefore, on the 120th day of TK 205, the King of Azin outlawed slavery in any form in Azin and all of her settlements and territories. The nobles were not too happy with the King's solution. They now claimed that not only were they not getting the tax exemptions they had been promised but that they now had to incur additional expenses to convert the slaves to serfs.

Therefore, the King also began to phase out the practice of serfdom, thus creating a new class of freeman peasant farmers that would owe taxes to their lord. He did this stating that it would provide the cash strapped nobles of Azin with additional revenue.

Slavery in the Horde - Slavery in the Horde is an essential part of the Horde's economics. Throughout history, the Horde has embraced the use of slaves for forced labor. Slave are also be used as currency in transactions between clans. What one must understand is that a slave has worth in the Horde and Horde culture. If one is an exceptional worker, artisan or possesses special gifts, they might be able to buy or barter their way out of slavery. This is not the case for all slaves. Slaves who are sent to training labor camp that is under the control Horde military (See Training Labor Camps) will not have the ability to trade or buy his/her freedom. There are two types of Slaves in the Horde: slave and head slave. The difference between the two types is that a head slave manages the other slaves on the property. This is an office of respect and power. It should be noted that if any of the other slaves anger their masters, the Head slave would pay for it, usually in blood and pain. The Head Slave will pass on his master's gifts of blood and pain to the other slaves on the property.
