Physical Description

Sabre bush appears as a thick cluster of twisted and knotted vines from which sprout long, curved blade-like thorns. This tangled mess has dark brown bark which peels off in shreds. The blade-like thorns are smooth and bright green.

Physical Properties

This bush grows very thick, is difficult to cut and does not burn easily. The thorns of sabre bush are hard and can be sharpened and used as weapons. The natives of the Fire Isles fashion armor and spiked weapons from sabre bush.

Geographic Distribution and Habitat

Sabre bush grows wild in many wilderness regions throughout the world. It tends to grow in temperate and tropical forests, jungles and mountainous regions.

Notes

Many historians and scholars believe sabre bush was engineered through selective breeding (or possibly magic) and was developed as a biological weapon. It is now used as an natural barrier by many nations, groups and races. Some nobles plant it on the either side of stone curtain walls as a deterrent against intruders. Goblins and orcs have been known to use it as barriers on their walls as well.
