You are looking at one of the very few examples of "borrowed evolution". This is a Counting Pine, a species of tree that lets other vegetables do their evolving for them, saving millions of years of trial and error. In the dim and distant past this species tried to work out why humans cut trees down. The entire species concluded that it was to count their rings and hence find the tree's age. Overnight every counting pine developed a sign at about eye level telling its precise age. Within a year the entire species was brought to near extinction by the ornamental house numberplate industry.

Pine [sapling] - (not in Gloomy Forest)

This up-and-coming young tree is just branching out, trying to make its way in the world. It slouches, mutters about its parents, and rebels in every way possible. Unfortunately for it, a tree can never wander too far from its roots. It can, however, dye them black and experiment with wild new leaf colours.

  • Alignment: 7 degrees of evil


  • No special uses

Special Notes

  • One should be careful when felling trees that one does not become squished
  • While some saplings may be found alone, more often are in groups and/or with an "adult"
