The Order of Leviathan
Yggdrasil is an immense plant intelligence rooted in the center of the earth. It’s roots sink into the solid core, while It’s innumerable major trunks swim up through the liquid core. From there It grows tendrils up to the surface to form secondary trees that produce seed pods. These seeds, when deployed in vast quantities, are capable of sprouting and forming vast areas of growth in a matter of hours, overwhelming and consuming anything in their path.
Most of the year Yggdrasil is relatively passive, but in the spring time it undergoes a period of ravenously aggressive growth. Thousands of seeds spread from its forests, transforming great swaths of land into a thick tangle of plant matter. These periods grow longer and more vicious with each passing year. Yggdrasil has been developing new plant minions to aid in overtaking developed areas. These new trees operate as a distributed intelligence, growing warriors as needed to fight inhabitants. New forms are constantly being discovered. Many fear that soon Yggdrasil’s need for yearly slumber will become unnecessary and it will remain at a high level of activity year-round.
The Treants are Yggdrasil’s children, and they constantly patrol and protect his forests, as well as assisting in the battles of the spring.
