I went to the black shroud to explore and gather and came across this peculiar tree at (27, 15).
It had glowing gathering activity sparks on it, so I went in to bring my hatchet upon it, then suddenly it emitted some kind of strange light effect. I have no idea what that is about, or if anyone's come across it before.
Are the elementals trying to tell us something? Or have I just contracted the Wood sin? :o
