The Aalen Blooms

A red plume arose over the Aalen Forest, spreading out a choking spore cloud across the twisted wood. The people of Duiran hastened to hew the stalks that appeared from the ground, but found too late that the flowers released the disease that the Albedi had warned them would follow the sludge. It is yet unknown as to what these spores will do, but for now, they are seemingly a hazard to all who enter the Aalen.
