“…”
[Message can only be read by a Class-4 telepath or higher due to possible contamination with Zombex]

Name – Zombex
Primary Transmission Method – Telepathic Contact
Primary Effect – Shuts down higher mental functions

Telepathy was once thought to be nothing but a myth or story. The ability to read others minds was always thought to be a hoax. Once humanity entered to the galactic stage of their development and made contact with other races it was shown to be true. Humanity was simply a “late bloomer” with regards to telepathy.

Billions of chickens used to be found on Earth, and when humanity spread to the stars and started taking livestock with them, the chicken was one of them.

A Chunk of Fantasy 1.07 – Chain Mail Helmet of the Druid [Armour]

“Druids are, well I think they are odd folk, all that being at one with nature, speaking to animals and all that. It’s downright weird. But, they are not bad people. They do a lot of good work, even if others don’t understand them. Speaking of not understanding, you remember old Philbert the blacksmith? Well, one of those druids helped save his family from that herd of wild beasts last month. So in return, he made a helmet for the druid that lost his hat. Now everyone told him that druids don’t use chainmail, but this one took the gift gladly. A few days later he was seen wearing it. Apparently, he had got a friend to enchant it and make it work with nature-based powers somehow…”

Effect: Seeds are explosive and very fragile

The Explosive Dandelion named the Terran-based flower known as Taraxacum officinale or common dandelion, is a small yellow petaled flower, that grows in almost any terrain where there are appropriate soil and nutrients. A casual glance at the flower will show that it has a slight orange tint to the end of the petals, but there almost nothing else the average person can do to tell the difference between these dangerous plants and the regular variety.

The ED, as you might expect not a natural plant...
