plant race, that when awakened are fully grown. Do not think they are foolish or gullible, for while they are growing beneath the Pale Tree they are in a dream like state learning all they can from those who have awakened before them.
This race may seem pure and innocent, however they are fighting the nightmare that is trying to corrupt there race by infiltrating the dream, many have gone to the nightmares side, many of there loved ones, however they realize that as dangerous as nightmare is so is the dragon, and so they will fight a battle on 2 sides, especially since they can not be corrupted by the dragon, only by nightmare.
They have some pretty interesting racial skills (seed turrets), that could be fairly useful if the mobs didn't almost always destroy them instantly.
