“Suddenly earth opened its jaws, tongues of molten rock lashed forth, to entangle and engulf the herbalist. Skin almost aflame, hair curling, breathing a pain, and eyes drying, Li Mingdao saw Emberfern.”

Skjald Vinotis



Li Mingdao was a renowned herbalist, preferring to search volcanic highlands, he was known for his fearless exploration of the treacherous terrain. Legend has it that Li Mingdao discovered the Emberfern while seeking shelter from a sudden eruption. Observing the fern’s ability to withstand the intense heat, he quickly gathered some and returned to his shop. There he experimented with different parts. Realizing its potential for medicinal use, he developed various products that could harness its unique properties.

Li Mingdao’s discovery of the Emberfern led to a breakthrough in herbal medicine. His knowledge has been passed on through generations, and Emberfern is a symbol of resilience in the face of adversity.

Emberfern is a hardy perennial fern with large fronds in a distinctive fiery red coloration.

Fronds: Arranged in a symmetrical pattern, they are attached to the stem by short stalks. They can reach up to six feet in length, and have a hairless feathery foliage in Venetian Red, Falu Red, and Crimson, with their unique serrated margin resembling flames.

Stem: Long, non-woody, slender, and has nodes and internodes that support the fronds.

Root: The deep and extensively branched fibrous root system is well-adapted to the rocky volcanic soil. The roots are spread widely, anchoring it firmly in the rocky volcanic soil, with a shallow depth to capture nutrients from the surface.

Emberferns thrive in the extreme conditions of volcanic highlands. They are adapted to the high temperatures, mineral-rich soils, and occasional lava flows that characterize this environment.

Simply find the fern, pluck its fronds, and dry them in the sun to preserve their fiery color and properties. They must be stored in airtight containers to protect them from moisture and maintain their potency, until they are refined. Refinement should be done within 18 weeks, as they generally begin to lose their potency within that time.

When applied or consumed, they create a sensation of invigoration and temporarily increase the body’s tolerance to high temperatures. They are popular among travelers and adventurers exploring volcanic regions.

The paste is used to soothe burns and reduce inflammation. It can also be used to create heat-absorbing poultices, or for treating feverish conditions.

The potions is used to increase resistance to heat and fatigue.

While Emberfern products can provide resistance to heat, they should not be used as a substitute for proper protection in extremely hot environments. Prolonged exposure to extreme heat can still be dangerous, and users should take necessary precautions.
