See the Ruins and Riddles Prompt for backstory regarding this prompt and Futo!

With the help of local Skire residents, a magical artifact from some long forgotten ruins was rediscovered. This artifact is incredibly special and holds a pupose hidden by time. A researched named Futo has sent the artifact to the hands of someone they know can get it delivered to a specific location.

No one expected this location to be an empty and barren field, but do not fret! Futo seems confident that when the artifact is placed in the field, something amazing will happen! And indeed, it does. When the artifact is placed on a shrine in the middle of the field, the earth begins to rumble and plants start to grow at an alarming rate. Higher and higher until the barren field has now been replaced with a massive garden filled with enormous exotic plants, their stems so high that you seem to be in a giant forest of strange flora.

Who knows what wonders you will see here as you make your way out?


Draw/Write your Skire Character exploring the Garden of Wonders!

What does your character do when they see some of these new plants?
--------
Do any of the plants seem carnivorous? How does your character handle this?
--------
Does your character seem lost in the Garden and need to spend a few nights there? Or do they know just how to get out?
--------
Do they find any new kinds of fruits or vegetables growing here?
--------
How does your character get their bearings in this new environment? Do they climb to the top of the plants, or find some other way to navigate?
--------
Does your character find this new garden to be spooky, or enchanting?

Please don’t feel limited by the ideas above as it is just a general idea to help you think of what to create!

A: Yes, as long as this is done so before the event ends. We will not count anything submitted after the event has ended.
