Flora in Faerun after the Eclipse remains mostly unchaged due to the powers of the Everbloom gods who have kept the natural balance in their terretories bio-diverse and rich in plantlife. In Neo-Faerun however most of their terretories resemble barren badlands with little to no natural vegitation, most of the natural growth come in the form of fungus and parasitical plants, making the little life that can be found in the badlands of Neo Faerun hostile and alien. In the regions of Thay and Lolth's Dominion you may find perversions of the same flora that once existed before the Eclipse hit, the plantlife might be more twisted and cruel to mirror the inhabitants of the land and their necrotic visage. 

HerbalismEdit

If you wish to include herbalism into your game, make sure that you understand the implications:

Pros:

  1. Herbs offer great variation of items and effects that players can use.
  2. Advanced players can find creative ways to use herbs to their advantage.
  3. More options for problem solution that compensate for the lack of magical items in 5th edition.
  4. Great for more survival focused, open ended campaigns.
  5. The Ranger's Natural Explorer feature, takes extra advantage from herbology.

Cons:

  1. More work for the DM, the complexety of herbalism means more things for the DM to keep track of.
  2. Logistically heavy, collecting herbs and noting their uses and locations might be time-consuming and boring for some players.
  3. Time consuming, might divert attention from a story focused campaign.
  4. Some herbs might be unbalanced and compromise the integrety of a tightly run campaign.

whether or not you find that your campaign would benefit from the addition to herbs, make sure to inform your players of your decision.

Some of the herbs contained in this guide have very powerful game effects, and have the potential to severely unbalance a campaign. The GM should ensure that they check each of the herbs thoroughly and modify or disallow it, if they feel it will unbalance their campaign. As always, the GM is the final arbiter in their campaign. What they say goes, no matter what this guide says. Remember that.
