Plants manage to thrive in the Shadowfell despite the pervasive gloom. Deprived of adequate sunlight, those that need more sustenance turn to other sources. Some feed on the flesh and blood of living creatures, while others require less tangible nourishment, such as life energy. Most of these sinister plants are ambulatory and possess a hint of sentience. Since the Shadowfell offers much less food than the mortal world, shadow plants have crept into the that realm from the echo plane. They linger near shadow crossings, graveyards, necropolises, and battlefields, where they wait for their next meal to approach.
