Iroko at a Glance
Material Type Woods
Colors Yellow, Brown
Rarity Quest-Only
Cultural Relevance
  • Hollow Eve material
Required for Alterations Yes

A large hardwood said to contain evil spirits, iroko trees were once thought to have been purely fictional creations referenced in a handful of pre-Imperial folk tales. However, a small number of trees resembling the old stories of the iroko have been found in largely untraveled portions of the barrier areas between the Forest of Night and the rest of the Endrus Forest, and some samples of this newly dubbed iroko wood have made their way to the civilized regions of the Provinces.

Initially pale yellow when cut, iroko darkens to a richer brown over time. Old stories of iroko state that this darkening of the wood was the result of the tree's evil spirit leaving its woody prison to instead take residence within the owners of items made from it. So far, despite both the legends and the newly rediscovered trees' proximity to concentrated, lingering magic of unquestionable corruption, no ill effects have been reported by those carrying items made from iroko, and the smooth, satiny wood has proven useful for both decorative and functional personal items from scabbards to hair combs.

Introduced during the Hollow Eve 410.
