Sung Wood

Sung Wood are items produced by the art and magic of Wood Shaping most commonly known as Tree-Singing. The Song of Shaping are rituals within the Elven society performed by master Tree-Singers. Some of the greatest Elven bows of legendary heroes start of as Sung Wood bows crafted by Master Elven Tree-Singers. While most tree sung items are no larger than a quarterstaff or a longbow, rumors speak of Master Tree-Singers sharing in a chorus to craft feats worthy of an age like the size of a war galley.

  This allows Tree-Singers to craft wooden objects of pure perfection and amazing quality. However the use of this ritual is most common with healthy living trees and is much like a request or plea to the spirit of the tree to willingly part with a portion of itself on behalf of the Tree-Singer.
  Other variations of this spell exist beyond the Elven culture and not all of them are intertwined with tradition and the agreement with the spirit of the tree.
Wood Shape - D&D 5th Edition


Wood Shape (Sung Wood)

4-level Transmutation

Ritual - does not require spell slot, takes 10 minutes longer
Casting Time: 1 Action
Range/Area: Touch
Components: V, S, M *
Duration: Instantaneous
You touch a wooden object of Large size or smaller or a section of wood like a tree no more than 10 feet in any dimension and form it into any shape that suits your purpose. The object created must be one solid piece with no moving parts. So, for example, you could shape a branch into a quarterstaff, bucket or an idol. You would also make a small passage through a wall, as long as the wall is less than 5 feet thick.
  The quality and intricacy of the item shaped depends on the skill, imagination and will of the caster. With only intent and little or no skill you can achieve an average item available in shops and stores of the world. The quality of the final object made by the spell is commensurate with the quality of the source wood. So a branch from an oak tree produces an oak quarterstaff. You may also shape items to a higher degree of craftsmanship, with skill, training or proficiency in artisan's tools used to craft such objects. Creatures or magic items can't be created or transmuted by this spell however items shaped in this manner are often used to imbue them with powerful enchantments.

    Sung Wonders


    Moon's Breath


    The Calan

      The framework and hull of the Calan is one solid piece of wood. It is speculated the ship was formed using the ancient elven art of tree-singing and layered with true dweamors of a forgotten age. Although the ship can be damaged, it “heals” those injuries over time and it returns to its original state. The Sungwood construction is very durable, being able to withstand the punishments of war and battle. The Calan radiates no magic from usual divination or magesight, while it is possible more powerful dweamors could pierce its veil.
