Enerngent

Written by KalebClint

The Enerngent bushes can most often be found in the cold regions near the south, they are incredibly rare and therefore very valuable. Scholars have been searching for years how to plant knew ones and have only recently discovered that the thorns, which cover the outside, are also the seeds. We have no idea how they reproduce but scholars are looking into it.  
What Scholars have theorized
  Scholars believe that long ago their was a large amount of Enerngent bushes and that people had actually used the Exordium Energy that is somehow generated from it. (See to the side) Now Scholars hope to grow thousands of these plants and use the Exordium energy to create marvelous things.   Scholars also find it strange how the name has to do with its use, This plant has been around for centuries so scholars have a theory that a long time ago people knew about this plant and used it often. What scholars find strange though is how all that information was lost and hope that maybe their will be some way to retrieve it. But for now they are continuing their research.   As recently found the Enerngent flowers plant produces about thirty Joules of Exordium Energy each year, and the plant is incredibly rare, scholars think It is close to extiction. And now becomes of this recent discovery scholars are doing everything they can to get hold of the plant for preservation and testing.  
More about the plant
  Scholars are baffled as to how the plant generates the energy, it seems to have very little difference between rose bushes, all except for the large blue flowers hiding inside. Protected by the incredibly sharp thorns and what seems like hundreds of leaves. Supposedly these flowers spend the entire year collecting all types of energy that comes close, one the day with all seven moons full and in alignment is when The flowers release The Exordium Energy. Scholars are searching for a way to trick the flowers into releasing the energy sooner but have made no leeway in their research.  
Origin
  There are only a couple villages with these plants growing near them and it turns out that these villages had known about the plant producing Exordium Energy for decades. The Village with most of this information is named the village of Ghatanel, this village held a couple books on the subject of the plant. Ghatanel's people believe that the Plant was a gift from their gods centuries ago and treat it with great respect and love. The books held very little information about Exordium Energy and was mainly about the plants connection to Ghatanel's religion. Scholars doubt any of this has any truth to it but they're looking for any explanation.
Exordium Energy Is Produced by the plant
  It has recently been proved that the Enerngent flowers somehow absorbs any types of energy and produces a strange blue like substance every year. Several Scholars have tested on this substance and discovered it is a type of Energy called Exordium Energy, and very little is known about it. Although it has recently been discovered by a new scholar named Charlette Narlan Frohften that it can transform into vast amounts of other Energy, a few Joules of exordium energy can create around hundreds of other types. Though this is not much energy it is somehow equivalent to a bit over half a millions joules of energy! Scholars are not sure what to make of this. They theorize that the energy created from Exordium energy is raw and new, never having been turned into other types of energies. They believe that this may have something to do with it. They are also not certain if it can turn into any type of energy but they have tested on both thermal and electrical so far.  
looks
  The Enerngent plant is about the size of a rosebush with thorns covering the outside, it leaves are small, yet their is a large number of them per bush. Large blue flowers twice the size of your hand hid inside the bushes during the day but somehow rise to the top at night.  
Uses
  Other then releasing Exordium energy the Enerngent plant has no other uses, the flowers die and wilt the moment they are cut off and the thorns have no use. except for pranks against your worst enemies of course.  
Average Lifespan
This is unknown but scholars guess at least a century if not more.  
Average size
The average size of the bush is about the same size of a car seat, The flowers are about twice the size of your hand and the leaves are smaller then your finger.

This is an interesting mysterious plant :D Nice article!   I'm wondering how the plants do to reproduce since the flowers are hidden away most of the time. Unless this is part of the mystery of why they create that energy?   " IT CAN TRANSFORM INTO VAST AMOUNTS OF OTHER ENERGY, ONE JOULE OF EXORDIUM ENERGY CAN CREATE HUNDREDS OF ANY OTHER." What types of other energies do you mean here? I think giving some example would be useful. Electricity? Thermal energy?   " EXCEPT FOR PRANKS AGAINST YOUT WORST ENEMIES OF COURSE." XD   Just a small note: was it voluntarily that you wrote the article all in capital letters? That makes it rather hard to read. You also have a couple of typos that slipped into the article you could maybe try to copy and paste the text in Word to see where they are.

Thanks for the feedback! This is one of my first ever articles so I'm not sure why its all capitals but I'll look into it. The secret to how the plants reproduce is indeed part of the mystery but I'll quickly add some examples to what Exordium energy can turn into. Thanks!

Glad my comment was helpful! Great work for one of your first articles :D   You might have used a keyboard shortkey for a bbcode to make everything in capitals? Unless you've tried to change the css? If you don't find a solution, people on the WA discord will probably be able to help!

Quite a cool and interesting plant! It sound quite useful and mysterious with its ability to provide energy. I wonder though what the Exordium energy is, perhaps you can add this in a tooltip or something like that :)   I see that the capital letter issue that I saw when I first saw this article is fixed :D Nice read!

Thanks! I quickly wrote up an article about Exordium energy, which maybe I should have done first since its kind of important. I put the link in the first mentions of Exordium Energy.

Oh nice addition! :) It does give some extra information ideed, thanks!

Oooh, this just shouts 'plant scientists go crazy investigating then suddenly boom, entire lab gone, massive tragedy'. I like it!

Thanks! I'm writing a novel and in it this did actually kind of blow up in a lab indeed causing a massive tragedy. :)

Hey Kaleb!   Congrats on publishing one of your first ever articles! I like that you're trying to tie your fictional energy to real world units. I did note that you have a scaling factor of 1 J Exordium = 100*# J other energy. This does imply that there are different 'units' of energy in your world which may be problematic if you're trying to provide a detailed/mathy comparison of magic in your world. Also, for reference, it takes ~4 J to heat a 1 mL of water (1 g) 1 degree C. So even 30 J = 3000 J isn't actually that much energy. I'm not saying this to be critical or say your worldbuilding is wrong by the way. I hope an outside perspective can help you craft a bigger, better world as you grow your craft. Keep it up!

Thanks a lot for the feedback! I was honestly making this up as I went and didn't do a whole ton of research. Exordium energy is a raw and powerful energy, It basically makes all the other types of energy. The energy in that world has been constantly changed from one type too another slowly making it weaker. When say Electrical Energy is created from Exordium energy it is at its highest from of power. It is new and purely Electrical Energy and just one hundred joules would be almost enough for a lightning strike. I will try and make this a bit clearer in the article, thanks for noticing this!

Hmm, I understand what you're saying and that's a perfectly valid way to world build. I can freely admit it's my background in physics that keeps me from accepting it freely but don't let me deter you from your goals or design!
