Description[edit]

A yellow musk creeper is a large plant that sprays its pollen to entrance living creatures, and then bores its tendrils into their brains to implant its seeds. Creatures killed in such a manner become what are known as yellow musk zombies, which serve the plant as guardians until they move off to find a new place to become a new yellow musk creeper.
