palm frond

This is a leaf from a palm tree. You've never seen any wrist or knuckle trees, but somehow the palm tree makes perfect sense. You can't necessarily read it, but I'm sure you can find some other use for it. And at least now you won't need any undersea plants, because with fronds like these, who needs anemones?

Uses

Notes

  • Is not dropped until after Hugo's Weaving Manual is acquired.
    • However, a palm frond can be dropped along with the Manual.
  • Can be used to make things with Hugo's Weaving Manual (or simply through "use multiple").

References

  • The phrase in the item description "because with fronds like these, who needs anemones?" is a play on the saying "With friends like these, who needs enemies?" The same joke was used in the film Finding Nemo.
  • Being unable to "read" the palm leaf refers to two common divination practices, namely tasseography (the reading of tea leaves) and chiromancy (the reading of palms).
  • The "when made" message refers to the poem Marmion by Walter Scott. Canto VI. Stanza 17 of the poem includes the lines, "Oh! what a tangled web we weave / When first we practice to deceive!" This poem is often misquoted as "What a wicked web we weave."
