    Even though elves are always pictured as the "better" race(the Sonnenkind)

    I'm under the impression that plant summons accellerate erosion processes. After all, an EXTREMELY slow-moving summon isn't going to be of very much use, and when I look at typical plant summons they're moving at lightning speed. One would imagine the same would be true of plant-based erosion tactics, for instance, the destruction of stone or wood materials: root tendrils enter, expand, enter, expand etc. for the tiniest of cracks, or wrap around and enlarge/twist/squeeze to crush or crumble, or just plain fall like a chopped tree for massive damage. And as for taking down the ent with fire, consider the fact that it was dry as kindling and not yet wet. I hear, in fact, that certain oaks, redwoods and maples are EXTREMELY fire-resistant, and that some plants even NEED fire to germinate seeds.

    Some oak trees need to be in a pool of water to survive, and so are so wet they can't burn until dead.

    Can you ever say anything in this thread without the word "summon"? Anybody would think you were a magician.

    anything can burn if irs hot enough, do you think any wet tree would be ok if you dropped it in water? plant life can break stone through cracks if their are any, but stone is far more dense than any plant its like trying break a bone with straw.

    It wouldn't burn, but consume itself. And seeing as you pointed that anything can burn, well molten iron is not fun to be wearing under a hail of arrows.

    It depends in which story environment. I was talking about Dwarves, and iron was just an example.

    I prefer dwarves over elves, every time.
    But also what predominantly made me make my decision was that I'm a bit sick of the stereotype Elven beauty and such, even though I'm sure it would be relaxing and typical beautiful fantasy.
    I'd just love to see a magnificent, strong dwarven hold with its amazing and impregnable architecture, with jewels encrusted in the stone walls, wooden beams and dwarves hard at work mining or building or getting drunk in large, echoey halls where beer sloshes over the table and floor and where there is merriment and friendly carelessness. :) I find that atmosphere a lot more comfortable than an elven city, where I would feel like some dirt-ridden hobo wandering through crystalline streets, or maybe stepping on some grass and squishing some flowers would grievously offend some mighty elven lord or princess.
    heh...
