In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the dark tree is a plant creature. It resembles a cypress tree, but in its bark is a fiendish, evil-looking face, and two of its branches are gnarled, wooded, spindly arms.
The dark tree dwells in warm jungles and waits for intelligent creatures to wander into its midst. It attacks in whatever way it can with its two arm-branches, and once its prey is dead, it drinks their blood.
Dark trees are neutral evil in alignment.
