The Tree-of-Life is a large tree placed in the center of the New World. It has five giant roots through which it gives life to the New World. Poisoned oil coming up from below the surface is damaging the Tree-of-Life, along with creatures also chewing on the roots. These enemies must be defeated to restore the tree and fix the world. If the tree is not restored to health, eventually every living creature will be killed. Restoring the tree is likely to improve the chances of the world surviving.
