This is a crazily awesome idea, and I'd be glad to have a chance to use it at some point. My main reason for commenting, however, is to point out that Watership Down is by Richard Adams, not Douglas Adams. Let me know when it's fixed, and I'll get rid of my nitpicking comment :). Go to Comment
You find a patch of edible funghi. They taste well and all, no ill effects. UNLESS you consume some beverage, even 3 (three) days after eating it. Then you become really sick with pains, vomiting, all the fancy stuff. As a gift or good meal, it could be a cruel joke or to make sure the heroes spend their time focused on the mission. And the fine soup you had in the inn yesterday could have some in.
(Inspired through a real-world fungus. Was really used to cure alcoholism.)
