Luzori Mushroom

By:

An influential fungus among us!

Full Description

The Luzori mushroom is bland and unobtrusive, but at the same time, the most culturally important plant. The Luzori Grows on the Lover’s Walls, the mountain range that stands on Tarran’s south and Gaeioa’s north sides. It resembles an egg, colored an almost white brown, though it bruises blue-green. In the summer, the Luzori open slightly, forming “chimneys” that spew spores at a near constant rate.

The Luzori can be made into a form of paper, common throughout the twin continents. It dries a distinct white-lilac, and is valued for it’s strength, even though thin. Rumor states that Luzori-paper documents have been found on Ishan, though definitive evidence has yet to reveal itself.

Lozi, a spicy, midnight blue drink is made from the mushroom during the winter by “juicing” the remaining stalks. Luzori can also be made into a bland, bread, the same color as the mushroom, called Lyeson. Both have proved invaluable to travelers, and the as such, the mushroom has become the symbol of Stranger’s Guild.

Perhaps the most important derivitave, is Luzeroint. Luzeroint is a latex-like flourescent, which is often used for decoration. When exposed to any amount ultraviolet ranges of light, luzeroint glows brighter than ten torches. The color of this luminescence is variable, changing with different materials applied to it. Luzeroint is black when not glowing, though because it is more likely to be used or seen in a glowing state, the glow color is associated with it. For instance, luzeroint designed to glow red is refered to as “Red Luzeroint,” even when not glowing.

Additional Information

The Knights of Grace and Mercy cover their armor in Green luzeroint,  with their shields, helmets, and weapons covered in white.

Interesting. I never thought a mushroom could have so many uses. I like it and might use it just as something to serve up in Inns and Taverns. But, what type of materials are applied to Luzeroint to make it glow different colors?

love the detail, despite the nice and short post. I hate to sound repetitive and unimaginative (my previous comments on other subs), but my favorite things are those that I can immediately incorporate into my world. Short and sweet, but full of flavor (figuratively speaking) This shroom is one such thing!

Could use some fleshing out, especially the luzeroint. Love the name, BTW!

This is a very simple concept that makes it all the better. I like how you have a group who use this to coat themselves in battle. I could actually see something like this in my world setting as being plausible.

Good job. I took off .5 because it was, in effect, too short. I would like more detail about it.

Mesnoi

       By: Murometz

The food that eats you back.

Creatures of nightmare, the thankfully rare Mesnoi have unique form and attributes. Only one Mesnoi at a time will ever be "encountered".

In appearance, a Mesnoi resembles a walnut-sized chunk of freshly-roasted red meat from some uncertain yet familiar, edible animal. The insidious creature camouflages itself quite appropriately whenever it can, by slowly making its way amidst feast tables and trays of roasted meats.

Once eaten by the unsuspecting, the Mesnoi sinks down to the stomach, reforming if chewed, and begins to lap up the gastric fluids, digestive juices, and bile that it craves, like a sponge.

The Mesnoi carrier will experience mild to severe stomach pains during this time.

After a few hours of this (this is the only time that the Mesnoi can be purged with magic, or other mundane means), the Mesnoi transforms into its true form inside its victim, that of a miniature, once more walnut-sized, pot-bellied, devil-horned, snake-tailed imp. This horrid little creature then begins to chew and eat its way out of the victim from the inside out with its tiny, razor-sharp teeth, like a rat forced to do so via torture.

The victim almost always dies a slow, agonizing death. That much is certain. The devilish imp then exits its victim and begins its seventy two hour existence of mischief and malevolence, until it once more turns back into a hunk of roasted meat with the movement capabilities of a snail.
