Name - Vixen-Catcher (Bogstain)
Grows - on trees
Description - Vixen-Catcher is a dark blue fungus with golden spore-caps. It gets its name from the story of 'Gawyn and the Vixen'.The king Gawyn was able to tell his queen was carrying on an affair with a nearby duke by the stains she always had on the hems of her dresses. Although she swore she never left the castle, the King knew that a certain mold grew along the path from the castle to the Duke's keep, the same mold that had stained her dresses. Vixen-Catcher leaves dark blue stains on the clothing or skin of anything that touches it. These stains are nearly impossible to get off, and last for several days before fading. If dried and ground, the powder can be spread around or on objects of value. Anything treading near or touching these objects will then have to explain the blue blotches on his or her hands. Also great for pranks. Go to Comment

Name - Smoldermold (Torchmold)
Grows - on living trees/plants
Description - Smoldermold is a large whitish-red mold that is fairly dry and warm to the touch. At night, it gives off a glow not unlike smoldering cinders, sometimes quite bright. It has led many explorers astray, many thinking they have found the campfire of a fellow man. It does not burn, and keeps its heat indefinitely; after it is picked it ceases to glow and lasts for several weeks before cooling down. It is often sewn into packets to warm the hands in frigid regions. The only way to extinguish its heat is to submerge it in water for several hours. Go to Comment

Name - Maidensglove (Haremsmold)
Grows - on rotting plants, trees
Description - Maidensglove is a bright red fungi that is slimy to the touch and smells of bitter spices. If forced down (it tastes terrible), it brings a blush to the cheeks, a fullness to the lips, and a slight red tinge to the eyes. It also makes the user feel confident to excess and lustful. It is sometimes slipped into the tea as an aphrodisiac by those who would seek to seduce someone. Some ladies of the court have developed an addiction to it as well. Go to Comment

Name - Stolen Witch-Brood (Screaming Hagmold)
Grows - on rotting trees and plants
Description - Stolen Witch-Brood is a nondescript brown-green mold with dark brown spots. However, if touched, it hisses and shrieks, burning and scarring the skin with a black web-work. If held for a long time, it can completely disintegrate the flesh surrounding it. Stolen Witch-Brood is sometimes spread onto the prongs of weapons, or pressed onto the flesh during interrogations. It retains its properties when dried and ground, although it loses some potency. Go to Comment

I really like small touches in this submission -- like how you included both a primary (scientific?) and secondary (local/common?) name for each fungi.  Well done!

I love the concept of the Half-Mage, both in terms of magical ability and in terms of training. The tavern itself is very well described and quite inviting. wouldn't mind tossing back a few there myself. Go to Comment

A likeable place and sub but personally, I found it the section abt how Rolan founded the tavern a bit abrupt. And I like the half-mage concept too.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
