Luzori Mushroom


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?

Now this is one humungus fungus. Very good.

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.

Man-Eating Grapes

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes.

The grapes literally eat their victims from the inside out, via cell death, melting and destroying the organs in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, of the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
