Swordtip mushrooms are named for their appearance. They are crowned by a tall, thin cap which is tapered and silvery grey. Overall, the mushroom greatly resembles the tip of a sword blade pointing straight up from the ground.
The swordtip mushroom is edible and has a delicate flavor. It is used in many cultures to flavor sauces, meats and salads. Raw swordtips are bitter. They need to be boiled to bring out the flavor. The swordtip mushroom grows in much of Qeshir and Ithria.
Swordtip mushrooms grow in clusters along the banks of rivers and lakes of Ithria. They tend to grow nestled in nooks and crannies, such as in the shadows of a boulder or a river edge tree. This sometimes makes them difficult to find. They also grow near waterfalls and in shallow caves, where there is moisture in the air.
