Magical Properties



The black mushroom is almost entirely edible and is considered quite tasty by most races. It grows in small clusters and can be cultivated to some extent. Many dishes in Khoras use the black mushroom as a spice or main ingredient. A larger version of the black mushroom, the greater sorbus, grows deeper underground and is a staple in the diet of many subterranean creatures.
