A

Arctic Moss

Arctic Moss: A silvery-grey moss with a short, thick fern-like texture, often found clinging to trees or soil near areas with some moisture. Can be foraged in the wild and eaten raw, or shredded into a salad.

B

Basal Moss

Basal Moss: Grey-green in color, this short-tufted moss is routinely sold for its medicinal properties and may also be foraged wild. When consumed, basal moss can repair minor bruising, cuts, and scrapes to the eyes, chest, and abdominal area. It grows primarily in temperate climates on the bark of deciduous trees.

Black Hook Mushroom

Black Hook Mushroom: Shallow dark grey cap with black hook-like flourishes spaced out along the edge with dark gills. Sought after for its showy caps.

Black Trafel Mushroom

Black Trafel Mushroom : A black frilly-edged cap bearing soft white spots identifies this delicious mushroom, treasured for soups, stews, and an aside to game meats.

Blue Trafel Mushroom

Blue Trafel Mushroom: A blue-grey frilly-capped mushroom with cream spots. Not to be confused with its cousin, the black trafel mushroom.

Bolmara: A verdigris-hued lichen that favors huge outcroppings of granite and quartz composites. When ground in sufficient quantity, and steeped in alcohol, the essence can be blended with other ingredients to create a healing potion, helpful for major nerve system damage.

D

Daggerstalk Mushroom: Pointed stalks with blade-shaped caps, the mushroom is silvery in hue

E

Ephlox Moss

Ephlox Moss: The olive green-hued spiky moss is routinely sold for its medicinal properties and may also be foraged wild. Stills the blood flowing from open wounds upon the limbs and repairing the broken bones within. Grows best in a cold, wet environment with ample sunlight, and tends to grow on tree trunks or beside streams.

F

Flathead Mushroom: Very large and wide beige mushroom with a flat cap. Three spots of deep brown dot the crown. Edible, with a very meaty flavor, sometimes savored as the main part of a meal. 

M

Mushroom (glowing): Found in sea tunnels, their glow illuminates the passages.

Mushroom (gnollish): Frequently seen at the loading area outside the grocer in the Landing.

R

Red Lichen: Dark to bright red in hue, this lichen is a symbiotic combination of algae and fungus, often found on rocks or crawling along the bark of fir trees. Prefers colder climates and higher elevations.

Red Trafel Mushroom: A scarlet frilly-capped mushroom with blood-red spots. Can be hard to find when its coloration blends in with autumnal foliage.

Red Vornalite Mushroom : A ruby-hued round cap mushroom, usually found growing in clusters around the trunks of oak trees.

S

Soft White Mushroom: A mottled white egg-shaped cap often coated with a chalky residue.

Spotted Hearth Mushroom : Heart-shaped caps, usually pink-orange in color, featuring bright yellow spots. 

Striped Heart Mushroom: Heart-shaped caps, dark yellow-orange in color, featuring bright pink striations that spiral out from the center of the cap.

T

Toadstool (glowing): Though a member of the mushroom family, generally inedible, possibly poisonous. Both a white and silver and a crimson and silver variety exists.

Trollear Mushroom: Ear-shaped brown mushroom caps dotted with ivory warts seeping a brackish green ooze.

W

White Hook Mushroom: Shallow ghost white cap with dark grey hook-like flourishes spaced out along the edge.

Withered Black Mushroom: Rippled and wrinkled deep black mushroom caps with matching gills and stems.

Wolifrew Lichen

Wolifrew Lichen: A yellow-brown fungus routinely sold for its medicinal properties and may also be foraged wild. Most likely to be found in cold, wet caves, but sometimes grows in secluded outdoor areas as well that receive little light.
