In the late evening and the wee hours of the Egyptian morning, mushroom spawns will pop up in many locations, during which time they are free for the taking. These spawns will vanish a few in-game hours after appearing.
There are over two dozen varieties of mushroom. All are useful in Cooking, and some have other uses beyond eating. Found growing in the wild between 2:00 am and 6:00 am game time. Note this does not mean that anywhere between 2-6 that you will see it. Most have a specific time they appear. So if you stand at a known spawn point at 2am, they likely will not be there. If a known spawn times is 3:44am then thats when you see them appear.
All mushrooms are mildly poisonous, but cooking removes the toxins. The Test of the Darkest Night allows Egyptians to train their bodies to safely eat raw mushrooms, building their Constitution in the process.
They are also used in Botanical Identification tuition costs.
New mushrooms were announced by Wahim in the story line: "Furthermore, mushrooms unknown in one age can appear in another - witness the recent discovery of Nile Fire, Falcon Bait, and other mushrooms that grow during the daytime - no mention of these is made in our history books!"
Folks, since Rogarian has came out with a nice new Shroomdar, I will no longer be supporting my temporary site (http://sharpnetwork.net/atitd/mushrooms) to post your mushrooms. I will submit all the posting over to the atitd.org Shroomdar database. Please bookmark and post all future sightings to the below links. This will be better in the long run for the community, as a permanent solution. Thanks! ~Cegaiel 2/19/2010
