Black mushroom detail

The Black mushroom is a quest item that can be found growing in shaded areas around Uzer and in the Goblin cave. Black mushrooms prefer to grow in shady areas, although they are also known to grow in the Kharidian Desert, an area lacking of shade.

The mushroom can be used with a pestle and mortar while having an empty vial in your inventory. This will result in making Black mushroom ink, which can be used to dye several items black; such as desert robes, Silverlight, black balloons (using dye on origami balloons), Goblin mail, and wizard robes.

It can be eaten, but it will not heal any life points. The message "Eugh! It tastes horrible, and stains your fingers black." appears when eaten. This does not bear any negative side effects. The reason for this may be to give players a hint at the mushroom's intended purpose as a dye.

The name, shape, and properties of this fungus appear to be a reference to real-world ink cap mushrooms (Coprinus sp.) which are fungi that were historically used for ink or dye, hence their name and usage in quests. They also tend to be inedible, though not usually harmful, which is why it heals no life points in game and "tastes horrible".
