Various mushrooms in a forest.

Mushrooms are a type of vegetation and wild food which frequently populate temperate, green biomes. They can typically be found by foraging in forests and grassy plains.

All mushrooms fall under the vegetable food category. Every mushroom eaten raw will fill 80 sat. However, certain types of mushrooms are poisonous, and will damage characters when consumed.

Mushrooms can be harvested by breaking them with a hand or knife. Over time, the mushroom will regenerate. Mushrooms cannot be re-planted or farmed.

Types of mushrooms

Mushrooms can grow either on the ground, or on tree bark. There are currently a total of 37 mushrooms in the game.
