The black mushroom is a quest item in The Golem, Shadow of the Storm and Land of the Goblins quests, found in the ruins beneath Uzer and in the Goblin Cave.

When used with a pestle and mortar and a vial in the inventory, black dye is made, which is used to dye several items black.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name, shape, and properties of this fungi are a reference to real-world ink cap mushrooms, Coprinopsis atramentaria, which were historically used for ink or dye. They also tend to be inedible, though not particularly harmful.
  • Prior to the release of Land of the Goblins, the black mushroom had an "Eat" option. When eaten, it had no effects and healed no Hitpoints, but the player received a chatbox message stating "Eugh! It tastes horrible, and stains your fingers black."
