Madarch Clwyf is a species of mushroom found in the Eskus Region in The Mire of Manter, a large area of marshland often uninhabited. The mushroom has no magical properties but does have a herbal effect that has been used for hallucinogenic poisons. There is no other place in Arrasgoth that these mushrooms can be found but they can be grown at home under extreme care. The mushrooms are used often by the alchemists of Banshaw Edge and have been known to get into the hands of the thieves guild, Moon.
Madarch Clwyf are normally fluorescent in colour, ranging from green, blue and orange. They have round, bulbous heads and look like common mushrooms save for their bright colours. Their stalk is normally jet black though there are the rare occasions that they have pure white stalks. It is unclear what causes this.
