Across Soplas and Supercontinent A, there are mushrooms that "bloom" under the light of the full Red Moon when Blue Moon and Green Moon are darkened in their New Moon phases. The names of the mushroom changes from culture to culture - Tormians call it NAMEONE, their Tormian neighbors to the north call it NAMETWO, and across the in Oshrar, it is called NAMETHREE. While no one may agree on the name, the effect is indesputable - if harvested when in "bloom," the mushrooms can be made into the most powerful healing potions, and will keep their potency for longer than other healing potions. However, the potion effects will eventual degrade over time, and if the mushrooms are harvested at any other time, they are best used for purging livestock of gut-parasites.Red Moon Bloom is the most valuable ingredient for powerful healing potions. While other plants and fungi may have lesser results when used to make potions, part of the Bloom's value comes from the once-every-Cycle night when they can be harvested when their caps are "fullest" and appear the most like a blooming flower.
UsesPotions made from these mushrooms can seal off injuries, and in very minor cases heal without leaving a scar. Some tales suggest the potions could be made with other rare ingredients to allow a person to re-grow limbs or restore a person's ability to walk - those tales are often dismissed as a sleazy sales pitch used by charlatans trying to pass themselves off as healers or alchemists for coin and goods.
