The Golden Shroom

These shrooms once grew in abundance in The Weeping Woods of Tedepris. These shrooms glow a bright, vibrant yellow and release small white spores wich make the shroom look like it is shining golden in colour. These fungi were everywhere, infecting the forest, but they had a powerful, astronomical healing purposes. It is said in legend that they can cure death itself.   These shrooms were harvested to extinction a few years after their properties were discovered.  

We were doing our regular harvest run. "Dammit!" I had exclaimed, "These shrooms are like weeds! They're infecting the rest of our resources!" We didn't trust any shrooms after we found out how those Blue Lantern Shrooms did. My foreiging partner had picked some, I had asked what the hell he was doing. "Well, if these things have a use, then we should find it instead of wasting it." I had nodded as we walked over to our Trodders and put out the shroom. This Trodder had a broken leg and was being used only for food and resource testing as they are sacred to us and cannot be killed.   The Trodder ate the shroom, to our surprise, and his veins started glowing a glorious gold. We panicked thinking we were about to kill a Trodder which is punishable by death, but instead, he got up and walked on all four legs. We ran back to our main resource group and delivered the news. We had harvested as many of them as we could, selling them at ridiculously high prices, but our greed was our downfall, the next season, there were no goden shrooms, they were just...gone
