This fungus grows in small clusters that erupt from the ground in misshapen bloated mushrooms. Its deep red color and the fact that it glistens wetly creates the impression that the land is bleeding. It has a foul odor, like something rotting.
If this fungus is ingested raw (no preparation is needed), it greatly boosts an animals natural resistance to poisons. This effect lasts for up to a day. One full fungus must be consumed. The flavor is very bitter.
This root is also known as Lands Wound, but this name is only popular among herbalists and alchemists.
