      I have seen those kinds of mushrooms growing in the wild where I live. They are really neat things!

      Just don't eat them or you will turn into a berzerk viking.

      See, now that makes it tempting.

      Amanita muscaria, a.k.a. the Fly Agaric. Found worldwide in temperate woodlands. Ingestion induces very variable effects per individual, often including vomiting, drooling, staggering ... but yes, also rumoured (disputed theory) to have been used by vikings to induce berserker rage; how they controlled the dosage to give a reliable effect is unknown, but further rumoured (more disputed theory) to have been achieved by filtering through the tribal shaman - he ate the mushrooms, then the warriors drank his urine. Are you sure this is tempting?

      No wonder Korgan smells funny.

      Would also explain the pathfinding. Everyone was on these shrooms and pissing for Korgan, so stumbling into lava or a wall trap that instakills them is now understandable.
    • ThacoBell

      Well, I would skip the shaman filtering...
    • Skatan

      .. but that's the best part! As long as you stick to drinking and not eating them afterwards.

      We can just mod the current one to add this ability...

      Actually, there's already an NPC in the Black Pit, who use this ability.

      It sounds pretty easy to mod, just add an item that can be talked to, with an option only for Shamans to make it another item every class can use and when consumed it provides the effects of a Berkserker's rage. I'll look into it. If anyone wants to contribute to this silliness, gimme appropiate descriptions/names and dialogue (im bad at wrting u kno).

    The Death Cap division stands ready. They will soon be joined by the puffballs and the morels. A new era is about to begin... Northern California has fallen already.

      Did you know, Death Caps belong to the same genus, Amanita, as the Fly Agaric ?
