    The trickiest thing about this mushrooms is to remember from which side of the mushroom you should bite at the moment.

    There are mushrooms and Farmer Maggot mushrooms.

    Few know that when Yavanna sung into existence the two great trees, Laurelin of golden countenance and Telperion of silver, she also created the fungi Apogille and Lunsilin, appearing as rings of button mushrooms scattered among their roots.

    From the very beginning, Laurelin lived in harmony with Apogille, having caps of fiery red, while Telperion lived in harmony with Lunsilin, having caps of pale blue. Each tree would, upon occasion, shed leaves, and these would fall to the ground about their trunks. In turn, the fungi would slowly decompose and recycle these leaves, returning their nutrients to the soil. In this way, the trees remained forever nourished with Nienna's tears providing the water necessary for both trees and their fungi.

    Small beetles, attracted to the voluminous detritus, began to feed on the enchanted leaves and fungi. In time, these insects would grow large and strange, burrowing deep into the earth to become the dangerous Gredbyg. Not long after the beetles arrived, so to did small wood spiders, seeking their prey beneath the layers of decomposing leaves. One such spider, gorging upon the now magically infused beetles, grew larger than the rest, and such was her hunger that she even feasted upon the red button of Apogille and the blue buttons of Lunsillin. This only compounded her growth, twisting her into a dreadful predator filled with a malevolent, waxing intelligence. So cunning was she that, realizing her size rendered her vulnerable in the light of the two trees, with no quarter to hide her great bulk, that she fled for darker lairs. In time, this terrible spider would take the name Ungoliant, but few know her true origin.

    Eventually, Morgoth turned his baleful attention to the two trees and enlisted a now even larger and more twisted Ungoliant to destroy them. The terrible spider, weaned upon the beetles and mushrooms at the base of the two trees, hungered for their taste and so agreed to return and feast. It is well known what happened next, that the two trees were drained of all life by the voracious spider, but few know the fate of Apogille and Lunsillin.

    While Ungoliant could feast upon the sap of the two trees and gorge upon the mushroom caps scattered about their roots, she could not dig deep into the soil and consume the fungi, and so they lived on, forgotten by all, even the Valar. They reappeared almost immediately, consuming the woody remains of the fallen trees. With their symbiotic partners destroyed, Apogille and Lunsillin brought forth their buttons and thence spread their spores, casting them upon the winds to grow far and wide. Most such spores, no longer infused with the magic of the two trees and Nienna's tears, became the common fungi and mushrooms found in forests and fields. However, the deeply buried filaments of Apogille and Lunsillin, still infused with light and magic, slowly spread like a great web, eventually crossing the great sea and reaching Middle Earth.

    Over time, many creatures would feast upon the buttons of Apogille and Lunsillin, changing them into things miraculous and bizarre, and the most knowledgeable of sages believe many strange creatures have their origins thusly. The strange fungi affected no only animals but also men, and some believe it was enchanted mushrooms that shrunk one kin of men into the diminutive and reclusive hobbits.

    To this very day, within the bounds of the Shire in the fields of Farmer Maggot, one may still find the far cast filiments of Apogille and Lunsillin pushing forth buttons of fiery red and pale blue. Even now they retain some small magic of the two trees and Nienna's tears and this is what makes them so special.

    All I can say is there really is something to that mushroom field.
    Having, or needing to track those dawgs, escaping them constantly to search out the
    shroom treasure, for me, is just the right mix. Honestly fun, and even thrilling each time.
    There it is )

    What's so special about those mushrooms? It's what everyone is trying to find out. Excellent advertising, Farmer Maggot.

    This is probably the most awesome first post on these forums, possibly on any forums.
