Mushrooms

Mushroom is a type of fungus frequently found growing on the trees and in caves.

History

5th century BCE

During the Peloponnesian War, mushrooms were occasionally used by herbalists in their concoctions. On the island of Seriphos, mushrooms were combined with wine to make an alleged love potion,[1] while on Lesbos, a scholar wished to combine specific mushrooms from the so-called Mushroom Cave with hellebore and Cone Snail bile to create what she claimed to be a cure for petrification.[2]

9th century

During the Heptarchy of Great Britain, mushrooms were a common sight with some even being edible. Upon arriving in England, the Viking Eivor would find and consume some; including Blackish Purple Russula to replenish stamina and Winter Chantrelle for vigor. Destroying Angel, another type of mushroom were poisonous with a hallucinogenic effect.[3]

18th century

During her career as an Assassin, Aveline de Grandpré scoured the Louisiana Bayou for mushrooms, amassing a vast collection that proved useful in curing people suffering from Bayou Fever. The mushrooms could only be administered while the victim was unconscious.[4]

Behind the scenes

In Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, the achievement "Mushroom Queen" is earned by collecting all the mushrooms, while the "Bayou Fever" achievement is earned by curing all of the fever's afflicted victims. In the later remastered version of the game, the "Mushroom Queen" achievement became part of the "Collector" achievement, which is unlocked after all mushrooms, diary pages, alligator eggs and Mayan statuettes had been obtained.
