Wilf pleads to his brother for some help with a culinary miscalculation.
I hope this letter finds you well. Currently I write to you in a state of dire digestive distress. We recently visited a nearby forest on a quest in search of some lost hunters. The good news is we found most of them unharmed!
More good news, there are a great many interesting forms of fungus in the forest! You may remember I have a certain affinity for certain types of mushrooms - or rather, the side effects of consuming certain types of fungus. Or anything.
I had set upon my own side mission of finding an exciting new source of mushroom for my other... trips. I found a number of interesting potential new species, but the first one I tried has had me stuck at home staying as close as possible to a privy. It has been *days* since I was able to leave my bed chambers, and I've been eating the only blandest soups imaginable ever since.
Dear brother, I hoped that I may implore upon you to send any remedies you may imagine. I have not had the chance to ask my confederates for assistance in this matter, and I would prefer that they simply thought I was ill. I fear that if I survive this illness, I may as well die of embarrassment if they should find out the truth. Oh, what might they think!
We find ourselves elbow to elbow with some very substantial people in this city, and I would hate for my reputation to be tattered so early in my career here. Might you be able to help?
Any remedy, be it culinary, magical, medical, religious, or disciplinary, I am all ears! I promise I have been praying for peace since the first rumbles of disagreement from my stomach.
I must say, while my constitution has suffered immensely from this damned fungus, my spirit has been greatly lifted! It may be asking too much, but if we could find a way to remove the unpleasant side effects yet keep the beneficial ones, I would be more than grateful!
You're always in my thoughts, and I hope life is treating you well!
P.S. I have attached a drawing of the offending fungus, in case you need to find a sample. Do not treat it raw! Trust me!
