In the campaign I made them from though, they come from a place where almost all plants have limited mobility of a sort, if only twitching twigs, as well as eyes or other visual organs.
The question wasn't if they are edible, but if they taste like truffles
. Truffles are extremely rare and valuable, sometimes fetching over $1,000 per pound. A human-sized truffle (trufflefolk) could be worth over a 100 grand (assuming they weigh roughly the same amount as humans)! I could certainly imagine unscrupulous hunters poaching trufflefolk to sell to cooks.
Yes, I think about food way too much.
Twitching plants with eyes!? What kind of campaign is this, and where did you get the idea for it?
