Magic mushrooms - magic detection devices. Usual types of magic mushrooms are: general magic, sorcery and necromancy. The readings are on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 100, where a reading of n+10 represents 10 times more ambient radiation than a reading of n. (80 is kind of a danger threshhold for human life; beyond 80 mutations and other adverse radiation effects will manifest with prolonged exposure.)

Magic potions - tend to go bad after awhile, especially when kept in a proper adventuring container, i.e. a vinskin. Potions that have gone bad may fail to function properly and/or cause imbibers to get sick and vomit. This is particularly catastrophic if the potion was a levitate potion and the imbiber had left the ground already.
At one time, it was not common knowledge how to discern different kinds of potions. Players quaffed potions more or less at random. Sometimes they got the desired result - sometimes other things happened. One time, the players poured a "heal" down a guys's throat and the back of his head melted. "Oops, acid." Now they know - "orange potion should be a heal."
Magic Radiation - some areas are unusually high in background magical radiation. This radiation may be high enough to interfere with magical regeneration, cause mutations, hallucinations and even death. It is usually measured by using magic mushrooms, although detect magic gives a general idea of field strength.
Magos - see Magos Hamilcar.

Apparently Mowcrot tried to follow her through, but appeared on EOW at the arboreal portal instead. It is not known if Maroczy survives. There is a theory that she may have transmigrated into Keiko, or been Keiko, which would mean she's pretty thoroughly dead by now - splatted by Mowcrot over Persand.

Melanchthon Morning Herald [07-26-10038] by Haryard Appleby. "Officials are still investigating a grisly manifestation of murder and mayhem in northeast Melanchthon. The no-longer extant house at number 44, Street-of-the-Mines, was apparently the site of a bloody fight amongst friends catalyzed by inebriation and despair. The house burned to the ground following an argument which broke out between the current residents, a pair of brothers who labored for Malvolio Construction, and three of their friends who had gathered for an evening of gambling and relaxation. Witnesses reported cries of "cheating" and personal insults previous to the sound of clashing blades. All five of the men had served in the army and, unhappily, had quick recourse to their swords. During the confusion, a lamp was upset and the house ignited. One of the tenants lived and is being kept in strict seclusion at Mary's awaiting questioning and possible charges. Police expressed dismay that the commotion served as cover for unscrupulous thieves to loot the house and disturb whatever evidence may have remained. As a speaker for the town as a whole, the Morning Herald is deeply sorrowed at the senseless violence brought on by hotheadedness tempered by alcohol and wishes again to voice its support for Thomas Birney, the only wardship candidate promising to back far-reaching alcohol prohibition within Melanchthon." This incident may be connected with the Order of the Ring.
