Against the Wilderness
This edible fruit resembles an large raspberry or blackberry, but is a vibrant blood red in color. Along the stems grow three inch thorns, which in turn are covered in smaller thorns. These thorns give the bush and berry its name.
Fangberries are prized by many, because in addition to the normal uses of pastries and wine, fangberries are totally inert in potions, and are therefore often used to improve the taste of such potions as water breathing (they remove the fishy taste) and bear’s endurance (removes the taste of wet animal hair). While this does make identifying them by taste more difficult, brewers who use fangberries usually do more repeat business than those who do not.
