Mushtown is a small town that serves as an adventurer's starting point in the world of Vesteria.

Overview

After the horse-drawn carriage got ambushed and destroyed by a handful of Baby Shrooms, Shrooms, Elder Shrooms, and Boss Chad in A New Adventure, the player ends up in Mushtown, which begins the start of the game.

The town is secluded behind a thick and enormous town wall, which looms over and protects its inhabitants. Within these walls lie tents of various colors, patches of trees, and other forms of wildlife of various sizes. Chickens also roam around the little town, with thin patches of water running through, forcing the creation of simplistic bridges of wooden planks.

At night, fireflies swarm around the player lighting up their path ahead. However, it is still very hard to see at night.

Sublocations

Mushroom Research Base

The Mushroom Research base is a sublocation of Mushtown. Players can access this area by following the path to Mushroom Forest, and then along the way, take a separate steeper path on the left marked by growing mushrooms. Inside, there is a merchant that uses Golden Mushrooms as its main currency. This is also where players start the Shroompocalypse minigame.

Scruff Residence

The Scruff Residence is where the Scruff family lives, with the owner of the house being Scruff himself.

Mushtown Center

The Mushtown Center is the main hotspot of Mushtown; it's what puts the "town" in "Mushtown." The entire sublocation is surrounded by thick, stone walls presumably to provide protection against outside threats. Various houses and buildings are built within the canopy of the trees and mushrooms bringing the center to life. There is also a merchant named Lela that offers equipment for starting players.

Mushtown Inn

The Mushtown Inn, owned by Innkeeper Edith, is located on the outskirts of Mushtown. Players can visit this location to initiate the Innkeeper’s Son quest by talking to Edith.

Fisherman’s Dock

The Fisherman’s Dock is a small pond located behind the Mushtown Inn. One side consists of a fishing dock that faces the pond.

Mushtown Outskirts

Beyond the gates of the town lay the outskirts of Mushtown, inhabited by various NPCs. The area is pampered with an abundance of flora and fauna. Gigantic fungi and trees encircle the player's view almost constantly. The outskirts have a hillier terrain which eventually blends into a large circle of a hill which encompasses the map, acting as its wall. The NPC Scruff and his house, as well as the beginning spawn for the game, are located on the outskirts through a small shaft.

Trivia

  • Mushtown has been revamped numerous times. A December 2018 update moved the spawn point outside Mushtown, while an August 2019 update changed the layout of Mushtown entirely. In January 2020, Mushtown's layout was changed again, removing some excess space.
  • Despite being called a "Party Quest" Shroompocalypse is actually a Dungeon and not a Quest.
