Fungus Man



These small, non-aggressive plant-men appear to be mobile toadstools, with brightly colored caps, stubby arms and thick, trunk-like legs. They do not speak, but they hold up their hands in a sign of peace or supplication.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Spore Cloud (Ex)

Once per round as a standard action, a fungus man can release a cloud of noxious spores. All living creatures within 5 ft. must make a DC 12 Fortitude save or become nauseated for 1d4+1 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based. This is a poison effect, and once a creature successfully saves it is immune to the spore cloud of that particular fungus man for 24 hours.

Organization pod (4–16), branch (17–30), colony (30+, plus a fungus man king)
Treasure incidental

Fungus men are an extremely peaceful and easy-going race of intelligent plants. They are bipedal, in a squat, humanoid fashion. The fungus men are sexless, and reproduce by means of spore clouds. They lack the appendages for fine manipulation of objects, but are quite dexterous in their own way. The fungus men are fiercely loyal to their fungus man king, and attack immediately if it is threatened.
