Purple Moss (Hazard, Plant [Fungus])
Hazard, Plant (fungus)
This plant is a distant cousin of yellow mold. It feeds on moisture, so any area in which it grows is always extremely dry. Purple moss emits a sweet smell to a range of 10 feet that has the same effect as a sleep spell (DC 12 Fortitude save). Victims that fall asleep are quickly covered by the moss. It takes 1 full round to cover a creature of Diminutive or smaller size and one additional round for each size larger than Diminutive. A creature covered by purple moss begins to suffocate. Slain victims are digested in 1d2 hours by acidic secretions from the moss. Purple moss
can be destroyed by fire.
