Treasure incidental

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.

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.

Carved into the stump of a huge toadstool are petroglyphs detailing the legend of Magopyccic, a colossal sentient fungus whose spores are said to have spread throughout the cosmos, devouring worlds and granting their desiccated husks to its fungoid offspring. Searching the stump reveals a secret compartment within the mouth of the Magopyccic, where the fungus folk gather their treasures.

Treasure

potion of bull’s strength, scroll of plant growth, scroll of stoneskin, staff of swarming insects, and 20 rare moonstone gems worth 100 gp each.
