SPECIAL ABILITIES

Floating Spores (Su)

As a standard action, a sky spore can eject a 15-foot cone of unusual spores from anywhere on its body. The creature ejects this cone automatically each time an opponent scores a critical hit with a piercing or slashing weapon.

Living creatures caught in the cone must succeed on a DC 22 Fortitude save. If a creature fails this saving throw, it becomes buoyant, floating slowly upwards until it drifts with the highest clouds. A creature affected by these spores also gains the paralyzed condition. The save DC is Constitution-based.

ABOUT

Environment any air
Organization solitary, pair, or cloud (3-5)
Treasure none

Sky spores float high in the planet’s atmosphere for centuries, slowly growing as they feed on living creatures that happen too close to them. A creature affected by its spores simply floats helplessly while the clumsy airborne fungus slowly maneuvers until its mouth moves over the helpless prey. The sky spore then digests its dinner over the course of days.

A creature paralyzed, but not eaten, by a sky spore floats on the wind until the paralyzing spores eventually begin to multiply, slowly altering a host’s body until a new sky spore is formed.
