Let There Be Fungus Among'Us 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
Hello Folks,

Made up some Mushrooms for my local game group and thought I'd share.

My thinking was those dark Caverns were just to stark and bland and needed a bit of color. We also figured we would work up a list that defined use's for our Mushlings/Mushrooms so that the more adventurist risk takers would find reward in the form of water, food, healing, extra stats (temporary and permanent), poisons, etc.. etc.. including so bizarre dreams from ingesting and contact with the fun loving fungus.

If you want to help with this idea post what effects you think should be included in my list for unsuspecting parties and future games.

Thanks in advance, John

Wow, these are nice and colorful mushrooms!

First, you should know that Stefan is ok with people "advertizing" here on this forum, especially since DF does not sell mushrooms (yet?).



If you do a mushroom and/or gelatinous cube search on this forum, you will find quite a few custom creations and paints from other DF members such as myself.

What I think I like best for a "mushroom effect" in a fantasy world is to have a couple of mushroom start walking. Perhaps you could paint eyes (and/or sculpt arms and legs) on a few of your mushrooms that would remain hidden in the mushroom forest until an unsuspecting party comes nearby?

bio wizard,
Not to derail the thread, but did you place a picture between paragraphs 2 & 3? I see a big blank gap there (and in another post) and wondered if Safari isn't showing me the entire post.


Keeblerorc,
Bioluminescent mushrooms make good atmosphere, and if you color the light you can give similarly-colored creatures a stealth bonus -- that'll teach your players to rely on bioluminescent mushrooms!

Torch-stools burn as bright as (anyone? anyone?) a torch, for about ten minutes, but should not be cut or uprooted.. If ruptured, they erupt in flame for 1d4HP in a 5' radius. If you are so inclined, the flame-burst can look like a mushroom cloud, but that might be a little too on the nose.

You might also play with a speckled mushroom whose spots are spores that it ejects like shrapnel. Not only are characters injured, they are poisoned/infected.

Finally, put some in a chamber that is unreasonably, inexplicably, dangerously cold, and let the players figure out that the mushrooms are absorbing all of the heat in a certain radius. They might need to be smashed to interrupt the effect, or a pool of burning oil might overwhelm them.

You guys cannot talk mushrooms without having this in your mind:

As for mushroom effect, personally I like the 1st edition Myconid spore effects that Gygax and Lawrence Schick dreamed up :)

Jackattack,

The "blank" space is an embedded eBay link. I don't know why you can't see it, it works fine for me on a PC with Firefox. You can embed an eBay auction on this forum by entering an eBay Item number within an eBay link (click the eBay icon at the top-right window when making a reply to a thread). The other blank space you saw in the "more lava" thread is a 10 meters long fully programmable LED strip I bought cheap on eBay for making a custom light box.

As a side note, since I put the link to Keebleorc's mushrooms on eBay, it sold in minutes! You can see all of Keebleorc's eBay auctions by doing a "dwarven forge" search on eBay. He has mushrooms, jellies, tombs, chests and gelatinous cubes...

In case anyone is interested - I actually have quite a selection of mushrooms available on my site.



You find 50 different sets. These are handcrafted by a local artist. I saw them in an art gallery and asked her to make a large batch for me.

Each one is unique as each is handcrafted in clay, painted with glaze and then burned. This process gives it some nice, pretty natural looking colours.

Edit: Maybe I should add where to find them. For mushroom hunting - go to the European site - go to products and scroll down. I couldn't yet make an own tab for it.

$33 for two mushrooms. Ouch. That is too rich for my blood.

I know a lot of money. Especially after the DF Kickstarter.
But I think, $ 50 for 6 "awakened mushrooms" incl. worldwide shipping is fair.

So my Mushrooms are looking like a better deal one post at a time....LOL

I could see my mom collecting ceramic Mushrooms big time right along side thousands and thousands of dollars worth of other very cool collectables.

Thanks Biowizard for the info on selling/advertising on post as many other terrain forums make you into the antichrist for doing such.

If I can get this Post back on track I am looking for lots of creative uses for the Shroom's in game use. One of my friends suggested this one that I very much like....

The Character eats some of the fungus and has a strange warm fuzzy feeling but no effect otherwise.... game play continues until the character falls into a pit ...is hit with a poison dart of runs into a nasty event.... then wakes up from the Vision/hallucination and game continues just as in his vision until the event that was really bad is about to happen in which case the character gets to choose a different action .... maybe avoiding the 'Event'.

I wish the mushrooms were much smaller. When I'm looking for an encounter with mushrooms I'm thinking they should be much smaller than the PCs? Can you make smaller mushrooms?
