Mushroom Master

The characters encounter a wandering (and talking) mushroom. It is an ascended master, and is accompanied by 3d20+10 mushroom/kith hybrids

Hates Trillimites - calls them "Eaters of the Land"

Mushroom power: This plant feeds off the dead, spreading its roots through a corpse as if it were soil. Once it has spread through the entire body, the plant can control the corpse like a giant puppet. Leafy branches poke at random angles from the corpse as the plant slowly consumes it. Once ambulatory, the plant searches for other dead bodies to seed.

Favored Flora: Necromancer: In the social hierarchy of the plant kingdom, the plant-necromancer is a holy figure second only to the plant-cleric. The necromancer’s function is to return dead plants to the soil by burning to ash, the traditional funerary rite of all flora. The necromancer commands the dead to uproot and gather into a pyre on the soil to be enriched. The plant can also use this ability to marshal 1d10 dead trees, shrubs, or vines as guardians. The sight of wooden weapons, construction, and paper infuriates the necromancer. On its turn, the necromancer can make a DC 10 check to command a wood item to shatter or a paper scroll to cast its spell at a target of the plant’s choosing.

The “World-Shroom” is said to be the oldest living being on the Purple Planet. Perhaps it will grant the PCs a boon for a favor…

From Old Campaign

Living Fungus-Cacti The PCs encounter a group of walking cactus-like succulents. The creatures have low intelligence, but are capable of communication through changes in color. They are protected by sharp spines (as javelins).

Injured Death Orm The PCs find an injured (but seemingly dead) death orm

Demarax Demarax bewildered about greenstone shards; wants to eat them, and they're addictive to him like sugar. Gets cranky after they wear off.
