A - Acid Fungi (new monster)

Approximately one-foot high red-brown fungoids, covered with thick mucus. They always occur in larger clusters (probably because one organism develops about dozen mushrooms). They are unable to move, but can “spit” the stream of viscous, corrosive slime on unaware victim if it passes to close (1-3 HP loss each turn until mucus is not removed in some way, also acid has similar effect to the Grey Ooze’s special ability).

No. appearing: 1-10
Armor Class: 9
Move in Inches: -
Hit Dice: 2+1
% in Lair: Nil
Treasure: Nil


  1. Like Shriekers, but cause damage! I love it.

    I can totally see this in an old-school dungeon.

  2. Cool monster. What are they like in Terminal Space? Can they get their spores into someone's suit? Just think of some PC finding a spacesuit filled with these things just waiting to spread into the ventilation ducts of some ship or habitat...

  3. Sounds really good - they can be really PITA on a spaceship :D

  4. Every fungus in-game is a good fungus, and they are rather underrepresented in fictional worlds it seems to me. This is fearsome!

  5. Wait for the J letter - there will be another one! :D

  6. I love it - I never would have thought of putting acid and fungus together. Good work.
