Monday Monsters: Mycolids
(Imperial Gazetteer Bonus Material)

Mycolids are sentient mushroom folks that live in the dark alongside the ghouls and their sprawling empire. You will find some mycolids detailed within the Imperial Gazetteer… but here’s a few extra to up the excitement.

The pale brown puff of spores caught us unaware, and soon, we were fighting amongst ourselves, mad with rage and thoughtless as animals. The mycolids destroy your mind with poison and turn your hand against your dearest friends.

And before we could regain our senses and run for our lives, the cavern was shaking and the air was churning as the most massive mushroom we ever saw staggered forward into combat. The crazed beast flailed at anything that moved, quickly destroying our caravan and scattering the few survivors.

  1. Does the power Guiding Thoughts mean once a mushroom has combat advantage it always has it until dead or the encounter ends? Or does it mean it never grants CA while in the aura?

    Really like Intrusive Thoughts. That’s a nasty power!

    I want to order print versions of the Iron and Imperial Gazetteers at the same time. I do hope the Iron G. print version is available soon so I can do so.
