A palely glowing parasitic fungus that grows on anthropoids and similar creatures with chitinous exoskeletons, it is slain by sunlight. When the venom of creatures infested with the Fungus of Yoth is introduced to the bloodstream it acts as a powerful narcotic and induces vivid, euphoric hallucinations of bizarre blue and green vistas of a lifeless alien world, much of it composed of numberless tiers of complex, ornate architecture. Strange glyphs can be viewed within some recesses of the aforementioned architecture and some sorcerers have claimed that they divined certain potent alien incantations from these glyphs. Occasionally a user of Yoth venom will have the sensation of being viewed and hunted by a vague malevolent force.
