A race of motile sentient fungus, Mulg are slouched humanoid beings, mottled dark gray and black, with a skin of slimy, tattered sheets and folds of fungal material. Their eyes are recessed, glistening black pits and their mouths and noses are simple horizontal slits. They amanate a strong odor of wet, moldy, rotting vegetable matter.
The Mulg dwell in dim, moist environments where they practice inscrutable rites. Their way are alien and mostly incomprehensible to Humans, but it is known that many of them practice magic using spores produced by their bodies, the act of which has acquired the name 'Sporecery.' 10% of Mulg are ' Sporecerers,' of levels 2-7.

  1. Yes! You've quenched my thirst for cactoids with massive brain pans.

  2. I put a cactus on the table in front of my GM screen at our game on Saturday. :)

  3. Ah, the dreaded sporecery!
    Now, Blair coined the term and I merely ran with it.
    I have to say that Blair game me several laughs as I wrote up the spells of sporecery.

  4. game=gave, drat my spelling at 3.30 am!

  5. Good stuff, more sporecery please !

  6. Shouldn't this be in the Referee's Resources page?

    Thankfully I am an honest player (and DM) and didn't look at these menaces.

  7. I have added the tag, 'sporecery' to my blog for pertinent posts for those looking deeper into this fungal magic.

  8. It takes a special kind of awesome to introduce a race of cactus people...and then mutate the she hell out of them.
