These “mushroom-men” are zombie-like humans that have been infected by a terrible fungal virus that eats the victim from the inside out and takes over control of the motor functions. The virus causes the skin to turn rubbery and porous, and develops a bark-like skin to protect itself.

In combat, if they are hit and damage is caused, they will release a cloud of spores into the air and any person within 10’ of the Kinoko-Bushi must make a save versus poison or they will be infected with the virus. The virus takes 1d6 days to convert the victim into a walking “mushroom-man”, they can be cured if a Cure Disease spell is cast upon the victim before the virus converts them.

  1. Reminds me of the Mantago movie from 1963, based partly on the William Hope Hodgson story "The Voice in the Night". Neat.
