A type of large mushroom usually found in caves or particularly dark, damp portions of The Boundless Weald. These fungi are carnivorous, feeding largely on dead and rotted meat. Unlike other scavengers, however, they are not content to take a passive role in finding this carrion. A Violet Fungus is a motile creature, moving slowly on the ground with a cluster of vines somewhat resembling purple tentacles. Each one of these tendrils is coated in a virulent venom which causes flesh to rot and decay almost instantly upon exposure.
Members of the Yellow Lodge sometimes capture Violet Fungi and use them as guardians, placing them at key points throughout the cult’s important holdings to deter intruders.
