brooding rosepuff

Rose gills tense and release, tense and release, tense and release, as if drawing breath into the puffer's stem. With each exhalation it belches a cloud of indigo spores like motes of twilight. They flutter back to the cap and congeal into an rose plasma.


A brooding rosepuff is a type of fungus which spreads spores that can transmit a certain type of fungal infection. The type of infection caused by brooding rosepuffs is randomly determined for each newly created world.

When a player or creature that has less than 250 reputation with the fungi faction enters any of the 8 tiles surrounding a brooding rosepuff, the puff will spew its infectious spores into the air. The spores dissipate in the same way that a gas dissipates. In a wide open area, the spores will generally linger in the air for around 60-100 turns, while in an enclosed area, they will linger for longer. Any creature or player that is in the same tile as fungal spores must make a toughness save each turn (difficulty 10) or become afflicted with itchy skin, which eventually leads to the fungal infection after 2-3 days.[1] Drinking Honey.pnghoney or eating Yuckwheat stem.pngyuckwheat stems does not help in fighting off itchy skin.
