Glowcrust is a fungal infection that can affect a variety of body parts. The infection sprouts an icy outcrop, which acts as an additional body part that will grow a luminous hoarshroom every 300-500 turns. The infection has a luminous glow, acting as a light source with a slightly smaller radius than a torch.

A fungal infection takes up the infected body slot, preventing items from being equipped to that slot.

Each glowcrust infection has the following effects on the player:

Additionally, glowcrust has a hidden effect of reducing your natural regeneration to 85% of its previous value while you are above ground during the day.[1] This does not stack with multiple glowcrust infections.
