[New Magic Item] Planetary Spores

Planetary Spores


Koram threw the small bags on the table. Everybody grabbed one.

“Where to?” Chalk asked.

“We need to do something for the Everliving King of the Grey Ziggurat,” Koram said.

Opening the bags everyone withdrew a handful of dried mushrooms, looked around, then ate them.

Knat looked around, puzzled.

“What is troubling you?” the Scholar of Wexos asked his cousin.

“You all ate blue tinged mushrooms. Mine were gree….” and she was gone. The world faded for all of them. Stars blurred around the four men.

Chalk shook his head as he stood. Knat was lost somewhere in the universe. Valance was reciting prayers to the Spider God. The priest sighed with relief as small arachnids scuttled towards him. Koram drew his Crystal Sword and threw open the door. A small contingent of people that seemed half prickly plant and half human approached them cautiously.

“Where is this?” Chalk asked one of the creatures.

The plant people did not understand the speech of the alien creature. One of them used a strange metal device to write in the dirt.


“We have a way out of here?” Chalk asked Koram.

“After we serve the Everliving King,” the fighter answered.

Most every habitable planet has some form of fungal life, and among those that do, each has a variety of fungal spore tuned to that particular planet’s vibrations. Inter-planetary travelers in the know trade these spores at various universal crossroads to help themselves and others experience the universe at large.

Benefit: Those who consume the fungus from another planet slowly fade out of existence on one of the Million Spheres and appear moments later on another. Those who eat the fungal offerings of their own planet’s particular spore merely hallucinate for 1d6+4 hours. Because of the ramifications of inter-planetary travel these mushrooms should always be used wisely.

Usable by: Anyone.

    “…Fungus that takes you on a cosmic journey…”

    Thanks, man. Doesn’t any good fungus take you on a cosmic journey? 🙂

    Well sometimes it makes for a nice vegan gravy or hot and sour soup instead 😉

    I like a nice gravy on my vegans, I must say.

  5. Blair says:

    I find the gravy doesn’t cover up the taste of soy and Dr. Bronner’s soap.

    Mmmm… Vegans.

    Getting the tofu cooking smell out of the air is often a problem. I have to aim a fan at an open window. But the vegans do serve a purpose.
