Version 0.25: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
You have been transformed into a sentient fungus. You are highly evasive and can release spores to cause confusion when attacking in melee, but are unable to move when hostile creatures are present. You are resistant to poison and immune to negative energy.

Any equipped weapons and armour are melded, and you are unable to cast spells. The effectiveness of your melee attacks while in this form is based on experience level instead of on Unarmed Combat skill.

Fungus form is a bad form that can be inflicted on the player by the Polymorph spell, turning you into a creature similar to a wandering mushroom.

Pros

  • The player gains 12 AC.
  • The player's size is set to Tiny: good evasion modifier.
  • The player gains torment resistance and rN+++.
  • The player gains poison resistance.

Cons

  • The player can't move while there are hostile monsters in line of sight.
  • The player can't cast spells.
  • All equipment is melded except for jewellery.
