| A short-lived species of fungus typically found on or around decaying organic matter.
“But the Seneschal gathered the toadstool fly-bane.”
Toadstools are harmless, fragile plants which only appear when the player worships Fedhas Madash. If a follower uses their Fungal Bloom ability in line of sight of a corpse, toadstools will grow on it and nearby (depending on the size of the corpse), instantly turning the corpse into a skeleton. The toadstools then die after some time has passed.
Tips & Tricks
- This is the best way to gain piety for Fedhas worshippers. If you follow Fedhas, pray for every corpse you don't plan on eating. The more exotic necromantic uses of corpses are forbidden by Fedhas anyway.
- You can use Fedhas' Evolution ability to turn toadstools into wandering mushrooms. This can be especially effective if you evolve a toadstool adjacent to a monster.
- Alternatively, the fact that monsters can't move through them allows them to serve as roadblocks, slowing a monster's pursuit. But remember that walking through a toadstool will take 50% longer for you than walking over open spaces; this means you might get hit while retreating through the toadstools.
Prior to 0.12, toadstools would appear regardless of your character's religion. As corpses rotted, they would occasionally generate toadstools independent of your actions.
