1001 Fantastic Fungi

Watermarked PDF

No more "Um, it's a mushroom, it's got a top and a bottom and it's, um, white I guess..."; with 1001 Fantastic Fungi, you'll be ready with an instant fungus any time you need one. Here are hundreds of fanciful mushrooms (along with stinkhorns, puffballs, and even weirder things) completely described and ready to drop into your campaign.

1001 Fantastic Fungi

The trek through the caverns of the deep darkness has been long and arduous. The adventurers' guide, Squag, a wizened little creature who seems to be half gnome and half goblin and only communicates with hisses and growls, has been indefatigable, urging them on across difficult terrain, through mazes of twisty little passages, across bottomless gorges, and even along a subterranean river. Somewhere ahead of them is the means to restore their comrade to human form..

GM: On the far side of this cavern, Squag has scampered to a dark opening. He is waving you forward, and seems to be very excited.

Party leader: We'll move up carefully, looking for any signs of an ambush.

Warrior: When I look away from the lantern light, do I see anything in what is dark to these humans?

GM: You see nothing; all seems to be quiet.

Mage: Too quiet. We're supposed to be going somewhere we can get a potion for Jarmak. That has to be some kind of underground trading post, or even city. Fellows, I don't like this.

Party leader: We follow Squag, very carefully.

GM: You see light ahead of you. Beyond where Squag is crouching, you see a cavern lit by a faint glow that appears to be from phosphorescent fungi coating the walls. It is clear this is where that mushroom-like smell you've detected a few times is coming from. Squag is jumping up and down and pointing into the room.

Party leader: Creeping up to where Squag is, what do I see?

GM: Mushrooms. Lots of mushrooms. Mushrooms in every imaginable size, shape, and color. They are anywhere from knee high to twice your height. Some are in clumps, some are solitary, and there look to be hundreds of them.

Squag: (hissing, for the first time producing almost human speech) Youssss fffriend eeeeeetss mussssshhhrooommmsssss

From within a bucket carried by the mage comes a despairing "ribbit!"

Welcome to the "1001 Things" collections

Need a few strange mushrooms for a dungeon? Or a few hundred? This is where 1001 Fantastic Fungi comes in handy. Here are hundreds of fanciful mushrooms (along with stinkhorns, puffballs, and even weirder things) completely described and ready to drop into your campaign. They can be as mundane or magical as you want them.

Of course, strange fungi are certainly not the province of fantasy alone. They might be found choking the passageway into lost ruins where an adventuring archaeologist's goal awaits, or filling the cargo bay of a crashed alien spacecraft, or growing in the basement of a house reputed to be haunted.

And here is something to think about: aside from the giant sizes, some of the color combinations, and of course some of the effects, not only are fungi like these found in the real world, but some of the real ones are too strange and complicated to put in this list. Yes, real fungi can be even weirder than these! You can't go wrong throwing some of these at your adventurers any time you need to confuse, delay, or just poison them.

No more "Um, it's a mushroom, it's got a top and a bottom and it's, um, white I guess..."; with 1001 Fantastic Fungi to choose from, you'll be ready with an instant fungus any time you need one.

Look for more things in the 1001 Things series, with convenient, ready-to-use items for your roleplaying games.

Not expecting a mycological textbook at the cost, but I did expect something more than a simple list of randomized descriptions of fungi, which could have been made by a variety of free online random generators. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
