Cordyceps Rules Expansion - P2E



A Pathfinder Second Edition-compatible, setting-agnostic Cordyceps Rules Expansion to help you bring the strange and terrifying story of biologically induced fungal zombie-ism into your campaigns!

With this expansion, you will have all the tools you need to incorporate a new mutated form of the infamous  Ophiocordyceps fungus (known as the “zombie-ant fungus”) that infects humanoids and controls and manipulates their behavior.

Inside, you will find rules for:

  • Implementing the progressive condition that affects mental state and physical appearance and results in the manifestation of a “cordyceps zombie.”
  • Incorporating the four stages of the cordyceps zombie condition.
  • Incorporating unique phases of the fungus into your campaign, including a slime mold-like plasmodium fungal life phase that can creep along in hospitable environments to find new victims, or underground fungal tendrils that allow the fungus to exist as an almost-sentient environmental entity, communicating over long distances with other cordyceps zombies.
  • Using infectious fungal spores that may be encountered in specific environments, may be expelled by some of the fungal life phases, or may be launched as ranged attacks by the most advanced stage cordyceps zombie!
  • Implementing wound location variant rules that affect the progression and onset of the cordyceps fungal disease.
  • A new Stage I Fungal Infected Cordyceps Zombie Template that you can use to rapidly convert NPCs (or unfortunate PCs!) into Stage I cordyceps zombies.

Also included is a Creature Conspectus providing complete statistics for four types of humanoid cordyceps zombies – Stage I, Stage II, Stage III, and Stage IV.

Because this expansion is setting-agnostic, it can be easily incorporated into your Pathfinder Second Edition-compatible fantasy setting, modern setting, or science fiction/science fantasy setting campaign.

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.
