The fungal intelligence behind the kinoko-kozu
The Sovereign Mold is an enormous fungal intelligence of unknown capacity. It includes large yellow sporangia and long, tendril-like purple sporangia; huge floating spore housings vaguely in the form of huge floating eyes with tentacles extending from the main body; networks of hardened dark yellow rhizomes that look like a rough lattice covering the floor; mounds of decomposing fungal material; and even more obscure fungal structures. Though it takes many forms, there is a sense that they are each connected to the others.
Whatever the spores do when inhaled, they have by this point thoroughly colonized the heroes’ bodies.
