Creature Guide: Fungals

By on 23 July 2012

Creature Guide: FungalsExploring Ertha’s Realm just got a whole lot slimier.

Fungals are one of the strangest creatures ever seen in the Hearthlands. Widely regarded as crop stealing pests, they are usually attacked on sight. Most citizens believe they are a primitive and barbaric race. While it is certainly true they lack any form of technology and complex society, they are a fascinating race, and one not to be underestimated when aroused.

This supplement explores fungal culture. Sections on anatomy, social structure, culture, and warfare explain the essence of the fungal race, while stats are provided for every known type of fungal, as well as a plethora of mundane fungi.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
