The meandering sludge of a Fungal Pool is an unlikely hybrid of either Brown or Yellow Mold with Ochre Jelly. These mushroom-sprouting cesspools can be found in any land environment from jungle to desert, mountaintop to dungeonkeep.

These growths possess just enough awareness to envelope unsuspecting prey from either behind or underneath, temporarily halving its victim's hit points until he reaches 2 or less. At this point the victim is STUNNED and dissolved within a day. A simple CURE DISEASE will revive the victim, with full hit point loss restored within a day.

Killing these masses of disease is not a task easily accomplished. Each of its roughly 100 mushrooms carries half the effects of a Gas Spore (MM1), and 2-8 of these mushrooms will pop open with each physical blow. FIRE and COLD-based attacks will work, but at 1/4 their effect. LIGHTNING carries no effect to the lifeform at all.
