mushroom, or toadstool, is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. As a survival resource in the wild, normal mushrooms are much like cabbage in that they are a fat-burning food with few calories. Therefore, average mushrooms are considered comfort food or garnishes rather than main sources of food. However, this general rule changes in the Underdark as many types of mushrooms are either much larger in size or have special properties enjoyed by those who consume them.

Refer to the lovely table below created by Andy M. during a past Extra Life event.

Underdark Mushroom Table by Andy M.

I created two templates for use during our gaming. The templates are wooden and called “Wooden Sun” decorative pieces. I bought them at our local Pat Catan’s Craft Center. I can use these for forest templates or in the case of a recent gaming session, a template for mushrooms!

It’s always nice to have some homemade scatter terrain available for use in gaming sessions.
