Choice Text and Results

Chase it

(if not etheric)

SewerGraffiti.jpg

You run through the sewers, chasing after shadows. After what feels like hours, you slow down, satisfied it was nothing but a strange reflection. Maybe some swamp gas or something.

Pretty good workout, though.



You've gained 10 energy of mask.jpg Unbeliever.

You've earned 2 XP in Strength

You've earned 2 XP in Will

(If etheric and you've killed a mushroom scout before)

Fight Mushroom Scout?

(if etheric and you've not killed a mushroom scout today?)

MushroomDude.jpg

After a brisk run, you catch up with the strange figure. It's some strange mushroom, several feet tall and apparently possessing enough intelligence to carry a spear around.

It seems ready to go on the offensive, but holds back for now.

Jump it

You lunge at the strange mushroom figure. It grabs a spear and prepares to defend itself.

Fight Mushroom Scout

Try to trade

(if you have no protein bars)

(Please add text)

(if you have at least one protein bar)

The creature points at one of your protein bars, then holds out an interesting looking mushroom in one hand and a fistful of normal mushrooms in the other. Its spear sits there forgotten on the ground.

Take the one

It hands you the mushroom in exchange for your protein bar and wanders off, bouncing happily.



You found: destroying angel or warty toadstool or shaman staff or delicious puffball

Take the fistful

The strange creature nods its massive cap and gives you a fistful of mushrooms in exchange for the protein bar. It doesn't have a mouth to smile or even really eyes to glitter, but the gills of its cap ripple in what you assume is happiness.



You found: 4-6 of edible mushroom, large mushroom, red toadstool

Ask for the spear

He seems to consider your offer carefully, then hands you his spear in exchange. He nods his gigantic cap and melts into the cave wall.

Which strikes you as a little strange. Unlike the giant mushroom guy you just traded a protein bar to.



You found: Spear25.jpg fungus spear

Leap to the offensive

You lunge at the strange mushroom figure. It grabs a spear and prepares to defend itself.

Fight Mushroom Scout

Keep your protein bar

Walk away

Leave it be

Walk away?

Investigate here

You inspect the patch. It looks like that figure left two small piles of spores, one white and one red, near a giant heap of garbage. A few mushrooms already grow in a rough circle.

Plant the red ones

You carefully scatter some of red spores in the damp garbage. It's very calming, like a toxic Zen garden.



You've earned 3 XP in Will

You can harvest these the next day. See Mushroom Picking

Plant the white ones

You spread some of the white spores over the mound of rotting waste. Aside from the stench, it's actually extremely pleasant and restful.



You regain 20-30 hit points!

You can harvest these the next day. See Mushroom Picking

Plant your sparkling spores

You sow some sparkling spores into the moist earth. It looks pretty good by the time you're done, but you've inhaled some spores along the way.

You've gained 10 energy of Toxic Spores.

Inspect the circle

(if you haven't planted any spores)

You poke the mushrooms for a bit and they don't seem to do anything interesting, so you pocket a few. There aren't a lot, but you can't argue with free.



You found: 3 of edible mushroom, large mushroom, red toadstool, (warty toadstool?)

(if you haven't planted any spores, but you have Ocean Sight active? (all the time or some?) (or is only Ocean Eyes required?)

SewerFairy.jpg

You find a small green mote, like one of those fairies you captured, dancing at the edge of the mushrooms. You don't quite manage to snag this one, but gather up the mushrooms near where it was dancing.



You found: 4-5? of edible mushroom, large mushroom, red toadstool, warty toadstool
or 3-4 of the above and 1 of: black spores, destroying angel
or 4? of: black spores, destroying angel

//With fae sight active?

You find a small green light, one of your fairies, bobbing up and down near a few mushrooms near the edge. It doesn't seem to mind, so you grab those.
