Here's a trio of ruin dwelling fun-guys to mess with your mutants.

Black Mold

Mutating from common Stachybotrys chartarum, this black gooey mass can be found in ruin corridors and rooms. It is typically 10’ to 30’ in diameter.

Coming into contact with a Black Mold releases an addictive substance. Anyone who releases this substance must make a save vs poison or become addicted to the toxin. Failure to make contact with a Black Mold once per day results in withdrawal symptoms that act as a Class 6 Poison that acts for each day without contact.

Black Mold is only damaged by fire and other energy attacks. If a black mold is attacked with other weapons, it splits into more individuals of reduced mass. Every successful attack creates a smaller mold that has 2 HD.

Mutations: Toxic Weapon, Narcotic

Fission Yeast is a mutated strain of Schizosaccharomyces pombe that produces radiation. A fully grown fission yeast generates a Class 5 Radiation field for 50' around it. Immune to all attacks except electrical-based ones, Fission Yeast are known to split into smaller yeasts when attacked with weapons. Each of these smaller yeasts generate a Class 2 Radiation field for 25' around them.

Gold Fungus is a mutant fungus that can grow to a diameter of up to 10 feet, and a thickness of about 6 inches. It resembles gold sheeting. A gold fungus strikes like a snake, slamming opponents with its body. A successful strike allows the gold fungus to cling to an opponent. When clinging to an opponent, the gold fungus will use its Possession power to try and take over the victim. Gold Fungus is immune to the effects of fire-based and cold-based attacks. They take normal damage from electrical-based attacks and weapons.

Mutations: Possession
