ECOLOGY

Environment any air
Organization solitary, pair, or cloud (3–5)

Sky spores float high in their planet’s atmosphere for centuries, slowly growing as they feed on living creatures that happen too close to them. A creature affected by its spores simply floats helplessly while the clumsy airborne fungus slowly maneuvers until its mouth moves over the helpless prey. The sky spore then digests its dinner over the course of days.

A creature paralyzed, but not eaten, by a sky spore floats on the wind until the paralyzing spores eventually begin to multiply, slowly altering a host’s body until a new sky spore is formed. Inorganic remains and equipment can sometimes be found in the core of sky spores.
