Special Abilities

Explosive Puffball (Ex) A mythic fungus leshy’s puffballs erupt with a loud pop, deafening the target if it fails its saving throw against the leshy’s spores. In addition, once per minute as a full-round action a fungus leshy can expel a hyper-inflated puffball that acts as a sound burst (DC 14 Fortitude partial) centered on the target in addition to its usual effects. If this explosive puffball misses its target, determine where it lands as a thrown splash weapon; the sound burst is instead centered on that location.

Greensight (Ex) As described in the New Universal Monster Rules in the Mythic Monsters chapter of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Mythic Adventures.

Puffball (Ex) A fungus leshy can spit a puffball as a standard action. If it hits, this attack deals 1 point of damage (this damage is not modified by Strength) and affects the target struck (but not adjacent targets) with the fungus leshy’s spores. The puffball has a range increment of 20 feet.

Spores (Ex) A fungus leshy is riddled with molds and spores. Anytime a fungus leshy takes damage, a cloud of spores bursts from its body, forcing all adjacent creatures to make a DC 14 Fortitude save or have their vision reduced to 10 feet for 1 minute. Spending a full-round action to wash one’s eyes with water ends this effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Verdant Burst (Ex) When slain, a mythic fungus leshy explodes in a burst of fertile energies. All plant creatures within 30 feet heal 1d8+2 points of damage and fungi quickly infest the area. If in underground, swamp, forest, or jungle terrain, the area is treated as difficult terrain for 24 hours and then subsides to a normal level of fungal growth.


Growing a mythic fungus leshy
A mythic fungus leshy can be grown amid the compost of a mythic treant’s grove, in dens of mythic mold deep underground, or in eerie hillocks at the heart of dense swamplands. Only a mythic creature can create a mythic fungus leshy, expending one use of mythic power per day spent on the ritual.
