ABOUT

Approachable and easygoing, fungodillos represent an unusual mix between an armadillo and a mushroom cluster.

Their unique physiology allows fungodillos to curl into a bouncy ball to protect themselves against incoming attacks and roll away from danger.

Fungodillos like to form groups with their siblings and travel together to avoid predators. When a fungodillo is alone in the world, it will often seek out the company of other benign creatures or friendly humanoids that will not treat it like food.

Parental Memories. When a fungodillo dies and is buried in fertile soil, its body produces several fungodillo children that retain all the memories of the fungodillo that died. That way, fungodillos carry the memories of their parents without ever meeting them.

Familiar. At the gamemaster’s discretion, a player character who can cast find familiar may choose the form of a fungodillo for their familiar.

Awakened Fungodillos. Fungodillos are eligible targets for the awaken spell. Awakened fungodillos often enjoy ball games both as players and as the ball itself. Some awakened fungodillos might seek to become biographers and chronicle the experiences of their ancestors.
