Fairy Ring Mushroom

Wondrous item, rare

This mushroom from the realm of the fey can quickly sprout a fairy ring. When you plant it in fertile ground as an action, a fairy ring pops up in a 20-foot-radius around the planted mushroom.

Anyone other than you who starts their turn within this ring must succeed at a DC 17 Charisma saving throw.

On a failure, they begin dancing as per the spell irresistible dance.

Dancing creatures cannot cross the boundary of the ring willingly, and the ring makes it more difficult for others to remove them as well. Those attempting to remove afflicted creatures must attempt a saving throw against or be afflicted themselves. The fairy ring persists for 9 rounds, after which time the fairy ring vanishes in a puff of spores that grow into rings of ordinary edible mushrooms within one week.
