Violet fungi are 4’ to 7’ tall, resemble shriekers, and are often found growing among them. A violet fungi’s coloration ranges from purple overall to dull gray or violet covered with purple spots. A violet fungus flails about with its 1d4 tentacles at living creatures that come within its reach of 1’ to 4’ per tentacle. The tentacles ooze a rot-inducing slime, causing a victim to save versus poison or after one round rot into a corpse. If the spell cure disease is cast on the round immediately after the attack, the effect is avoided.

Violet fungi are large mushrooms with tentacle-like growths at the base. The tentacles are not long, averaging about 2-3ft. A hit from a tentacle causes flesh to rot (saving throw applies) unless a cure disease spell is cast upon the afflicted area.
