What are Shroomies used for?
Shroomies are a drug. Each shroomie will provide a different effect, and most are used to enhance strength or mental willpower. Some will use shroomies to ease their pain, and others to trip.
Some of the effects of shroomies:Strength: Some believe shroomies will make them strong enough to smash boulders and move houses: This is partially true; shroomies are used by adventures to enhance strength. Your base strength determines your strength increase. Mental willpower: Metal willpower is something all people seek, and shroomies help most achieve it. Wizards most use Shroomies to allow them to use higher-leveled majick. Getting high: Shroomies are commonly used to get stoned; they allow the user to relax completely. People often use shroomies after a long day at work or after a stressful event. This sensation is also known to calm the nerves and allow for pain to process. Destiny Ascension: some believe that shroomies will cause them to ascend and see something greater, something others have never seen: This is rare and has not been studied thoroughly.
The Shroomie: CultureMany tribes of Beast Born humans worship the shroomie, and although they eat it, they pay it the most respect the creature. The drug sack is seen as a “holy” object, so they often separate it from the shroomie. The most “basic” species is housed for its ability to cause ascension. The Beast Walkers hold ascension on a pedestal. If a member of the tribe goes through one, they're spoiled, protected, and above all else, cherished. Shroomies are not worshiped above other creatures, but they're seen as important and useful.
Basic shroomies are white with red spots. The red spots will turn "dirty" over time.
Genetics and Reproduction
Shroomies reproduce by losing a chunk of their cap. Since shroomies do not have a gender, another shroomie will eat the cap and throw up little caps out of its mouth.
Growth Rate & Stages
Shroomies grow around the bases of oak trees across the Megaverse. When they sprout, they're just a cap. It takes about a week for a cap to grow into a small shroomie. It only takes two weeks for a shroomie to be fully developed. They grow better in complete darkness, and often the sun will slow them down. You will find a cluster of growing shroomies on the inside of a tree, where it is most dark. Caps can only be found in shaded areas.
Ecology and Habitats
Shroomies can be found in only warm climates, they love oak and will deal with a little cold to get close to it. Shroomies come in a variety of species, but these shroomies can not be in a climate that is too hot, or too cold. They can negatively impact an environment if force inside an ecosystem. Animals will try and eat them, get sick from the drug sack, and die. Shroomies live in colonies of 13-32 and can often be seen marching around the forests they inhabit. Predators that can eat them use this as a chance to snag a group. The Bullette is a good example of such a beast.
Dietary Needs and Habits
Shroomies eat nuts, berries, and other older shroomies that will die anyway. The elder shroomie is eaten by members of the shroomcycle. Shroomies despise the sun, so they stay far away from it. All their nutrients come from the various plants and insects they eat. Some shroomies have been caught eating meat but this is a rare case.
Shroomies hibernate in the winter, for the most part. When the sun is out they will hide in holes, or under leaves. Shroomies do not like the sun. The cap of a shroomie will change with the seasons, often taking on a different appearance based on what the weather is like. Their red dots will turn white in the winter, yellow in the fall, green in the spring, and the color will vary in the summer.
Shroomies do not have a social structure.
Most do not keep them as pets, but shroomies are extremely friendly.
Shroomies do not have a face, they have a mouth though! It can only be seen when they're about to eat.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Shroomies can be found anywhere where oak exists. Shroomies will stay away from water; they cant swim, so they would float away.
Shroomies have basic functions, but they're not very smart. Shroomies do not recoginzie danger! They love humans and will often approch them, only to be eaten.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Shroomies do not have crazy abilities. However, they're very quick.
Symbiotic and Parasitic organisms
Shroomies can often be found helping feline species. Felines cannot eat shroomies but do keep them around to ward off insects. Most insects cant eat shroomies, they're drug sack would poison them. The insects kept away are especially bothersome to these feline species.

Shroomies have a large-cap on their head, this is used to reproduce and fight off the sun. Their bodies can be skinny or chunky depending on how many elder shroomies they eat. Shroomies have “shoes” these just look like shoes. They weight the shroomie down, and keep it from floating away. These “shoes” are very crunchy, and should be cooked before eating.
The Drug SackDrug sacks come in a variety of colors but always take the same shape. They have a gas that comes out of the top, this is what gives shroomies their scent. The drug sack is tough to chew on, most people will cook it to enhance the effects. Each drug sack has a different taste, and they're not very tasty. Weight: 1 pound This is where the majority of the shroomies weight comes from.
