These mushrooms are mottled brown with green spots. They are bursting with poisonous gas. Periodically, they visibly swell and make a high-pitched chirp. These characteristics help differentiate exploding mushrooms from their purely decorative cousins.
When the mushroom is destroyed, its poison is released in a cloud of gas. This is the same gas that is released when the cleric uses a fléchette, however, unlike the cleric's clouds, they will not leave their point of origin when hit by a Disc of Repulsion. Players who come in contact with the gas will emit a hacking cough and suffer gradual poison damage; monsters who wander into the cloud will also be injured.
