Monster: Basidirond

Monster: Basidirond

The basidirond is another fungal monster that can either release a line of toxic spores or a cloud of hallucinogenic spores. Fun. I've used those in Pathfinder, if I recall things correctly.

Slam (11): The basidirond typically attacks by slamming (p. B371) the opponents.
Hallucination Spores: The basidirond can release hallucination spores in a 8-yard-radius area around it byt spending 1 FP and taking two Ready maneuvers. The cloud stays for 10 seconds and drifts with the wind. Any creature that breathes in these spores must make a successful HT roll or hallucinate (p. B428) for margin of failure minutes.
Spore Cloud (13): The basidirond can spew a 10-yard-long line of spores in a line. Any creature in that line that does not hold its breath (a Sense roll is required to notice the spores in time) and inhales the spores must make an immediate HT-1 roll or suffer 1d toxic damage. Every 10 seconds for 5 more cycles it must make another HT-1 roll to resist or take the same amount of damage.
