Fen[edit]

The Fen have been around ever since Focis came into being; but would it kill them to wear a stick of deodorant every now and again?

Physical Description[edit]

Similar to the Myconid, the Fen are a species of sentient, humanoid mushrooms that desire nothing more than true peace. The difference between the two is that Fen will hunt down any decomposing organisms, feeding on the bodies of the dead and the grass they stand on. A Fen typically has white skin, but its cap can vary in color depending on the source that the specific Fen came from. Fen lack typical appendages, desiring to grow around something that they wish to grab, rather than growing hands instead; they also lack mouths, feeding from their touch and speaking through spore patterns.

History[edit]

The Fen were originally a creation of the Drow, in an attempt to convert the Myconid into both a killing machine and a custodial construct for the Drow prisons. The first Fen to rebel were burned for trying to devour the Drow guards, and the descendants of those Fen have grown vengeful of the disgrace they have been dealt. Even the Myconids, their parent species, despise their existence and sees the Fen as a mockery to their peaceful nature.

When the first free Fen were released onto the world, they captured the prison that tried to kill them, devouring the captives and jailers to create the first Fen tribe. From there, the history of the Fen is known only to them, passed on by their shared memories.

Society[edit]

Fen society is the antithesis to Myconid society; they hunt their prey in groups by their touch and spore senses and do so with little to no second thoughts. When not on the hunt, Fen are known to play number games or play games with stone dice, a habit that was adapted from the humanoids that they have devoured.

Fen are known to roam in these groups, leaving trails of spores behind as messages; they glow brilliantly against the darkness, their color dictated by the color of the Fen's cap that left said message.

Fen Names[edit]

The Fen have no names aside from "The Fen"; in Fen society, they refer to themselves as numbers, the number referring to when they were created. A Fen's age can be measured by the number of zeroes in front of their base number.
