The mutating fungus is a lifeform native to the planet Volturnus, in the Zebulon system.


It is uncertain whether the mutating fungus is an animal, a plant, or a cancer, for it has aspects of all three. In outward appearance, it resembles a white, pasty fungus, yet it is capable of self-locomotion, creeping across small areas of land to attack its prey. Its attack form, however, resembles that of a cancer; replacing the normal, healthy cells of any creature with its own mushy cells.

Any character who is exposed to the mutating fungus for eight hours or more, or who sleeps near it for any amount of time, will find a while, pasty growth covering parts of his body. If the character notices the presence of the fungus within three hours of its attack, he may treat the infected part of his body with antibody plus and counteract the effects of the fungus (though he will not take protected from further attacks). If the character is not treated within three hours, the infected body part must be amputated, or the character will be completely consumed by the fungus within three days. Any character exposed to a mutating fungus for three days without treatment will be transformed into a mutating fungus permanently.
