Race Shroomtrent
First Appearance Kobold Headhunters


"A really giant patch of mushrooms that you shouldn't touch because they are bad for you."
— Rob, while discussing the set up to Woodcarvers.

Shroomtrents are large mushroom-like creatures that first appeared in the Kobold Headhunters campaign.

Characteristics[edit]

A Shroomtrent takes on the appearance of a giant mushroom, with a face on the 'stem' of the mushroom, with two eyes and a mouth. It also has one long, large arm that extends from the stem, which it can move freely to pick up or strike targets on the ground. The appearance of its lower half is unknown, but it is able to move, so it is known that it is not rooted to one spot. Shroomtrents also have a strange language that is unique to them, their smaller spawn, and even other beings polymorphed into Shroomtrents. To other races, this sounds like gibberish, although the tone of what they are saying does seem to translate, as the Kobolds in Kobold Headhunters were able to understand that it was mocking them. The Shroomtrent in Kobold Headhunters liked to taunt its opponents, insulting them in this mushroom language and laughing at them.

History[edit]

Kobold Headhunters[edit]

Shortly after defeating the flock of Scrooges and cooking the body of Noxel's Squire, a Shroomtrent came out of the forest and attacked the party. It showed to be formidable enemy, but by using Burrito to distract it, and figuring out the power of its mist on the Kobolds, they were able to defeat it.

Woodcarvers[edit]

The Shroomtrent's fungus had infected the forest surrounding Waldon, so The Woodcarvers were tasked with taking out the Trent itself to save the forest. Upon battling it, it split many times, but as the Trent grew smaller and smaller, one of its remaining pieces began to quickly grow in size, larger than it even was before. However, as it appeared to be too large to defeat, Golestandt flew overhead and breathed death onto the land below, killing the Shroomtrent instantly.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Shroomtrent is the first character to have demonstrated an ability which did not require a die to be rolled.
  • The Shroomtrent that appeared in Kobold Headhunters was intended to appear in the same encounter as the Scrooges. However, Rob delayed it and had a break between the two because he "needed to pee."
  • Even though Golestandt's breath converted many of the townsfolk of Waldon into Ageless, the Shroomtrent itself wasn't converted, as it has no skeleton.
