    to get away from the architecture a little, bit make some nice happy organic shapes. For me atleast i was thinking along the lines of a biotic fungal environment that developed to the point where it can sustain its own small unique ecosystem. Enjoy and make it as spacey as you like

    taking the word Fungal literally it seems we Must make it organic.

    But organic and natural shapes are not a must here, are they?

    Maybe it could be a fungus that has incorporated a crystalline compound for more structural support, and now as a result only buds off at 45 or 90 degree angles. That would enable less organic and more "structural" shapes, but there would still be room for lots of fungal gooey drippiness. Just a thought.

    exactly, it could for instance, be maybe abandoned man made structures that have been taken over by this fungus, so you can use normal architecture in combination with it, giving you all the flat hard shapes you could possible want.

    After Toxicorp Industries established its fifth US factory just north of Nashville, Tennessee, they had absolutely no idea where they would dump their wastes (a polite way of referring to radioactive sludge) without adversely affecting the population. The president of the company sent a few of the lower-ranking workers out as scouts to search for an appropriate location. In no time, the crew found a large drain pipe that had been cut off from the rest of the city at some point during the recent changes made to the city roads and pipeline. From there on, they dumped their sludge in that very pipe.

    Fastforward a few years, and Toxicorp is out of business for their illegal waste dumping (they never officially bought the land surrounding the pipe), and the drain pipe has since then grown elaborate, disgusting, and elaborately disgusting mold and fungi formations. Civilians are warned to steer clear of the irradiated zone, and scientists intend to study it once the radiation wears off as they suspect that the organisms within, be they large or small, have been affected. They wouldn't be the least bit suprised if entirely new species existed within...

    couldn't resist the purty colors....


    I was thinking of a slime mold that grew down a tunnel, tossed in some shrooms for color, and tadaaaa! Instant fungus tunnel.

    maybe the colors could use some work though. Awsome stuff so far, homeworld

    maybe this version is better?

    the second is better. I needed some seconds to see, what you meant with the pic. I can hardly see the tunnel prspective and point out what is what...

    the tunnel is bowed - so the light should just enlighten one wall side of it... (?)

    EDIT: updated again
    Ok, this is my final image

    Fungal Tunnel
    Game setting:
    The Fungal Tunnel is a gateway-dungeon that connects the two main northeastern regions between the mountains. Besides being a conecting point, it is also a mini-dungeon by itself, with hostile monsters, treasures, and quest oportunities. There are also several entrances, some hidden, some not, to other underground areas, and to more extensive dungeons beneath the mountains.
    Location description:
    The Tunnel is abandoned. Several species of mushrooms of all sizes from enourmous to diminute can be found growing on the floor. On the walls, species of lichen crawl the Tunnel's upper surroundings.
    Possible monsters: Kobolds, Trolls, Sentient Fungi
    Other information: some mushrooms and fungi can be picked up. What you can do with them varies, they can be used in potion preparation, sold, cooked, or eaten raw (Flora Knowledge would be advisable, or be equiped with the Fungal Tome).

    Damn, there are some great entries this week, nice work guys.



    What's that smell? The recent discovery of a tunnel located deep in the congo has brought about a wave of new fungal discoveries.

    Just a WIP for now.




    In the harsh jungles of the Feronus island colonies, the creatures known as the 'Fungal hunter' reside within the Dense and thick jungle vegetation. Hiding in the darkness of the 'Fungal tunnels' they wait for prey to hunt and kill to feed their children and protect the eggs. Local tribesman, knights and explorers come from all over the world to prove their worth by bringing home the 4 glowing eyes of the 'Fungal Hunters'.
