When an Octoshroom dies it releases reproductive spores and any character within a radius of 5 feet must make a Physical Effect save and on a failure become an incubator for the fungi. Left untreated, the creature will lose 1d6 Hit Points every 5 days that cannot be healed and when the creature reaches 0 Hit Points it dies and a new Octoshroom will grow to maturity within 1d10 days on the corpse.
Octoshrooms grow to sizes of 4 feet to 16 feet (1d4x4) and appear completely harmless until the ambush their prey.
