Size: Exact size unknown, possibly up to 10 acres or more
Origin: Brown Mountain, North Carolina
Habitat: Brown Mountain, North Carolina
General Description: A giant subterranean fungal system. The organism manifests itself on the surface in the form of small white mushrooms that produce tiny spore "clouds" when stepped on. The spores contain a powerful hallucinogenic alkaloid, which also acts as a neurological inhibitor causing a state of narcosis. The combined psycho-neurological effect of the alkaloid prevents the victims, who were unlucky enough to step on the mushroom, from getting away while sinking deeper into the ground and being slowly digested by the digestive secretions of the organism.

Total Estimated Power Rating: 7
2 Intellect Points + 1 Base Physical Strength Points + 1 Point for Relative Immortality + 2 Points for Mind Control Skills + 1 Additional Point for the Hallucinogenic Alkaloids
Power Rating Estimate Notes: The Hallucinogenic Mushroom is a powerful organism. It is highly recommended to wear a gas mask when approaching Brown Mountain to avoid inhaling the spores produced by the mushroom. If you were unlucky enough to get under the influence of the hallucinogenic alkaloids, try to think logically and doubt everything (even if it looks like reality.) This might help you to regain consciousness. Keep in mind that even if the hallucinogenic effects wear off, your body will still remain in a state of narcosis and you will not be able to escape without assistance. If nobody is coming to your rescue it is advisable to remain in the hallucinogenic trance, thus avoiding horrible pain caused by being digested alive.
