Vegepygmies, also known as moldies, mold folk or mold men[1], were fungus creatures that lived in dark forests or underground, hunting for sustenance and spreading the spores from which they reproduced. They were spawned from dead humanoids or giants that were killed by a type of mold commonly known as russet mold.[2]

SocietyEdit

Vegepygmies were organized in simple tribal units, led by their elders, whom outsiders referred to as "chiefs". Chiefs bore spores which they could use to infect creatures the same way russet mold did. If a beast died infected by russet mold or a chief's spores, then a bestial moldie, known as a "thorny", would sprout instead.[2]

Vegepygmy tribes had good relations with myconids, shriekers, and violet fungi.[2]

HistoryEdit

The origin of vegepygmies was ultimately unknown. It was speculated that vegepygmies originated outside of Toril, and were brought there by a falling star infested with russet mold.[2]

Numerous vegepygmy tribes were known to dwell in the Chultan wilderness in the late 1480s DR.[3]
