Vegepygmies, also known as moldies, mold folk or mold men, 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.
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.
