The rhizopus are a bizarre fungal creature that resembles an octopus with gill-like structures surrounding it's central core. It's body is arranged radially with eight equidistant fronds that it can use to move towards sources of heat, water and nutrients. These include dead bodies and slow creatures. The fronds of the rhizopus can constrict once they successfully hit for one point of damage each round but are easily broken (2 points of damage from any source). Those constricted by a frond are at -1 to AC and -1 to hit per frond to a maximum of -4 AC/-4 to hit. The rhizopus can regrow a frond but this costs 1 hit point. If attacked, the rhizopus spits a 10' diameter radius clous of spores. These spores force a save vs. Poison or feel sick (-2 to hit for an hour). Worse yet, food and water or a corpse brought into the spore cloud is spoiled and needs a purify food and water spell to restore. If the food is discarded, a new rhizopus will grow from it in three days. Undead are not affected by the spores of a rhizopus.
