Whorlstone Tunnels

The Whorlstone Tunnels are a cavern system extending partially underneath Gracklstugh, away from the mines and passages the city’s inhabitants use regularly. The long, gently curving tunnels have relatively regular dimensions. They are known for their unusual rock formations and abundant patches of fungi, and for being suffused with faerzress.

General Features

Ceilings and Floors. The average ceiling height is 50 feet, dropping to 25 feet in narrow tunnels.

Narrow Tunnels. The narrowest tunnels are barely 2 feet wide at their widest points. A Tiny creature can move through these tunnels unimpeded, while a Small creature must squeeze to pass through them. Medium and larger creatures can’t fit through these narrow passageways.

Faerzress. The Whorlstone Tunnels are suffused with faerzress. Faerzress has also altered the physical appearance of the complex, creating spiral patterns on the walls and ceilings. These spirals are what give the complex its name.

Edible Fungi. Edible fungi are abundant in the Whorlstone Tunnels. Characters can attempt Wisdom (Survival) checks to forage here.

New Fungi

The Whorlstone Tunnels are home to some new, and unique fungi.

Bigwig

A bigwig is a four-inch-tall mushroom with a thin stem and a wide purple cap. A creature that eats one can choose to make a Constitution saving throw to not be affected by the mushroom’s magic. If a creature fails or forgoes the saving throw, it grows in size as though under the enlarge effect of an enlarge/reduce spell. The effect lasts for 1 hour. Ten minutes before the effect ends, the creature feels a tingling sensation.

Pygmywort

A pygmywort is a mushroom with a one-inch-long stem and a stubby blue cap with white dots. A creature that eats one can choose to make a Constitution saving throw to not be affected by the mushroom’s magic. If the creature fails or forgoes the saving throw, it shrinks in size as though under the reduce effect of an enlarge/reduce spell. The effect lasts for 1 hour. Ten minutes before the effect ends, the creature feels a tingling sensation.
