The Caravan finds itself bogged down in a torrential rain storm for several days. They make camp as they can travel no farther.
The next morning The Magnificent 7 find the entire caravan surround by fast growing mushrooms. They are everywhere and as you step on them or crush them they seem to let out a small moan or cry of pain, along with a small puff of smoke.
As the group watches the fungus and wonders what to do, they notice the mushrooms are growing quite fast. What was small champagne cork sized growths; are now half a foot tall and it has only been an hour. The livestock started to become more and more skittish as each plant is killed.
Arthur and Nizitz quickly come with a plan to clear a path so the caravan can move away from the mushrooms. Arthur, Zatara, Hadrar and Nizitz begin hacking and clearing a path for the wagons to move out on. As they do so the moaning and cries intensifies. Suddenly Zatara is overcome by grief, sorrow and depression and falls to the ground shaken and unable to move.
Once the group is clear of the fungus Arthur uses his newly gained powers as a Paladin to “Lay Healing Hands” on Zatara and it cures her of her immobilizing depression and grief. Unfortunately, it is two days before the poison of the mushrooms works its way out of her system and the night terror stop.
The wagons and Heroes continue north to Waterdeep.
