Habitat……Dark and damp areas
Diet……Nutrients from earth, Semen
Another plant based Rogue taking the shape and properties of various types of mushrooms. They are often found in dark areas with high humidity. Like their other plant type cousins, they are able to absorb nutrients through their roots. However unlike the Maredragora for example, the Sillus is not able to move for obvious reasons. Although they are able to survive off nutrients alone, they will be weak and very sluggish if they do so.
Sillus’ contain spores that are particularly heavy. Due to their weight, they do not travel far from the point of origin. The spores are in fact a heavy aphrodisiac and once inhaled a pony may find themselves craving sex. The Sillus will then attempt to seduce the affected pony into mating with her. The victim will be virtually unable to resist. Sillus’ will take both male and female ponies each having different effects. Males will serve as a food source, as the Sillus will continue to cover him in spores. The male will soon be covered in Sillus spawn, continually feeding her his semen for as long as he is capable of doing so. Females will be seduced into sexual intercourse to give the Sillus a prime opportunity of covering her with spores. They will also penetrate the female with a small tube in which they will pump a thick yellow fluid inside them. The fluid is a liquid form of the spores and will sever as a means of slowly converting the female into a Sillus.
Both of these processes take several days and both have current known cures. It is important to never go alone into areas where Sillus’ are known to reside. Take a partner or 2, to snatch the victims away from the Rogues grasps should someone be affected. Of course you will need to cover your mouth should you find yourself having to go near a Sillus’ in order to rescue a victim. It is very important to wash yourself off thoroughly to remove all the spores that may have collected on your body.
There have been a few cases of entire towns becoming full of Sillus’ due to unreported exposure to the spores. The victims soon began releasing their own spores, eventually affecting the entire population. Please report any and all possible exposures. They are easily prevented through simple remedies.
Sillus caps are often collected and washed to produce a powerful aphrodisiac. They can also be used to cure weak poisons when boiled.
theres a typo in the last sentence of the second paragraph, I presume sever is meant to be serve? Still awesome work, keep it up!
