Illustration of a wide, round mushroom with a sparkly, red, flat cap. Its gills and stem are dark.


Safety Rating: Physically harmless, but can be socially dangerous.

Environment: Grasslands.

Fairy Circles: Each fairy circle fungus produces a ring of mushrooms that has a magical effect on anyone who enters it. They are called fairy circles because a number of fairy communities are heavily involved in cultivating and breeding them. As a result, there are many different varieties of fairy circle fungus, each of which produces a mushroom with a distinctive appearance.

Details: The large mushrooms of the Sparkling Red Fairy Circle Fungus have dramatic red and black coloring. The top of their perfectly round, flat caps are bright red and they sparkle as if they are encrusted with sequins. The underside of the cap has gills that form swirling black ruffles. These dramatic caps sit proudly on long, thin, black stems.

The ring formed by the Sparkling Red Fairy Circle is thirty feet wide. Anyone who enters it has the overwhelming urge to burst into song, expressing their deepest feelings through music and dance.

The fairies that bred the Sparkling Red Fairy Circle made it purely for their own amusement. As a joke, it is regularly grown on narrow grassland pathways where the fairies can hide the mushrooms in the tall plants on either side of the path. This means that unsuspecting travelers regularly enter these fairy circles without realizing what has happened. The resulting musical confusion is considered hilarious.

Magical Compulsion: Anyone that enters this fairy circle must roll their magical defense. Note that players do not have to sing if they don’t want to—describing how their character is singing is fine.

  • 0 Successes: A failure means that the character immediately bursts into a song and dance performance that expresses one of their deepest feelings. The player gets to choose which deep feeling this is, but it must be something significant. The character can only leave the circle when their performance is completed, but if there are other actions that they want to take, they can incorporate those actions into their performance.
  • 1 Success: A partial success means that the character feels the need to share something through song and dance, but it doesn’t need to be anything deep.
  • 2 Successes: A full success means that the character can only communicate through song and dance while in this circle, but is otherwise unaffected by it.
  • 3 Successes: An outstanding success means that the character is fully protected from this magic and can act normally.
