    I know nothing about D&D mushroom-people but here in our reality fungi are more closely related to animals than to plants. So no wonder there are translation issues.

    But fungi aren’t plants! Don’t know of a ‘speak with fungi’ spell, though 🙂

    Is it pedantic to point out that mushrooms aren’t plants? We’re as closely related to plants as they are.

    Yeah, it’s one of those odd things. The monster manual lists Myconoids as “Plants” even though they’re fungus, which means that the Speak To Plants spell covers them as well.

    It’s for simplicity’s sake.

    @rmw : Not really. It would be more accurate to say that fungi are no closer to plants than they are to animals.

    Anyone else bothered that speak with plants isn’t a wizard spell?

  10. So TSR did not have Speak with Biologist and did the best they could?

  11. Is it deliberate that our cleric looks like Alice (of Wonderland)?
