Fungi—a group of life that includes various types of molds, mushrooms, and slimes—are distinct types of plants that share few plant-like traits. Like plants, most fungi are stationary; however, they generally absorb nutrients in ways more similar to animals, do not photosynthesize light, and reproduce via spores.12 This group can also include creatures comprised of or animated by fungus.3
Fungal pilgrim druids are specialised in their care for nature by seeking to become more plant-like, eventually transforming into a fungal form. Their summoned creatures and animal companion eventually become fungal creatures.4
- Fungus, Wikipedia. In the real world, fungi are considered to be more closely related to animals than plants and share few traits with plants. In Pathfinder Roleplaying Game mechanics, creatures comprised of or related to fungi are plants.
