Myconids are a non-playable race of ambulatory and sentient fungi in Baldur's Gate 3.

About myconids[edit | edit source]

Myconids are a peaceful species of sentient fungi found in the Underdark. Groups of myconids live in communities called circles – a collective consciousness or hivemind that communicate through a song-like telepathy, speaking in visions and music. Other species may communicate with myconids through the ingestion of airborn spores.

Circles are lead by a single Sovereign, who determines the song of its people (and thus the temperament of a circle), and is able to spawn more myconid by embedding spores into a corpse and resurrecting it.

As the Underdark lacks in food sources or light, myconid have evolved to sustain themselves by drinking the essence of the energy of the Underdark – the faerzress.[1] As such, myconid cannot leave the Underdark.
