A small mushroom that is curious, yet cautious of players. They live only on Mooshroom Island and stay partially buried underground, you can only see their cap from a distance. When a player approaches within 2 blocks, they pop up showing their little eyes.
[+] If you feed them any sapling, they will drop red or brown mushrooms with a somewhat rare (maybe 25%) chance they will drop a new item - Truffles. If you are careful, you can “breed” them by feeding a bucket of water to one, making a new one pop up nearby. They don’t mate with other mushrooms. They reproduce by budding. However, if you misclick and accidentally pour the water on top of them, they drown (they wilt and die).
[-] When attacked, they spew out a cloud of poison as a defense, that gives a poison and haze effect to the player. The haze effect disorients the player making the controls reversed and blurring their vision. This effect lasts 10-20 seconds giving the mushroom enough time to go back underground and move away from the player in a 15 block radius. If killed, they drop xp, red or brown mushrooms, and a very rare (5%) chance to drop a Truffle.
-Splash potion of Haze (disorients and blinds)
-Fortified Mushroom stew (player doesn’t lose any health for 3 minutes)
-eaten raw will refill 6 hearts.
I’m not sure on a name or color for this mushroom. Maybe an off-white color?
They’ll definitely give players a reason to seek out Mooshroom Island. :)
