This post does a good job of describing the ability and some history of Izkandar. But I would love to see more historical allusion, and some description of Izkandar's personality. Is he imperialistic? Does he spread culture? Honorable? Cruel? There's not much descrption of personality/motivation given, which is to me the most interesting part. Go to Comment
The winged mushrooms (Lerreta Meia) are a species of giant insect indigenous to the leafy areas of Udnalor, Kingdom of the Gnomes. Outwardly they appear much the same as ordinary giant mushrooms, and they graze in the bulbous fungal glades. However, this is merely an elaborate camouflage: the insect beneath is a fungivore and prone to fly off when it encounters another creature. Sometimes gnome farmers mistake them for crop mushrooms. They're in for a surprise when they do.
