Unique Hazard(s) Poison Spores Fungus, Sticky Goo
We're almost sorry to send employees in here, but the rewards are too great to ignore. So therefore: Welcome to the Fungus Bogs! A truly awful region, built mostly from slime, mold, stinging insects, fungus, stinking mud, and corrosive lichen.
~ Ingame description

The Fungus Bogs is one of the biomes of Hoxxes IV. They are made up of large caverns filled with different kinds of Xenofungi, which may range in size from small to extremely large. Larger Xenofungi are big enough to be used as platforms. The rock making up the caves is durable, meaning it takes two hits for it to give way.

HazardsEdit

The biome-specific hazards for Fungus Bogs are Poison Spores Fungus, medium-sized mushrooms that release poisonous vapors, damaging dwarves who get too close, and Sticky Goo, a deep-green bubbly goo which can cover large areas of the floor, dramatically slowing movement of any dwarf or enemy walking across it.

Like other biomes, the Fungus Bogs have Explosive Plants, which explode violently when sufficiently damaged. The explosions are able to trigger other nearby explosive plants, which may then cause a deadly chain-reaction.

EnemiesEdit

Most enemies can be encountered in the Fungus Bogs, including Spitball Infectors, Cave Leeches and Glyphid Dreadnoughts.

OresEdit

As with every biome, some of the Ores that can be found in the Fungus Bogs are determined by the mission type, such as Morkite and Aquarq. The crafting materials found in the Fungus Bogs are   Croppa and   Jadiz, with Croppa being abundant and Jadiz being scarce.
