Three Ways to Cast Spells With a Grung
Grung is a type of mushroom that grows on the muddy banks of streams and lakes in North America. It can grow up to eight inches (about 20 centimetres) tall and has a diameter of about three feet (one meter). Its color varies from grey, brown, tan to creamy white. Its cap has a ring of hairs around it and the centre of the lid is colored black. The stem of this mushroom has a single branch that extends straight down to the base of the hat.
D&D players initially used Grung for many different purposes. They have been used to protect campers, hunters and fishers from being poisoned while they slept. This is because grungs resemble a poisonous worm; therefore, if the sleeper ingested any of the poison during their sleep, they would become unconscious and die within hours.
Toxicity of Grung
Grungs are highly toxic and cause death within hours of contact. Although they do not contain any poison, they are highly toxic. Primarily, the poisonous substance in grungs is the alkaloid gmallopyrum. This substance is a naturally occurring element found in all kinds of fungus. Usually, the body decays this material leaving only the skin cells behind. When humans and other mammals have come in contact with drugs that contain gmallopyrum, it results in fatal poisoning. Therefore, all drugs were looked down upon by Native Americans. Only royalties and wealthy people had access to the grungs. Therefore, only they could use them. However, some grung did have medicinal uses. These medicinal uses gave rise to the common name “grung” which became the word for medicinal mushroom.
Some of the grung tribes were said to be able to turn the human into a walking tree. Others claimed that they could transform humans into animals such as pigs and deer. Grung is also considered to be a kind of voodoo potion. However, these creatures were highly respected by Native Americans due to their longevity and their strange powers. There were even certain tribes who took on the grung concept as a religious practice. In North America, grung appeared in groups called castes. Each caste represented a particular type of plant. The grungs were most prevalent among the Lakota and Dakota tribes. These tribes believed that the grungs were given by the Great Spirit to protect them in battle or to reward them for being good fighters.
The three feet and seven inches long grungs were considered representative of the Lakota’s Three Men of Iron, who protected the tribes during battles. The seven-inch grung was thought to be representative of the seven-man tribe, which the Blackfoot led. The Rigid caste system was believed to represent the Dakota people, which governed the Lakota and Dakota, tribes. The Rigid caste system was responsible for the creation of the Blackfoot Indians.
It was believed that the grung and the other frog-like creatures were sent by the Great Spirit to guard the Plains tribes from harm. Although many thought that the grung was a symbol of good luck, it was also used to frighten away evil spirits that caused sickness among the tribes. It is believed that the Great Spirit sent the frog-like creatures to keep the enemy tribes away from the tribes. For this reason, it was used by some war chiefs to frighten away the enemy warriors before battles.
Grungs are not only used for warfare they are also used as tools by Indian tribes for various activities. Grunging is part of the ceremony for starting a new tribe or to start the contemporary practice of medicine among the tribes. Some tribes believe that the grung must be gathered in one place so that all the power that they have accumulated can be concentrated to make the ground fertile. This helps the plants grow well and there will be no shortage of food—the power of the grung increases when applied to different objects such as water. Thus, when used to an object with the capability of magnetism, such as a fishing lure, it increases the speed of the fish to catch it.
After the warriors collect the poison-infused grung, they need to throw them over the fence to drive the poisoned creatures away. However, this is only meant as a temporary method because the poisoned creature must make its way out of the ground before the warriors can throw the grung over the fence. When it tries to escape, it releases a cloud of poisonous gas. The warriors must clean their weapon before using it on another creature.
These are some of the uses of the Grung like it is used to scare away evil spirits, poison the enemy, gather the wind and form the earth, and make the ground fertile, among other things. These three methods are mainly used to defend the villages from being attacked. A Grung is not thrown over the fence or pierced through the neck, but it must be thrown over the top of the barrier where the attacker is coming from. It must travel a very long distance and reach the edge of the battlefield to scare off the attacker. Only experts know how to cast spells with the Grung that makes the sound like that of a vast army rushing towards your position.
