So in my campaign I want to eventually pit my players against the feared Mold Men of 2nd edition. I know i have a lot of updating I need to do and I want to change some things, but here is a small sample

My Mold men will possess tremorsense, since they will not be able to speak. They will have regeneration (except to fire and acid), and Damage resistance 20/ slashing or Piercing. They will also possess the ability to create spawn, though it will be time consuming.

So,
1. What should their challenge rating be, assuming they are based on having 1 Hd?
2. Should the resist elect., cold, magic, etc.?
3. Are there any other things you wonder about that I could clarify?

edit: I have decided to add Water sensitivity in order to offset some of this. When immersed in water, or in conditions of moderate to heavy rain or snow, their DR drops to 10.

I wonder if this would work better as a template?

I was kind of thinking that, actually... Some kind of ooze/fungus that animates the body.

Now that I think about it, there's president for that type of creature in the SSS's Creature Collection. I ahve it here somewhere, if you'd like a gander.

But yeah, I kind of like a template idea. Then there are Mold Animals and such.

Question, though -- are they intelligent, like Myconids, or are they mindless, like an Ooze?

They are intelligent but semimindless. They would probably be immune to fear and such.

You'll have to explain that one to me.

Intelligent, but mindless? Like a horse or a dog, or something?

High problem solving capacity, but little upper level reasoning. Concepts like morality, emotion, fear, anger and hope mean little, but survival is paramount. I was thinking about changing their type to "plant", but that's not entirely accurate.

Maybe magical Plant? like Magical Beast?

Actually, that might be perfect... Magical plant. Hmm..

Or whatever the hell MYconids are.
