Mushroom people are small little fungi that are generally friendly,
but are easily mistakeningly stepped upon by larger creatures. Many of
these swift-moving mushrooms live in the Forest of the Spirits
and are friends of
the Tree Spirit
there, who sent them on a quest to find a human man for her.
1647 GUE, the mushroom people, after finding the unknown
to be kind-hearted and merciful towards them, were able to guide
him through the Forest of the Spirits to the Tree Spirit by arranging
their bodies into "arrows" to point the direction of needed travel
as they marched along the forest floor.
