Gorgeous, fun book
Great quality hardcover and beautiful glossy pages. The art is fantastic and the ability to call up fungi at random in my games is fun for my players and for myself.

As a mycologist who loves D&D, this is a magically charming book! The stories of each species are creative and appropriately whimsical or spooky. I was impressed by some correct usage of Mycological terms.
My only small complaint is that the book repeatedly refers to the structures on some mushrooms called “volvas” as “vulvas” 😅 Definitely not the same thing! But that’s a minor gripe from a trained scientist.
Lovely illustrations, feels like being in another world when you can flip through a field guide like this one.

This book makes for a great supplement to my games.
The wide variety of fungi and molds in this book make great additions to any game. With the wide range of affects and abilities some even have the potential to have whole quests, or even campaigns, centered around them!

An Excellent Guidebook
Fungi of the Far Realms has beautiful depictions of hundreds of different mushrooms and fungi. All the descriptions are worth the read. An excellent purchase for adding unique and interesting fungi to your stories and games.

This book is adorable
I am so glad I grew up to be the kind of person who impulse buys a catalogue of fictional mushrooms and squees like a dork when he finally gets to read it.
The item is exactly as described on the tin: a book about fake mushrooms you could expect to find in any given fantasy world. It includes a set of system agnostic rules to help you randomly select a mushroom for your players to encounter (complete with mouthfeel description for when the barbarian player decides to eat it). There are also descriptions of poisonous and hallucinogen effects in a very useful set of appendices.
But the book's true purpose goes beyond gaming.
It's the kind of thing you should have lying around your house for guests to randomly pick up. They will casually look through it, only to wonder if they've entered your home or a portal to some sort of elsewhere. There will be people "get it" and instantly know you're the kind of oddball they should spend their time with and the rest can go chew on a Fool's Truffle.
Thank you for making this book.
