Unit Description

Maddened by dank mould and mushrooms, a Goblin Shaman hurls debilitating spells into the enemy's ranks with chaotic abandon.

Historical Description

Night Goblin Shamans wear the easily-recognised hoods of their kind and are known for being particularly crazed due to eating vast quantities of hallucinogenic mushrooms. They are especially knowledgeable about fungus and only Night Goblin Shamans know the full rituals for growing, picking and preparing the deadly madcap mushrooms that can turn a Night Goblin into a ball-wielding Fanatic. It is said that a Night Goblin Shaman who eats too many mushrooms will eventually turn into a Shamanshroom, a magic-saturated fungal shoot. It is a damp, dull life as a mushroom, but it will probably get worse; as Shamanshrooms are highly coveted by other magic-casters, getting turned into one is surely a one-way ticket to being eaten alive.


Mad Cap Mushrooms

Night Goblin Shamans brew a pungent fungus potion that, when drunk, will send the Fanatics into a spinning, whirling cyclone of death!
