Dark Island Reskin 2: Goblin Fungus Garden

Expanding this post...
http://elfmaidsandoctopi.blogspot.com/2018/06/dungeon-zine-3-dark-island.html

Will eventually put my one sheet zines into one book with reskins and will try and do one new one a month.

Dark Island has gone through various phases in the past from when it was capitol of a pocket empire to a mostly empty haunted place. Some phases the dragon cult was strongest and the Dragon Queen lived as a human mostly, other times dragonmen were supreme. It has been abandoned and goblins turned it into a fungus farm amid the dragon skeletons. Even undead have infested it. Occasionally the queen has left for a few decades then returned and rebuilt.

Lots of my mushroom tables would help here.
