Fungus Bogs

We're almost sorry to send employees in here, but the rewards are too great to ignore. So therefore: Welcome to the Fungus Bogs! A truly awful region, built mostly from slime, mold, stinging insects, fungus, stinking mud, and corrosive lichen.
— Ingame description

Fungus Bogs is one of the biomes of Hoxxes IV. It is made up of large caverns filled with different kinds of Xenofungi, which range in size from small to extremely large. Larger Xenofungi are big enough to be used as platforms. The dirt making up the caves is durable, taking two hits for it to give way.


The biome-specific hazards for Fungus Bogs are Poison Spores Fungus, medium-sized mushrooms that release poisonous vapors, damaging dwarves who get too close, and Sticky Goo, a deep-green bubbly goo which can cover large areas of the floor, dramatically slowing movement of any Dwarf or Glyphid walking across it.

Similar to other biomes, Fungus Bogs has Explosive Plants, which explode violently when sufficiently damaged. The explosions are able to trigger other nearby explosive plants, which may then cause a deadly chain-reaction.


Most Glyphids can be encountered in Fungus Bogs, including Spitball Infectors, Cave Leeches, and Glyphid Dreadnoughts.

As with every biome, some of the Ores that can be found in the Fungus Bogs are determined by the mission type, such as Morkite Morkite and Aquarq Aquarq. The crafting materials found in the Fungus Bogs are Croppa Croppa and Jadiz Jadiz, with Croppa being abundant and Jadiz being scarce.

Deep Dive Sentences

When Fungus Bogs is selected as the biome for a Deep Dive, one of those sentences can be seen in the terminal:

  • "Give it time and the Fungus grows on you."
  • "More dwarves have gone to the bogs to never be seen again than anyone would like to admit."
  • "It was a paradise for fungus, but a green hell for dwarves!"
  • "The sticky ground caused many failed expeditions."
  • "It grows on anything!"
  • "I still haven't gotten rid of my last fungal infection."
  • "I heard this was Karl's favorite biome. He was such a fun guy. Get it?"
  • "Watch where you sit! Last time I got a rash that lasted for days."


  • Added during the Early Access period with Update 7: Alpha Launch on the 28th February 2018.
  • When pinging a specific variation of the Brown Puffball Fungus, for no explicable reason, dwarves will give the unique voice response "Mushroom" despite all other variations prompting generic ping voice lines. Although this voice line was likely going to be one of several other voice lines unique for mushrooms that GSG hadn't gotten around to adding during Early Access, it has remained in it's current state due to the community's attachment to the mundane yet bizarre nature of the voice line. This has also prompted GSG to introduce custom Mission Control responses for pinging it repeatedly.
