In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, the vegepygmy is a plant creature.

Publication history[edit]

The vegepygmy was created by Gary Gygax. It first appeared in first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons in the adventure module Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (1980),[1] and was reprinted in the original Monster Manual II (1983).[2]

The vegepygmy appeared in second edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons in the Monstrous Manual (1993).[3]


A vegepygmy is created when a humanoid is slain by russet mold, the victim's body transforming into a new creature.


Typical physical characteristics[edit]

Although made of plant material, the vegepygmy, or "mold man," is humanoid in shape (though only three feet tall) and somewhat intelligent.


A vegepygmy is usually neutral.


Vegepygmies keep pets called "thornies", which are shaped like dogs but are really plant creatures as well.
