Myconoids have the ability to more completely metabolize corpses by
extending nearly-microscopic filaments from their bodies into a corpse
that spread throughout the flesh, excreting highly vitriolic bile and
absorbing the resulting slurry.  The level of the myconoid determines
their proficiency with this process and allows them to digest for
longer periods of time.  While digesting, myconoids have an accelerated
rate of healing.  Moving away from the corpse will break the process.

There is a small chance that the digestion process will cause
mushrooms to sprout from the corpse being consumed.  This is how
myconoids reproduce, and these mushrooms may detach and follow the
myconoid as loyal offspring for a time.
