Spores (Ex): Circle leaders have access to distress, reproduction, rapport, pacification, and hallucination spores (save DC 15 where applicable).

Skills and Feats (Ex): A myconid gains skills and feats as though it were a fey. A myconid of any kind has EHD as though it were a Tiny plant.

Circle leaders join battle only if doing so seems necessary to keep their underlings from being slaughtered. In combat, they use their hallucination spores at the first opportunity. Like other myconids, they prefer to avoid melee combat altogether but can use their slams if they must.
