FUNGUS AMONG US
Imagine a race of intelligent creatures descended from spores and fungi.
Perhaps possible after a nuclear winter type situation from either nuclear holocaust or impact from a massive comet or asteroid.
Fungus doesnt need sunlight to exist, only the tissue of dead things.
Ascendant fungus based organisms feeding on a greater population of drone-class fungi, perhaps slime molds with little consciousness, but providing vast amounts of fungi grown only to supplement the greater organisms as a renewable resource.
Rapidly growing, aggressive tissue that can feed and spread unchecked in a world of suddenly dead things.
