No-Key the Mushroom King was originally a canon NPC from 1st edition Exalted in the book Creatures of the Wild; notably, he was the only person to have defeated Octavian the Living Tower (a 2nd Circle Demon). No-Key was immortal thanks to a fountain created by a River God and is covered with fungus growths due to prolonged exposure to the 3rd circle spell Curse of Mists.

I have not been able to find any reference to him in 2nd edition Exalted. Does anyone know if he appears in any of the official sourcebooks? Preferably with updated stats.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Given that the wiki has no mention of him, I'd guess not. Do you want me to ask on the forum for you? \$\endgroup\$

As reported on the Exalted wiki, this character from Creatures of the Wyld — as of May 31, 2009 — had not been updated to Second Edition.
