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\$ – sebsmith Apr 8 '11 at 3:04

  • \$\begingroup\$ Looks like thats the answer- mentioned in passing but never really revisited as an NPC. \$\endgroup\$ – Rain Apr 8 '11 at 17:27


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.

    \$\begingroup\$ I like using headers for one word answers. I think it lends them a certain amount of gravitas. \$\endgroup\$ – Jadasc Apr 8 '11 at 21:03

  • \$\begingroup\$ Bolds, /h1s etc, are all quite handy for quick reference. Though Jadasc's H1 is rather... dense :) \$\endgroup\$ – Brian Ballsun-Stanton Apr 9 '11 at 5:09
  • \$\begingroup\$ Well, that ends it for certain. \$\endgroup\$ – Rain Apr 9 '11 at 8:37
