Fancy Lad Adventures

The vault
Storm Tower

The iron doors part loudly, drawing you into a great vault illuminated by stone-rimmed wells of belching fire. At the far end of the vault, broad steps climb 15 feet to a platform supporting two stone sarcophagi and a pair of braziers. Statues of armored warriors stand at the base of the steps, to either side of which is a raised gallery 20 feet above the floor.

Zombie Yellowskull bandits stand silent in the vault, reeking of death. Behind them, at the top of the stairs, a human wearing a golden mask shaped like a skull limps forward, drawing a crimson orb from the folds of his black robe. His voice is hollow and hateful. “This tomb will be yours unless you leave, now.”

Skull Cauldron (skull-dron?)
Storm Tower

The centerpiece of this 20-foot-high room is a monstrous stone cauldron nearly 5 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter. Black, fetid tar fills the cauldron to the brim. Surrounding it are seven piles of goblin skulls. Each pile contains skulls painted a specific color.

Four statues depicting elf warriors and human warriors stand atop daises in the corners of the room. Fifteen-foot high iron doors stand closed to the south.

The cauldron belches, and suddenly two blackened corpses rise up out of the tar, their eyes filled with hate.

Tossing a black skull, a gold skull, and a purple skull into the cauldron causes the iron doors to open.
