64 SUITE BEDROOM.  A carrion crawler occupies this room. The talon goblins occasionally put prisoners in here for the sake of amusement.

Carrion Crawler (AC 3/7; MV 12"; HD 3+1; hp 14; #AT 8 tentacles; D Paralysis; XP 636)

There is a fireplace in the south wall. The walls have the same red wallpaper as that in Room 63. The bed is large and comfortable. There are four plain glass windows which open on hinges. There is an alcove in the southeast.

Beneath the bed is an overlooked foot locker containing a bottle of vinegar labeled "potion of healing", a pair of boots of elvenkind, a small red felt bag containing 17 silver spanners, and a marble statue of a cockatrice worth 35 gold crescents.

The alcove in the southeast contains a shrine to an ancient evil god of unknown provenance. This portion of the room is unnaturally cold and will detect as Neutral Evil if a detection spell or device is used. The shrine itself is a marble platform with dozens of black candles and a small idol of an malformed humanoid figure. The idol is made of some strange green metal and appears slightly melted with runny features. It is cursed. Anyone who touches the idol must save versus spells or suffer -1 on "to hit" and saving throws for the next 1-4 days.

If anyone actually takes the idol out of the room, it will become heavier and heavier until they are unable to carry it. If the character states he or she wishes to return the idol to its shrine, they will be able to move it again, though it will still feel abnormally heavy until it is returned. If the idol is returned to the shrine, no further evil will occur. If the idol is not returned, but merely left somewhere, the offender will suffer a further curse, causing a loss of 2-5 strength points (to a minimum of 3) over the next 1-4 days. This effect will be permanent, until the idol is returned to its place or a heal, restoration, remove curse, wish, or alter reality is used.
