27 UNDERSECRETARY'S ROOM. The door to this room is barred from the inside. This modest bedroom has its walls painted in dull red and blue vertical stripes. There is a desk against the east wall. Sitting at the desk is a dried out corpse wearing a black uniform. A dresser and a bed are near the west wall. Several small, high windows are in the south wall. They are shuttered so no light from the garden can be seen.
The corpse is the undersecretary. He wears a silver necklace valued at 25 gold crescents, but the body is inhabited by three cadaver spiders that will attack if the body is disturbed.
3 Cadaver Spiders (AC 7; MV 9”; HD 1-4 hit points; hp 4, 3, 3; #AT 1 bite; D 1-4; SA Pain; XP 11, 10, 10)
On the desk is a dried out bottle (it used to contain poison). There is normal ink, quill pens, and several ledgers containing inventory lists of supplies ordered for the castle.
The dresser holds clothing and uniforms. There is a false back to the top drawer and in the hidden space are 42 silver spanners. Several large hats are on top of the dresser.
