31 READING ROOM. A bizarre creature has made this room its den. This creature has the body of a crimson haired cat and has three green snakes heads growing from its neck where a normal cat head should be. The creature is an amalgamation and the heads and body attack and can be attacked separately, using different “to hit” scores.
Body of the Beast (AC 5; MV 15”; HD 3; hp 13 ; #AT 2 claws; D 1-6/1-6; XP 69)
3 Heads of the Beast (AC 5; MV 3”; HD 1; hp 6 each; #AT 1 bite; D 1-4; XP 16 each)
This creature is size M and the heads are long enough that they can each attack separate individuals. If the body is killed but some or all of the heads are still alive, they will detach as size S individual snakes (hence the 3” movement rate) and continue to fight. Adventurers attacking the beast will hit the body on a 1-3 on d6. On a 4, 5, or 6, one of the three heads is struck instead.
This room is attractively furnished with three comfortable upholstered chairs and and several small wooden tables. The walls are lined with bookshelves containing sensationalist and scandalous stories bound in leather. Hidden among them is a manual of quickness of action. Three large stained glass windows depict scenes of satyrs frolicking with nymphs.
