M RAT BASTARD. This chamber holds three brown ratkin.
Sarlomew, Brown Ratkin, Bastard son of King Trewkins (AC 5; MV 18”// 6”; HD 4; hp 21; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite; D 2-5/2-5/1-4; SA Disease; Size M; XP 169)
Fink and Slink, Brown Ratkin Flunkies (AC 6; MV 12”//6”; HD 2; hp 11, 7; #AT 1 bite; D 1-4; SA Disease; XP 50, 42)
Sarlomew appears somewhat like other brown ratkin, but has an elongated body, overly prognathic face, and long tail, giving the appearance of a snake-like creature. He has four pairs of legs, and uses the front pair to attack with, but it is his bite only that can cause disease.
Sarlomew is a by-blow of the king and not in direct line of succession. He plots to kill his siblings and father and take over the rat kingdom. He lacks a strong following, however, and is backed almost exclusively by Fink and Slink, to whom he has promised high posts if he should become king.
Sarlomew will be loathe to fight, because he does not want to waste his life defending the warrens and his estranged father. Instead, he will try to convince the party to fight on his behalf. Specifically he will ask that they kill the royal family. He can provide directions to the King's court, Room X. If he can convince the characters to take out the king, he will follow them from a distance and try to ambush them after the battle, assuming they will have been weakened sufficiently for him to defeat them. He is a treacherous vermin, but actually quite cunning.
