18 ROOM OF THE MAGIC BRICK. Two gargoyles abide here.
2 Gargoyles (AC 5; MV 9”/15”; HD 4+4; hp 16, 27; #AT 2 claws, 1 horn, and 1 tail; D 1-3/1-3/1-6/1-4; SD Magic weapon to hit; XP 245, 300)
A large clay brick, two feet per side, hangs suspended in the air about four feet above the ground in the center of the room. Three large open windows are in the west wall.
If the brick is hit or prodded with any significant force, a gold maban will pop out of the top. Up to 20 gold mabans will appear. If hit again the brick will turn into an iron block (although it will remain levitating in the air!) and a large green mushroom will grow out of the top.
The mushroom is magic and walks around on tiny feet at a rate of 3”. The first person to take a bite of it will benefit by being completely restored to life the next time they are reduced to 0 hit points or below, as if under a resurrection spell effect. This special effect requires no resurrection survival roll and does not count against the number of times, based on initial constitution score, that a person may be resurrected. Anyone resurrected in this way is also restored to full hit points and cured of any diseases, insanities, or other ailments they may have acquired. If they were killed in a dangerous area (for example quicksand or the inside of a purple worm) they will instead reappear in a nearby safe place.
