106 SOUTHWEST TOWER. This room can be reached by going up the stairs located in Room 53 or Area 57 of the Second Floor. This place is inexplicably lit by a dull red glow and the floor is red sand. This room is actually about 20 feet above the rest of the Third Floor, to accommodate the sandy floor, therefore the adventurers will probably note this as a long climb. The adventurers will notice that the ceiling is ridiculously high, about 80 feet. The walls are dressed stone and there are no windows.
The sand goes down all 20 feet, and buried just beneath the surface are twenty three skeletons armed with scimitars and round metal shields. Each skeleton is painted rust red and has a metal spike sticking out of its forehead. The skeletons will only animate and attack if the party steps into the room and they are scattered unevenly about. The skeletons can attack the same round they emerge and surprise on a 1-4.
23 Skeletons (AC 7; MV 12"; HD 1; hp 7 each; #AT 1; D 1-6; SA Surprise on a 1-4; SD Sharp weapons score half damage only, limited spell immunity; XP 21 each)
