37 THAT FUNKY MONKEY. The archway to this room has a monkey's head carved upon the keystone. The altar near the west wall holds a small gleaming monkey idol. The walls are decorated with dozens of tiny clay monkey masks, each just shy of three feet off the floor.
The monkey idol is brass and all but worthless. If the adventurers check it out, three yvarts will open the one-way secret door in the south wall, throw their javelins, close the door, and run away. The secret door has a hidden spyhole that the yvarts use to investigate intruders, this matches up to one set of monkey's eyes in one of the clay masks.
The yvarts are experienced at this attack and there is a 5 in 6 chance they will be able to surprise the party. If they do surprise, they should be able to open the door, throw their javelins, and close the door.
Of course, there is a possibility that the adventurers will search the area for secret doors first. If the yvarts think they will be discovered, they will flee to warn the others in Room 40.
3 Male Yvarts (AC 7; MV 6”; HD 1-1; hp 6, 2, 4; #AT 1; D Javelin or horseman's flail; SA Surprise on 1-5; XP 20, 16, 18)
Each yvart has 0-9 (1d10-1) copper pieces and 0-5 (1d6-1) silver crescents. Behind the secret door are seven extra javelins and twenty one brass monkey idols.
