47 ROOM OF THE GNEEDE. This room smells foul with waste and rotting meat. It is the home of a strange bipedal creature which resembles an oversized lizard crossed with a camel.
The Gneede (AC 5; MV 15”; HD 5+3; hp 28; #AT 2 claws; D 1-8/1-8; SA Spitting; Size L; XP 393).
The gneede spits as a skung lizard. If it hits its target the victim must save versus dragon breath or be blinded for 1-4 turns.
This creature preys on the nearby yvarts, but hates the way they taste. There is a fair amount of incidental treasure among the partially devoured body parts of yvarts, men, and animals: 24 gold crescents, 88 silver spanners, 163 copper pieces, a silver locket worth 10 silver spanners and holding a pill which duplicates the effect of a potion of extra-healing (navy blue, tastes like a blueberry), and a scroll in a bone tube holding the illusionist spells continual darkness and invisibility, 10' radius. The stairs go down twenty feet to Room 37 on Level 2.
