12 PRISON. The door to this room is capable of being locked, but is not. Five men are here, wearing chain mail armor and great helms. Fat gray worms writhe from the vertical slits of their visors.
5 Worm Face Cultists (AC 5; MV 9"; F2; hp 10, 12, 9, 12, 13; #AT 1; D Scimitar; SD Only surprised on a 1, see invisible; XP 65, 71, 62, 71, 74)
These men are devotees of the Gray Worm and have received the kiss of the worm god. As a result, their facial features above the mouth have been replaced by worms. They are immune to blindness and are extremely sensitive to air currents, thus they can “see” invisible objects and are rarely surprised. They are away from the temple because they are searching for a thief who has stolen cult treasure.
Each carries between 7 and 12 (1d6+6) small gold cylinders, each equivalent in value to a gold crescent. In addition, each has a small silver holy symbol of the worm god on a chain around their neck. These appear to be worth 10 gold crescents each, but are cursed. If placed around the neck, they cause blindness in 1d4 rounds unless a saving throw vs poison is made.
None of the cells are locked. A secret door in the northeast cell leads to the ladder that connects to Area 5 of The Sewers of the Inner Ward, thirty five feet up. The worm face cultists are ignorant about its existence.
