33C PIANO ROOM. As this room is entered, the characters will hear piano music coming from the grand piano located in the room. The music is not audible outside the room, so some characters may stand outside the room and hear nothing while others stand just inside the room and hear the music.
The music is cheerful at first, slowly becoming more somber until at the end it is absolutely discordant with jarring violent notes before going suddenly quiet.
If the piano is closely inspected, the piano keys will start oozing blood. After about a minute the blood will coalesce into an ill-defined humanoid figure.
The Blood Man, Restless Dead (AC 4; MV 9”; HD 6; hp 34; #AT 1; D 1d8; SA Choking; SD Limited spell immunity, regeneration; XP 704)
The Blood Man is immune to spells which affect undead. He attacks by forcing his hand into the throat of a victim, causing 1d8 choking damage each round. After making his first "to hit" roll he will not need to roll to hit again until either he is destroyed or his opponent is killed. The Blood Man regenerates 2 hit points per round as long as he is within a foot of the piano, as the oozing blood replenishes his form.
Within the piano is a desiccated corpse, totally drained of blood. It appears to be the body of a young nobleman. His long blond wavy hair is decorated with 6 golden ringlets (100 gold crescents each) and his earrings are gold (50 gold crescents each). His belt buckle is gold (150 gold crescents) and decorated with the name 'Hugo' but it is bad luck, anyone who possesses it makes saving throws at -1.
