31N KARIUS AND BACTUS. This cave has the same pink walls as the surrounding tubes. Two curseback trolls lair here. These bizarre trolls suffer from deformities and grotesque distortions of their features and bone structure.
Karius (AC 5; MV 6”; HD 5+5; hp 31; #AT 1 claw and 1 bite; D 4-7/1-10; SD Regenerate (2 hp per round); MR 15%; XP 536)
Bactus (AC 5; MV 6”; HD 5+5; hp 27; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite; D 4-7/4-7/1-10; SA Stinking cloud; SD Regenerate (2 hp per round); MR 15%; XP 587)
One of Karius's arms is deformed and completely useless. Bactus has such horrid breath that he may breathe the equivalent of a stinking cloud spell once per encounter.
Among the foul rags and bones of their nest are 1324 gold crescents in a rotten leather bag and a short sword +2 in a special red lacquer scabbard that is itself magic and has the power to heal 1d4 hit points a day to its owner.
