19 DINING HALL. Loud, almost maniacal laughing erupts from this torchlit room. Many Triskelion vat men are seated about a long table graced with tea sets and baked goods.
There are seven laughing Triskelions and two crying Triskelions. One scowling Triskelion is here, tied to a chair.
7 Laughing Triskelions (AC 6 (8); MV 12"; HD 3; hp 23, 21, 18, 16, 15, 15, 14; #AT 1; D Long sword X5, short sword X1, two-handed sword X1; SA Berserk, never surprise; XP 104, 98, 89, 83, 80, 80, 77)
2 Crying Triskelions (AC 6; MV 12"; HD 3; hp 14, 15; #AT 1; D Quarter staff; XP 77, 80)
1 Scowling Triskelion (AC 6; MV 12"; HD 3; hp 17; #AT 1; D By weapon type; XP 86)
The laughing Triskelions are having a wonderful time, singing and toasting with their hot tea. They have put aside their quarrels with the other Triskelions for the moment. The crying Triskelions are sitting quietly and casting glances at the exits, hoping to escape. This is not for fear of their lives but because they find it intolerable that the laughing Triskelions can find such happiness while it eludes them. The scowling Triskelion is yelling curses loudly at the laughing Triskelions, his plate of food untouched before him.
The laughing Triskelions will greet any adventurers and invite them to have tea with them. Whether they agree or not is unimportant to the laughing Triskelions who will continue their merriment. Because of the noise, double chances for wandering monsters while adventurers remain in the room interacting with the vat men.
The crying Triskelions still have their staffs, but will be too nervous to fight unless attacked first. The scowling Triskelion's weapon is missing, but he has 7 gold crescents in a small pouch.
The large amount of silverware and tea crockery are worth 150 gold crescents.
