23 THE VAT CHAMBER. Two cellar dwellers are tending the vats and vat media with metal sticks equivalent to quarterstaves.
2 Cellar Dwellers (AC 6; MV 9”; HD 2; hp 13, 7; #AT 2 claws or 1 weapon; D 1-4/1-4 or quarterstaff; SA Ink; XP 54, 42)
The ceiling height is ten feet. Six vats are against the north wall, each with a metal lid. Numerous pipes extend into the wall. There are open barrels containing mult-hued sludge. This is vat media, a substance that provides nutrients to growing vat creatures and can also be used as a food source by mature vat creatures.
Opening the vats reveals vat media and the unformed and nonviable bodies of six additional cellar dwellers, in various states of completion.
