7 READING ROOM. A comfortable chair and matching ottoman are in the center of the room. Sitting on the chair and reading a book is a particularly vile undead entity.
The Green Man, Restless Dead (AC 9; MV 12”; HD 6+3; hp 29; #AT 2; D 1-4/1-4; SA Cold touch for 1-4; SD Limited spell immunity; XP 747).
It has taken corporeal form resembling a brown-green man with empty black voids where its eyes should be. The Green Man is immune to cold and mind-influencing spells such as hold, sleep, and charm but can be turned as a special undead creature. It attacks with two claw-like hands for 1-4 points of damage each round, and anyone struck by this horrible creature must save versus magic or suffer an additional 1-4 points of cold damage. Attacking the Green Man causes pieces of putrid-smelling flaky flesh to fly off and when it is reduced to 0 hit points it will collapse into disgusting paste, which will turn to foul smelling smoke and then dissipate.
The book is an incredibly long novel written in the Gothic style and is worth 2 silver spanners to a collector. A fireplace is in the west wall and a bear rug is on the floor. There is also a candelabra with yellow candles which smell of bergamot.
