40 GOVERNESS' ROOM. The door to this room is locked. This is the home of Maria Tyus, a werewolf, formerly a governess whose job it was to take care of several of the Triskelion children.
Maria Tyus, Werewolf (AC 5; MV 15”; HD 4+3; hp 19; #AT 1; D 2-8; SA Surprise on 1-3; SD Silver or magic weapon to hit; XP 300)
She will be in her human form when first encountered, wearing a purple dress and leather shoes. She will either attack immediately or attempt to convince the party that she needs to be rescued depending upon how the party initially reacts to her. If accepted by the party, she will turn on them when they are in the middle of a combat or in some other difficult position. Maria carries a purse with 7 copper pieces, 2 gold crescents, and the key to her room.
There is a bed with purple sheets, a wardrobe, four lit candelabras with purple candles, a small table in the center of the room, and a large chest near the east wall.
The wardrobe holds a change of bedclothes and numerous dresses (most are purple, Maria's favorite color). The table holds cheese, wine, eating utensils, dishes, and a small oil lamp.
The chest holds more clothing, extra shoes, extra candles, flint and steel, lamp oil, and an elaborate wooden jewelery box worth 18 gold crescents. The jewelry box holds silver earrings (worth 5 silver spanners each), a pearl necklace (125 gold crescent value), and four identical silver necklaces (worth 25 gold crescents each). Maria refuses to wear the silver jewelry anymore because of the pain it causes her.
The room has wood paneled walls and numerous portraits of Maria's relatives. The wooden floor is decorated with a tan and purple woven rug.
Note that if Maria is somehow cured of lycanthropy she will revert to her normal lawful neutral alignment.
