87 NICOLA'S ANTECHAMBER. The door to this room is capable of being locked but is not. Rooms 87 and 88 were the home of Nicola Triskelion, an experienced dog-breeder and the older sister of Santiago. Where Santiago was mild, Nicola was of a fiery temper and her choice of pets reflect that. This room communicates freely with Room 88 and any of the three monstrous canines that live here may be in either room (50% chance each), although the shadow mastiff will always be in this room during the day due to its fewer windows.

Hell Hound (AC 4; MV 12”; HD 4; hp 20; #AT 1 bite; D 1-10; SA Breathe fire (1 hp/HD), surprise on 1-4; SD Only surprised on a 1, see invisible (50%); XP 230)

Shadow Mastiff (AC 6; MV 18” (9” in bright light); HD 4 (-1 hp/die in bright light); hp 20 or 16 in bright light; #AT 1 bite; D 2-8; SA Baying causes panic; SD Hide in shadows; XP 265) 

Zombie Dire Wolf (AC 7; MV 12”; HD 4; hp 20; #AT 1 bite; D 2-8; SA Always lose initiative; SD Limited spell immunity; XP 165)

The zombie wolf may be turned, destroyed, or influenced by a cleric, but only results that would affect at least 5 normal zombies are effective. For example, the cleric must still roll a '5' or higher on 1d12 in order to effect the wolf. Thus, clerics of 9th level or higher, who roll 1d6+6, will automatically succeed.

There are three large stained glass windows to the north. They depict a large gray wolf, a black mastiff, and a huge red hound. Because the windows are stained glass, the room will not have the equivalent of 'bright light' for purposes of the shadow mastiff's statistics even on a sunny day.

The walls are paneled in wood and the panels are decorated with carvings of dogs fighting and hunting. The room has two large candelabras, but they are not lit.

There are four huge dog bowls. One holds live worms, the second holds spiderwebs, the third holds coal, and the last holds clean water. As long as they stay in this room, the bowls will magically refill themselves if emptied.
