79 BLACK TOOTH BOSS. This is the dwelling of the tribal shaman and leader of the Black Tooth gnolls. She has two elite female gnoll bodyguards with her.

Scardros, Chaotic Evil female gnoll Shaman (AC 5; MV 9”; C4; hp 16; #T 1; D Dagger; SA Spell use, attacks as a 4 hit die monster, +1 to hit with thrown dagger; XP 270)

First Level Cleric Spells:
Cure Light Wounds (X2), Protection From Good

Second Level Cleric Spells:
Augury, Chant

She wears a hood made from the head of a giant weasel. She carries her holy symbol of Samech and four daggers. She keeps three vials of human blood for the Protection From Good spell, a set of black dragon bones for the Augury spell, and an enchanted glass eye in a small pouch on a belt loop. The glass eye can create food and water once per day when used by any cleric or shaman, exactly as the third level cleric spell.

2 Black Tooth Gnoll Female Bodyguards (AC 5; MV 9”; HD 2; hp 10, 11; #AT 1; D Broad sword or dagger +1 to damage due to strength; SA +1 to hit with thrown dagger; XP 48, 50)

Each gnoll has 2-12 (2d6) gold crescents, 2-16 (2d8) silver spanners, and 2-24 (2d12) copper pieces. They each carry a broad sword and three daggers.

Scardros keeps the treasure in this room. There are three chests and an iron box.

First Chest:
84 silver spanners
27 copper rings, each worth 1 gold crescent (one of the rings is actually a ring of shooting stars)

Second Chest:
4 silver goblets worth 80 gold crescents each
24 gold crescents

Third Chest:
Trapped with a poison needle (insinuative, type B).
1342 copper pieces
3 silver whistles valued at 4 gold crescents each

The iron box is locked. The gnolls haven't figured out how to open it and haven't smashed it so far. It is a specially made shock-proof container holding four potions in vials. There is a potion of treasure finding (black, tastes metallic), a potion of clairvoyance (orange, tastes like carrot juice), a potion of speed and flying (mixed together successfully, two doses, purple, tastes like cherries), and a ruined potion with no effect (gold, tastes like caramel).

If the iron box is deliberately smashed open the potions are sure to break. However when the box is closed, it allows the potions inside to make saving throws as though they were “Metal, hard”, page 80 of the Dungeon Master's Guide. The box can hold up to six potions.

The room is otherwise furnished as a bedroom. Although they are considered lavish by the standards of the Black Tooth gnolls, the furnishings are about the same in quality as those found in a single room in a modest inn.
