36 WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE. Three bugbears are here. Two are throwing hand axes at a gnome strapped to a spinning wheel mounted on the west wall. The third sits on a chair whittling a statue out of a great hunk of white soap. A female human is tied up and is lying down in the southeast corner of the room.

Bugbear 1 (AC 5; MV 9”; HD 3+1; hp 9; #AT 1; D Long sword or hand axe +1 due to strength; SA Surprise on a 1-3; XP 171)22 gold crescents and 16 copper pieces

Bugbear 2 (AC 5; MV 9”; HD 3+1; hp 18; #AT 1; D Battle axe or hand axe +1 due to strength; SA Surprise on a 1-3; XP 207) 12 gold crescents, 6 silver spanners, and 3 copper pieces 

Bugbear 3 (AC 5; MV 9”; HD 3+1; hp 16; #AT 1; D Morning star or dagger +1 due to strength; SA Surprise on a 1-3; XP 199) 7 gold crescents, 10 silver spanners, and 19 copper pieces

The bugbears' clothing is very baggy and looks uncomfortable. It is striped in green and purple. They wear caps in the same colors. They will throw their hand axes or dagger before closing for melee, should there be combat.

Barlow Bindingburg, Chaotic Evil male gnome Fighter (AC 10; MV 6”; F3; hp 9, #AT 1; D By weapon; S 10, I 15, W 11, D 13, C 14, Ch 9; XP 96)

Barlow is securely tied on the brightly painted purple and green spinning wheel. He has been sick and smells of vomit. Seven hand axes already stick out of the wooden wheel, some missing him by a hairsbreadth. If freed, Barlow will act grateful, but he is rotten to the core and will turn on any rescuers at an opportune moment. The bugbears have taken his weapons, armor, equipment and money. He is dressed in purple and green, like the bugbears.

Lucy, Chaotic Good female human Ranger (AC 8; MV 12”; R4; hp 31, #AT 1; D By weapon; SA +4 to damage vs giant class humanoids, surprise on a 1-3; SD Surprised only on a 1; S 13, I 14, W 15, D 16, C 17, Ch 16; XP 285)

The bugbears plan to string Lucy up to the wheel after Barlow dies. Lucy is very short and slight for a human (4'6” tall) and dislikes being reminded about it. She is very headstrong and opinionated but extremely loyal. If freed she will help her rescuers however she can. The bugbears have also taken her weapons, armor, equipment, and cash. They have also dressed her in purple and green clothing.

A barrel holding fourteen hand axes is near the two throwing bugbears. A bell hangs from the ceiling near the southwest corner. It will ring if the trap in Corridor 35 is activated. The stairs lead up 25 feet to Room 44 on Level Two of the Upper Dungeons.
