50 LILA COTTON, MISBEGOTTEN. The walls of this room is decorated much the same as Room 49, except the male faces are diabolic with small horns and goatees, while the female faces are hags. A large stone sarcophagus, raised on a stone pediment is in the center of the room. Three chests are along the north wall and three more are along the south wall, evenly spaced and very tidy. The room itself is dusty and obviously has not seen use in many years.

The chests to the north hold coins: 400 Jalluxian copper galleons, 400 Jalluxian silver stars, and 400 Jalluxian gold dragons, respectively. The first chest to the south holds 400 gems, obsidian stones worth 1 gold crescent each. The next holds 400 gems, onyx stones worth 5 gold crescents each. The last holds preserved rose petals and a glass flask of rainbow swirling liquid. This is an unlabeled philter of love. It smells of exotic perfume but tastes of muddy water.

The sarcophagus has a very heavy stone lid, decorated with a bas-relief of a beautiful maiden in repose. Written along the edge of the rim of the sarcophagus is the following inscription:

Lila Cotton, misbegotten, had all the boys besotten. In the end she turned out rotten. She is dead but not forgotten”.

It will take a open doors roll from the strength table to move the lid. Within is a female wight who will, of course, attack.

Lila Cotton, Wight (AC 5; MV 12”; HD 4+3; hp 24; #AT 1; D 1-4; SA Energy drain; SD Silver or magic weapons to hit, limited spell immunity; XP 400)

The secret door to the east is a sliding wall type, activated by twisting a hag's nose. The secret door to the west is one way only, out of this room, activated by pushing in the horns (both at the same time) on one of the devil faces.
