86D SHRINE. This room, like Room 86C and the others in the complex is carved from the surrounding rock. Four froglodytes are here.
3 Froglodytes (AC 5; MV 12”//15”; HD 3+2; hp 16, 15, 16; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite or 1 weapon; D 1-3/1-3/1-6 or by weapon +1 to damage due to strength; SA Steam breath for 2d6; XP 189, 185, 189)
Rana Edulian (AC 5; MV 12”//15”; HD 3; hp 13; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite or 1 weapon; D 1-2/1-2/1-4; SA Steam breath for 2d4, chant; XP 144)
Rana Edulian is only a wangateur in training. He is a little sickly so does less damage in melee. He prefers to hang back and let the others fight for him, chanting. He wears a golden hat with three feathers stuck in it (250 gold crescents). None of the froglodytes are armed.
The altar in the northeast corner looks a bit like a sink. It is cursed so any water poured in it becomes unholy. It has golden fittings that would be worth 600 gold crescents if removed. Such a task would require about a turn using appropriate equipment (such as a crowbar), or about three times as long with a sharp weapon such as a dagger.
The altar holds blood and bits of tissue in its basin. Above the altar there is a dirty mirror, which is actually a secret door. It spins on a central axis and allows access to the passage beyond, which leads to Area 87Q.
