#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 8, Room 29

 The cave continues. Further ahead is an open area. There is what appears to be a broken stone throne. 

Room 29

This appears to be the queen's throne room, but it appears to have been destroyed. There is subtle magic on the throne. 

If a dwarf or female character sits on the throne a scene is played out of the throne room in it's glory days. All the PCs see dwarven courtiers with gnome, human, and even elven dignitaries. All enjoying themselves as scenes through the years are shown. One scene shows what appears to be an informal gathering interrupted as the figure of the Vampire Queen comes into the room ridding on the back of some demonic hell-beast. Demons soon overrun the room and kill everyone in sight.

Characters must save vs. Paralysis or feel the death shock of those victims. Failing, they take 2d6 hp of damage, save for half.

Characters gain 45 xp each for seeing this scene.

If a female dwarf sits on the throne, then she sees the same tableau, but does not need to make a save and she takes no damage. She also gains The Blessing of the Dwarf Queen for the remainder of this level. This is a +1 to hit and +1 to all saves.
