#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 9, Room 8

 At the end of the hall of Room 7 is a large circular chamber. There is a large dark, circular pit in the center of the room.

Room 8

The floor of the ring slopes down and the center ring rises up four feet from the floor.

There is ancient writing on the surface of the center ring. The words, if anyone can speak Draconic, tell of an ancient creature, the Gravlok Ka Varnash.

The pit can be opened and the creature released if the rituals are followed on the side of the pit.

This creature is a mass of writhing tentacles. Each tentacle can attack on its own and hit a separate target. Doing 8 hp worth of damage destroys a tentacle.

The wizards here had been studying the creature until it ate too many apprentices.
