#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 25

The hallway leads to another room. There is an opening on the right and one to the left.

Room 25

In this room are 3 Giant Pythons.

How they got here is anyone's guess, but they attack the party as soon as they enter. They do not have any treasure.

The opening to the right leads back to Room #12. The opening to the left leads on to the rest of the level.

Today's monster comes to you because I needed to reinstall Python 3.11.2 on my computer for work.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 24

Further down the hall there is a cell to your left. 

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 24

This cell is filled with a thick green haze/mist. Visibility, including dark vision and infravision, is reduced to 1 foot. 

After 1 round the mist will start to poison the PCs.  They must make a saving throw vs. Poison or be rendered unconscious. Any unconscious PC will loose 1 point of Con every turn until they are taken out of the mist. Any character reduced to 0 Con dies.  An unconscious character will revive in 1 turn and be back at normal Con with 1 hour of rest per Con lost.

I the character makes the save, their Con loss is 1 point per hour. These characters will regain Con at the rate of 1 point every 30 mins of rest.

There are three skeletal remains from previous victims here. They have 200 gp, 300 sp,  55 cp, five gems of 5 gp each, and a dagger +1.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 22

Returning to Room #20, the characters can now go to the right (previously left).  

Room 22

This hallway leads to a closed door. The door is not locked.  Inside is a circular chamber.  There is a door just like the one the PCs entered on the other side.

On the walls above the characters are 2 Gargoyles.  As soon as the PCs are all in the room, they will swoop down and attack.  

Behind a loose stone near their roosts is their treasure hoard.  There is C x2 treasure, as well as an additional 1,000 gp in assorted gems.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 21

Going straight takes the characters to a large room with wooden doors.  There is an eerie glow from the inside of the room.

Room 21

This is a storage chamber for various items needed to keep and feed the monsters here.  All the food is long gone, but there are a few normal weapons here as well as the following magical ones.

A sword +1 / +2 vs Lycanthropes.

A gem of light (casts light 3 times per day) This is causing the glow.

A shield +2

A dagger +1

A mace +1 / +2 vs Undead

Finding these items is worth 1,500 xp total.

This room is a dead end.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 20

This room is another semi-circular chamber, like Room #12. The room has a hallway to the left, and the hallway continues straight. 

Room 20

This room, like Room 12, shows signs of a recent battle. There is a dead orc here with a usable sword, non-magical. He has a pouch of 23 cp that his "killers" missed.  There is a poison dart in his neck.

The orc is lying on top of a trap trigger; this is what killed him. Moving the orc will trigger it again.

Finding the trap and disarming before it fires is worth 50xp. After it fires, it is only worth 0 xp.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 16

This room is down the hall and to the left.

Room 16

Inside this room is a Lesser Iron Golem. It is like an iron golem in all respects, but only has 4HD and it does 1d8+1 points of damage per hit.

It instructed to attack, the problem was it attacks everyone even its makers. So they left it here. 

There is double treasure type E scattered about the floor of this room.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 15

Continuing down the hallway there is another cell on the right (where the ghosts seemed to have been running too).

Room 15

This room also has two more Wraiths. They appear to be two adventurers in the process of looting a corpse. The corpse is now only old bones.

The wraiths will break their loop and attack the characters.

The skeleton has a rusted sword, tattered clothes, and a dagger in its back.  There is a bag with 15 gp in it.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 14

Continuing down the hallway, you see two figures leaving the cell on the left.

Ghosts from Cell #14

The figures are two Wraiths and they are leaving the cell, as they have done 1000 times since they died. They are vaguely humanoid. One appears to be a male fighter and the other a female wizard or cleric.

When they spot the PCs they will attack.

There is a small hoard of treasure in Cell #14. Items from previous victims. They used to be adventurers themselves but are now dead.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 12

 Continuing on the hallway opens up to a large semi-circular chamber.  The hallway continues on beyond the chamber and there is another hallway to the right.

There are no bodies and no treasure.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 11

Continuing down this hallway, there is another cell on the right.

Cell 11

The door to this cell is open. Inside are three Zombies. Two are visible in the center of the cell, and the other is propped up against the wall and blends in.

The first two will attack per normal, the other will not attack until the characters are within arm's reach (5 ft).  The third zombie is the experiment, it has a bit more intelligence and cunning for an undead corpse and can move faster. It surprises on a roll of 3 or less on a d6 and can attack at any point with its initiative rolls.  It attacks as a 3HD monster and has the respective XP.

The zombies have no treasure.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 10

This cell is around the corner on the right. The cell door on the right is open and inside is a glowing portal. 

Cell 10

Standing in the room is a human woman. She has two crystals in one hand and is furiously writing notes. She speaks to the party very excitedly, but her language is unknown. She ignores whatever the party says to her; she is too excited about whatever it is she writing. 

She is really only interested in this portal. She has no treasure to mention. If she is attacked she jumps through the portal and runs off.

If the characters follow, the portal will close behind. Take the character sheets from the players and hand them their new Castles & Crusades character sheets for the same characters.

 This cell is locked and boarded up.  Movement can be heard inside. There are two doors here, the cell and the doors behind it.

Room 7, Level 7

Inside this room is an ancient and immortal Grimlock. The Grimlock is very old and blind. The magical experiments done on him have made him immortal, hungry, and insane. It will attack as long as there is no light greater than torchlight.

#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 6

 This cell, just down the passageway and on the right, has an eerie glow inside.

Level 3, Room 6

The glow comes from somewhere inside the cell but it is difficult tell exactly where. Everywhere the characters look for it seems to be somewhere else.

There are no monsters in this cell and the glow is from the pervasive magic in this area.
