39 For an unusual adventure, how about a short, fat baron who requires the skeletons of three humanoids for his personal Laundromagic? He’s offering quite a reward. The only problem is that the three must match his height and build exactly Alternatively, the adventurers could be hired to investigate the strange disappearance of people from a town (or bodies from a graveyard) only to discover that their skeletons were being incorporated into Laundromagics.

Above this is another metal spiral positioned above a grilling tray, which in turn is held by a mounting attached to the base. In the base is a door, which opens onto a small area rather like a safe.
