The Dustmen Worship A Giant Gobot Named 'Dumper'
KT, I dunno about xp, I haven't calculated it yet. It usually comes at the end of an adventure, not right here in the middle of a room.
Dag, not really any great way to keep the door shut. The only thing in the room is a bunch of dead bodies. Plus, inactive spiderbot. You could try piling them up if you wanted.
I'll assume your recap is a question to the other PCs, not to me.
Thak, okay, you open the door.
(After searching the bodies. Three more straightrazors, each a bit different from the others. These things look homemade.)
Whoa. It opens into a giant room, lit from above and across the way (plus your own lantern light). The room is full of junk. Almost literally- this is basically a junkyard. A lot of the junk is in a big pile underneath a hole in the ceiling- maybe it gets dropped down here? Right by the largest pile is a huge... contraption.
After staring at it for several seconds, it looks a lot like Tut's spiderbot. Just, more like several meters tall. And around. It's a spindly brass... hell, it's sort of like one of those giant industrial robots used in car factories, crossed with the Hoth Iceplanet survey droid from the beginning of Empire Strikes Back. Got it?
It seems to be searching or sorting through the junk, slowly, with a jerky automatic grace.
So some of the light comes from this big hole above, about forty feet up, presumably in the heart of the DM Compound. The other light source is a small glowing candelabra on the other side of the room. You can see a little sketch posted above a shelf and an oddly-wide cot. Looks like a sketch of two little kids, one next to the other, but from the distance here, it's hard to make out details. There's some other stuff on the shelf, and looking carefully, sure enough...
You see a little tin crown.
The enormous gobot does not seem to register your presence- in the doorway, far from it.
