Dungeon Dressing: A Dead Adventurer!

Few sights are more mixed in their reception than the discovery of a dead adventurer, for on the one hand, to the jaded, it promises the possibility of treasure, but on the other, it represents the potential fate that awaits every delver. And then there’s the question of what caused the adventurer’s demise in the first place. The wise explorer always thinks of the cause of death before the value of treasure. A certain tribe of Gnolls in the northlands has taken to planting nests of poisonous arachnids on the corpses of fallen adventurers in hopes of gaining more victims and loot, though the efficacy of this practice has been somewhat degraded by overuse.

Having the odd dead adventurer or two strung up like scarecrow or marionettes really puts the willies up players. ;)

There's one thing worse than finding a dead adventurer and that's a half-eaten dead adventurer. ;)
