4C. Slack’s Room
This room contains an unmade bed, a small trunk, and a chair with a broken leg.
The bed is covered in dried blood; the hay inside the mattress is still slightly damp, too. There are bloody footprints all over the floor and bloody handprints on the walls. The chair’s back is covered with bloody handprints as well, and the broken leg seems to be recent, as splinters are scattered on the floor beneath it.
The trunk is unlocked and is also covered in bloody handprints. The clothes inside are spotted with blood.
On the top of the clothes, wrapped in a burlap sack, are three bottles of Dr. Charnaw’s Fortified Gitterup Syrup™. The label reveals it is a cure for male impotence and “all around sluggardness”. Two of the bottles are open, and a close inspection will reveal that one of them is infused with cabbage and beet seeds.
Wrapped up in sackcloth at the bottom of the trunk is what seems to be a dead baby with a red cabbage for a head. If any PC picks up the baby, it will immediately begin wailing at the top of its lungs and attempt to nurse. It has six rows of razor-sharp teeth and is highly agile.
Feeding baby cabbage head the Gitterup Syrup™ will have no effect.
