d30 Challenge: Entry 5

d30 Gonzo Encounters Suitable for
Dungeon Sandbox Crawling Exploration

05. Forty-five animated halfling skeletons dance around the corpse of an immense owlbear, chattering and hollering and banging rusty swords on rusty bucklers. If their dance is interrupted, there is a 45% chance the undead owlbear will rise and attack the skeletons and any nearby PC. If the skeletons are allowed to complete their ritual (which will take 1d6 minutes), the corpse's flesh will melt in a flash of magical fire and the owlbear's skeleton will rise and lead the skeletons in attacking the PCs. One of the bucklers is a Buckler +2 Against Animated Undead Attacks.
