The Lair of the Resurrected Bull-King
A tomb built to be the resting place for the Bull-King. The name suggests the Bull-King is not at rest.
1) Down a set of steps is a pitch black room wherein sit 2d6 goblins complaining about the smell of the place and the sparse accommodations.
2) A rat adventurer lies dead here, half-burnt torch on the ground beside it. The corpse is in an advanced yet halted state of decay, mummified by the dry air. On its body is a dirk and purse containing 4d6gp. On the wall to the south is a small slot. If a gold coin is inserted a hidden door opens.
3) In the center of the room is a fountain in the shape of a cow standing akimbo, cold, clear water spouting from its udders. Upon drinking the water, it turns to the following after it passes the lips. 1d6: 1) poison, 2) cola, 3) dust, 4) stew, 5) fur, 6) milk. To the south is a door barred with a padlocked chain.
4) A secret passage wherein lurks a single lonely ghoul.
5) The abode of the Bull-King. It reclines on a chaise lounge sipping bubbling brown milk from a cheap tin goblet by lantern-light. It wears a golden crown with a little set of horns on top that match its own. If someone else wears the crown they become the Bull-King.
