Collection of Curiosities: Inside the Room of Silence

Gustav Dore - The RavenThe room around you has a silencing effect. What now-quiet items might you find within it, and what effects do they have when removed from the room? You can roll randomly for a result below, or use the handy number provided with each entry to figure out your result on a d12. You can also pick the one that works for the area in which your characters currently linger.

d12. Curiosity

  1. The flute plays the same song over and over again. Each note resonates within your head, causing pain.
  2. The windchimes move though no wind is present. The mellow sounds of their chimes bring back memories that make you ache with anguish and despair.
  3. The tiny little winged humanoid in the cage smiles at you and sings. And won’t stop.
  4. The music box plays a melody that creates deep lethargy within you.
  5. The rather dull gray rock vibrates. Over time, it shatters everything that is crafted from glass or crystal within 20 ft. of it.
  6. The drum is crafted from human and halfling parts. Every few seconds, a quick series of beats resonate outward, creating insatiable hunger in all those who hear the drum.
  7. The jar of insects contains iridescent purple dragonflies. Removing the jar from the room of silence allows you to hear individual voices, calling for help.
  8. The listless human female sleeping on a pillow in this room watches you with wary eyes. If taken out of the room, she starts wailing in a manner similar to a banshee.
  9. The book, when taken from the room, starts talking. It’s saying every negative thing you’ve ever thought about yourself.
  10. The crystalline bell, when removed from the room, rings out with one note even if stilled. Upon hearing it, you are beset by a panic attack.
  11. The bone necklace with teeth upon it chatters. You can hear a mix of languages and creature sounds emanating from it, but you never quite make out what creatures or even any of the words.
  12. The scroll repeats these words endlessly, “Seek out the Gilded Glade and place me upon the pedestal.”
