Collection of Curiosities: The Gazebo

"Jiro the Kobold" by Pat LoboykoA gazebo is a curiosity of sorts, and some seek to assign more danger to it than might exist. Why not you? Or perhaps go for frivolous fun. The options are many. You can roll randomly for a result below, 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. What’s really interesting about this gazebo is that it is surrounded by several smaller gazebos that might be able to handle your foot. Foot-sized gazebos. Do they grow?
  2. The vines that cling to the gazebo each feature many white flowers that sprinkle a substance resembling blood when the breeze blows through them.
  3. Pinned to the outside of the gazebo is a sign stating these words: “Thou shalt not transgress against this gazebo.”
  4. The gazebo is painted a black so deep that it seems to eat light.
  5. The flock of pink flamingoes around the gazebo rush at you, furious at your intrusion upon their domain.
  6. Whispered conversations sound out around the gazebo, yet you see nobody. Curious how one of these whispers seems to follow you around well after you’ve left the area and is telling you about your forthcoming doom in a sultry and dark tone.
  7. The gazebo gets up on its legs and wanders away when you approach.
  8. A ring of gnomes surrounds the gazebo, chanting in a tongue unknown to you. Inside, a gnome statue starts to glow with a blue-green light. It blinks.
  9. The area surrounding the gazebo changes abruptly the moment you step inside. Where are you now?
  10. Someone cut out chains of tiny paper people and strung them around the gazebo. Some of these people have no legs, and some have no heads. All have little red splotches on them denoting wounds, perhaps.
  11. Your perspective shifts and those who were standing in the gazebo with you are suddenly standing within YOU. You are very, very hungry, and these people seem like such yummy little morsels.
  12. A soft light enters the gazebo, illuminating it at all times of the day. A soft purple pillow awaits your weary body. This looks like a very peaceful place to rest.

  1. 13. The gazebo is a pile of splinters and pebbles. A band of adventurers lie in the remains, exhausted from the battle. Only the barbarian remains standing, his armour caked in sweat and dust. With a final effort he swings his battle axe and smashes the last balustrade down. “Victory!” he screams.
