Collection of Curiosities: The Urn

Those of you who are extremely thorough in searching areas might end up looking at an urn in a catacomb or other location. But dare you search it? What can happen? Let’s find out. 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. You see a shimmering, clean yellow robe made of the lightest silk. Runes skitter across it and vanish. It smells of musk and roses.
  2. The interior is empty except for some glowing mold. The mold reaches up toward you.
  3. The huge urn provides entrance to another part of the complex. You can tell because when you open it up, the interior lights up and shows you a landing about 20 ft. below the top of the urn. Someone’s fancy boots are on this landing.
  4. Why would someone put mothballs into an urn? And why are they now springing out of the urn as if by their own volition?
  5. Bubbles float upward, and each one contains an item that you remembering coveting in dreams you had once forgotten—until now. You feel a strong urge to pop each bubble to see if you can acquire the item.
  6. Apparently, lamps are the only things djinn can inhabit.
  7. You see your own severed head sitting on a pile of ash within this large urn.
  8. A golden velvet bag rests on a pile of coins. If the bag is taken, the coins disappear. If a coin is taken, the bag disappears.
  9. Several false mustaches of varying colors are stuck to the inside of this urn.
  10. Before you can open the urn, eyes open on the urn and blink at you. It then forms arms and legs and attempts to flee.
  11. You find keys of every size and shape.
  12. A simple razor blade, used for shaving, rests on a pile of ash. A single drop of fresh blood marrs the perfect sheen of the blade.
