Al Maghrib (OD&D 1974) exploration campaign
Chest of the Capybara
Small wooden chest
Small wooden chest. When you reach inside you discover the base is hollow. Further probing will cause you to touch something furry.
Dumping the contents out may cause 2-8 rodents to appear.
The rodents follow simple instructions from the chest owner.
the party fought 10 giant rodents. Later the party dwarf found the chest and discovered some contents. 5 more rodents were gathered from the chest.
During adventuring 3 of these were slain. So dumping the chest 5 more rodents arrived. Unfortunately, the chest came apart at the hinges. Another of the 7 remaining died. And so there are 6 left.
Abracus told the dwarf he could not repair it.
