Small wooden chest

Category:
container
Description:

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.

Bio:

Still unknown…
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.
