Salt Mummy

Salt Mummies: Usually found in mausoleums and appearing as  bodies wrapped in spider silk in the fashion of mummies the touch of these mummies does not spread mummy rot, but rather drains the moisture from people (saving throw or lose 1d3 points of constitution; one point of constitution can be regained by drinking one gallon of water). Sewn into each mummy is a gold statuette worth 600 gp.

Mmmmm.... Methane *drool*

A few weeks ago, we received capital-N Notice that our local water authority has failed to do EPA-mandated testing for little things like lead and fecal matter for at least two years.

But at least it's not flammable.

Playbill reports that Qui Nguyen's She Kills Monsters, a comedy about us folks who play D&D, will open on November 17 at The Flea Theater.

The play focuses on Agnes who "is finally leaving her childhood home following the death of her totally weird sister, Tilly. When she stumbles upon Tilly's Dungeons & Dragons notebook; however, Agnes embarks on an action-packed adventure to discover more about her sister than she previously cared to know. A octane comedy fraught with hostile faeries, randy ogres, and '90s pop culture."

The Flea will also host a D&D-inspired art exhibit: "Doomslangers," artist Casey Jex Smith's works focusing on a "D&D adventure to save the mythical city of Dingershare from the evil Lord Ricaek."
