Dungeons, as well as manor houses, castles and other buildings, have walls, as well as floors and ceilings. These surfaces may often be blank, simply plastered, covered in tapestries or just unfinished. They may, however, have another form of adornment.
This supplement lists 100 different descriptions for designs that could be directly applied to a wall, floor or ceiling. These can be used to misdirect players by making them thing the decoration described is important, or they could be used to hold clues or hide secret doors or compartments. Although many will technically be valuable, removing an entire wall, floor or ceiling intact will not be easy. They cover a range from horrific designs suitable for evil lairs and locations to rather more pleasant ones suited for areas frequented by good.
To use the list, either roll d100 for a random result or select appropriate ones manually.
Here are some sample results:
28. Hundreds of soldiers in groups of six are carrying biers on their shoulders bearing the bodies of the dead who have fallen in battle. The biers are being carried through a city gate with large, metal-studded wooden doors, set into a huge, smooth stone wall. Standing watching the procession are many women and children, all of whom would appear to be crying, and two pairs of soldiers armed with spears are standing to attention on each side of the gate.
29. This shows simply an image of the sun. Various dots cover its face, suggesting sunspots, and long, curling prominences shoot off into space and back again. Rays of light, that are the most unrealistic part of the whole image, are spreading out from the central sun. If the sun is stared at for long enough, the dots that seemed to be sunspots start to suggest that the sun has a face, and a cruel one at that.
30. Demonic creatures of different forms, some with wings, some with tails, some with normal flesh and some with scaled, most with horns, from small stubs to huge, curling affairs, are seated or, in some cases, standing, where the creature in question doesn’t look capable of sitting down, around a huge bloodstained table. Plates and platters cover the table, each holding joints of raw meat. The meat in question is clearly that of sentient beings, humans and similar in shape, for there are arms and legs as well as the odd severed head as a centrepiece. Most of the heads are missing
their eyes; one creature is stabbing a claw into an eye socket to remove the eye to eat.
