Goatman bagpipe

Mar 07, 2022

Magic item in Dolmenwood: The bag of bleats

Appearance: A bagpipe made from the torso of a long-horn goatman noble. Dark grey fur covers it with the head and horns prominently displayed on the back of the instrument.

  • The eyes sometimes open staring pleadingly at anyone near by
  • Mushrooms grow in the fur
  • Makes horrible bleating sounds when played (eeirly similar to a cry for help in Gaffe)
  • Smells like old cheese and it gets even worse when it is played

Effects:

  • Goatmen must make morale check of flee
  • Proficient players (such as a bard or minstrel) can with a 1-in-6 play a horrid note that breaks glass within 30' radius

History: Made by Drune to help chase out Goatman settlers from the circle of Chell. Has since been lost somewhere under the eaves of the Dolmenwood.
