Default Re: DF Adventure: Finn's Forest

If any PC touches a rune on the large rock blocking the entrance to the burial mound of the lizard people, then within 10 minutes the PCs will have Per chance to hear the flapping of large wings. High above the PCs is Gavaran, ruler of the forest, flying upon a huge griffin. Gavaran will descend toward the PCs. He is wearing armor made from tree bark and he is grasping the reigns with one hand and with the other he is pulling acorns off of his necklace. He will cast these down toward the PCs and then will fly away exclaiming that death will be swift.

When the acorns (1 per 2 PCs) hit the ground, they will sprout immediately and grow in 2 seconds into huge tree beings. These tree beings have eyes, noses and mouths on their trunk and can use up to 4 branches as arms. They are over 20 feet tall and will shamble towards the PCs with roots that serve as legs. If the PCsprevent the acorns from hitting the ground then they will not sprout.
