Still on the road, so just a quick hit today. For those of you that haven't figured it out yet, my posts are scheduled weeks in advance. As you read these words, I am cooling my heels working in San Francisco for a month. While I'm gone, please enjoy this filler post featuring a single cheap piece of furniture.
It's just a simple wood frame with some reflective paper glued to it. Nothing fancy construction-wise.
I love love love otherwise empty rooms that contain one single feature. In ordinary circumstances this might be a normal mirror. Finding it as the only feature inside a large stone room deep in a dangerous dungeon, the odds are good that it is as valuable as it is dangerous. Even just putting in place as a valuable magic item will challenge the players. Now they can ignore the obvious loot or struggle to haul something as fragile as it is bulky up and out of a hostile environment. Good luck with that!
