Bear Bone Flute of the Temple of The Smiling Piper
The Flute is a wider than average but relatively normal looking one, except for the weighted bellows permanently affixed to one end. It appeared at dawn on the first of the Piper’s High Holidays upon the altar of the Melodious Temple, three years ago.
When the bellows are lifted and released, the Bear Bone Flute plays itself with a hauntingly glorious tune. The first time it is heard each day it grants its listeners + 1 forward and eases pain and suffering, lifting spirits and reducing the healing time for debilities by a day.
Last week the Avatar of the Smiling Piper came down to grant boons to the faithful. When thanked for the Flute, he displayed ignorance and confusion. When presented with the Flute, he couldn’t see it. “Whatever it is you’re trying to show me, it didn’t come from The Piper’s grace.”
It was proposed that the Flute should be studied in depth, possibly dismantled to see what allows it to play its tune. When the acolytes regained consciousness they were coated in the bloody remains of the proposer.
The Temple staff have developed the tendency to leave the doors unlocked at night, with the Flute prominently displayed near the altar, within easy reach. Some of the members are openly willing to accept the blessings of the Flute without discerning where it came from. Most of the members have become notably silent whenever it is mentioned.
