Working on this encounter from my Escaping Kazarak Encounter Checklist
I’ve got the following scene set, I just need to come up with a custom move, I think.
Waterfall of Treasure
You round the corner and see a squat round being (a xorn, see Plundergrounds #2, Threats, kz-10), seemingly made of stone, that is standing on its three legs and using its three arms to shove rocks and debris into the giant mouth that makes up the top of its body. With every bite of its three jawed mouth, you feel a pulse of heat emanate out from it as it warms the room. It must have been in this area for a while as the walls and floor are full of holes. Below its feet you can see lace-like caverns spider webbing into the darkness. After a moment or two, one of its three eyes rotates and fixates in your general direction and it takes a step towards. Just then, a crack in the stone structure above it widens and crumbles away as a waterfall of gold coins and treasure jets forth from a giant secret treasury and crushes the being, killing it instantly.
And the treasure keeps coming, more than should realistically exist in the world. At first, it forms a giant mound completely obscuring the monster. Then, you notice, it starts to fall away and you hear a distant tinkling as it begins falling into the caverns below. You also hear cracking and popping sounds and the floor feeling like it is shifting under your feet.
What do you do?
