To Take What is Given
an Anglo-Saxon Encounter

: A mound arises in the distance. Covered in verdant grass and flanked by fertile fields, it would appear inviting to most. 

Those who approach will find a hole atop its 20' height that's large enough for one party member to fit through at a time. Still, gazing through it will reveal something different depending on who looks (roll 1d4): [1] a gentle glowing, [2] total darkness, [3] a burial chamber, [4] the thing they most desire- so it may be unclear just how inviting the mound might actually be.

Main Event: Those with the courage (or curiosity) to enter will find it to indeed be a burial mound, roughly 10' deep by 10' long by 30' wide, replete with various Anglo-Saxon items of value (per Referee). Holy symbols of Ing are prominent.
ConsiderationsAny who attempt to remove an item will be accosted by 1d4 ylfe (Anglo-Saxon elves- see Part III). These have been called up by Frithugeorn (see below) to guard the treasures here.

(Anglo-Saxon elves)
Align: N, MV: 40’, AC: 5, HD: 1+1, Atk: 1 (seax), Dmg: 1d5, SP: each has 1 random high elf (link& 1 gray elf ability (link), SV: F1, Mor: 6, Items: chainmail, seax, 1d6 gold pieces.

Those who leave the mound will be greeted by Frithugeorn himself, priest of Ing. If they are still carrying any items from the mound, he will attack. If not, then he will be congenial. If any are attractive females, then he will be very congenial.
