EFFECT

When this haunt is triggered, its effects differ depending on whether the skull and jawbone match. If an improper jawbone is matched, the skulls erupt in a chorus of clacking jaws, driving all occupants in the area mad with an insanity effect (save DC 23). If the correct jawbone is attached, a speak with dead effect is triggered, allowing the creature who placed the jawbone to ask six questions of the spirit of the skull. If communication is enabled, the spirits of the skulls are neutral evil and can answer questions on the topics undeath and unholy rebirth. Assume any skull has a Knowledge (religion) skill of 3d4+5, and a +5 in all other Knowledge skills.

DESTRUCTION

Only the complete destruction of all of the skulls in this chamber can permanently destroy this haunt.
