Hex Crawl Easter Egg

Just something that popped into my head today. Use it in your next hex crawl and see if the PCs (or more correctly, the players) pick up what you’re putting down.

Hex XXXX: A shallow grave lies in an overgrown thicket that stands here alongside the river. Excavating the grave reveals the rotted, mostly skeletal corpse of a halfling. His tattered clothing identifies him as being a River Halfling in life. A careful examination of the corpse discovers he was strangled to death.

Me thinks there is a ring of truth to this story, it rings true...

One thing I love about the open sandbox is the ability to drop things like this in there.

A random grave in the Japanese version of Final Fantasy 1 says: "Here Lies Link".

In the American version it's a Dragon Warrior character.

I'm not picking up what you're putting down. Not sure if I should be ashamed.

Would it help if I told you the dead hobbit was murdered for his unwillingness to give his friend a birthday present?

Nice. I forgot about that.

Creatures like halflings, but the only one we know of was awful and tried to ruin the adventure...clearly they were kender.
