If it is not filled with water and insoluble white flakes, then it is not really a snow globe.
On the other hand, I like the thought of a device that can predict the weather without the mage having to cast a spell. I thought your sub was well written, with a clear description, and a good history.

Why would a prisoner (accused of murder) become a guard? Why not just escape? What kind of "odd jobs" can a prisoner do to earn money from guards? Alot of this doesn't make much sense. I could see him bribing the guards to leave a gate or two open, but that is about it. Go to Comment
I too like the name and the idea of clues on the skeletals heads. However, my players are too smart for a scenario like this and would go through it very quickly. Also, they would need some serious motivation to even continue once they were told to go back to the original room. They would probably just leave.
If the only way out was the room behind the throne, that would be different. Go to Comment
