1 Halfling (or Gnome, bloody light Human, Elf or 1/2 elf)
6 to 12 iron spikes for the afore mentioned character, plus 1 or 2 for the quivers of arrows
a few short (by comparison) lengths of rope
1 bow and 1 or 2 quivers of arrows
1 hammer (unless you really want to try and hammer them into the stone ceiling by hand), mace, hammer, or other top heavy implement would suffice.
Hammer spikes into ceiling
Secure character to spikes with rope, do the same for the quivers
Have everyone else looking docile below the character on the ceiling, playing the afore mentioned Nim with spare spikes if you wish.

Appearing a small ballista bolt, this ‘bolt’ is actually an arrow used by a god from a long-dead pantheon. Some sages theorize it was a weapon crafted by Loki to slay the world tree. Why it was never used escapes them however.
The spear has a divine-level anti-plant effect. When driven into the soil point first, an ever widening circle of destruction radiates out from the point, killing any plant material. Perfect for holding a kingdom’s food supply for ransom. Any who bear this device are cursed so any plant-based materials they touch crumbles to ash.
