That looks interesting, I make a search check for loot.
Wait... what comes at me?
Also known as the Circle of Soul Stealing, a devious and powerful trap
Money=zombies. Who knew that the room with pictures of people getting killed would spawn undead things trying to kill you?
The door that cannot be reached, the wall that cannot be climbed

The adventure can take place in a slightly shifted reality, where everybody has a totem (an animal guardian). The totem should be chosen randomly and not by the player, it is ok if "Gorflin the Large," a gigantic and aggressive barbarian, has a mouse for a totem.
These totems will assist the characters in small way. It is up to the characters to determine how to get the assistance; the animals won't solve mysteries for the characters only supply the clues. The character may even have a dream where his or her totem actually speaks to them and reveals some sort of clue.
