This is an acorn of mass destruction. It’s stored in a small box with room for six but only containing the one.
A strange, mystical box, with many rumours attached, that does not want to reveal its secret…
The PCs traveling along the road/path/trail begin to hear a low droning sound. As they approach they find their path obstructed by hundred of thousands of droning insects. Locusts swarm though the air, feasting on the grass and plants. Passage will be slowed, but the insects pose no threat to the party, aside from being crunchy and disgusting underfoot, climbing into pouches and eating exposed food goods.
