This pillar is a bit different… the panels at the bottom are very dusty and untouched. You reach out to see if a panel moves…

And one panel bites you! Oh no, A MIMIC! A monster disguising itself as part of the pillar! It grapples you against the pillar and unfortunately, as a mere librarian, you have no weapons to fight back. The last thing you hear is the crunching and a chuntering of “nom nom nom”. You die a horrible death, but the library mimic is at least well fed.

YOU DIE
