The Lament Configuration


The Lament Configuration
This is the first and most famous puzzle box, created by Philippe Le Merchant in 1768. This box opens the gate to Hell and calls forth the guardians of the box, the Cenobites. These vile creatures will then drag you back to Hell with them… Preferably screaming!

But as the box holds the power to open the gate, then also does it hold the power to close the gate and send the Cenobites back to Hell.

Solving the puzzle: (DC 20) Sanity loss: d4/d10
(+1 rank to Knowledge Forbidden Lore)*
