I think there's been too little credit awarded to the fearsome dungeon encounter: the gelatinous green cube. :-p
This silent stalker that devours and digests the unlucky adventurer to leave only bones and equipment left trapped inside it, until in the end they drop out of the cube and is left in a pool of acidic ooze.
It's meant to be alittle funny..hence the looks of the characters in it
Idea completed: Party of adventurers stumble upon something unknown..a large cube of green ooze. and before they know it, the little guy has to touch. As he does, tentacles starts to spawn and his two friends draw weapons (probably not the first time the little fellow has got them into a scuffle)
