The Castle at the Edge of the World
Automaton, Man being chased by zombies
This cast iron wind up toy depicts a man being chased by several zombies. If the key in its base is wound the man bounces up and down for a little bit as the zombies bob up and down more slowly. The man will fall down and the zombies will surround him.
When wound everyone within thirty feet of the automaton, except the person who wound it up, must make a DC18 will save or be assaulted by realistic visions of being chased by their worst fears. Those effected will flee from the automaton at their full movement rate for 1d8+4 rounds.
If wound more then once a day the mechanism will break and the automaton will become non magical.
