The Rooftop Ondine

Urban Hexcrawl encounter 32

Just appeared one day in the pond-sized pool of water that had collected on the roof since the “real estate mogul” who owns the building found that a little benign neglect of the drainage system was another good way to squeeze a little more profit out of the place. The pool is barely more than knee deep but the ondine refuses to leave because she enjoys the view. Half the residents would be just as happy to get rid of her since her occasional singing keeps luring people up to the roof where they fail to drown because the water’s too shallow, but stumble back downstairs soaked in filthy water & occasionally sick with something bacterial. The other half want to keep her since she rewards offerings of trinkets with minor blessings – help finding a lost phone or a tip on who will respond favorably to a romantic overture.
