>>81723068There exists a dungeon populated by skeletons. It has been ignored by adventurers for years and all loot having long since been pilfered. The skeletons live in a complex and unique society having developed a language consisting of popping joints, clacking teeth, and grinding molars.To establish dominance against the alpha skeleton, a rival skeleton can attempt to challenge the alpha to a rattle contest. The skeleton who can rattle their bones the loudest is the Victor. The younger skeleton shakes and gyrates with all their might, but they more experienced alpha barely appears to move, using precise and uniform vibrations across their entire body generating a mighty rattle that shakes the walls. The weaker skeleton learns his place as it is awed by the masterful display of the alpha.
>>81723148The true nature of the rattle battle has long been a mystery to mankind, thank you for sharing this insight with all of us.
>>81723174Got the answer from a revived man who was once a skeleton.Sadly, he died not long after in order to 'escape this Hellish flesh prison and return to purity' by belly flopping into a surprised gelatinous cube.
>>81723148this is great.
>>81723148Oh great and wise skeleton loremaster, how do the skeletons play each other's ribs like xylophones?
