d12. Curiosity

A shriveled, shrunken corpse of a human that has no head.
The wings of twenty pixies.
A bloodied dagger wrapped in a piece of parchment. The parchment details the death of a righteous woman, who volunteered to die in place of an innocent.
A glass jar with a label on it stating, “Vampire ashes: Moren d’Grenouille, killed for avoiding death for centuries.”
A sketchbook showing the deaths of various beings. Each of them resemble murders done by an unknown agency within the past month.
A collection of vials containing blood. Each one has a pink label with a name on it.
Someone left rare, deadly mushrooms on the altar.
A cocoon containing the Death’s March butterfly is on the altar—soon it will release a butterfly the size of a human.
Someone planted a series of trees around the altar and decorated the branches with fingers and toes from beings of all kinds.
A simple list has been attached to the altar. Are the names on it for people who are living or dead?
A carved wooden box has a note on it that reads as follows: “If you take this to the next such altar—unopened—you will receive a boon from the Death God.”
Someone trapped elementals within glass spheres and placed them around the altar. All types of elementals are present.
