Here’s an encounter idea for your DnD campaign.
Members of the social elite have started to go missing, and it seems they all have one thing in common.
They’ve all recently purchased and started religiously using Grelloton exercise bikes.
If players decide to investigate this mystery and ride one of the Grellotons themselves, they find their heads filled with telepathic voices, encouraging them to “keep on pedaling” and “never give up no matter the pain.”
After using the Grelloton for a period of time, a failed Con save results in the user collapsing from exhaustion.
Once the rider is out of commission, the bike magically opens a portal so paralyzing Grell tentacles can whisk them away into the Underdark.
Apparently, an entrepreneurial mind flayer is behind the Grelloton bikes, and he’s made special arrangements with the Grell: they feast on the bodies while the mind flayer collects the brains of the victims.
