A puzzle room for the Blue Baron Part Deux

31.  Mirror, mirror on the wall?  The door to this room is locked.  Inside the room is the following, There is a large wooden door to the east.  Along the northern wall is a small table with a very intricate woven picture, To the west of the picture is bare wall, and along the southern wall are two treasure chests.

The picture depicts the following:  There is a large wooden door to the east.  Along the northern wall is a small table with a picture on it, To the west of the picture is a large floor length mirror, and along the southern wall are two treasure chests.  

Both chest are trapped with poison (1d6 damage on a failed saving throw vs poison) Inside the west treasure chest is a bag of gold (100 GPs) and a piece of chalk.  In the eastern chest there is 50 SPs, a black candle, some charcoal and a flint. 

In order to open the secret door, the PCs must realize that there is something missing from the picture (the mirror), they must then draw an outline of the door where it is located on the picture.  They can use either the chalk or the charcoal.  If the PCs are unable to figure out the puzzle, the referee can have them make a wisdom check when “peering” at the picture.  Once the secret door is opened both chests will disappear into the floor via a sliding panel.  The picture will change to show a blank wall with no mirror.  The picture is a curiosity and is worth 30 GPs to the right buyer. 

NOTE:  People say that you should write the dungeons that you want to play in.  I want to play in this!
